What is the Sacred Masculine?

  ‘What is the Sacred Masculine?’ She asked. ‘Well,’ he replied: ‘He is the phoenix risen from the flames, there may be ash on his beard and the smell of smoke in his hair And He will feel like the sunrise in a peachy, orange sky after the long dark night. He is the one that was wounded to the core and now stands straight and strong again. He is the one that was broken and has dressed his own wounds from the battles [...]
