Saying No to Inequity: A key theme in my journey so far

Without realizing it at the time, a lot of my life decisions have been about resisting privilege and refusing to be a part of broken, racialized structures. I found them deeply engraved within the academic cultures of the US, Asia and Europe. (Merit-based scholarship holder here, not born with a silver spoon)

And it wasn’t just ‘white people’ – but also others who internalized the same norms and values in order to be seen as part of the status quo, and therefore more likely to be rewarded as such.

I’ve seen terrible abuses of power within the system and – as an individual – have always rallied against it.
Eventually, when it came time to figure out what to do after my PhD – leaving academia was all too simple.

I vividly remember being at an European conference on Feminism and just having to leave the room. No one was actually saying anything of substance that the others had not read. It was all about the posturing, the peacocking, the complete erasure of non-mainstream voices.

Or when a supervisor thought that she could tell me that I wasn’t ‘serious about the PhD’ whilst I was dealing with chronic fatigue (there was a phase I couldn’t even lift a spoon). I made sure she wasn’t my supervisor afterwards.

Or when the people on my research team could not be bothered to get my name right on their final publication (it was unrecognizable – literally like someone had typed a bunch of random letters). Or if they just pretended I did not exist and had conversations that should have involved me but did not – I was the only non-white scholar.

And certainly how they included me back when they wanted a person of colour there.

The kinds of things I’ve given up on on my journey have been tangibles, rather than hypothetical. Fully funded scholarships, access to a sweet post-doctoral research fund, life in Europe, working my way up to professorship, etc.

But it was a good call.

Academia didn’t and still hasn’t gotten it’s head out of its butt and still retains its toxic, increasingly managerial culture.

It isn’t what’s informing social change.

And it isn’t reaching people.

Conversations do. Articles do.

Even as a spiritualist, I brought the same set of values (and expanded upon them) when travelling around for work.

I could not get into the tropical spiritual retreat culture (after seeing how it impacted local economies and culture).

I do not share information that is specific and unique to certain cultures as I feel it should come from an actual elder.

I did not feel comfortable working with land that was traditionally owned by Indigenous peoples (who have struggled to retain that control since colonial times).

And anyone who has seen me work with land knows the effects are instant. Rains come, animals pop up. Land is happy.

I chose not to go down that path despite how much money it could have made me. Because it’s all too easy to skin indigenous culture from its roots and wear it like a grotesque bodysuit and get people to pay for the privilege of seeing you wear it.

The same Journey of saying ‘ No’ is mirrored in my relationship with Spirit. If it supports toxic structures, it goes. Simple as.

And now I keep refining my platform and making sure it’s not an echo chamber for the privileged – which does lose potential clients and reach.

Looking back, still happy with those choices.

I made a mistake believing that writing about liberal academic concepts meant that people were actually going to implement them.

I made a mistake believing that talking about spirituality meant that someone was willing to go in and do the work for reals.

What I did learn is that performative wokeness, performative allyship is pervasive.

People like to be seen signalling their beliefs and adherence to things that sound good.

But the willingness to do the work?
Disrupt a flawed status quo?
Say no to added income and status?
(Again, no silver spoon – i have no property to my name and zero savings)

That’s rare. And I appreciate everyone who has walked their talk.

And not just talked it.

Full Moon in Cancer / 1st Lunar Eclipse of 2020: Dissolve the Contract, Unearth the Soul

This Full Moon has felt very different from what astrology said it would feel like – and after talking to other facilitators on the same frequency – I´m sufficiently convinced that my interpretation has some general value. It is honestly getting harder for me to speak or write on astrology because of the way energy is changing: And that is a GOOD thing. The more a Soul comes to its own, original spark of consciousness – the less easily it slides and fits into the boxes and patterns that astrology predicts for it. And thankfully, I see that happening more and more with people.

Whilst the sign of Cancer addresses the home, the family, the Feminine (archetype in all matter and being), emotions and a sense of belonging – that´s not the dominant energy signature that I (and others on the same vibe) are picking up. Astrologically speaking, this is supported by a more in-depth analysis of the energy.

Between January 12-13 (UTC time), we will be experiencing the Major Capricorn Conjunction of the Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Pluto and Saturn (22-23 Capricorn). I will address this in a different article / video. Essentially what this conjunction asks of us is an uncompromising realization and action to determine what is true for us. What is the root that anchors us and the tribe that holds us as part of the collective.

