Knowing we all contain both genders might help us navigate some of the current confusion, judging what we’ve already got on-board as toxic. That bears looking at. Though it isn’t widely taught, our female body runs 40% testosterone, the male hormone, just as the male runs 40% estrogen.
Things are more both/and than we knew.
When we stay locked down in the mental aspect of being, it’s easy to get lost on the polarized fringes. There’s no end to the either/or rabbit holes as the clash of new/old, Left/Right, religion/atheism, etc., sing their siren songs. We’re polarized on the teeter-totter of many paradigms.
Our beliefs are the polarizations. The missing ingredient is often simple respect, honoring others.
It may be a good time to move toward the middle, to stand evenly balanced on the fulcrum long enough to take a new look. As we acknowledge that every belief comes with its own set of blinders, we’re better able to see the both/and possibilities that abound as we loosen our death-grip on our current beliefs.
WHAT ARE WE?
The next step into peace, harmony, & even transcendence involves how we self-identify. We can see ourselves as the body, the mind, or the Spirit/soul aspect of our being, the both/and containing it all. Our balanced position on the fulcrum opens our view to a wholeness most have not yet contemplated or owned.
Though we might think it’s the body’s view to identify strongly as male or female, the fact that every body runs both hormones undercuts that idea. We’ve been both/and all along, just largely unaware. We have every opportunity to be a well-balanced celebration of both, but that calls for different choices, for stepping away from our current polarization.
Gender identity is clearly one of the tests we in the USA are undergoing. We’re certainly more flexible, now, yet we remain polarized — by (cabal) design. Perhaps the knowledge that we’re all of it, not just one side of the spectrum, will help, but that’s up to us. Every tool is only as good as its use.
Our tendency to polarize arises largely from the mind’s either/or tendencies. Living in relativity as it does, either/or rules the day, relegating both/and to myth or unprovable theory. Spirit isn’t just another aspect of being, it’s another world, shockingly more expansive than 3D relativity.
Spirit contains form, not the other way around.
That doesn’t make our Spirit/soul better than the mind, either — just other. Both have their purposes, their raison d’être in the both/and view.
Our leg is not better than our arm, it just serves another purpose, its usefulness dependent on the task at hand. It’s this way for everything, could we but see it, in the both/and view.
For those ready to take it a step farther, we don’t need to go to other dimensions; we’re already there. Time/space aren’t what the mind takes them to be, but when we’re heavily mind-identified we don’t see this. Why not? Our mind can’t understand the things of Heart, of soul; it can’t go there, being but a small portion of the greater whole.
FREEDOM OF PERSONAL CHOICE
It comes down to the personal choices we make. We’re more complete, more whole than we realize at this time, but that realization is cresting the horizon. One of our choices is whether to remain in either/or relativity or to step into the both/and perspective & expand.
The beauty, here, is that no one can make anyone else’s choices for them; we each get to choose. Those who remain mind-centric don’t see the whole playing field, just parts of it. Most are busy trying to convince others that their view is best, doing the old either/or, right/wrong dance.
Today, we have MS-13 threatening Kayne West with violence, & for what? For holding another opinion, taking another perspective. For some, it’s think our way or we’ll kill you — talk about polarized!
We begin to step out of the old ways the minute we make real contact with Heart, which shatters the old limited views. We were all under a sort of mental hypnosis, fed certain perspectives on things throughout life. We’re programmed to be polarized, wars being the obvious evidence.
Could we but come to the teeter-totter’s center & balance there, we’d be more flexible, more able to hear & learn from others, to see through their eyes. The right/wrong hammer many use to defeat the perceived enemy is a part of the old, programmed paradigm, useless to Heart.
Just as we’re 60/40 in gender, we also contain both poles of the right/wrong, Light/dark paradigms. No one is perfect, nor is human perfection a reasonable goal within 3D relativity. It’s quite backward from the deeper reality whose very starting point is ultimate perfection. We have that, already; we don’t come into incarnation to find it.
It’s Who we are, vs who we take ourselves to be.
ENJOY & APPRECIATE
If some of this is mind-pretzeling, my suggestion is to enjoy it, to let it release the pressure of being “right,” of besting another. One day we’ll come together in celebration of our differences, no longer trying to force one another into our molds, our beliefs. Today’s arrogance will be a thing of the past, the arrogance of believing, even knowing we’re right, making all who dare to disagree wrong.
Just as each body goes through a process of maturation, so does every society. Perhaps ours is emerging from its teen years into a greater maturity. We’ll look back on all the fussing, fuming, & fighting with a wry smile once we own the both/and-ness of it all.
I’ll leave you with today’s beautiful Abraham quote:
Abraham-Hicks Daily Quote, 2018/05/02
“If all you did was just look for things to appreciate you would live a joyous, spectacular life. If there was nothing else that you ever came to understand other than just look for things to appreciate, it’s the only tool you would ever need to predominantly hook you up with who you really are. That’s all you’d need.” [Emphasis added]
