Diary of an Archetype: Gaia - paradigms of the femine and the resurgence of 'Gaian Holism' . . . The portrait images are original photos as part of a larger project to understand the concept of Gaia. My life has strictly mirrored the phrase "when the student is ready, the teacher will come." Just as the phrase Gaian Holism started to really resonate with me, an opportunity arose.
I met the gorgeous women you see above @wabi_sabi_bri
and instantly I knew she would be a teacher. I couldn't help but photograph her as soon as possible in order to document what I was experiencing. When you let yourself succumb to the feminine (from my male pov) its the great attractor, the great propellant of inspiration, of harmony. Its the eternal dance of Shakti and Shiva.
We live in a world of dominance and shadow masculine. It's been entertaining to see the trends of 'toxic' masculinity, the shaming of any healthy expression of said force. I don't believe masculinity is wrong its just out of balance. Somewhere we left the goddess behind and the god alone was left to his devices and well I think if you're a reasonably conscious person you can see where that has left us. On a sinking ship.
History is filled with great men, and behind each great man is a great woman, for better or for worse. Why do we adopt ideas such as "men are from mars, women are from Venus" We must readopt the goddess, the feminine, and the maternal. And in turn the feminine must return the favor. She must love herself, and attract great men. The men of the society are only as great as the women. . . .
