Woman and pursuit of happiness
Woman floating above the water
The article was entirely rejected not because it was not good at all ,but for two reasons:
1. I was not commercial and was too much SPIRITUAL and...
2.I wasn't a famous and popular writer in my country.
Know what ? I chose not to G-I-V-E- U-P!!
A few ideas made out of crystal!
Obviously I had to recover this lens from scratch and re-build it.
The reasons are possibly two: I had to update the lens to be more catchy and secondly I remembered how events in life coincide with our writings!
As I become "self-realized" day by day ,I fully and steadily comprehend that my writings were not simply writings ,but in a depth of this forward and upward stalking upon my Path , my writings was my re-written Life.
Every storytelling of mine ,including the stories told as into on HubPages have become the fuel of a new life of mine.
Like the editorial info on a Universal Magazine ,except that I had to create entirely the magazine,the stories and my courage from my beginning
So I return to the article and remember why and how this article was written by the end of 2006.
On November 2006 I was thinking how much happy a new writer could be as I was acquainted with two editors of a new well promised magazine about Lifestyle.
I was invited by a magazine editor to create a list of possible articles and write ,send and post my first one on this magazine.
The proposal was mostly attractive and relieving.The door was open for new opportunities!
I used my fantasy and sent hours upon similar articles on internet ,but in a spiritual way the article was becoming more enlightening and less commercial.
In this turn of my life, I haven't even chosen the Path nor the identity of this path.Still had to search to find out if I want to be commercial or spiritual.
Well I intuitively wrote from heart and what you read is the outcome of a great inner and outer research (or the start of it).
The Magical World of Women
"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float."

The issue has been suggested. It is multi dimensional and attractive....
I go through numerous magazine pages, web pages specially dedicated to the magical word "woman", I brush the dust off old and new books with pompous titles which refer to the female emancipation (did it really happen?).
I read countless letters, emails, messages from hundreds of women from every length and width of the planet.
I seek the so called "female identity", the true, the genuine personality of the modern age woman, I trace back through every single historical event, every single effort which marked the eras, I analyze the infinite actions of immersion out from the outmoded social system which lies in wait in every corner of the planet, and the "would be labels" which attach themselves on the course of the female element along the path of life and I sink in contemplation!
A planet full of experiences, knowledge and visions; an unbelievably inexhaustible world of nostalgia, a world which remains the treasure of all those who belong to the "woman's world".
I am really dazzled while travelling into the same paths walked by women like me, with dreams, a lot of dreams, and full of light, colours, desires and expectations.
The subject is absolutely exciting!!

From Girl to Goddess: The Heroine's Journey through Myth and Legend
Many are familiar with Joseph Campbell's theory of the hero's journey, the idea that every man from Moses to Hercules grows to adulthood while battling his alter-ego.
This book explores the universal heroine's journey as she quests through world myth. Numerous stories from cultures as varied as Chile and Vietnam reveal heroines who battle for safety and identity, thereby upsetting popular notions of the passive, gentle heroine.
Only after she has defeated her dark side and reintegrated can the heroine become the bestower of wisdom, the protecting queen and arch-crone.
Woman's identity and emancipation
Beyond anything else it looks like a magical journey of spiritual quest, as vulnerable as a butterfly's flying' into the vast historical map of humanity.
I feel everything so changing and fragile, it is worth it though!
Visions and words rush through my mind; questionings which deserve answers, serious issues which only a woman can answer.
I keep wondering for all those things most humans wonder today!
In the end I realize that amongst all this barrage of plethora of data I have forgotten the most important!
Far beyond everything and across the unrestrainedly babbling and the endless articles about "woman's identity and emancipation", what is that stands out of the crowd is the truth that springs from the woman's course through the ages and through her uniqueness.
I wonder how those women from these far ages would feel, how the female nature and intuition would function, and what laws ruled at those times.., and what has changed today?
From the past until today women have travelled, fought, conquered and been conquered, met new opportunities but also shouldered a lot of responsibilities.
This is known to everybody and it's not original at all ....

True Identity: The Bible for Women (TNIV) (Today's New International Version)
No matter what your stage in life, you're probably facing a challenge or a change. You're starting a new job or a new relationship. You're deciding whether to move or maybe to go back to school or whether you want another child. Or maybe you're just trying to figure out how to get 25 hours worth of things done in a 24-hour day. Whatever you're facing, you probably share your struggles with a friend. Now imagine your friend has incredible wisdom and is available anytime of the day or night! That's what this Bible is about: becoming who you are in Christ through your relationship with him. True Identity approaches issues you may be facing in an honest way. It connects the life-changing truth of God's Word to your everyday life, and focuses on the overarching theme of identity, emphasizing who you are in God's eyes. As you grow in your relationship with Jesus, you'll be encouraged and empowered by the Bible's messages of hope, joy, and faith. Features: *100 'Myth' articles---States a common accepted myth from the world in the form of a headline, followed by the first-person story of a woman who struggled with the lie and how that affected her life. A stats box reveals how common this issue is among women. The article concludes with principles from God's Word that debunk the myth. *30 'Ask Me Anything' profiles of the women of the Bible---Profiles in an interview format where the biblical woman speaks to modern readers about the life issue she faced. *200 'Conversations' notes---Penetrating questions to reflect on, either alone or with a friend or mentor. *200 'He Is' callouts---Highlights an attribute of God as shown or taught in Scripture and teaches how that affects a woman's identity. *300 'At Issues' notes---Short teaching notes on life topics such as money, sex, or pride. *66 book introductions *Topical index *Back matter articles---Practical articles, such as mentoring, developing a consistent quiet time, Bible reading plans, memorizing Scripture, etc.
Today woman quests a new identity and redefines her inner strengths by means of drawing new borders which compose female power, the "Modern Goddess".
Mother Goddess left her veils waving in the winds of eternity and forms ever after a very ancient image imprinted into human unconscious, but her myth exists into every woman.
She distinguishes through wonderful images that adorn every notable magazine (as is this one), through beautiful images of modern arts and communications, through women's desire to make their mark with their intense and pretty presences in every event.
Beyond anything else the one which matters is life itself and the quest of happiness which completes the portrait of woman's balance.
When God Was a Woman
Here, archaeologically documented,is the story of the religion of the Goddess. Under her, women’s roles were far more prominent than in patriarchal Judeo-Christian cultures. Stone describes this ancient system and, with its disintegration, the decline in women’s status. Index; maps and illustrations.
Remember that Happiness is simply the satisfaction of the mind
and springs from our inner world when we build bridges with it.
Everything is in our mind!
What matters is to choose positive thoughts,desire the outcome,and believe in the realization of your dreams.
We attract or create what we think, and it's really important
(be careful) to think positive.
