What is the Reason for Rape?
A young woman asked a very good question at the “Youth and Truth” sessions with Sadhguru.
My comment on the article is below her question; I have quoted Sadhguru from the article, above.
Q: Sir, we portray our India as a woman and call her “Mother India”. Yet we see many rape cases, even in which we see a man raping his own mother, daughter or sister. What drives a man with such madness of pleasure to do such an inhuman act?
“The guy goes crazy.”
“If he thinks nobody is watching, he will pounce on somebody.”
“…you must understand that in a rape case, the only witness is almost always the victim. If you guarantee to a rapist that, if you rape and get caught, you will hang for sure, what do you think he will do? He will eliminate that only witness.”
“If he was in the village, then by eighteen, nineteen he would be married to somebody. Now he has no hope. He is simply there, and he will do wild things. This is the nature of a human being, we must understand.”
The woman has asked the question, because she is *not* inhuman; she is not like this.
It is not her nature to be “feral”.
Wild with wonder, and passion, and creativity, and Love, perhaps – but she is not a rapist, or a killer, by nature.
Here, Sadhguru paints a picture of man as a “Wild, feral, hormonal rapist and murderer, by nature.”
And we are told he is “just a man” – or a boy, even, and to NOT BE AFRAID. Even Sadhguru sounds afraid! His first thought, is: “Do not guarantee to a rapist that they will be punished; for he will surely ELIMINATE YOU.”
Rape and Murder you.
Let us not forget that a FATHER who rapes his baby daughter, is not under the influence of Hormones – this is something else, entirely.
A darkness, that us women of the world still have no answer or explanation for – other than Man is, by nature, ‘stupid’, ‘hormonal’, ‘crazy,’ ‘opportunistic’, ‘self-serving’, ‘clueless’, ‘calculating’, ‘reactionary’, ‘murderous’.
That girls and women are better than him; so we will not have equal-partners, but needy-children with scary muscles; as bosses, teachers, parents, friends, and romantic-partners.
“Do not blame the boy-child! He is messed-up; misguided. Misdirected. Unable to think for himself. He is pathetic. Help him; but be careful – he might rape and murder you.”
Men can be MORE than this beast he is portrayed as, in every culture, all over the world. We are Universally Bonded by the fact that it is not “Indian Men” – it is MEN.
Women cannot help him; he rapes and murders her if she tries. Men must help Men.
Help them to R.E.S.P.E.C.T. women.
He goes on to say, that Indian Society had previously planned a boy’s life; your affairs will be settled, you will have a wife.
Man is the perpetual Baby; with his clothes laid-out, and breakfast ready. He does not see nor receive his Mother’s Love; he expects her servitude. She is his slave. Woman is his entitlement.
He is like a fat, pompous king, that feeds only the ego, and his primal nature.
The wife will be the ‘new mother’.
Some of the points he raised are relevant only to Indian Society. And to hormonal boys.
Mother Earth is full of murderous male-rapists who are beyond hormonal years; whose wives give birth to daughters; who have sisters; who were raised in cities.
The way I see it, the majority of the world worships a male-god; this has programmed girls to see men as god-Like.
Boys are not programmed to see girls and women as god-Like: it is imbalanced.
She automatically respects him; he automatically does not respect her.
This young woman’s question holds the key:
It is called “Mother India”, but She and her daughters are disrespected.
The further India moves from its Goddess roots, the stupider it’s men become.
Girls and women need to see Man for what he really is; not “god-Like”, but exactly as Sadhguru describes: FERAL AND DANGEROUS.
And us men who stand up to these males are vilified. We are cast out of work and jobs. We are beaten and even sometimes rapes. Our voices become lies in echo chambers. We are ridiculed and scorned. Many women blindly follow the directions of the males who do this to us.
Our greatest crime is that we will not become like those who did this to us.

It’s almost as if the world was made for them; and *not* for the rest of us. ❤

There are guys being paid for jobs they don’t turn up to. Of course their creativity extends only as far as new ways to keep getting more sex (off the books). I guess their lawyer mates are always working on new ways to legalize rape.
The boys club has many female ring leaders too now

Whatever reasons they come up with it is never acceptable. They will use their crime to continue stealing time forever though.

Often, I leave comments under articles, online – I never know if their “pending approval” will ever be approved, so I keep a record of them.
Here’s one: some guy, writing about “what have women done for minorities” – because fixing the world that man destroyed is womans job.
Cleaning up his mess, while she’s injured.
I think you shouldn’t write about women’s issues.
1) #MeToo only JUST came under the spotlight; there are centuries of abuse to catch up on. Forgive us if we’ve been preoccupied with seeking our OWN justice, or wanting to die – or if we’ve been busy living with trauma.
2) Alyssa Milano and Tarana Burke keep in touch; they ‘work’, tweet, and “activate”, together.
3) Self-Appointed BOSS OF THE WORLD (America), is currently about to elect an accused rapist as its JUDGE, JURY, AND EXECUTIONER in the highest court of the land.
The better person for the job is anyone else, who hasn’t been accused of rape. Is that person so hard to find?
Rather than BITCH, WHINE, AND MOAN about women not working hard enough for you, why the FUCK don’t YOU DO something; every ENABLER, or ASSAULTER you’ve mentioned in your article is a MAN. Is it wounded-women’s job to hold those men accountable?
Or do we just have to waste what little energy we have teaching you to be better men.
DO SOMETHING USEFUL.

Seems mother earth is awakening… enraged. I guess my hermit like life is better than having died, and it allows to honour daily those who did die and helped me get here. I barely even bother airing my own injuries anymore let alone do the unpaid administration of appeasing for those who never seem to have enough.
Besides after all these years I understand them even less.

“Unpaid Administration” – absolutely. Lol. ❤

Damned if we do or don’t. 😞

I still can’t believe this topic… as a male am I honestly supposed to subscribe to some shit that I should be the victim if I were to harm and degrade/devalue a woman, or less frequently, a man?
Most spiritual teachings are about taking responsibility and making sacrifice. Discipline.
The minority of us would consider it a travesty to come to this world and not grow, instead shitting on whatever we like. I don’t understand this world.
At least I rarely have to be around other men anymore who lie to their family and put on that other mask with the boys.
It is a shame lawyers take their money and rape their own legal system and livelihood in looking for ways to justify alcohol, stupidity, and an ever inclusive boys club.

Isn’t it a stupid world.
Did I tell you about Dolores Cannon?
October 4, 2018 at 6:57 am
Yeah, I took in a fair bit of her stuff on YouTube. Pretty good. Not much really new… I totally feel Tony Stark when he says I aren’t much of a joiner…
Just as I said that Bill Murray just delivered a great line in Ghostbusters 👻👻👻

A lot of it. Been a bit more this week

This is great.
He answered better than Sadhguru, I think!

Reply to someone that wouldn’t post:
This is an old article; so I was probably referencing the post, which highlights the Incel philosophy: “Involuntarily Celebate”.
As in, “can’t get dates”.
They feel entitled to women; to women’s time, attention, bodies, etc, and believe their philosophies are justified.
That men rule and women serve.
This is a dangerous mentality.
A lot of women Live in fear of controlling men, and we’re raised in households by them. Sometimes they know no difference.
Is a normal guy a bad guy?
Too much of the time, Fathers are raping their own daughters.
Brothers, raping their sisters.
Some of the time, the Mothers know, and do nothing about it.
Many women were taught to be obedient at home, in schools, churches, hospitals, and any institution where respect is demanded, but not earned.
Double-Lives catch up with you, eventually.
