GDP 2024: #WomenLifeFreedom

GDP 2024: #WomenLifeFreedom 
first published January 3, 2024
Our 21st century internet information age flows globally. Our globalization teeters between democracy or fascism. We have to be brave to live. 
Some people are now, just waking up to the joys and sorrows of the human condition happening all at once, every day. Some are finally waking up to history—familial, local, national, global—good and bad. People want to know. They even get DNA history. With all the information streaming “we are not alone in this world,” as social humans we long for community. We have to be brave to co-exist in person, real time, living in the moment, in a wild world. Change is a constant. Time keeps on. It's overwhelming if you try to control each heart beat. In our time, change impales upon us to make change in our worldview and relationships. 
Paul Anders/Nasa Earth Rise from the moonview
Our earth is very important. The peace in nature seeks to heal our traumatic wounds. Nature wants humans to handle change, to be happy. Breathe the fresh air after a rain, walk through the forest, watch a sunset, fear can melt off, even for a moment. It’s a healthy stretch for your imagination, clearing the cobwebs. Humans are of nature. 
With the increased destruction of nature, rapidly destoying the earth itself, made by numerous wars on the planet, burning fossil fuel, strip mining, etc., we are too slow to put it together. Our earth's restorative processes adjust dramatically in response. Humans call this climate emergency, climate disaster. Earth's healing properties are getting cutoff. Our human ability for communication with ourselves, with one another, with living things, cutoff. Acts to annihilate nature purposefully, are the most cowardly and contemptuous actions made by men. There's a certain insanity involved. It's like a brain without a body that thinks itself highly intelligent, but in reality its dumber by the nanosecond as sustenance was annihilated. 

Hateful acts cease by a force of forced enlightenment. Humans will always have Karma to pay, when and where they go. If there was only one last man on this earth, in this universe, in this galaxy, who failed to comprehend his relationship with nature, with another, even if he had  not regressed entirely into the depths of evil-ignorance, still, we all would have to keep returning, lifetime after lifetime. Until finally he concluded and acted accordingly with the purpose of radiating love, the golden light for all. 

Every act of kindness, tough love, conversational agreement-disagreement-resolution-growth, holds vast significance. No matter how great or small a gesture, kindness is king, compassion is queen. As witnesses, we testify to the load of work to be done until earth’s graduation day for humans. Humans are in for lifetimes of learning, especially since we keep repeating, over and over, the same cowardly acts upon nature, the metaphor for the feminine aspect. Our earth place is an important kindergarten. It's time to get it together.

This may seem far-fetched, as if ruled by a hate-filled heart is normal. But perpetuating hate perpetuates trauma, it’s a dumb loop. There is beauty in this world. It’s the strength of a functional and loving family, not a perfect family. It’s a thoughtful and considerate neighbor, not a nosy neighbor. It’s the magnificent appreciation for the power of wonder, intelligence, and for the light of beauty without possession of it. All found within unconditional love. 

Even amid our information age, we still possess a spiritual root to life, connected to earth and cosmos. The spiritual root of life seeks unfathomable depths as anchor. The spiritual root of life gives us a loving heart, common sense, a sense of humor and more common sense. 

The next part contains sensitive content. 

Treacherous times require focus. That brief synopsis hardly describes any of the worst treatments of women in the 21st century. Full accounts would fill nations of libraries. Nevertheless, women’s bodies, minds and spirits will never settle for slavery to the impotent, perverted and decrepit patriarchy. Understand this. As the patriarchy expires. 
Don’t normalize tyranny over women. Don’t normalize rape culture and violence against women. There’s plenty of reasons to be courageous, heal your sons and daughters, your grandchildren, your friends. For women, for human rights of all women, we need voices lifted up. We need your voice, with song. We need our spirit lifted with the extraordinary freedom, with the freedom to dance for #WomenLifeFreedom. 
We must protect beauty.
