There are male and female aspects within creation that are so interspersed, so uniform throughout, that it almost defies logic, and yet it is perfectly logical when fully realized in its potential. It is the order within chaos, the law and codes put into place within everything, great and small, so that you cannot look anywhere and not see it. There is a third aspect, besides male and female and from which they came, and that is a unified whole containing both - the male-female combination (an androgyne of sorts)... this is the original Spirit Energy that pervades and permeates all of Creation. This all-encompassing original source Energy containing both aspects and is in perfect harmony. This is the beginnings of what sacred geometry is about.
Vesica Pisces - the splitting apart is called mitosis, i.e. cell division, also, Sphere=ovum and Oval opening of the penis
The reason we have male-female split apart is a resulting disconnection when the "Eve" was removed from the "Adam" (male aspect, which was originally androgynous - containing BOTH... after all, you cannot remove the female aspect OUT of the "Adam" unless it was in him in the first place). Many people who are from matriarchal (female-lead) societies may have issues with the original "Adam" being called a male (predominantly found within patriarchal (male-lead) societies) when "he" had both, so why not called the androgyne a "she" instead? Are they not interchangeable? Yes, and no.... we'll cover more on that later. Realize the "Adam" and the "Eve" are archetypes. This is but the introduction to the great play of life, or the great game of life, depending on how you look at it. It is the same story told over and over in the universe from the tiniest atom, to the solar system, to the astrological signs in the heavens, to all world religions, the plant kingdom, and the animal kingdom, etc. A Biblical literalist cannot explain how or why, when the "Eve" was taken out of the "Adam" it also affected ALL LIFE ON EARTH as well... did God also remove the "rib" ("chamber" in the Hebrew - the feminine reproductive aspect of creation, the womb) from every animal at the same time? We have male and female lions today, with their inherent differences, as well as male and female parts of the plants, many of them being androgynes. Even the original "Adam" was an androgyne... the perfect being created in God's image, having both parts in union within "him."
You will find BOTH male and female aspects in the macrocosm as well as the microcosm... in ALL things you will find both aspects; although, you will find (as in people) that one will rule over the other, being the majority in either female or male aspects so that you can call it "female" or "male." So as the microcosm contains both, you will also find the main idea is this:
microcosm = female (hidden, underlying, quiet or invisible processes)
macrocosm = male (obvious, overlying, loud or visible processes)
The smallest parts in the universe include atoms. An atom consists of a nucleus, which is made up of protons, neutrons, and the outer electron shell - the electron(s). This microcosm reality is but the type and order established at the base level which the macrocosm copies. This is the order contained naturally within the universe. The pattern from which everything is derived. The intelligence and order behind what some would consider chaos.
Note that the protons (the positively charged parts) are male, the electrons (negatively charged parts) orbiting the nucleus are female, and the neutrons (male-female androgynes) are contained within the nucleus. Because of this, we have a center which is predominately male, consisting of the protons AND the male aspects (which includes the female aspects) of the neutrons. But it is the electrons which provide the movement and change from one form into another. Females, as most males know, are all about change. The old adage is that if a woman feels one way now, just wait 5 minutes and she'll completely change her mind! Interestingly enough, Dr. Bruce Cornet (a geologist, palynologist, paleobotanist, and biologist, not to mention a very dear person to my heart) recently asked me, "If you could sum up what Chemistry is in one sentence what would you call it?" I thought for a minute and was clueless, so I asked him, "What?" His answer was,
"Chemistry is the movement of electrons."
Chemistry, then, is a feminine process. Interestingly enough, as men are known for status, strength, and ego, women are known for sharing and bonding between people (typically, other females). The interaction of electrons around atoms can result in two or more atoms joining together, a process known as what?..... BONDING. Different females bond differently, depending. If atoms of two or more different elements bond, the resulting substance is a COMPOUND. Most minerals are compounds, although gold, silver, and several others are exceptions. There are several types of bonding, IONIC BONDING, COVALENT BONDING, METALLIC AND VAN DER WAALS BONDING.
Ionic bonding is the transference of electrons (one lost by one atom, and one gained by the other atom) between atoms, producing one fewer electron (negative charge) than it has protons (positive charge) so that it becomes an electrically charged particle called an ION. Ionic bonds form because of the attractive force between the positively charged ion and a negatively charged ion. This is giving (a giver and a receiver forms a new bond, but with different charges/status).
Covalent bonding forms between atoms when their electron shells overlap and electrons are shared. For example, atoms of the same element, such as oxygen in oxygen gas, cannot bond by transferring electrons from one atom to another, so adjacent atoms share electrons by overlapping their electron shells. This is connection (a combining of both parties forms this type of bond, like between best friends).
