what’s OUR part in keeping those folks at the top of the hierarchy?!

Further response to the dialogue around taking gurus and business/ sacred sexuality/ spirituality folks’ off of their thrones that they’re so righteously defending.

See also my earlier podcast around ”So what is it that’s keeping our gurus so blind to their privilege… ?!’

The fact that we feel the need to ask an ‘icon’ to be more open, fairer, more inclusive – is giving them our attention, our vital force, our sovereignty – but as much as they all have to come down off their pedestals, WE have to step out of the lower rungs of the hierarchy, and up to meet them in the horizontal, by understanding our divine sovereignty!

Much love to us all in our beautiful transitioning into symbiosis,

So what is it that’s keeping our gurus so blind to their privilege… ?!

There’s a powerful, beautiful ruckus happening in online coaching right now, where some of the big names in the business, spiritual and healing realms are being questioned – coming up with some disturbing responses – and being shot down by their supporters.

So what is it that’s keeping our gurus so blind to their privilege… It’s the same thing that’s keeping us ALL blind to our place of privilege in wherever we are in the hierarchy, so it’s imperative that we ALL look at our behaviour – and change it!

podcast around why all privilege is inherently problematic

How Do We Remove Our Self From The Hierarchy?

The idea of the hierarchy as an injustice is becoming the focus of mainstream, and this marks a powerful moment in realisation for our collective conscious: first, that we are all participating in a construct – and then, that we’re all benefiting from the suffering of other people and things (cultures, animals, nature, the planet).

The beauty of this moment is that we’re not just waking up to this inbuilt, this utterly inherent unfairness, but that many, many of us are ready to take action to change it. We’re not just passively observing and lamenting; we’re able to cognise our place in the dynamic that brought this particular aspect of the unfairness into being – and thus to act to lessen the negative impact, and to augment the positive impact (the connectedness, the mutual respect, the symbiosis between us).

As I discuss in this podcast, removing ourselves from a hierarchy, from structures, from privileges that our lives are steeped in, must be done with myriad steps. Moving into a new, alternative way of interbeing requires a different language, a different approach, a different pace and rhythm altogether. We can’t step directly into it, but we very much CAN step methodically out of the compartmentalised, manipulative, separation, fear-tension-pain dynamic that riddles our very being.

podcast on removing our self from the hierarchy

It’s ironically simple, pleasureful, and obvious how to do, as soon as we set the intention: the real hierarchy – the natural hierarchy of our mind-body-spirit – gives us clear directions where to go, how to proceed. We move forwards organically, spontaneously, intuitively, with our intention held in the core of us.

We’re not so much removing our Self from the hierarchy, but aligning our Self with both our own natural hierarchy, and the hierarchy of nature – which for the most part are horizontal and symbiotic, balanced and harmonious.

The concept of a pyramid hierarchical power dynamic is a one-dimensional model: it eliminates responsibility, locks us into long-term knock-on negative effects, like the disastrous consequences for everyone/ everything through the abuse of resources. And eventually it leads to the atrophying of Life itself through our psychotic, egoistic focus on immediate, surface gratification.

The reality of a fluid sharing of power, resources, energy, support – in contrast – opens up unlimited wealth, pleasure, vitality, energy, resources… because it frees our disconnection into connection – the core of what allows harmony to exist and symbiosis to evolve.

If we have one inherent privilege over nature, it’s our ability to work more consciously and collectively…. to build something ever more beautiful, harmonious, meaningful, pleasureful for all.

All we have to do, is to recognise that TRUE power is our ability in the everymoment to navigate towards the more beautiful, harmonious, meaningful, and pleasureful for all – and away from all things that are not this. THAT is our infinite power, individually and collectively.

Where Do We Go Now

The fact that we all live in this constructed ‘reality’ that is based almost entirely on the privilege of the wealthy, white owner-of-a-phallus – so much so that even ‘god’ is depicted as a powerful, pale-skinned man – this means we’re all bound into not just speaking exclusively his language but giving our entire energetic resource and attention to his model of ‘the world’.

We’re all invested enormously in the genuine (though naive/ small-minded) collective belief that his power is a real authority, can tell us what to think/ how to feel/ when and where to act: it’s ‘the only option’ in a life of transactions and following-the-rest-of-the-flock, whilst wholly ignoring the effects of our ‘forced’ activities on the rest of Life.

This podcast touches on why our Real power – our sovereign state – is profoundly more potential than the patriarchal construct. We’re beginning to wake up to how our connectedness, our inquiring mind, our need for justice for all, our deepening values and ethics… how this is the true force: a force of nature that organically moves into harmonious symbiosis, rather than being a codependent element in a power-hungry artificial machine.

Now

fruit of the everymoment, painting on canvas, 2017

What’s happening right now has never been so multifaceted, so complicated-but-simple, and so hard to digest through the media. Particularly if we’re looking at the world through the filter of mainstream, it’s possible that we’ve never been exposed to such a dumbed-down, skewed, thin sliver of an aperture into reality… whilst our actual reality is rapidly aligning into symbiosis.

