Even when a man is beautiful he has something of the feminine. When a woman is ugly she has something of the male. Beauty is feminine because it cannot be hard, it cannot be stonelike. It can only be like the petals of a rose or a lotus…
So never try to prevent your feminine heart from taking possession of you. We have been taught from the very childhood, ‘Don’t be a sissy, don’t be a girl, don’t be girlish. Be a man!’ By man they have meant: be a chauvinist, be an egoist, be aggressive — because life is a competition, a struggle, a survival for the fittest, so be violent.
That stage of being violent and barbarian has passed! NOW EVERYBODY CAN AFFORD TO BE FEMININE. The century of the feminine is just on the verge of beginning.
