Feminism: Is it the Balancing Factor to raise human consciousness?
by Kay Urlich (Part 1 of 2)
If you’ve ever watched child development documentaries you will have
witnessed how easily and completely a young child engages in physical
reality. Everything a child sees and experience’s is taken at face
value. For example, when a small child is shown one piece of chocolate
and that piece is cut in two right in front of its eyes, the child will
in all likelihood believe they have just received more chocolate: small
children soon learn that two things are more than one and they trust
what they see as literal truth.
A very small child does not consider the ‘intent to deceive’ whether it
is consciously or unconsciously applied; it is innocently happy whether
its rewards come from a loving parent, or those with less altruistic
I’m sure you know the saying ‘Trust in god, but lock up your camel’.
While having faith in the goodness of humanity plus understanding that
there are both positive and negative motives behind people’s intentions,
we learn as we grow older to question what we see before us; we come to
see that what is perceived as more might actually mean we are receiving
less. We learn not to trust blindly the literal view from politicians,
television or newspapers, which are known to not necessarily pass on the
full facts; we come to understand there are other factors at work
whether we are aware of them or not.
For instance, let’s take at face value the statement, that women on the
Domestic Purpose Benefit (DPB) are ruining the country. And if a
politician tells us they’re making changes to improve the system, such
as sending beneficiaries to work or making cuts to their benefit; should
we take it to understand that they are helping them, while at the same
time saving tax payers some hard earned money?.
Sometimes it’s true, some beneficiaries should be getting off the
benefit, they should be working harder, and many people who are working
very hard should be paid more. But what do you do when no matter how
hard you work in a paid job, or how frugal you are as a beneficiary, you
are not valued for what you do financially or otherwise, more so in a
structure that systematically fails people.
Most people think it’s their own fault, they feel rejected and
down-heartened believing that they have failed.
After a violent marriage and messy divorce, and with four children,
Margaret was grateful to be receiving the Domestic Purpose Benefit. When
the children all started school she applied for and got a job for twenty
hours a week. Margaret knew her DPB would be cut, but never mind she
told herself, I’m ensuring our future by gaining work skills, plus
earning an extra thirty dollars a week. It’s not much, but it’s paying
for my transport and parking costs. However, after a few months Margaret
was informed that going to work was secondary income. She found that she
was making no money at all; part-time work was in fact costing her an
extra $30.00 a week in taxes - which she now had to pay back.
As observers we are not privy to the underlying problems that prevent
people from getting out of the welfare system and earning a living wage
– a situation which is bad enough in its self - but when taken only at
face value, leads many people to blame the victim.
With that in mind should we question the view that we live in an equal
society. Where women are said to have the same freedom as men; to go to
university, to become doctors, lawyers, accountants and artists: When
the fact is that it’s women who are mostly on the back foot, both
physically and financially.
The underscoring reality is that a large number of people, mostly
mothers are undervalued for what they already do looking after children.
That many people who are caregivers for children and the disabled are
having more problems than the wider community in ‘just getting their act
together’ and getting a university degree, or a ‘real’ job. The point is
that whether people are parents, beneficiaries, or low paid workers,
there are times in life when extra support is vital to assist them as
they play their part in the welfare of their children for the benefit of
the whole community - it takes a village to raise a child. Nurturing,
empathy and compassion are the fundamental qualities to caring,
co-operative and healthy communities.
Moreover, when the more altruistic qualities are withdrawn from the
system, then the whole system suffers. What were once small easily
contained individual problems, then grow into much larger social issues
that lead people into the justice systems through crime and child abuse;
they become large scale social issues, costing a great deal more to
society; simply because initially we didn’t care enough for those who
were most at risk - the children.
Recent government policy claims to be meeting people’s needs, but these
policies are having a devastating effect on some sections of the
community, more than others.
A thirty one year old divorced female student called Caroline told me
that her annual $1000 student grant had been cancelled. This may not
sound like much money, but this grant would pay for her books and is the
difference between gaining a university degree or dropping out and
staying longer on the DPB. It is the final straw in a long line of
challenges Caroline is facing to improve the quality of her life.
The reason for the withdrawal of support is that she is a part time
Well, you might ask - why doesn’t she go and study full-time?
She would love to but as the full-time carer of two young children she
cannot find reliable childcare. Her family live in a small country town
over 300 miles away, and living in Auckland was part of the action she’s
taken to get away from a very dysfunctional, and abusive life-style. The
father of the children would help, when he is not working, but this is
at night which is not when Caroline’s lectures are scheduled. Therefore
it is left up to her alone to look after the children and do part-time
cleaning work to supplement her DPB income; which will not only cost the
country more money long term, but could have other long-term effects on
Caroline, the results of which impact on her children especially if she
enters into a dubious sexual relationship, or is away from her children
all day working full-time.
Never mind that women are the main carers of children, they are still
paid (as the most recent US statistics show) only 77% of what men earn
for the same job.
