Earlier this week, I discussed the power of the sacred feminine and its potential to liberate human beings, and animals, in my ongoing Vegan Anarchy series. In this post, I'm going to take a look at the imperative role of the sacred masculine principle within the anarchist and vegan movements of today.
“In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act”. - George Orwell
Anarchists, in their understanding and application of the non-aggression principle, receive the strength and inspiration they need from the supreme Goddess, the mother of creation, to continue in their arduous pursuit of a world without masters or rulers. A world where each human being is respected as sovereign and one in which men and women treat all human beings as brothers and sisters of one divine family.
But it is important, especially for those who consider themselves activists, to recognise the infinite power of the sacred masculine principle and its crucial role in establishing freedom on Earth. The passive, nurturing and receptive qualities of the feminine must work in union with the active, emissive and assertive qualities of the masculine.
A small minority of anarchists refusing to participate in the political arena is not enough to plant the seeds of change and create the world in which we all want to live. Anarchists must harness that burning desire for freedom, innate within each one of us, to actively spread the message of liberty and sew the seeds of true freedom in the minds and hearts of our brothers and sisters.
If you know the truth, you must stir up the powerful forces and currents of the divine masculine and use it in conjunction with the sacred feminine.
In other words, speak the truth to others.
Get active. Get engaged. Speak the truth through art. Joke about it through comedy. Embed it in your music. Write about it on Steem. Shout it through a megaphone if you must. Whatever you do, know that whenever you speak this eternal truth to others you call upon the great revolutionaries of the past. Those immortalised men, women and children who laid down their lives in the name of freedom. By illuminating and awakening the minds of others you join the ranks of those courageous pioneers who dared to declare their sovereignty and independence. Who dared to stand up to the tyrants and say, 'NO! You are not the boss of me!'
The same message is true of vegans. It takes integrity to radically change one's lifestyle and diet in the name of truth and morality. It takes courage to speak it to others.
You've become aware of the horrors of industrialised farming and have withdrawn your support from the abhorrent meat and dairy industries. You've reignited the divine feminine spark within your own soul by emphasising with the billions of creatures pre-destined for slaughter. Their crys and screams have stirred something within your soul and awakened a new level of compassion and understanding. A sudden, unexpected shift in consciousness has forced you to see the world from an entirely new perspective. No longer do you see 'happy meals' or 'laughing cows'. But you hear their crys and feel their pain. You feel anger, disgust and shame for having participated in such barbarism and cruelty. You look upon your fellow man in astonishment as he unconsciously eats the body parts of some forgotten animal. A piece of cow, pig, or chicken that was once a living, whole, innocent being. A being that wanted to live. But then you remember that you were once in his shoes. You were once a rampant consumer of cruelty and death, but something happened. Something changed.
But now what?
It is important to channel this inner anger and sorrow into something productive, and potentially beneficial, for the animals: Perhaps art, music, writing or video production is your creative outlet. Perhaps it's standing outside of slaughterhouses with banners and signs, or marching in protest in the city centres. Whatever it is, find your creative muse and cultivate it. Find the activity that is best suited to your temperament and educate others on the inherent cruelty in animal agriculture.
Knowing the truth is only the beginning. The journey begins when you speak the truth and educate others. You've awakened the inner feminine, and now it's time to unite with the inner masculine in sacred communion.
It's time for all of us, vegans and anarchists, servants of truth, to participate in The Great Work of educating and awakening our fellow humans to the cosmic moral laws inherent in creation. Our actions have consequences, and we can no longer continue on this path of death and destruction if we want to leave a world behind for our children. The time is now. The revolution is upon us.
Let's get to work.
