Lovely Woman

Beloved woman, you are lovely. Your loveliness flows from your deep consciousness of yourself as a loveable person and from your responsiveness to your caring nature.

You are deeply aware and confident of your worth as a child of God and revel in the experience of being loved always; and from this flow your loveliness. You exude about you an aura of warmth and happiness, a sheer delight of joy in the experience of living – something which all persons seek for and relish once they felt a sense of them radiating from someone.

You can further nurture your loveliness by simply affirming to yourself these realities already experienced by you and sensed in you by others. Your personal affirmation expressed in positive words and charged with uplifting emotion radiate invisible energy that caresses the sensibility of people. Close your eyes and relish the realities of these words:

“I am a lovely person, a loveable person.”
“I delight in the love being poured upon me now.”
“I live in a world filled with love.”
“I experience love flowing to me now and closing upon me.”
“Every little things of delight in my world is love touching my
heart . . . the wind that caresses my face, the softness of the
pillow, the sweetness of the fruit I am savoring, the soothing
music that I am listening to, the tender touch of the child
beside me . . . . all are love touching and embracing me . . .”
“My heart has only room for love, and I am happy.”
“My heart radiates only love and care for others.”

Loveliness increases the more you radiate love. Practice at all times this little secret from one of the most inspiring book in the modern world
The Greatest Secret in the World by Og Mandino: in silence and to yourself address all whom you meet and say ‘I love you’ and the miracle of loveliness will flow back continuously in you.

You are lovely because you are a caring person; and your caring nature is evident, primarily in your special attention to your whole being – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. You only welcome in your person those that further your well-being: healthy food and activity that nourish your beauty and strength, feelings that uplift you and give energy for action, thoughts that create a world of light and opportunity and challenges that expand your heart towards God with devotion and towards others with love, care and service.

Woman of Power

Beloved woman, you are a woman of power. Your power, however, lies in your propensity to generate and nurture life. In your very person is encoded millennium of experience caring for life through the physical and spiritual energy of your being. The more aware you are of this power in your person, the more energy you are able to generate in you (and through you to others as well) to create, nurture, enrich and protect life.

Man has been in the rampage of war and destruction from time immemorial through all stages of his march in history; and in his blind madness he trampled upon woman and child. But you, beloved woman, you are the mother of peace; and in you, my heart leans on with great hope because your tender and gentle nature has a reservoir of life giving energy and power. This you can direct through invisible veins that connect you with your kind by bonds of sympathetic nature and with particular persons by bonds of love and affection.

You have within you half-discovered ways to generate transforming influence for good that is in keeping with the purity of your heart: the natural power of directed intent and the spiritual power of faith-filled prayer. They could be one and the same power just expressed differently according to the ground from which you stand and face the challenge of life. The first from the ground of intuitive knowing of the creative energy of one’s being, the second from the ground of faith in God.

The power of directed intent

You may connect to the creative energy of your being by harnessing the power of your thoughts and emotions and directing them towards people through your empowering intentions. Thoughts, images, emotions are energies that can flow towards your intended direction. This reality can be gleaned from the experience of sensing someone looking with focused attention towards you from behind and discovering someone really gazing at you when you look back. The energy of your being can flow to others – to people you love, even to people you don’t know personally. The image you form in your mind - especially positively and emotionally charged ones - and projected to them can be caught consciously, though oftentimes unconsciously, and influence them for good. By entering into a state of relaxed quiet, calm and peace you can create powerful thoughts and images which you can direct and project towards others, no matter where they are, and help them be lifted up to a more positive, vibrant state of being. The possibility for generating fuller life experience and transformation for other people is simply great. And this can be a simple way of making acts of love for others when you are otherwise hindered by physical distance, obstacle or some other hindrances.

The power of faith-filled prayer

For woman of faith, the reality of the power of prayer should be second nature to you. It connects you to the very wellspring of creative energy which has the power to influence and open the hearts of people and likewise change circumstances for good.

Beloved woman, you are strong in heart and mind, you have the power of loving greatly. I rejoice in knowing that you fill your world with love.

The Mystery of Woman

Woman is one beautiful mystery that shaped my life. I was about five years old when I first experienced a keen awareness of the feminine. My paternal grandfather called my attention to a beautiful girl one year older who was selling doughnuts to us. For days that girl captured my imagination. And since then I became conscious of the reality of the feminine as a distinct, unique person and who has captured my soul all my life. Every girl or woman I came close with during my younger years become like a goddess to me.

My mother was the woman that loomed large in my life not so much by her constant presence but by the tenderness and sense of pride by which she carried me in her heart and introduced me to others.

And as I came to know the Blessed Mother she became the woman par excellence, the model, the dream and the prayer wish I have for every woman to emulate; notwithstanding the contrary current that continue to be potent in my being as a man. Perhaps all of these explain my biased favor for women, why I have not related to a single woman all my life for mere sport and why I am an advocate – though hitherto a quiet one – for woman; a feminist, though in a different sense. And perhaps it is also the reason why my best friends, my closest friends and my life long friends are women.

