By separating the contemplative/unitive thinkers
into monastic communities, Institutional Churches
were able to continue in their rationalistic/dualistic/modus operandi
and the status quo was preserved – no transformation necessary.
However now inter-spirituality is spreading –
world religions are sharing experiences of unity consciousness
an inevitable part of the world’s move
towards multiculturalism/globalization/the theosphere:
God as All in All.
Even political action can be spiritual:
elevating humans as daughters/sons of God
liberating them from the old gods of lust/greed/power/war –
the gods which toxic masculinity worships.
Toxic masculinity/patriarchy continues because:
homophobia prevents deep male-to-male relationships
men confuse spirituality with religion and flee from it
bar mitzvahs and confirmation are inadequate
rites of passage/initiation rites for males in the postmodern world.
The male unconscious is not concerned with moral injunctions
but does try to balance whatever is happening
in the conscious male, and soften his toxic masculinity:
a man who defines himself as a righteous male
dreams about a degenerate woman –
the unconscious is not telling him to avoid this type of woman –
it is telling him he is this woman – he and her are one.
If he owns his shadow, it softens his heart.
In the past, those promoting morals and ethics
were unaware of the power of the male shadow
and alienated it further by labeling it “evil.”
But in the new quantum/unitive theology
what morality consists in
is full integration of the shadow
all the way from the personal to the global –
the global shadow, not admitting
humanity’s brokenness yet oneness
results in war and climate change.
War will never cease, God’s good Earth will never turn green
till the Global Shadow/Patriarchy is owned.
