Dear Wise Women,
I lovingly share with you the various readings and sharing of today (and some that I did not share) so that you may integrate them at a deeper level, should doing so speak to you.
BALANCING THE MASCULINE AND FEMININE IN YOU
(re-sharing…just because it feels so important)
To further our understanding of the balancing of Feminine and Masculine, let us explore the basic laws of nature and the workings of the one original energy, the Tao.
We Are Made of the Life Energy Signal - Chi
It is not the mind itself that is the problem, it is the activity of the identified and trapped mind, or what Micheal Singer calls the voice in our head. This negative and destructive voice in our head is the single most destructive factor leading towards Chi imbalance. Given this, many of us have been inclined to try to stop our mind from thinking or certainly to rid ourselves of negative thoughts. If you’ve ever tried this you can attest that this approach, especially when motivated by control, never works! But there is another way. When we view our thoughts with COMPASSION, gently WITNESS them, and SOFTEN to them an inner alchemy occurs. Loving-kindness and benevolent curiosity has the power to restore harmony and return any imbalance to its true nature.
Who better to guide us to compassion and mercy than Kuan Yin?
