A woman’s capacity to nurture and her longing to merge with the Beloved are hardwired into her Arcline. But our culture has taken our essential nature and created a hook: telling us that we need something or someone outside ourselves to complete us—to be whole.

Yogiji respected women. He saw a woman as the mother of creation, and as life’s first teacher.

Give your children values. Give your friends values. If you ever want to be respected, graceful, happy, give other people best of their values. You can only do it if you give yourself best of the values. Don’t seek appreciation. Don’t wait for circumstances. Don’t. Give yourself a chance. Just a chance.
Let it be. God made you a woman, God made you a man. Let it be. Let it be. Don’t brand it, don’t blend it, don’t bend it, don’t change it. Let it be.
Everything in God’s command will give you way. Everything. Give a chance. If you even don’t trust God, don’t believe in God, you don’t know God, forget it, just give a chance. Give the Creator of you and creation a chance, so that you can be who you are meant to be. Question is to be, not to be. Answer is let it be. I am not asking you to hassle, I am not asking you to do everything, just give a chance.Read: "A Child’s Blessing"