Like all of us, I’ve had blessed time to step back from the drama and the smoke and mirrors of ‘normal life’, to be able to see what I and we are doing – as well as what we can easily do much better.

Though I’ve dipped only occasionally into mainstream media – mostly finding it unbearably lacking in groundedness, wisdom or healthy leadership – I’ve noticed more and more censorship of truth around the whole affair.

drawing, 2010

Voices are rising up, solutions and better ways are being shared, but for the greater part, the multitudes are only hearing a self-fulfilling-prophecy of fear-tension-control… and the inevitable very painful consequences.

Here are two longer-than-usual podcasts bringing together a holistic, personal perspective on our times. It feels vitally important that people like myself – who live outside of mainstream thinking and fear-limitations – are heard in these pivotal moments, so we can collectively keep greater perspective.

Global decisions are now being made about everyone’s future, and if they’re being based on dumbed-down, aggressive approaches to the divine complexity of the human mind-body-spirit in symbiosis with this incredible self-regulating planet we live on… then we’re going to essentially be atrophying out of existence.

podcast on Now part 2

On the other hand, many of us are awakening to this forewarning we’re being blessed with, and are already steeped in new studies, practises, growing our own food, getting fresher air into our lungs, moving around more, thinking-acting-being more positive and pro-active.

I have faith that we were already moving away from the destructive, competitive, short-term vision, no-consequences-to-our-actions paradigm, and into a more harmonious relationship with all things.

It remains to be seen however, whether mainstream/ power structures can accept and honour our new conscious evolution. It genuinely appears that mainstream is insisting we all get onboard a raft-of-the-medusa, as it’s flung from wave to wave in increasingly dangerous waters… and a good chunk of our population is clinging on there.

self-evolution painting, 2008

Are they going to educate themselves in time, before the raft disintegrates? Are they going to recognise that there are other ways of treating disease, of approaching health, of creating well-being, which are entirely peaceful and non-drama-and-death-inducing?

I feel strongly positively that part of what what has been unfolding is that there has been an increasing collective movement away from the aggressive medical model – into more holistic approaches to our real health. This in itself has brought the unhealthy aspects of the modern medical approach to the surface: fear, control, tension, pain, symptoms downwards-spiralling out of control – as systems try to claw back stability, and immense bodies of profit try desperately to retain their manipulative grip on peoples’ health sovereignty.

But the truth is spreading virally and organically, just as the virus is. There are facts that can’t be hidden – like exosomes, complex RNA strands, and the mind-blowing differences in statistics… the vastly superior results from homeopathic treatment of pandemics.

One day soon, the majority of humans are going to recognise that we live on a profoundly intelligent planet, and that we are an integral part of that profound intelligence; that there are ways to work in symbiosis with the divine holistic forces all around and within us, rather than warring against them, as if they’re something alien and different to us.

Be alive, be informed, be awake!

Much love and blessings to you,

WE ARE NOT IN A WAR WITH NATURE!

Here’s my latest podcast, on how we are NOT in a war with nature: if anything, we’re entering a phase of accelerating symbiosis, and it might seem like we can keep fighting against our bodies, combating disease, being in a perpetual struggle versus natural Life – but we can’t.

And this is the moment where we learn that – for some the hard way, but for many of us, in a beautifully synchronising, alchemical shift.

I’ll be in touch again soon with more thoughts and solutions around the current world situation…

Blessings and love to you,

What Can We Do About All This FEAR?

These are genuinely unprecedented times: we’ve never been in this state of having us all so aware of the same thing at the same time; absorbed in and by it. So what can we do with all the adrenaline, over-stimulation and projection of negative scenarios and emotions that it’s bringing up for so many of us? Rather than it threatening to drown the world, surely there’s another option?

In this podcast I’ll talk about the fear (the psychological and emotional) aspect of this virus, prompted by Sama Morningstar’s brilliant blog on how disproportionate fear can be rooted in unresolved trauma. I’m adding to this discourse, suggesting that we’re all so accustomed to being in a high-tension state of depressed, atrophied ‘reality’ – that doomsday really is a relatively short step from our everyday.

During this lock-down time, we have the perfect container to allow fears to arise and to transform them. As the air clears of smog and our avalanche lifestyles slow to a gentle, rhythmic drip, our tensions can unfold in a way that was never possible when we were in the usual grind.

Naturally, effortlessly, our thoughts and inquiries can finally fully form, and so be let go of. We can begin, collectively, to make more conscious decisions about how we want to do this thing we’re doing on planet earth. Now we’re slowed down sufficiently, we can be more aware, feel more, get in tune with what needs to be done, rather than being in this perpetual hamster wheel, just because everyone else is… We can be aware of other options, perspectives, realities.

In my understanding and embodied wisdom, we have a clear choice right now: Fear or Freedom.

So much blessed love and beauty to you today,