Metallic bonding results from an extreme type of electron sharing. Electrons of the outmost electron shell of metals such as gold, silver, and copper are readily lost and move about from one atom to another (extreme flexibility/movement of the feminine aspect). This electron mobility accounts for metals' metallic luster (appearance in reflected light - and many women love flashy metal jewelry), their good electrical and thermal conductivity, and their malleability. Only a few minerals possess metallic bonds, but those that do are very useful; copper, for example, is used for electrical wiring because of its high electrical conductivity. Electrical aspects are male (more on that below) so the movement of the feminine aspect actually creates a male conduit of energy due to networking (like a strong business woman who is resourceful and sharp and perfectly at ease in a male dominated society). This is the strongest form of bonding.
Van der Waals bonding or residual bonding between some electrically neutral (androgenous) atoms and molecules have no electrons available for ionic, covalent, or metallic bonding. They nevertheless have a weak attractive force between them when in proximity. For example, carbon atoms in the mineral graphite covalently bond to form sheets, but the sheets are weakly held together by van der Waals bonds. This type of bonding in graphite makes it useful for pencil leads; when a pencil is moved across a piece of paper, small pieces of graphite flake off along the planes held together by van der Waals bonds and adhere to the paper. This is the weakest form of bonding.
Minerals are made up of atoms bonded together. By definition minerals are crystalline solids in which the constituent atoms are arranged in a regular, three-dimensional framework (more shapes in sacred geometry - cubic, dodecahedron, octahedrons, etc. - the stuff in which our world was formed/created). Not all rigid substances are crystalline solids; natural and manufactured glass both lack the ordered arrangement of atoms and are said to be amorphous, meaning without form (much like "the earth was without form, and void," in the beginning of creation). It took time (more on time later) for the formless to take shape and grow and form.
Electricity = Female (paradox: some say this is male)
Magnetics = Male (paradox: some say this is female)
Electromagnetics = Male-Female
(electromagnetics = light - an electric field with a magnetic field moving 90 degrees to this wave, rotating/spiraling as it moves)
Within the microcosm there are forces and energies at work continually. Positive and negative charges (as in ions, etc.) constitute electrical charges (electrons are female) which affect magnetics (positive/negative poles - an unseen force within distinct poles). Electromagnetics are a powerful force together, and are, ultimately, and intimately interrelated.
The macrocosm mimics the microcosm, or vice versa. Where we have electrons (female) orbiting a nucleus (predominately male (protons) but also having some feminine (male-female neutrons) aspects) in the microcosm, we have planets (female) orbiting a central sun (nucleus - predominately male, but with some lesser female aspects).
SUN: Nucleus (protons (male) & neutrons (male/female))
PLANETS: Electrons (planets/moons/satellites (female))
Sun = Father/Son/Soul/Fire (thought - predominately male, e.g. the sun god "Ra")
Earth = Mother/Body/Change/Rebirth (physical - female)

Direct quote, p.90, 92: "Metatron's Cube contains within it the five Platonic solids... these include the
cube or the hexahedron, which has 6 square faces, 8 corners, and 12 edges;
the tetrahedron, which has 4 triangular faces, 4 corners, and 6 edges;
the octahedron, which has 8 triangular faces, 6 corners, and 12 edges;
the dodecahedron, which has 12 pentagonal faces, 20 corners, and 30 edges;
and the icosahedron, which has 20 triangular faces, 12 corners, and 30 edges.
The criteria for Platonic solids are that all their edges be equal, that there only be one surface and one angle, and that the points all fit on the surface of a sphere. There are only five shapes known that fit these criteria. The Platonic solids were named after Plato even though Pythagoras used them 200 years earlier; he called them the perfect solids..........
These five figures are of enormous importance. they are the components of the energy fields around our bodies. It is a little-known fact that the fie Platonic solids come out of Metratron's Cube. Most of the authors of books on sacred geometry don't seem to understand or realize this fact........
The ancient schools viewed the elements of fire, earth, air, water, and ether as having protean shape. the shapes of the elements corresponded to the Platonic solids as follows: the tetrahedron is fire, the cube is earth, the octahedron is air, the ocosahedron is water, and the dodecahedron is ether or prana. The sphere is the voidness from which all came. So from these six shapes all things can be created.
Atoms, the particles from which matter is formed, are simply spheres with electrons moving around their outer core at nine-tenths the speed of light. This rotation forms an electron cloud, which mimics a sphere. In crystal the different-sized atoms (spheres ) align in a straight edge, a triangle, a tetrahedron, a cube, an octahedron, an icosahedron, or a dodecahedron." -- end quote
Prana is life-force, or life energy, similar to spirit force/energy (androgyne), it permeates everything, even the void.

Earthly materials, namely minerals, are crystalline solids in which (as we learned in the microcosm section above) the constituent atoms are arranged in a regular, three-dimensional framework. The regular geometric shape of a well-formed mineral crystal is the exterior manifestation of an ordered internal atomic arrangement. Such regularity of the external form of minerals must surely mean that external crystal form is controlled by internal structure. First the microcosm, then the macrocosm follows. As above (in thought), so below (in body).
