January 18th, I wrote a post called, “A New Commercial by Gillette: The Best a Man Can Be.”
I thought it was interesting that a company such as Gillette was encouraging men to act higher dimensionally and I was happy to post this, as well as several articles pointing out the pros and cons of this ad.
A few days later I received an email asking me to be conscious of toxic feminism.
I had not heard these two words together and I was curious what this was.
I sat still for several hours, listening to the higher realms in my heart, and contemplating with my mind. What was I missing?
Here is my understanding:
Anything toxic is not of love, feminine and/or masculine.
Anything toxic is connected to our core issues and/or the old belief systems.
As systems busters, my understanding is we are here to face into our own discomfort, and change and/or eliminate thought patterns that don’t work.
When we can forgive ourselves for what hasn’t worked, we free our self to create the New from a place of balance, with equal Love for the masculine and feminine.
Another word in the email was, victim, but how does victim fit into this discussion about toxicity?
Here are my thoughts on this:
We’ve lived on a planet for thousands of years where there’s been no peace.
With us constantly at war, from discord between families, friends, and neighbours to countries and nations, there’s been lack of harmony on Earth going back centuries.
This is a toxic way to live, and just as my online thesaurus describes this word, it can be deadly, dangerous, harmful, injurious, and pernicious.
From here I came to see we are victims of the toxic thought patterns — the beliefs in bigotry, hatred, limitation and control — that create war, pitting human against human.
From the lack of self-love and self-worth to the toxic ways we treat our self and others, we are the product, the victims of the over-arching old belief that “God is punishing.”
A few days after I posted the Gillette ad, Suzanne posted an ad by the CEO of Égard Watch Company.
In it were some eye-opening statistics illustrating masculine protective roles, heroism, and diligence, but also something else:
93% workplace accidents are men
97% of war fatalities are men
79% of all homicide victims are men
nearly half of fathers without any visitation rights still financially support their children
80% of all suicide victims are men
75% of single homeless people are men
Are these statistics connected to the old belief system that “God is punishing”?
Do they illustrate the old thought patterns of lack of self-love and self-worth connected to male and female ways of being?
From my understanding until we equally forgive our masculine and feminine aspects within, we’ll be stuck in the cycle of war, accidents, homicide, abandonment, disappointment, suicide, and separation. These are the old beliefs of lack of self-love and self-worth.
I want to be super-vigilant and master every emotion, thought and action, and especially conscious of victim mentality, the toxicity of the old beliefs.
How do we come to balance?
From my understanding when we forgive ourselves for not experiencing and expressing ourselves as Divine — every emotion, thought and action — we free our self to truly know self-Love and self-worth.
Non-judgement of every thought, emotion, and action is compassion and a way to balance.
Along with forgiveness and non-judgement of everything, our gratitude for the entire journey and joy for sacred purpose creates a blissful state of being.
We can create our New World, our Nova Earth, from that place of balance within.
As within, so without.
Gender equality is our Love for the male and female aspects within, and that creates harmony in our without, in our outer reality.
There is simply ecstasy, bliss, harmony, balance.
What else can be done to resolve this situation? We can invoke.
I invoke the Mother, Her Infinite Grace,
and the Universal Law of Transformation
for that perfect equal BALANCE of Love for
our masculine and feminine aspects within,
for gender equality, and for the creation of societies
where we really, truly value each other.
