I read an article from the Dalai Lama that I want to share with you. “Dalai Lama:Women with power can bring a compassionate revolution”. In it, he talks about the need for women to step forward into positions of authority and power, but to do so with compassion and love. He says,
“(Women)…you must not assume that in order to reach high office, and stay there, you need to adopt the most unacceptable masculine behavior — the use of force.
Genuine strength is rooted in love and compassion.
Young women of the millennium: I am calling on you to take your place at the head of a Compassionate Revolution.” Dalai Lama
He also admonishes men as having “been responsible for carnage and destruction. They have been celebrated as heroes when they should have been criticized as wrongdoers.”
Compassion is a Divine Feminine trait that has often been ridiculed as “weak”. Men and women have denigrated feminine qualities, especially when it comes to leadership. Yet, here is a man, one admired by men and women alike for his strength AND his compassion as well as his powerful messages about love, kindness, light and leadership, calling on women to lead a compassionate revolution!
He is saying that it is time for women to step forward! It is time for us to show the world that strength comes in a different package then the one we’ve been sold for the last two millennia. Feminine energy IS strong, it IS powerful and at the same time it IS loving and kind.
It is also time for men to look deep inside to find and connect with their feminine side. Having and showing compassion is NOT a weakness; it is humanity at its finest. I believe that not only women, but also men, who have accepted this part of themselves, their emotional, intuitive self, must participate in this Compassionate Revolution.
In recent blogs, I have talked about balancing the masculine and feminine energies within each of us, about recognizing and utilizing the positive traits as well as acknowledging and managing the negative traits of each. Now, more than ever, it is time to appreciate the loving, nurturing wisdom that can come from consciously stepping into the Divine Feminine Energy that is within us all.
Our world is at a crossroads. Scientists around the world are pointing to global warming saying that we are quickly reaching a point from which we cannot return; a point of irreversible damage. Violence is at an all time high around the world. Greed is so prevalent that corporations and governments are putting money and power above the good of the people whom they are serving.
Ladies, it is time to unite! I, personally, am stepping up!
Join me in this compassionate revolution! Are you in?
