Women, do you agree with this article on the females downfall and the way she really is naturally spiritual?

A WRONG POINT OF VIEW
There is a certain way of looking at the world, accepted by both men and women. There are women who want to be independent, but they are so scared of not belonging to anyone. An unmarried woman feels like she is to be felt sorry for, but an unmarried man is to be envied.

The woman wants to build her fate with her own hands, but there are lots of women who say, if they fail, “I’m only a woman”. Generally there aren’t many young men who make an ideal out of the “I’m getting married” idea, but there are still so many women who do, turning their marriage into a career.

The woman who has to stay home with her children is often identified with the idea of weakness and she is considered a passive human being that needs protection, physical, but also moral, social and legal.

Many people still have the tendency of despising an intelligent, cultivated, active woman because she doesn’t fit the feminine stereotype they know. Just like they tend to despise a sensitive and gentle man because he doesn’t fit their own idea of virility.

In the contemporary society men who succeed are “virile”, which means ambitious, aggressive, without scruples, money chasing and glory chasing. At the same time modest, generous and sensitive men are considered effeminate.

For many men, still, the woman who flatters his ego should be very beautiful, elegant, a good mother, a faithful wife, and also a passive, ignorant and capricious woman. You will hear very often the idea that femininity is the same with passivity, weakness, stupidity and immorality.

THE WOMAN’S “DREAM”
Women got to accept their depreciation completely because of their education and of the society. The scorn towards women is still alive at both sexes. There are many women who do not accept them as women being convinced that being a man is the real gift of God.

Menstruation, birth, menopause, they all have created the prejudice that a woman is someone who depends on nature and on her own body and that’s why she cannot reach the levels of intelligence, creativity and spirituality that a man can.

In order to fit the “new image” of femininity, a lot of women waste their few spare time reading stupid magazines, chasing for the dress that will get out of fashion only a few months later, concerning too much about their hair and creating an existence filled with frivolous patterns.

Thus they waste the time they could have used in knowing themselves and this stops them from thinking of the purpose of their lives.

Nowadays, the women, who were underestimated century by century, make the big mistake of wishing to have man’s “superiority”, considering it as true freedom and personal achievement. The woman dreams to replace the man, to become an Amazon.

But it is not solving the problem, but only reversing the roles. Though there are biological differences between men and women that make them behave differently in certain conditions, these differences are too small in comparison to what men and women have in common as humans.

Setting the woman free of all prejudices is not an act that depends only on women. It depends on the entire world. The humanity’s outlook about woman is an expression of its conscience level.

WOMAN’S GREATNESS LEADS THE WORLD TO GOD
Most women do not know their possibilities, many have been left out in ignorance, and others have given up their studies because they had a baby and many others don’t even have a professional background.

How is it possible for a woman to become independent and to have a creative activity when her soul and mind are not treated the right way, are not cultivated? The problem for a woman is to know how to resist the society’s conceptions about women and how to open up to her real mission, which is a spiritual one.

There were times when the woman was more than a simple human being. She was the embodiment of Fecundity, Earth, Nature and Life. She was identified with the goddesses that governed the different aspects of life and thus she was considered sacred.

The woman was worshiped in certain periods of time. She was a goddess or a priestess (the vestals, the hetaerae ) or she was a muse. She was the embodiment of Beauty, Grace, Gentility and Kindness. She was the Mother, the Wife, the Lover, and the one who lead the man to God.

She embodied the Absolute and has got the mission of orienting the world to the Ultimate Supreme Reality. The spirit of the Universe comes to meet the man because of the Woman. The Woman’s Greatness is that of leading the world to God.

She holds the world’s possibility to reach the Divine Light through life’s profound spiritualization and also to destroy it by amplifying its inferior tendencies. The Woman always comes up or falls because there is no other option for her.

WOMAN’S SPIRITUAL SENSE OF LIFE
Waking up the feminine qualities is the way she gives herself to life. She cannot find fulfilment outside her being, except by accepting herself completely and consciously. And acceptance means not only becoming aware of her being a woman physiologically speaking, but also becoming conscious of her feminine qualities and of her role in this world.

Her spiritual sense of life is that of turning people’s limited vision to the essence of the world through the wonderful manifestation of her Femininity. The woman has got the Principle of Creating the Universe in her. This principle makes everything move.

.
Nowadays women are a lot more open to spirituality than men are, but they are not aware of their power and force that can change and wake up the entire world. They remain weak and passive, lost in small, unimportant things, accepting everything without even thinking of making a difference. And that’s because they do not know that they can do it some other way!

