Flow Like the Ocean
This comes from David Deida, who wrote an amazing book called The Way of the Superior Man.
Basically he compares feminine essence – which is pure energy, pure love – to the ocean. Feminine energy just flows. It moves in many directions at once. Masculine energy – which is purpose and direction – builds dams, and bridges, and boats. Masculine energy, certain in its direction, allows the feminine to relax, surrender, and just flow.
He says that a happy woman is like the ocean. Her energy is deep, immense, and always changing. She can be calm and serene, but also capable of being wild and destructive. She’s the source of life, but also unpredictable by nature. And like the ocean, she’s always alive, expressive, and beautiful.
But what do most men do? They try to control and contain that flow of energy that is wild, passionate, and unpredictable. They want to analyze, inhibit, and judge. They want to put walls around you and turn this vast ocean into a swimming pool.
Since I know that great sex and great relationships come from deep trust, I’m assured in how I relate to a woman’s energy. My presence is so strong, so stable that I just want to let you be the ocean.
Be deep like the ocean.
Be powerful like the ocean.
Be wild like the ocean.
Unrestrained, unconfined, and uninhibited.
Trust my ability to lead you in the right direction, and I will trust you to just flow like the ocean.
