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.
This is not an attempt to make any suggestions or even fun of the male tradition of successions of popes in the Vatican. The masculinity of this position closest to God has been formally inherited from the Apostle Peter who witnessed part of the life Christ and established a church in his name to pass on the holy Word.
In reality the Church became the parallel structure next to Greed, the moralization of a celestial responsibility and the humanized absolution of Guilt. Two very masculine worlds of “the doing”, with abundance of hierarchy, power and control. It is said that when the Roman Empire collapsed the high level bureaucrats from the Empire crossed over to the Church as bishops. Thus they could continue their elevated position and avoid personal chaos or, worst even, the anger of the public tribune that would most certainly blame them for the collapse of the empire. But this article is not about the disputable morality in churches.
Morality and Ethics have nothing to do with hierarchy, external powers or authorities of control in name of God or Money. It has to do with the inner learning process of what is truly meaningful in life, the existential processes of learning “to be”. This is a recognition of birth as a Holy miracle of life, the power of evolution and the secrete to eternal human progress. The cradle of birth is in the womb of our women and hence the true wisdom of ethics and morality is feminine. If anyone should symbolize this it should be a woman.
In my model for human complexities I show the continuous battle between “the doing”and “the being”, the masculine and feminine that together clash and create progress. Both men and women are the same but essentially different, the yin-yang of life that melts in a burst of harmonic excitement to generate eternity through renewal.
In our money driven era the masculinity of the doing has also extended to the women. In consumer economies women have become as masculine as their counter parts, emancipating for financial independence at the expense of femininity. In the area of greed (see drawing) the true feminine meaning of “being” has been abolished. Its evolutionary meaning has been taken over by the meaningless invention of money and individual financial independence within the modern tradition of financial growth. Money indeed has freed women from a home bound slavery and formalized equality in human rights between men and women in many parts of the world. This tendency is well received and essential for sustainable human progress even though the original motivation to free women from their masculine suppression has logically been more economical and political than based on universal truths and ethics. Nevertheless it allowed a new culture to arise in which the true equality can be developed in a new era of awareness.
Meanwhile the system of freedom has made men, women and their children slaves of the consumer driven economies. There is no ethics or morality anymore in this society that has abolished every little piece of interpersonal warmth to procreate and educate our children with true universal values. Human equality is in the right to consume and create debts. We have exchanged our existence for short term cash and hunt for it in a generalized, dominant masculine institutionalized way. The “underworld” I call this, since it is the world of fragmented, individualized greed and chaos below the horizontal line where most of humankind resides today. We are equal in “the doing” and had to deliver our identity, “our being” to the system.
Collapse of financial markets
With the current crises in the financial world a lot of people are waking up. When we loose our protective securities from a virtual system than we learn to see our dependence and naked incapability of self sufficiency. We notice that we have been neglecting our children out of selfishness. They grow up cold, rational and individualistic. Some call it “the lost generation” which I hurry to dismiss our of experience. The adult ones that suggest this loss of a generation are the same ones that have lost faith in our youth to continue the destructive life style and attitude of their parents. Many young people look at life’s challenges indeed in a different way than their parents. They feel the need for the interpersonal warmth that they have missed when mum and dad were both working overtime for their individual independence. They tend to want to do it differently and start to search for meaning in life. A meaning that they have not been taught at home or in the schools where everything was focused on robotizing the children into a materialistic, rationalized system with its inhumane expectations and devastating nature.
The pollution of our environment, the crudeness of abuse of a financial system in hands of modern criminals against humanity, and our universal vulnerability (as shown so beautifully in the overview from astronauts that brought us a new perspective of MOTHER Earth), together with the collapse of the consumer economic systems shows us the crude devastating reality the hard way. We have lost track of our true inner values and became addicted to our own externalized greed. We have reached the rock bottom of the vertical line, the part were only the having counts and we eliminated our consciousness, our awareness, our identity and even our guild, surrounding ourselves with fake securities, worshiping money above our selves. Until we wake up and find ourselves in panic, in personal chaos and pain. We loose everything we have just to find out that we are shamefully without identity anymore, a robot that does not know how to live LIFE. We are a number in the system and when freed we discover that we do not even know anymore what ethics are, let alone live to it. We have to learn to be human again and interact in community within a universal reality. We have to break out of our imprisonment and find a new harmony with our surrounding.
In my own spiritual experience this illumination is immediate when time has come. The warm touch of God deep inside opens up a river of spiritual energy that cannot be stopped and acts like water through mountains. It does not allow itself to be blocked by obstacles and flows straight up the line of intense awareness. It represents a spiritual birth that lets go of old dependencies and looks at life from the perspective of a true universal identity, God alike. Bottom becomes top with the challenge to interact in a different way than before with one’s surroundings that still resides in the entrapment. Freedom and true equality are contagious and slowly others find their own inner light and fire.
We save ourselves and let humankind travel the “TO BE” line, the feminine line, all the way up to the highest level. We feminize the human globe and identify ourselves as a species that is vulnerable to itself but also able to recognize that when time has come and do something about it. There is absolutely no reason, with all the historic awareness, lessons learned and modern scientific knowledge, that we cannot pass on to the upper layer, the “world above”, the heaven on Earth of true Ethical values, true feminine and masculine equality in its essential differences and create sustainable human progress for ever. It is a new world downside up, flipped over. Many people, including myself, already claim that Sustainocracy is such tipped over approach that is accessible by mere choice. It symbolizes the “TO BE” process also in society, business and education as well as society as a whole. It is an instant switch that makes everyone look differently at our selves and our surroundings acting accordingly. The a complex process of co-creation starts where we build a new society in harmony with our universe and leave the atrocities of millenia of destructive learning behind for ever.
If for thousands of years masculinity has symbolized this learning world through kings and popes, time has come to change our symbols and start living to it. That is why I say that the next pope…..is a woman, without a church. She resides deep inside all of us, man and woman, to finally bring justice and balance in a troubled, adventurous species.
