“Death of a Girl’s Soul” … "...young girls are told to look pretty and be demure — like the pinup models on the man-caves of men...."

Which is an excerpt from “Electra: Maternal Jealousy and Revision of the Electra Complex as the Primal Scene ... The Assault of the Mother Expresses the Way Mothers, in Patriarchy, Are Likely to Feel About Their Daughters”” … which is Chapter 44 of Dance of the Seven Veils I:

QUOTES … “...this inability of the parent to see past their needs to those real and crucial needs of the child diminishes the daughter or son."

"She exists in a coma-like state, which is a pretty good description of the kind of trance state that this kind of tainted parenting produces in the child."

"...she’s living in a coffin of restrictions on her aliveness imposed by the deadening influences on her short life, but damn, she’s pretty!"

"As for men addicted to porn, the woman does not even have to be alive!"

"...for a spell she has a time of a reawakening of her aliveness, formerly suppressed."

"The question, after having been robbed of who we could have been in life ... is, well then “Who am I?”"

HIGHLIGHTS/ABSTRACT … "...this inability of the parent to see past their needs to those real and crucial needs of the child diminishes the daughter or son. It bludgeons their vitality and life force. Not quite killing the body, it murders the soul instead."

"...after the final attempt with the poisoned apple — akin to her primal scene, then — Snow White ends up in a deathly state because of all this. She exists in a coma-like state, which is a pretty good description of the kind of trance state that this kind of tainted parenting produces in the child."

"She is even placed in a glass casket. Any of you thinking “seen but not heard” at this? Well, that would be accurate. For indeed young girls are told to look pretty and be demure — like the pinup models on the man-caves of men — but, more and more so as they get older, not to be alive in any way threatening to older women, or any of men, either."

"...the tale says Snow White remains in this half-alive state until she is awakened by the Prince. How this happens, well, wouldn’t you know it? He is attracted by her beauty. I mean she’s practically dead and she’s living in a coffin of restrictions on her aliveness imposed by the deadening influences on her short life, but damn, she’s pretty! That’s quite a telling depiction of the state of young romance after patriarchy."

"...the Prince falls in love with Snow White and engages with the dwarves to let him take her — mimicking the negotiations of men over the property of young women down through history. In a coffin, mute and unmoving, the girl has absolutely no say in it. However, when the Prince goes to make off with the coffin ... and picture the pathos in that, won’t you? As for men addicted to porn, the woman does not even have to be alive!"

"Finally free of the tight bodice of the natal family — and having been physically moved from the family by the intentions of the “enchanted” male, traditionally — for a spell she has a time of a reawakening of her aliveness, formerly suppressed. This coming to consciousness is had in the form of pleasure, sexuality, with luck some tenderness and attention, perhaps even some sort of love. All of which had been missing, however much desired, in her childhood."

"She says, “Where am I?” This expresses not only the fact that where she will live will not be determined by her, rather by the men in her life, but also something about the question we are all — male and female alike — left with after the primal scene. The question, after having been robbed of who we could have been in life and who we were destined to be — coming in with the unique set of skills and aspirations we each bring to the world — is, well then “Who am I?” Snow White’s “Where am I?” is only a second thought away."

Wounded Deer and Centaurs: The Necessary Hero and the Prenatal Matrix of Human Events is about the environmental crisis, activism, and psychology. It presents a major new theory in psychology, specifically in prenatal and perinatal psychology. This new understanding is the one crucial to saving our planet, our children, and ourselves. This book, also, reveals the ones — people probably like you — who are here now and destined to save this planet … or die trying.

https://www.amazon.com/Wounded-Deer-Centaurs-Necessary-Prenatal-ebook/dp/B01D3PL1Z6/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Apocalypse Emergency—Love's Wake-Up Call is about a frightening global predicament that everyone seems to be aware of but which few people are giving the attention and seriousness it deserves. Why people would do that and why the media would be inclined to shy away is understandable.

