Wednesday Weekly Wisdoms 026 – Words and Beginnings
More and more I am drawn to consider my use of words. My first spark is when a word jars with me and I question why. Today I want to suggest that we need to look at the word ‘man’ and ‘mankind’. These words are okay when talking about men but, is it right to use these words when talking about women also? I feel the need to use ‘human’ and ‘humankind’ when jointly talking about men and women.
I do not believe I am a feminist per se but I have lived through the heavy masculine led world that has been ego driven rather than a nurturing feminine way of the heart. Also, I am not saying that all men, or all women are this way but from my life experience I am talking about percentages.
Nor am I looking for a female utopia, but all things in life in balance and moderation. Neither does this mean that there isn’t room for passion or quietness; but a knowing that one needs to be balanced, through time, by the other. Allowing ourselves a more gentle way of being with the self and others.
Listen to the love-drenched words of Sojourner Truth, who stood up at a women’s rights convention in 1863 and immortalized her voice because of the truth she dared to share: “Then that little man in black there [pointing to a priest], he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.” Watterson, Meggan. Mary Magdalene Revealed (pp. 24-25). Hay House. Kindle Edition.
In the beginning there was Adam and Eve. It is said that God fashioned Adam from dust. Adam didn’t want to be alone! Eve then arrives to be his companion. Companion - a person you spend a lot of time with https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/companion
So God brought Adam into being and gave him clear instructions, which he disregarded ie the tree. Immediately I see why men are men; because they, through Adam, did not learn the lesson that God sent Adam to earth to learn. That, the answers are not outside of you but within. You can be whole by yourself, without a companion.
We have lived this man made world of striving and pushing and wars and disharmony. Is now the time, is now the new awakening. Is now the time when men can begin to see the light and embrace a different way of being. Can the women engage with the masculine within without having to ‘rule the world’?
There is no hierarchy in the spiritual world. There’s just this circle where the first becomes the last, and the last becomes the first. Watterson, Meggan. Mary Magdalene Revealed (p. 31). Hay House. Kindle Edition.
When we can let go of the Ego, when we can take back control of the self and not let Ego ‘rule’ us, then we can start to find our way back to Love.
My journey to Love has today gifted me with a copy of A Course of Love. When it arrived I flicked it open to page 380, the first page of Chapter 6 – A New Choice. Today we all have a choice in how we live in this world. I am not preaching, I am not saying that everybody has to be this way, but, what I am doing is my life purpose as ‘messenger’ to try to bring the information to a wider audience than myself.
Namaste, the good in me acknowledges the good in you. Much love, Patricia xx
