Whilst some accusations have a sound basis, the climate of judgement is toxic for all of us. It is a time of cleansing, of shedding skins, of the muggy old skin being removed by the exfoliating brush of public exposure. There is no easy way out of this – I just wish it would be fast-tracked and we could start again with a clean slate – that our heroes were real heroes – and our enemies real enemies – not this ongoing murkiness. Nobody can hide any more in this.

Collectively, we all need to bring conscious awareness to the squalid environment we find ourselves in. It is only by realising that the media is owned by corporations, and carries an agenda, that we can start to unravel the system, and our place in it. We can support the independent voices, and allow them expression. We can bring a new consciousness to the media and help it see its responsibility to honour all beings as sacred.

The feminine archetype is still hurting. And we need to address this. Conscious men need to protect our women. Yet the archetype goes further than man or woman – as it is a core energetic frequency within nature, within both men and women. Archetypes are kernels of the human story. They are signposts or wayshowers that narrate the essential masculine and feminine forces of our nature.

What lies within this deep feminine wounding that seeks to lash out at men? The feminine is the source of creation and creativity. It cannot be suppressed endlessly. Its power which is endless must be recognised, acknowledged and honoured by all. If we cannot honour the feminine, she will bite back. She is our keeper, our sacred mother, our source.

The sacred masculine is our protector.

Both energies synergise.

If you suppress one, the harmony and balance of nature if broken. Mother Nature will have to find a way to redress this imbalance. And Gaia will find a way.

What is a healthy masculine energy?

A healthy masculine knows that is his Source is sacred. He doesn’t need to force himself to act in any way, as he knows that he would never cut off his Source. He is simply wise. He has the warrior spirit in him to protect those weaker than himself – he acts as their custodian – not in any way superior – just simply doing his service, his sacred duty. His nature is only destructive when there are no rules in place, no boundaries. The wild man needs boundaries to stem his flow of energy, otherwise he will savage nature.

The healthy masculine stands alone with his Source and honors the sacred feminine not because he has to – or because rules bound him to an ethical code – simply because he is connected to himself.

An unhealthy masculine energy is disconnected from his nature. He is suffering because he doesn’t know who he is. A healthy masculine is a warrior for peace.

A healthy masculine honours his natural inclinations – yet he doesn’t let himself be controlled by them. His first instinct is to stand up in his power to protect.

Sexually, his innate drive is passionate, expressive, outward. The healthy masculine expresses this sacred energy unreservedly. He knows that his desire is a calling – and he does not play games with it. His sexuality is a sacred part of his being.

When he chooses to suppress his needs, he feels ashamed. When he uses another, he has removed himself from his role as protector. He has fallen into purely selfish acts through ignorance and a lack of consciousness. The masculine simply forgot who he was and what his place in the world was.

It’s time for the masculine to make peace with the feminine – and remember who he is.

That’s when men become men, proud and honourable, respectful of themselves, each other, and respectful of their women.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/erprofe/4724824314Antoine de Saint-Exupéry words echo in my heart – “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”

Our history and tradition has placed a demand of women to be the fountain of life as well as the fountain of love, comfort, support and sexual pleasure.

In turn, men have traditionally controlled the external machinery of societies, science and education, government, finance, law, military and the like.

Our judicial systems have been patriarchal and the overarching theme has been male dominance over women and society at large. Property, political leadership and moral authority have been controlled by men.

If we look back nearly 3500 years, Hatshepsut ruled as female pharaoh of Egypt for 20 years. Apparently, her nephew Thutmose III destroyed and suppressed her memory until a record of her was recently discovered and publicised by archaeologists.

Androcracy has been the chosen form of government, in which rulers have been men, in every society. There have gradually been more exceptions to this rule with the likes of Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, Golda Meir, Park Geun-hye, Sirimavo Bandaranaike, Benazir Bhutto and Aung San Suu Kyi. Nowadays, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has risen to the rank of one of the most powerful leaders in the world.

These leaders have not often been celebrated for their femininity – Thatcher was known as Britain’s “Iron Lady” whereas David Ben-Gurion apparently described Golda Meir as “the only man” in his cabinet.

The tradition of misogyny – of suppressing and demeaning the feminine – is now being paid back via retribution. The payback is to suppress the masculine.
What traditionally has been revered, honoured and celebrated in men is now being shamed. This misandry is seen in the now-current trend of naming and shaming powerful men like Morgan Freeman.

Freeman, 80, feels that his life work is “at risk of being undermined” having been accused of sexual harassment:

“All victims of assault and harassment deserve to be heard. And we need to listen to them. But it is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humour.”

We have to understand that the world was a different place in the 1930s when Freeman was born and stop judging men according to modern standards. A dirty old man he may be, but an abuser I’m not so sure. Freeman seems to me like a talented man who rose to fame much later in life and now has a twinkle in his eyes!

And it would be remiss not to mention, Freeman is worth $200 million!

I think it’s going beyond the pale that a man who may even be talking to women inappropriately is now being exposed as an abuser.

Not every cringe-worthy act should be deemed a crime.
If we decide that every time a man approaches a woman with interest, or flirts with a woman, it is a crime, then what kind of society will result?

A boring one for sure. And a whole lot of miserable celibate people. Is this what we want?

You could even call Freeman a pest. Yet a man who has risen to the highest rungs of Hollywood, is unlikely to have avoided getting a big ego – given out and received numerous wanted and unwanted advances from women, sexual and otherwise. The moment anyone is in the public eye, our fame-centric, fame-obsessed society becomes ravenous, feeding off every quirk.

