Paul Lowe is a wonderfully entertaining teacher…here he discusses why people who know that they are loved and given messages from those they love to change things. Fun things.
From last time…
“In the process they push the authentic feminine spirit further and further away, causing themselves more fear, which causes them to institute more draconian and restrictive systems to force energy to themselves…”
And this is where we are today. Isolated. Afraid.
I walk down urban streets, ride the subway, shop. Fear is everywhere. No one dares look. No one dares trust.
No one dares connect. The Other might be hostile. Or clingy. Or any of a million things that damages my fragile safety. My security. My peace.
Men are voraciously prowling for women’s energy.
And women are holding on for dear life to that precious energy which is intimately connected to their soul and their sexuality.
It feels existential. It must be protected. And who else can protect it but her? Each of us is drifting further and further apart, becoming more “independent”, more isolated. Until we feel completely alone most of the time.
This is the state of most of the world today.The chasm between the genders, tearing as it does even between two sleeping bodies on a single mattress seems impassible. A connection feels impossible. A solution unfindable.
What is to be done?
And who is to do it?
May I suggest a plan?
The Dalai Lama said, “The world will be saved by the western woman.”
If he is right, we know what will be done and who will be doing it.
First of all, if you are a western woman, are you willing to save the world? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to bring yourself to the state of being able to save the world? Risk whatever it takes? Suffer whatever it takes?
Because this is what I have determined. Unless our purpose is sufficiently strong to enable us to be able to sacrifice everything secondary for our cause, we will fail.
I will fail.
You will fail.
All will be lost.
That need not happen. And you don’t even have to do anything horrible or painful. In fact, unless you have joy, we all have no hope.
Here are three steps you can take to save the world. Ready, ladies?
1. Find your joy.
2. Live your passion.
3. Express your beauty.
First: Find your joy.
What is it that makes you jump for joy? Squeal in pleasure? What fills you with excitement and power? What is it that enables you to move through your day with joy and bliss?
If you don’t know, find that thing, whatever it is. That is the doorway into your unique energy.
Second, Live your Passion.
Once you find it, make love to it. Connect to it. Dive deep. Become one with it. Consume it. Allow it to consume you. Follow that essential self right into the very center of it.
And once you have done that: Express your beauty.
No matter where your joy and passion are to be found, it will allow you to bring forth your unique beauty from your womb into the world. Your joy. Your passion. It will just flow.
Does this sound impossible? Ask for help.
Do you not know how? Ask for help.
Are you not strong enough? Ask for help.
Next time: How the Men can Help…
At the bottom of every man’s fetish: every porn addiction, every fascination with prostitution or peep shows is the deep desire for energy. Feminine energy.
Men are born desiring it. Craving it. Needing it. And virtually every avenue is closed to them for receiving it. Gentleness. Compassion. Touch.
No man can be successful in a worldly sense without it. Look at almost any “successful man” in the world. He has at least a wife and a mistress, if not many lovers.
Paradoxically the love of woman is both the reason for all he does and the thing which enables him to accomplish the most out in the world. Men are promised that if they can woo a woman enough for her to “commit” to him for life, then he can have as much energy as he desires. What he finds out however is that that is one of the biggest lies in all existence.Instead of having the goddess mirror to accept his energy and validate him in the world, he often finds himself cut off, alone and unconnected to the planet on which he lives, unheld by the feminine of creation.This magnifies his existential fear, and in his desperation he lashes out to control the feminine and her energy to prevent it from engulfing and destroying him psychically.
The more painful his experiences with the feminine, the more he will attempt to control.
So, men have been attempting to gain control of Her energy by manipulating the environment (as opposed to nature) in a multitude of ways.
They have created marriage and used religion to enforce it through morality. They have promised women safety by this monopoly of her energy. In reality, it is a prison
They have used politics to use the force of violence to take women’s energy.
They have tried to use knowledge as a weapon, creating colleges and barring women from entry, to create false dependence and reliance on men.
They created money and financial systems to steal the fruits of the land and the land itself from her–to threaten her with starvation and homelessness if she does not yield.
They have tried to hold her back from the arts. From medicine. From knowledge in every form.
In the process they push the authentic feminine spirit further and further away, causing themselves even more fear, which causes them to institute more draconian and restrictive systems to force energy to themselves…
Until the entire world stands on the brink of destruction.

(This was recently posted on Facebook and garnered quite some comments…what do you think about it? Let me know via e-mail or on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ryan.orrock/posts/4824491609479 )
How do our ideas about how the world works keep us back from truly experiencing and living in the world?
How do labels and concepts separate rather than connect us, from ourselves, each other, and the universe?
How are words created to hypnotize us into untrue beliefs?
How can we let go of these beliefs and begin to live in the ‘here and now’ again?
All of this discussed in this podcast. Enjoy!
Buddha’s Birthday is today! Happy birthday, Buddha! What can we learn about ending our suffering and discovering who we are from Buddha’s life?
