The internet is awash with articles, videos, podcasts, and art depicting and discussing the deteriorating Sacred Feminine Principle. I’ve posted two blog articles here, and here myself about the very same topic. The impact of what I call the fake feminist agenda is certainly a concern for women, however the effect that it is having on the male population is also extreme and disturbing. Lacking a true connection with the major tenants of the feminine aspect of consciousness; care, creation and intuition easily enables men to be fooled into adopting misaligned masculine characteristics.
“Be A Man”
In our current system, boys and men are indoctrinated with the belief that to “be a man”, they must show strength by imposing the force of their will onto others. Power is the utmost expression of manliness. Financial success, physical size and fitness, sexual adroitness, and the ability to conquer are all stereotypical qualities associated with what our society deems a “powerful man”.
The true Male archetype has been depicted through history in many ways. My preferred allegory is the King archetype, which is epitomized by four lesser (but equally important) paradigms; the Warrior, the Hunter, the Magician, and the Lover. The King is the leader and encompasses all of the other properties embodies by the four lesser models.
The Warrior is the defender of morality. He upholds the non aggression principle, while asserting the doctrine of self defence. A very basic example of this ideology is: “Do not violate the rights, property, or physical bodies of other people; but always, when your own rights, property, or physical body is being violated or under threat, use the appropriate amount of force to end the violence or threat.” The Warrior manifests equally strength, self discipline, and virtue.
The Hunter is a demonstration of a man’s ability to provide for the needs of his family. It is an especially visible evaluation of his work ethic, physicality, and intellectual abilities. It is up to a man, as a protector to ensure the safety of his family and his property, but also to provide a safety net for his loved ones. The Hunter’s family trusts in his ability to provide and protect; they are comforted by the balance of his un-wielding strength and constant dependability. The Hunter is the personification of a family’s security.
The Sage, sometimes known as the Magician, is the inquisitive and reasonable problem solver. He is able to connect with both the physical and the spiritual world in a neutral fashion so as to gain reliable insights and perspectives into big picture matters. The Sage is not easily swayed by beguilers because he has a firm understanding of truth and integrity. He is confident in his problem solving and creative ingenuity.
The Lover is a representation of a man’s emotions, ideologies, passion, and the love for his family and friends. He is empathic with others and able to revel in all of life’s pleasures. An intense drive and enthusiasm for self improvement are the main standards upheld by him. The Lover is spurred on by the love he has for his family and his willingness to provide for them.
The King expresses all of the precepts exhibited by the four subjacent symbols of the Masculine Principle. Like the Warrior, he protects and maintains order by upholding truth and morality. He is depended on, and trusted to provide for his kingdom, as is the Hunter. The King is sure of his convictions and in the manner of the Sage, is a clear sighted judge and visionary. His drive and ambition to sustain a flourishing life for himself and his loved ones are driven by the Lover’s traits.
The sacred aspects of the true Masculine Principle have been warped by a tyrannical elite class. Going back for thousands of years, history has been a story of the authoritarian “masculine” elite dominating the debased “feminine” masses. These powers that should not be have duped our men into believing the lies that the mainstream media is propagating about manliness. We are raising a generation of boys who are being systemically brainwashed into becoming order following dominators. Losing touch with their ability to rationalize and think critically in favour of blind order following has become the only way for a man to climb the proverbial ladder to success, recognition, and respect. We are all stuck in a hierarchal world, we are all being dominated and controlled, including other dominators – it is just a chain of command. Nevertheless, with personal responsibility, respect, and honour, we are able to break our co-dependency on high level tyrants in order to realize the full potential of our collective consciousness.
There are many other researchers who have a great understanding of the negative forces influencing the world’s collective consciousness. Sunyata Satchitana is a spiritual counsellor who has written extensively about the Divine Masculine here: http://sunyatasatchitananda.com/divine-masculine/.
