Real Masculinity Is In Sacrificing Oneself For The Greater Good of The Society, Not Dominating Egotistically: It is said that men should always be ready to sacrifice their individual self for the wellbeing of their family; and their family for their country; and their country for the world. ?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Men are polygamists by nature. In order to meet their esteem needs and to attract the opposite sex, they tend to gather money, power, fame, etc. However, such gatherings I feel are not of great value if they are not being used for the benefit of the larger society in some way. It might lead to the development of unnecessary ego, pride, and arrogance which could be dangerous for that individual’s spiritual growth. ✖⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
History doesn’t remember those who have done well only for themselves. Those who keep some kind of mission above their own life are real men. The great ones don’t hesitate in investing their blood, sweat, and tears for the greater good of society. ❤
Real Femininity Is In Creatively Being The All-Inclusive Mother To The World, Not Sensualising Shamelessly: Right now, if I search #yoga on instagram, the majority of pictures that will come up will be of semi-naked women who just couldn’t find a better way to fulfil their need for attention. It saddens me deeply that how western society and bollywood culture has conditioned us into believing that felinity is equal to sensuality which is totally wrong. For a lot of people, feminism is equal to the right of women to go naked on the streets. This is it. They are not talking about how they are collecting funds to open up schools for girls, or protecting them from trafficking and prostitution, or how they are creating jobs for women at higher ranks, or how they are dealing with domestic violence and rapes, etc. They just want the freedom to go naked. Period. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Feminists argue that it is her choice if she wears or not wears anything. To which I ask, what if men start doing the same thing? What if men start sensualizing their sexual organs? Will such acts of nudity still be considered right? Few shameless among us will love all this kind of nonsense and definitely say yes. But, the rest of us know that we have evolved and are done behaving like animals. We live in a civilised world and should act accordingly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Probably only in the Indian culture, Feminine worship is fully on. There are more Devi temples than anything else in this country. We have always valued feminine and recognised feminine’s superiority; and thus, worshipped them and still bow down. It is wish that the feminine regains her real quality and flourishes on the planet. ?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Merging The Two Polarities Within Ourselves Is The Secret To Evolution: Masculine & Feminine, Yin & Yang, Ida & Pingala, Shiva & Shakti are referring to same two polarities. There is a story in the yogic lore where Shiva absorbed Parvati and made her a part of himself which is symbolical reference to the two polarities merging into one being. When the merging happens externally because of our compulsions, it is never complete. It mainly happens on the physical level only. However, the goal of spiritual seekers should be to merge them internally by doing the right inward oriented spiritual practises.