Because silicon and oxygen are the two most abundant elements in the earth's crust, many minerals contain these elements. A combination of silicon and oxygen is known as silica, and the minerals containing silica are silicates. Quartz (the most abundant type of crystal) is pure silica, but most silicates have one or more additional elements. Silicate minerals include about one-third of all known minerals, but their abundance is even more impressive when we realize that they make up about 95% of the Earth's crust. The basic building block of all silicate minerals is the silica tetrahedron, which consists of one silicon atom and four oxygen atoms, creating a 4-faced pyramidal structure having a negative charge (and can combine with positively charged ions or shares its oxygen atoms with other silica tetrahedra). Silica tetrahedra may join together to form chains, double-chains, and sheets of indefinite length. Silica tetrahedra are a three-dimensional framework when all four oxygens of the silica tetrahedron are shared by adjacent tetrahedra, and is electrically neutral (such as quartz).

As we can see, sacred geometry is found all throughout nature. This is the feminine principle of the earth, chemistry, and visible creation, but incorporated within it is male principles as well for balance. Triangles, pyramids, circles, and even stars are part of sacred geometry.
What do stars mean? Keep reading...
Female Star = 5 points (Matriarchal - many religions (sign of the Goddess))
Eastern Star, Morning Star, Venus, star shown on US flag, the Great Seal, US currency, LDS, Masonic, Freemasonry, Knights Templar, Wiccan, Ancient Mesopotamian origins, the Hebrews (symbol of Truth and five books of Pentateuch), Ancient Greece (pentalpha), Gnostic - "blazing star", Druids - "Godhead", Celts - goddess, Christians (pre-Inquisition) - five wounds of Christ (afterwards it was dubbed a negative symbol if turned upside down), the five senses, Alpha and Omega as One, Mayans, India, China, Egypt, found in Babylonian drawings and Neolithic caves as Venus - the Goddess Ishtar, and found in Scripture - especially the Hebrew Scriptures, Arthurian Grail romances, which are Gnostic and Kabbalistic teachings disguised as tales of knightly quests, the 5-pointed star also is found alternately as the 5 petalled flower (gothic cathedrals).
Male Star = 6 points (Patriarchal - Judaism/Kabbalah, etc. (sign of the God))
The 6-pointed star (hexagram), Jewish "Star of David", "Shield of David', "Magen David" (symbol is not of Jewish origin however), Masonic/Freemasonry symbol, traced from Egypt to Solomon, Arab Magic, Druids, Kabbalah, Astrology, Zionist, flag of Israel, symbol is comprised of a 6 within a 6 within a 6 (6 points, 6 points, 6 sides of the hexagon in the middle - the number of man 666 - book of Daniel's "willful king" (antichrist), "mark of the beast"), Astro-Egyptian belief of the first man-god Horus I & his death and resurrection, Saturn (beast) worship & Assyrian gods, Dagon's (the fish god) crown is a 6-pointed star (fish-cloak and hat, worn by the Pope: http://www.freemasonrywatch.org/sixpointedstar.html ), occultism, hexagram over the eagle's head on the US dollar bill, legendary symbol of Messiah due to lineage of David, Seal of Solomon,
A quote from a Rabbi: http://ohr.edu/ask/ask060.htm on the 6-pointed star:
In Kabbalistic teachings, one finds that the number six represents the Heavens and the Earth and the four directions (North, South, East, West)........ The star as a unified whole symbolizes the seventh "Ushpizen" -- David -- the "king" who unifies the whole. Furthermore, the Magen David has 12 sides: David as king unified the 12 tribes.
"Star Union" combined Male-Female Star = 7 points (Rennes-le-Château, tree of life (androgyne))
Regarding the number 7... Scriptural significance of the number 7 and Biblical description of the real Messiah & the 7-branched Candlestick (Menorah) which God gave to the children of Israel as an everlasting covenant (also mentioned in the New Testament) is considered part of numerology meanings (covered below). First, some information on the tree of life...
of Life Symbology
The tree of life are the Ten Sefirot as understood in Kabbalah (Kabbalah means "receiving" or "that which has been received" - Jewish Mysticism). These branches spreading off of the original vine (spirit-energy) are about creation and how it affects humans on earth, and how to transcend this earthly existence into the spiritual. These Ten Sefirot are representative of the ten dimensions which permeate creation. It is taught that when the universe came into being four of the dimensions (Sefirot) expanded into the material - stars, planets, matter, etc. - and are the dimensions that deal with the visible world including space-time. The other 6 dimensions (Sefirot) rolled up into a tiny ball and compacted and are the unseen world, but nevertheless a reality in our lives. Note the male and female aspects of some of the Sefirot (female in pink, male in blue). The meaning of the Ten Sefirot are as below (top to bottom, right to left):
According to Kabbalah, every human action here on earth affects the divine realm, either promoting or hindering the union of Shekhinah and her partner - the Holy One, blessed be He.

