It’s a Man’s World, Not So Much Anymore

Today On my walk I ran across this creature, and I was fascinated by its beauty.   And what it was about to do fascinated me even more.

As is customary, the turtle moves very slowly and will retreat into its home, its shell if it feels threatened.

As I walked closer it did just that, until it recognized that I was no real threat.  Then it slowly worked its way to a small tree near the road, and began to dig a hole with its hind legs.  I was intrigued.  I wasn’t sure what was happening.  So I watched for awhile.

it continued to methodically shovel dirt with its hind legs, first with the left one, then the right one, until I began to realize this could take awhile.  So I left my ancient friend to do what it seemed determined, albeit painstakingly slowly, to do.

At home I looked up the turtle’s behavior on google and discovered that it’s a nesting activity, and that the turtle was about to lay eggs.

Apparently an act that has been taking place for over 200 million years.

As I continued reading, I discovered that Mother turtle would give birth to her offspring, cover them up with earth to incubate them, and then move on, not returning to the nest.  The little ones were left to fend for themselves.

And I bet none of those little turtles have abandonment issues.  Nor do they feel obligated to call on dear old mom at the holidays.

I’m just taking a moment to savor that thought.

Looking back at motherhood’s history, I am sure many women wouldn’t mind being less tethered to their offspring.  Not that they don’t love their kids, but they have also been mothering humanity for eons of time.

They have also been accommodating the patriarchy and the toxic male energy for far, far too long.  Women found themselves in the role of assuaging the male anger, and protecting the fragile male ego, for purposes of self protection, mostly.  So it became a default behavior that was equated to love.  The over-nurturing, and turning a blind eye to being disrespected and abused.

Women had become the mothers to humanity, which included self-sacrifice as part of her service.  She downloaded the emotional and even the physical wounds of her fellow brothers and sisters.  She felt helpless to emancipate herself lest she be the target of male aggression.

it’s not personal. It’s a galactic story. Women have been doing it for thousands of years. It’s why we’re seeing such an uprising in so many women across the globe. They’re not taking it any more.

Because the Christ Consciousness has been birthed here at this time, along with the Divine Feminine, we are seeing the response to that consciousness in not so comfortable ways.

What we are seeing acted out on the world stage, the toxic masculinity being acknowledged and not side stepped as acceptable any more….and seeing that it’s been built on a house of cards…the efforts to protect a very fragile male ego.  One that believes itself to be abandoned by the feminine, and feeling actually unworthy of her love.

If that were not so, there would not be so much aggression, and demeaning of the feminine.  Think of it as a child who hates its mother because it feels abandoned by her.  Underneath the hate there is a wounded little child who believes he somehow is responsible for her seemingly withdrawing her love and attention.

But rather than facing the deep feelings of abandonment and pain, he projects it onto her.  Is this an oversimplified explanation?  Well, if we look at the behaviors toward the female of those in power, and even those who live a low profile, humble life, perhaps even our own family or associates, we see various degrees of that anger.

Both overt and subtle sexism and misogyny live in our culture.

And of course this toxicity applies to both genders, as we see that many women try to also uphold the illusion of male power as being the right way.

Meanwhile the wounds of both the masculine and feminine have been playing out here for eons of time.


So as uncomfortable as it is for all concerned, these waves of protest and exposure of the toxic masculine are a good sign.  The Feminine withdrawing its energetic support of an imbalanced masculine is taking place worldwide,  Yes, there is a long way to go as far as real change is concerned, but it’s a good start.

The mothering, nurturing behaviors of the feminine toward others, and especially toward the masculine,  is suddenly seen as being more of a protective behavior and less as a loving behavior.

The woman allowing the man to use his power to manipulate and to abuse her emotionally or physically is now felt deeply within her as unacceptable no matter the consequences.

Even if it means losing the male support she had come to rely upon.

And of course we realize that change won’t happen by simply changing laws and enforcing them, or even by the masculine and the feminine being more conscious of their attitudes, about how they feel about themselves and about each other.

Yet all necessary steps in the evolution of the species.

