When I think it has only been a little over 100 years, after the First World War, that women have even had the opportunity to earn their own living, I am amazed at the strides women have made.
Being smaller in size than most men and certainly unequalled to them in physical strength, women must trust that, indeed, we live in a civilized world where most men have subdued their animal instincts. That a woman can walk down the street without being accosted. That she can stand up for herself verbally, without being physically subdued.
Yes, it takes a lot of courage to dress your feminine nature up so that the world, instead of perceiving your vulnerability, will respond to your competence, your skills, your intelligence.
Masculine energy must be civilized in order for women to even conceive such a thing is possible.
As a culture, we have come a long way down that road to civilization. But, somehow, it feels like we are losing ground these days, with all the shootings. Masculine energy is certainly on a rampage.
Do any of us know what that's all about? Certainly not I. And does it have anything at all to do with women or the feminine or feminine energy?
