Until one is committed, there is hesitancy………

Healing the Gender Issue

Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (& creation) there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans-the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. Whatever you can do or dream, you can begin. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.’  Goethe

ImageI believe that in order to create balance and harmony in the world, men and women need to unite and fall in love more deeply than ever before. By healing our own wounds, particularly in our intimate relationships, we are creating the vibration that will help to heal our planetary pain of masculine and feminine, of earth and fire, of sadness and rage. The giving and the receiving.

We take so much from the earth in her passivity to give. Does man take too much from woman in her passive roles? Does the woman give too much and then retaliate in anger and pain at the abuse she feels. Will the earth create the angry fire that will burn our homes, will her waters rise in order to cleanse the wounds we are creating on her and will her breath blow so fiercely that we will not stomach the stench and putridness of the deep disgust that has manifested in her stomach, creating black cancerous growths that spew forth and expand in our own cells and bodies, ridding her of the need to provide more and more for her ungrateful offspring?

    In order to make a commitment to the earth, we now need to make a commitment to each other. To relationships and to creating more harmony amongst the people we live with.

I wonder how many of us have really felt the freedom of commitment? If we put ourselves whole-heartedly in to what we are doing, into our dance, our relationships, our work. We make a huge difference in our own lives and in that of others. So maybe we hold back, afraid that there may be something better around the corner. Maybe we are too afraid that we may make the ‘wrong’ choice.

There are not really wrong choices, unless we choose to feel negative about situations, unless we choose to make them that way, once we are on our path, it is the right one and we will never know what it entails fully unless we journey along it, creating more of that path along the way. We create our own paths; they are not made for us. That is the beautiful mystery of life, the ‘not knowing’. And it can make us shrink through fear, or it can make us come alive like a fascinated child, eager to discover more, eager to embrace life and its magic!

If you could commit more fully to one thing today, what would it be? Notice how that makes you feel.
