Of course, the feminine is exploited. That is its quality. It rests, it carries and it nourishes the infant at its breast. The infant who is the only one allowed to be selfish. The only one who is only allowed to take, because he is still too weak in the world.
The conclusion drawn from this, that one must abolish the feminine in order not to be exploited, is a complete fallacy that could only come from people who have already no longer felt their devoted feminine. Who were already only in the male struggle for survival, in the fear of death.
The feminine, the soulful, the nurturing, the selfless is protected by the masculine. In man himself, in society, in the world. The masculine serves the feminine and the feminine gives itself in love. The masculine – which also carries within it a surrendering feminine, like everything else and always so – acts in love. Inwardly and outwardly. That is the principle of balance. That is the principle of chivalry. The strong, the acting sits at the feet of the resting, eternal knowing and acts in harmony with this fearless, eternal knowing of the cycle and the meaning. The eternally knowing gives birth to the world, sustains life and the acting acts without self-interest in joy and love and without fear of death.
How is it with us: the masculine acts. Alone. For himself. It forces the feminine to take him to its breast and nourish him. And the male does not protect the female. It suppresses it. In itself, in society, in the world. And so the feminine, the giving, the giving of oneself, love, the eternal wisdom of meaning, disappears more and more from the world. It is completely sucked out in the self-interest of the male, which has banished the female from itself so as never to be exploited. So as never to have to give to others. For he who is in the struggle for survival keeps all resources with him, he sucks out everything he can.
Now the resting, the loving, the giving, the knowing, is soon consumed in this world. The fallacy, the delusion, slowly comes to light. It was the feminine, in its nurturing, giving birth, that made everything possible in the first place. And despite all the denial and self-important self-deception, it turns out, no longer deniable, that it was the only nourishment. Nothing can exist without the nourishing breast of the mother. The male egoistic insatiable diabolical infant can only suck until there is nothing left. He cannot create anything new. When he has taken everything, then he will perish….
And all he had in his life was lonely cold fear. Fear of succumbing to another fearful one. – And then death comes. And he has served nothing and no one. Has not shared in the eternal knowledge of love and meaning….
And this death of the feminine affects women as much as men… There is no difference.
