International women’s day is a great way to celebrate the female aspect of humans and of all of life and creation. There is not one without the other. It is also a great day to highlight the many struggles and unfair things women have to deal with on an everyday basis. For me, personally, all this matters because as a person in female form, it hurts to be excluded, and it creates fundamental imbalance between the sexes and even more duality. Imagine eating lunch alone everyday, or not being invited to a get-together on purpose, being on the outside looking in. To be excluded. That’s what it feels like many times, being a woman. In the workplace, in conversations, in politics, in important decisons making, and for many women; in their own home. Even our own bodies. It sucks to be excluded. Please include us, it will create more balance, and balance will inevitably benefit all.
Den blonde veversken Tid
sitter i skyggerisset under trærne
med renningen av solstråler
spillende mellom fingrene.
– Jeg vever lys av mørke,
sier veversken Tid,
– og fletter sang av sorg.
Med forvandlingens under i fingertuppene
slår hun livet ditt nennsomt
inn i veven av glemsel.
Og det gjør ikke vondt mer. Din angst
blir lyset i en skjær bjørkelegg
i mainatta, din lengsel
en blomst som vender krona si blygt
for nattens dugg.
– Hans Børli
The way of Dharma is to become less and less until we are like the wind in the trees or the ripples on the water. In reality only a beautiful movement of love, compassion and joy seeking nothing for itself but serving the world with kindness. Letting go (awakening) of the ever demanding ego (self identity) is the greatest gift we can bring to our own life and the life of all beings. The less of ‘you’ there is, the happier you will be. This is how to be no-one, going no-where. May all beings be happy.
