Discussion Board: All Matters Spiritual and Spiritualist

I am 66. I have become socially "invisible" one and a half to two years ago: Nobody notices me any longer, nobody cares, nobody (either man or younger woman) wants to see an old woman.
Like you, I have found my truth. It has to be anchored in strength. When I am fully anchored in my soul, in Spirit, I am happy. I don't need a man to make me whole, to give me value: I am my own value, I am the meaning of my life. It's a very sweet feeling.
Mainstream movies and media still give the Cinderella treatment to women: According to them, women NEED to be saved by a strong alpha man. It sells at the box office and in the marriage industry. But this is a fallacy: There is no such thing as "happy ever after" because we chose to come to this life - repeat: we CHOSE to incarnate - in order to grow our strength, our soul, our loving capacity, and happiness has nothing to do with that. Loving starts with loving one-self; then, it can radiate to others. If there is no self-love at the core of a person, her life is a facade, a hollow tree trunk.
Think of a strong older woman as some kind of goddess, very grounded, very secure, standing proud, protected from the cruelty of the world. The cruelty of this world is only a learning tool. But it's not the only learning tool: Wisdom allows a soul to learn without pain. Wisdom allows growth without pain. This is why I mentioned above that the feeling can be sweet.
