When I read the book 'Untamed'
I recognized so much.
I saw the similarity with the energy we live in,
and also the blocks we have.....
We talk about girls being powerful,
living their lives, being independent
and.....finding boys/man often less powerful
if they show their emotions....
We see in society strong leaders
and leaders who still believe that you
need to put people down to be a leader.....
only unhealed leaders need this.....
Glennon Doyle, the writer of the book,
had bulimia and was addicted.
She stopped using drugs and alcohol
when she found out she was pregnant.
When she went through her divorce
she fell in love with a woman:
a shock for her and.....she followed her hart.
Till then I could understand her path:
taking responsibility, go for unconditional love
and live life.
Then I was challenged:
she is using medicine
to make sure she lives a happy life.
'I need it to cope with society'.....
and it touched my believe system.....
In 1996 is was teaching at the American school
and was first confronted with children who 'needed Ritalin'.
'For me it is not ok! We should make sure that we teach in a way
that these children can learn and be themselves.
It cannot be that children need medicine because we,
as teachers cannot deal with it!
Now it looks like 'normal' that children 'need medicine'
to cope.......and for me every person should need to feel
safe and secure in society.....
If not.....society should change.....
Like we believe that love is love,
that all people should belong and accepted.
Pluto in Aquarius
respect for everyone.....
What does my reaction/feeling on using medicine
say about me....
Can I disagree about using certain medicine
and still respect the person who is using it?
Can I feel that addiction to drugs and alcohol
is for me as an addiction to medicine?
medicine should be used to help your body stay healthy
if you cannot do it yourself.......yet.....
Do I feel guild or shame or
do I judge people who need this?!?
How about me?
I wouldn't be alive
if doctors were not there with the birth of our children.....
I wouldn't be alive
if I didn't had an operation for cancer......
Is that different than using medicine?!?
Perhaps it is that I don't agree
if you need to use it
to 'survive' in society.
That you are not accepted because you
look different/think different/behave different....
I believe we should be respected as we are.
I believe that everyone deep down want to be respected
and wants to respect and.....
if we don't....
we are wounded.....
If we need help
to heal this wounded part,
than it is great we can use medicine/doctors etc.
But if the help we get,
keep us addicted than I am not sure
this wounded part will be healed.....
Let's choose to stay 'untamed'
I see it in the world cup in Doha:
lot of old issues come up and revealed....
I see it in power issues in the media world in Holland:
powerful people are revealed as wounded leaders....
I see it in the protest in China
We already feel the energy of Pluto in Aquarius
Sometimes I choose to sit with me....
so light can shine in me
and light up my shadows.
Is there still a traumatized part inside of me
that wants to be healed.....
Is there a traumatized part in society
that needs to be healed........
