You may have witnessed the recent explosive disentanglement of masculine and feminine energy within me and my surroundings. Did it occur to you too? For me it was a brief, very confronting, highly emotional but necessary period in time that comprised exactly 7 x 7.7 = 54 days, precizely between three full moons. I am at peace for along time already with the understanding that whatever happens to me is a miniature prelude of what humankind can expect on a macro scale. In a sense it prepares me and my awareness to be of some kind of use by the time this is needed. Meanwhile I conduct my daily activities with the development of our sustainocratic groups within the City of Tomorrow concept of wellness driven cocreation. As such a new energetic field has emerged around me and is affecting me and everything that our Global STIR community does. I sense it as the emergence of Divine Femininity.
Equality man and woman
As single dad with two daughters the adult man/woman combination was fixed in me as a single identity. I was in harmony (see picture) with myself and my two children, both feminine. The masculine part of me had to structure the household, protect the family from the political economic aggressions, take care of an income, etc. The feminine part in me was caring about the growing up and wellness of my two daughters. In essence this is what our current society feels like too. Masculinety and femininity unified in a dominant masculine structure. Our political economy of hierarchies and dependence is highly masculine while the expensive care and repair system is a masculine version of feminity. Just like in my case there seems to be an unnatural kind of harmony that is about to be messed up.
Here is a short reflection about my process. My eldest daughter already moved out to live her life with her boyfriend, soon husband. When my youngest daughter started to demand her freedom and space too my own presence transformed. My single fatherhood and harmony collapsed, just like the economized masculine care society collapses. My daughter reacts on my worries “why worry? I know my limits and get support for my safety from my friends”. In essence it is exactly what I claim with Sustainocracy in the participation society “we don’t want this (expensive) care and control from government, we take responsibility ourselves, together”. The whitepaper on the wellness-continuum-2 explains this societal transformation process.
Theory is great but the reality of letting go my caring mentality into a mentality of shared responsibilities appeared as an intense inner clash. Various female messengers appeared in my life to confront me in a very short time with my old masculine greed, my tremendous sudden emotional chaos and the emergence of the divine femininity as basis for a new phase of personal harmony based on genuine equality between men and women, masculinity and femininity.
Also in the sustainocratic processes I had been the masculine representation of masculine and feminine manifestation unified in me. If I wanted to let my processes grow I would have to let go of it and allow the equality appear between the emerging divine feminity and the redefinition of old, obsolete masculine dominance. After my clash with my self and the help of several women I became surrounded by literally 100’s of women. With each and all together I developed a relationship of love on a very special, deep and exciting energetic level. At first it was confusing, because it arose my natural sexuality and masculine desire to control. But the women were very clear to me: “we don’t need your care, we want your partnership, your transparant love and divine connecting overview over the emerging reality”. They give me their partnership, love and divine femininity in return to take their authentic place in the community and act as a consequence. Wow! What a great force started to deploy itself.
Genuine equality appeared and it was beautiful. Never in my life I had experienced this before. Not even in my two broken marriages. Now I was in the midst of it and broke through into the era of pure love, the emergence of a new phase of human life, the rebirth that I have been writing about for decades had become reality, including for me. The latter surprised me maybe most. Why me? Why this way? How will this evolve? What is expected from me when emotions hit the world? We will see. I let go and learned to go with the flow.
Three powerful lines of evolution defined themselves for progression in this field with our global movement:
Core human values: The core human values and sustainocratic processes had brought us to this stage of breakthrough. Our core values also developed our column of values which paint a strong contrast between the worlds.
People may use different names or references for it but in essence our new framework for societal evolution has opened up so much space that the divine femininity could manifest itself not only individually but now also in the collective group processes men-women, women-women, men – men. Our old masculine societal structures based on power, hierarchies and dependencies crumple. We don’t want them anymore. We seek the authenticity in people without prejudice or demand, just engagement in the development of our shared core human values. New relationships emerge based on this new energetic dimension of divine femininity, change, sustainable wellness and true equality. The letting go is manifesting itself with the comfort of new connectability in genuin wellness and proper equality for masculine and feminine energy forms that interact in their values driven potential. It is difficult for both to adjust to this new reality. The memory of the old is still powerfully present yet opening up for an intense dialog about relationships, sexuality, role models, rituals, cocreation, love, true values, healing pains, eliminating old impediments, daring, fears, progress, etc. The open dialogue and shared emotions helps us deal with this new reality. It feels good, powerful, caring for us all together and very lovable among eachother. A hugging and kissing type of society emerges in Sustainocracy as a phyical contrast to the old reality where we found it hard to say even hello or touch each other.
