Its all about candles and flowers and sitting quietly thinking about your own quiet self. I have just started my latest subject at CCTC and am struggling with it.
Its Contempory Spiritualities of Transformations, and I was looking forward to it. I don't want to insult anyone, particularly the lecturer, but I will struggle to maintain myself through this subject. Its not a boring subject, its just soooo feminine.
I wonder what a masculine spirituality would look like? I would imagine something more confronting and less passive. Not that being feminine is a passive thing but you may catch my drift. Most men can't stop and think for hours unless it is something active that has forced reflection.
For example I may have a conversation with my dad and that would cause me to think about how I relate to him and his role within my ideas and understandings of God. But I would struggle to sit quietly out of the blue and think about the links between God and fatherhood.
I will continue to struggle through it. but I will be looking for masculine images on the way.
