It’s important to remember that the masculine principle lives within all of us. When we pathologize this kind of energy in any way, we make an inner vote for pathologizing ourselves.
Yang energy is external focused. Creates through action.
Yin energy is inward, and reflective. Generative by sitting still.
It doesn’t make much sense to demonize the masculine (yang), especially when we rely so heavily on it to do the work to build what we need in the world.
There is a lot of stuff and things we have been conditioned to think we must have, and we command the masculine energies to attain or create it. We have also been taught to believe that things have to look and feel a certain way – and we put all the pressure on our masculine, action orientated energies to make that happen.
We’re not relying on the feminine enough. There is imbalance.
The feminine can generate through gestation. Through less action – through feeling. We need it, to give the masculine a break. The masculine is being given the wrong role, one it wasn’t born to embody. And it’s being abused for not performing to the standards of our conditioned minds.
It’s important to look within ourselves and see where we are putting too much pressure on one side or the other.
It doesn’t make much sense to shit talk the carpenter who builds our homes. Especially when its so important to have shelter, in order to survive.
It’s kind of like we are trying to milk a horse. It’s a horse – it doesn’t give you milk. So why get mad at it when it’s resting & refueling in the field?
The masculine principle within us has way too much pressure put on it. It’s not being honored. It’s being forced to overwork, overproduce, and then gets belittled when it needs rest.
It’s easy to pathologize according to the tales our human wounding tells us. It’s harder to sit back and observe the narrative that’s playing out through the discombobulation of our energetics.
If things aren’t working well, look to the way your masculine and feminine energies are being used or not used – or abused.
Seek the truth of this relationship within you.
