Feminine energy is all you need to conquer the world.
No man can truly be King until he is willing to take responsibility not just for himself, but for the entire world around him.
Until then, he might get rich, but all he’ll have is money.
Last night, I watched the recent remake of “King Arthur”with my lady and my step-father, all cozied up on a couch with 2 Bernese Mountain Dogs and our little Golden Yellowjhan, fireplace crackling in the background.
You probably haven’t seen it. I’d heard it was not very good.
But we wanted to watch something all 3 of us could enjoy. My step-father is that classic man’s man: He loves action, particularly battle scenes where lots of men kill each other. Silvy loves period pieces and stories of emotional intrigue. I love expansive epics.
This one seemed to have all 3 and it was fascinating!
It has everything you need to know about the evolution of The Masculine from boy to King, why most men get stuck in perpetual adolescence, and how truly powerful we – man or woman – become when we finally learn to embrace Feminine energy.
King Arthur is the story of a boy who does all he can to avoid his destiny. He has a good heart, defending those close to him with vigor, but the rest of the world?
He’s far more preoccupied with accumulating wealth and living unnoticed by the bigger powers that would destroy him, that are already destroying the rest of the world.
In other words, like many men today – including myself in many ways – he stubbornly resists taking any real responsibility for what lives beyond his own self-serving concerns.
And there’s no wise elder men present to show him how.
One day, a good wizard shows up to guide him towards his destiny.
This wizard is a woman … naturally.
Naturally, he resists and mocks her, even after she saves his life.
So what does this mysterious Feminine muse do to get him to wake up?
She sets upon him all kinds of terrible experiences – confrontations with Death – which he must survive so he may finally be worthy of his birthright as King.
“Not all of him can live”
..she says as we see him desperately fighting off giant rats and monster-fanged snakes.
Of course not. No man can become the King he was born to be so long as his frightened inner adolescent who refuses to grow up remains in control.
This is why women test the men they love, over and over and over.
Not necessarily consciously. Very rarely skillfully.
Still, she refuses to be “easy” for him to “deal with.”
After all, how can she know if a man is truly oriented towards Love if he isn’t pushed beyond the limits of his own logic?
That’s the Great Gift of the Feminine most men – and most women, too – fail to grasp.
She orients us towards Love.
When we refuse to embrace Her influence in our lives, we orient towards shit that doesn’t matter – money, orgasm, self-inflation.
Did you see Wonder Woman?
My favorite scene is on the battlefield where the “good guys” have taken Wonder Woman to accomplish their shared mission of stopping the enemy and saving all humanity.
In a dirty trench she meets a suffering woman who tells WW of her village’s impending demise just 100 yards away, across a heavily defended front.
The men insist on pulling WW away from this woman, to keep her focused on the “larger mission” as they understand it.
“We can’t help these people. We must continue on our mission. You can’t go onto that battlefield; you’ll get killed. It’s NO MAN’S LAND,” they literally say.
Ahhhh … isn’t that the lament of so many men?
