She has Returned

The very first time I heard Bernie Sanders speak, I knew who he was

knew the energy he was representing

knew that he was being fed from the same wellspring of evolving consciousness by which so many of us have been being fed lately on this planet.

This wellspring offers the energy of community

fellowship

kinship

unity

wellness.

It offers the energy of equality

equanimity

truth

justice.

It offers the energy of love.

 

In a civilization that values profit about all else

this energy becomes revolutionary

but it is not by nature.

By nature, this energy is evolutionary.

There is only so long that we can continue to stumble blindly upon the Earth

eating her up faster than she can feed us

and creating so much suffering for ourselves, our kin in the community of life, and our future generations.

So it is not only unsurprising,

but also necessary

and expected

that as we approach this inevitable turning point as a species

voices carrying this energy would rise louder than ever before.

 

Bernie is a prophet.

Many of us are ready for a leader like him.

Many of us have been praying for leadership like his.

But we find ourselves on a cusp in human collective consciousness

and if we really get present

and feel, intuitively, not mentally, the energy of the planet

and the energy of humanity

and the energy of this country

we will likely feel that the tipping point in this change

beyond which we no longer need war

beyond which we no longer need poverty

beyond which we no longer need violence and control

this tipping point has not fully been crossed by the whole of our people.

We are, right now, standing in the crossroads.

 

What impatient creatures we can be!

And rightfully so, as the very lives and freedom of our brothers and sisters and children are at stake.

When we get a glimpse of where we are going

we want to be there immediately.

But are we here?

Are we present for the path from past to future?

Are we NOW?

For it is from this very place that we are able to be the most potent agents of change.

 

I advocated and believed deeply in the presidency of Bernie Sanders.

And yet, it has become clear that this is not what the energy of the planet is calling forth at this time.

Not yet.

Today, it is calling forth something else.

 

Through this election process, my rage and disdain has been provoked by and directed towards Hillary Clinton, probably even more so than Donald Trump, who has been far easier for me to simply dismiss

and I have seen the same in so many of my brothers and sisters.

We all carry a deep, underlying rage for the patriarchy, this imperialist, capitalist, mysoginist, racist captivity we have been inflicting upon ourselves for 1000s of years as a species

and we all carry a disdain for those in the public sphere that appear to embody or represent it.

Many of us have come to expect and even accept seeing this in men

but seeing all of this represented in a woman-bodied human reveals this rage and disdain in a way far more provocative than seeing it represented in male-bodied leaders ever has before.

When a woman

a daughter of the same patriarchy of which we have all been born at this point

stands and reflects these energies

we hate her even more deeply than we do the men we’ve come to expect it from.

 

I am guilty of this.

And I am sorry.

Hillary Clinton, I am sorry.

Women, I am sorry.

To all my sisters and brothers, I am sorry.

 

It is now time for us to take altitude

to zoom out and see the larger picture.

What is coming to pass on this planet beneath the surface is the tipping of the scales and the rebalancing of the masculine and feminine energies which have been severely out of balance for millennia.

What is coming to pass is that a woman is going to step into the apex of power of this civilization.

And in the symbolic, archetypal dimension

this step is an unbelievably transformative, powerful, and revolutionary moment.

 

This is a medicinal moment for humanity.

 

This statement is not an ignoring of Hillary Clinton’s sins or ignorances or dangerous choices or allegiances

nor is it a free pass for her to lead without continued immense pressure from those of us she leads to make choices that honor life, peace, people, and planet

but even with all of her shadows out in the light

Hillary Clinton is holding within her body right now an apex of the return of the Feminine

a center point of the tipping of the scales back into balance on planet Earth.

 

 

We have been praying for this moment

for Her return

the return of Woman to her rightful place in the leadership council of our people.

We have been seeing this prayer being answered in all realms of our society as women have stepped into more and more roles of power

as women leaders in something like 22 nations have stepped into the helm

as countless mothers, sisters, and grandmothers have heeded the call from the Earth and stood up.

