Dear Woman

As a woman in the 5th decade of life, I have witnessed The Women’s Rights Movement, the defeat of the  ERA (Equal Rights Ammendment) for the silly reason that uneducated people believed it would mean co-ed bathrooms. I have heard and read about female genital mutilation, rape to control and punish women in various cultures. I have seen the results of sexual assault as a therapist/social worker who counsels survivors of said traumas. I have observed the subservience of women in the guise of misogynistic spiritual beliefs. I have, with deep sadness, seen the impact of disregard for the Earth as Mother. We all pay the price for that.

AND I am heartened by a trend…that of men stepping forward and apologizing for what their gender has done, whether of not they have ever committed any of the aforementioned acts. The Divine Masculine is coming face to face with the Divine Feminine as together, we do the graceful dance of love and life.

A video called Dear Woman was created by author and speaker Gay Hendricks and author and awakening coach Arjuna Ardagh. It is a profoundly humble and bold form of communication that reaches beyond gender stereotype and into the heart of humanity. As I watched it, I experienced goosebumps and tears and it resonated as truth. Although I can’t speak for all women, for myself, I gratefully accept the offerings made by the men in the video.

Watch the video and I encourage you to take it to heart, whichever gender you happen to be.

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,
