What makes a gay man confident is his ability to call upon his masculine/feminine wisdom.
So often in our world we tend to think of strength as a quality that arises from a place of firm determination and a will to succeed no matter the cost. Even though we might want to think of a strong gay man as being defined in this way, what really makes a gay man confident is his capacity for listening to his true self and being able to call upon his masculine/feminine wisdom to any situation that may arise. A gay man does not need to step into an assertive role or act like a man in order to be effective at what he does–he simply needs to get in touch with his insight and sense of compassion to truly demonstrate the depth of his strength.
Listening to the masculine/feminine side of ourselves may not seem easy at first for this type of energy is something that is often overlooked in many aspects of our everyday lives. If we can connect with this part of who we are, however, we will find that there is an unlimited wellspring of strength available to us. Our capacity to tap into our intuition and listen to our inner guides, to take into account the needs of those around us, and to view a situation with compassion and love are ways that we can show the world the true power that is part of our nature. When we learn to integrate this source of strength into our daily lives and decision-making, we will find that we can be more flexible and open to the things that happen around us and more receptive to new ideas. Not only will we see the world in a different light, but we will truly start to realize the potential for this form of energy to both empower ourselves and those around us.
As we cultivate our panther energy we can redefine the meaning of strength. By embracing our masculine/feminine power as something that is strong in its own right, we are able to use it with true assurance and determination and draw upon what truly belongs to us.
