The mystery of the woman is hidden in the depths of the heart. Her innocence is protected in the embrace that surrounds her like the petals of the rose surround the bud. The secrets of her nature are revealed when the light of the spirit of love beholds the fullness of her being, and the full flowering of her beauty opens only in the presence of those friends of the heart, who truly seek to honor her freedom. The 21st century istheerawhen humankind will makea quantum leap inthe direction ofmaking the earth a morepeaceful and united world. To make this shift, we need to face certain challenges. Many of the solutions are harbored within the energy of the feminine nature, not just in the home or work place, but also everywhere across the planet. The compassionate nature of women is one of the most precious resourcesavailable to us. There is an energy, a special light, and a capacity for love that arises out of a deep desire within womenwho give of themselves and cancare for others. The same qualities are found in men, as each gender also possesses the qualities of the opposite gender, but cultural overlays tend to suppress these. I believe this qualitywould revolutionize our world if we could truly encourage and support womensinvolvement.
