I am sorry. For what little it’s worth, I apologize to all women for the ways in which this world have been oriented to essentially cause you suffering from the moment you’re born. Even institutionalized childbirth is a distortion of the beautiful, simple, sacred and natural… merely one chapter in the vast historical dark and dysfunctional narrative that is Man v Woman. I, and all men, have also suffered greatly because of it — though few would likely admit to it, nor realize just how deeply the wound goes for us all.
It’s pretty easy to point fingers and throw insults at the fat, white, sexist, rich, ignorant, stupid politician.
But that’s only one perspective, and a powerful one that grants entry into the club. Bravo.
In every moment we are given the ability and the responsibility to choose to do the right thing… or not. What is “right” is a divine, unattached, momentary locus of you-plus-universal intelligence — not simply what might be culturally or socially acceptable or expected, not what your family, or elders, or peers would expect, not anything but the pure and blessed essential true-ness of this naked moment.
Isn’t it fascinating some of the patterns that exist in our space and time? I think there are plenty of obvious and hidden layers of conflicting and contrasting energies we’re swimming in 24/7, and I think it’s time we establish some new ones.
