The Death Throes of Patriarchy

Friday, January 20, 2017 many people were reeling from the inauguration of the new U.S. president, Donald Trump.  On January 21, 2017 for the Women’s March, an estimated 5 million women and men came together worldwide, with over 1 million marching in Washington, D.C. People came in peaceful protest to march, raise their voices for the protection of legislation and policies regarding human rights, women’s rights, immigration and healthcare reform, protection of the environment, support the efforts at Standing Rock, North Dakota and the efforts of the water protectors who are trying to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline that threatens to destroy their only clean water source, and to support LGBTQ rights, racial equality and freedom of religion.

In the week after the Women’s March, Nicholas Kristof, columnist for The New York Times and co-author of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide wrote this important article outlining, Trumps War On Women.

As we are seeing the death throes of patriarchal systems and the shadow side of man’s need to control and oppress the female gender and the unconsciousness of domination, cruelty and lack of regard for the planet, it is becoming very clear that we, as individuals and humanity collectively are being called upon to manifest the qualities that are most needed in the world now, more than ever before.

We must be diligent in shining the Light of compassion, generating peaceful, serene energy in the face of bigotry, unconsciousness, separation and cruelty. We as individuals must transform negative energy into positive energy by being so focused on kindness, healing. love and peace, that negative thoughts and energy will easily be abandoned as we gently bring it into the Light through our intention to heal suffering and fear with hope and by creating a positive vision for our future of our lives and our collective humanity. This requires vigilance in utilizing the tools of tuning into inner peace with slow, deep breathing, relaxation and Calm daily, centering prayer, mindfulness, silence and connecting to a positive support system as we work towards shifting humanity from this realm of the ego to one of unification, higher consciousness, mercy and love.

As the great spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson has said,  “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”

We have much to do, but knowing we are not alone is a huge comfort!” ~Rose



Excerpt from Intro to ‘Awaken, Awaken, The Time Is Now’
In this day and age, we have available a feast of knowledge, wisdom, and access to the teachings and revelations of the greatest minds in the history of the world. When we open the door to knowledge and inspiration, which is at our fingertips, the veils of ignorance, frustration and confusion naturally begin to fade. Each step we take on our journey through life becomes an awakening to deeper meaning and purpose.

Mankind must learn to accept one another, despite our differences. With so much division in our world it seems imperative to consider what we can do as individuals to promote unity and peace.

Let us consider love the highest ideal, the greatest message we can try to embrace and share with all our brothers and sisters of the world. As we become motivated to be of service to others, life is enhanced and we can attain spiritual peace and fulfillment in our lives and in the world.

‘Awaken, Awaken, The Time Is Now’ is a culmination of what I’ve learned after many years of study and my own personal spiritual journey. The intention for this writing is to go beyond boundaries, and what I believe is only a lack of understanding of other belief systems. In my studies, what I have found is that those that are pursuing religion and spirituality are all on a path to God. It may not be the same path, but the goal is the same, union with God. In the spirit, all men are equal.
