Quotes by Jean Houston
- Margaret Mead – “Jean, when the time is right you go out and you tell the women the world over that they must embrace their power! They must challenge the way things are done. They must build a new social order!
You are telling your stories, and you must continue to tell stories, because solutions to the problems facing the future will arise from the subjective world, from the unfolding of levels of understanding, from the implicate order that is held in the metaphysical womb that you all contain, which is gestating a world to come. This nonlinear mind we hold is the Mother mind,. It is not analytical or sequential, but is by and large circular, empathic and narrative.
Oh thank God/Goddess that our time is now, when wrong comes up to meet us everywhere, never to leave us till we take the longest stride of soul that folk ever took. Affairs are now soul-sized. They are the exploration of the God/Goddess. What are you making for her? It takes so many thousands of years to wake. But will you wake, for pity’s sake?
Of course you will! You are Women of Wisdom!
