Sit Down, Patriarchy.
Masculine energy is the mind; doing, dividing, categorizing, black & white, focus, power.
Feminine energy is the heart; being, connecting, sharing, all shades of grey, expansion, love.
The head is doing, the heart is being. We are very stuck in our heads, which is human nature. It's much harder for many of us to feel into our bodies and our hearts. Feeling things can be very uncomfortable because we're out of practice, so we resort back up into our heads. We keep busy, we escape with impulsiveness, drugs, and alcohol, we fight, we get lost in more doing. This is our default setting. It's our heads that have gotten us into trouble.
Do you know how we got here? Money, power, the individual, our masculine dominated minds, the patriarchy. We'll need to make space for our feminine being for a while to outweigh the masculine that has reigned for so long. But both are necessary for complete balance.
Once I understood and actually felt the difference of BEING vs. DOING, everything changed. Life opened up and came to me. I didn't have to work as hard as I felt my way into everything and things just fell into place; as they naturally do when you let go of control, the hustle, the pushing, the enduring, the suffering, the DOING.
Do you know what we get when we utilize just BEING? The feminine energy? We get peace, love, creativity, thriving, compassion, empathy, birth of ideas, music, flow, passion, mystery, connection, intimacy, inclusivity, nurturing, and humanity for fucks sake!
We are in fact called human beings, not human doings.
We are meant to be balanced. Everything originally on this Earth creates harmony. Natural cycles of creation and destruction. Our destructive habits have simply overstayed their welcome and nature is drastically trying to save itself, with or without us.
