Meditation for the Fully Realized Woman

By Karen Andes, CA

 

I am a BEAUTIFUL WOMAN,

with a beauty that doesn’t wash off.

I earned it, unearthed it,

rescued it like a jewel in the dust,

picked it up and made it shine.

 

For years, I did not see it,

though I sensed it was there.

Now it dazzles and thrives.

I am healthy, capable, independent,

strong yet still so fragile, floored by a sigh.

My body is that of a creator

— angles meeting curves, hardness drifting into soft.

 

I am mother, daughter, sister, lover to myself.

Embraceable and brave, I extend my heart.

My body is home, my home a shrine to life,

comfortable, warm and rich with treasures.

Mine is the scent of hit spices caught in a breeze,

mine the laughter that wings through the door.

 

I share myself only with those who honor me as I am

and protect myself, my house, and my time from invaders.

I search for my center in the midst of chaos,

practice peace as wild dogs clamor in my mind.

I use power for the greater good,

release rage in neutral settings,

with no one innocent in the line of fire.

 

I am learning how to persist and when to let go,

am willing to feel all emotion stop their depths and exaltations,

to wake up in every nerve

and no longer am afraid of my life.

Both my beauty and strength

transcend age, time, and perhaps even this lifetime.

 

Each day I am new, yet more at home in myself.

Moment by moment, I create my world

Cleaning House
Our messy thinking and sloppy habits come more easily into focus when our surroundings are tidy and beautiful and filled with only what is meaningful, so that we can release them, as well. A thorough house cleaning, internal as well as external, is a fabulous way to delineate the purpose of our l

What’s Important in Life?
–from Joan Chittister: Essential Writings Once upon a time, there was an elder who was respected for his piety and virtue. Whenever anyone asked him how he had become so holy, he always answered, “I know what is in the Qur’an.” So when the old man died, they raced one another to his hu

One For All and All For One Once and For All
