feeling very feminine

Aug. 11 poses

Herm of Aphroditus at the Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.

I know the more I embody my Androgyny self / as though internally balance act of my masculine/feminine being.

I've always been drawn to the symbolism of; Aphroditus (Greek: Ἀφρόδιτος Aphroditos) was a male Aphrodite originating from Amathus on the island of Cyprus and celebrated in Athens in a transvestite rite.
being "funny, I thought if I was a straight man,I'd want to "bone me"..lol

Transending the "Ego"

I think surrendering to "Reality", is first step for myself in order to grow personally, I thought of the movie "Horse Whisperer",the scene  near the end where the horse allows his ego to fall away,thus allowing Gracie to stand upon himself, thus "surrending", Also well shown in Simone Weil's " Gravity and Grace",,how a Void must be created,in order to allow - "Nature/God to enter one's being.

 I believe for myself "Surrendering" to accept my "Androgyny" is big part of self-actualizing for myself,

     I also believe for most Androgynys-transsexuals- cross-gender, whatever it's called, I tire of Words and their symbolism. and                                                           there are
     
      lots of Words, as Ruth Benedicts states,  just as there are many answers;

               “The trouble with life isn't that there is no answer, it's that there are so many answers.”                                                            
                                                                                                                                   ― Ruth Benedict

I like this statement of her's the best;


“The purpose of anthropology is to make the world safe for human differences.”
Ruth Benedict
