• finding the feminine •
I was talking to the girl, sharing with her my hypothesis about a bicameral mind, whereas having an actual “split”, or dual thinking capacity, that either ‘mind’ may work, not only in conjunction with it’s ‘other’ self, but independently: and so, no reason why there can’t actually be two very different “persons”, within each and every individual human being. As I said, an hypothesis, but I allowed that my ‘other’ might be actually ‘feminine’.
Now, lets look at that word, ‘feminine’, for a second.
If feminine means, I have an intuitive, creative, and imaginative aspect, then I am feminine, to a tee.
If feminine means, I am a creative problem solver, willing to try just about anything to help my family, then I am feminine.
If feminine means, I am willing and able to endure hardship and go without sleep, in a thankless capacity, to help my friends and family, then I am feminine.
If feminine means, in fact, that I would be ready, willing and able to take a life, or give my own, to save my own children under dire circumstances, then I am definitely feminine.
If feminine means, being able to endure obstacles of every sort imaginable, and still have my dignity, then I am feminine.
The list goes on an on, all strengths, you see? The girl said all that sounded O.K. with her. Happy daddy, me!!
My masculine me, is there, as well, of course, but he’s such a puppy.
