right. that’s very much in line with a book I recently read by Erich Fromm.

He talks about the different natures of love.
Fatherly love and motherly love were in there.

Motherly love being unconditional, all encompassing, loving purely because the child is her child.

Fatherly love being the one who approves and disapproves. The one who gives love when he feels like it’s due, which is obviously based on pretty subjective factors.
So the love is choosy, it’s active in its decision of whether to be given or whether to be withheld.
Rewards system.

So in this case, to me, the motherly aspect sounds way more attractive. Like way ‘better’
But why is that.. Because isn’t duality just kinda illusory?
So why does that seem better to me?
I just can’t see what would be ‘good’ about the fatherly aspect of love.

Even you just said it there. The masculine one is a challenger of growth.
That does not sound good.

I think we’re probably quite similar in that we are both more attracted to a motherly idea of love. But that just can’t be healthy. Surely you gotta mix the two.
Surely I gotta realise what is good about a love that is based on good and bad choices.. on right or wrong.

Is it duality versus polarity consciousness type vibe?
Is that like the ultimate manifestation of yin/yang lol??
