The Conscious Feminine is about the development of Love. Feminism was about women getting out into the world and being accepted into Masculine establishments. In order to be qualified you have to put caring behind clinical excellence not alongside it as an equal value. When I talk about including the Feminine, people sometimes say to me ‘but where would the money come from?’ There is always the money for ‘whizzy’ Masculine things, like new rail lines or football stadiums. These things are usually built on the death and/or exploitation of other people. Stadiums are built on cheap labour but footballers and athletes don’t say ‘I won’t compete unless the people who are building these places are treated properly.’ If only they did! I was watching a programme on India the other day and a man was getting ready to go to Quatar, to work on the Football Stadium being built there. He said several people he knew had already died there.
In mythology, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, is not only the Goddess of sexual Love: She is the moral governor of humanity. Her Law is that we never treat any living creature as an ’it’ and the ends never justify the means. As the Feminine comes in and women in the world stand for Love, not just in their family but in the world, everything will change for the better.
This is a huge development in history, specially the History of Love. My job is to help give a language and conceptual framework so that Love Herself can have a voice in the world.
