VCAFEThe Psychological Mind
Tries to control life
And how everything should be.

Riding on the wind
Without an anchor
Tossed about
Living life recklessly.

Caught up in the
Personal story
You tell your self
Deriving life from
Your attention
Interest
And belief.

Who is this Mind’s servant
Doing and believing
Everything it tells you,
Who is the mind talking to?

The Psychological Mind can intimidate and be a tyrant to the person
But has no influence on
The True Self.

You must transcend
The personal aspect of mind
If you want to be happy and free

Give little importance to
The Psychological Mind
Just be.

You may ask,
Who will I be?

Womanism

My awareness of womanism is entrenched with my want to create a new language from my experience as a woman through Poetry and as a Word-Press Vlog/Blogger. Through these mediums, I authenticate my life and reconstruct the story of women in society.

Womanism is an idea about how I create a new language from my experience in a society that does not value my life. It is a way to value and validate my own experiences through writing and telling stories.

In addition, my stories reflect my aspiration and ideas not only about my life but my community and ultimately the world.

As a woman, I want my voice to be heard in the society in which I live, in the way children are educated and the way women are respected in that society.

Writing and Vlogging is a way to express the ideas of the time. It is a medium that is timeless and has the potential to inspire not only the immediate generation but many generations to come.

With the advent of the internet, Vlog has become possible to reach across the world to a massive audience. There are immediate effects and a lasting effect that it has on women.

The long-term goal is for women to begin to see themselves as powerful, and appreciate feminine values such as cooperation and harmony and bring these values to relationships and the marketplace and ultimately the world.

This creates Woman’s Culture which is important in creating and sustaining the consciousness that leads to lessening the gender gap.

In this light, Womanist Culture is linked to political outcomes and political activism.

Virtual Cafe
Tucked safely away behind the walls that shield my body from the cold,
Cuddled up in my favorite chair.
I gaze outside my window.
To see a player on the stage.
Playing a role.
Lost in the script.
Like a bad actor who has forgotten his lines.
So he improvises.
Pulling from the forgotten past.
That he can’t seem to remedy himself from.
A glorious past he remembers.
Not too glamorous for some.
The days of old sting like a whip.
Leaving red lashes across my back.
Arms aching from being stretched beyond capacity.
A glorious reign of power he dreams.
Of might and violence.
Far removed from reality.
This white horse gallops across the stage
Trampling its hooves onto the backs of men and women,
Children alike who have forgotten how to stand erect.
Too long heads bowed,
Shoulders bent from carrying the weight of this white horse.
I beckon you to retreat.
Into the safety of a world.
That which I have written into existence.
That looms over the frigid air of the day.

Feminine Power

Feminine Power

Motherhood:
We give birth.

Around nine months life comes through us as we willingly become a surrogate mother,
We mothers nourish our child with our breast milk and attend to her every waking need.

Educators
Shape the hearts and minds of children.
It was in my first two years of schooling that I acquired the decoding skills that became the building block to a life-time of learning.

Educators shape the future through educing the very essence of children,
providing the environment for the unfolding of a child’s heart in the safe confines of the classroom.
Soon seeds planted mature into mighty oak trees.

Where else does the feminine spirit exude itself?
In the family
as the moral structure
Providing glimpses of fairness and love,
setting the gauge for compassionate interactions in the family.

The Feminine Spirit is a power
Yet, untapped onto itself

It is like the Sun
Illuminating the darkness,

Giving life-giving
Nourishment to the
Inner Life of the child,

Guiding The Future

Re-Imagine Feminine Leadership PART 2

PART 11:  Cultivating Revolutionary Relationships

In the New Feminine Leadership Culture

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

It’s 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 part 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.  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.

Once attuned to the natural world we women become self-organizing, harmonious and whole. There’ll be no need to look outside oneself for redemption. We’ll 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.

We are the carriers of culture and must awaken to our noble mission to be caretakers of humanity. We are the ones who with transform the world. Once we embrace this noble calling there’ll be a groundswell of peace for the modern world.

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 the 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. 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.