Math is the universal language, and the universe could not exist without it. Numbers, as well as the male-female aspects associated with it, permeates the universe. God (Spirit-energy) is greatest of all mathematicians and is the originator of the universe, including all its galaxies, stars, planets, and the meanings behind the zodiac. Anyone saying the zodiac is evil is likely ignorant (or in denial) of the wonder of this simple, yet complex fact that God created it for a purpose! His/Her purpose! To ignore it is to not realize the truths about God's perfect timing for all things (space-time is a 4th dimensional issue and God exists outside of space-time as well as within it). Ancient civilizations knew the secrets of the heavens. It's even evident in the symbology of the Bible (Revelation, which is a spiritually symbolic book) where the wheel within the wheel (picture the spiraling solar systems within a spiraling galaxy, all circling around us continually) depict the four faces (four directions - cardinal points around the Tabernacle in the wilderness) of:
the Eagle (Scorpio - north - tribe of Dan)
the Man (Aquarius - south - tribe of Reuben)
the Ox (Bull/Taurus - west - tribe of Ephraim)
and the Lion (Leo - east - tribe of Judah)
The 12 Tribes of Israel (zodiac) are as follows:
1. Virgo the Virgin Zebulun (earth
element) Quality: Mutable
Qualities: Fixed (determined - MALE), Cardinal (creative - androgynous FEMALE/male), or Mutable (changeable - FEMALE)
Elements: Fire (spirit & energy - MALE), Air (intellect & communication - MALE), Water (emotion & nurture - FEMALE), Earth (material things & security - FEMALE)
A good source for more information that goes into the qualities, elements, and temperaments or personalities (hot/cold/wet/dry and choleric/phlegmatic/sanguine/melancholic) can be found here: http://www.astrologycom.com/qual.html
Notice that the qualities of the 4 main directions/tribes (above) of
the zodiac are FIXED and represent one of each of the elements. Interestingly
enough, the natal chart in astrology is actually a wheel within a wheel and
incorporates numbers and symbols as part of the whys and wheres of the
planets, etc. in how they affect us in-utero, at birth (significantly), and throughout our
When I visited Dr. Bruce Cornet in spring of 2004 in Las Vegas (when
he worked at NIDS) we met with Lorraine DeFelice and she told us of something remarkable,
that she had discovered that people who see UFOs or have high UFO activity have
11s showing up in their astrological charts on those particular days. High UFO activity appears to occur during these
days/weeks/months when 11s are in the chart during their lives. Many people who see UFOs also, incidentally,
have synchronicitous events regarding seeing/experiencing the 11:11 (and other multiples
of 11s) on digital clocks, mile markers along the highway, addresses, phone numbers,
and other sources of numbers. She also
insisted that this personalized aspect of astrology and numerology are why people can
see upcoming events, or a trend toward events, in their chart, if they know
how to properly read them. It is why some
people are naturally lucky life or at gambling at certain times, why some
people are inclined toward spirituality, or others bad luck, etc. and why if
you want to place a bet at the horse races you better not count on the horse, but the
jockeys personal numbers for winning instead! Lorraine
DeFelice has perfected this aspect of numbers in her gambling program which can be found
at www.itsallinthetiming.com . Im not promoting gambling here, but I AM
attempting to show just how much the cosmos has influence on our lives, along with
numerology. Remember that mathematics IS the
universal language. It is our ticket to
understanding the universe, our world, and our inner world.
If God designed the cosmos, and these aspects of numbers (and for predicting times
and seasons in the world, and our lives) then why should something God created and
designed for us to use be evil? Unless
we are ruled by fear (rather than love and understanding) and adhere to fear-based beliefs
that we are taught (by the church systems, our parents, leaders, etc.) instead of
educating ourselves on these things, then we are simply choosing to remain ignorant and
fearful and are therefore victims of our circumstances.
From this standpoint Biblical numerology and astrology (obvious in the 12 tribes of
Israel) are something we should probably pay attention to so that we are equipped to
overcome astrological influences and be the Overcomers we were destined to be.
Kabbalistic Gematria is numerical mysticism (mysteries of numbers and their hidden meanings)
.Numbers and math = Male (blatant, obvious, loud, exposed, patterns)

Spirit / Son (new identity - fruit)
Spirit = FEMALE-male = Holy Spirit
Soul/Mind = Male-Female Interface = Father (MALE-female head)
Body = MALE-Female = Jesus/Son (or FEMALE-Male = daughter)
[male is typically chosen due to outward expression being a male trait and the Father/Sun being male-dominant, even though all things carry both traits, just some expressions are dominated by one aspect more than the other]
Female = potential energy (plan, idea, original source, ovum/seed)
Male = kinetic energy (cause, movement, sperm, fertilization, expression)
Male-Female = expression, proactive results (fruit, birth, procreation, co-creation)
Also..... people follow this same pattern throughout life... if you want to build a house you take these steps... First you use the feminine principle and are inspired (inspired means "in-spirit") and formulate a plan (comes from within (feminine) and may be expressed (masculine) by writing it down on paper). The potential of the entire house/structure is contained within that plan. The plan is the seed, the idea. Then you get up and start building the house, the male principle of cause and effect, expression, movement, construction, and little by little the house is formed. Then, the last principle is the fruit of your labors, the birth (actually a feminine expression, but what is birthed can be male or female, a son or a daughter), the house is finished, and you can enjoy the house that you built.

