"Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes." ~The Kybalion

Most people have never heard about the idea of the divine masculine and most who have heard about the concept essentially have no idea what divine masculine is. Many people can conceptualize the idea of toxic masculinity as opposed to divine masculinity and most are against its perversions, but most simply do not know what direction to take toward being divinity or ascension. I want to simplify, as much as possible, the concept of the divine masculine as opposed to being toxic.

In order to conceptualize divine masculinity I began with defining the energy of masculinity and femininity in contrast. I utilized the Philosophy of The Duality of Polarity to reveal the mutual oppositional energies of the both the feminine and masculine. Using the primal energies to conceptualize the feminine and masculine assists slicing away the superfluous and societal attachments to reveal the fundamentals. With this Occam's Razor (4 looks like a knife) approach feminine and masculine divinity become clear and unhindered by national, traditional, and even sexual constructs.

I utilized The Geometry of Energy to illustrate the divine feminine and the divine masculine. The four dimensions of geometry applied to measuring objects are highly efficient at aiding comprehension of the physical world. The four dimensions of geometry applied to measuring energies are highly efficient at aiding comprehension of the internal, spiritual and psychological world. Points and lines are masculine, and planes and solids are feminine.

The energy of the divine feminine is both receptive and creative.

The energy of the divine masculine is both reflective and projective.

The potential for these each of these energies to be displayed in one or the other, male or female, is clear, but the tendency of the archetypal energies lean in the above manner. There is creativity in masculinity just as there is reflectivity in femininity. The idea of inner feminine in man and inner masculine in woman is commonly understood as the anima and animus; essentially defined as inner nature containing elements of mutually dependent opposites. The Yin Yang illustrates this with the circles in the swirls.

"The Dao is also the way in the following sense - nothing exists except as a relation with other similarly postulated ideas. Nothing can be known in itself, but only as one of the participants in a series of events." ~A. Crowley

The Dao is made up of feminine and masculine energies, each codependent, mutually arising within the other, and each potentiating the each other. The story of one without the other is fruitless and lacking. The same goes for the story of individuals seeking self-development and divinity as opposed to basic modality. A combination and contrast of energies is essentially required for comprehension and potentiation.

In order to better understand both genders of divinity it is helpful to contrast the feminine and masculine. The divine feminine, which may be as rare a character in the world as the divine masculine, is at least more well understood. The feminine energy is caring in an all-encompassing manner being capable total receptivity to all and adopting all energy. The divine feminine embraces everything in a motherly circle and is capable of creating a whole other being of solidity onto itself, with the obvious masculine potentiation combination of course. The divine feminine demonstrates the caring receptivity inclusion in a circle, and the creativity of generating a whole other being.

The divine masculine embodies reflective and projective energies. Instead of being receptive to energy the divine masculine reflects it. Instead of being creative of volume onto itself the divine masculine is projective of will. The divine masculine reflects energy like a shield or a mirror. And the divine masculine projects energy like a sword or like the singular focus of task at hand.

The divine masculine idea is of a peaceful warrior. This archetype has led to the masculine perversions where warriors are turned into institutionalized soldiers, where the righteousness of self-defense are obscured by war-minded perversions and abusive behavior. The perversions of the mission oriented masculine will is so commonly accepted as normal that women seeking equality among men will do so via military institutions of perverted masculinity. Consider the commonly accepted steering and stupefying in this frequently quoted comparison of love and war 'all is fair in love and war.'
