A Call to Executive and Professional Women – Part III (Final)

Planck Mission, Matter in the Observable Universe

A CALL TO EXECUTIVE AND PROFESSIONAL WOMEN– Part III  (originally published 2013)

What usually stops a woman from discovering and then attaining to her fullness is her often-unintentional emotional involvement with her surrounding world.  This characteristic defines her difficulty as well as her inimitable strength in the energy-world ruled by sensitivity as a tool, richer and more accurate than intuition.

Nobody has the right to dictate what you are, what you wish, or to impose the direction of your life. You determine this yourself, based on a clear perception of causes, and the probable effects that you set into motion. This implies the conscious and deliberate knowledge and management of your own energies, as the prerequisite for the management of your world.

Self mastery doesn’t happen through nice behaviour; it requires hard work in going against the tide.  It consists in clearing up all that is not real in your world, the beliefs, the illusions, the superficial, the obsession with purely cutaneous sensations, and the addiction to the intensity of false emotions.  It requires effort to […]

A Call to Executive and Professional Women – Part II

originally published in 2013

The experience of a great number of professional women tells them that there is ceiling, a limit imposed that is both transparent and tangible, like glass. Restrained by the schema of the current male cycle, they feel unable to be themselves and free, and sense an overwhelming need to break through. The permission now granted by the ruling powers to “approve” of women in executive positions and to implement what in their view are “feminine” work ethics, only reinforces the old regime that regulates women according to one fixed pattern, mens’.  The only way out, apparently, is to push against the current with the same aggressive force used by the opposition.  It is a tug of war that only depletes women and leads nowhere.

Science tells us that only a superior force can win over another.  The difference must be one of quality and intensity.  Women have it but don’t recognize it.  At the moment, they are shadowboxing with their own phantoms, an accrued emotional warehouse of feminine frustration down the ages.  When we confront a belief, as […]

A Call to Executive and Professional Women – Part I

Do you want to manifest a different world, a world that, as a woman, you know is possible?

A woman leader today needs to be many things, including embodying the magic of the priestess.  This is why the professional woman needs to understand how spiritual precepts help her manage life and raise the level of efficiency as well as realisation and satisfaction.

Professional women who have conquered all odds to get to where they are as innovators and leaders of nations, the economy and corporations, are the greatest and most dynamic example of womanhood today.  They are also greatly misunderstood, even by themselves, paying a high price for the power they wield. Their management of strategy and positioning is admirable, equal to that of any man.  Accused of being too much like a man, in truth the devastating strength they exhibit is no less feminine; it is emblematic of the active, fiery side of woman. They bear a great burden and responsibility on firm shoulders and with a great heart.  These women see the inner dynamic of people, events and conditions.  They […]

KNOW THYSELF XX: THE STRUGGLE BETWEEN BEING AND THE PERSONALITY

KNOW THYSELF XX

THE STRUGGLE BETWEEN BEING AND THE PERSONALITY

Identity

Being (spirit self, I AM) is a state, a resonant experience of wholeness as quality, subjective, and intimate. Pure perception without content; I simply Am.

This is difficult to grasp or appreciate in our everyday reality.

Intuitively we fall into this state when in love, reverie or meditation; all fine perception is heightened. Millions of delicate, invisible, and receptive antennae spread into infinity, highly sensitive of space itself. It is about motion and quality.

However Being is not equipped for three-dimensional existence. In order to accumulate experience in energy management of different sorts, a form is required, a structure that enables it to connect with and distinguish itself from its surroundings. The body provides such a form, and through it personality develops. These are almost the same thing, manifesting both the visible and subtle structure that surrounds Being.

In the same way that Being needs a form, Consciousness requires a focal point of awareness through which to manage vitality as it weaves its innumerable textures of experience in matter. Usually, […]

MEDITATION AND SENSITIVITY

MEDITATION AND SENSITIVITY

The foundation of spirituality is meditation. What defines it?

The intent and the journey itself are the determining factors. Arriving at a special inner space where we feel full, authentic, centered, focused, clear and empowered requires that we allow ourselves to perceive beyond material and mental objectives. When we become aware of process rather than end result, the reality that reveals itself to us is expansive, deep, inclusive and highly satisfying. Whatever the style, the goal in meditation is the experience of a natural transcendence that awakens usually hidden aspects of life.

It is a common mistake to think that we “do” meditation. In truth, the only activity involved is whatever is necessary to shift our attention away from common distractions so that we perceive a much broader scenario. Meditation captures motion and impressions that occur beyond the threshold of ordinary senses. For the authentic meditator it includes daily life and all the in-betweens, particularly other dimensions of Consciousness. It involves the subtle world of sensitivities and experiences so characteristic of higher dimensional levels. In this sense, high philosophy and […]

Know Thyself I

FEMININE FORCE

Several thousand years ago the light that enabled feminine consciousness was extinguished in all but a handful of sources.  Those of us who yearn for its return are here to once again ignite that flame, that we may arise, claim our birthright, and light the world.