It is time for the woman to learn to know herself better, to remind her of the light in her soul, to admit it and to see it in others, too. It is time for her to show the man the path to the light through her shining way of being. Both of them, together, enriched through love and union, can get higher to Immortality Land

  • Wow, an article about the Great American Female Identity Crisis. I’ve never seen that before. It’s just another sexist article that complains about sexism.

  • This is a joke, right? whoever wrote this so called article can’t even write with correct grammar or spelling
    “Women got to accept their depreciation” what is that ???
    I laughed so hard I fell off my chair thanks for the 2 points

  • except for the first two paragraphs(bcos it doesnt sound like me 🙂 ) I agree with everything else …especially the stereotypes and subjugation thing- which is pathetic and sad but true

    But I feel that the women are not to b blamed for this- they are constantly put in a shell thats too oppressive and pressing from all sides..its not easy to break even for the strongest and most wise women..and conditions are strong enough to make person used to over the time- habit is a deadner and its human nature to be adapted to circumstances over the time
    but ofcourse with spirituality its possible; its spirituality which alone can break all false barriers..for a spiritual woman thats possible rather inevitable

    My homage to the great Saint Mira bai

  • A very interesting article!

    Women have had a more spiritual impact on my life than men. I don’t think this by design on my part. Least, I don’t think so….

    Oh boy, I hate to say this, but its true for me: I am spiritually attracted (as opposed to physically or sexually) to women more than men. I find that a certain combination of spirituality and loving compassion draws me in.

    Bottom line: I’m a sexist. I know this. Is this a fault?

  • The problem is that women lost their power because they gave it away. There is great power in motherhood, the home-maker, the “keeper of the keys” so to speak. Only, woman began to think of these things as not as important in the world as the work of the so-called breadwinner. When that happened, women started acting like men, even dressing like them. They subverted their femininity to compete with men. This was a mistake. Woman has so much power being the one who carries life, who makes a house a home, who loves her children unconditionally. Nowadays, many women even look down on true motherhood, only having children and paying for someone else to raise them so that they can be “successful” in their own eyes and in the eyes of men. So much is lost in this. For who shows the child how to love as deeply as a loving mother?
    I am a mother, a woman, a lover, and I am powerful because I know that the love I embody is the most powerful force in the universe, and not even Warren Buffet or Bill Gates has anything on me when it comes to being powerful, successful or rich.

  • Hm… what is a male, what is a female ?

    What is natural ? What is spiritual ?

    Ha… and then what is downfall ?

    What an exciting myth this… that which we are living… so much to explore !! 🙂

  • I read what you wrote, and some of it I do not agree on, but since I am a Woman I guess you are going to say that she’s a Woman so of course she does not agree.
    I am going to tell you a little about myself so you can pass judgment on me, I have always been a fighter for Women’s rights, not publicly but by telling those Women who were mistreated by their Spouses, not to belittle themselves, in thinking that Men is superior to Women.
    We, Women and Men were created equal, in the olden days, Women had to do everything for the Men, but, as time went on we Women arise above all that, and we demanded respect and equality the same as any Men.
    I got Married at the age of 16, and have never regretted that decision, I was a dutiful Wife was at the beck and call for my Husband’s every need, I raised my Family, of seven kids boys and girls, when the last one was in School I, went and got my GED, and enrolled in College, for my Associates, not because I wanted to work, but because I wanted to prove that I too, could finish my Education, it cost me a lot of hassel from my Husband since he wanted me to be at Home when he got of Work, but I perservered, and that made me feel ten feet tall and yes I am a very religious Woman, and instill the word of God to my Family as well, since we were born to Live our Lives as God wanted us to do.

  • I am a single woman and proud thank you very much I have the power hehehe and I am learning the ancient wisdom woman are the keepers of this :)) We are part of the Mother earth so true……………

    Woman have come a long way since my Mothers time growing up more woman are independent and working and living on their own :)))I think many men to are open and respecting of this for in the womans power is the mans power :))))

    I have been reading about the sisters of the shield ancient Shaman teachings….and it is true that woman give there power away to quickly instead on holding on to their Spirit Shields in this life it is a slow process to enlightenment and I am here for all woman and men alike to spread the word :))) Thanks for your great thoughts :))))You truly understand :))))

  • You address this to women; but as a man do I speak and only as a man.

    I conclude just the reverse of what ‘Cattie-brie Loves Donkeys’ thinks, that there must be a man writing this. I differ. I have the impression that a woman wrote these lines or at least a measure imported by both genders — if not written then assuredly felt by both.

    But, it only appears to observe the foregone applications and shares little indication of one having mastered certain key principles first-hand.

