Men see themselves as solely masculine. Your society has taught men to express themselves primarily as the hunter, the aggressor, the conqueror. While women see themselves more blended, they have been programmed to believe that they must only nurture and remain weak. It is only in the context of this patriarchal society that women are to remain followers. In history, the matriarchal society reigned from a more intuitive place.
You are both male and female. You are both physical and emotional. There is no limit to the expression of the soul. The soul is androgynous. The soul is a reflection of All That Is, both masculine and feminine. At times expressing itself as created, other times expressing as creator. You can see the feminine creates life through birth. You can also recognize that the masculine seeds that creation. Both male and female create first from spirit, then mind, emotion and finally take physical action. All elements within that circle of creation are necessary.
The intuition and wisdom is feminine, while knowledge and power is masculine. In understanding that both are necessary to create wholeness, you understand that can't have wholeness without one or the other. Bring together both parts of your wholeness. You are the created and creator in all things. You are the seed and the flower. You are the water and the fire. You are capable of birthing new life and destroying life through destructive words, thoughts, acts.
It is good to have strength, it is equally good to have humility. It is good to have emotion, it is equally good to have rational thought. The blending of qualities will allow you to experience wholeness, peace and harmony. Flour without water is only flour. Mix water with flour and you have food, sustenance and substance. At times you will express more masculine or feminine, this is acceptable. Each experience evokes the need for each. When masculine energy of power is needed, as it completes feminine energy of regeneration is required. In this way, all things remain balanced.
Find within you the creator and created. Recognize that you are either reacting to the projection of physical reality or you are responsibly recreating it to reflect truth. Truth that all things are necessary for balance and wholeness of expression. The dance of the soul is the physical expression of all things, male/female, creator/created, emotion/thought, love/fear. Remember that in each step, the dance changes. It is beautifully orchestrated to express all thought, emotion and physical manifestation.