Many of us have raised a prayer and called for a grandmother to come and rebalance the scales here, too.

Well my family, she has arrived.

Love her or hate her, a grandmother has arrived and is actually positioned to lead this nation.

How have we received her?

She didn’t show up with an angelic grace

she didn’t show up carrying a lamb

she didn’t show up pure as snow

she didn’t even show up coming around the mountain riding 6 white horses.

And if she did, would she have made it this close to the gate?

No.

She showed up with blood on her hands

She showed up with battle scars

with mistakes made

with lies told

with promises broken.

 

But

she did show up.

 

And we have been turning our backs to her.

We have been scolding her.

We have been shaming her

threatening her

abusing her.

We have been hating her.

 

The Goddess has many forms.

Woman has many forms.

She has walked through 1000s of years of oppression and dominion and warfare

and she has not come out unscathed.

Not by a longshot.

But she was carried through nonetheless

and she is standing on our door

and now is our time

our opportunity

to welcome her in

with love

and warmth

and celebration.

 

And with Forgiveness.

For we, too, all have blood on our hands.

And it is only with forgiveness present that she has the opportunity to heal

and it is only with forgiveness present that we have the opportunity to heal

and together go forth and create a new world.

 

I forgive you Hillary Clinton.

I forgive you grandmother

I forgive you Woman.

I forgive you Man.

I forgive your unwellness

I forgive mine

Madam President, Grandmother Hillary Clinton

What a time to be alive on Earth.

We have much to grieve, much to celebrate, and much work to do.

May we continue to walk behind a prayer for peace, harmony, truth, justice, and love  to reign.

 

I’m with her.

*Author’s note, added three months after original post, on the eve of the 2016 election:

To think that a woman preaching “peace, people, and planet” could ascend to the presidency of a military-industrialist corporate-oligarchy so steeped in patriarchy that no woman has held the position in its 200+ year history, before a woman that is speculated to have played just as dirty as the men and played by the secret rules of getting ahead in the system, seems truly absurd and deliriously impatient. And when the future female presidents, who actually are openly aligned with peace, people, and planet inevitable arrive, they will surely know they would not have had a chance to walk through the gates unless Hillary Clinton, or some woman just like her, had spent a lifetime being absolutely vilified and hated for being a woman reaching for the highest position in the world, and succeeding. Evidence that no woman could get even remotely this close to the Oval Office without doing every single shady thing Hillary has possibly done in her career is that she is the only woman to have gotten even remotely this close. I am wholeheartedly excited that she will win the election tomorrow, not because I have some delusion that she is going to do all the work for us of defeating the corporate, military stranglehold that our nation suffers from, or elevate our indigenous kin and brothers and sisters of color out of their systemic oppression and into their rightful place in our national family and leadership, but because it is time for women to start leading this nation, and we must start where we are, and where we are is with Hillary Clinton. May she be the first in a long, glorious string of women presidents we elect that will slowly but surely redirect our sick nation into a future of true peace, sustainability, wellness, and freedom.

May peace reign on Earth.

  1. I don’t object to a woman President. I do object to this evil, self promoting, lying ,scumbag that left 4 Americans to die and then tried to dismiss it with a lie.

    1. Perhaps if congress had approved additional funds to protect those people they might still be alive, but that wasn’t done. Plus Chris Stevens knew the danger when he went there to meet his destiny. All the so call lies and propaganda about her is just that propaganda. Do your homework Frank. You might be surprised.

  2. You’re kidding right! Ridiculous to believe that Hillary is interested in embracing the cannons of your lovely thoughts. So sad that anyone would fall for the thought that Hillary is even able to do the right thing. Quit living in a dream world. Phony is phony! Trump is rough around the edges, but all the crap that they are throwing at him is amazing. He reinvented the Republican Party and tells it like it is, Bernie Sanders tried to do the same, Hillary is so corrupt she stole the vote and Bernie literally sold out! The joke will be on anyone who votes for Hillary!

