MysticBliss: Wild Woman Mother Teresa

This past Wednesday was the anniversary of the birth of Mother Teresa.

She was not perfect; she was grouchy and bossy.

But she got it done!

And being a real person just qualifies her as a true Wild Woman.

She risked everything every day to follow her heart.

And she did this while struggling for most of her life through a true dark night of the soul.

In her youth, she felt a deep and intense and real closeness to God. But later, this disappeared, and yet, she still believed. She believed that God is Love and that to serve God is to be that love in this world.

She was "real". I love that you mention grouchy and bossy. It reminds us that we can still be a good person, and do good things...and be who we are and not pretend to be "perfect". A lovely tribute!

I think someone needs to make a biopic about her. She really was real, wasn't she?

I like the way you put this. I always struggled with aspects of MT's attitudes, but you're right, she got it done.
