Women of wisdom, as we age, with grace, as we age, with love, as we age, through experience, through learning to mend our own hearts, through observing others mend their own hearts, as we learn to choose peace over power, forgiveness over pride, detachment of any hurt, lightness over heaviness, inner peace over needing to be to be right, voiced but not needed to be heard, as we observe ourselves and those around us, as we feel love for ourselves and those around us, we turn day by day into these wise women, gifts of the Earth, of future generations, of evolution, of this New Earth, full of stories, full of compassion, full of humour, playfulness, joy, and strength! We have learnt to stand tall and strong through storms of all weathers, knowing that this too shall pass, and the only real thing that matters is how much joy we have felt, how deeply and unconditionally we have learnt to be love/loved/lover, how much compassion we have learnt, how much peace we embody/be, how many lives we can touch, through our sheer knowing, and our human smile, smile of the eyes, as well as the lips. Wise women, I thank you, I honour you, and I am inspired to be you, in Divine Time, moving through this life of love, one step at a time, with gentleness and strength.
I feel there is a wave of older women birthing children, there is a wave of women who have chosen the path of a yogi, which means the path of Truth, yogi is not necessarily related to yoga, although it is quite safe to say that a lot of yogis will use yoga as a tool, yoga unites mind, body and Spirit, and when we follow the path of Truth, it is necessary to unite these, in saying that there are many tools to choose from, we are not limited only to yoga.
These women, are having children in the later years of their life, as I am told there is no right time to have children, I do believe there is this wave of women, the ones who are doing self work before they choose to be present with and of service to children in this world. Personally I felt the desire to mother children over the past two years, without feeling ready, and my recent Vipassana sitting helped me get clear on this desire within myself, I have a desire to be around toddlers and babies, but not to be a birth mother just yet, I feel there are other priorities in my life, specifically cultivating more of my Soul Work, learning more about love, money, and also potentially traveling more, I want to spend time working on an empowered partnership without co-dependence involved - this scares me in moments and inspires me in others, can I be so at peace with myself in order to not ever feel the illusion of not being wanted, and not ever feeling even the slightest amount of jealousy, can I embody and be unconditional love, never manipulate another being, or fool myself, can I really be so strong on my own path, and humble with another following his own path, yet still be able to cultivate a loving partnership? This is what my heart and Soul are have called forth, in Divine Time, as I birth more and more of my Soul Work (which is taking my main focus in this moment of my journey), these need my focus and presence, so a birth child is not currently my priority, however as always, with Divine intervention I have been offered a casual job which involves helping to look after a three year old toddler and a newborn baby girl, a yogi family with similar lifestyle values of heal-thy food, and minimising waste, living more in tune with Natural elements and Nature.
At the local farmer’s market a couple of weeks ago, I shared some moments with two older women, after losing my girlfriends and sitting down on my own to eat some yummy dumplings, these two women were bursting with joy and excitement, it was so inline with what I was feeling, that excitement of being amongst, yet covered from, heavy heavy rain, and eating delicious food, while feeling a buzz of life around. These women inspired me, they were on a spontaneous road trip from Sydney, one lives around the corner from where I lived a couple of years ago, down by the ocean in Bronte, and the other spent eleven years in central Australia, the same place that changed my world for the better, Uluru, the exact place that made me feel ‘home’ in every sense, while spending most days in the same clothes, and sleeping in an extremely simple pop up tent, connecting my elements with the Earth elements.
These women deepened my gratitude and inspiration of women of age, they can be SO full of life, so many stories to share, so many lessons learnt, so many different views, so playful, unreserved, cheeky even and fearless, fearless to say hello to someone they have only just met, to share something about their day or their journey, they make anyone who catches the fire in their eyes to feel whole, to feel everything is okay, that fire is like a sparkle, but stronger, it is the light that comes from having experienced and survived, or even thrived through life experiences that come to us all, the joyful ones, and the heartache ones. I tell you now, if you feel vulnerable to sit alone out in a social setting, everyone has felt that, it is those that are aware that they have felt it, that will welcome you into their space, that will smile at you without needing a smile in return. WE ALL FEEL the same, we all BLEED THE SAME, compassion is a powerful tool, we are here to learn it. My main desire as I age through this life is to ALWAYS release any pain, to always forgive, I do not want to carry any heaviness or bitterness, I inspire to be that wise woman who is so full of love, so full of life, who’s eyes sparkle with fire because she woke up that morning, and trusts that while everything is always changing, everything is always okay.
Wise women, I bow to you, I thank the ones doing the work, aligning with love, with growth, with fearlessness to express themselves unhindered, and not staying stagnant in any kind of pain, you are our gifts, you are the ones who have learnt to break your hearts open, as wide as they can go, you are our mothers, and our daughters, of this Earth and beyond.
