Mystical Mantra Energy

Apparently here in Europe there’s a Jesus holiday going on today. Something about the Holy Spirit. Obviously, I am not well versed but respectful. Posting this, my favorite version of Hare Krishna, in respect to the holiness of the day. But isn’t everyday holy?

A mantra is mystical energy encased in a sound structure and each mantra contains within its vibrations a certain power. But of all mantras, the maha-mantra (the Hare Krishna mantra) has been prescribed as the easiest and surest way for attaining God Realization in this present age.” 

George Harrison (1943-2001),
in his autobiography :’I, me and Mine’

Bossy

Yes, I know I am bossy. I’m working on being less aggressive with my “bossyness” but it’s hard being a woman with a brain who knows what she wants, the way she wants it and when she wants it. When you’re a feminist like me who grew up in a patriarchal culture, the sticks of California, where Jesus reigns & women are expected to submit to the will of men (especially the stupid ones) you feel so much resistance within. Have you ever seen those episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County? Those women can’t even fucking take out a tampon without their husbands on top of them. This is a common practice in 2011? Can a lady get some time to take a shit, alone?

The lifetime of hearing my Eastern European mother sternly tell me “never let a man control you” doesn’t really add to my bossy situation. Add the nearly 10 years of living in New York City & working in my FORMER profession (selling salt to snails) doesn’t help. My “bossyness” is a knee jerk reaction and kind of like an over compensation for what I’ve experienced and still experience. So listen people, I’m trying hard here. Believe me.  It’s been over 30 years of living and things don’t change over night. So tranquilo.

Speaking of bossy, I’m currently reading BOSSYPANTS by Tina Fey. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!!

PS: Am I being bossy?

Halleluyah. Glory Halleluyah.
