I will write about femininity in a context of being in relationship with other people. What does femininity mean in a context with others when I do not think about gender? I want to write about language as a feminine source. We are all in a state of femininity when we speak a language free from force.
In the coming week no 03-2018, my Instagram posts will reflect on femininity in relations. I do the reflections through quotes and captions, linked to illustrative images. Feel free to follow me on https://www.instagram.com/mostadjon/.
Languages are tools for exploration and conquest. Languages are tools for power and war. Language is a tool for care and education. Language is also one of our important tools in the construction of new self-awareness and awakened consciousness. The blog you are currently reading is the third in a number where I discuss languages as modality for action. We can shape our language so that the power we want to manifest becomes a reality. I have blogged about globality as the holistic and physical power of the language. I have also blogged about ecology as the language's sustaining and renewing power. Here I write about the modality of femininity as the the language's life-giving and implementing power.
Femininity is the future scenario we humans should attract.
Theosophy explains the manifestation of the universe through three creative sources. The masculine source is the performance. The ability of the creative force to express itself through images. The feminine source is the movement. The ability of the creative force to express itself through movement. The association of performance and movement, gives consciousness. The child of the two. Movement is explained as the universe's ability to feed the performances into life. By studying ancient Egyptian statues of gods, we can see how the feminine god (the movement) leads the masculine god (the performance) into life and therefore into action.
Femininity is the manifestation of giving life. Femininity is is to see and to be seen. Femininity is the focus on movement through the development of care and knowledge. Exactly as the good caregiver cares for a child.
The feminine modality of the language is about seeing each other, confirming each other and following each other into action. By meeting, supporting and protecting each other, we speak the feminine modality. Only by daring to learn and therefore also to succeed in other ways than provided, we can learn. We only learn through physical, mental and mental relocation. Just here is the femininity the source offered by the universe.
When you speak through the feminine modality, you speak by support from the universe's life-giving source.
Let me give you an example of what I mean by the universe's life-giving source. You know the dandelion? This little translate flower in the ditch. It grows in dirt and muddy water. You have probably also seen how it grow through asphalt in the roadway. Without letting go, it refuses to give up. It will reconcile its yellow busted head with the sun's warm and nourishing rays. It will be short and good up and running. The dandelion is a survivor. The dandelion overcomes the biggest obstacles and it reaches its purpose without using force. The dandelion grows through source. We can not see this force that works through the dandelion, nor does it have its name and it can not be explained. The ancient Chinese natural philosophers called it the source of TAO. I'm talking about nature's second creative source; the movement. The dandelion carries on an idea of what it means to be a dandelion, and up to this picture it moves.
We witness the creative universe feminine power.
Futures that come will require new forms of relationships. The future I want to attract is a forceless future image. When I choose a forceless performance, I can put it to life by speaking a language that moves, a feminine language.
When I speak femininity, I hear what does not sound, see what does not form and understand what is not thought.
