My Journey to Matriarchy - 21sep21

Like many survivors

of the C-PTSD

that comes from prolonged child abuse

I was drawn to the promised safety

and quasi-parental approval

dangled before me by patriarchy,

like a carrot before a donkey,

or like Chancellor Palpatine

dangling the promise

of protecting the lives of loved ones

before Anakin Skywalker.

And like many survivors

of both fetal-alcohol-syndrome

as well as childhood molestation

rage was a big part of my neurological make-up.

Although I fought against

my inner monster all my life

using EVERY tool at my disposal,

I found the world view of patriarchy

as well as its techniques

to not only be impotent in my quest

but to actually exacerbate my latent rage.

As a child of the mid 60’s

the idealized archetype of the hippy girl

drew me to the Tao Te Ching

and Patrul’s final Shastra

which, in turn, drew me

inexorably to matriarchy.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
