All things in life contain pieces of both the masculine and feminine energies. Balance of the masculine and feminine energies are a key component in the existence of all life. This does not simply apply just in sex, as “male and female.” It applies to the ways that nature is created and in the creative aspects of all things on earth. The Principle of Gender and its impact in our lives is something that is worth contemplating and understanding in greater detail.
This principle ties back to the Principle of Correspondence. Masculinity and femininity exists in the physical plane, the mental (thought plane), and the spiritual plane as well. Gender plays a role in all things from generation, creation, and re-generation. Literally existence cannot come into being without the Principle of Gender.
Right Brain Vs. Left Brain
The masculine side of gender is the more aggressive, progressive, conquest driven, explorative energy that drives progress. The feminine is the open-minded, sacred, treasured, protective energy, that maintains tradition and honors the priority of what is most important in life. This also materializes in the “left-brain,” versus, “right-brain,” aspects of thought
Some may have heard of the characteristics of left brain people being more critical in thought, practicality, and immersed in the details of life. Nothing can be true to these individuals unless proven through factual evidence. Then there are the more right-brain thinkers that express themselves in the arts, are more open to new perspectives, and tend to be more creative and thought provoking in their thinking.
“Left-brain,” tends to be more masculine based and “right-brain” can be seen as more feminine. The key is to try and “balance” this thinking in order to become the most aware and effective in our everyday lives. Too much masculine energy, without a good balance of feminine, can lead to a power struggle to the extremes of possible reckless abandon.
In this modality we lose perspective of what is most important and forget the principles which began our purpose in the first place. Masculine energy tends to be very “forward and future based.” With too much feminine energy, without a balance of the masculine energy, we can be left dangling without action, purpose, and causation. We would be too aloof in our own thought. Feminine energy tends to remain in the present moment and does not lean too far into the future.
The Balance of the Gender Principle
All beings contain this gender principle within them; they exist as two parts for the whole. Every male has feminine energy, and every female has masculine energy. In some, the scales tip far to the extremes. The goal again to get the best return and insight to balance ourselves and use both these energies to their fullest extent.
The most exponential use of this principle is how Gender can be made responsible for creation, generation, and re-generation on the mental and spiritual planes. Power can be found through the balancing of the gender energies within us in regards to our relationships and environments in which we inhabit
Tuning Into Your Balance of Life
By tuning into these energies we can begin to realize truths regarding how present we are with our lives. How focused are we on the future and past verse the present moment? What have we have sacrificed for our goals and aspirations? How do we choose to protect and honor are our highest priorities? Have we stretched our learning and development in pursuit of what we desire the most? Are we willing to give in order to receive?
If these energies are in balance in our lives, we can get into better synchronicity with life. Choosing the middle path between extremes and seeking to balance all things in life is one of the keys to becoming the most centered in life. The Principle of Gender is just one of seven principles to help you bring more understanding and balance to your life.
Find Your Own Truth
I hope anyone reading has enjoyed the breakdown on the seven principles of Natural Law. These teachings come from the Hermetic background. It is not a background that I formally subscribe to. Rather, I find a great deal of truth in these principles that pertains to my own life.
As I’ve stated in other posts, I’m simply aiming to find truth in life. I’ll take truth that resonates and feels right from any source, and the hermetic Kybalion seems to resonate at a high level for me. But don’t simply take my word for it, feel free to research for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
I welcome everyone to obtain their own truths. Dive deep into what they are given to try and understand if they are simply following a tradition that has been passed down, or perhaps stigmatized from a personal biased perspective from human kind. Ask if what you come across resonates at a high frequency of truth in life that cannot be left up for interpretation.
I prefer to base my studies in left and right brain thinking, all while trying to stay as balanced as possible while constantly working to achieve lasting self-mastery, without straying too far from my own personal growth path.
Best of luck to all brave enough to venture into the unknown but determined enough to come back with the truth…
I welcome any and all thoughts – please don’t be shy and leave a thought, comment, or situation in your life that you came across that made a great impact for you.
