This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

NOTICE:
This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Masculine and feminine

We can speak of the relationship between the jnanic and bhaktic ways by saying the jnana is masculine and bhakti feminine. This should not be interpreted in such a way as to degrade those of a bhaktic nature any more than it is degrading to women to be feminine. What this classification does is describe characteristic and relations. Moreover, we should remind the read that Christ Himself spoke of the faithful collectively as the “bride” and he the groom. Likewise, it has been commonly observed in the writings of the saints that there is a markedly feminine tone in them. This is only surprising if one forgets that Christianity is a predominantly bhaktic way.
