Oneness is The Foundation of Equality: The Spirit is Neither Male nor Female

by Michael Corthell Studies have  shown  there is much less of a difference in male/female behavior than you might think. A comparison of several of these studies has also shown, that none of these gender stereotypes we experience has any basis in fact. Also, other research  in neuroscience illustrates that there is no difference between the female brain and the male brain at birth . It can therefore be rightly assumed that the family dynamic, plus societal influences, mold gender behaviors. When we think of ourselves strictly in human, gender-based terms, we are not really seeing the true nature of ourselves.

by Michael Corthell While the gift of sex and procreation is a very important part of this earthly life, many religious teachings including those of Jesus say that neither of these will play a role in the afterlife (or the 'beforelife') because our souls and our spirits, which are the essence of who we really are as created beings have no gender. Our biological packaging is for procreation and gives most of us either a male or female gender assignment at birth, but it is increasingly recognized in the society today that not all of us fit neatly into gender assigned categories, either physiologically or psychologically. The truth is, that human beings are a combination of masculine and feminine energies (yin-yang balance).

Love in the Balance

A man of quality is never threatened by a woman of equality. ― Jill Briscoe Do you like chess? I like chess, although I have never played chess. I like it for this reason― sort of a reminder: when the game is over, the King and the pawn go back in the same box. “The Pledge of Allegiance says 'liberty and justice for all'. Which part of 'all' don't you understand?” ― Pat Schroeder