one of the divisions I left out of the title."
L.P. "Let me interrupt a little Charles. Skeptics
have always criticized Astrology because it places the Earth at the center of the
universe. Comment on that point of contention, if you will."
C.G. "Esoteric astrology also sees the cosmos
divided into four parts....Fourness, also known as the Four Elements. The ancient words
defining the elements are: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water, and four triangles fit perfectly
into the twelve houses. The fire signs of the zodiac, in this case represented by the
orange triangle, are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The Earth signs are: Taurus, Virgo, and
Capricorn; the brown triangle. The Air signs are: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius; the sky
blue triangle. And the Water signs are: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces; represented by the
Aqua colored triangle."
C.G. "The center of this Mandala makes reference to
the major divisional qualities of the Astrological system. At the precise center we find
the Bindu, or single point. This is the symbol of unity, the ultimate expression of the
holistic. The Bindu is The First archetype of Sacred Geometry, from which all form
evolves. The circle which encloses the twelve houses is also an expression of unity or
wholeness....Oneness. But our universe is created through the division of that unity and
necessarily, all individual expressions of universal Oneness are based in duality; hence
the Yin/Yang; The Projective and The Receptive....Unity into Duality.
C.G. "This is a fairly esoteric aspect of
Astrology, Leslie, which I know Pamela contemplated in her meditations. Each of the 12
houses or signs in the Zodiac represents a 30 degree section of the heavens, and each of
those houses are divided into 3 parts: 10 degrees each. These sections are called The
Decants (36 parts of the circle) and they are associated with the Astrological trinity:
the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. Each of the 36 decants are associated with one of those
three qualities. It's kind of a sub rhythm of trinity within the larger rhythm of that
same archetypal trinity. The 12 yellow decants are Cardinal (Spiritual); the 12 red
decants are Fixed (Physical/Material); and the 12 blue decants are Mutable (Mental). This
rythm is very interesting to me. I'm still thinking about it; but Pamela understood the

It is said that for every person born there is a star above their head and that that particular star is representative of themselves. Some stars (people) are lighter and brighter than others. Some stars burn out quickly, and others turn into a supernova or quasar. People in the Bible are often called Stars (people are male and female, although stars themselves are mostly the fire element, and the symbology of the nucleus (protons/neutrons form a more male aspect, although it contains some female too). Abraham was told that his descendants would be numbered like the stars in the heavens. The male aspect of a star is simply the fiery energy and drive and light and heat energy which gives life to the more feminine aspects which surround and encircle it.
If some people are stars which give off light, what happens when some die out or explode into a great flash of light (supernova) or turn into a black hole (no light given off)?
A black hole is the grave of a star, when it loses all its fuel it collapses (pit with no bottom - the "bottomless pit"?). Within the black hole is a gravitational vacuum.... the closer you get to a black hole, the greater the gravitational field. The greater the gravity, the more space-time is stretched, and slowed. If you were far away from a black hole and watched your friend flying in a rocket toward the black hole, he would get closer and closer and finally, in a split second, cross the "event horizon" (the place of no return - the gravity boundary) and disappear into the black hole. To you, the entire thing would take but seconds because YOUR perspective is from the outside, but because your friend is nearer to the event horizon before he crosses it into the black hole, the whole experience (for him only) is slowed down to nearly forever and it could seem like eons before he finally disappears into the black hole. It's all perspective, placement, space-time-gravity dependent, and RELATIVE. Black holes are a symbol of negativity, bending light and sucking in stars (eating them, like a psychic vampire or a person who steals other peoples' energy, users and abusers, selfishness, like a force unto its own, containing no light of its own, but stealing everyone else's). Once past the gravity boundary (event horizon) you hit something called the singularity in the middle of the black hole. It is not yet known what happens at this point.
Quasars (the remains of a star) are on outer rim of universe moving almost as fast as speed of light, but just before burn-out it turns into a black hole.
Supernovae are of two kinds:
Type1 probably happen in binary stars (closely orbiting stars) when one of the stars is a small, dense, white dwarf star. If the orbiting star gets too close to the white dwarf then gravity would draw matter from the other star... when the white dwarf gets 1.4 times as big as the Sun with the matter, it collapses into a supernova.
Type 2 occurs when a star much more massive than our Sun ends its life (like the death of a person) the star starts burning out. The core quickly collapses releasing amazing energy as neutrinos (a particle smaller than an atom which passes through everything, even the earth does not stop neutrinos) and electromagnetic radiation (energy that is electric (male) and magnetic (female)). It explodes in a supernova.
