The return of the feminine seems well
The more we accept that the latter have
brought with them immense destruction in place of the
nurturing qualities all life so urgently needs, the more we will be
forced to explore the feminine and work towards its emergence and
integration into every level of our existence.
This is because, in the final analysis, it is a matter of,
...that shapes the direction we will take as a species.
This thinking about the world is changing and, with our growing understanding of the interconnectedness of all of life (on an underlying level), we increasingly realize that our one-sided materialistic and patriarchal ways cannot be sustained.
It has, after all, been hiding behind the veil, trying to escape the belittling, denying, devaluing and abusive treatment it has suffered through millennia of patriarchal thinking, structures and values.
Importantly, it cannot be explored
easily when we are stuck in a mind-set that restricts us to the
rational and material.
to Transform the World
Nevertheless, feminine attributes and principles, such as,
,,,and more, are not only named now, but longed for.
Whilst this process is ongoing, I feel that it is necessary to begin by distilling the essence of the feminine:
This aspect lies at the heart of the matter and it needs to break through the hazy veil and come to the fore, needs to penetrate all our thoughts, ideas, values and morals and guide our actions.
Without it we cannot love, nurture, care
and connect. Without it we cannot achieve a shift in paradigm.
Well, not long ago I went to a talk by an indigenous female teacher, who addressed this subject quite forcefully with focus on our current economic systems, defining them as being rooted in 'death' instead of 'life'.
After thinking about this for a while, I couldn't help but agree with her.
In contrast to all other life forms, which have 'thriving' at their core, our world-wide accepted system of production and consumption is, at its very core, based on 'destruction of life' rather than on 'sustaining of life'.
Global capitalism and global consumerism only thrive if we innovate, produce and sell faster and more...
To keep up this level of production, we have to,
The Divine Feminine
The Fractal Tree of
To keep this myth alive demands that we consume, that we buy the latest smart phone, the latest fashion, the latest overpriced food stuffs, present ever younger 'faces' through spending fortunes on cosmetics and surgery, flaunt ever bigger houses, better cars and so on.
This striving for 'consumption' - yes,
also the consumption now of information - leaves no space for love,
caring and sharing, for equal distribution or for coming together as
nations to tackle the issues that concern us all, such as the
destruction of our planet.
The most successful fear-creating mantra of our times is,
When we in Britain hear it, we condemn the EU or the Unions or the Liberals or the migrants and we vote Tory because 'we can trust them with the economy'.
We don't ask whether we really need all that stuff we produce worldwide, nor do we point the finger at the 0.01% who own most of the planet's wealth.
Instead, we keep working, producing, consuming and spending, contributing to the enforcement of the status quo of destruction in the process.
As long as we all operate from the core principle of 'destruction', we are stuck in a negative loop, unable to function from the core principle of the feminine, which is about creating life and sustaining it.
Unless we wholeheartedly adopt the concept of valuing life above everything else as our basic core principle,
This planet is about life - life that wants to thrive - not consumption.
The feminine as a principle is about life, about sharing, nurturing and sustaining life. It is about sensing and feeling with the heart the connection of all of life and valuing it as an incredible, and, dare I say it - sacred - gift, given not only to mankind, but to all living forms and beings.
Until this basic core principle of the
feminine underlies everything we attempt, we will have no worthwhile
shift in consciousness and no shift in paradigm...