Whilst we automatically (would like to) assume that´s family of origin, it´s not a guarantee.

Some people have families who love, nurture and support them in ways that help them blossom. That´s wonderful and if you have that, cherish it. Spend quality time with your loved ones and have a meal with them.

But that´s really not the experience for a lot of others. For some people, family is an abusive, narcissistic vampire pit they spend decades learning how to crawl out of (if at all) – and often by attracting partners who perpetuate that abuse till they´re ready to open their eyes to the root causes of it.

It´s wonderful to idealize family and pretend that the latter is not the norm – but truly, illusions are dissolving.

As we step up as co-creative, autonomous beings exercising their Free Will with Spirit, we also dissolve our relationship with dysfunctional roles and patterns we were forced to squeeze ourselves into. It´s best not to romanticize it as karma, purpose, whatever – we´re headed to the age of Aquarius. We have to learn to do things and speak truth to spirit differently.

Too much of what ails our world gets inculcated into young minds from the family unit. And we truly need to look there and begin the change there to see it ripple outwards. People are not born into racist, misogynistic, transphobic, xenophobic or sociopathic attitudes. They learn it from somewhere.

Astrologically speaking, this revelation is supported by The Sun and Mercury´s conjunction to Kassandra (the oracle who was ignored) at 19 Capricorn and inconjunct to Asbolus (19 Gemini), the seer of truths through signs in the skies.

Look back to your early childhood. Look at the missing pieces or strange gaps in memory. That´s very common for those who endure traumatic abuses in childhood or live through situations of incredible stress. Speak to a sibling or someone who was witnessing those events. It might spark a memory. (And a lot of emotion which can be deeply cathartic). Make sure you have the right support network if you feel vulnerable about this.

Now when you´re looking at this Eclipse (or any Eclipse) give it a build-up/wind-down period of +/- 7 days. Look at what´s happening in your life and world around you to understand the movement of energy. For astrological context, look to the other eclipses connected to this one (Saros Lunar Eclipse Cycle 144), namely: November 17, 1929 – November 28, 1947 – December 8, 1965 – December 20, 1983 – December 30, 2001 (in recent years).

At a collective level, the event that best captures the energy of this eclipse is the sudden (revelation of) decision by Princess Markle and Prince Harry to step back from ´senior roles´ in the British Royal Family and seek to become financially independent and live (at least partially) in the USA. That´s a big shock as this is unprecedented. In interviews, they have stated that they felt criticism when raising the possibiliy of change and that (Ms. Markle especially) felt like she was becoming voiceless by being forced into certain roles.

Whilst their decision in itself is not going to change family dynamics for the planet, it´s a good example of what this Lunar Eclipse supports.

Remember that the major Capricorn Conjunction and current Lunar Eclipse (19 Cancer) / Full Moon (20 Cancer) also aspect Eris (23 Aries). There´s certainly going to be an energy of urgency and the need to detach from situations of exclusion and erasure in the name of tradition, culture and power dynamics.

What´s also interesting about the need to erase roles is just how many Feminine astrological bodies are also aspecting the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius) at the same time: Venus (26 Aquarius), Haumea (27 Libra), Okyrhoe (27 Aquarius), Pallas Athena (26 Sagittarius), Circe (27 Aquarius), Minerva (26 Gemini), Nemesis (26 Virgo) and Aphrodite (26 Aries).

It´s truly a time to renegotiate the role the Feminine is expected to play in the collective.

Appeal to your higher guides and council. Ask for the dissolution of these collective roles and the dysfunctional societal and familial units that hold them in place. Allow for the renewal of True Divine Feminine energy to re-emerge in a way that is true, grounded and aligned with Love. Specify that the karma dissolved is not transferred, replicated, hidden to given to others and that there is no backlash at the energy or other levels. This also helps.

It is also important to note that there are many energies using the name of the Feminine / Goddess right now that really have nothing to do with it. You need to use your discernment and not fall into the trap of blinding yourself and your perception to make reality fit into your idea of the world.

The more these patterns and structures dissolve, the more your soul comes back to whatever its original ´feeling´ (if that word can be used) was.