Supernovae shine brightest for only a few days, and after a few weeks or months or even years they start to fade. Some supernovae leave a small, dense, neutron star behind (composed of mainly neutrons - if it spins fast and is highly magnetized (female) it is a pulsar). Other supernovae leave an object called a black hole, or just an expanding shell of their outer layers. Supernovae are most often found in the brighter, larger, and older galaxies instead of the faint, smaller, younger ones. Spiral galaxies (such as ours - another aspect of male-female since spirals include symbols such as DNA, etc.) make more supernovae than egg-shaped ones. Our Sun is not orbiting a white dwarf, nor is it large enough to become a supernova. It would take a billion years from now before our Sun (son, Jesus, Ra, Horus, light-giver) to run out of fuel and swell into a red giant star before going into a white dwarf form. When our Sun uses up all of its helium gas, it will collapse with a huge explosion causing debris to fly out into space to help form new solar systems, starting the whole system over again (the great play of life, the great story retold over and over, the never-ending circle, alpha and omega (beginning and the end)... all of which are in the form of a circle, which has it's beginning at it's end, looping forever. Continual creation. If God is truly a Creator, then it would make sense that He/She would continue to create, and create, and create. WE, are co-creators with God... not alone are we God (as mere pieces of the original whole of God), but separate, with God WITHIN us, we are gods (Psalms 82:6).
In your typical breakdown of differences
between males and females, regarding relationships, you'll hear the common saying:
are from Mars
(Mars means war (Cairo
also means Mars))
are from Venus (Venus
means love (Venus
is also the "evening & morning star" - Jesus))
are typically about STATUS (blatant,
outer energy, competition, importance)
are typically about CONNECTION (mysterious,
inner feelings, friendship, love)
of information = Male
Those who break down
information into pieces to see each individual part and deal with it on that level, piece
by piece. Often judgmental in nature, skeptical, and more discerning between details
Religions: Judaism, Mohammedism, Catholicism, Naziism, etc.
Occupations: Scientists, Medical Dr.'s, Engineers, Math Teachers, etc.
are about connecting information = Female
Those who see the whole, the big picture, and deal with it on that level, on a more holistic level. Often more forgiving in nature, understanding, and less discerning between details
Religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, New Age, Universalists, etc.
Occupations: Alechemist, Reiki Practitioners, Artists, Montessori Teachers, etc.
When I was young I had a book called Mathemagic
which detailed the differences in numbers (odd numbers being
male and even numbers being female) and I later learned
that the alphabet was considered similarly, where consonants,
having a HARD sound (requiring the lips to close, or the tongue to touch the palate, etc.
in order to pronounce them) were male, and vowels (A,E,I,O,U) having a SOFT sound (able to be
pronounced with the mouth open and no use of the tongue or lips) being female. Consonants
are many, having different sounds (split into many specialized sounds
aspect), and vowels are few, are much more versatile/flexible, can stand alone or be used
in different combinations, and create new sounds (this lumping/bonding effect is a female
aspect). If sounds and harmonics (realize
music is a feminine right-brained thing even though it sometimes includes consonants (in
singing) can have male-female aspects, then what about language itself? It is here that we realize that the power of the
spoken WORD is so powerful. It is thought and
energy manifested into being.
I thought it was interesting as a child to learn that in Spanish they have words with gender. In English it is not so much this way, but in Spanish, like "mesa" (which means table) it is feminine. I had never thought of a table as a female! To me, it had always seemed neutral. But in most languages of the world there are feminine and male aspects to words and their meanings. In Spanish the words el and la are used before words like mesa. El is masculine, and la is feminine. To say "the table" in Spanish, one would say, "la mesa." If you used "el mesa" then it would be incorrect. So when learning a new language like this you also have to learn the gender of the meanings of words! In English, although we don't necessarily have words with gender connotations, we do have certain things/objects which are considered to be male or female. A good example would be a boat/ship, or a car, a plane or space shuttle... these are all considered to be females. A pirate on his ship will say, "She's a mighty good ship." Men throughout history have attributed a female aspect to things they ride in, or that brings them movement (remember the electrons' movement bringing a change), or a change of scenery by going from place to place. Women are the common motivators of change, often being more flexible than the left-brainness of men, which is typically standardized and methodical and unchanging in processes. Men, however, bring stability and strength (structural foundation), where women are considered to be more emotional and unstable (chemistry which creates bonds).