This is the financial devaluation of women and those who care for
children, it is the lack of value we place on the nurturing, empathetic,
compassionate qualities of what I’ve come to call Women-World: That as a
society we value much more the active, hierarchical and competitive
traits I call Man-World (Read MEN: Are they the biggest problem in the
world?). That when used by people who are not aligned to any value
system, has grave effects on the health of the whole social structure,
particularly physical safety and mental health.
By with-holding the qualities that make for caring interactive and
co-operative societies, we are withdrawing from ‘cooperative alignment’
to the detriment of all humanity. In doing this we are restricting the
flow of our own evolution (See Workshop details to discover how male and
female energy fields affect you).
Scientists and mathematicians are coming to this same understanding.
While they may not call it ‘raising the value of female energy fields’
or ‘a female point of view’, they are beginning to describe the value of
female energy field traits, and how important they to our evolution.
‘“Co-operation is as important to evolution as competition”, argues
mathematician and biologist Martin Nowak in an article by Veronika
Meduna in NZ Listener 14th Jan 2012. SuperCooperators: Evolution,
Altruism and Human Behavior, by Martin Nowak with Roger Highfield.… it
is a great introduction to the evolutionary implications of altruism and
the elegance of mathematics…he (Nowark) proposes that altruism is a
driver of evolution in its own right, and places its significance equal
to random mutation and natural selection… mathematical models show that
selfish strategy (always defect first) is eventually overcome by
co-operation, only to be ousted again by selfishness until a new cycle
(of co-operation) begins again… Nowark manages to bring alive the people
whose work has contributed to this field of research and to provide
plenty of examples of co-operation in action, right from molecules and
genes working together for the good of an entire organism to the
evolution of language, emotion and conscience’
And still with growing evidence of the damage to people and society,
government funding is being cancelled for many vital services to the
community: To Plunket, which is a basic essential need for the support
of mothers and babies health, it now survives on public funding. Night
Classes which introduce people to different options has also had its
funding cut. They are both great services for the support of childrens
physical health, and peoples mental health, by helping them stay
connected to the community.
While the present leadership chips away at basic services to assist
people into health services and higher education, their demise is
affecting more and more children, single people, women with children,
and families who care for the disabled. It is becoming harder on the
elderly, many of whom thought their income was safely collecting
interest for their retirement. Sadly, many are now totally dependent on
the beneficiary system.
With the mountains of information that is available, apart from Feminist
literature, at no time through my early school years, later education,
Eastern spiritual beliefs, Western religious systems, self help books,
or listening to spiritual Guru’s did I find any value in society for
being a human woman who is a caregiver of children, the disabled, or the
Feminism has, and continues to change the world for the better as it
raises awareness of female poverty and female issues, while at the same
time improving the lives of men, women and children: liberating men too,
allowing them to step out of their limited and fixed gender roles. So
why is it that Feminism is not seen for its phenomenal value - of
raising people’s awareness and improving the quality of their lives? It
has allowed for many people, a way of breaking out of the ‘forces of
control’ that dominate all our lives through financial inequity – that
go on to affect the well-being and protection of thousands of children -
needless to say generations of their children too?
How is it still, so many boys and girls are able, or have been allowed,
to slip through the ever widening cracks that create generations of
people so ingrained in the losing end of the system, that they are
unable to get off welfare? Some of whom go on to badly abuse and injure
the children they should be nurturing, loving and protecting.
Why are we not physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually
creating supportive systems for those who are struggling, particularly
young people; girls before they become pregnant and young men who become
lost in the confusing world of maleness? Those who will grow to
adulthood ill equipped to care for themselves let alone their babies,
usually on a limited unemployment or DPB income, without the support or
social skills necessary for an individualistic, competitive and
university degree focused social structure.
And think about it for a moment – why so much rejection of Feminism in
particular even by left-wing groups who still see it as an outlet for
disgruntled and difficult women: This in a world where women still
strive for equal pay, the right to control their own bodies and manage
their reproduction cycles; simply to have the same opportunities that
exist for men in mainstream society.
Martin Nowak described how selfishness and competition are giving way to
the more cooperative and compassionate qualities, which means that the
universal energy field qualities traditionally held by women are being
proved in value - literally: Truths that were once invisible to the old
mind-set who submerged then cemented them into myth through-out the
worlds of religious, educational and political systems to ‘disprove the
evidence of female existence’. Moreover, that two systems (male and
female) could not work as one; a view that is also proving to be false.
Like weeds in a garden the time has come for all that lies unseen to
surface: That as individuals we are able to see more clearly how a great
power play for control of humanity has been conducted for thousands of
years, and is still being waged by hierarchical systems to control the
forces of male and female consciousness: Therefore as we raise the
awareness of our energy fields into one collective structure – we are
regaining ever more and greater connections to the source of all life,
in doing so we bring an end to controlling world powers that maintain
themselves through the division of our collective consciousness.
