Warrior/king culture left unchecked results in tyrant

From conception of a child to the emergence of the universe, hidden in plain view is the energy life force principle. This principle is called by many names, yet its function and relationship remain constant.

Mystics and poets, desert fathers and shamans seem to have caught glimpses of these things long before our contemporary sciences. Before God spoke only in King James English, yoga mats, and the latest psychedelic trends, first peoples integrated maps of meaning to live sustainability within their environment.

Prior to the age of warrior/king cultures, divine feminine cultures represented a time and space of human collaboration and sharing. Divine feminine cultures out of the animistic epoch see the divine spark of life as something to commune with rather than consume or conquer.

In today’s political climate, warrior/king culture has dominated the spheres of society and the natural environment.

If left unchecked, thus emerges the tyrant. Environmental capitalism and monopolies continue to steal, kill and destroy land and people groups. Deforestation, coral bleaching, water diversions, poor natural resource management and soil depletion due to chemicals and pesticides all continue the structural violence we live in today.

So let us not listen to the voice of the tyrant that marches its empire on diverse tongues, tribes and nations. But return to the innate which is the life force that drives biodiversity and human consciousness into deeper levels of insight into the mysteries of the universe.