Left-brain = Male (speech, judgement/objective, logic, linear, analytical, rational (western))
Right-brain = Female (emotion, feeling, art, comprehension, creativity, divergent, intuitive, holistic (eastern))
Balanced-brained = Male-female (equal in both aspects, pulling from both sides harmoniously)
The term "mankind" (remember that MANkind inherently includes the feminine aspect) is a patriarchal form. Many of the worlds' religions are patriarchal, and interestingly enough, even the feminine religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, etc.) were borne from one of the oldest known religions, Judaism, and Kabbalah (Jewish Mysticism - where many of these male-female aspects are taught and known as a code and archetype of how the universe was created, rather than taking the Bible or Torah only from a literal standpoint). Christianity and all its factions and doctrines, creeds, and church religions from Catholicism to Protestants to New Age to Fundamentalists, all stemmed from Judaism as well. Judaism, however, although the most renowned and influential monotheistic religion in the world, still got its teachings and traditions from a higher source.... the ultimate TRUTH of which a piece (or pieces) of lies within the heart of all religions of the world. Just as no one religion is THE truth by itself, no one person is THE God by him/herself. All religions have a common thread of truth running through them, just as all peoples have a common thread of God (Male-Female Spirit-Energy) running through them, making them "gods" individually, but GOD collectively, if joined together with the unified energy of the entire universe(s) on ALL levels. This is infinite and beyond comprehension for the left-brain (male side of the brain) to think about, but the right-brain (female side of the brain) has no problem understanding the concepts and feelings of this universal connection.
What is "right" in some peoples' minds (depending on how they were raised, and where in the world, under a patriarchal or matriarchal society) is not always what is correct universally. For some, like the Jews, the father of the house is the leader of the household and has the final say so in all things. The woman is believed to receive her spirituality from God THROUGH the man. Only if she is single does she receive God through herself. This is the same aspect taught in Christianity where Paul speaks of a woman being under subjection to the man (husband) and obeying him in all things. BUT, the man is also told, consequently, to love his wife as himself. Remember that men are (typically, in patriarchal societies) about status and ego, and that they are often in love with themselves in some fashion whereas the woman is typically more flexible, giving up herself and thinking of her husband and children before herself (not in all cases, obviously). Where this arrangement works good for both parties if they agree to it, believe it, and live it, it takes BOTH parties doing their part in order for there to be harmony. If, lets say, the woman does her part continually and faithfully, but the man loves himself and his ideas and wants his way ALL of the time, the woman will feel used and unloved and there will be friction in the relationship and ultimately a breakdown of the marriage may ensue. But, turning the tables here, if the man does his part, loving his wife as himself, and giving himself for her in all things, and the woman does not respect the man and give him the status he needs to feel as strong and as competent as he should, then he will go away from the marriage feeling unloved as well, disrespected, and shamed. It goes both ways. Matriarchal, or patriarchal, it doesn't matter. Matriarchal societies such as the Native Americans have had, work well for them (women naturally run the home more efficiently than men, typically), just as patriarchal societies such as the Jews have had also work well for them, bringing their left-brained dominance into play, being some of the most wealthy peoples on the planet. Do you see a trend here? Matriarchal societies tend to be happy and in communion with each other, peaceful, whereas patriarchal societies tend to be ego-driven, status and money oriented. There are always exceptions to the rules however.
What caused all of these matriarchal/patriarchal societies to begin with (within the races) is commonly a left or right brained functioning of the people themselves. Right-brained people (men or women) are typically more spiritual, peaceful, artistic, and laid back types. Left-brained people (men or women) are more driven, more into the physical world, humanity, math, and logical. The real deal is that both men and women, although typically "typed out" as women being predominately right-brained, and men being predominately left-brained, can really be either! BOTH GENDERS HAVE BOTH MALE AND FEMALE ASPECTS IN THEM (just as both genders have two hemispheres of the brain), it's just that one usually predominates over the other. Neither one predominating the other is either "right" or "wrong." It's not uncommon to see a male who is right-brained and gentle-natured and a follower, and a woman who is left-brained and aggressive and a leader. Frankly, I've personally known some men that would make better women (being seamstresses, cooks, able to run a household, who clean and do dishes, and who make good counselors because of their ability to bond and connect with people), just as I've known some women who would make better men (having strong personalities, being terrible at cooking but can fix broken-down vehicles with ease, are Presidents of big companies, and who are stronger in being able to judge situations effectively rather than break down crying from too much emotion). The male aspect is considered "strong," and the female aspect is considered "weak," but the fact is that the "stronger" aspect in the forefront is just one form of expression, just as the "weaker" is the unseen force which is the ultimate force of movement and change behind the scenes, another form of expression.
The right and left brain are merely dualities, polarizations, just like good/evil, black/white, right hand of God (blessings)/left hand of God (correction), yin/yang, destruction vs. creation, winter solstice (cold)/summer solstice (heat), long/short, up/down, fat/skinny, etc. One is not better than the other, but work in harmony with each other.
Thought = Male (in the forefront, status - conscious)
Spirit = Female (behind the scenes, meek - subconscious)
Unified Thought & Spirit = Male-female
In NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) it is a well known science of the brain and how it works. NLP is used in courtrooms and by the police and military, etc. to determine if someone is lying or telling the truth. It's knowing how the brain is "wired" in people (left-handers are typically cross-wired, although some right-handed people can be cross-wired). The left eye and left side of the body is directed by the right hemisphere of the brain, just as the right eye and the right side of the body is directed by the left hemisphere of the brain.
