Feminine Inspiration

Feminine inspiration, which everyone experiences, regards what you have created as sacred. You have created Buddhism, Christianity, Sufism–it is your production. Since it is fully yours, respect it, work with it. These teachings did not come from somewhere else; your own openness gave birth to them. Moreover, you gave birth to pleasure and pain. You built Paris, London, New York City. You produced the president of the United States. These things are the product of feminine inspiration.

From “Femininity,” in Selected Writings, The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa, Volume  Six, page 564.
