Way back in around 2003 I was at a party with some friends, and some people I didn't know. About 20 of us were sitting on the floor by the fire in a sort of circle. Shelley, a dear friend at the time, (now no longer in the physical realm) who was a wonderful wordsmith, asked one of her famous questions that always caused a stir, and engaged people in worthwhile conversation.
“what would you do to make the world a better place” she asked everyone…
“come on Jonesy” she said when it was my turn, “what would you do?”. I’d already decided I’d speak my truth, despite my expectations of predictable reactions.
“put women in charge”, I said.
It's sad but true, that the most popular definition of ‘success’ to most men is money or power. Apply this male delusion globally and put men in charge, and we get what we have, a world motivated by money and power, and suppression of women. How perfectly wrong can it be!
All this I have known for many years but not quite known what to do about it. Then over a period of twenty years or so studying Nature and the incredible work of Viktor Schauberger, I learnt about patterns, Phi, the Fibonacci Series and the balance of energies in Nature. And I learnt that Nature’s ‘balance’ of positive creative processes is not 50/50, it's always tipped in the favour of yin (female) energy - in the ratio of Phi, roughly 60% Yin (female) and 40% Yang (male) energies.
Over many years, I've learnt about ancient matriarchal societies that lasted thousands of years without famine or war , I thought of the general tendencies of women and men and, well, it just seems obvious really.
