Some men may feel threatened by the increasing space taken by women in the business and political world. They should not and let me tell you why.

Most problems we currently face as modern nations are linked to the fact that we have lost our connection with rhythms and cycles. It is not that these rhythms and cycles have disappeared; in fact they are the only steady and predictable things in our world today.

What went wrong is that we have been ignoring them. So instead of working with them, they are imposed on us and we are not prepared. Working with them would mean accepting and respecting these cycles, preparing for the downside when we are in the upside.

Women have an extraordinary ability to stay in tune with the concept of cycle. The very first one is of course the body monthly adjustment to procreate or not, that they feel each month.

As annoying as periods may be, they act as a reminder that we belong to something much bigger than us, over which we have no control. The medical world has tried to suppress that monthly reminder by providing a pill that would stop all periods for six months. But besides the physical side effects of taking such a pill, the very role of guardian and base of all things that women should have is affected.

The world in which we live in has lost all respect for seasons, for cycles of the human kind. As a result, kids have become mini adults, weekly breaks from all activity to reconnect with oneself and the divine are not respected either. Divine here should not be taken in a religious way. Divine represents what is beyond us, what is bigger than us, so it could easily represent your religious belief of a super power, and it should also speak to non believers. What is beyond us is a fact, not a belief. Moon cycle, earth rotation, blood renewal cycle, these are facts.

We would all gain greatly by reconnecting with these cycles that govern our lives whether we like it or not.

Women have the ability to do that: they have this long-term view, this capacity to anticipate and see something coming way before material signs show.

The more we will trust women’s intuition the better the world will be.

Women are not power seekers; they have a goal that goes beyond immediate gratifications. And most importantly they have ethics: working for the greater good is meaningful to them.

In their daily life, they all must have a deep understanding of the whole picture to juggle with work, household, kids, groceries and so forth. The wide spectrum of what they cover would benefit greatly to the world.

That combined with the sharpness, pragmatism and efficiency men are capable of can do miracles.

Chinese have understood that long ago: balance comes from the right combination of Yin (ultimate feminine) and Yang (ultimate masculine).

This is why you should get a closer look at your couple. Your couple is, at the family cellular level, the representation of this yin yang balance in action.

So it is about time we all go beyond the prejudiced ideas we have on the other gender, and we start focusing on each gender’s assets.

Women are plagued with their insecurity passed on from generations and generations. Few of them have a true self-confidence that would allow them to blossom and express their potential.

I also believe that this insecurity is the base of many relationship issues. This sort of complex triggers a game score keeping over the competition of who does what, as if this score game was giving any value to what women do on a daily basis.

I will offer some ideas to get rid of this insecurity in another post. For now I want to raise your awareness on the amazing skills women have and the world could benefit from.

Gentlemen, don’t feel threatened. What women can bring into the business world is something you don’t have; so your best interest is to add their skills to your own arsenal.

Stand up Ladies! You are amazing!
