We went to see A Star is Born last night… our first movie experience in about a year and a half, finally got a baby sitter – whoop whoop on that front 🍂🍃
I had expectations, yes, couldn’t help myself… I love movies and I love sitting in a full movie theatre with the energy of everyone focusing on the same thing… it’s potent 🍂🍃 So I expected a love story, some great chemistry and some phenomenal singing 🍂🍃
What I didn’t expect was such a HUGE story… I don’t normally consider myself a movie reviewer… but here goes….
🍂🍃This movie went way beyond the obvious of the love story with great chemistry and amazing talent – this was an actor playing a musician and a musician playing an actor with incredible passion and integrity for a much bigger VISION 🍂🍃
🍂🍃I saw the desire of the Patriarchy – the Divine Masculine in all It’s supporting, honoring, holding, respecting, intimately inseparable qualities – reaching out to uphold and imbibe with It’s equal and opposite, completely complimentary, other half – the Matriarchy – the Divine Feminine in all It’s creative movement, passion, inspiration and illogical flow. I saw the magic that happens when these polar opposites let each other be the deepest TRUTH of who they essentially are
🍂🍃I saw the Divine Feminine not wanting to change or make different the Divine Masculine but instead seeking to hold and nurture it with an embrace that held space for healing the rift that has caused so much pathology to rein for so long.
🍂🍃🍂🍃I saw the need for new structures to support those men who want to support their women in ways that forgive the past, move on from the negligent and ignorant ways of hiding the truth about who we really are.
🍂🍃I saw the need for new structures for men who want to heal, and to be forgiven for the Collective Shadow that has blindly driven their actions for centuries now.
🍂🍃I saw both the pathologic and sacred within the one man, the rift between too deep for a shaming society to heal.
🍂🍃I saw the longing to awaken to a world, a humanity, that holds space for imperfections, for effort made, for mistakes of the past and moving forward in new and more honoring ways.
🍂🍃I saw unconditional love… love that loves in spite of wrong doing; for in the wrong doing was the drive to be better, to re-cognize wholeness and to impart healthier ways forward, ways that can only be found because we harnessed the courage to act in spite of the fear that has been holding us back for so darn long that we’ve forgotten who we are beyond the fear.
🍂🍃I saw the need for humanity to allow men to forgive themselves – and for women to blow their hearts wide open, in spite of the harm that has been done… to move beyond the wrong doing and to open up to the mending that is now trying to claw it’s way back into society.
🍂🍃A couple of weeks ago there was a movement on FaceBook to black out the faces of women’s profile pics – it was in an attempt to show what the world would look like if there were no women in it…. I didn’t support this movement…. I didn’t see it as very well thought out – what we really need is to recognize that women have had a huge amount of time to work on themselves, to face into their shadow – both the one within them and the one projected upon them – and to empower themselves in raw and real ways. I’m deeply grateful we’ve had this time.
🍂🍃What I see the need is now, is for the men to have their chance to heal the Divine Masculine, to transform it from it’s pathological expression in the same way we’ve had a chance to transcend the whoring of our sex… It’s up to us to each #bethechange and move beyond finger pointing and blaming… the only direction that finger can point is within.
🍂🍃We cannot evolve just half the species, just as we cannot honor just a God. God is inside Goddess. You cannot take God out of Goddess or else you would just have dess and that means literally nothing – and there’s no way you can call the Mother nothing. God and Goddess, Masculine and Feminine, are as inseparable as the wet is from water and the white is from milk…. at this level we are beyond gender, and within gender there is both. Ostracizing one is ostracizing half of our SELF.
🍂🍃And I know that it was literally thousands of years that the Divine Feminine was squandered in all the terrifying ways She has been… but we live in the 21st century, we process exponentially faster than we ever have and we are evolving in population number even faster – but we are not evolving our intelligence any faster… just look at the President of the Divided Sates of America for an indication of how intelligent we’ve become…
🍂🍃When do we learn forgiveness?
🍂🍃It’s time, and this movie is a beautiful indication of this, for us to hold and support and FORGIVE the pathologies of the Divine Masculine. To heal the Divide that has been wedged between and to stitch the Mother back to the Father, the God back to the Dess, the wisdom back to the compassion, the stillness back to the movement, the ground back to the love, the being back to the doing…. for the sacred to dissolve the pathological so we may re-member the WHOLENESS that we are.
🍂🍃So my question is this…. how can we as women heal the rift in our own relations with the opposite gender? What inner work must we do to forgive our father or husband or brother or ex boyfriend/husband for all the wrong things he did?
🍂🍃And to my brothers, how can we support you to reclaim your inner empowerment and release the armor that keeps you from being vulnerable, raw and authentic with us? How can we, your sisters, be different to allow that to happen?
🍂🍃A humble and deep bow to Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for pulling off this much needed expression of Divine Love, Ultimate Acceptance and Radical Forgiveness.
🍂🍃When do we FORGIVE?
Please note… In no way do I advocate for any woman to stay in violent/disrespectful relationships. And I know from personal experience the profound courage it takes to get out of them. It’s my eternal challenge to iterate the perspective of the transpersonal thru the lens of something that is undoubtedly so simultaneously personal. There are so many layers within this movie, it can spark and trigger in multiple ways. It was indeed a huge story. May it help heal the divide within us as much as between us.
If you would like some guidance in healing the rifts within the polar opposites of yourself, please connect with me. I would love to help 🍂🍃
