We watch you and stay with you as you transit this passage of change and discomfort. All is well, dear ones; we promise that all is occurring as foretold. Many changes are on the horizon, so to speak, and adjusting to them will take your committed focus. We say this not to create fear but to reassure you that all continues exactly as it should.
The Misguided Masculine continues to resist facing his own shadow and owning responsibility for where he finds himself. Power acts as an intoxicant and does indeed corrupt absolutely. His resistance is exacerbated by the kernel of knowledge within him that tells him that his actions are wrong. This knowledge infuriates him and scrapes raw the wound within.
This dynamic plays out in each of you. The Misguided Masculine occurs not only in the faces you see on the news and around you but also within yourselves. Your reaction to all you have seen and experienced regarding this dynamic throughout your lifetime creates a sinkhole of shadow beliefs, resentments and even victimhood.
Step away from what you see out there and look within yourself to the storylines you have created around this dynamic. Do you feel powerless? Are you angry and resentful? Do you feel victimized by circumstances within your life? Do you tell yourself you are not good enough? If so, examine why and how you came to feel this way, for here lies the blessed wisdom hidden within your own Misguided Masculine. Be scrupulous in your examination, for nothing less than complete humility and honesty is required to return the Misguided Masculine to Sacred and Whole status.
Your Observer Self must be vigilant, watching and examining every encounter with others, every conversation within your self, any bit of storyline you have incorporated into your own personal myth. It is not enough to stand by and watch the Patriarchy crumble. Each of you must do your own inner work so that the Sacred Masculine arises from the ashes of the Patriarchy, in true Phoenix fashion.   Embrace the fire, for it leads you home.
