You may even begin to envision the feminine as the acceptance of all that is natural, and a rejection of all that is unnatural. It is very akin to “accept the new, deny the old,” but the tone of it is different . . . literally. Mirari
Mari Perron’s experience is that it is Mary of Nazareth who is speaking to her in Mirari. Mary’s emphasis on the feminine is easily explained, because she is coming from being a woman. The word about “natural” suggests to me that the female is more likely to be close to nature in her assessments. After all, it is she who births the next generation. And that is about as close to nature as one can get.
The tone of the feminine IS different—warmer, more all-embracing, sometimes more loving even. Our small bit of testosterone is not enough to provoke aggression, at least not usually.
Turning to the feminine in experiencing God is a radical idea. But we all know intuitively that He/She is both genders. Our patriarchal society has limited our viewpoint.
Ask what the feminine in God can lead us to discover. After all, ask to see God’s loving, present in our world in a new way.
