Women in time

I found a husband, the family celebrate, the extended family, the concerns, normal, the year 30 AD, life is simple, the sharing of duties, each person knowing their skill, their ability. The time, simple, the attractions simple, life expanding, the dreams, mostly eternal, the wish, the loving protection of God Most High, healthy family, and a peace filled community, sounds simple. The mega stores didn’t exist, credit rare, the sweat you spill, the food you eat, unless your a writer or artist perhaps.

2020, the energy is not the same, there is pressure, expectations, the sexless person does not appear to exist anymore, while the media runs stories, what is your sex anyway, children confused, do we believe the news, didn’t they say it was fake anyway. Issues with men, few women escape them, the dress code, being male minded, tough, you do want to get along don’t you. the habits you have to adopt, life you suppose.

The energy is strong, she feels it around her, great at the start, but who wants the attention, its’ too regular, and to complain, that’s like taking offence to it. Women in time, the first casualties of war, in every war, apart from truth, the issues with men, and this energy, this male energy, almost demanding, the woman, she doesn’t feel comfortable around it, wants to work and be left alone, her privacy respected.

Women in time, the needs of mother nature, what happens when she weakens, are those signs not written about, a reminder, that all is not well in nature. May the men, focus on the needs of mother nature, the needs of those who are in need of help, not the needs of men, that appear to be perpetual, social media, how it ramps up the trouble, perhaps a warning to all, amen.

The Beguines

Not much is written about these Holy Women, who pondered the Holy Words, apart from the large number of them, who were deemed heretical, for their simple interpretation of God and the living Spirit. Not captivated by ritual, they were simple in how they devoted themselves to their holy devotion, too simple for the leaders of Christianity in the 13th and 14th century. Margaret Porette comes to mind. While they retreated from life publicly an account of the witch hunt against them, there must be many women of the Spirit, who have had to cloth their faith in all guises. Was their treatment, though harsh it was, just a reminder; how the Spirit from above has had to fight to stay alive in a world that lost it’s way, possibly, amen.

How they are so needed today, these spirited women, in all the different faith groups and beyond. Well, Jesus gave men and women equal standing, and who can disagree with that, amen.
