So much emotion : today’s reflections

I was doubled over in grief and relief today when I heard the verdict for the officer who killed George Floyd and the other officers who stood by doing nothing to help a man in such a terrible situation… I was crying last night seeing the mother of his young daughter speaking at a press conference.. Once a life is taken it is gone and so many lives have been lost, not only of the indigenous and people of colour but those overrun by the Nazis and others crazed by out of control psychotic forces in life. I thought today of all those who have lost their lives at the hands of the law via the avenue of ‘black deaths in custody’ here in Australia where there was no video to witness the truth of what happened and of all the families of indigenous Australians who lost their loved ones and will never see such justice.. the grief just flowed out of me hearing and thinking about all of this today.

Hopefully this old world order of abuse and power over will end one day, hopefully we will see a time when it is not okay to abuse someone or exert power over them purely out of fear or the mistaken belief in supremacy or dominance… Anyone who has ever been labelled as inferior in any way and been punished for it or suffered as a result of it at the hands of abusers will resonate with what is occurring at the moment.

Seeing that footage of the office leaning on the neck of George Floyd I could not help but think of the book The Maiden King by Marion Woodman and Robert Bly in which they talk about the pin in the neck in a Russian fairytale which metaphorically expresses what it is to cut off ones connection to the wild, intuitive and primal. This image also shows a kind of dominance that is disconnected from any form of empathic regard for another person as a brother or sister of spirit deserving of respect, fair treatment and love.

I could not stay silent about what all of this evoked in me today… I have wished for a world for so long in which this kind of treatment is not excusable.. Those who have been overpowered in any kind of way by white supremist patriarchy, such as the mentally ill, women, the disabled or people of colour represent the feminine force that now needs to be honoured and will no longer allow such domination… The dark situation which can give rise to the demonising, killing off or punishment of those who do not deserve it needs to change and I believe it is changing… .There is just too much outrage at the moment from the bulk of the population and leaders such as Donald Trump who continue to spout inflammatory rhetoric in the face of such valid protest purely to serve a re-election agenda need to be shown through such majority vote that their narcissistic agenda is doomed… The dark power repressive patriarchy and materialism has exerted over spiritual authenticity and truth has to transform now… I believe the current Saturn Pluto Jupiter conjunction shows that an old order is falling a new one arising and such dramatic changes sadly often do call for very dark, intense passages of destruction and recreation.. The dark feminine often appears in dreams as a black man or woman come to lead the seeker to truth, we cannot deny our indigenous roots, we are part of the earths body and can not just continue rape, pillage, disrespect or profit from it by showing lack of respect to the foundation…The God Pan is presiding over this period which has seen a global pandemic and uprising of crazed protest that has a purpositive function.. We must heed the call and let our collective grief show us what needs to die so that a new and more loving authentic world order can arise.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