Remember that home and family must support and anchor your energy.
And that you can and should no longer carry the karma others as we all move into higher dimensional consciousness. Each individual has already been receiving years´ worth of prompts, support and Divine cues.

What people are right now is what they have chosen to be.
Stop trying to save them from their choices and live your own life.

The more you let the mind and its boxes and labels get out of the way, the more you begin to truly feel. And that is what the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer can truly bring for us all.

My Approach to the Lunar Eclipse & Major Capricorn Conjunction (10-12 January 2020)

I’ve been thinking about why I’m not that fussed over the upcoming Lunar Eclipse or major Capricorn conjunction.

I’ve been walking my talk. Preparing for this incrementally over the past few years. Guiding people to do the same.

Sure, it’s a historically significant alignment.

And yes, it’s gonna change the world.

But it’s important to also realize that it’s not just about the ‘big things’ , out there.

It’s making all of us commit to a legacy worth leaving behind.

Whatever’s coming up between January 10-12 (UT time) is stuff we’ve already seen coming. It’s things we’ve set seeds for, personally and collectively, much like a wave of motion unfolding a constellation of dominoes.

There have been opportunities to course correct and at a personal level and many of us have taken them. That’s been the focus on so much incredible work spiritually and interpersonally over the past few years.

With Pluto in Capricorn, that has been the work of decolonizing and de-constructing the power dynamics that create hierarchical and oppressive relationships in the world. That is reflected in the same dynamics within family, intimate partnerships, ancestry, collective and personal shadow dynamics.

We were warned. And many of us have been doing what we can.

So whatever that is for you, keep at it.

Don’t fall into the fallacy that your life and efforts do not matter.

We live in a quantum reality. We have no way of knowing just how our personal work influences the political. Only time can tell.

If the flap of a butterfly’s wings can cause changes to the weather, your work also affects the collective and it’s unfolding.

Be responsible
Be diligent
Be committed

To what is in your power to change.

Trust that the ripples you set in motion have an influence beyond yourself.

That means taking decisive action. It’s not about intentions and prayers alone.

Getting hyped about the what ifs-and what might be-s doesn’t actually get anything done.

Take it a day at a time.
Do what you can.
Reach out to others who need a little help if you can.
Rest and replenish.
Wake up the next day and do it all over again.

That’s the way to go.

Blessings,

The Spiritual and Astrological Challenge of 2020: Broad Strokes

So, I researched thousands of aspects. And spent a long time collating everything. I felt the energy of the intensity of the work. And my laptop died.

So this is the best I can do right now

It’s a recording of a live YouTube video in which I lay out the macro vs micro complexities and challenges of the year ahead.

If you want the inside scoop on 2020, sit down, have a listen and take lots of notes.

Jupiter-Eclipse novile Mars and quintile Neptune! & Activations on Dec 27, 2019

This eclipse has been an interesting one. I´ve been thinking about what to write and truthfully I´ve already been consistently covering the kind of approach or attitude that is best for setting seeds at this time.

I think that has been especially hammered out in Tier-23 videos – but also in my public writings and videos. Especially Solstice Message 2019 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d48O4MCcnYQ

I´m going to go a little more in-depth for the Eclipse itself and look at alignments that are still occurring and shaping the energetic impact of its aftermath. In some sense, the full impact of the Eclipse gets activated today with The Sun-Jupiter and Mercury-Galactic Center conjunctions!

For reference – The astrological conjunction of the Sun and Moon / Solar Eclipse occurred at (4´6 Capricorn, 5:13 am UT, December 26th 2019). We´re still very much in the aftermath of its energies and still have the opportunity to make the most of the energy.

This Eclipse was especially powerful because it trined Uranus Rx (2 Taurus). A deeper analysis of the Eclipse showed that it also made a novile aspect to Mars and a quintile aspect to Neptune.

This means that the actions we took and ways we connected to the Masculine Archetype (in all forms and beings) set metaphysical seeds in ways that we cannot consciously fathom. So whatever you were drawn to do and act upon creates profound ripples in the way you navigate karma.

Don´t second guess your instincts, especially when they ask you to look deeper into the shadow and find paths of navigation with/away from/through it.

