Balancing the opposites – Patriarchy vs Matriarchy

“It is adamant that we turn away from the power-crazy, destructive perception, which in our global society has gone to extreme, which means unearthing and redirecting our focus into the opposite direction.“That means, even though the goal is balance, there first has to happen a turning; in this case from a materialistic society dominated by the masculine principle, to rekindle the values inherent in the feminine principle. Hence I endeavour to contemplate the feminine principle however not in isolation but with the awareness of, and in dialogue with, the masculine. This means we cannot talk about driving out the patriarchal and installing a matriarchal society, but we need to move to the next level up, where both energies (the masculine and the feminine) contribute to a society of harmony and peace; where co-operation in love and respect is the goal; not the survival of the strongest, most scrupulous and ruthless.”
