A few weeks ago, I ran across this 4-minute video and it sparked my interest to complete a post started in February.
Although, Goldie has been able to walk her "independent" talk ~ perhaps through greater opportunity ~ many women, around the world have not had such positive experience. Why? Well, there's many reasons, one of which I'd like to cover in this post. Being open to various perspectives, I would very much enjoy hearing from you which would assist me in the completion of the upcoming book, Transformative Union: Developing Masculine Feminine Harmony. Feminist or Masculinist Movement?
It is clear that women do need their own source of income (power) and truly, this was what the feminist movement was about. An important step for women overall; there are more women CEOs, etc. than ever before. However, the "feminist movement" was not at all about women stepping into their feminine power for creation. It was more about females moving more solidly into their masculine energy to create within the already established masculine business paradigm. An important step for women's independence, but for me, a serious difference that screams for understanding now ~ particularly around the further breakdown of relationships. Is it possible therefore that a better term would have been the Masculinist Movement for Women?
Before now, the world was not ready for the true feminine ~ which whether male or female we all hold inside. We had no feminine face of God and those who tried earlier connection with her, and with the Earth ~ male and female ~ were burnt at the stake, etc. However, from my perspective, a grand change occurred in 2008 when Mother Goddess did indeed return (a long story I won't go into now). Since then, a larger number of women are embracing the feminine and receiving great emotional and spiritual healing from doing so. This certainly has the potential to allow more feminine leadership and ripple outward to a wider majority of men.
The most important recognition is that we really can't step out of personal, relational, or global separation with 1/2 of the energy suppressed ~ particularly the creative portion. So this is truly an event that has the capacity to instill greater creativity, health, balance, and love in our world.
Perhaps this is the way Christ originally intended, where we truly know love from within? Where we all embrace and better understand all of ourselves and the relative masculine feminine ratio we each hold? Certainly it was not to separate further, but to create our own love balance and ripple it outward. Will we then call this the masculinist movement? Ha! Well, no, because many -- not all -- males don't necessarily wish to further embody their feminine. For them, that would not create greater empowerment, but turn them into a sissy, gay, or girl. Listen to the feminine perspective? What and be "pussy whipped"? Not true... but unfortunately the common view of the lowly feminine energy, upon this planet, 5,000 - 10,000 years in the making.
So what is feminine energy and how can we all embody it more? Well... that's what my upcoming book, or the workshops I hope to develop around this subject in the future, are all about. So, watch for that. For now, let's talk a bit about relationships and the best way to help them work through all this change.
Time to flip the order now and for all of us (male and female) to go more inward for our answers now?