The quintile aspect to Neptune is a highly creative one which allows us to step more fully into our co-create relationship with Source energy. Again, because it´s Neptune, it´s a deeply spiritual experience in which the sky is not the limit: there is no limit to metaphysical experience and the growth that can come from it if harnessed in clarity and groundedness. It´s still a fertile time to create, intuit and open yourself up to spiritual experiences as long as you have done the due diligence.

This still applies strongly today – especially as Jupiter also noviles Mars and quintiles Neptune and is activated by the Sun!

Remember that seeds you set feed into 18-year cycles when it comes to eclipses. This Solar Eclipse is lined with others as part of Saros series 12: November 12 1947, November 23 1965, December 4 1983, December 14 2001 – in the past and – January 5 2038, January 16 2056 and so on in the future.

Generally Eclipses have a +/- 1 week of influence in the build-up and build-down to them. Especially if other alignments continue to amplify their energy, e.g. Jupiter-Sun-conjunction and -Mercury – Galactic Center – conjunction later today.

The Jupiter-Sun conjunction (5´14 Capricorn) reinforces the energy of the Eclipse at 18:25 UT, December 27th 2019. Really pay attention to the opportunities of growth that present themselves to you right now and the teachers who come your way.

Remember that growth sometimes requires saying No, and sometimes Yes. It´s not a one-dimensional process.

I want all of you to be especially aware of those seeking to re-assert older power structures, be it to your face, through subtle actions, or through spiritual or energetic methods. No one is here to be harnessed as a battery for others, no matter how convincing their claim to power, authority or ´the greater good´ is.

Before that, we also see Mercury conjunct The Galactic Center (8:32 UT, same day @ 27´7 Sagittarius). This alignment asks us to stay in-tune with our guides and the paths we have chosen and committed ourselves to, especially on November 19, November 23 and December 19. These dates tally with other major alignments to the GC.

Stick with your spiritual practices and whatever has helped you navigate through those dates and be clear in the Path of Truth you wish to walk on.

Keep setting seeds that help you sustain yourself as you contribute to a meaningful sense of legacy in the world.

That doesn´t have to feel overly dramatic, especially if you´ve been working towards it for a while now. It can feel like an anchoring or settling into a particular path you were already on. So no big fireworks for some of you.

That´s not always about being in the public eye (because each chart, and path is different) – it can be about committing to a more focused path of self-care or completing a task before having some well-deserved rest.

It´s tough to generalize this one , and I wont´fall into the trap of equating Cappyness with extremes of work. That´s how we got into this collective mess in the first place (and I cover some of that in the video link above).

Remember that Capricorn is The Sea-Goat.

It´s not just about reaching for the highest summit, it´s about coming at it from a place of deep emotional intensity and focus.

What the ´summit´ is for each person is different.

And of course you can get additional guidance through a session with me if so inclined.

Or you can work it out on your own, up to you.

A SOLSTICE MESSAGE FROM THE SKY PRIESTESS: BUILDING COMMUNITY & SETTING BOUNDARIES

The Sun entering Capricorn has motivated me to look at the energy of what I am building. Whilst this is a personal reflection, the questions raised will speak to all, though our answers will be different.

I address these questions in different ways in the text and the video – one informs and re-inforces the other.

Whilst the energy is going to be really intense for the first few months of 2020, it will open up to new possibilities. Like seeds germinating, it explores new ways of making meaning and expressing itself free from the conceptual baggage of the past.

What is needed is the securing of space, the creation of boundaries, the willingness to protect what needs that space to grow. To say no and keep out that which seeks to disrupt growth of the seed.

People can plant seeds that enrich and nourish a piece of land to render it fertile and biodiverse for years to come.

They can also plant weeds that colonize the place and cast all others out.

What your moral compass is determines what seed you shall be called to plant, what boundaries you are called to uphold in that critical phase of germination and what you hope the outcome will be.

This applies to your personal boundaries, family dynamics, intimate relationships, professional collaborations and community-building.

Generally speaking:

You do not need to include those who disrespect your boundaries or that of the marginalized and disenfranchised.

You do not need to remain in others´ spaces if that is what you are asked to tolerate.

A friendly challenge is always good for growth, but not something that seeks to colonize your soul, purpose and sense of morality.

Everyone will have a different take on what that means for them.

Not everyone will be kind, polite, or gentle when you say No, thank you – or Please, leave.