But until the masculine and feminine in each individual is united, in love and co-operation, nothing changes very much.  But then, if we look at our turtle friend, we see that slow and sure wins the race.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Six years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Woah Maria, I love this. Love how you led from your observation, and subsequent research into, the turtle’s ancient, instinctual behaviour. This closely mirrors how I find things out myself. Because we absolutely never stop learning and growing do we? Contemplation of the natural world, even the objects that ‘people’ our daily lives, can really trigger a line of what often turns out to be very profitable enquiry.

    I do not allow myself to be diverted from my own quest by anybody or anything. Our time is really here at last, and Maria, you have waited even longer than I have! Not that time means much when the big picture is eternity. Slow and steady indeed.

    Many of my best associates throughout my life are those who kept their light burning ‘under a bushel’ as the old saying goes. It’s from the Bible I guess. A bushel is something like, uh, a stack of hay, or grain, or oats on a wheelbarrow. Don’t quote me on that lol! But the point I’m really making is – these were humble people with cast-iron integrity and faithfulness to their own inner light. Many of them were diagnosed and ‘written off’ as lunatics. It would be scandalous how we have been treated, except that sometimes we are able to turn even ‘being written off’ to our favour. I know I have.

    At school I excelled in the arts, English and foreign languages. Maths and science were my nemesis. Even that has turned right around, as I make studying my bank balance and till receipts into an amusing and productive hobby (yes, it does seem to result in never having to go without anything I need – because of a deeply held conviction that I should never have to). And science, well in my small way I’m turning that around too! Because true science is what you and I practise Maria. It is coming to conclusions and developing theories based only on what used to be called ’empirical’ data. In plain English? It’s stuff we know from experience, from the kind of close observation, contemplation and personal research that you describe in this post.

    In other words? We come to no conclusions based only on hearsay or what was up until now written in books. We insist on ‘testing out’ our own hypotheses and will not feel comfortable defending them until we have done so. Because personal ego, a desire for worldly recognition or even wealth plays NO PART in our quest for knowledge. The fact that we literally have no ‘agenda’ except our natural, childlike curiosity, is indeed, our greatest strength.

    Let’s face it, just as women have been demonstrably able to outshine males at almost anything they set their minds to? Scientific luminaries in the his-story that makes up the patriarchal past on this planet have often been women such as Marie Curie to name just one very obvious one. Males are more likely to be inventors, because historically and even genetically they have been required to compete and make money somehow. Freeing them from that obligation is just as important a part of this Human Liberation Movement lol as freeing any female, because honestly? The women have streaked ahead and many males are actively cheering us on at every step.

    Well in my own life I see miracles, small and somewhat bigger ones lol, every single day. No two people can ever agree on what constitutes a miracle because it is an intensely personal thing. I can only speak for myself obviously, but all is going according to plan and I am mentally and emotionally at peace as never before.

    Thank you Maria for allowing me to share my thoughts at a level and depth I don’t often get the chance to do.

    • Louise
      As always, I love your insights and How you uniquely describe your experiences. And a big nod to this:

      “…it does seem to result in never having to go without anything I need – because of a deeply held conviction that I should never have to.”

      And so agree that it’s not anymore about lofty spiritual concepts we entertain ourselves with…’s now all about walking the talk. Putting into practice our knowledge. So I love this :

      “Because personal ego, a desire for worldly recognition or even wealth plays NO PART in our quest for knowledge. The fact that we literally have no’agenda’ except our natural, childlike curiosity, is indeed, our greatest strength.”

      Thank you dear friend, and fellow teacher, for sharing. 💕💕💕

  2. ug Maria, thank you always for speaking truth to this stuff so beautifully. i’ve been really heavy with this energy still lately… writing it out in my journals and poetry helps… but good gracious i’m all kinds of done with the patriarchy, the misogyny, the sexism, etc… it’s all a buncha exhausting bull poo 🙄

    hope y’all have been doing good 💕

    • Yes sweet pea, it’s too much to even contemplate at times. It is indeed, “all a buncha exhausting bull poo.” Well described!!!

      I don’t think many women have actually allowed themselves to acknowledge how it has impacted them, their bodies and their lives….

      and excellent way to express and channel the emotions, through writing, I never leave home without my journal.

      As always, it’s great to hear from you. Love and hugs🤗💕💕💕💕