    1. The joke will be on you and the country if Trump wins. After all he is the anti-Christ. He has divided this country so much that it hard to say it will ever be repaired. His hatred and disrespect for people is there plain to see. He doesn’t even hide it. And yet you believe in him. His job here was to destroy the republican party and he has done that. Bernie had a different job and he has done it well and will continue to do what he is supposed to do. Hillary will be a good president simply because she loves this country and will keep it strong. She is strong. Look at all she has faced. I’m sure its difficult for anyone to have all the things Trump says. He speaks out of the side of his mouth and there is no truth there. He cheats people out of money owed just so he can keep his money. Sorry for you. You can’t seem to see the reality in front of you.

  3. This was all fine until you went on that we are mory angry ay her because she is a momsn. False! We are more angry. ecause we know more today because of the onternet. We are more angry at her then Bush because we knew that Bush and Cheney are republican and she behaves just as bad. If we knew as much now as we did about Bill we would be angry at him too. Stop putting the male/women thing into this and look at the product. I look forward to Tulsi Gabbards running the country.

  4. Thank you tribeofdreams, this piece threw me back on myself and caused a shift. Dear Madam President, Grandmother Hillary Clinton, may you wear it well.

  5. I wholeheartedly agree with the premise here. What amazes me the most is the embodiment She has taken. We are being called to a level of forgiveness unlike ever before, so it is with that I forgive myself for being so gullible to receive the lie of feminism as the representation of Her, the Goddess. I find Her principles to start with foundational truth that guides the heart of the body representing Her and though the anatomically correct body is present the heart guiding it feels anything but Her Divine Feminity. Truth requires courage to call a wolf a wolf even when it’s wrapped in sheeps clothing.

  6. So we’re supposed to worship Hillary as a goddess now? Please. You do know that other women are running for president, most notably Jill Stein. It’s fine to play dress up and religion and all that, but the president is not a religious figure. You making her one is dangerous and ignorant.

    It also violates the separation of church and state.

    How about spending your time teaching planned parenthood as the population is growing at three additional people per second on this planet.

    Hillary is a goddess incarnate. That’s really messed up. I would love to hear someone say that to her and watch what happens. Does that make Chelsea like a demi-goddess to be worshipped as well. And Bill is like what? Zeus? Jesus? Help me out here.

  7. This our photo. This is our message. Just get it out there…Boycott his name and mugshot. Stop giving him free publipublicity… We need to focus on the positive messages from Hillary. It’s marvellous that she is so intelligent, articulate and experienced. But the reality is she often comes across as too much so….Millions of us Americans have been reduced to sound bites. We need short inspiring sound bites. Not negative stuff. Bernie stuff. Inspiring stuff….Remember the Republican guy who became President, whose only sound bite was “it’s the Economy,(stupid). It wasn’t the Economy but it was played enough times that the majority believed it. The usual happened i.e. The Republicans came out to vote in droves and many Demcratics couldn’t get off the couch…Time to break the mould. Even if you don’t give a dam about the US, spare a thought for the children of the world. They will suffer the most if he gets in….. And Hillary is definitely in the danger zone. Every vote truly counts. Polls are notoriously wrong. We need to stop the boasting about how far ahead Hillary is. Instead get every last person to VOTE.

  9. What hypocrisy from the writer. Equating in her esoteric language Clinton to Bernie……a political gimmick to get spiritually inclined people to vote for Clinton. Did you get paid? Or you just forget to look at the Wikileaks – no matter where they come from – or the donations taken by Clinton Foundation?

    Were you really awakened you would show championship for Jill Stein (who expresses the same morality of Bernie). But that is not your motive. You want power. You know that Clinton has a best chance to get to power, so you try to package a manipulative, unawakened woman as a noble soul.

