No Longer a Prisoner of Thought

As I stepped outside of my thoughts, I saw them as the thoughts of my culture, my father, my mother, those who lived in my immediate vicinity.

I started to cling less and less to the persona that I called my personality. With insight, i was free to be. I could understand my life and which way I need to go.

Mindfulness Meditation and quiet contemplation moved me to the next evolutionary shift that we humans must make.

It is the one thing that will push Humanity forward from this stuck-on maintaining the status quo.

I turned around and look directly at my life and saw that I could transform myself and meet the challenge before me. It has been my mission to transform education ever since I entered the arena in 1992.

After leaving my fulltime job as an educator in 2001, I  began to see the slow decline in Democracy that we see on a national level.

This loss of purpose is directly related to the decline of the educational function of schools as a vehicle to transform the life of the child.

The Social Status of Women and the problems we face
and the inherent tribulations of following the Status Quo.
The life we live is a direct result of
generations of conditions that have worked together to
make the woman physically weak, mentally narrow and politically powerless.
It happens in the three systems that govern our lives.
Public Education; Criminal Justice and lastly Government.
What is the role Black Women will play?
What are the responsibilities to her community?
And lastly What type of leadership will emerge that will-restore Humanity?
I want you during this series to question the bigger mission for your life. It will help you find happiness and discover peace and tranquility.
During the last twenty-five years in public education, I searched for a way to express myself and contribute to society. What I found as I began to unearth the source of my suffering was a darkness and abyss so bleak that every time I looked in I would quiver and quake. I looked down into the darkness and dove in heart first to find meaning and purpose and quiet my restless heart.
Searching for a PANACEA to solve the deep-seated problems that plagued my happiness, Seven tools were revealed to me in the wee hours of the morning one day.
The Seven tools will awaken the deeper dimension of the self as you discover a more enlightened way of relating to life. We, Black women, are empowered through the feminine aspect of life. Learn to let go and let the life inside you unfold.
Listen with me as the Great Story of Woman is told, We write the history and tell the tale of woman’s rise to her natural state. We are empowered as women and mothers as we guide the world through story writing and conversation. Join me in building a New Human Community,

Part 3:  Re-imagine Feminine Leadership

On Becoming a Change Agent

cropped-remedy2.jpg

The Teacher is Like the Artist in the new schools of the future. She is the most important person in the Educational Reform Movement. Teaching becomes an art form. The way the teacher expresses her full potential. The material is her students. She stands back occasionally to look at the master piece that she has created. Students are engaged in the lesson, hands flung up towards the sky, eyes brimming and filled with wonder. One students speak and others listen intently, showing full respect to the speaker, wanting a turn because the voice is the sign of an intelligent mind put to good use. She has put her best work into shaping the canvas of the mind of youth. She paints a picture of justice and a love of learning. The sheer joy of exploring content and letting it live in her students is her just reward. She knows she will be evaluated on her skills as we look to her work.

She has completed her formal studies, fully grasping the material. Now it is time for it to live. It lives through her as she become the catalyst for learning. She follows no rote script, but relies on her own intuition and the spontaneity that arises in the learning environment. She teaches more than reading, writing and math. She teaches students how to immerse themselves in the moment and not be afraid to make mistakes. Because in the blunder there is a lesson.

She is animated by the material she presents because she knows that her subjects are children who have a heart and soul. She treats them as active participants in learning. Coaxing them to take risk and make mistakes. It is a dance of two.

The educator as Change Agent will renew society. It is a task that one walks into willingly. As you walk into your class room conscious of the role you play. You are the model onto which students value learning.

You are central to transforming society. We change the world by giving students what is central to their well-being. Education becomes more than imparting information. It became a vehicle to advance society and the lives of students.

Students are not there for the benefit of teachers. Teachers are there for students. You are not to live out your fantasy of ruling the lives of children, but there to guide them on a discovery. It is the world they want to know about. It is taught within the lesson. It is by having a positive student/teacher relationship that real learning and change take place.

PART 11:  Cultivating Revolutionary Relationships

In the New Feminine Leadership Culture

Once attuned to the natural world we women become self-organizing, harmonious and whole. There will be no need to look outside oneself for redemption. We will discover it in the work we do. Unfortunately, we women have not fully cultivated the power within for such a grand endeavor. When we awaken to how significant we are to influencing human life, all other pretenses will fade away.

It is nothing short of a miracle that females bring life into the world. We are closely furrowed to the growing embryo during pregnancy. This intimacy influences our nature which makes us best suited to guide human life.

Within our, DNA is the history of the human world, passed on from mother to child. An unbroken chain since the beginning of time. We are a particle of the Human Dynasty.

For millions of years, we have lived on earth growing and evolving.  Everything we know about the human body and mind is coded in our DNA. It is as instinctual as breathing. We need not focus on the task. The lungs inflate and deflate automatically. The heart beats and we take a step, such is the true nature of women.

Our genuine nature is compassion. We have compassion because we know the human condition is full of pain and heartache. Everyone undergoes birth, sickness, old age, and death. This is the Human Condition. We also share a common history and bond. Thus, the need for women to step out of the shadows and come into the light. It is the light that is needed at this dark moment in history.

We are the carriers of culture and must awaken to our noble mission to be caretakerscropped-headerimage-womanistempowermentseries_customlogodesign_opt2111.jpg of humanity. We are the ones who with transform the world. Once we embrace this noble calling there will be a groundswell of peace for the modern world.

As mothers, we create an intimate bond. With our heart, we guide. With our intuition, we care for the baby. Sensing her needs, we respond with our loving kindness. As the child grows so do our experience as women and mothers. The next child will receive improved care. Because we have become seasoned.

