In discussing the musical theme of the character Rey in the seventh Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, composer John William had the following to share, which to me seems to be the kind of journey all of us would be more likely to relate to, on the human level: "Rey, her theme has a musical grammar that is not heroic. It's kind of an adventure theme that maybe promises more than resolving itself in the most major, triumphant resolutions. “
Here's to journeying through life with the precious everyday moments being triumphant and full of life, and love, in their own way, by just being and being experienced..
I am a woman, more than I am a man, in how I feel in gender. I feel called to help women on their journeys in life, being male-bodied, relating more to women. I feel the exquisite beauty and divinity of each woman's truth as I come to talk to and know each one.
I have always been on a spiritual journey, knowingly, more than most, and I have found that we all will break through gender definitions, that they don't matter, and the form coming closest to this on departure from gender is the female form of spirit.
In a loving way, this human way, this is the path.
I do not think the self-sacrificing male energies are the loving way to travel a spiritual path.
The sacred feminine means then, all the ways I have been touched by the spirit of my womanhood throughout my life, and perhaps even girlhood in my more playful moments.
I have gotten the greatest wisdom and inspiration and advice from fellow women, and that spirit of woman within me.
It may seem strange to me at times, and disconcerting, this disconnect from how my body is and what others might expect, but I cannot deny that I have a true female spirit, that I do not need to do anything, but just be me, and she comes out.
Thank God/dess! She comes out.
Mark Newlon, feeling the embrace of the sacred feminine daily!
