In a world full of opportunities, we have set the most unbearable limitations on ourselves, society and the world. We end up missing out on life, liberty and love. When we lump people into categories, we end up missing out on the good. We end up missing out on the possibilities of experiencing miracles.
As a society, we’ve gotten so use to ostracizing anything and anyone that doesn’t fit a specific perception of “normal.” But, what the fuck is normal? Since when did superiority land at the feet of white males? No, this is not going to be the blame game. No, this is not going to be something you’d want to continue reading if you are a white male but, I urge you to suck it up and keep on. Because like I said, we are limiting ourselves with labels.
When we categorize & label, we start to miss the uniqueness and speciality of all of God’s beautiful work. What would life look like if we took our blinders off? What if we stopped labeling everything and everyone?
For years we have let the oppression of women be normal. For years we have let the oppression of BIPOC be normal. For years we have let the oppression of LGBTQ+ be normal. Again, please excuse my labeling.
We could start with the oppression of women. The Bible has it, history holds true. But, we tend to forget or ignore the significant power of females in the Bible. I could start with one — Virgin Mary. Jesus would not be able to be here if She was not here. The Virgin Mary sacrificed Her womb, life and image to become the Mother of Jesus. So why are there no female priests, Popes, Cardinals, or Bishops in the Catholic Church? (Research shows one who is not recognized)
If everyone was created in the image and likeness of God, can woman too channel the Holy Spirit? Did the Virgin Mary not hear God tell Her that She would birth the Son of God? That is called channeling. Why are men the only ones that can preach the Word of God?
This leads me into the next category. A male that gets their calling from God has a superior status they can reach. They get to stand in front of millions of people to spread the Word of God but yet, a woman who does it, is seen as a witch. A woman who had the same gifts as a man got burnt at the stake because she too possessed the same (if not stronger) gifts of men for years.
Is it because man inherits their powers while in the womb of a female? Is it a natural instinct on their part to want to over power? As a medium, it was hard for me to accept my gifts. The same gifts that my Priest and even Pope hold. Yet they are seen as ones that are Holy and full of God. Meanwhile, I have been ridiculed and told what I’m doing is Evil by my own family members. I get it, how can little, boring me possess the same gifts of men who preach to the masses?
Should I too be burnt at the stake? Why do I not get a fancy house in Italy? Why do I not get a say in how people should “fear” God? This isn’t just in the Roman Catholic Church. This is true for almost all religions. Some are quicker to an awakening of inclusion than others. But, I’m not here to just talk about religion or women.
Shall we go on to BIPOC? I’m not even sure where to start. Slavery, rape, murder, injustice, disservice, and invasion are just a few words that come to mind. It’s almost 2021, we are still fighting the fight of inequality. STILL. BIPOC are being murdered in our streets, jail cells, and their own homes.
Here we find a shift in superiority. It’s taken away from white males and now placed in the hands of Police Officers. Again, not the blame game but this sense of entitlement and superiority of one’s life being more valuable than the next. We could argue until we are blue in the face that not all are bad, whichever label we’d like to support.
Shall we go on to LGBTQ+ inequalities? Because someone doesn’t fit the “standards” of what gender or love looks like, we (again) say it’s the Devil’s work. But, no they too, are God’s creation.
Children, another category that has been oppressed by superiority. When grown people think because they are bigger, stronger, and smarter than a child, they inflict wounds and repeat cycles. Adults have continuously for years rape, murder and abuse our children in homes, schools, camps, and wherever else they should be feeling safe. It’s amazing how many of those that harm still walk free.
What if I told you that the Devil is actually inside of YOU? It’s the deep darkness that you hold within you that goes against God and His Light. It’s the trauma you ignore to process. It’s all the pain and hurt you carry. All the injustice you have faced as a child.
If we had a world full of people that were willing to take a deep dive into themselves to correct the wrong doings of others and taking ownership for their own decisions, the world will be a better place.
PEOPLE ARE ONLY INFERIOR TO YOU BECAUSE OF YOUR INSECURITIES.
Not all womxn who channel God are evil. Not all of the hierarchy of the Church are pedophiles. Not all BIPOC are thugs. Not all Police Officers are murderers. All of the LGBTQ+ community are God’s creation.
Take away the labels. Take away the human body. We are all souls of no color, gender, race, association or affiliation. We are all of the same Universe. We are better than the way we’ve been acting and it’s time to change.
