Good fathering enhances peace and creativity

Commemorate today by reading Father's Day 2017 by Thomas Moore. Moore writes about his own fathering experiences, his father, father figures in his life, and muses:
"But I also think of Father’s Day as the commemoration of the Great Father, the fathering principle or archetype that holds the world together and that we need so badly today. When people, especially women, speak disparagingly of the patriarchy, I assume they are thinking of the absence of the real father spirit, usually replaced by an anxious, symptomatic, neurotic fathering that is overbearing, self-serving and aggressive.  This is not the father spirit but rather the bent insanity that fills in when the genuine father spirit is lost. "