We simply have no way of comprehending the magnitude of what is happening—the end of life on Earth—nor how fast it is occurring—likely in our lifetime—since no living thing on this planet in its multibillion year history has had to face what we are.

https://www.amazon.com/Apocalypse-Emergency-Return-Grace-Book-ebook/dp/B00FIV984U/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Prodigal Human: The Descents of Man: On the doorstep of an apocalypse of our own making, a revisioning of human’s presumed role as “crown of creation” and “pinnacle of evolution” is not just warranted but required. We are the prodigal daughters and sons of Nature and the Divine, no doubt about it. Prodigal Human reveals exactly that twistedness and how we can get back what we lost.

This retreat from harmony with Nature, along with an incisive exposition of the resulting state of falleness, as it built up over time, is detailed in this book. The devolution involved in our, so-called, “evolution” is explained as to how it began, all the way back with bipedalism; how it proceeded—in a step-by-step process of descent occurring over the course of millions of years, including the emergence of birth trauma, the agrarian revolution, hierarchical societies, classism, child use and abuse, the oppression of women and rise of patriarchy, and the diminishment of self and feeling; and how it gradually coalesced into what we call human … into what we mistakenly think is our human nature.

In Prodigal Human: The Descents of Man, we see how we came to be estranged and discover that state to be one less than what we are potentially: We are prodigal or fallen … therefore we do not have to be. This book uncovers the dark side of civilization and, by contrast, reveals the bright side of human potential, within Nature.

The prodigal human will be welcomed back into the fold of Nature, if and when we have finally had enough and decide to make the journey home. In Prodigal Human, we learn exactly how what we left behind could be again embraced and how that redeems us as a species and liberates us as individual humans.

THE TRUTH, the Hidden Face of Death, and Being God in Spite of You:

“In spite of ourselves we can’t help but act as the Divine"

QUOTES/HIGHLIGHTS: “Those most clinging to form and with the least experience of No-Form are the most insistent on the reality of death ... eventually, as you near hOMe, sure enough you realize there is no death.”

“Over and over again, before they actually die, they face what is felt to be death and discover it has another side — a hidden face which is an expansion of consciousness, a rebirth. More and more the prospect of death loses its anxiety; over time one becomes less fearful and more free.”

“Westerners … filter out real or deep experience from their lives; they further diminish consciousness from what it already is in just being human. They … “insure” their lives against any possible deep experience, let alone death, and so they fear it most exceedingly, having nary a glimpse of its beatific other face ... and knowing little of its nature as another peek-a-boo, another thing that will be fun to discover was not as was feared and in fact was something wonderful.”

“...the Universe — ourselves in essence — continually brings to us the experiences we need in order to grow and re-member again….”

“In various ways, and gradually over time, we recall our formlessness, we regain our liquid memories.”

“Death then loses its power in derailing our perception of What Is. We learn that killing is not possible for God, for there is no death.”

“…since there is no death, there is no time limit on realizing our Divinity.”

“We are always ourselves trying to get ourselves back hOMe….”

“…it’s all Love that we give each other because whether we are assisting ourselves in reducing awareness to set up the experiment in Experience we call the individual self or helping ourselves back from it, we are glorifying the Divine adventure and moving it along. In spite of ourselves, we can’t help but be God.”

“…in spite of ourselves we can’t help but act as the Divine to ourselves and to others, perfectly, in bringing about many Divine adventures in consciousness. For even the seeming imperfection of it all — our actions and others — is part of that perfection, even if the realization of that does not come till after we have left our human form.”

“In spite of ourselves, we’re gonna end up a sittin on a rainbow.”

The Magnificence of the All That Is ... Infinity of Experience ~ Infinite God: "trials of life at least make for quite a story"

Those Times You Absolutely Hate, The Divinity Within You Might Be Finding Interesting

“God only gives me that which I am able to handle at any particular time.” Now, that’s faith."

“This faith I’m talking about … is an awareness, however dim, that pain is not all painful, is not one-hundred percent painful. Faith is the unthought awareness — however unexpressed — that a part of us, the part that is Divine, is at least finding tribulations interesting. The trials of life are at least making for quite a story, and in that way it is better than a lame boring life story in which all pain is somehow kept away.”

