I am not a practicer or follower of these fantastic movements or ways.

What I figured out in my own dark part of the universe solo (thanks to traditional views and patriarchal raising I dealt with). That for several decades my male spirit 100% went into keeping up the stoic wall, and the female warrior is what tried to fight the demons.

I looked at my masculine self akin to a glass boy which hosted the flame and fire of masculinity. Trauma(s) pulverized the boy into fine silica glass while both warriors cried.

It took time realizing (and becoming a feminist and looking at things from a feminine perspective as much as I could) and embracing that side to rebuild my masculinity.

I know it may not jive with your view or teachings, but it is something I learned and observed now that I have a gorilla glass boy receptive to touch. The issue now is how to get and keep the masculine flame lit and alive since it was so damaged for decades.

All I know is I have two warriors to defend the boy and live life now ....
