Catwoman. I love this movie. I know, I’m the only one, but so what. I love it so much, that I’ve watched more times than I can count. I also plan to write an essay about it. But in brief, one of the things I love about it is the relationship between the women. I particularly enjoy the wise women role of Ophelia. It is she that Patience Phillips (Catwoman) turns to for guidance in her journey. Patience is concerned that she has lost herself in the transformation. But, Ophelia tells her not to fear, because she is a part of long line of “Catwomen.” By accepting who you are, all of who you are, you can be free and freedom is power –
I often feel this duality. I struggle between what I think I should be and my true nature. I long to release my inner Catwoman and liberate myself.
Our Deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God (a catwoman) Your playing small does not serve the World. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel unsure around you. (So crack your whip..) We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us: it is in everyone. As we (wear our catsuit) and let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others (meow) -Marianne Williams, with a little help from Catwoman