“Faith is an awareness that Reality does not contain irreconcilable extremes of heaven and hell, but that, as the Tao symbol indicates, even in darkness, in pain, there is a seed of enjoyment; and in light, in pleasure that allows no darkness, there is indeed a seed of misery.”

“Dark and complicated experiences move the plot of life forward by stirring the pot, adding an element that is different.”

“[God is] infinitely experiencing, and She has for all time. So, with an infinity of experiences, there’s always going to be newness.... Newness, interest, fascination, poignancy ... magnificence. The magnificence of the All That Is.”

“And yet, He’s been doing it for all time. So how fascinating is that? How fantastic?!”

HIGHLIGHTS-ABSTRACT: … “One might talk about, espouse, and envision an Inner Child, but one is hardly become child-like of emotion — silly and easy to weep and laugh, spontaneous and innocent — for one would not want to be seen as “childish.” One might feel resonance with and perceive Divine and Creative principles in cultural projections — art, theater, movies, internet — but not identify and engage with them through becoming an artist oneself. Aspects of self, rather than being felt, become concepts of Adult, Parent, Child and, at a safe distance and hiding behind the shield of the concept, get routed like planes from the control tower of the mind, however impotently.”

“And everything gets CAPITALIZED, but not felt. Feelings of anger and rage and controlling inside oneself become the Divine Masculine. Feelings of nurture, the emotional release of weeping, compassion, unity with others become the Divine Feminine. And as concepts these things are orchestrated and managed … but not experienced and felt. One’s inner deception about oneself and fleeing from one’s personal truth gets made larger than life, capitalized, and theologized … and thus reinforced.”

“In this stance in the outer world, one does not immerse oneself in and engage with the injustices of life….”

“This Way of Perseus has one fiddling with the unpleasantness of life — inside and outside — but indirectly, at a distance, second-handedly, without the mess of personal involvement or real commitment….”

“So Jungians are only slightly less militaristic than Joseph Campbell. They are only slightly less enslaved by their emotions and the powers that be; they are only slightly more “awakened.” They are the cheer leaders of self-aggrandizing intellectuals, armchair theologians and philosophers, and suburban spiritual “adepts” — meticulously treading Buddha’s cartography of self in softly cushioned, air-conditioned, media-saturated homes. They fertilize the ground of the technologies of consciousness control, masquerading as new-age or evangelical.”

“This is the arena knee-deep with a chaotic and confused swamp of self-analysis, affirmations, life coaching, and garden variety counseling and personal improvement programs. Whether one can effectively bring about personal change at this level or one merely postpones the greater encounter with self for another time is an open question. My take on it is that these techniques of supposed self-improvement and consciousness “awakening” are Ego stunts; they give a semblance of growth while mesmerizing one in a way only slightly less all-encompassing or trance-like than the state of being completely unconscious and in denial of these hidden aspects of self and of these feelings.”

“…this intellectualizing of one’s inner life is often as bad if not worse than being completely oblivious to the promptings of self. For one can convince oneself of the rightness and importance of an active and all-out war with the elements of self — fending off ferociously any immersion in and feeling of them. One is fortified in one’s repression of real feeling by telling oneself it is a “pity pot.” One can avoid realizations for they are preceded by “negative” thoughts. One is supported in not being “weak” and of “digging deep” in oneself, when it is surrender and letting go that would bring the greatest releases and awakenings. Conversely, one fails to see the suffering of others, looking through that same filter, for it labels their communications as “whining” or “complaining” and to be ignored, even put down; for such “weakness” is some kind of evil, one feels.”

“…meanwhile, one is patted on the back for being a hard-worker, when it is merely reinforcement of being sycophantic and slave-like and is cowardly about the real “work” (play, actually) of inner awareness. For any kind of growth requires leaving off of the defenses of overwork and taking time for oneself. One is lauded for trying hard, with nonsensical platitudes like “You can be anything you want, if you try hard enough” … “You can accomplish anything through hard work” … “Your biggest dreams can be realized through perseverance and determination.” While in actuality, failure is a necessary corrective on everyone’s path; accomplishing what one wanted in childhood and earlier in life might not be all that grand an achievement for an adult; and, most importantly, surrender and letting go are precipitated, always, by obstacles and are necessary components of spiritual and personal growth. For it is only in those fallow periods, that ebbing, those valleys and down times, that one gets taught and is directed more accurately toward the goal….”

