The Gifts of Masculine and Feminine Loving

I don’t agree with Deida 100%, but his teachings are sooo helpful, simple and poetic. This part also alludes to Deida’s three stages of intimate relationship: Dependance, 50/50, and Intimate Communion.

The Gifts of Masculine and Feminine Loving  from “Intimate Communion: Awakening Your Sexual Essence” by David Deida

“Through practice, a man grows stage by stage into the fullness of free consciousness, serving his woman with the Masculine force of love. When she is lost in her mood or feeling abandoned, he calls her present with humour and passion, and he opens her heart with his pervading and uncompromising love.

Through practice, a woman grows stage by stage into the fullness of the dancing energy of love, serving her man with the Feminine force of love. When he is trapped in his mind of feeling burdened by life, she enchants his heart and enlivens his spirit with her powerful healing energy and radiance of love.

Through the three stages of intimate relationship, man and woman serve each other wit their unique forms of Masculine and Feminine energy. In a Dependence Relationship, the first-stage man gives Masculine energy to his woman in the form of money, sweet affection and security. The first-stage woman gives Feminine energy to her man in the form of sex, admiration and nurturing care.

In a 50/50 Relationship, the second-stage man gives Masculine energy to his woman in the form of insight and self-discipline. The second-stage woman gives Feminine energy to her man in the form of intuition and healing.

In the practice of Intimate Communion, the third-stage man gives Masculine energy to his woman in the form of fearless persistence in truth. The third-stage woman gives Feminine energy to her man in the form of ever-radiant, heart-opening love.

By growing through the stages of intimacy, both men and women eventually realize they cannot win: The Masculine never acquires absolute freedom and the Feminine never receives absolute love. Rather, through their unique gifts, men and women serve one another to grow beyond their illusions of security, need and self-identity. They serve to magnify one another’s ability to let go, stop seeking and breathe freely as love and as freedom, in this present moment.

Finally, in the practice of Intimate Communion, we understand that there is no need to win anything or anyone. Our bellies soften and our hearts relax. Unarmored, unstriving, feeling into the living, naked radiance of this present moment, we are that which is always being given. We are the mysterious force of free love, spontaneously arising as man and woman, recognizing itself, touching itself and dissolving in union with itself in the short drama of our lives.”
