Yesterday Whit Sunday, Pentecost. The fiftieth day of Easter. The commemoration of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Christ’s disciples. That is what I read on Wikipedia. What I also learn is that on many pictures of Pentecost, Maria is standing in the middle of the disciples. And yes, here we have the relationship with the purple crocodile. The croc standing for less buraucracy and more self organisation. I connect Maria to the female energy. And I mean by that: Working in a more organic, natural way without the need to rule and organize everything very tightly. Working more in connection with each other. Working more in an open and caring atmosphere.

Women tend to use these qualities more than men. But I think everyone has access to these capabilities. Just as we all have access to the more masculine capabilities to protect others, to focus and set boundaries, be clear and very well able to disconnect irrelevant issues from the essence.

So I would say: “As Maria took her position in the middle of the disciples. Men and women, take your position and do more with your female qualities. We need this to awake more potential in our current masculine orientated society.
