Integrating Masculine Energies into the Feminine Heart
Sword: Feminine Archetype of Life
Does she walk
Breast of maze,
of integrating masculine
energies into the feminine
patterns, we are drawn
to the sword.
Whole woman can
call upon either
feminine or masculine
energies, yet not lose
the essence of her inner
You, as the feminine
wants the Power of
the sword, but may
fear the effect of
hard, cold steel,
nurturing the quality
of your soft, warm
The shadow, the
part of the female
where emotion, desire,
and fiery hot passion
creates titanium, the
"stuff" of life.
Warrioress, there is
value in knowing your
Sweet or rotten,
good or evil,
shadow in art has
A dueling event
that places us in
Yes, she walks

|a balanced perspective of the feminine mystique and its interplay within the forces of light and darkness ...|
|Reviewed by Barbara Terry
|We are the mystique that men fear when our ire is up. We are the power from the mind that can make things happen. We are the nurturing, caring part of the mysique that forms in our breasts that the ones we nuture are safe. Yes Sage, she does walk amongst us, and she gives us the courage to fight on, in this world of men, where when we say something, those same men think it is funny. Our determination is our sword that lets us fight on and win over the men who will keep us in second place. Soon, I certainly do hope, that woman shall over shadow man, and be in control. We are in control now, and it is OUR world, not theirs, because the sword of our determination will not let us shuffle behind man no more. Thnx for sharing sis. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, maybe too stubborn for my own good, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your still very sad and very terrified little sister, Barbie

to the sword.'

|The feminine warrioress is very much alive in our world, and always has been since Helen of Troy, Queen Boadecia, and Joan of Arc !
I align myself with Joseph's take on the gender duality of man and woman below !
A very absorbing and interesting pen Sage

|Oooo... I like this one... kinda swashbuckling yet tenderly surgical at the same time. I particularly like the balance, the duel, the sword-dance of the two female combatants, shadow and overt-self, which spurs the female on to self-awareness, self-discovery and self-amelioration... presumably producing an enhanced self-knowledge and self-esteem. "En garde and know thyself" seems good to me! :)) Love the power conjured by the harnessing of the two parts. And I like how you portray the female fascination with cold, sharp steel as opposed to the male one... is it so very different, do you think? Very provoking, Sage, thank you. Kate xx|

Even males have a "feminine" side yet most are fearful of acknowledging, let alone, embracing it because of the mis-perception of being "weak". I truly don't understand this line of thinking. I believe that we are all both Yin & Yang and one simply cannot replace the other without sacrificing the Whole. I, for one, am grateful for the blessing of this understanding ... yet I still have so much to learn. :) It is one of the things that makes this life so rich.
Love & Light,
