My friend Erica nails it

Very proud of and for her

My latest addition to my compassion toolbox. I have a new found appreciation for the masculine struggle. We live in a world where a concerted effort was made to replace the wild man with the savage man. Becoming civilized and christianized (I’m not talking about Jesus’ teachings. I’m talking about how it was manipulated to subjugate people), being told to blindly follow orders, to turn the other cheek, being told that in order to receive spiritual enlightenment one had to turn away from sensuality…. The women became evil temptresses…. Some men even castrated themselves.
Over the years boys stopped seeing their fathers working a trade with their hands that would be handed down to them. They saw their fathers distantly, exhausted from having to comply and work to make someone else rich.
As necessary as feminism was and still is, men were asked by women to tame themselves, but by other men to blindly follow orders, turning warriors into soldiers, making them capable of committing atrocities… but some fights are still worth fighting, yet it’s hard to tell which ones, and whatever you choose it can feel like damned if you do, damned if you don’t.
We were all separated from our ancestors, deprived of important initiations. Men’s left(Feminine) sides withered. Women’s right(masculine) sides withered. I mean, regardless of gender we weren’t even allowed to hold a pen in our left hands!
Men were ostracized for expressing feelings, necessary for them to make informed compassionate decisions that could actually protect and serve. Women were robbed of their ability to make decisions for themselves and became mere objects.
This isn’t a man vs woman issue to me anymore. This is an US issue. Because we are all imbalanced and need to reclaim what we lost! But i will say that men still have the upper hand in making these long overdue changes, in standing up against the abuse of patriarchy, and they need help from the feminine to do this.
Whatever issues you have with androgeny, gender fluidity, trans, my take is that it’s the necessary evolutionary response to what has become of us.
I could go on but let me finish by saying that I SEE YOU AND LOVE YOU!!!

Man

love a man

If you want to change the world… love a man… really love him…

Love the man whose soul clearly calls to yours… the man who sees you… the man who has enough courage to be afraid…

He accepts his hand and gently guides it deep into your heart where he can feel your warmth and rest…and burn his heavy burden in your fire…

Look him in the eye…find his parents and grandparents and those wars where their spirits fought…in distant lands in ancient times…find his pains and fights and torments and guilt without judgment…and let it all go…let go…feel his ancestral burden…
what he seeks is a safe haven in you…let him melt into his steady gaze knowing you don’t need to mirror that fury…because you have a womb…a deep sweet door…to wash and renew old wounds…

If you want to change the world… love a man… really love him…

Sit before him… in the full majesty of your femininity… in the breath of your vulnerability… in the play of your childlike innocence… in the depths of your death…

invite him to blossom… softly surrendered… and allow his masculine power to step towards you… and swim together in the womb of the earth in silent knowing…
and when he retreats…because he will…escaping in fear to his cave…gather your grandmothers around you…wrapped in their wisdom…listen to their tender whispers…calming your frightened childish heart…inviting you to stillness…and patiently await his return …sit and sing by his door…a song of remembrance…that he can calm down once again…If you want to change the world…love a man…really love him…

do not deceive his little boy…with guile and trickery and seduction and witchcraft…only to trap him in a destructive web of chaos and hatred more terrible than all the wars his brothers have fought…that is not feminine…it is revenge…it is the poison of the corrupt bloodline… of the abuse of the ages… of the violation of our world…
that does not give power to the woman… but it reduces her while she castrates him and kills us all… and if her mother could not support him, show him a true woman now support him and guide him with your grace and depth…
