I wrote the following a few weeks ago when we first started to hear of children being separated from their parents as they tried to head towards a better life in the US. It triggered a worldwide shock wave – and I am not about to get embroiled in the why’s and the finger-pointing, nor will I respond to any negative discussions that may result from this sharing of my thoughts. These words are just my verbal meanderings as I try to sort it all out in my mind – what is the way forward?
Here in Australia, at the same time, there was outrage against the men who perpetrate crimes against women and the fears of women generally as the focus was once again turned, not towards educating men that this is not acceptable, but in educating women in the need to be more vigilant and more restricted in their actions. Women were standing up and asking why they need to be careful, why they need to stay indoors, why should they not be free to venture outside without a male escort?
I do my best in such situation to remain outside the energy, to be the Detatched Compassionate Observer, but in the face of all this emotion it was hard to remain separate – and certainly it was hard to remain silent. So I did what I naturally do – I wrote.
Regardless of your stance in these or similar topics I hope you will read beyond these initial thoughts of mine and to the voice I now hold in my heart that I would share with those who would like to hear. I’m not saying I am right, heck I’m as confused as anyone else as to how this human race got themselves to this point, but I do have a few thoughts that may give you a pause for thought, an idea how you want to travel forward from this point.
This is what I wrote:
If every woman curls up and says “This is just how it is. Nothing has changed in the past and nothing will change in the future,” we, as a Collective Consciousness will choose that reality. We will be agreeing that it is ok to disempower women, that it’s OK to make women into perpetual victims. Yes, women are also taking that party line – they have been led to believe that they do not have the right to expect to be able to walk through a park at night without considering personal safety as a priority. They have been sold the concept that it is up to women to protect themselves from attack, and by default they have agreed that men hold power over them. Most who follow this path do not even see it. They do not understand that by following the ethos of “Nothing Changes” nothing WILL change.
Each individual, whether male or female, who cannot stand up and be counted in whatever way they are able to do so, is supporting the view that women (and children) don’t count.
I’m not an activist. I don’t follow world events. I am not the person who will go on marches or protests. I am the silent sister who simply adds her voice to the many other individual voices around the world saying ENOUGH. I am the sister of those who are afraid, but I am past my fear. I do not live by fear. It is no longer a part of my world. I am one individual who is part of the whole who says that the dominance over the weak, the hurting and the innocents is over.
Fear is the means that has been used for thousands of years to keep the balance in favour of those who perpetuate the fear. Those who would be rulers. This Energy we are discussing here, and that in the USA with the separation and imprisonment of children, and in almost all other parts of the planet is this Fear.
Now it is time for choice. Do we stay with fear or do we work now, raise each individual voice in whatever manner the person is drawn to do for the beneft of innocents. Do you want your daughters, and their daughters’ daughters to be able to be able to go for a run in the park, without fear? Or is your fear so great that you cannot even add your prayers to the growing movement of those who say NO MORE.
Even now, reading this it doesn’t seem unreasonable, but what if I were to tell you that even that reasonable-sounding voice is also adding to the disharmonious energy of Fear? As too is that last sentence, because some of you will have become annoyed, angry even, at my words – “What? That’s BS! Everyone can fight in any way they want/feel called.” And whilst that’s not wrong either, we have to dig deep and discover the base emotions behind our thoughts. It is usually righteous indignation – which has the base of Fear, and without Fear, there is nothing to fight. It’s that simple. And the sad part is that most who call out in this way don’t even realise that it is within the Energy of Fear that they are walking.
It is so very, very hard to live in this Reality and avoid Fear. It is everywhere. We all live in perpetual Fight or Flight Response and for some, the slightest thing can trigger anger, annoyance, even chest-puffing bluffing. Today I saw a conversation on Face book between two people who consider themselves as “Lightworkers” – they were talking about the number of guns they have and that they were ready for whatever they thought was coming. I also heard of other Spiritual people who talk about Love and Light – and gear up for marches against something that angers them. And so much more in a similar vein.
It saddens me that the folk who genuinely want to do the right thing, who feel they are defending those who cannot defend themselves; who genuinely feel they can make a difference still feel the need to follow the same aggressive model that hasn’t worked but has been the norm for the last few thousand years. They cannot see that they are not, after all, following the Goddess, the Divine Feminine, they are still feeding the world of anger, aggression and the “I am going to fight for my cause through my physicality.”
Without a doubt the events that cause us to fear, to be angry with the actions of our leaders need to stop. I don’t think that anyone who calls themselves “Human” can disagree with that. But do we believe – I mean truly believe – that following the male-dominated model of the last few thousand years is the right way to continue?
These, of course, are just my thoughts, my ramblings, but when I realised that the words I wrote were still feeding that anger and fear, I stopped and took a good long look at what I was hoping to achieve, and I realised that my actions in writing those words, and the way I believe these changes will come into this world are very widely different. My words shout that we need to change this NOW. Right Now. Someone needs to fix this problem now so we no longer have this fear and anger in the world. We don’t want to live like this, with this fear any more. The underlying story of these words is like that of a child – lashing out in fear and confusion and trying, in the only way she knows how, to fix things – but the fixing tool is broken. It no longer works, in fact it hardly ever did work for most people. It’s a boy-tool, male energy working through money and technology and power-games. It no longer works and more and more people are realising that they need to find another way.
The “other way” is ultimately in the balance and harmony of the male and the female – but guys – we are riding pendulum of emotions and if we are not careful we will send the pendulum shooting too far the other way (more on that another day), but for now we need to walk our talk.
Trying to combat Fear with Anger will not work. Love and Light do not walk hand-in-hand with guns and argument. Peace and Calm do not blend well with dogma and dominance. Each time we bring these together we are saying that this is the world we choose. We are building the future reality with our actions now. I know that the future world I want to see is not these things.
My truth, as I see it now, is that these things will not be fixed by marches and demonstrations and fear and anger. These things will not be fixed overnight. Heck, I don’t think these things will be fixed in my lifetime. Or the life time of my children’s children. But maybe, if we get it right now, then their children, my great-great grandkids, may be able to walk in freedom and balance.
We are honoured to be here right now. This is a time of New Beginnings and New Knowledge – and we need to step up and use that New Knowledge to bring about the New Beginnings of the future of humanity. WE are the ones to take the first steps in turning away from that old male model of aggression that has failed all but a few, and we need to continue what the Hippy / Flower Power generation started. Peace through Unity and Love.
Through each Individual Consciousness acting through Love, Compassion, Prayer, Unity and Knowledge we will slowly move towards that time of balance. We just need to get organised in following that peaceful route together. And the first step is coming to Unity in how we are going to approach this matter.
For now, I Energetically support the Collective Consciousness of Humanity and when enough people get together in this way, believe me – you can see the changes starting to happen.
