Masculine and Feminine Power

Lord Krisha says, “Radha is neither separate nor different from me. Radha is within me and I am within Radha. In every man, there is a woman and in every woman there is a man. This is balancing the whole universe.”

The whole world is in competition mode and wants more.  People are hungry of power. Have you noticed, how many brands have in supermarkets? How many brands are you using, few! But we are behind more…. more brands, more salary, more cars….

The reason is competition of being ahead and survival. These few characteristics are of masculine mentality, mindset and therefore of masculine power… These characteristics are everywhere in business, society, families and communities. We are paying the price of this masculine energy. Terrorism, aggression, bullying, bossing, stress, burnout and rat race for being successful…  

There is another energy approach feminine energy...

Collaboration, success, cooperation are few characteristics of feminine energy. Instead of competition, as a means, to success, using cooperation; an approach of service and win-win solutions; Instead of criticism, the use of acknowledgements...

As we grow, we have the influence of these both energies. We get something from our parent, from society, from peers and from siblings. All these have both energies. We learn from male members and female members. This makes our personality. If the masculine influence is more, we tend to be more powerful, aggressive and so on. If feminine influence is more we are humble, collaborative and understanding. This is nothing related to the gender, either man or woman… both energies exits among us and we should learn to use the both as appropriate time.  
     
Take an example at workplace, we have a “boss”… masculine energy and we have a “leader” as feminine energy. In organization, we have accepted the masculine approach of discipline, performance, span of control etc etc... Imagine the situation, where the task is stuck. Manager asks the reasons, fires and gives instructions. Leader, here, acknowledges the efforts taken by the team member and focuses on solutions   

The balance of masculine and feminine approach is important. You can not enforced one approach. Only masculine energy will increase conflicts, and only feminine energy will miss the performance and discipline. Both characteristics are important. Forget about the gender, learn about the past and focus what are those masculine and feminine characteristics. Balancing both will make your perfect person at office, home, in society…
