A conversation for the time we’re in! In this moment, the trance of the last 100 years is deeply disturbed. The next steps we take will determine if we are entrained into a new trance… or if we give our children what they need to create a future outside of trance. It really is up to us!
“My son is part of this world (but not of it). There is no escaping exposure to how people out there live. There is no sheltering him from finding out what goes on in this world. How people are treated. How people treat each other. How we treat animals and Gaia. There is no sheltering him from the “use your words” mentality, or the “good boy” bullshit. There is no way to not expose him to “who’s boss and it ain’t you” patriarchal god-as-superior-so-know-your-place stuff.
And I don’t want to shelter him from the truth of what goes on in the world. I am not the lie-to-your-kid type mother. I am the tell-the-truth-because-it’s–the-only-thing-that-will-set-you-free type mother.” (Stela Shakti)
