Many people think joy is a nice feeling but that it is a side note in life, not important, nor is it practical. This thinking is limited, and it is also limiting us. We need joy because of its importance, value, and practical benefits.
Right now, the world is in the grips of grim energies. These negative energies are destroying us. There is a fundamental belief that drives these energies: life is like a war. If we keep treating life as a war, we will continue to have war. Because we have been acting out views of scarcity and war, we have cemented in the minds of many that this is what life is. We have stopped imagining any alternatives. As a result, many people seek new ways because they know this is wrong and because we can not afford the damage of the war mindset. Our negative attitudes have become too expensive in human and ecological terms.
Structures And Goals VS Process And Thriving.
Masculine energies are active, goal-oriented, associated with logic, and seeking control. In its healthy aspect, it can be a great energy to cultivate when building something since these energies create structure. We have created a lot of wonderful infrastructures to support us and make life liveable.
Focus and goals, as important as they are, can become short-sighted. in addition, if we focus only on some goals we may not notice when conditions change, and we need to change also.
Feminine energy is more of a listening energy. It notices conditions in the environment from a different lens. It notices energy shifts, including when conditions change. It can observe when we become overfocused on a goal or project to the detriment of other necessities.
Balance is one of the benefits of listening with feminine energies, but it is important to understand we are talking about a balance that supports our full thriving. This is where feminine energy is especially useful to us right now since human activity has created a world wildly out of balance with the needs of the natural world. If we want a world with genuine thriving, we need to listen to energies that push back against our excesses.
Joy Is The Result Of Balanced Thriving.
It is worth taking stock of your own life and projects. In what way are you sacrificing too much in one area to succeed in another? Are you sacrificing your health for work? Are you sacrificing long-term stability for a great lifestyle today? We can ask the same questions of our society. We can use those questions to reconsider how we treat the earth.
There is a wonderful feeling that comes from living in a way that honors goodness in all aspects of life. It is the feeling of joy That comes from the balancing talent that the wise feminine brings us. As we become more ecological in how we think and live, we need the wise feminine to help us become wiser in how we live. The result will be a natural joy in how we feel about life, ourselves, and each other.
The Downsides Of Our Current Way Lead To A Beautiful New Way.
We have long had a negative attitude toward people and life-controlling our individual and societal choices. We must start recognizing and valuing the good in all aspects of life, including the good in people. False negativity has created a lot of social and environmental dysfunction.
The return of the wise feminine means we can create a world where joy becomes a common experience. We owe it to ourselves and all our ancestors to honor the beautiful work that has gotten us this far so that we finally, as a species, get to make this shift to a joy-based world. I hope you become a part of this shift.
