Bolsonaro shows no mercy concerning the uncontacted tribes in the Amazonas (article below). They are on the very brink of extinction. So why should I bother? Because we are all one in the bigger Heart of Existence. An when our split mentality is projected out into our surroundings, this is a possible result.
Again I can see the similarities in the movie Avatar with what is happening in Brazil. A mirror of what happens when the economical factors rule, the old patriarchal paradigm. We have treated Mother Nature as we have treated the feminine in this world the last three hundred centuries. Now we have reached a dead end and it’s very close to the point of no return.
What is the solution then? To balance our minds so that neither the masculine or the feminine principle are dominant. Then we will project peace and respect for all living things and quick results will come.
Shaman and author Alberto Villoldo wrote:
‘When the first chakra is disconnected from the feminine Earth, we can feel orphaned and motherless. The masculine principle predominates, and we look for security from material things. Individuality prevails over relationship, and selfish drives triumph over family, social and global responsibility. The more separated we become from the Earth, the more hostile we become to the feminine. We disown our passion, our creativity, and our sexuality. Eventually the Earth itself becomes a baneful place. I remember being told by a medicine woman in the Amazon, “Do you know why they are really cutting down the rain forest? Because it is wet and dark and tangled and feminine.’
