Q- should we as individuals try to balance our masculine and feminine energy so that we have both in equal measure and use both?
A- In short, no my love.
Often this sort of Neutralism is propagated in the blending of the idea of yin and yang energy with western world views. Yin and yang, much like yoga, is challenging to truly grok if you weren’t raised to see the world that way and have not immersed within the culture that birthed these concepts.
The idea that you can be too feminine is a myth.
You can be too yin or too yang yes, but not too feminine.
A man can be can be too yang or too yin yes, but not too masculine.
This idea of trying to balance these two energies within is a source of a great deal of stress and strain. Those humans created as two spirits to embody both spaces are rare and feel that inclination.
The majority of us are most fulfilled inhabiting one pole, finding a partner who inhabits the other pole, and creating, cultivating and complementing each other from this space. This isn’t weakness or brokenness, this is how we are made.
We aren’t created to be alone, beloved.
When we see animals doing this we find it beautiful. For some reason, this desire and need in humans has been demonized.
How can it be good to need sisterhood but not partnership?
How can it be wonderful to have pets but not other humans?
Why is it okay to need a job, but not okay to need masculine men in your life?
You are sacred and how you were made to function is good.
Divine partnership is Holy. And the interconnectedness and interdependence between the Masculine and Feminine is divine.
