The Divine Masculine
As multifaceted, spiritually-embodied beings, we each have a complex psychological and emotional constitution that produces one’s inner health and outer reality. Each one of us, man and woman, carries within our psyche both masculine and feminine archetypes. From these influences come all our conscious thoughts, plans, desires, goals and agendas. They intertwine and cooperate to produce a uniquely personal expression and experience of life.
The Divine Feminine
as an equally fundamental dynamic of the creative life force and the
Divine, along with the masculine. The yang cannot exist without the
yin. It means remembering our interconnection and oneness: we are
not separate from each other and creation.
Gender Neutral, it seems to me- is about doing no harm to others, not discriminating and allowing humans to learn what comes with their own nature.
And I have to say, I felt very compelled to handle this moment with reverence rather than ignore the actual co-existing reality that he has a point. In saying that, I'm very safe with him. Through knowing who he is and how much reverence he has for women in general and how he would never fight, get angry or minimize the truth that exists for a woman in our culture. He has that co-existence within him. Where he doesn't throw out the baby with the bath water. I refer to this as unapologetically masculine and has a keen sense of over all we are one justice running through him in addition to empathy for all living creatures.
He just moves in alignment with his own nature. Having said that, it's easier to do that when you're unapologetically who you are and your sexuality is considered "normal."
He loves women. Women, not men. He's not against or uncomfortable with any guy who is sexually attracted to other guys. He just isn't. He doesn't understand it because that isn't his sexual orientation. His sexual fluidity keeps flowing toward women. But he leaves room for others to live and let live. He doesn't care who uses the bathroom. If you gotta go-you gotta go. No big deal.
He's also the human whom; if he saw your grandmother's purse being taken from her from a punk who wasn't taught how to honor seniors...he would DO something about that. In the moment based on his sense of justice. He would also do that for a transgender person's purse too.
He's a whole person after all...a part of that is...his divine masculinity and owning that unapologetically.
What fascinated me in my Dad's world view about my having paid my life dues was....I feel this truth all around me. In the skin that I'm in, in my attitude, in my consciousness, in my heart.
My Dad has this way of "nailing" it with me. That happened after Donovan died, a few years later as I was in repair and recovery mode when he said "Christina Marie, you had a cosmic crack" It was like...Yes...yes I did. I most certainly did.
Gender Neutral on it's own does not leave any room for the cosmic crack of a young woman whose breasts were still engorged with milk to feed her child. It just doesn't.
Yet, include the human spirit, the divine masculine and the divine feminine and you have the co-existence where human empathy, compassion and wonder lives.
In my mind, we NEED all of it...we just need all of it to co-exist.
Just this mornings thoughts...
