Gentle is often associated with femininity, or weakness, thus when wanting something one needs to be strong/aggressive/active/persistent. When I think of the word gentle I think of soothing, soft spoken voice, using ones hands to pet. However one thing I have learned through Desteni is that if we want results in reaching people, animals one needs to be gentle which stands in a contradiction with what is expected when one needs to achieve something by being aggressive/powering. I have learned that being gentle is self empowering which in terms is “powering”.
Some ways to sound out the word gentleness:
Redefinition: Gentle/ness: Expression/approach/touch that is in consideration of others/self which comes through being open and stable within oneself.
