Really, I want you to think about it. What if women ruled the world? How would our world be different? (I’ll wait.)
Some of the things that came to mind might have been the various representations of women ruling the world that you saw on TV (or in a movie) or maybe you read about it in a book. Most of these, in my experience, are not what I would call “accurate” representations of how women would rule the world. They usually have women ruling the world, but they are playing a much more masculine role. If women ruled the world, do you really think they’d rule it like men have?
Women, typically, have more Yin energy than their male counterparts. Of course, an integrated human would have both Yin energy and Yang energy, but like I said, typically, women are known for having more Yin energy. Because of this, I wouldn’t expect women to be overtly aggressive. That’s not to say they can’t be, but typically, women are going to be a bit more passive. Now, this is often seen as a negative quality (in general), but I think that this has only happened because men have “ruled the world.” Because we’ve had men at the top, because men are typically the leader, the qualities present in men have been the qualities held in esteem.
One of the books I hold in high regard, Spontaneous Evolution, brings to light a different story of history (in a few chapters). That is, the authors review some of the important points in history and highlight some of the information that isn’t usually mentioned. As an aside, they raise an interesting perspective on evolution. More importantly to our topic of women ruling the world, they wrote about the beginnings of the United States of America. They wrote about how the Founding Fathers came to write the Declaration of Independence and how they came to write the US Constitution. Of course, these authors weren’t there when these documents were forming, so their opinions (however based in ‘fact,’) cannot be assumed to be factual. I only say this because I’m sure there are lots of opinions about how such important documents as these came to be and I didn’t want to claim that the perspective I’m offering is the only one.
As I said, in this book, the authors talk about how these important American documents were formed. More than that, they talk about how the Founding Fathers interacted with the Native Americans and, in fact, how they [Founding Fathers] learned from them [Native Americans]. According to these authors, the two documents I referred to were influenced by what the Founding Fathers witnessed in the Native Americans. That is, how they interacted within their culture — with the land, with the people, and with the animals. It is a fascinating read, but the point I wanted to make with raising this book was that in the early Native American culture, women made the decision as to whether or not they went to war with a neighboring tribe. Let me say that again: women made the decision to go to war. Women. And the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were based on what the Founding Fathers witnessed in the Native American society.
Can you imagine what the world would look like today had women be the ultimate decision-makers with regard to going to war with a neighboring country? Do you think that the US would have been in as many wars as it has in the last 50 years had a council of women, how about grandmothers, be the ones who made the final decision?
