In regards to the movement #womenarenotmeat
The ads, movies, commercials, women genital / facial mutilations, throwing of acid on face / body with intent to deform, domestic violence action against women (and men), dehumanizing, and so on degrading women (and men) are symptoms of what is going on in our world today.
All of the above are NOT the root of the problem.
We, women (and men), need to realize that we are also responsible for this happening as we have been standing idly by; by being silent, being competitive with / looking down / degrading / gossiping about / comparing / minimizing other women (and men) and ourselves to make ourselves feel good, to make / allow men and women to LIKE and USE; NOT LOVE us based on our negative and abusive behavior towards ourselves and each other.
Not to mention, allowing men and women to treat us thusly by these three vastly outdated statements / beliefs: “boys will always be boys,” “women are always mean and / or jealous of other women,” and also not to mention using religion as “this has always been the way based on our religious beliefs” for atrocious actions against young girls and women (and young boys / men) – those are LIES we tell each other and ourselves because we feel “powerless” in the face of these three seemly innocuous statements / beliefs.
I’m here to state: WE ARE NOT POWERLESS! We have always had power to CHANGE and CREATE but we were too afraid of what others thought of us as we ALL want to be ACCEPTED AND LOVED. So we would do whatever it takes to be loved and accepted.
There is no need to do whatever it takes as we have ALWAYS BEEN LOVED AND ACCEPTED by our own Spirit and our Creator!
We have also allowed men and women to objectify us into just a few parts instead of viewing us as whole woman (and man) and ignoring what lies within beyond the exterior. Now, far too many young girls and women (and young boys / men) believe that we have to dress either practically naked or completely covered to be noticed and respected by men and women. When the truth is, when we do that, men and women do not respect us nor do we respect ourselves because we perpetuate the idea of our body, our specific parts, and our appearance / clothes are what makes us women (and men) and that is vastly far from the truth.
WE ARE NOT INCLUDING LOVE IN ANYTHING: this is the root of the problem.
It’s time for young girls / boys, and men / women of all ages to stand up and say ENOUGH! through our actions. Start raising ourselves to love and respect ourselves before we can expect love or respect from others. It always begins within first. How can we expect respect and love from others if we will not do that for ourselves first?
Girls and women (and boys / men), please stop giving away what is sacredly yours and creating children without Divine Love in the hopes you gain love and respect willy nilly – it doesn’t work that way! We each are a Sacred Divine gift for ourselves and your Beloved One.
For men and women who have children, teach BOTH boys and girls to respect and love themselves within and that will automatically translate to the outer world and change has already happened when LOVE is part of all things.
Lastly, can you imagine 7 Billion plus human beings regardless of what gender they are, if they all have love and respect for themselves first and for each other, then we wouldn’t see any of these things we see in today’s world? Nobody would be busy trying to be unauthentic, conform, fit in, distract themselves from their true potential, skills, and talents that they can each contribute to the world for the better and living their purpose here on this beautiful Mother Earth. Let your inner Light SHINE!
LOVE YOURSELF AND EACH OTHER!
Written with much Alofas (LOVE) <3
