Union of the Mind and Body Through the Terrain of the Heart
The Waffle Man and the Spaghetti Woman
Union of the mind and body begins with the thinking mind (specifically the cerebral cortex). This is the source of our masculine energetic expression. You can think of its expression like a waffle: compartmentalized, linear, rational etc. Most of us find ourselves quite adept at traversing this realm.
The body (as well as the cerebellum) is the source of our feminine energetic expression. The expression here is more like a bowl of spaghetti: Interconnected, irrational, chaotic. This realm is often less understood and most are far less adept here.
Expression of the Mind, Body and Heart
The mind holds masculine gifts of penetration, containment, witnessing, presence, and action that are the key to honoring and expressing the feminine energy within the body.
The Gardener and the Flower
The Gardener patiently offers his presence to witness the flower, listening intently for the signals given that let him know what actions need to be taken in order to cultivate the fullest bloom (opening within the body).
The flower is ever present and honoring the state of the bloom (expansion or contraction in the body). Ever aware of the unique essence, gifts and wisdom held within, and only releasing them to the actions that meet the needs and desires for connection, witnessing and opening.