The prayers of a mystery woman, I believed, prepared me for my definitive initiation to the deeper experience of divine mystery. She is a mystery woman since I have never known her personally and never known her name. And yet from her I owe God’s great gift of his Spirit. Sometime in my last year in high school, two itinerant women preachers in orange uniform visited our class. They stood in front of the class and shared to us about Jesus and the need to receive him in our lives and the need to receive the gift of his Spirit. They prayed for us in strange tongues, and as they were praying one of them had her eyes transfixed on me and I knew she was praying for me. And as it were, I felt like mesmerized, in an awake trance and felt a sense of mystery enveloping me. Even when they left I went to the verandah of our classroom and followed her with my eyes till she was gone.
The woman’s prayers for me were answered four years later. I was in my third year in college then. While praying with lifted arms and hands - all alone in my room at the university men’s dormitory - I suddenly felt a strong power like an electric current started to course through my hands and arms and engulfed my whole body and was filled with a strong sense of God’s love enveloping my whole being, assuring me of a place in heaven and filling me with peace and joy that transformed my awkward praises into one that flowed from within my heart like a torrent that had been released; and the more I praise him the more I experience his presence, the more I experience his love, peace and joy.

Since then I grow towards deepening love for God and, strange but not strange, my deepening appreciation and love for woman paralleled my deepening love for and devotion to God. And though the form and manner by which I live it went through change and manifold transformation, never did it wane.

Woman of Delight

Beloved woman, I delight in you. Your mere presence brings freshness to my soul. You are to me all that you are – mother, sister, friend, wife, daughter, heroine, queen, princess, helper, everything you are in your goodness all over the face of the earth. And always, a tiny glimpse of your myriad brightness in the darkness of sky is light of joy that shine in my heart.

I see you in the kaleidoscope of light that dance in the screen of my mind and transport your countless image from all over the web of light and life, binding your heart to mine. And I am alive with the knowing that “it is not good that man should be alone . . . and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man” (Genesis 2:16, 22 KJV).

Woman, you are indeed man’s delight, worthy of wholehearted devotion short of adoration as goddess friend and partner. You are precious, a treasure, a divine gift of love . . . and my heart is filled with gratitude.

Woman from the Ancients

Beloved Woman from the Ages, you are extolled as one whom “the heart of her husband trusts in her” (Proverbs 31:11, RSV) and happy indeed am I, for I have you, the one whom my heart has complete confidence, a confidence that gives me joy and peace.

More than anything else, this is what man seeks in woman for a lifetime. "A good wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels." (Proverbs 31:10, RSV)

Beloved woman of today, many seek and aspire to be prized and loved, and in the seeking and aspiring is brokenness and weariness of heart. Still your heart, only be – woman of grace that you are. That is the one most needed. The gold panners have keen eyes only for true gold. Miners of lesser heart, settle for less.

Woman of Music

Beloved Woman, you are the music of my heart. Music is your more eloquent language and in this you have risen to near perfection.

You have played to me in innumerable down-to-earth words and rhythms and in ethereal language of the soul. There is no better way to entrain the heart of the world from the tumult of war – inside and out – to stillness and peace as the power of your music.

Beloved Woman of Music, continue to caress the heart of man, till like a young boy he snuggles to your bosom and lay down his arms to free the Dove of Peace from its cage.

Greatness of Woman in Ordinariness

Beloved Woman, I have seen you in the many faces of great achievements in history and in today’s world. In each, you exhibit unique greatness that many will be shy to follow or feel inadequate to measure up to.

You may feel trapped in the routine of ordinariness or in the world of high level agenda. But where you are, there is a secret spring from which can flow into your life true greatness and joy. A young girl from Lisieux, France discovered this secret spring in the late 19th century. Her name is Therese. You can read more about Therese of Liseux here.

Her secret, reduced into a ‘formula’, is to do a very ordinary act – like picking up a rose – for Love, and with great love. But much is hidden in formula. So listen to her own words in Story of a Soul, a book that has inspired and continue to inspire millions. She was a yourng Catholic nun; but, regardless of belief, the heart of her story is for all women, and men as well.

Radiant Woman

Beloved woman, your radiant face is everywhere clear in my mind’s eye, overshadowing the gloom I see in your many faces from across far places and time. Would I to see radiant faces all over the world.

Woman’s radiant smile has strange power. It sends inner ripple of delight across the underlying matrix that connects the hearts of people, like an underground river flowing even beneath arid lands.

It takes the power of deep faith in the naked goodness there is in life to maintain radiance and joy even as one is beset by the challenge of daily living. And I see in your radiance a heart that drink deeply from the wellspring of life, a heart that bask in the radiance of God’s ever shining love.

Woman of Immense Power and Beauty

“I'm a being of immense power and breathtaking beauty created in the image of God.”

