my message for the week:
heavy stuff! and no sugar coating.
time to work consciously to renew my spirituality and by doing so face that which i’ve been avoiding.
spend time in contemplation, be still and peaceful, be in silence, quiet the mind and specially the ego.
what has been tempting me may be delightful but a moment of indulgence could have long-term repercussions that could lead me away from well-being clarity and harmony 😹
be patient, because things have been set in motion even if i cannot see them clearly, there will be a surprising twist in your life.
there’s also a spiritual gift for me, so let be helped, don’t block anything and let life happen through you, let thing flow and stop being so impatient

Gods In Everyman - Review
Gods in Every Man is not a book on men. I could say the same for Goddesses in Every Woman. I believe Bolen is analyzing human archetypes, rather than gender archetypes.
The myths that she analyzes apply to both men and women. The father myth is about how a patriarchy can destroy or ennoble a human. By trying to fit into the patriarchy, it can destroy the human. But by having the power to turn away from the patriarchy and become independent can ennoble a human.
Bolen breaks up the gods into fathers, favored sons, and rejected sons.Aspects seen in Zeus are accepted by the patriarchy, with Hades and Poseidon acting as the Zeus archetype's shadows. Poseidon is the emotional aspect and Hades is the soulful aspect, which the patriarchy tries to contain. Apollo and Hermes (law and communication) are the accepted archetypes because they fall in the realm of the patriarchy while Ares and Hephaestus are the rejected sons. Both the Ares and Hephaestus archetype rely on emotions, which is why they're rejected. Ares depicted brute strength, but he was also incredibly passionate. He reacted on emotions immediately, in the world of the "here and now." Hephaestus utilized his emotions to create beautiful artifacts, and always stood by the matriarch. The myths inevitably tell what was accepted and rejected by ancient Greek culture. Sadly, I feel that these gender stereotypes are still in effect today.
"Male stereotypes also hold power over men, limiting who they can comfortably be by rewarding some qualities and rejecting others."
When a society defines what a man should be, that instantly cuts out men who are outside of that definition. The same is true of women. I appreciated it that Bolen's books weren't necessarily applied to gender.
So if you're a fan of Carl Jung and are interested in psychology and 'following your bliss' to self-actualize yourself, this book can help you show the way. I highly recommend it.
