This is a strange topic for me to right up about, I’m not sure how accurate I’m going to be but I will do my best on what I know and remember about the divine feminine and masculine energies. I thought I would start by inserting a reply I gave to the second link displayed in this post.
I came across someone recently talking up the divine feminine but in the same breath talking down masculine energy. To me the divine feminine energy isn't about talking down anything including the masculine energy, it's nurturing/valuing not neglecting or mistreating in a bias manner and it's certainly not judgmental.
It is obvious that the masculine energy has been abused but it doesn't make the masculine bad in some way just misrepresented by our actions. Yes the masculine has to judge, how else would it know to protect, if a lion was about to attack a child, the masculine energy becomes instantly protective and aggressive. This of course doesn't matter if one is male or female; actually because the female is maternal the female will probably be more aggressive in her protection especially concerning her own children.
I found the following links explained both the divine feminine and masculine energies quite well.
Extract: The Healthy Divine Feminine offers tenderness, wisdom, patience, nurturing, flexibility and fertility. Feminine intuition is one of our most powerful tools for guidance, and we all have it.
The Healthy Divine Masculine is fearless, courageous and loyal. “He” is our guardian protector. When in balance, the masculine protector does no harm. His gentle strength brings harmony and peace to where there was conflict and separation.
Extract: While the Goddess and Divine Feminine movement has allowed for the gradual uprising and recognition of the beauty and sacred connection of the feminine (most often embodied by the female), all too often it is in its own denial of the beauty and benefits that the Spiritualised masculine energy can bring to the party.
I think what some of us are doing is confusing divine energies with Earthly energies, earthly energies aren’t divine energies, they are reprehensive of our physicality where’s the divine are more representative of our heavenly/celestial energies. Some people call these heavenly/celestial energies our spiritual selves but to me all of what’s created by these heavenly/celestial energies is of the spiritual.
Divine energy is heavenly/celestial, everything other than this is earthly or of the physicality of ourselves, these energies are quite different. Earthly energies are noticeably of judgement; they have to be to exist in such a physical reality. I have a view if you judge this reality of being judgemental or wrong /negative in some way you are only expressive of the Earthly feminine/masculine energies and not the divine feminine within. I might be wrong but the divine feminine energy can’t judge for in giving judgement one becomes aggressive, the divine energy isn’t aggressive. The divine feminine energy to me is nurturing of all without judgement.
So what about the divine masculine, is it aggressive therefore judgemental like the Earthly masculine energies? Just like the divine feminine, the divine masculine is somewhat different to the earthly masculine, the divine mescaline judges where’s the earthly masculine can be judgemental. Again there is a big difference between judging and being judgmental, judging can be very constructive like saving a child from drowning or a lion attack or being creative in anyway however being judgemental is seeing a wrong and a right. I have a view, which might not be correct of course, that there is no wrong or rights in the divine. The universe was created through no wrong or rights in mind that is why not all planets are like Earth, if the universe was created through a judgmental view every planet, solar system and galaxies would be the same but it’s not.
The divine judges what will be created but it’s not in judgement on how they will be created because there are no wrong or rights, Jupiter isn’t wrong just because it can’t sustain life as we know it, it’s just a creation with no wrong or rights attached. We are creations from the divine, are any of us wrong or right compared to each other? The divine, either it be of the feminine or masculine energies, is not in judgement of a wrong or right but the earthly feminine and masculine energies can be, they don’t have to be though. It is obvious we have abused our masculine energies but is there a wrong or right in this? To the divine no but to the earthly yes, at the earthly level we are in judgment but again we don’t have to be, this isn’t mandatory just because we are living on an earthly plane.
The divine in all of us isn’t judgemental of a wrong or right, it judges what to create like conceiving children for instance, we judge to have children or not and when we will bring a child into the world but where not being judgemental in this. Being judgmental is like thinking all children are spoilt brats therefore are wrong so we won’t conceive children.
I could be very wrong in this but I see the divine feminine and masculine energies being quite different to our earthly feminine and masculine energies, I think we really need to beware of this difference. The divine does not judge a wrong or right, there are no wrong or rights in the divine energies but of course that is just my opinion.
