If you are reading this your uterus and body are the most free, the most liberated than they could have ever been in recorded history. Structures and operating systems for many of us in the free world cannot openly dictate when or with whom we reproduce.
If you are reading this, your body is the most free it's been in history.
For many on the planet, this is not the case.
Same sex couples in 80 countries cannot be together under the law, let alone have a family together. Those born into a particular religious sect may have their reproductive rights superseded by religious law. Those captive within the deplorable sex trade may have no choice or voice for their bodies, minds, or spirits.
Radical freedom is a relatively new opportunity. For many people, taking time in this life to explore and know themselves, their sexuality, and their unique individual desires is the prerequisite before conceiving and having children. This self-transformation takes time and for some the length of the reflection extends to the cusp of their bodies' reproductive years. Choosing exploration over biological time can be a hard exchange.
I stress that even the freedom to enter into conversation with your reproductive choice is within itself revolutionary. For many, this revolution has not yet occurred. If you have been fortunate to be born now in the right place with the freedom to choose, then remember this: hold it sacred as something very unique and magical. You are a frontiers person and frontiers people are always the bravest.
Act with courage. Avoid fear. Construct new paradigms for the planet. Show our sorted repressive history and the oppressive hold-outs on the planet what a free sexuality and uterus looks like. Help us to evolve out of — not devolve into — replacing fallen structures with new masters such as modern medicine and cultural materialism. Remember, "as above, so below and so below, as above."
We are all unified. The way each of us represents and extends our unique freedom helps support all other people on the planet. It helps liberate us and creates a better future for all children, not just the ones we choose to create.
