Looking for the Divine Masculine
To be male includes being a loving human being. Historically, males are the protectors, the warriors, the bread winners and implanters of the seed of life. Women were thought of as the carriers of the vessel of love or the caretakers of the heart, the receivers of the seed of life.
As a male in this society, I was raised by a strong woman who felt there were no sex assigned jobs. There were just jobs that needed to be done. I learned to change diapers, wash and iron clothes and cook. My sisters learned to mow lawns, work on cars and manage decision making, and the budgets of the household. Unity and balance creates a higher sense of wholeness.
My mother felt we were all equal in our being and should participate as people of this planet.
To care about the planet, it is the job of people is not just the job of womankind. Men of this planet need to be compassionate caretakers of their families, communities and our planet.
To be a caretaker, historically, was not to be thought of as being masculine. That was thought to be women’s work. Caretaking is a human quality utilized by human beings acting in support of themselves, their families and communities.
I must disagree on the lack of heart existing within the makeup of the divine masculine. Being a man includes having and displaying the art of having a heart which includes caring about the welfare of the planet. If men are historically the protectors of their womankind, I feel Mother Earth should be included within the umbrella of protection.
Should Father Sky have more power than Mother Earth? Should there be shared power and who has more power, divine feminine or divine masculine? Is the ocean more important than the lips of the earth’s shore?
Should women man the protection of the planet?
We are here on this planet to engage in life, be loving in life, to address our weaknesses and turn them into strengths. We are the echo of life.