”Patriarchal Fantasies of the Feminine and the Manipulation of Daughters … “Crime” and Punishment”

… “[Athena] is the patriarchal anima representing consciousness and cosmic knowledge of the cerebral kind, not the experiential variety…. She is Ken Wilber in a dress…. [She is the] masculinized version of the goddess, supporter of the hierarchy and its elitism, kind of a Greek Ayn Rand.”

Which is an excerpt from “The Way of Patriarchal Man: The World Divided, Origins of Monsters, the Third Fall from Grace, and Patriarchal Fantasy of the Feminine” …

which is Chapter 19 of Dance of the Seven Veils:

HIGHLIGHTS-ABSTRACT: … “In the patriarchy, women and Nature are reviled and considered not spiritual; whereas the realms of the spirit are divorced from the physical and are considered “transcendent.” Hence the patriarchy reinforces a strict dichotomy in the world. It divides the world up into good and evil, sacred and profane.”

“We see a woman here who is not only sexual, god forbid, but is intimate with inner knowledge. In another age, she would be called a witch and killed for such effrontery. The Perseus story shows sentiments were not much different in archaic times.”

“Athena is a patriarchal fantasy of the feminine. She is a male concoction, a creation — equally as distorted as the other projection of women by men, the Medusa. Indeed, Athena does not have a mother, she is a product only of the father.”

“That not enough, the bread is baked when we find out about the birth of Athena. She is said to have “popped out fully formed from the forehead of Zeus.” If that is not saying she is not real and is only men’s “projection” — a product only of a man’s thoughts and wishes — I don’t know what is.”

“Athena, a male concoction, is propaganda brought to bear in ancient times to keep women in line and faithful and adoring of their men. She is the opposite of the kind of goddess depicted in pre-archaic times and those associated with natural, indigenous, and especially gatherer-hunter societies and cultures. Those goddesses represent Nature, the processes of sex, death, and birth, the forest … and the wild, spontaneous, uncertain, irrational, intuitive, and unpredictable. Athena, however, is said to represent the city, purity, sanitized civilization, “righteous” warfare (George W. would have loved her). She is called “Athena of the city” and “Athena the virgin.””

“…she is the goddess of the old-fashioned, murderous hero, a lover of cowboy movies, with a portrait of John Wayne installed in her multi-room gallery featuring dead heroes.”

“She is the patriarchal anima representing consciousness and cosmic knowledge of the cerebral kind, not the experiential variety. She would be a supporter of … modern day Ego psychologists and would put up her nose at shamans and psychedelic experience. She is Ken Wilber in a dress.”

“She is the opposite of the Earth, the opposite of Gaia; she is womanhood as fantasized by men, sans Nature and all its “irrationality,” intense and unexpected pleasures, bloody and sweaty biology, and exquisite love and belongingness.”

“Athena is the post-paleolithic cultured and masculinized version of the goddess, supporter of the hierarchy and its elitism, kind of a Greek Ayn Rand.”

“Athena, the virgin Athena, the symbol of civilization, hierarchy, and feminine obedience, like some Muslim aunt or mother bringing genital mutilation — a clitoridectomy — to her daughter or niece, changes Medusa’s beautiful hair to horrid snakes. This will put an end to her dallying, no doubt.”

“…in this vicious opposition between Athena and Medusa, see the obvious conflicts between the appropriate ways of womanhood. Naturally, since the split was created by men, both concoctions — slut and virgin — express men’s psychic distortions of women.”

“Athena advises Perseus. This merely says the conforming female in a patriarchal society will be complicit in the diminution of the son. And this we see in cultures the world around. The women might not be central in the male rites of passage, which are meant to disfigure the boy’s soul to the patriarch’s liking; yet they will be included in some peripheral way.”

“…mothers are required to hand over their charges to the fathers. Where they will be assaulted. And, yes, mothers will often do it reluctantly. Often they will weep. But it they must do.”
