Men, the way we treat women shows how we think and feel about the Creator and ourselves.
It’s hard to imagine that someone can hate a person who saved their life. We hear so many stories about organ donor recipients who keep in touch with the family of the organ donor out of immense gratitude. We hear other stories about the heroic efforts of a police officer, or brave civilian who saved the life of someone. There is usually a touching reunion that takes place between the survivor and the hero. We hear of combat veterans who continue lifelong bonds that are beyond words due to saving one another’s lives in battlefields that only the veterans truly understand.
Apart from sociopaths, relationships at the most intimate level is what we all crave. Everyone wants an intimacy that is beyond words, with a knowing that our heart and the heart of another is connected. If we are blessed to have such a relationship, how could we possibly hate it? More importantly, since we all have this relationship, why do some hate it and everything that reflects it?
Yes, you read correctly, we all have this relationship. We have life, and that is because of a life-giver, a woman, our mothers. And yes, some men hate women. The hatred manifests in many forms, from physical violence, to more subtle forms of violence equally filled with hate, such as women earning less in wages for the same work as men. Regardless how this hatred manifests, it must be addressed and eradicated from the thought systems of humanity for humanity to become fully humane.
Men, we must look within our hearts to remember our manhood; but we have to look towards women to remember our humanity. The sacred life-givers, the women were the first to lay down their lives for us, thus they are the first warriors. They never promised they would do it, they just did it, and so their courage cannot be questioned. Men, we have been afforded an opportunity to utilize the gifts waiting to be birthed from us, only because of the warriors who birthed us. Men, the way we treat women shows how we think and feel about the Creator and ourselves. Far too many men demonstrate hate towards the Creator, life, and themselves by disrespecting, using, and abusing women. Any thoughts, feelings, or actions of hatred towards or about women are literally a hatred for life.
Our birthrights are given to us through The Sacred Rite of Birth. The Sacred Rite of Birth is a ceremony that all women have been charged to lead. Until this ceremony and the leaders of this ceremony are honored, we as men not only negate our manhood and warriorship, we’ve turned our backs on our humanity and God.
Men, turn back to the warriorship that’s within your hearts, and remember the great love that carried you for nine months. Even if you never saw your mother after your birth, is not the moment of your birth, where your mother came so close to death for you to have life, enough to honor her and all other life-givers for the rest of your life?
Within the nine month ceremony of The Sacred Rite of Birth, men who abuse women knew a truth that they forgot: You are a miracle, blessing, and gift. This truth was known by you when you were curled up within your mother’s womb with your ear gently pressed against your heart as you listened to your holy instructions. As the waves of life pulsated around you through your mother’s heartbeat, the voice of the sacred synched your heart with all life, giving you your original voice that pulsated God is Love is God is Love is. Your original voice has not ceased singing this holy song bestowed upon you through your mother while safe in the womb, but men who abuse women have stopped listening. You were safe within your mother’s womb, and women should be safe after you are outside of there. Your original, holy instructions continue to beat in perfect rhythm waiting for your return to your original voice. It is such a short walk from your head back to your heart, only seventeen inches, yet without remembering The Sacred Rite of Birth the path cannot be found, because when you forget The Sacred Rite of Birth there is no light.
We, all men, were once within the holiest place on earth, and when we remember The Sacred Rite of Birth, the path to our heart is illuminated, and we know our holy instruction is to recreate that holy place of safety and love on this earth. Remembering The Sacred Rite of Birth is perhaps the only way humanity will ever know what was meant when Jesus Christ said, “On earth as it is in heaven.”
