Patriarchy is historically and pathetically self-interested. If you’re for it, you might want to question your own interests. The balance of the masculine and the feminine — in each of us — is paramount to all — personally and planetarily. May the Light in all of us reign supreme in its exquisite sense of balance and harmony. When matriarchy and patriarchy are in balance with one another, we’ll talk again. I look forward to those conversations.