    If you are indeed spiritual, remember the Universal law………..you get what you deserve.

  10. Like her or not, she is your next President of the United States. Jill Stein is not. Vote for Jill, or Bernie. Hillary is a woman who has devoted her life to politics…long before some of you were born.

    Exploring Clinton’s early career reignites understanding of her true sense of humanity. The world is not ready ready for Bernie. Yet. Or apparently Jill. So for those die-hard fans, I expect you will devote the next 4 years of your life canvassing for those you give thumbs up to. Personally, Bernie was my choice, but learning more about Hillary, the “unfit Mother, Grandmother, Politician, I know she has worked her ass and stayed focus on her passion. She is brilliant, informed, been through the trenches and ready to take on the task. When people say she is the less of 2 evils, I think for Christ sake, Donald Trump doesn’t have a clue in the political climate. NO! She is not the lesser of two evils. She is at this point the only choice. Like it or not, pull up your boot straps and hold on…cause America is ready for a woman named Hillary. The imperfect. The nasty. The bad mother. The one who will shift America to the feminine. With Bernie behind her.

    {A student at Yale Law School in the 1970s, Clinton attended a speech by activist Marian Wright Edelman; – Edelman’s message had a major impact on her. Clinton secured a grant to intern for Edelman, then spent her summer collecting information from interviews that supported health policy for migrant workers. In 1972, her work with Edelman zeroed in on children: Clinton’s initial undercover investigation of school segregation in the South led ultimately to a position with the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF).After Clinton’s time at CDF, she went on to be a congressional committee aide in D.C. and worked at a private law firm in Arkansas, but The Boston Globe reported that she remained committed to helping kids. She served as chairman of the CDF board for years; And though her career didn’t focus solely on young people, she still advocated on behalf of children throughout her time in politics.}

    1. The world wasn’t ready for Hillary, either. Apparently her lies and corruption were too much to cancel out the rest of anything she did that may have been good.

  11. Wow all that. I do agree that it is time for woman to rise again. Yes, Hillary is not perfect but none of us are perfect either. We all make mistakes and usually are forgiven for those mistakes. I believe the bible says “Judge not lest ye be judged”. Why is it several of you do not want to forgive Hillary for the mistakes she has made. You are entitled to either like or dislike her but let us be more flexible. Hillary has taken more condemnation than any man would get. And I’m sure it hurts. People strike out without thinking of what their words mean and do. Our country at this time is deeply divided and has been since the civil war. DT has encouraged this, and racism. He has a job to do and that is to destroy the GOP as it is. Bernie Sanders was not meant to be President at this time. He was needed to wake up a different part of this country and to support Hillary. I’m sorry but JS is not on my good side. She went up to the DOPL and spray painted contractors equipment. That is not what this protest is about. Our country is changing very fast. This Water protest is the first time Native People have united in a common cause. Not just for themselves but for everyone. Change being the only permanent thing in our lives. We must continue or destroy ourselves. We have allowed industry and money bring us down. Hillary is just what we need. She has a purpose and will work hard to protect and preserve our rights. She will be a President for all people regardless of race or religion. Do not believe all the propaganda you see or read. Do your homework. Together we are stronger. A’ho.

  12. Truly touching. I was also a Bernie supporter. But I am excited about Hillary being our next President and I feel she is highly qualified and will do a great job. One thing very admirable about her, is her willingness to admit to mistakes she has made and change her mind for the good of the people when she thinks that she can actually do something to effect the change needed. Thanks for writing this, it totally touched my heart

    1. Admit to her mistakes? Change her mind? Hmmmm. I haven’t heard her take responsibility for anything she’s done. She’s reaping what she sowed now.

  13. Thoughtful and deep however I’m looking more towards a hard wired cultural Mother Complex as the reason so many young women both in the past when Hillary first ran and in the present.