A woman must cultivate her sensitivity in order to develop her full capabilities. It is easy for a woman to lose herself in emotional agitation and mental conflict.  Her body absorbs everything and then becomes a tangle of sensations and feelings, difficult to decode and control. If she is to attain to the mastery that is her birthright, she must be able to distinguish sensitivity from sensibility.

To counteract the natural confusion we live in, modern women develop the intellect as men do, in our common educational system and values, but this is not enough. Woman’s mind is a rich, complex kaleidoscope of simultaneous possibilities linked to a sensitive webbing that needs to be recognized, explored, and developed.  Devoid of her deepest impulses and delicate machinery, she becomes dry and brittle, incapable of reaching and […]

THE REWARD

THE REWARD

Upon birth, social programming injects a secret virus upon every human. We might even say it is the unspoken challenge that drives a soul through life.

Disguised as aspiration for authenticity, it consistently denies the possibility of attaining it. No matter what part of the world we come from, what religion we profess, what cultural or economic level we work through, or what gender colors our perception, a human being grows up to assume that they deserve better. Trophies. Poor and rich alike, somewhere, sometime, a prize is forthcoming for all the sacrifices and privations we are forced to endure. Like a carrot perpetually dangling in front of the horizon, the disease is embedded in the attitude that we possess the right to future rewards, importance, status, approval and recognition.

From our parents and our family, our surroundings, and every step we take, we voluntarily submit to discomfort, humiliation, and a wide variety of abuses that obligate us to go against our nature. We resign ourselves to physical deformation, fat or thin, muscular or weak, in order to comply […]

FUTURE FOR LITTLE GIRLS

FUTURE FOR LITTLE GIRLS

In the 1950’s when I started schooling, little girls were brought up to please, make babies, and look pretty. The only avenue for growth available to the female gender was a “good” academic education. But, it offered a dubious freedom. Rote learning had been left behind a decade earlier, but not the mentality behind it. Learning and information were stressed while understanding and sensitivity were enigmatically left to fate or to the imagination. Inbred feminine survival instinct kept women repressed and neurotic on the inside, while carefully molding an appearance of acceptable freedom.

In 1965 I received a degree from an Ivy League university and a year later another. Rather than grant me freedom, my intellectual development only augmented a sense of alienation. The aggressive climate of politics, racism, continuous sensory assault, the feminist liberation campaign and other movements both diffused and exacerbated complexities, focusing almost exclusively on behavioral display and surface relief of tensions. Oppression and violence, rampant military regimes, leftist revolutions, and hopeless death tolls in the name of human rights defined the […]

ALONENESS IS NOT LONELY

ALONENESS IS NOT LONELY

“There is a hole in aloneness that leads into everythingness.”   –  ZR

Normally, we don’t know how to be alone.  We look for things to occupy our time and space, and immerse ourselves in projects, people and intensities, anything so as not to feel ourselves.  Many people who claim to enjoy being alone use isolation as an excuse to do and be as they please, without distractions, diving into some activity or another to cover up the fear of insufficiency, meaninglessness, and their own selfishness.  This is not aloneness.

Aloneness is pure experiencing, free from boundaries or targets.  We are at the centre as sentient observers, but do not concern ourselves with any self-description or reflection.  Instead, the experience suggests a positioning whereby we are whole, good, perfect, and in a sense irrelevant.  There is no time and space in the experience of Self.  There is nothing to criticize, complain about, compete with, or achieve.  It is an utterly sensitive participation in the totality of life in any given moment, as deep as it can be subtle.  Aloneness […]

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

WHAT’S IN A NAME?

“What’s in a name?  That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet… Romeo, doff thy name, and for that name which is no part of thee, take all myself.” (William Shakespeare, “Romeo and Juliet”)

Woman is one with Nature.  As a force, she controls without intending to; she follows without submitting.  She embodies the spirit of cooperation, not because she reasons it out but because her nature embraces the whole.

Can anything be greater than the miracle and vastness of Creation?  At her core a woman is the totality of the life forces that engender creation, but it seems that this is not enough.  Unawares, a woman persistently defines herself, chooses to be defined, and sets out to fulfil the expectations of others.  What does it take to see that her opinions of herself are controlled by others, and by a patriarchal model of the past?

To answer the proverbial question, “who am I?” instead of becoming aware of ourselves feeling, we look to references, precedent, opinions and expectations with the hope that others […]