Healing: The biggest drama of where we come from is the enormous historic and often hidden surpression and abuse of (young) women, especially in this era of economized emancipation, perceived levels of equality and freedom. Men and women are educated to perform, to be docile, to be subordinate to economic securities and not express their emotions (except maybe our greed). The divine femininity was eliminated from our reality and replaced with individualism within hierarchies, sexual abuse and aggression, disconnected from the feminine roots through excessive masculine bureaucracies and economized care systems.
Within the City of Tomorrow divine feminine representatives now group together and make programs that help people (men and women, young and old) cross their line, deal with their own and collective chaos, heal, put their past in perspective and open up to divine feminity by breaking loose from fear, hate and anger. Emotions are allowed, shared and used to evolve into understanding, awareness, love and learning. To relate in a new way with masculinity without the old dogma’s, rules and limitations. Both men and women now need to evolve into this new relationship. Personal relationships have the tendency to fall back into old behavior. It takes guts, open, transparant dialog and experimentation with new experiences to progress. As a huge community we help each other while the field of energy grows every day.
Awareness and education: The breakthrough opens up to new awareness based formats and education. New products and technologies arise to help young women (and their mothers) develop their own divine feminine awareness. Being a woman is becoming very special, with its own initiation rituals around menstruation, sexuality, sense of self leadership and ownership. Intimate initiation workshops from girl to woman, the relationship with men in different stage of their lives, awareness of the body and its secrets, pleasures and care are introducing themselfs into society, our schools and neighborhoods. An entirely new educational format emerges in which the girls and women get to discover their entire divine femininity in all aspects of their being, their development and symbiosis with their surroundings.
My own role has transformed from initiator of sustainocratic processes to the connecting facilitator between impressive masculine and feminine forces within the context of social and societal innovation (COS3I). Huge circles of social inclusion in Sustainocracy are appearing where masculine and feminine expressions of music, art, craft, sport, entrepreneurship, care for core values, etc emerge, group together and start shaping society in a totally new way. And above all, the processes are being guided primarily by women. The next blogs will develop this further with examples of female partners with powerful awareness, experience and methods that have joined our core values driven movement, teaming up with me in the field of sustainable human progress and now make it a world wide process that goes far beyond the bounderies of myself.
Again the world is shocked by the events in Kabul, London and many other places. When we study the miracle of life at molecular or even smaller level we arrive at energetic patterns that we have associated with those intense feelings referred to as “love”. This largely inexplicable sensation unites molecules, people and species in a symbiotic bond for sustainable evolutionary progress. Over time people developed stories and rituals around it in an attemped to name the bonding as an act of a universal God. The diversity of these stories, captured in religious formats, is a blessing that unites people and establishes care, compassion and warm connectivity through habbits, festivities and rituals.
The beauty of this diversity of group unification is disturbed by people who use this diversity as a differentiation and judgement, often with self interests as motivator to create fear, disconnection, hate and chaos. Such conditions of instability may serve their specific evil interests over the back of our natural quest for peace and stability. There is only one way to address this attack on our natural wellness:
- We mourn our losses through moments of silence and reflection,
- We actively show equality, compassion and love by gathering and hugging each other publically no matter where we come from, what story we adhere to or how we stand in life. When it comes to safety and harmony we are in it together.
At 16.00 we gather to make this statement, no matter where we are in the world and repeat this as often as we need to show evil that love only strengthens when it shows its face.
With the kickoff of the first sustainocratic initiative in the city of Eindhoven (the Netherlands) the first step is made to create a “purpose driven economy”. What is the difference with what we have today? And why is it important for the rest of the world to follow the experiment in Eindhoven and, better still, start one of their own?
Our current economies are not purpose but consequence driven. The human being is positioned as compulsory consumer. The entire institutionalized society is focused on creating a mountain of wealth around this consumer that gives a sense of abundance at all times. The only way to access this abundance is through financial means. Some of these means are individually obtained through the production, logistics and sales infrastructure necessary to maintain this mountain of abundance. Other get paid out of the hierarchies funded through taxation on this consumer organization. Or through speculation on material resources contained in this “having” type of culture. And finally also debt.
The consequences of such consumer economy show a growing tendency of (negative) influences that need attention through investments. Think of infrastructures, healthcare organizations, police, etc attending the attitude of greed and its effects on the human being, physically and mentally. This also shows an exponential growth which is equally reflected in the world economy through the costs of societies. At the same time we see our environment and human behavior deteriorate fast.
