Where masculine creativity tends to move always forward, feminine creativity tends to turn round on itself, not circularly so much as spirally. It is constantly changing.
Finding out about being instead of doing is the sacred task of the feminine.
Being requires accepting oneself , staying within oneself.
A myth is a large image that gives meaning to the facts of ordinary life. Without such images, experience is chaos.
If a woman has not been initiated into a feminine mythology by her mother or grandmother, she has to develop her own relationship to her inner feminine.
