I love Neytiri! She's a perfect expression of how a woman lives the deep power of the Divine Feminine, grounded in her body, open to her intuition, in tune with her instincts. I love her fierceness, and I have promised myself that when my grown sons act up, I WILL say to them with a hiss: You are such a child!

It is Neytiri's fierceness that is called for now in our world, and like her strength and loyalty which open Jake up to his feelings, women need to stand in their fierce beauty and challenge men to open to the power of the Feminine. (Remember, the soul is feminine.) Clarrissa Pinkola Estes wrote about this kind of feminine fierceness in her book, "Women Who Run With the Wolves". Neytiri is one of the best cinematic female characters since Veronica Franco in "Dangerous Beauty". It is this kind of female strength that attracts and helps birth the king archetype in men.

Because between the three women in the story, Jake does grow up and take responsibility for the part he plays in the destruction of the Home Tree, which symbolizes the World Tree, the Tree of Life. We too have to grow up and to acknowledge our part in the destruction of life, our home - if we're ever going to step up and do something about it.

And it isn't only about acknowledging that corporations don't have our collective interests at heart. It's about looking at the underlying belief of our patriarchal culture which says that there is a Father God who lives in the heavens and who has no Feminine counterpart. This belief allows us to think the material world is 'dead matter' instead of the feminine aspect of the Divine, the Divine ability to Incarnate in material life. This belief in only the power of the Masculine Spirit has cut us off from Feminine Spirit, which comes through our bodies and souls and gives us a truthful 'standpoint' about life. When we get 'embodied' again, we regain our connection to the Feminine Spirit of Life and to our connection with Spirit in an intimate way. That's how we grow into conscious human beings.