The model of economies of growth purely based on unlimited consumption and the consequences thereof, is obsolete because we use our natural resources wrongly, destroy our environment, sicken ourselves and eventually eliminate our evolutionary chances.
Fragmented complex society
We know this now, including scientific proof, but have difficulties in changing the course of society. We created a very complex mesh of fragmented financial entities with dependencies and interests among each other on which powers and influences are being based. Each institutions has a perceived right to exist and defend its own interests. There is not one single institution that takes full responsibility for sustainable human progress. The institutional mesh is based on fragmented self interest and competition.
Key is the understanding that no institutional specialization can take holistic responsibility for human safety, health or sustainable progress. It is the human being itself that needs to take this responsibility. What went wrong in the consequence driven consumer economy was that the human being delegated its wellness through fragmented institutionalized structures that grew into tremendously inflated organs like an abscess or cancer would do on a sick body. Instead of serving humankind they try to serve themselves. This fragmented type of human organization is institutionally sick with the risk of the cancers to develop themselves further and destroy our evoutionary chances.
Purpose driven economies
The big difference with the old consumer economy is that it is not based on consumption and growth but on true value creation (purpose). It is not based on massive productivity and distribution but on local content. It is a circular type of economy where “purpose” is defined according local human needs, obtained through local effort and using local resources in a circular way.
To achieve a purpose driven economy an intense transformation is needed. But it can be done using the same institutional instruments of the old society. Each participant needs to cure its cancer like development and abuse and become functional again within the scope of local for local requirements. It requires a different mentality and true transformative leadership in each institution involved.
Abundance is not presented through logistic channels from around the world, it is created by local cooperative efforts. In such local cooperation we see the four traditional human values come together: attitude, creativity, environment and wisdom. Those values in the old economy were split into separate institutions that do not act locally but globally, not in an integrated way but based on self interest, greed and fragmented excellence. Now we bring this global expertise back to the local context.
Using what we have learned
The great advantage of today is that the old consequence driven consumer economy has left us with a huge amount of accumulated experience and material knowledge thanks to the concentrated specialized, fragmented functions of expertise that developed over time. This would never have occurred if this phase of humankind had not taken place. For a long time it was very constructive. Now it has become destructive.
We hence do not criticize our past but use the best of its elements in our new progress. We can of course be critical to those old time forces that try to prevent us from creating purpose driven progress. It is just a matter of time for that opposition to disappear. Eventually the purpose driven economies will develop there where the old one has become obsolete, entered into a crisis, providing room for renewal, not just in a physical, organizational sense but especially emotionally, spiritual and rationally when people become aware.
Complex transformative process
It is a complex process that is typically developed locally and bottom up with executive support to make it happen. The reason that it happened in Eindhoven first and not yet in another region is simply because this small Dutch town unites the essential ingredients to make it happen. What are these ingredients:
- Awareness at executive level
- Open democracy of true equality
- Level of education and experience
- The right people at the right time
These qualities produce the necessary flexibility that can address the future with adaptive determination in a complex modern world. People take responsibility individually, convince their surroundings to support change and find ways to make it happen. The purpose is found in the essentials of human existence: food, health, security, wellness (housing, energy, etc) and knowledge. When it becomes clear that the global consequence driven consumer economy is obsolete speed is required to create a new sense of reality and responsibility, including a change in behavior. When the time of old abundance is over, new abundance needs to be created, preferably on time.
Wellness is not a cost or right but the result of a responsibility and hard work (purpose) together. When circumstances change stability is found in change too. In a sustainocracy the purpose driven economy is initiated together. We do this by making human wellness a purpose driven issue of the local population with the support of the accumulated institutional excellence and enhancing potential.
Purpose driven economic development based on sustainocratic complexities is needed to save humankind from the present day destructive expectations caused by the consequence driven consumer economy. If not we will face disaster. Yet if we assume responsibility individually and institutionally we also face a huge transformative challenge that will upset everything that we have known so far. The choice between destruction or working together on a healthier perspective is easy for me. I have become self aware and dedicated more than a decade to come to these views and initiatives. It is a start, giving comfort that humankind has a choice indeed. A choice that simply depends on one own and not someone else. But I realize that it is a difficult one, not only when one has to make it, but also for me to reach out to the world and make the choice known to all. If one does not know than no choice will be made. My personal challenge is hence multiple. Make it happen for myself, provide proof to my surroundings and reach out to all of you with sufficient clarity that you take sufficient confidence in the course that I have taken in order to let go of old securities and create new ones for yourselves and your direct surroundings.
