The Verbal Code as a Sign of Living/Loving Gynocentric Reality: During these 9 days, we proclaim the Gynocentric Reality (Mago Time/Space), that is, the Background Reality, to borrow Mary Daly’s word. It is the Way of the Universe (The Mago Way). We propose the idea that we treat each other beyond/beneath one’s identity defined by race/ethnicity, sex/gender, sexuality, nationality, religion, spirituality, class, education, and etc. We will read/listen to WHAT people say NOT who say that, so to speak. For nine days, we intend to disrupt the usual MENTAL habit of labeling the speaker into a category such as “white woman,” “Asian woman,” “African American woman,” “Native American,” “lesbian,” “white man,” “person of color,” “Christian,” “Muslim,” “middle-class,” “U.S. American,” “British,” “Chinese,” “Third World,” “Ph.D.” and so on. Our identities are all good in nature, enriching the Goodness of Life on Earth. However, it is the patriarchy that attempts to colonize us by dividing and ranking people. When we are consciously undoing the mental habit of patriarchal labels among ourselves, we are preparing a direct path to Gynocentric Reality. How do we do that? As a sign of undoing patriarchal mental labels, we propose the Verbal Code, which is “In Mago Time/Space.” We begin our talk/comment by using the Verbal Code. For example, this can be one’s comment on a Facebook post, “In Mago Time/Space, (whatever one wants to say).” We are neither suggesting that we should remove all all self-referential titles in our talks during this period. Nor that we take someone’s talk uncritically. Rather, we propose a mental/linguistic practice that will affect OUR MIND/Tongue/Language. When we use the Verbal Code, “In Mago Time/Space,” we mean that “I see you the way who you are not by the label that patriarchy places on you. And you are my Sister or Brother in the Primordial Mother.” Change begins in our mind AND manifests in our action/life. There is no dualistic thinking here. Change in thinking is the key to the change in our action.
