Divine Woman

Woman,

Soul and spirit,

Conscious and subconscious


Changing daughter

From you comes the fall

From you begins the return


You were Eve when you were tempted

And your expression became bloody sweat

And the adventure turned into toil


You became Isis,

Mother fertile of unsuccessful hopes,

A land which thought that could bud without seed


And then you changed again, to be the Aphrodite

Trying to seduce and fool the Time

But you ended up a whore in Babylon's destruction


But hope is never lost in Love,

The Truth cannot be imprisoned,

And finally, Life brings, through you Woman Mariah, the Golden Child

The Golden Child whom His divine Word

Transforms our Soul to be able to say:

I Am the One


Sean Dragon, January 1996

Our life begins with a woman, our mother who, with her pain, a sacrifice, brings us to the world and ends in the arms of another mother, Mother Earth, who embraces us to prepare us for the new cycle. It starts and ends with a Female Love!

— Sean Dragon

In Greek, the gender of the words Love, Life, Wisdom, Patience, Virtue, Service, Justice, Knowledge, is female. No one can question the Sacred Knowledge and wisdom of the ancient Greeks!

— Sean Dragon

The Cycle of Balance

Every one of us has a female and a male side, all of us. Every Sacred Knowledge through time had stated it. The type of life we will live, and the progress we will make in our world depends on the balance that we will be able to achieve during our lives between these two natures. By denying one of our two sides and letting it atrophying is like denying a piece of God inside us.

Since I did not have the honor to be born a woman, I realized, early enough in my life, that I had to respect, appreciate, and develop within me, my feminine side. This effort, I believe, helped me to learn how to love more and to become a better person.

Because when we come to talk about Love, which I believe is the meaning of our lives, I think that women have the highest knowledge since the love of a mother, I consider, is what is closer to God's Love.

Source

So this poem is a tribute to the Sacred Feminine, praise to every woman in this world, but also to the female side of each of us, the side we have to worship and liberate to learn to love, to learn to live.

The deepest experience of the creator is feminine, for it is experience of receiving and bearing.

— Rainer Maria Rilke

Each one of us needs to discover the proper balance between the masculine and feminine energies, between the active and the receptive.

— Ravi Ravindra

Every man who is any kind of artist has a great deal of female in him. I act and give of myself as a man, but I register and receive with the soul of a woman. The only really good artists are feminine. I can't admit the existence of an artist whose dominant personality is masculine.

— Orson Welles

You can hardly say of your soul what sex it is. But if you pay close attention, you will see that the most masculine man has a feminine soul, and the most feminine woman a masculine soul.

— C.G. Jung

      I'm with Jung on this one. We must honor the masculine and the feminine within ourselves to be whole, and to be ourselves.

      Thank you for writing this tribute to the Feminine. I enjoyed it very much.

      Hmmm! You've got the point. Do I have to choose?

      Well, you are my friend as anyone I want to help.

      You are my sister because I know that every being is my brother or my sister, and not only the beings, even a stone is a part of God, so it is my brother or sister (if you didn't notice there are feminine and masculine stones! LOL).

      Having four sons while I always wanted a daughter too, I send you my prayers as you were my daughter, now that you need extra positive energy for your new job!

      After all, I am the madman of the village, as my spiritual teacher used to call me, so don't be surprised with me!

      I send you my Love all three ways!

      The female aspects or personality of God is experiencing all that knowledge has to offer through love while the male attributes are of the firm intellect all knowing without experience. Together their love is creation. I think you spoke about it beautifully here. Great job!

      My brother Venkatachari, I am glad to be the cause of learning about Greek mythology and Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of Eros. I am glad too, because you, Eric and I, share the similar experience in life.

      Thank you so much for your comment. You always have a good and kind word to write, and that is a great encouragement for me and a sign of your noble heart.

      Hari Om!

      Your article is intriguing. I never looked at being a woman quite the way you describe it here. Until now, I never saw the balance between the masculine and feminine side of human beings. You have done a wonderful job of explaining it.

      Very pleasing and wonderful tribute to all women, and the characteristics that define a woman.

      You are right, that there is a man in every woman, and a woman in every man. These characteristics can and should become pronounced. in every individual, as and when required.

      Beautiful poem, with deep thoughts. Thanks for sharing!

      Something very interesting here that I never came across. Your poem mentioning the Greek Goddesses. I had to read from Wikipedia to learn about them.

      The tribute to women is very welcome. The quotes are wonderful. Not yet viewed the videos. Will return again to view them.

      Your point is correct that every soul is a blend of masculine and feminine qualities. Only one needs to recognize this fact and try to be well balanced. I agree with Eric's point and share the similar experience in my life also.

      Yes, my dear Brother, Manatita, God in His Absolute is both and neither! That's why I believe we have to love both our parts, feminine and masculine, and bring the balance of the One.

      First, we have to admit that we have those two parts. It is an essential problem of humanity, I believe.

      Thank you so much for being here again, in my comments, and for your thoughtful feedback.

      You are in my prayers, every day!

      Thank you, my dear Sister Nikki, for being the first to comment, a woman that I admire. It's a beautiful symbolism, I believe.

      In some mystic doctrines, there is the belief that to be born woman means that you are in a higher spiritual level and you never have to born as a man again unless you wanted. Living 35 years beside a great woman, the love of my life and the mother of our four sons, I am sure of that. I could never manage all those things she has done and does while is filling our lives with love every day!

      I am sure for example that no man can bear the pain of a birth! Mother Nature knows better!

      So I Love you all women, all you are beautiful in your own way!

      Much Gratitude, my Sister!

      God bless you for blessing your family.

      Wonderfully done. The tribute part is compelling and well written, thank you.

      I just adore my feminine side, more properly called my feminine part. I know a lot of men who deny it. So sad, so insecure.

      I am lucky that my wife has a healthy dose of masculine. It works out just fine.

      A very thought-provoking piece. You considering being a woman Bro? Lol.

      Spiritual Masters tend to collaborate with a Shakti, the feminine aspect of the Divine. Ramakrishna was married but worshipped His Mother Kali.

      The Christ had his mother as well as Mary Magdalene but His way was in relating to God as Father.

      God in His Absolute is both and neither. He is Existence, Consciousness and Bliss. (SAT, CHIT, ANANDA. Hari Om!

      Well done Sean brother for this precious gift to all women on earth.Indeed a woman is the most beautiful creation of God who is born to become a symbol of love, sacrifice and patience.No other creature has power to do that as a woman can endure.

      Thanks for such an awesome tribute to all women.

      Bless you and your family always.
