Why am I manifesting discord between those in my environment?
Because you have an inner conflict between two opposite poles: freedom versus responsibility.
What is meant by calling someone a “flake”? My boss insulted me with this term recently.
It refers to someone who is deficient in the feminine pole of spiritual warriorship.
A Note from The Seer:
“A master is also a spiritual warrior because his or her fight is against illusion”.
A spiritual warrior expresses two types of courage in life:
1. The feminine pole of courage is endurance — this could take the form of persevering through discomfort to fulfill one’s responsibility.
2. The masculine pole of courage is the way in which one responds to an acute challenge. The spiritual warrior turns hardship into insight, thus gaining self-empowerment through overcoming.
In your case, it is the feminine pole of spiritual warriorship that isn’t developed nor appreciated.
If only one pole of two opposites is expressed, it drains rather than builds inner strength.
