Shrewd Awakenings: How Are You Using Centering Energy?
Female energy at it’s core is Chaos. Male energy at its core is Order. These are opposing emotional energies, and no matter where you are on the LGBTQ or cis-gender spectrum, you can exhibit these energies in a variety of unhealthy ways.
What humanity needs is a balance which can only be found through centering energy…Christ knew this, Ghandi knew this and MLK knew this as have many others who understood the human need for freedom.
Government is not our friend in the quest for freedom because government is control inspired by men and women who are imperfect. To expect that a government authority could administer an efficient program for all with equal results is impossible. This is why government must be limited in its scope and why the individual must have maximum freedom to explore their unique potential.
The Enlightment ideas based on reason, individualism and skepticism did not occur overnight. Influenced by 17th century philosophers such as Descartes, Locke, and Newton with prominent promoters like Goethe, Voltaire and Adam Smith, the further development of these ideas formed the basis of our U.S. Constitution. We could conclude that the Enlightment is the centering energy for our government.
Are our law makers on Capitol Hill using centering energy? I think many are not! They take an oath to uphold the Constitution and yet all I see are the energies of order and chaos at work:
Chaos demonstrated by:
- Identity groups causing disruptions
- Women literally crying as a force to be reckoned with
- A porous southern boarder
- Out of control deficits and spending
Order demonstrated by:
- Emigration that helps parties and not people
- Equality of outcomes as a means to an end
- People forming separate group identities
- Media platforms pushing compliance of liberal platitudes
We must be very careful not to live enmeshed in these opposing energies. Our binary form of government leadership only adds to this push-pull hysteria. To balance these energies leadership must become more “enlightened” and model best practices of reason through understanding, skepticism within context and legislation honoring our inalienable rights. And we the people must become more “enlightened” and model good works while loving our neighbor as we love ourselves.