Visual (seeing - energy/pattern recognition (male), spatial/geometry (female))
Kinesthetic (feeling/sensing - female)
Auditory Tonal (understanding by tone/sound instead of words/definition - female)
Auditory Ditigal (understanding by words/definition instead of tone/sound - male)
Olfactory (smell - not crossed, L-brain=L nostril, R-brain=R nostril, ?)
Gustatory (taste - ?)
The left brain (male aspect) is the logical thinking (science) relying on facts and information allocated by speech and definition, pattern recognition via analytical processes, and the universal language of the universe... math.
The right brain (female aspect) is the understood feeling (spirituality) relying on comprehension of symbols connected by sound (harmonics/music/tone) and spatial geometrical shapes (art) as well as feeling/sensing, intuition, inner knowing, trust.
Taking into account the aspects of the right/left and female/male aspects of ourselves, made in the image of God, who is also male/female energies, we must ask ourselves now,
Think about it. All the clues were given up above... follow the original rules and laws of the universe set forth in the microcosm and the macrocosm of our reality(ies). The sun is the Father of thought who leads by verbal expression due to male dominance within the nucleus of its being... the female planets and moons is/are the Mother of intuition who follows and orbits the greater gravity of the sun due to female energies which move and change according to the seasons. God is considered male (even though He is both) because that has been the order in which the universe was constructed... after its Creator! Woman is female and is the hidden force behind the movement and represents true change. Man is the male and is the obvious force causing the movement and represents stability. It's not about patriarchal vs. matriarchal, nor is it about "right" or "wrong"... It's simply a principle, not a prejudice!
The answer to that question is easy.... which one in the marriage/partnership/business deal/friendship/relationship is the true right-brained feminine aspect (follower) and which one is the true left-brained masculine aspect (leader)? Most are both, but who is dominant in which way? Ideally, there is a sharing of responsibilities where all is equal and certain tasks are allocated to the one who is best at that particular aspect. I love to cook but hate to do dishes. In our house we have the agreement that I do the cooking and he enjoys being served, and he does the dish cleaning and I am "served" in this way by not having to do it. It works out well for us this way. Both of us, by the way, are balanced-brained individuals. We have no problem with crossing traditional barriers. Our brains function in a balanced way, making use of both sides EQUALLY.
But what about other couples or partners who are not balanced-brained? Even gay/lesbian couples (in case there's still people out there who haven't noticed!) take on the "traditional" roles of male/female with one being dominant and aggressive (masculine role) and the other more emotional and submissive (female role). No matter what gender they are, or what sexual preference people have, what it really boils down to is... HOW ARE YOU WIRED? It is well known that women who lose their husband to death or divorce, and must raise children on their own tend to find their "maleness" qualities within themselves which come out in time, so that they are both mother and father to the children. Same goes for fathers who are no longer married to a wife (provided either gender does not get or stay involved in a new relationship which would remove this ability to manifest opposite roles via left/right brain-dominance). People can also rewire their brains... sometimes it happens by conscious choice, sometimes subconsciously, and other times through some kind of traumatic event which rewires them due to the experience(s).
The point of all this is here... the principles involved are merely to establish (within the universe) a sense of a source or giver, and a vessel or receiver and a marriage (bonding) of the two for procreation/continuing co-creation. God (energy) is the source from which all things came, in whatever manner it came (the order involved in a Big Bang throughout aeons of time with the self-structure of laws put in place through evolution, or the Word spoken for all of creation to be made in a literal 6 day period, or whatever other view you may have in your belief system), and "He" has the purpose of being the one who is in control, as the leader, the director (thoughts and speech), and originator and manipulator of our lives as groom/husband, and we (both men and women) are to be the bride/wife (bride of Christ, if you are a Christian), the female, the follower, the vessels of movement and change and trust so that we may MARRY (join, bond, become ONE) in a most ultimate promise of LOVE and DEVOTION and COMMITMENT, with the female (us) obeying the husband (God), and the husband (God) loving us as Himself, giving Himself for us. Again, this is a principle... not a prejudice. Once this is understood from a deeper level, then we can realize that true prejudice and narrow-mindedness lies only in the heart and minds of the ones who want it to be so by the limitations of their chosen reality. Lest we forget the order and structure (maleness/patterns/rules/laws) set forth in the universe which are visible all around us at all times..... if we have the eyes to see.

To know God, one must know thyself, for God (male and female) lives within. Until we are in tune with this inner knowing of right-brained realization then we are out of touch with ourselves, the MOTHER side of God, and the energy of the universe, and are therefore atheists, the ultimate in left-brain thinking (separateness). Also, until we are in tune with the abilities of logic, thought, reason, and purpose then we are out of touch with our humanity, the FATHER part of God, and the science of the universe, and are therefore flighty, lost, flying aimlessly in an emotional cloud of air. A balance between hemispheres (right/left - female/male) produces harmony in thought and spirit. It is this union and balance which brings unity and peace within.