The complaints against Freeman seem particularly petty though. There is a young Instagram female empowerment generation claiming super-hero powers – and now we have a group of whining whingers claiming to be victims.

Society is actually breaking down because of how men are being portrayed and because men are being demeaned for talking to women.

A compliment is not sexual assault. A bad joke is not sexual abuse.
Since when was a mere wink creepy?

Awkward is not sinful.

These sexual assault police are now crying “rape” at every man in power. It’s too much.

Let’s rewind a little. Sexuality is a natural inclination, not “wrong” or “bad” as in the Calvinistic tradition. How can a natural inclination be moralised?

Successful people generally have a powerful sex drive. How else could they succeed without this force propelling them forward? And they are rewarded for this creative drive.

Sex is deemed a human need (not a choice or desire) – not a mere whim – or a game. Both sexes have an innate sexual need. This is not shameful, wrong, bad or ugly.

No such thing exists as “using another for sex” – sex is innately co-creative, unless it’s rape or sexual abuse.

I continue to hear of men being derided for “using women for sex” – the familiar perpetrator-victim story.

What about those who are being falsely accused in this witch hunt?

When will they come for me?’

Is it fair to make people guilty before they are allowed to defend themselves? Asking for proof or evidence does not make you an apologist for abuse.

Hashtag campaigns like “IBelieveHer” are problematic as they place all the credibility in the hands of the accuser. It’s not clear who the real victim is.

It is easy to accuse. The accuser can make any allegation with no accountability. The social media court then decides based on public mood swings. These accusations stick in the public view, and even if a person is innocent, they will never be welcomed back without suspicion.

Tarnished by the brush of an accusation is like paying a price without having stood trial.

Reportedly fired for improper conduct, American author, voice actor, and radio personality, Garrison Keillor’s admission is compelling:

“I put my hand on a woman’s bare back. I meant to pat her back after she told me about her unhappiness and her shirt was open and my hand went up it about six inches. She recoiled. I apologized,”

Keillor wrote in an email to the Minnesota Star Tribune in response to the allegation. “I sent her an email of apology later and she replied that she had forgiven me and not to think about it. We were friends. We continued to be friendly right up until her lawyer called.”

Accusation is not guilt. It’s prudent to reserve judgement where possible until the weight of claims becomes impossible to ignore (as with Bill Cosby, and Harvey Weinstein).

When a due process is followed and criminal charges are laid (for instance in the case of Roman Polanski), the aftermath continues decades later even though he pleaded guilty and went to prison for his crimes. Now, most people agree that even consensual statutory rape is amoral, yet Polanski served months under house arrest and 42 days in prison before fleeing to France.

Polanski is a Holocaust survivor, who spent six years of his childhood (aged 6-12) mostly alone evading Nazi death marches and then, post-Holocaust, achieved personal success as a film director. In 1969, he lost his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, the love of his young life, who was murdered horrifically by the Manson Family.

It’s quite hard to understand why so much has been said about Polanski. We seem to have lost our moral compass. Whilst I don’t condone his actions in any way, it’s time to forgive. A homeless childhood evading Nazi persecution spent mostly on the run and alone is hardly a foundation for psychological health, but rather psychological tragedy.

A little compassion goes a long way. As Carl Jung writes:
 “There is no coming to consciousness without pain.”

I entered into a very unhealthy relationship when I was in India, when I was like a slave to an Indian woman, and she was my Master. It was only a short few days, yet still deeply disturbed me. I realised I had a lot of healing to do to understand myself, understand woman and take charge of my manliness, masculine energy.

When one is slave, one loses one’s self-esteem. It impacts deeply our identity, how we feel about ourselves, how we view who we are. Enslavement is about control and pushing people down, so you may feel you steal their energy, feel you are above, greater. The more you enslave others, you more you enslave yourself, as really you are acting out of deep-seated fears. The fear is controlling you. The fear is what speaks to your mind and makes you bring others down. It is usually sourced in both sadism and masochism.

Yet always both slave and master have lessons to learn. The narcissist and the empath both have to learn how to grow, how to see themselves and others in a mature, adult way. It is not an easy path.

The empath must learn not to unconditionally accept being demeaned, lowered…

Feminine men get pushed over, ignored, and that is what I have faced, too, in the “business world” too – being ignored or pushed to the back of the line.

There is growth and healing in my self-worth and masculinity.

Therein lies the truth for you too.

Wherever I go, I find superficiality, online I get approached all the time by people with an agenda to sell me something, convince me to buy from them.

On social media, there are many as well with an agenda, to sell you something. Some promote spirituality, and then send you hard sales messages.

There is an avante-gard  concept of manifesting consciously, and the law of attraction that is desperate. What it means is that chasing something may chase it away. Attraction is not something that can be “forced” or manipulated. It flows naturally. In chemistry, “positive” attracts “negative” forces.

As energetic beings, we are always affecting our environment, as it affects us, spontaneously.
Sometimes we get what we thought we wanted, only to realise it does not bring us joy, nor is it really heart-fulfilling.
Like you want a relationship, but then you get one, and you’re miserable.
And then it’s like – back to the drawing board!
There is always conscious and unconscious creation. Since we are souls having a human experience, the mind is the alchemy of soul and body – the body is genetically predisposed via its ancestral inheritance. Manifesting is always going to have these aspects at play – what does the soul want? What does the body want or need? Why?
What will serve the soul lessons?
Is the desire aligned to the soul?

How to manifest:

Focus on what you want.

Believe it will come.

Think about it as if it is already here.

Move towards it as if it is already complete.

Take on the shape and form of that which you desire.

Become that which you desire and you will have all of this automatically.
