“All creatures must learn that there exist predators. Without this knowing, a woman will be unable to negotiate safely within her own forest without being devoured. To understand the predator is to become a mature animal who is not vulnerable out of naivete, inexperience, or foolishness.”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
Was so interesting to read the comments about the Why? an Indigenous Zapatista Presidential Candidate, María de Jesús Patricio.
We could debate all sorts of things like why would the Zapatistas participate in the corrupt system, why is this woman wearing as mask, why why why ?
so, if you don't know who the CNI and María de Jesús Patricio is:https://www.pri.org/stories/2017-06-02/mexico-has-its-first-indigenous-woman-candidate-president
She clarified that the effort isn’t just for indigenous people, but for Mexicans from all walks of society, “to join forces to be able to destroy this system that is generally finishing us all off.”Thirty-two years after the September 1985 Mexico City earthquake, in September 2017, another earthquake shook near Mexico City... what was seen from afar, here in northern New Mexico, was a dream that came during the time of the Sept 2017 earthquake. Not knowing exactly where it fit into the weaving of dreams that are the living conscious and intentional dialogue of Grandmother Earth ...
Have received numerous dreams similar to this one... so waited to see or hear something in this tangible world acknowledging the dreamspeak...
after all this here "northern New Mexico" was only severed from Mexico by conquest's illusionary borders in 1848 ~
Grandmother Earth was breaking and splitting, upheaving and hurling off buildings and earth, imposed religious, political, military systems and
birthing out of this ...

For me, the mask allows for autonomy during the fall of the empire of the age of patriarchal man, man speak, and man spread ... this could be any woman, this could you or me, speaking in terms of infinite potentiality,
in the Nowness,
time of metamorphosis.
Speaking in the Voice of the Feminine,
this voice, that rumbles n moves with the earth,
that sings with the winds,
that weaves with the seasons,
that flows with the rivers,
this voice a timeless voicing Power
of the life giving wilding nature of the original instructions
from the Sea of Emergence ~
Am not naive enough to think that the Zapatistas give a hootie about being part of the corrupt political system ~ rather this is a another Calling,
for Now is the time,
when the women will lead and the men will protect and support us ~
yes the "prophecies" have been and are being fullfilled and realized ~
Yours Truly ~
