I went to bed last night at 9pm. I couldnt bear to consume any more of the election, of people's commentary, it was like ingesting a poison that was slowly extinguishing the light of my soul. I woke up this morning hoping it was a bad dream- hoping that I didnt exist in a world where people have forgotten that there is no "us" and "them", but just us. Hoping that there is some semblance of memory, that we are here for one reason only, and that is to serve the world and our Higher power. I also woke up empowered and invigorated to be a part of the change. To be an alarm clock that wakes up the masses. I have a small role in design, but I will use that platform to create as much awareness as possible. With the state of affairs as they are, we are past logic and reason, we need to change the hearts of men. This requires love and understanding, and love and more love. As quoted from the Bahai Writings "The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens".
Ladies, this is our time. Equality will never be given to us, it must be taken. Speak up, dont let anyone allow you to sacrifice your voice or compromise your position. Changing the laws will only help us so much, we need to change the culture. Its up to us. If you need support or a place to gather, we have a shop that is always open. Contact us, come see us, because WE SEE YOU. We love you, and if women alone band together, we can turn this whole world around, but we have to be willing to be authentic. We cant keep trying to express our womanly wants and feelings in a language that was created for men. We have to get super creative, create our own language, live in the abstract with confidence and figure out what this new era looks like for US, for our children and for our families. We're not trying to create a matriarchy, we're not striving for sameness, its simply equality and our God given right. Time to be what you came here for. As my friend Julie told me....its Time to serve in deep, new, uncompromising ways. The world depends on our understanding this.
With Great Love
