I am disgusted, saddened, and outraged by the racist and ignorant immigrant bill just signed into law by the Arizona governor, Jan Brewer—although sadly not surprised. I choose the word “immigrant” and not “immigration” on purpose because we are talking about very real people’s lives, not just some process. It is supported and was signed into law by a woman. And now, she follows that up with reversing the law that provides benefits to domestic partners. A woman who has obviously lost touch with the Divine Feminine—proof that just because someone has either female or male genitalia does not in itself mean anything.
The Divine Feminine is about caring and nurturing, inclusivity, partnership, and community. The Divine Feminine sees the interrelationship and interrelatedness of all life. The Divine Masculine is about serving and protecting these facets of the Divine Feminine. In this way, all is in balance or seeking balance. Unfortunately, the feminine and masculine when not in Divinity is out of balance and can be highly destructive as we see with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, and with the horrible environmental policies and push and same War language as Bush from Obama. When not held to account for our highest selves, we all are one choice away from being incredibly destructive.
Thankfully, there are courageous people in politics standing up against the racist and hateful policies of Jan Brewer, including San Francisco Mayor, Gavin Newsom who has put a moratorium on city officials travelling to Arizona on any city business and is looking into how to create a city-wide boycott against Arizona in as many ways as possible to take a stand against this woman’s destructive policies.
The Disease of Disconnect is dangerous and powerful. This is our calling to be even more committed to living lives of healing and connection wherever and however we can—from our daily choices to taking to the streets to looking at our comfort zones and being willing to challenge ourselves to grow beyond our fear to live lives of powerful service.
Love in Action,
