Mixin' it Up

I was recently informed from several sources that i was showing up in my masculine power because that is what i saw modeled in the world i wish to change. The systems we have were built from that masculine energy, the problem being that "these are the systems we have" and not the ones we need!

This behavior was blocking the feminine which is what is needed to balance the energies that may allow us to take a giant step forward.

It sometimes feels as if this world eats hearts alive, so displaying that heart is asking for trouble. Yet this is a false belief, for the strong, brave and loving heart has more true power than the fearful and withholding one.

Then again, soft behavior feels like "the lesser approach" in the patriarchal paradigm, so this takes some work to overcome!

This divided power might be why the current system is collapsing in on itself. Whatever, it's time to experiment, to be innovative, to design for a new, slow economy that celebrates life and relationships not just stuff.

Don't let perfect get in the way of good!
& don't let goods get in the way of life!
