Boys Vs. Girls


There’s a slight competition in my household between the girls and the boys.  It seems as this is only natural and we do our best to honor and respect each one.  I think it’s ok until a certain point because after all, my daughter will venture through the “experience” of motherhood.

Personally, I think the world has gone crazy and this observation among my children got me thinking about girls and boys in general.

I think as Moms we spend a lot of our time thinking about this in one way or another, especially in trying to raise our children.  And I think it’s fair to say that men and women generally have very different tendencies, different priorities, perceptions, ways of thinking, etc.

I think we try to understand each other… A LOT, so that our male-female relationships will be more successful. But, in my opinion our understanding seems to be very lacking.

It seems to me that, in modern society, the nature of how male and female is portrayed and seen is exactly the opposite of what it really is.

And, if we accept that portrayal, no wonder we’re confused!

There’s a very ancient understanding of the way in which everything in our world comes into being and functions.

For simplicity’s sake we can call them Heaven and Earth, or spiritual and material, or wave and particle forces.  But, EVERYTHING is composed of these two forces; and the ratio of the two and how they interact in a particular thing determine the nature of that thing. Male or Female; Boy or Girl.

I’m not sure understanding men and women in relation to these fundamental energies is as simple.

Maybe somewhere along the way, our “expectations” of males and females got switched … and now we can’t understand why our male-female relationships are so difficult and confusing?

A long time ago, it was much easier to see the nature of male and female — because males were super-masculine and females were super-feminine. Men and women even referred to each other as “my other half.”

Because by our very nature we are constantly seeking balance.

All through history, traditional societies seem to have understood the true nature of male and female.

And, by “nature” I mean the inherent characteristics of male and female; the most basic, fundamental tendencies of each. But, it seems to me, is that we have confused our basic male and female natures with our balancing mechanisms.

According to certain Mayan Elders, in the World of The Fifth Sun (said to begin on December 22, 2012), human consciousness will somehow be transformed — from our long-held duality consciousness, into some kind of unity consciousness.

I greatly doubt that we will awaken on December 22 with such a dramatic change in our lives. If we do, I’m all for it. But, in case we don’t, I think it would be helpful for us to understand the true nature of male and female.

Live and Learn. We all Do.

Thanks for Reading. Please pass this on to someone who means something to you.