Ideally, building a safe space, vessel or container should be a hands-on project that receives the investment all those who benefit from it.

What you fill with that space depends on its purpose.

Just remember to replenish it and yourself.

That takes love, attention, nurture, and kindness.

Beauty, friendship, laughter, art, music, community.

Spaces for meaningful collaboration, rather than competition.

But to keep it safe, it also takes a spine.

For the record:

My space is open and welcome to those who seek to include others and understand what it means for the soul to experience itself – as part of a diverse collective – on this Earth.

This is irrespective of their race, gender, sexuality, religion, nationality, ability and so on.

Because every one of us has to do the work.

Not just for ourselves, but for the generations that come after us.

We are faced with the mammoth task of unpacking the ideological, conceptual, political, emotional, karmic & spiritual baggage that has truly created division and legitimized hatred and inequity.

It will take unpacking of privilege & entitlement, much humility and a safe space to begin.

A lot of that is learning to listen to voices who have not had the room to speak.

My key requirement is that people respect that basic rule, respect each other and the work and effort I put into it. And to know that games of rhetoric and false projection will not be tolerated.

It´s fairly simple.

The clarity of vision required came as I began hosting more discussions on topics of inclusivity and social justice, be it on ableism, racism, sexism, decolonization, cultural appropriation, transphobia, and so on.

I saw how the rhetoric of acceptance, New Age spirituality and political correctness was abused to justify hate speech and how anonymity & lack of accountability online fuels it all.

This is not a vanity project for me or something that I do lightly because it´s also my livelihood.

In short, I cannot afford the privilege of virtue signalling on the Internet.

Do remember that.

Creating a safe space for all who seek to include and protect others comes at a financial cost.

I would appreciate more of you who are materially able to contribute to my work and upkeep to begin doing so.

Because there is so much work to be done.

* * *

If you are also creating safe containers for yourselves, your loved ones, your communities: you are taking on a large responsibility.

Do it anyway if that is what you are called to do and not because others expect it of you.

Let people help you when they can and are in alignment to do so.

And people – do not take those who stand up and create these spaces for granted.

No one is owed the free labour of another.

Let us build a world that is safer and kinder for all without the erasure of history, identity and experience in all facets of our lives.

Let us remember – once again – that we are all souls having a human experience on this generous planet.

Blessings – and let´s meet 2020 with integrity, strength and compassion.

DECEMBER 19, 2019: THE POTENTIAL TO PRESS THE COSMIC ´RESET´ BUTTON

December 19th, 2019 can become one of the most powerful days of our existence. In addition to the annual conjunction of the Sun and Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius), we see this alignment activate multiple bodies in the skies in tightly interwoven Yods (Fingers of Fate).

Generally speaking, the Galactic Center allows us to more directly reach our guides and the pathways of experience that lead us to a given Spiritual Truth. It is a morally neutral opportunity because it operates on the principle of Free Will. You cannot take the benevolence of this alignment for granted as it has had mixed results. I know many (but not everyone) found the Pluto-Galactic Center conjunction in 2006-2007 utterly heartbreaking.

I´m going to spend a little time talking about how this alignment has actually led to greater division – simply as there is too much mis-information on it being spread.

The last time that Pluto conjuncted the Galactic Center in recent history was between 1758 (near miss) and 1759 (3 exact alignments at 23 Sagittarius).

1759 saw powerful earthquakes in the Levant region (Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Israel) in October-November of that year that killed thousands (note that the final conjunction was on November 2nd).

1759 was also declared as ´Annus Mirabilis´- a year of miraculous victories for British Troops against French armies in India and North America, thus altering the balance of global power for centuries to come.

Where there were many medical and scientific innovations that came through at the same time, they took place in the context of a global re-structuring of power.

In 2006, ironically, Pluto was downgraded from a planet to a dwarf planet (but I hear it´s been reversed now) and it was the first year a probe (´New Horizons´) was sent to Pluto.

Also in 2006: Saddam Hussein was executed, Google purchased Youtube & Disney bought Pixar (talk about a global restructuring of ´soft´ power), Evo Morales came to power in Bolivia (he lost the support of the police and the military in 2019 – as Jupiter conjuncted the Galactic Center) – and so on.

