How Women Hold the Real Answers to the World’s Crises

February 17, 2012 at 17:04 2 comments

The current condition of the planet is, at the very least, dire. At worse, some may argue that the human race are at the brink of destruction. None of this happened overnight. The world economic crisis was already on the cards long before the financial collapse of 2008. Countries like Greece are being slaughtered by the corporations via their paid servants, politicians and mass media. The consequences are massive levels of poverty, unemployment and disenfranchisement.

After 4,000 years of male dominated society, it is all too clear that patriarchal rule is a failed experiment. I am not suggesting that matriarchy has all the answers either. Nonetheless, there is much that can be learnt from both ancient history where matriarchy was predominant as well as from Nature. Nature, follows universal principles that lead to Natural Law. For the past 4,000 years, human society has been striving to move away from nature in order to build community. This process was called ‘civilisation’. There is a reciprocal correlation between civilisation and nature. The more that society became civilised, the further removed it was from nature.

In the classical languages such as Latin, Greek, Arabic and even French, the words ‘Cosmos’ ‘Nature’ and ‘Earth’ are given the feminine gender and often referred to as  ‘Mother Cosmos’, ‘Mother Nature’ and ‘Mother Earth’. And, for good reason. Mother Cosmos gave birth to all that is manifest in the Cosmos. Mother Nature gave birth to Natural Law. Mother Earth gives birth to all provisions  (with the notable exception of light from the Sun) required by humans and other sentient beings to live. The Mothers nourish, nurture and give the vital ingredients for the growth of their children. After a certain time of undergoing this process of creativity within the womb of the Mothers, birth takes place. This process is known by Taoists as the ‘Yin’ process.

The yin represents the feminine energy, whilst the yang represents the masculine. The yin is symbolic of the unseen process of creativity. The yang symbolises the manifestator and the manifestation, i.e.  Creator and the Creation. Whilst the yang is what is seen, it only represents a very tiny fraction of the balance between itself and the yin. For example, in the process of human procreation, a man may have sex and impregnate a woman in matter of minutes or even seconds. This represents the yang element. The zygote, which then becomes an embryo is nourished, nurtured and receives life force comes through its mother over a duration of 40 weeks. This period of time is the yin period and it becomes the yang at childbirth.

The role played during this time by the masculine is minimal. After birth, the mother continues the process of feeding, nourishing and nurturing the child. She collaborates with the father to raise the child for a certain period of time. In Nature, the father becomes a protector of the mother and child as well as the provider of food, water and shelter to the nursing mother.

The principles of nurturing, protection and collaboration are imbued in the cells and the genetic coding of women. Competition is more prevalent in men and is as a by-product of them moving away from their own nature. Society has been falsely manipulated into believing that permanent competition is a good thing and that survival of the fittest will decide on who deserves to have it all. After all, winner takes it all, right? Wrong. According to the work of eminent evolution biologist, Dr Elisabet Sahtouris, competition is present in nature at the earliest stages of its development. For example, think of how lion cubs play fight. However, as the species matures, it becomes much more collaborative and co-operative. In order to maintain survival of the lion pride, for example, the lionesses will often hunt in packs to have a joint feast. Unlike the human species, it will kill according to how much they need to eat.

In order to rebuild a society that is co-operative and collaborative and seeks to nurture all, we need consider many options. However, there needs to be a total paradigm shift from patriarchal, survival of the fittest mentality as a starting point. Women who are already in places of power need to consider the incredible gift they have within and how they can tap into such innate abilities to begin the transformation process. Women like Lisa Clapier of the Occupy Wall Street Movement have demonstrated that the point of protesting is not about ‘Us against Them’, but the corporation between all humans in a joint purpose of growth and evolution. Women like Mother Teresa created teams of women whose service was to a higher purpose than the profit-motive. The results of her work speak for themselves.

I am a man. I do not have all the answers, but I do know where the majority of the answers to our greatest questions will come from. It is from women. This article is not a case against men. It is a case for a re-evaluation and redressing the power wielded and given by the two genders of the same species. Should humanity continue its route to control, manipulation, deceit and greed, an ultimate disaster will not be such a remote possibility. Should humanity shake itself up and wake itself up, then perhaps it will be given an opportunity to move away from survival alone in order to thrive and flourish. Will we really allow ourselves to forget that without the Mothers, we cannot exist?

Love and gratitude,

    Your words resonate so deeply with me Harun!

    As a Womb Wellness Coach & Sound Healer, my aim is to support women & men in reconnecting to the wisdom of the womb within (or the one within which we were nurtured & now live).

    What you have said here, so eloquently & yet so simply, is so important for us as both individuals & as a collective. We need to re-evaluate how we’re living our lives. Finding our way back into balance between the feminine & masculine is so important as I truly believe we have lost our way…well we lost our way thousands of years ago & the way we live in the present is all that many of us have ever known!

    Thank you for sharing these words!

    Light, love & blessings,
    Renee x