Mothers are the light of the family. You know, it is you who determines the direction of your family. You guide with an invisible hand, gently coaxing this way and that as you navigate through life. You hold the wisdom of countless mothers that have come before you.

We are our children’s first teacher. We find stories that will delight, stories that will guide our children in the dark world and stories that will inspire, motivate and empower.

I need you to come into the light and be a guide for not only your children but also the children you may teach. Children need for you to show up authentically so they will know and feel the power pulsating through you. It is the only thing that can reform education. It is your time to step up to a Revolutionary style of leadership.

You must not be afraid. There isn’t anything anyone can do to harm you. The changes you will make are internal. As you make inner changes they will show up automatically in your environment. Like the inner workings of a building. Under the foundation is the matter and workings which produce, heat, air conditioning, and light. As a child, I thought it was magical when I turned a switch and light illuminated the room. Not until I looked in the closet and saw the wires and switches that were hidden in the closet did I fully understand.

Such is the glorious mission of women to bring order to the world. But first you must understand what has kept the woman today powerless to make any real change in the world.  Todays’ women are mothers, wives, and lovers, second to man. If we are fortunate to have a man in our lives we are happy and satisfied. Still, there is a longing for something more.

Most women yearn to be a woman with an identity outside of being a mother and wife and working for someone. To proclaim to the world that I have something valuable to offer. That something will bring harmony to the world.

If we women continue to play second not only will our lives be shrouded in unfulfillment but we do a disservice to the world. The world seeks balance, like, Ying and Yang, up and down, in and out, woman and man, boy and girl. We have an essential role to play. Until we define that role, we will continue to seek fulfillment in things outside of ourselves or get lost in a relationship trying to be whole. We are complete just as we are. The only thing is to believe.

We are the carriers of culture. It is our responsibility to guide and mode children. As educators, we must begin to cultivate relationships that empower women and help to define the role of women in life. No longer is it acceptable to just do the job we must, be more. The world needs the feminine energy to balance the male.

For too long men have had their hand in shaping human life. Look what they have done. They have done all they can because men are ill-equipped for the job. Just like our current president is ill-equipped to be the president. We must stop following blindly those leaders just because they have been assigned the position. To hold the position requires more than a rigged election or to be put in power because you have the right skin or of the right gender.

Leaders must emerge that want to transform the world.

We must begin to build a feminine leadership culture based on the feminine principles of unity, interconnection, and harmony. There is a life pulsating inside of you, waiting to birth into the world. A self that is eternal, a self that knows and is connected to the wisdom of the world. You must take time to get in touch with this internal life.

We Women as educators have been given a sacred task. To ensure that society flourishes and thrives. The current leadership in the White House reminds me all too well that we must step out from behind the comfort of your desk and stand on the platform and announce to the world that we will lead the charge for a better future for our children. and society

If you came to education to make a difference? This is the right place. Currently, there is a moral decline in the world. It started the moment we traded in our voice for a paycheck. Mothers send their children out into the world ill-prepared to defend themselves from the educational system. A system that wants to take over as the life of the child.

Through our leadership, we can empower all children in our care. This is nothing short of a miracle. Like birth which is also a miracle. Do you believe in miracles? Do you see them every day as you gaze out your window and see the magnificent cities we live in? The wonderful gadgets technology has created to shrink the world down to a manageable size. To be able to speak and see someone on the other side of the world. These are small miracles. We too can create similar miracles with our intention.

It is the intention that sets the focus.  The forces then begin to align with your will. Everything you need will appear to make your dreams happen for you. You must lead with the wisdom deep in your life. All you need do is sit quietly in contemplation. Ask the God you believe in for the wisdom and the strength to move on to a higher plane of living.

 

Carriers of The Culture

Re-Imagine Feminine Leadership
Women Shape Culture

Today’s Woman wants a measure of freedom. A place that she can test her wings. It is in the classroom where she practices for her solo flight.

On the take off she organizes and instruct. Her pupils are the subjects upon which she inspires by her lead.

Students love her. They call out her. Little Emanuel wants all her attention and will do most anything.

As the cultural icon that shape human life, Woman has a tremendous responsibility.
She reads her script. Make it come alive and do a wondrous thing.

Unfortunately, most times she has her wings clipped by the looming ideas of what education should look like.

The American Educational System is designed for the white male to succeed. His curriculum sheds light on his accomplishments and his mode of learning.

Oftentimes this model does more damage to a fragile psyche of a growing child. That which was established is the 1950’s has outlived its’ usefulness.

I like the model of the Chinese Educational System. In this system, the child’s first few years of school are dedicated to students learning the skills necessary for socialization and getting along with his peers and teachers.

There is less emphasis on testing until the intermediate years.

On the other hand, The American Education System does a dis-service both to children and educators.

New teachers are sent to low performing schools. It takes at least seven to tens years to become a seasoned veteran.

While the teacher learns the students receives second to best and his needs are pushed aside.

Let’s reimagine for a moment the task before women.
We women carry the Culture in our hearts and it is Heart to heart that children learn.

We are the Culture carriers passing on the intelligence needed to reconstruct society.

The Empowered Woman’s Course is a P.A.N.A.C.E.A., a universal cure for the plight of women.

It provides a paradigm through which women can truly see.
It allows the natural feminine essence of women to shine.

We have allowed men to guide human life. Unfortunately they are ill-equipped for this work.

I propose that we women look through the lens that acknowledges the feminine aspect of life.

This is a Feminine model of leadership which will be discussed in the next post.
