Every single person has both a masculine and a feminine side. This basic polarization is a part of you whether you are a man or a woman. Effectively, masculinity originates from a place of power where strength is at the top end of the scale. On the contrary, femininity comes from goodness. The earth and Mother Nature has female aspects. To get in contact with the earth, it means getting in touch with the feminine side of an individual; it is not specifically about gender itself
You can develop the goodness of the feminine side by having deep confidence in the value of the life of others, and you can develop the strength of the masculine side by having a deep belief in the value of your own life. How developed one side is compared to the other identifies the balance between the feminine and masculine sides. This sense of balance not only decides upon how you treat others in relation to yourself, but also what kinds of emotions you feel stronger
The male aspect is mainly based on a value you place on yourself, while the female aspect is based, at the same deep level, on a value that you place on others
Why is it important for guys to connect with their feminine side? Well, the value you place on people shapes your whole being. If you have a well-built feminine side and put a high value on others, you are mostly thoughtful, unselfish, and giving. You know what is good for others and you are likely to help them succeed in life. People will feel more comfortable being around you since they won’t find any egoism or selfishness in you
So here you notice that having a feminine side doesn’t always mean doing feminine chores or girly things. It is much more than that; it is more about the inner self
