The Feminine is relationship: between ourselves and every form of life.

We are all separate beings and all one. Behind the form of any being is shimmering energy, the energy of life. If we could see the world and every living creature including plant life, as that energy, we would see the connection. When the body dies the energy being goes on, it can never die.

What the Feminine, the Feminine aspect of the Divine, wants from us, is that we see each other. We meet. We see each other without projection, then nothing is in the way of being with that other being. This is the evolutionary plan. If you see someone, whether that being is a person, an animal, a tree, whoever, then it’s a very sacred experience of meeting, in which no harm is possible. If we could see in this way, we would never harm each other.

At present, life is organised according to Masculine Reality and to the demands of making money. We go to school and we learn to read and write. We love. In Masculine structures such as school and university, we are taught Masculine skills. Some of these are essential, like the ability to read and write and do maths. The Feminine essential skills, the subtlety of loving and relating, the need for boundaries, the sacredness of matter, kindness and the care for body and soul, are yet to be acknowledged by women as bodies of knowledge. I know of many women who are doing great work, in a Feminine way, but find it so difficult to write down what they know without Masculine approval. This will change. If you are one of these women, just start somewhere and you will start to build the connections inside that have always been there but were not supported in school or university.

There’s a difference between loving and relating. Love is an energy which can be an expression of the soul and the personality, including the body. Relating is about sameness and difference and is independent of any sexual connection or experience with that other being. I think that one of the saddest things in life is that use, in a Masculine world, to describe the person you love and have sex with as ‘my relationship’. It excludes the intimacy that is possible with so many other beings and the reality of what it means to be a women.
