She is the Creator
This particular poem is dear to my heart. My greatest strides forward in personal developement have been guided by women. My beautiful Michele is my teacher. My mom is my mentor. Sarah is my coach. And many other fabulous women who are wonderful goddesses. There are a few men that have an understanding of the feminine wisdom too. It is the feminine wisdom that this poem celebrates.
True wisdom comes from the sacred feminine. There is a quote on the internet attributed to the Dalai Lama that says “The planet does not need more successful people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds.” Precisely. Those qualities are the sacred feminine. I would add to that quote, the world needs more guidance from the wise feminine spirit.
I posted this version of She is the Creator because it is far superior to the versions on the internet. This version speaks with a gentleness both to men and women that the other versions don’t. Gentleness and wisdom is very much what this poem is about.
“Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?”
She is the Creator
There’s a tradition that Muhammad said, “A wise man
will listen and be led by
a woman, while an ignorant man will not.” Someone too
fiercely drawn by animal
urges lacks kindness and the gentle affections
that keep men human.
Anger and sharp desiring are animal in qualities. A
loving tenderness toward
women shows someone no longer pulled along by wanting.
The core of the feminine
comes directly as a ray of the sun. Not the earthly
figure you hear about in
love songs, there’s more to her mystery than that. You
might say she’s not from
the manifest world at all, but the creator of it.
