Respect Women, Respect Life
“If the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being of the woman is intact, so too is that of the family, community and society.” – Ancient Indigenous Proverb
This ancient proverb gives me hope because it tells us that the overall well-being of females directly influences all of existence.
Clearly there is much work to be done to have all females, young and old, be in good health in their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects.
That is why women all over the world march today. They know that respect, care and kind regard are the minimum qualities that must be restored to them.
When the welfare of the women is honored, men and all beings in our world will also be well. In fact, these four essences being intact for females ensures that the entirety of life is glowing.
I know that the road has been long and filled with peril, but today there is confidence because the women raise up their knowledge of what is needed to restore wholeness and harmony.
A proverb is by definition: “a simple and concrete saying, popularly known and repeated, that expresses a truth based on common sense or experience.” This tells me that the ancient Indigenous proverb written above is known as true, which means that at one time the women’s physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being were intact. If it was once, it can be again.
To everyone today who is: marching, holding space, doing ceremony and embracing intentions of respect for the women, know that your efforts bring a restoration of harmony for all.
