I wrote this before listening to
John Pilger: The Hijacking of Feminism
a movement of wholeness of being addresses imbalance, denial and
fakery, it meets the mind of perpetuating imbalance as the act of denial
in allegiance to a fake sense of self.
I'm talking both within the individual and as a Family.
When concepts are taken out of context and woven into identity - they marketize or weaponize 'identity'.
relationships are not embodiments of coercive denial and deceit but are
a living (context of) willingness in which denial coercion and deceit
can be brought to awareness and resolved within an honesty and honouring
of communication - which is not limited or defined conceptually or
emotionally - being a relational awareness in which the rigidity of mind
and its emotional denial can be recognised and truly felt from a
shifted perspective rather than acted out in set of an identity seeking
reinforcement or validation.
The play of narrative identities and
emotional reactivity - including the suppression of emotional
expression - is the fixation in investments of power and protection
against any resolution in which loss of power is perceived. The mutually
exclusive polarisation is the symptom of unwillingness to heal or truly
listen, receive or recognize another - save what they can be used for
private gratification, masked in terms that deflect the assignment of
hate or lovelessness to the other.
The seduction of the mind is
believing it in place of a truly receptive presence, The form the
seduction takes will indicate where a sense of lack is filled. A mind
can therefore be a deceiver - in the wish to be other than as we fear we
are or have become. An escape and evasion of believed self-lack in
external seeking, founded on a sense of survival urge over and against
a threat of being denied and deprived by experience of dissonance that
is intolerable and so is pushed down, frozen out, denied - because it
cannot articulate itself except as a redefinition of self and world in
terms of fear and division - guilt and separation.
It isn't just
our economy that runs on war and fear of war - it is our personality
construct and social identities that is predicated on a breakdown of
communication that imprinted itself pre-verbally and upon which an ego
or self image is grown and adapted to the human world - which is a
construct upon the organism of a psycho-emotional mapping or
conditioning of inner realities externalised and embodied as shared
experience - BUT the sharing in the belief and right to power of deceit,
denial and coercion, is the 'private mind' of a sense of separation
from Life, operating a sense of isolation that seeks fulfilment
externally in substitutions that join in order to separate, or seek in
order to not find, because a truly shared experience is love - and love
is undefended and therefore open to feel not only fulfilment of joy in
being - but the uprising of dissonance of denied self that seeks
reintegration - because we never escape our self so much as split or
dissociate within consciousness - and so the time and space of evading
and delaying the inevitable has an undercurrent of fear. BUT any truly
shared or synchronous experience witnesses to a quality of being free of
struggle and deceit - if only for an instant, and this re-cognition and
remembrance grows the capacity to re-evaluate the 'conditioned' self,
and to release energy from futility of struggle to more consciously
Willingness is forgotten in 'survival mode' in
which a set of actions and reactions override a felt consciousness with
the feeling one MUST fight, shield or escape - and all resources are
directed there - and all other needs are subordinated. The clinging to a
mind of driven identity is locking oneself in fight or flight stress,
losing all perspective and succumbing to fear and hate as if it were
The movement of being in which you can recognize yourself
and move as and thus be, identified in life - is the movement that a
psycho-emotional defence operates to deny, subvert and usurp - or
'hijack' to pass off as its own conflicted justification for power over
life - which is substituted for and usurped by narrative identities of a
managed existence. There is a choice but to recognize we have choice
we have to align in it by choosing NOT to align with the falsely framed
fear-defined path of a past made in confusion, and to pause and listen
and feel and relate with what is here - anew.
After watching the the video (17m) - and into comments:
Irony is when sarcasm establishes a meta language of coded messaging for the 'in group' that spins off its own identity and hijacks the movement is originally arose to support.
I don't say this is consciously intended - but sarcasm has been called the lowest form of wit with some reason.
The mask of humour can deliver a payload of hate. This may be completely different in context and so as said already - without full context it can backfire.
I appreciate that for me at least this moment of noticing serves to illuminate ways that we lose the movement by taking the role of its protector. Ultimately, hijacking is an inside job. But if we present ourselves in role we can then be fed and led or undermined and bled - in such identification.
The movement - as I use it - is a living rising and supporting inspiration. Once it institutionalizes it is already hijacked - because as John Pilger points out, any insult or threat to the institution (and its figureheads) is defended against without the introspection by which to recognize the nature of 'institutional' or ideological ego.
This is part of the corruption of power. Giving power to idols sacrifices the true movement. The forms of sheep can be wolves in disguise - so identity in form is robotic, will-less, sleepwalking. The Feminine is the Receptive and without the Receptive - NOTHING gets in. Communication is blocked and a divorced and psychotic Projective systematically disempowers itself in pursuit of an illusion of power.
The true balance of receptive and projective is not two - but nor is it a directed narrative of 'oneness and unity'.
Directed narrative is defined reality, and has all the power we give it, but is not a true will of magnetic desire calling and aligning a resonance of electric response. Its more a stifling or suppression of the will in fear of loss of control - that then substitutes for Power.
If we give up our will for a substitute then we may define it as 'being hijacked' - rather than recognize our need for true being and be the condition in which it can reach us as the feeling and knowing of being - a true movement of recognition. From which perspective our projection is truly aligned and grounded as a representative expression of an integrity of being rather than an elitism of self-justifying power to deny freedom of movement of being.
It's ironic that using the ideal of 'freedom of movement' as a weapon invokes the ideal of a true freedom as a cover for private agenda - which aligns vibrationally in open 'conspiracy' to manipulate and remake life in its own image. If the fruits of the lie are evils - the father of the lie is a wish hijacking true will. To align with true seems a disobedience to the false and may be treated as treachery, betrayal and heresy by those who don't know that what they think they know is falsely framed - but it is at rest within an unconflicted sense of self. There is a quality of being that is not willingly given up once opened - and a vigilance against deceit that grows in discernment by recognizing how and whereby it is deceived.
The persona becomes the hijack of true individuality - until reintegrated to serve a different function. The 'end-times' uncover us back to our beginnings - yet forwards to a true RE-evaluation of our foundation. Perhaps a sense of disobedience to relational self honesty calls stronger than the desire to embrace Life? But the greatest human virtue is that which lives THROUGH us, as recognition extended to others that then reflects to us as truly shared existence, rather than virtues which by denial and limitation and control can be assigned to a personal and private sense of power - whatever forms it takes.