Similar events occurred in 2007 with the surge of US troops to Iraq, Ukrainian president dissolving Parliament, Pakistan´s president declaring a state of emergency, Bulgaria and Romania joining the EU (raising fears of increased migration in the UK – which without doubt had a factor to play in Brexit and recent results of the general election), the Scottish National Party gaining dominance of the Scottish Parliament and Tony Blair resigning as Prime Minister of the UK.

– – – –

So you can see, it´s not all jellybeans and cream-puffs with the Galactic Center.

I say this because I see a lot of mis-information out there that makes such a claim and can only ask you to arm yourself with knowledge that prevents the romanticization of an open-ended opportunity.

By all means, aim for the best outcome possible: but go in with your eyes and heart WIDE open… and your feet solidly on the GROUND.

The 27-degree mark has already been activated today with Venus and Hermes at 27 Capricorn, inconjunct Sedna (27 Taurus) and opposed Cyllarus (27 Cancer). (There are a lot more bodies that get activated – this is a brief summary).

Pay attention to questions surrounding your value systems, finances, long-term achievement goals, relationships with elders and authority figures: What is coming up for you now?

We also see the Sun at 26 Sagittarius trining Narcissus at 26 Leo today, shining the spotlight on narcissistic behavior in the public eye, politics and leadership. Remember that you can work with this alignment to find a more aligned path of truth – or fall further into self-delusion.

Your guides will help you whichever way you choose to go because … Free Will.

On the 19th , amongst many other activations, we see The Sun and Galactic Center sextiling Psyche (27 Aquarius) exactly. This in itself is an incredible opportunity to look at the way we have collectively agreed to certain types of trials, duality, repression, victimization and so on as part of our journey of ascendance. Because – really – it does not have to be this way. Our collective experience of reality is based on collective agreements on what we experience – at a level that goes well beyond what our conscious minds generally realize is going on. Psyche-Sun-GC actually form a Yod (Finger of Fate – and one of many in the skies on Dec 19th) with Cyllarus and Arachne at 27 Cancer.

The message there is to look before you leap in bursts of emotion and to remember that your emotional navigation can help you weave a reality of your own. Don´t let ego sidetrack you.

A lot of that is also going to (ideally) overturn ideologies that (no matter what their surface polish looks like) end up using the energy of the Feminine as a means to an end. Be it as a sacrifice, facilitator, victim, it´s time to stop allowing energetic patterns that see this archetype in a Functional way. We see it play through various global mythologies and religions.

It helps that asteroid Karma is at 27 Pisces, squaring the Galactic Center – the Moon will be about at 27 Virgo – and so many other alignments that just bring up very tricky and very old karmic agreements. Ixion – The Tyrant – is at 28 Sagittarius – making the theme of political, religious or ideological tyranny deeply salient at this time. Haumea at 27 Libra brings the energy back to the literal Earth and Sedna at 27 Taurus asks us to recognize the body of the dismembered, fragmented Feminine.

Remember that is not exclusively limited to women, as the Feminine is an archetype that cuts across and through and is deeply interwoven with all things and beings!

The 19th is a day where, if we all try

– as a collective filled with the unique light and energy of all individual members consciously directing their intent and free will –

we can hit the cosmic ´reset´ button – or at least set a wave into motion that will!

Be mindful with your thoughts, intentions and actions.

Don´t jump the gun, however triggered you may feel.

Take as much time as you need / can to speak to Spirit and your Guides.

Do not allow others and their agendas of control to distract you.

Do not allow despair or the limitations of conditioning to determine the limits of possibility

Because this alignment goes well beyond what we imagine and experience on a daily basis.

If working as part of the collective sounds like too much, just focus on your personal journey and its evolution.

Plug yourself out of the matrix of collective conditioning. That in itself is a powerful change and creates larger ripples in context.

Look back to precursors of this energy on November 19th (with Jupiter conjunct the Galactic Center) and November 23rd (with Venus on the GC).

Without exaggeration, I see December 19th as the single-most important point of 2019 simply because of its staggering scope for karmic dissolution and energetic reorganization at the Galactic level.

Remember that it comes down to Free Will and choice. Nothing is set in stone. Use your time, your breath, your energy wisely – and when in doubt – just sit with your Heart and let it align with Deeper Spirit.

