The challenge of desire

Dear women,

I am reading a lovely book by Mark Epstein called Opening to Desire. After sending my previous mail, I read the following reference to the words of Jessica Benjamin. "The challenge for women, she decided, is how to move from being just an object of desire to becoming a subject: She who desires."

For the balance between masculine and feminine to be restored, it is essential that the feminine learns to be she who desires. In the inner marriage of masculine and feminine, the masculine is to follow the desire of the feminine. He takes his direction from her - not the other way around. How much are you letting yourself be the subject who desires?
