My answer to war and degradation is WHO WE ARE from Origin to Destiny, including Ma Mandala an artful Creation Story from a feminine perspective.
If there's hope of 'turning this ship around', it comes not from who wins the race to destroy the other, but from respect and gratitude for the miracle that is life.
THE BIRTH OF DEEPER UNDERSTANDING
My mother told me over and over a litany of diminishment:
"It is men who are important. They are smarter, braver, stronger, more significant, more powerful, more valuable, and yes, more fun than women.”
She thought that feelings made us weak.
Her intention, I'm sure, was to prepare me for life.
"If you don't believe me, she said, just look around and see who's in charge - who's the boss".
It seems she, along with most of us, did not know to distinguish between The Masculine and The Feminine as archetypes. She only knew about Men and Women. Now, in the 21st century, we are exploring and coming to understand way beyond the two gender identities of M or F that once were the only two boxes we could check. What a great time to be alive!
I bow to you deeply, Mom, for giving me, in no uncertain terms, my life's work.
My cosmic assignment: to embody and portray the significance and value of
I lift up
The Feminine, married to The Masculine
The yin and the yang of who we are
within every one of us,
between each of us and each other,
and collectively among us as we create together.