Blessings and Abundance to All,

PARALLELS OF HISTORY: WILL YOU ENABLE THE PAST OR TAKE A STAND?

  • Australia: Religious Discrimination Bill 2nd draft (Conservative Coalition)
  • UK: Conservative (Tory) win election + public protests ensue, threats to minorities
  • India: Citizenship Amendment Bill (on the basis of religion passed by right-wing religious party) + public protests ensue
  • USA: Don’t get me started.

Yeah …

There’s a lot of overlap here. And not forgetting the ongoing protests and struggles in South America, Hong Kong, the Middle East …..

And massive ecological damage …

The timing of these bills and protests stuck out as sore, concordant thumbs.

This is xenophobia and bigotry mandated by the state. And you can kiss any illusions that they will stop here goodbye.

People get dicey whenever anyone mentions the Holocaust. But here’s why it’s important as a warning.

This is not to say that Jewish lives are more important than anyone else’s…. In fact : Whilst 6 million Jews were killed, 11 million of other ethnicities (Roma, Soviet citizens, Poles, homosexuals, people with disabilities) were also killed.

Please remember that before you jump the gun. In fact, the figures may be even higher.

The reason why the Holocaust is so terrifying is that it was legal, in terms of the machinery of the state – right in the heart of Europe.

This was the continent that brought us modern political philosophies of liberty, liberalism and the humanist tradition.

Whilst there are older traditions and far more ancient kingdoms, the framework for the nation-state and it’s idea of sovereignty arises from the 1648 treaty of Westphalia.

In short, Europe was the birthplace of contemporary political institutions, their scope, language and agency. The same institutions and structures of power that continue to shape the world today.

And it was right there … in the heart of it all … that the Holocaust was allowed to occur.

It is a warning as to what happens when we hand power over to tyrants. And that it can happen anywhere.

We remember it now as a horrifying legacy of history too staggering to fully compute, a monstrosity.

It didn’t start out that way though.

The hate and bigotry was incrementally introduced. Step by step, the stripping away of citizenship, basic human rights, dignities. Each day normalizing the loss of freedoms a little more than the last.

It didn’t happen overnight.

When I think about the migrant children held in camps at the US border, the parallels are too horrible to miss.

In Germany, not every citizen was a Nazi, some stood by and let it happen. There was of course resistance, but also passive allowance.

Their leader was initially seen with admiration for his charisma and ability to quickly rebuild a nation. These were not the ‘villains of Europe’ from the get go.

Hitler won 36% of the vote (2nd highest) in the 1932 German presidential election. He was nominated as Chancellor in a legal way the very next year.

This was not a military coup or random event … This was a very legal transfer of power literally called the Enabling Act of 1933.

Which is why it pays to pay attention to what is happening in the legislature. Politics, whether we like it or not, affects us all.

It’s going to take watchful eyes and engaged action. We must look out for our fellow humans, irrespective of their race or creed.

We must be aware. We must remember that democratic institutions and elections do not always lead to life-affirming political arrangements for all.

That’s one of the biggest myths of democracy. A myth that I feel holds people back from realizing the full horror of what is incrementally getting normalized across the planet.

Despite all this … Despair and disconnection is not the solution.

We must remember that government derives its power from a shared belief in legitimacy amongst the people. And ultimately it is the people who have the power to empower or dissolve an existing political structure.

Part of why things seem so scary and hard to change is because we’ve been conditioned into thinking otherwise.

Speak up. Speak out. Don’t enable these acts of hate with your apathy, silence or passivity.

Take your stand. Make it count. This is the time.

What It Means To Use Your Voice and Change The World

Everyday interactions where showing up and standing up for others makes all the difference in the world. It´s where the transformation of society begins.

There´s been a lot of discussion on this on my Facebook pages, and you can always refer there to see what´s been happening (and the solidarity that has come through) . Here´s a link for you the view it if so inclined: https://web.facebook.com/bairavee.balasubramaniam/posts/2307943482642967

Ultimately, we´re in a time where trying to cater for all through centrism and neutrality means opening those who are more vulnerable / targeted to attack. Your voice is your greatest weapon against oppression in this day and age.

Use it wisely, use it well. Stand up for those you see are being bullied.

Speak with truth. Speak with compassion. Speak with resources that can help.

Blessings,
