Oh to be a woman in this world… Men have dropped the ball so unfathomably for so long but doesn’t it hurt as much when women are so cruel and dismissive to each other? After 4000 years of extreme patriarchy, brothers not taking care of sisters has been a horrendous given, with catastrophic consequences including the subjugation and crushing of the feminine in both genders. History, and our current societies, sadly showcase what the absence of the divine feminine in men has produced. What is less obvious, but as important, are the results of the subjugation of the feminine within women.
It seems unlikely that men, in general, will lead the charge in fostering the evolution of humanity. So, there is a massive opportunity for women to take leadership positions, to steer humanity in a more empathetic and conscious direction. That requires sisters to take care of sisters, to embrace the beauty and power of the divine feminine, to not fall prey to the unconscious allures of ultra-masculinity masquerading as feminine power.
Fighting unconsciousness only begets unconsciousness. Unconsciousness is transmuted by compassion and non-judgment, as long as we proceed with the understanding that unconsciousness is not purposeful. It is not evil. It is just massively confused, which leads to fear and lashing out.
Fortunately, the cliche that ‘love conquers all’ is true. When we lead boldly with the heart, and learn to flow through the resistance that comes back our way, and still exude the gentle confidence that comes with being heart-centered… Well, if you haven’t tried this, consider giving it a go. Treat it like an empathetic game. Give your full attention to the recipient of the accompaniment you are offering. Hold them in their place of uncertainty, the unnerving place that is stoking their deep feelings of trauma, betrayal, neglect. Without a word show them that you feel where they are at and everything is okay. Notice their response. It might be subtle. It might be obvious.
It is the change that comes when we cease to be slaves to our generational and life-long patterns. When we become conscious of those deeeeep-seated patterns, we are free to choose to be the loving souls we desperately want to be. When we give the fruits of this revelatory way of being to others, especially those who expect the ‘business as usual’ from you… Well, that can effect serious change.
