Willing and able: the dance of the feminine and masculine

Masculine wave

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.

    In distinguishing the simplicity of “trust uncompromisingly,” I also am reminded of some scriptures. First, some sayings from The Invitation by Oriah Mountain Dreamer:

    I want to know…
    if you can be faithless
    and therefore trustworthy.

    I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
    for love
    for your dream
    for the adventure of being alive.

    Trust uncompromisingly…. like even a little child. One may wonder: what does this mean? Does it mean to ignore an instinctive, intuitive “warning,” or just the opposite, or what? Here are some saying attributed to Jesus that I think of:

    “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” Luke 17:18, Mark 10:15

    Here is Matthew 18:1-4, NIV

    The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven

    1At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”

    2He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

    Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Those who want to come with me [into the kingdom of heaven?] must say no to the things they want, pick up their crosses, and follow me.”
    Matthew 16:24, Luke 9:23, Mark 8:34

    “He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me [even one’s entire life as one knows it so far] is not worthy of Me. Whoever does not carry his own cross and follow Me cannot be My disciple.” Matthew 10:37-38, Luke 14:26-27

    “In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has [does that mean just possessions, or even attachments, pre-occupations, beliefs?] cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:33

    “Trust uncompromisingly,” as I mean it, has nothing to do with reliance or dependency on a particular someone or something- not even a book or religious tradition [See Mark 7:7]. Trust God uncompromisingly.


    In the presence of life, changing as one with all, trusting uncompromisingly.