    But no matter, its entirety covers what is or appears to be — and not what does and how to carry new and differently; thereto is far too passive and un-engaging an account of women to provide a good compass.

    On behalf of women I say this. I do not see where women cannot again resolve to the passage as written out and aspired-to above: “She [once] embodied the Absolute and has got the mission of orienting the world to the Ultimate Supreme Reality.”

    And this is on point both in the subtle and gross, for it was and is to this that women were and are to show men if not the world how to live, how to live, how to live…emphatically do I say this. Equally, encumbent is it upon men to show women how to order and systematize life and things and to factor consequences and abide the laws of personal boundary.

    There is yet a prefatory action that must be brought to bear to avail this all to occur. We have not yet evidenced in whole or even soundly in part just how to affirm and initiate the efforts needing made by both women and men to manifest the natural traits in women, which, I might add, I know exist but are somehow occluded.

    Hence I see obstruction to women’s processions and a returning to their nativities are those posed by women themselves. And so far as this is not to be conceded in women, which is often the attitude, there shows almost at once an aversion, denials, and a precise want to self-justify, which penchant in women is practically developed unto a science.

    Maria Edgeworth wrote a most forthcoming essay in the 18th Century, which title is “On the Science of Self-Justification.” Edgeworth was a doting daughter on her father; she was a writer and educator, crazy about her dad. From his example and teaching — just as often is it the habit of a father to dote on his daughter — she concedes the folly in women but nonetheless seems to add, “So What?” as regards the manner in which women tend to maneuver men by means of caprice and finesse.

    My point — women are at that point where great opportunity is theirs to be had. They yet must provide for themselves the training and means to bear this forth, for the great mechanisms of the world — be they in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd world-countries, or for that matter among that of 4th world refugees — are devised and sustained and renovated by the sense and perceptions and sweat of men. Women must come to set and treat with men as to learn how to administer and run these great millennia-old mechanisms; men must come to be willing to avail women of the teachings.

    Such cannot be done by women merely posturing or putting up rhetoric or by men exhibiting their habit which is the hallmark, stock, and trade stubborness to others and in-confidences in themselves.

    Women have already a sound case as to their mistreatments and dismissing by men. This has ensued now for some seven thousand years. And so does it take considerable commitment by women — not imperious defiance — especially to settle this primordial impasse in some way, enough that they might set-to and willingly and comprehensively learn from those who have long mastered it — that, of course, happens to be their perennial nemeses — men themselves.

    And is it important that women come to this great point, to quell the sharpest edges in men, for the world has moved too far out of control and into imbalance and off from center — this, because men have made many mistakes; and so life generally has unbalanced far too much to the right, say, that is, to the masculine principle. Now is it time that the feminine principle be brought more to bear — but not by displaying the ever knee-jerk tactics as now employed by so many women today, especially among the supposed highly-educated women, Life forbid! Theirs is but a tit-for-tat strategies and point of view and far too radical in terms of causation and better sense and leaves theirs and all concerned most unhappy. There should be seen no weakness in women to want nurturing. This should be said. There is a price to pay for practicing these otherwise sorts of folly. I mean, haven’t women learned from the dunderhead examples who are the men that extremes do not import or serve?

    There must come now a balancing at each step of the processions, however slight these may be. Otherwise, the women will be on top and the cycle set by these extremes will cause men to again make a radical parity and shift to what women are now attempting to do and making a terrible mess of it in the midst of it all.

    A great part of this will be a great ado with bearing what men have borne for millennia. No more can women be accorded the boon of running with the foxes only to turn and hunt with the hounds at their whimsies. The courts as well will no longer favor them as has been the history, certainly in Western countries — especially in that of the United States. There will indeed be a required balancing and sharing affect and reality — in all spheres of engagement; there is no escaping this. No more will there be ardent morality posse nor the witch hunts against men for their penchant for pornography, a multi-billion-dollar industry, while women are exonerated of their vices such as their impassioned multi-billion-dollar industries of the vanities — couture, cosmetics, and their penchant for coin unshared.

    A rough go is ahead for those who dare seek of the true balances. But to those who seek it, I give to them a nod. For such incentive and valor is dearly and surely needed more than ever has been, and is inevitable occurring, and which ensues now, today, even as we speak in every institute.

  • Man & woman are human & are equal
    Without woman (Sakthi=Kali) man (Shiva) is inactive
    Kundalini energy is FEMALE dormant in men at root chahkra

  • *Choke* This reminds me of a book I was reading called “Hating Women” by Shmuley Boteach. I can relate to the first two sections, but I balk at this idea that one gender is more ‘spiritual’ than another. I start coughing when the same thing is said of men.
