“The Wise woman releases herself to the cycles and rhythms of living. She knows that all things must end, and is able to let go of all things.
There are no fantasies in her mind, no vanities in her body. She doesn’t contrive her behaviors; she acts from the seasons of her heart.
She does not retreat from living; she is aware of her own mortality. She knows that a rose returns to the earth after it’s blossoms are spent.”
