Feminist? No! A Woman Of Strength? Yes! — reblogged

Feminist? No! A Woman Of Strength? Yes! is about the nature of strength. It is also about the difference between domination and cooperation. Some people emphasize the use of force to get their way. Other focus upon working in cooperation for shared goals.

Consider why the author rejects feminism.

A woman should be proud of her femininity not down on it. A woman can be soft yet having strength to get the job done. She gives of her heart yet not a patsy. She speaks kindness but stands her ground. She believes she compliments her spouse as he compliments her. She can be a leader yet a servant at the same time. She can knock down a wall yet be feminine. She can make her life the way she wants it not what somebody else says. She is not perfect but works towards change. (from here)

One of the things that many politicians try to do these days is pit us against each other. There is an appalling senselessness to listening to such people. In the end, not even the schemers who promote dissension benefit from it. Increasing strife eventually leads to war. In war we pull each other down. Even those who lead the “winning” side often find themselves among masses of dead bodies and rubble — if they survive.

Without a good commentary, Ecclesiastes can be confusing. It is a seemingly gloomy book. It tells of a man’s quest to seek happiness without God. Yet these lines are easily understood.

Ecclesiastes 4:7-12 New King James Version (NKJV)

Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun:

There is one alone, without companion:
He has neither son nor brother.
Yet there is no end to all his labors,
Nor is his eye satisfied with riches.
But he never asks,
“For whom do I toil and deprive myself of good?”
This also is vanity and a grave misfortune.

The Value of a Friend

Two are better than one,
Because they have a good reward for their labor.
10 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion.
But woe to him who is alone when he falls,
For he has no one to help him up.
11 Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm;
But how can one be warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Schemers who think of nothing but their own status and their own gain live alone, suffer alone, and die alone. Even if someone loves them they perceive it not. They are too full of themselves and what they must have. There is always something.

  1. Thanks, Tom, I enjoyed this post. Recently politicians have really mastered the trick of separate, divide, and control. When the population is busy attacking and blaming each other, we aren’t looking at them.

  2. I was exploring the next song to post in relation to King Solomon which is What Kind of Fool Am I when I stopped to read your post. I believe you answered Anthony Newly song lyrics question with your ending statement.

    “Schemers who think of nothing but their own status and their own gain live alone, suffer alone, and die alone. Even if someone loves them they perceive it not. They are too full of themselves and what they must have. There is always something.”

    Thanks for the inspiration for my next post..

    Regards and good will blogging.
