Patricia also promotes the power of stories online, writing:
Stories are how we teach, how we learn, how we share our deepest selves and try on risks safely. Stories are how we express visions in ways that help others to see what is possible and express longings for what seems impossible. This is why sharing your stories, visions, and creativity is so vital.
me, all of us, human and more-than-human, are the voice of I-Am. We
live the story, we share the story, we co-create the story. We are
the Word made flesh. I would take Patricia remarkable words and say
it is our stories that become flesh. Thus, the story inherent in
Western Civilization has led to an alienated lot of people while
destroying the natural lands upon which we live. Isn't it
interesting that Nature has two primary meanings, Essence and the
Wild, which includes this planet, Her father, the sun, and Her
Mother, the Universe? We can attune our ears to the story Mother
Earth is telling us before our make-believe swallows us whole.
The story we tell ourselves about Nature is the story we tell ourselves about our Self. As an egg becomes a fetus becomes a baby becomes a reader and a writer, Nature has become us and we have projected ourselves onto Her. Thus, this planet is becoming a wasteland in the image of our busy corporately-conditioned minds via pollution, over grazing and over building. Yet, deep inside, if we go deeply into the matter composing our bodies, we will find atoms existing in the same relationship as stars and planets to intergalactic space. Remember this as you look into the nighttime skies. Look through the veil of pollution into the Truth above, below, and within you--the Truth that will, indeed, set you free. Awaken to the truth that your conditioning by education, the need to make a "buck," and the supremacy of Man, are the pollutants that keep you from seeing into your depths?
What Patricia promises us is the opportunity to co-create a new story and a new planet. Thus it is said that a new Earth shall arise. This new Earth will manifest when a new "Adamah" arises, one in which Eve is no longer subsidiary to Adam. This entails more than just woman not being subsidiary to man, but the Soul, the Deeper Consciousness (of the body and of the Earth) not being subsidiary to the ego, the rational mind. While a man may take the "lead" when dancing with a woman, his sensitivity would be to attend to her nonverbal cues in identifying where she wishes to go. It is this subtle voice that ultimately leads. It is the potential within her womb that offers him posterity. Being the power of both birth and death, she may indeed wind up presenting us with a new life or a stinging horrid death.
Both are potentials of the story. And, alas, it is only through the portal of death, the return to the Primordial Womb of Nature, that the resurrection of the New is able to emerge. Thus the egg devours sperm, integrating him into herself while taking on his genes, and begins to take form as new life. The question we need to ask ourselves is: "Dare we allow our conditioned lives which comprise the old story to be devoured so the new can emerge?" Knowing the power of the Female, one realizes death is the only portal to birth. The Male's erection must be spent in surrender to the darkness of the unknown within the womb. The Goddess as Mother, Sustainer, and Fate are not three Goddesses. Thus, metaphorically reflecting the process, men emerge from Woman head first and return head first in marriage, sex and death.
