The zeitgeist of masculinity has changed a lot in the last 60 or so years, where we have seen a massive shift from un-integrated masculine to un-integrated feminine in men. This shows up in men connected to their emotions and capacity to feel. It’s an important step towards integration, but when stuck here, the masculine looses clarity, direction, and can’t connect to his purpose or give his gifts to the feminine.
If you as a man are stuck here, you will find yourself in de-polarised relationships, wondering where your vitality and aliveness has gone; how you lost your balls on the journey; and beginning to buy the lie that masculinity is somehow inherently ‘toxic’.
Whilst we’ve been given the impression that this is the end point, there is in fact another important step to take: that of integrating the feminine you’ve recently (in evolutionary terms) got in contact with, in with your innate masculine. When these two polarities are integrated and in balance with each other, the masculine part of you brings clarity, boundary, and direction to your feminine capacity to feel and sense outside yourself, and together you become aware of and fired up to deliver your masculine PURPOSE to the world.
In other words: Raw Innate Masculine + Cultivated Feminine = Masculine Purpose
