Set 'em Up- Ice on Fire

Intro to a New Story- Trilogy of Ice and Fire

Humans have had a 5,000 year old plus story of the hero’s journey [1] that heralds male accomplishments and virtues. We have experimented with ego and tool making and have made amazing discoveries. We have left the nest and developed as individuals We have gone and continue going afield, gathering and at times utilizing, the information we collect. We have built amazing, complex machines and systems to handle it all. We call this progress.

However, this very process is jeopardizing said “progress.”  For at the very core of all this activity are old stories and beliefs which limited possibilities and therefore, choices, from the very start of what we call civilization.

So, even as we build and create opportunity, we lose perspective and choice. We are drawing from an ever shrinking pool of the whole that is possible.

And since we built and grew systems based on what we thought was true, we magnified consequences and manifested huge correlations between probabilities and choosing limits. Our free choice is now dictated from the shrinking pool of options that appear the most rational and therefore “right.”

We have painted ourselves into a quantum corner with a classic and materialist brush.

This can’t be good.

We need a new hero’s journey and some new archetypes. We need to figure in deep ecology and planet systems. When we change the stories, we can change the paradigm, which in turn rearranges, renews and re-expands possibilities.  

One such story needs to be the journey of the feminine hero. We need this for balance

This journey is not about women going out to conquer the world, nor does it relate to equality in the old story. This is a new journey, a journey to the whole of being. It is a personal journey that resonates and interacts with concepts of whole consciousness. 

 It is a story about unity, healing and the interactive uni-verse. When we free our selves from the old beliefs, free consciousness from fear, we enter love.

So all in all this is just another love story, and it starts in the frozen north as the glacier melts and the Ice Queen starts to thaw.

[1] “A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.[
