Willing and able: the dance of the feminine and masculine
The integrity (dancing) of “willing and able.”
Willingness is the feminine polarity. After the naivete of infancy, then the survival-promoting rebelliousness of youth, next is the divine feminine quality of willingness (as distinct from willfulness). Related are these proverbs from the Old and New Testaments: “Thy will be done, not mine; I commit my spirit to you; I do these things not from my own ambitions and interests, but fulfilling the will of the one who sends/forms/expresses as me.”
Feminine willingness (trust, openness, capacity) is the clearing for masculine ability (functionality, innovation, manifestation). In absence of the feminine energy, the masculine is like some equipment that could be functional if only there was some fuel or electricity. The masculine is completely impotent without the feminine. The feminine, however, is the source of the masculine.
Commitment is distinct from willingness. Commitment is the natural blossoming of a whole root system of willingness into a single stalk/trunk. When the root system of willingness matures/develops to the point of ABILITY to produce, then, automatically, inspiration and commitment are produced. Inspiration and commitment ALWAYS result in action, which results in learning, then the development of competence, then the ability to efficiently produce/manifest.
The root system of willingness (the feminine) produces the trunk of ability (the masculine), and these two together- as long as there is still the flow of the fuel/electricity of the feminine root system of willingness- AUTOMATICALLY (and mysteriously) produce the fruit, manifest the offspring, transform into the butterfly. The feminine caterpillar is willing to make the masculine cocoon shell and not know what is next- not even thinking about caterpillars or butterflies.
Femininity precipitates masculinity (produces it). Masculinity without the support of a root system of feminine intuition may strive, struggle, strategize, and so on, but such is the vanity of suffering, the cynicism of victimhood, the impotence of being “at the effect” of apparent changing circumstances, the reactionary pre-occupations of fixing the symptoms of a disintegrating illusion, or using a metaphor that I learned from David Icke, combing the mirror… rather than combing one’s hair so that the reflection is effected, rather than mistaken for the cause.
