Our higher natures see no conflict between a woman being successful, independent, well-to-do and able to maintain her distinct feminine grace. Our higher natures know that a man can be at once sensitive, caring and considerate at the same time he maintains a distinct masculine presence — unlike so many bumbling husbands and fathers on TV sitcoms these days.
So, men, this St. Valentine’s Day, woo your woman, court her, sweep her off her feet. Ladies, revel in our adoration and attention.
When both sexes follow their true natures, the sparks fly.
