"Zen teaches nothing; it merely enables us to wake up and become aware. It does not teach, it points." ~D.T. Suzuki

Today I Rise


I Rise

"Where are you?
Where are you, little girl
with broken wings but full of hope?
Where are you,
wise women covered in wounds?
Where are you?"
Today is International Women's Day

Women have a right to be treated with
decency, fairness and RESPECT!

"The world is missing what I am ready to give: 
My Wisdom, My Sweetness, My Love and My hunger for Peace."

Celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.
International Women's Day (March 8)
is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.


Make a Pledge For Parity
"Honor your daughters. They are honorable."

“I tell my story, not because it is unique,
but because it is not. It is the story of many girls.”

Malala Yousafzai

“Life is not easy for any of us.
But what of that?
We must have perseverance
and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted
for something and
that this thing must be attained.”

Marie Curie

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of Children." And he said: 
      Your children are not your children. 
      They are the sons and daughters 
of Life's longing for itself. 
      They come through you but not from you, 
      And though they are with you, 
yet they belong not to you. 
      You may give them your love but not your thoughts. 
      For they have their own thoughts. 
      You may house their bodies but not their souls, 
      For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, 
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. 
      You may strive to be like them, 
but seek not to make them like you. 
      For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday. 
      You are the bows from which your children
 as living arrows are sent forth. 
      The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might 
that His arrows may go swift and far. 
      Let your bending in the archer's hand 
be for gladness; 
      For even as he loves the arrow that flies, 
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Khalil Gibran
I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

There is no greater agony
than bearing an untold story inside you.

If you don't like something, change it.
If you can't change it, change your attitude

Maya Angelou
A woman should be like a single flower,
not a whole bouquet.
