We are currently travelling through Central Australia. It is hot and dry and the sun bakes the land. I have asked myself the question, who is the ruler of the desert?
What I have found is that the element of water, the feminine influence is in control. She is the giver of life. She has been here thousands of years ago and she is still here now. We must remember to honour her and give her the respect she deserves because she is the creator of life in the desert.
In desert where the sun shines and the masculine influence is predominant, it is still controlled by the feminine. Tribal cultures have always known this, we in the city are oblivious to this. Our water is on tap, if it is hot, we go inside and turn our air conditioners on. If we are hungry we go to the supermarket to buy our food. Everything is convenient, we do not have to think about the balance in nature.
So how does that relate to us? To live a balanced life we can be predominantly masculine in the way we live ours lives, driven and focused but we must temper that respectfully and honourably with our feminine side, our giver of life.
Learning a new respect and balanced way of life.
