While this dance routine is about domestic violence, (the outer battle) it can be seen and felt as much more. It can be seen as the violence (inner battle) between Spirit (mind) Male – and the Will, (Intuition, feelings, emotions) Female…. Where the Mind is in control of its feelings and emotions and allows no movement other than those that are aligned with the Minds beliefs and hidden agenda.
I saw this meme and comment on my timeline and felt I needed to post it, along with the comment.. It’s a good visual representation of how empaths, people that have real feelings and emotions try to survive in a world of people that pretend to have feelings and emotions. They are constantly denying and pushing away the parts that they feel are not acceptable to those they are trying to be like..The more they try to be like “them,” the more they become less of who they truly are.

This meme is a classic misconception that is based on our present day patriarchal society, where men are considered strong and leaders because they don’t show their feelings and emotions, while women are considered weak and submissive because they have more acceptance to show their feelings and emotions. Some men are emotional… and some women are not emotional, but only pretend to be… just as some men do. So the gender battle really is misguided as each human being has within their divine Being, both a masculine Mind (thoughts, ideas, logic, reason) and a feminine Will (feelings, emotion, intuition, knowing, etc) When you really think about it, the real gender battle is within you… with your mind controlling and suppressing your feelings and emotions.. End that, and your outer reality also changes.
If you’re a follower of the Christian religion, you have undoubtedly heard of the following biblical quote.. “Love your enemies.” Christian doctrine would have you believe that the loving thing to do is to turn the other cheek and forgive their unloving actions (self sacrifice) . In doing so you deny any expression that you were harmed, and subtly imply the judgment that you are better than them. Of course denial doesn’t work, and while they may temporary befriend you, you still carry the unresolved wound that is not as forgiven as you may think. Food for thought… or not 🙂
