She gives birth to manifest being
Nursing him tenderly at Her breast
She in play consumes Her child.
The world dissolves instantly
Upon touching Her white teeth
Attaining the realization of Her brilliant
And translucent void."
In essence, the formless and infinite Ocean of no-thing takes form via the desire (Eros) to create which also brings forth the vibrations of the universe (i.e., the Word). This has scientific backing in physics experiments where a photon behaves more like a wave when a scientist is not looking and a particle when he is (see the Holographic Universe by Talbot). Thus, your eyes take the light waves of this screen into your brain and creates an image. According to neurologist Karl Pribram, these waves are analyzed by the brain by a form of Calculus called Fourier Transforms and converted into an image. Hence, the image of this screen is not "out there" it is in your head as are the feeling of fingers moving across the keyboard. The image of the screen isn't even in the front of your head, close to your eyes. It's in the back of your head! The world is not "out there". It is "in here and back there."
Think for a moment about the ramifications of this. There is a place in which you and this moment exist eternally Now. By eternal Now we are saying that all points past, present and future are Now. Furthermore, in your deepest nudity you are void and without form. In this state you are also infinite. Eternal life does not commence after you die. It is within you eternally here and now for at some point you have never been born and hence cannot die (see video of the teaching of Meister Eckhart, a Christian mystic of the 14th century). The reason why the suppression of this knowledge, which includes the suppression of the power of women, is happening to this day through the enslavement of people throughout the world (the labor classes) is to keep people under the thumb of the rulers of this world. When the Bible states that Man shall rule over Woman in Genesis, then it is speaking to the government, the corporations and even we who are suppressing the potentials inherent in every Psyche or Soul, including our own. Every time that we keep our mouths shut because of the fear of government or corporate retaliation, the curse on Eve is being reenacted. Could it be time to end this curse?
In ancient times, a woman's body served as a metaphor for the process of birth, maintenance and death (return to the Unmanifest). This means you have to die in order to be born. Just as you were born when you grew to the point that you could survive externally from the uterus, you need to outgrow the world you think is real now in order to be born into a more enlightened world. You have to die to the safety of the civilized womb that now contains you and emerge into another order of being. In other words, you have to let go of your conditioning to what you think the world is and who you are.
This is not an easy task. Our way of life has been going along for the past 6 to 7,000 years hence the conditioning is strong and we resist the death necessary for the new unfolding. Why? The reason is because we are afraid of letting go to our selves, which means we also fear change. Yet, in order for a sperm to take part in becoming a new human, he must die to the egg and the egg must die to being an egg. Death is necessary for the new to unfold. Ring out the old; bring forth the new! On a psychological or spiritual level, this death is reflected in the man and woman losing all sense of their self during an intense orgasmic moment.
It is this death that we are afraid to face. Even within the 99% movement there appears to be many that just want the politicians and corporations to behave themselves. Not going to happen! Why? Nothing will change because the pattern is well entrenched through several centuries of conditioning. WE need to change from the inside out.
We need deep change. We can't afford to just go through the same rigamaroll. It was way too easy for the movements of the 60's to quiet down which brought forth the more placid 70's, 80's and 90's. In essence we went from John Lennon's nudity and Pink Floyd's "The Wall" to Madonna's "Material Girl." Similarly, India went from Ghandi's deep sense of self-sufficiency in community to a nation that in many ways looks like the US, Britain, and other European giants. Why they even have the atomic bombs and now missiles to drop them on Bejing.
Yet, there is hope. There is a recording on YouTube that says, "Those dirty "f'n' hippies were right" (see links below). And, they were. Love is the key. As the Rolling Stones say in "Gimme Shelter," "Rape and Murder, it's just a kiss away! (also in the links)"
Pucker your lips for it's up to us to kiss away. We can't count on politicians and corporate tyrants to kiss anything away. Why? It is because they are locked into the mentality of rape and murder which is founded on a false sense of power. That false sense of power is power over others and over the world. However, true power is not in power over others. The power is within our self. It is this internal power that they don't want us to tap into. This is the reason the Feminine is suppressed. The Feminine reflects the unborn potential lying in wait for Her lover who will initiate the unfolding of peace within ourselves and in the world. It is not in a politician, a spiritual movement, or a new philosophy that we need. We need YOU to kindle the fires of your Truth, your Self! It is in those fires of love that new life will unfold. Yet, as Snow White teaches, you must wake up from the poisonous apple of vanity.
It is we that need to take responsibility for kindling the new world from the Womb of our Souls. Nor can we have another revolution such as the French revolution in the late 1700's. We know the historical outcome of that revolution. It all started when women began to riot due to not being able to feed their family. Unfortunately, Napoleon arose to provide another new boss that was the same as the old. It's the same with the American Revolution that spit the British Empire out of the States and that became THE Empire of the 20th century. Meet the new boss, same as the old (the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again" also in the references).
