Here’s a good story of hope and strong women! I have seen them on TV and the internet, but really took interest during this past year of civil disobedience. Taking it to the streets with their message of equality, for all. I love these gals, rebel nuns fighting to save democracy.
Important lesson here is that each of us can make a difference for the good of all, when we show up. Their mission statement into 2020 is something we can stand behind. And they do it with fun and humor. The Vatican has denounced their actions as “radical feminist themes incompatible with the faith.” Oh well! Peacefully reaching out seems to threaten some. Boston showed us how to show up, peacefully, and denounce those who show violent intentions. People of all faiths coming together for peace. You go girls! Show ’em how it’s done!
Sister Campbell’s memoir, entitled A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change, and Community, was published in April 2014
I’ve given a link to their story and interviews. And below, I poem of emergence. Enjoy!
It wasn’t about ‘Strength’.
She already was an overflowing Source of ‘Strength’.
It was about finally becoming aware of the fact that everything she ever searched and longed for was living all inside of her. It became clear that everything she ever admired was all part of who she was, it was all a reflection of her own purest Inner Being.
She started to breathe in and breathe out confident positive energy and started to build a loving and caring connection with her environment.. as she realized: As above, so below, as within, so without.
She embraced herself and nourished herself as much as she could, and as she did this she healed herself into wholeness. She was now able to be a fountain of abundance for others, always aware that she could only give others what she gave herself.
She was a caterpillar who became a butterfly.
She finally saw it, believed it and became it.
