Last year when I was still part of the corporate circuit in Europe as a business consultant and project manager myself, I went out with a woman colleague for lunch. She told me that her boss recently made a sarcastic comment in the performance appraisal meeting to her, saying she should smile and laugh less in the office, otherwise she gives an impression of not being professional and capable enough.
I told her to find a new job and tell this man to seek therapy for years of constipated emotions and suppression.
Another woman client of mine told me that even a hint of wearing feminine clothes or expressing emotions in workplace gives her the anxiety of being sneered at by majority of frustrated men colleagues in her department. So she has learnt to hide her real essence inside and has created layers of layers of shells around to handle the diseased swamps of frustrations she encounters everyday. She tries to copy the men colleagues and their ways around to get their approval, knowing all the time that she is disrespecting, even insulting her own uniqueness, capability and energy.
And many such stories continue.
My point is that the feminine is disappearing. It does not mean that Masculine is thriving. Ironically even the masculine is disappearing, maybe even faster. But lets talk about Feminine here and then talk about masculine in coming articles.
I think the women in the world need to wake up and really commence a journey in search of their own cosmic depth and powers. I don't see women being emancipated yet. I think in their hearts and their minds, they are still following the rules, instead of creating their own rules which are consistent with their own heart's truth and depth. I think the women are compromising far too much for the sake of not rocking the boat and paying a terrible price of becoming strangers to their own souls.
I think it's time that women smash the old patterns of previous centuries and start a journey to get in touch with their own soul and their own powers.
And when a woman start waking up to her own depth, then she will start becoming a tremendous gift to those men in the world who respect the feminine energy and who want to learn and gain from her influence. And that's when a healthy revival of masculine and feminine energies will begin.
I try to sketch this further in my poetry series Flames of the Blood Woman (36 small e-books of poems I wrote in the last few years).
