Warmed to Life

 As a leaf uncurled,
a tiny tendril unfurled
warmed from ‘neath frozen tundra gray;
as from sleep she softly wakens
knowing him only
she is gently taken by
the touch of his heart, his mind, his voice.

Etchings sparse on muted linens
swirled to yellows, pinks, and greens
fusing then to luminous orange, bright and lyrical, fresh, serene.
So ’merges she from her chamber softly,
livened to lilt, to warm, to charm.

There once lying
so quietly waiting,
loveliness that was hers to own,
so quiescent, once O’ so stolid, it may be said so much like stone;
there she lay forever sleeping
so untouched, unfelt, unknown.

God is not Enough?

polar-bear-dogs-1Hunting, panting, searing, consuming,
the lingering silence echoes into a dark and endless eternity.
A ravenous velociraptor is Loneliness.
Rage has slain his thousands,
but Loneliness her ten thousands.

Often a young woman will confide in an older, usually married woman that she feels a desire for a companion. Life is a struggle alone. The conversation may then go something like this, “Well my dear, I once knew a missionary lady who was very content to give Bible studies and work for the Lord. She seemed very happy. The Lord was enough for her.” (1) With that statement, the conversation usually ends. Having been the recipient of such advice, I must that say I left feeling guilty and quite ashamed for feeling lonely. I wondered if perhaps this condemnation might be justified. Maybe I am just not spiritual enough, or not praying enough, or something is just not enough. There must be something wrong with me. This counsel certainly cannot be refuted or even challenged without severe disturbances to the psyche. Surely, God is enough, isn’t He?

Women’s Ordination – Our New Forbidden Fruit

imagesIN0LKUPIWhen Eve sinned, a seismic shift occurred in her soul though she was yet unaware. The quiet departure of the Holy Spirt from her heart devastated her conscience, but the emptiness was not felt as yet. She hastened to Adam luring him to partake of the forbidden fruit. He followed her. A  fundamental transformation then occurred in the human family. The genetics of men and women were forever altered after Adam sinned. The robe of light was lost and they knew that they were naked – devoid of the Spirit of God. The only legacy they could now leave to their prodigy would be that nakedness. Eve could now only bequeath to her daughters a legacy of succumbing to the same temptations that caused her own fall. Thereafter the tendency for women to yield to the longing for independence to forge new paths would cause her daughters to wander from God’s roles for them. Women would tend to be seduced into spiritualism and occultism as an attempt to become like god. Women would be disposed towards sensuality to entice men to submit to their desires.

Going My Own Way

6274188038_355e16ac9f_mThere is a growing movement among American men to flee any lasting connection with women.  Casual sexual contact is encouraged, but only carefully and as needed.  These men have decided to completely disengage themselves from all formal, legal, long term relationships with women.  They call themselves MGTOWs – Men Going Their Own Way.  They have been so badly burned by Western feminism that they have banded together to try to warn naïve, younger males from ever marrying.

MGTOWs maintain careers and fundraise to create safe places which bar aggressive intrusion of women into their conversations.  MGTOWs continue to earn money, work, pursue careers and enjoy hobbies but only for themselves.  Some have been forced by divorce courts to pay alimony but are barred from ever seeing their own children. They warn younger men to fear trying to create families. “Women will only use you for financial support and you will never have the chance to be a father to your child’.  They declare that long-term connection with westernized women is too dangerous – both financially and emotionally.   Perhaps a few are sad that this is the case, but they will not take the chance to be bankrupted financially or emotionally ravaged again.  Western women just cannot be trusted.
Here’s the mission statement from the MGTOW website (1)

Wild, Wild West

wild wild westIn times past there were places in our country where the rule of law was unknown. Waste, howling wildernesses encroached on the edges of civility. In those days a crooked glance, a lost card game, jealousy or shamed honor might land you in an unmarked grave. No rules. No law. Only the wild, untamed whims of men prevailed.  Most dared not enter uninvited places like Robber’s Cave, Oklahoma or Hole-in-the-Wall Pass, Wyoming but at the peril of their lives.

Here’s a bit more background ,

“The Old West, often referred to as the Wild West, encompasses the period after the Civil War ,the rest of the 1800’s, and the early part of the 20th century. During this time, thousands of pioneers pushed their way westward in search of land, better lives, gold and silver, and sometimes, to escape the law. Geographically, the “Old West” generally applies to those states west of the Mississippi River. ” (1)