Beloved woman, I see you as young and seemingly frail, but your tenderness indeed masked maturity and strength, energy and passion that radiate what you affirmed in faith and intuitive knowing. You are indeed a being of immense beauty and power.

Both beauty and power emerge from a realm deep within the heart and soul of woman. There is beauty and power in the heart and inner being first before they manifest outwardly. You are woman of beauty and strength because you have nurtured within your heart all the elements of beauty – grace, serenity, joy, inner poise, confidence, loving kindness and loveliness; and you have tamed energy and passion with courage, intentionality, resolution, determination and resiliency in the pursuit of goodness through active endeavor even amidst challenge and adversity.

With the whole wide world before you I sing to you:

“Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream, follow every rainbow
Till your dream, comes true . . .”

Dream Woman

Beloved woman, I love you with an extraordinary love and devotion because I have come to know the woman par excellence – the woman nestled in the very depths of your being. She is the woman every woman truly longs to be. She is the eternal feminine - Mary, Mother of God.

“She is what every woman wants to be, when she looks at
Herself. She is the woman whom every man marries in ideal
when he takes a spouse; she is hidden as an ideal in the
discontent of every woman with the carnal aggressiveness of
of man; she is the secret desire every woman to be honored
and fostered; she is the way every woman wants to command
respect and love because of the beauty of her goodness of
body and soul. And this blueprint love whom God loved before
the world was made; this Dream Woman before women were, is
the one of whom every heart can say in its depths of depths:
“She is the Woman I love!””
Fulton J. Sheen, The World’s First Love

No matter what your beliefs are, knowing the story of Mary will not fail to inspire you with what is best a woman could ever be. You will discover a freshness that will challenge you towards a profound sense of oneness with her in experiencing the essence of woman and becoming a powerful force for good and transformation of the world.

The World’s First Love, written by a brilliant man of God in a simple and lucid manner is a moving and eloquent portrayal of Mary. It is a beautiful tapestry of light from history, philosophy and theology about the most adorable woman that ever lived.

Drink always from this well of sweet wisdom and strength.The World's First LoveThe World's First Love

Woman You Are Queen

Beloved woman, I love you as queen. I can only think of you as queen. I can only treasure you in my heart as queen. A queen has the highest dignity and honor; a rare and precious treasure like – but infinitely much more – the largest of diamond. And that is how you are to me.

My desire for you is that you remain queen for always. It may be second nature for you to live as queen; then you are rightful queen by heritage. In my heart I bow before you – you know who you are – in highest esteem, homage and respect. You may experience being queen as a matter of dream, perhaps aspiration. Or, you may experience it as an awakening to who you really are.

You are by nature queen. Whoever you are, wherever you are coming from, you have a domain where you can reign – a man’s heart or that of an adoring child, a circle of devoted friends, your dedicated workforce or a people you serve.

Beloved woman, know you are queen. Reign as queen; this is a most important dimension of your being in the world, for to reign is to love.

Love Comes To You

03 January 2009

Love is a current of energy and power with the single intent of giving life to all who are ready and willing to welcome it through all its myriad manifestations. And the way to harness its power is simply to align one’s being – body, mind and heart - with its intent. It is a power one can ride on and direct to by uniting one’s personal intention with its universal intent; being energy it goes beyond where physical being is restricted. Making powerful intention towards someone makes love flow towards her direction.

And so I am closing my eyes and directing all my attention to love and opening my heart to love’s energy, power and intent and directing them to you beloved woman. This is my prayer . . . let your heart be filled with love.

Relax yourself, close your eyes gently, silence your mind, quiet your heart and feel the love flowing in and around you – in the cool wind from your window, in the warmth from your fireplace, in the soft touch of the person beside you flame . . . . Stay calm, take time, retire yourself for a while and receive all that you long for from love . . . love gives joy. . . . peace . . . . acceptance . . . . courage . . . . confidence . . . . encouragement . . . . enthusiasm . . . . passion . . . . whatever you need at the moment. Stay. . . relish love for as long as you wish . . . .

Now open your eyes and simply drink in the presence of love around you in the minutest blessing that life has bestowed upon you. Notice them, be aware of them, feel gratitude in your heart for them, say prayer of thanks for each one of them. These things are not without life. Every bit of blessing you now enjoy vibrates with the energy of love, you can caress them and they vibrate with the pulsation of love within you.

Then, live today with love in your heart. Let it flow in your face and let its radiance shine in the radiant smile you freely give to all those around you. Let love flow everywhere, to everyone – make small and big intentions of love to all who comes to you. Wonder of wonders, love flows back to you in torrent. Just wait, it trickles in the beginning, then like a river that widens with space and time it comes to you in even surprising ways.

Today and all the days of your life welcome love coming to you. For I love you beloved woman.

Let it flow and you will never want for love anymore. Let it flow and the faint heart you have will grow strong with love.

"Spiritual energy flows in and produces effects in the phenomenal world."
William James
