Holistic Feminine Intelligence
Feminine Philosophy and Masculine Philosophy are Not the same, they are different! Like the Earth and Sun are different, but life needs both!
...This is going beyond the Reaction to oppression which Feminism does — To stand against oppression and injustice is only part of it, but also how we build the future — to continue Reacting against, or to Balance Polarities!
...don't waste the different perspectives!!
Spiritual people talk of feminine energy and masculine energy, but like physical matter, they are both created. ...The Root, is 'Intelligent Thought', but this must come in two Genders.
While it may seem that focused Masculine Intelligence builds our physical world, and many orthodox people may assume this, the Reality is BOTH Genders of Thought necessarily together Create the Universe! First a Universe of Abstract Motion is created, then physical motion with its consequent Time and Space. The Root however, is 'Divine Thought' of both Genders. This is 'The Spirit'
Sacred Feminine : Sacred Masculine.
Because masculine philosophy is already so well established in Culture, Religion and Science, our key to comprehending the workings of our existence, is by focusing on the Holistic Feminine Intelligence — how all things, all issues are connected. It is the phenomenon of Karma, the root of dowsing, the art of perception, the wisdom of Nature. ...And in the context of creating Peaceful development of societies, it is vital — literally!
We have to move away to see things in perspective — before we can return to help with clearer sight. ...For example: to begin to recognise the difference that the feminine view has to the masculine; in science, in religion and in political striving — then we grow spiritually and are able to see what others are oblivious to.
As a third-gender person myself, I can say with certainty that the feminine in me, is different to the masculine in me — they are NOT the same. So it is wrong to say they are 'Equal'. Much of the world is now chasing Gender Equality as a reaction to former oppression, but this is only setting up future problems in our society, especially in raising our children who are the next generation. Rather we should be focused on Gender Balance. ...A subtle difference maybe, but of enormous implication.
DesignThere is Male body and Female body,
There is Feminine energy and Masculine energy,
There is Feminine intelligence and Masculine intelligence.
But SPIRIT contains Both! ...So think of Spirit like the 'Design'.
When we design the position of a door in a house, on the Plan we show the path the door swings between its open and closed positions. This is like how Spirit contains both masculine and feminine in its design.
Consider also, a door's position is moveable depending upon needs, open or closed. So too our gender characteristics can be variable depending upon circumstances! But our gender defaults are configured as they are.
People in the Religion, or Religion in the People ?
People who follow a Religion accepting its rules, thereby make themselves separate from other people (believers and non-believers). They restrict their perceptions of what is beyond. In making Religion the framework they live their lives by, they are effectively 'In the Religion'. This is the same control dynamics as being an employee within a company. — It may suit a company (?), but it does not suit the Spiritual.
Contrasting with this, are those other people who are deeply aware of Nature and Spirit, and then on top of this find Religious Wisdom as a profound Guide. Like this they are aware of both: personal experiences with Nature and Spirit, plus Spiritual Wisdom they learned as a meaningful Guide. The Religion is therefore in them, not the other way around! There is no hard border between them and other people who also know Nature and Spirit! It also represents the homestead business model.
In the unconventional physics that I have been connected with, the primary polarity is between 'Space and Movement', yet both are created, and both are forms of motion! Simplified; this is about the way Linear and Rotary motions are combined. It is a Gender like characteristic, where two opposites Mesh together to create something that previously did not exist, which then goes on to 'Mesh' with other similar creations to create yet further new entities. Such can be shown how the Atom is created from gendered forms of abstract Motion, and which itself was from Divine Thought. This principle of Gender Polarities, meshing (or mating) together to create new is the most fundamental principle of our Universe.
So whether we are in religion, or religion is in us, is therefore the defining feature! These two cannot be compatible, like inside-out and right-way-out. Religious wisdom alongside experience of Nature and Spirit is also a Gender characteristic; masculine meshing with feminine. Where this happens in practise a spiritual society can form. One such example I have personally witnessed is described on the page Islam of the North Another example was the pre-industrial northern people whose life experience was the elements of Nature, plus the mythological Sagas – which again makes 'religion' just part of a spiritual gender pair. But it cannot work the other way round, as we end up with just male religion with its male god and no spirituality. ...Which is what has happened in so much religion.
Liberalism has Failed...
Liberté, égalité, fraternité are all Single Poles!
Liberty without Responsibility, is a problem
Equality without Diversity, is also a problem
Fraternity with Inclusion, is yet another problem.
Everything whole manifested, has polarities... Sacred Feminine : Sacred Masculine.
In a society that teaches Gender Equality... Gender Difference is not Valued!
The Genders are Polarities of Existence, without Both there is Neither.
The Damage Caused by ChristianityTheir belief in a 'Male God' has caused a lot a damage, much more than their belief in a Trinity!
As the saying goes; "Leaving things out is as big a distortion as putting things in". So by believing God is male, it omits the Feminine half of The-God making such belivers unbalanced, and therefore susceptible to doing all the bad that has happened. On the surface, Judaism has the same male God beliefs, but their esoteric wise ones knew better as they greatly valued Gender Balance. Not so with Christianity though. With Islam, it was the male dominated middle-eastern culture that has brought it down, not the message itself which is remarkably gender-balanced.
This disease has infected our language which is subliminally very masculine. When we speak of Philosophy or Logic, it is the masculine variant that is assumed. Scant regard is paid the Feminine. Even those who consider themselves Humanist having gone past religious notions, still have default attitudes set by Christianity with their Language and male God image.
Heathen and Pagan Spiritual Practise does not suffer from this problem, as the closeness to Nature helps prevent it. Though we must be careful not to confuse Spirit Forces with 'The Source'.
Esoteric ReligionA Spiritual Insight is like a Satellite image, while Scientific Research is like a Surveyor on the ground - Esoteric Religion attempts to put the two together as we are conversant with both. A fatal flaw however, is in trying to make stuff fit with pre-existing perceptions; either religion creed or science theory. This has lead many gifted people to wrong conclusions!
We must acknowledge that BOTH established religions and established science have their fundamental misconceptions... The Reason: failing to recognise that feminine intelligence is different to masculine intelligence: Not about men verses women, as all people necessarily have both masculine and feminine within them - though defaulting differently.
We can perceive the world from a framework of Space, at one moment in Time — or vice versa: a framework of Time, at one location in Space!
...If MOTION is the first manifestation of 'Thought', then it can be collated these two ways! However, be careful to realize that Physical Motion is only one of two children of Abstract Motion - the other is 'Mental Change', such as Learning, or Leading, or Loving. It can be shown, that this is the 'Gender' principle. In my book Beyond Physics, I discuss Gender in depth, referring to it as Conjugate-Polarities. download free PDF.
The practical effect of this gender difference, is where the focused masculine logic can only see meaningless random disorder, the holistic feminine intelligence may see multiple connections and their expected consequences! The masculine intelligence can see fractal patterns in one subject, the feminine intelligence can see connecting patterns between totally different subjects. ...But to repeat; all people necessarily have both masculine and feminine within them - though defaulting differently.
The build-up of the current human civilization has generally depreciated the feminine throughout its history. Where this 'depreciation' was worse, the society suffered more: poverty, war, lack of freedom, lack of creativity, lack of spirituality.
So Gender Balanced Philosophy is not just about the accuracy of esoteric visionaries, it is also about how 'civilized' society is in general! ...Monotheistic religions have a lot to answer for!