  14. By and large, those who continue to insist Hillary is basically evil, have not experienced and will never, ever understand the scorn that men, as a group, have inflicted upon any woman who has tried to rock the boat of their inbred superiority.

  15. I think for the rebalancing you are talking about that Jill Stein would be a far better choice than the Evil queen Hellary to plunge us even deeper into the morass that has been initiated by the club she is an integral part of

    1. But Jill Stein will not and cannot win. That is the point of this essay. Only a woman such as Hillary could win right now. And only if we transform ourselves with forgiveness can she be transformed and then a Jill Stein (although I prefer Elizabeth) could win in the future. Hillary is not only our future but she is a bridge to it. Also, how do you feel about Obama? If you object to anything Hillary did as Secretary of State, then you should dislike Obama as much for it as you do Hillary. She could only act as SOS with his direction and consent. Finally, Jill Stein has undergone no vetting or trial by fire. John Oliver criticized her and her response was reminiscent of Trump. We know nothing of her temperament under pressure. Neither does she.

      1. “Transform ourselves with forgiveness”. What the eff does that actually mean? Closing your eyes to the damage she has done to women? “Forgiving” her for criminal acts that you have no jurisdiction over? Just because you forgive her for compromising national security, or allowing 4 men to be killed in Benghazi, does not mean she will simply “rise above” and do good. It means you are intentionally blinding yourself to her extreme acts of treason.

        The voters have spoken. None of this mother-goddess shit.

      2. Your negativity and poison seems typical of reductionist thinking, the very thing that allowed a totally unqualified candidate to fool so many people. Let’s see what the recount says.

  16. Thank you. A strength of the feminine is the ability to change your mind when presented with new and better ideas. Hillary has shown that she is able to do that over the years. I don’t understand all of the people who are so sure she is a liar – I haven’t seen that in her career. I see someone who has been open to hearing multiple points of views and changing direction when appropriate. She has always supported children, women, and families. Why is it that when a strong woman is seen as succeeding in life and politics that that is a negative but when a man does it it’s seen as a positive. I’m voting for Hillary and I think she will be a great president!!

    (as an aside – the only person in Congress who voted against Bush’s Iraq war was Rep. Barbara Lee – a very brave and strong woman from Berkeley/Oakland, California)

  17. How many of us have been the object of public scorn year after year for decades? That Hillary can still stick her neck out shows she has male energy by courageously fight and feminine energy by graciously ignoring, possibly forgiving the hoards of haters who’ve shouted “murderer, criminal, heartless bitch” without ever having factual evidence. That she is hugely ambitious as heck is both a fact and a necessity. Consider this: just as Barack Obama was half White and half Black helped him get elected when an all-black man might not have made it. That Hillary embodies so much male energy helps her in the same way. My opinion. Yet it is the male energy side of her so many people dislike.

  18. that was a beautiful piece someone started tis thread with.. but i cannot let the beauty and magnanimity of those words turn me into a sheeple. not when there is another woman who makes a lot more sense to me. until a couple of weeks ago, i was in agony trying to figure out who was the lesser of two evils. it was making me ill! and then just the right article about jill stein came into my box and i discovered what i want! then i read and watched all i could and i actually became excited at the possibilities! my angst went away. i knew i could vote my conscience, feel good about it! i’m old enough and experienced enough to not be swayed but pretty words and joining the swell of feminine emotion just because it’s feminine and has all the catch words. i actually feel GOOD voting for jill. she doesn’t have to be a goddess to me. she’s a real woman with a woman’s heart and mind. and if she doesn’t win?? well i have turned it over to god(goddess, if you’d rather).i’m sure there’s a higher being capable enough to sort thru the mess and give us what we need. that way i don’t have to have all the answers. the changes we need aren’t going to come about as fast as we’d like anyway. i think there’s a better chance by giving jill her 5% so the foundation can be well installed for next term. blessings everyone! thanks for the viewpoints!
