Verständigung unter Frauen und Männern


Büste der Nefertiti, Altes Museum, Berlin

Frauen und das Weibliche sind ein Ausdruck und Geschenk des Göttlichen.

 

Hawkins empfiehlt den Gender-Klassiker von John Gray, Männer sind anders. Frauen auch, Goldmann Verlag, 1. Mai 1993 zu lesen [Original: Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, 1997], um die Rolle der Frau und des Weiblichen sowie die Rolle des Mannes und des Männlichen besser nachvollziehen zu können.1

 

2006, dreizehn Jahre später, vertiefte die US-amerikanische Neuropsychiaterin und populärwissenschaftliche Erfolgsautorin Dr. Louann Brizendine die Genderforschung mit zwei aufklärenden Büchern zur biologischen und kulturell inkorporierten Ausstattung der Geschlechter. Brizendine bewegt sich auf dem schmalen Grat der politischen Unkorrektheit, da sie die Unterschiede in der männlichen und weiblichen Hirnphysiologie aufzeigt.

Zitate von D. Hawkins

⚠ Achtung Siehe Power vs. Truth (engl.) Januar 2013

  • Herzensliebe trat als geschätzte menschliche Fähigkeit erst vor wenigen Jahrhunderten in Erscheinung.
    ➤ Zunächst wurde Liebe als Leidenschaft und Besitz betrachtet,
    ➤ entwickelte sich aber dann zum großen Gefühl, und "Opfer aus Liebe" stellte sich als edles Ideal vor Augen.
    Die Blüte der Weiblichkeit hob ihr Ansehen vom Arbeitstier → Sexobjekt → Kindermädchen hin zur geschätzten Freundin, Partnerin und Liebenden. Das kennzeichnete die wirkliche tagtägliche Anerkennung des menschlichen Geists/Gemüts als ein Wesensmerkmal, das Liebe anzog und unterstützte.
    ➤ Die Zuneigung erweiterte Liebe zum entscheidenden Motiv für dauerhafte Langzeitpartnerschaften, und Treue erschien sowohl als Tugend als auch als Hauptstütze für Beständigkeit. FU Licht des Alls. Die Wirklichkeit des Göttlichen, S. 536, 2003

 

  • Unternehmen, die von weiblichen Geschäftsführerinnen geführt werden, werfen deutlich mehr Gewinne ab als solche, die von männlichen Geschäftsführern geleitet werden. [Frauen haben nicht ebenso lang am unlauteren Energiefeld der Arbeitswelt teilgehabt. Daher bringen sie in Führungspositionen insgesamt ein höheres Maß an Integrität mit ein. [Dr. Hawkins kalibrierte männliche Geschäftsführer im Schnitt bei BW 199. Dieser Wert ist kurz davor von BW 194 gestiegen.] Sedona Seminar Thought and Ideation, 3 DVD set, 28. February 2004

Quotes by D. Hawkins

⚠ Caveat See Power vs. Truth, January 2013

Personal avowals in respect to women, femininity, emotions

  • If I tell you that the Feminine is Infinitely Divine, worshipful as the expression of God in that expression, you know that's the Truth, is it not? […] What speaks right now searches for how to express that so as to bypass the resistance of the intellect, the mind and the ego, and you see as I saw as a boy the incredible magnificence of the Divinity of Woman. One instant, my Grandfather said, "You never speak to your Grandmother that way." I got it! I got how she was held! Sedona Seminar Perception and Illusion: Distortions of Reality, 3 DVD set, 4.

Aversion to emotions due to primacy effect of imprinted "masculinity"

Primacy effect and recency effect

  • All the emotions that I had pushed down – all the tons of feelings that I had stuffed out of awareness so as to clear the decks for action – now came up [...] I learned how to be aware of these feelings, their nature and a multitude of descriptive terms [...] I was somewhat dismayed at my lack of connectedness with my own inner feelings. I saw my masculine protest about entering this whole unfamiliar dimension. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Releasing Method, chapter 2, S. 3, printed unpublished manuscript, Veritas Publishing, 1984, cited in: Scott Jeffrey, US American business and marketing consultant, author, Doctor of Truth.

Fear of illogical feelings and rejection of women and femininity

  • I saw that my fear of feelings, due to not knowing how to handle them, and my resentment at being their victim, had accounted for my rejection of women and the resultant typical male rationalization that the world of feelings is for women only and unmasculine. I rejected feelings because they were illogical, but I paid a great price. I had cut myself off from half my life and diminished the quality of my relationships. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Sedona Releasing Method, chapter 2, S. 8-9, printed unpublished manuscript, Veritas Publishing, 1984, cited in: Scott Jeffrey, US American business and marketing consultant, author, Doctor of Truth.

Yang represents dedication/intention.
Yin represents the process of devotion.


 

  • To be forgiving, to be gentle, to be that which is supportive of life. So that becomes not what you do, but what you are. You become that which supports life, supports all endeavors. It encourages those who need encouragement, and it becomes the energy of life itself. So it becomes almost like the manifestation of the Divine Mother, as well as the Divine Father. So, it's the emerging of the two, you see. That which is nurturing, at the same time that which is demanding of excellence. Audio series The Highest Level of Enlightenment, CD 2 of 6, track 8, Dr. Hawkins Teaches Devotional Non-Duality, United Kingdom, January 2005

 

  • Romantic love didn't even appear until extremely late, in very recent times only a few hundred years ago. Women and men didn't hang out together. Women talked about babies and stuff like that. And guys went out and did war and got drunk. Whoring, drinking, brawling, and killing people, that was what guys were about.
    Women hang out with themselves. And guys hang out with themselves.
    Romance didn't play any part of this. There was a lot of eroticism, but not romance. […]
    It's only very recent that romantic love has appeared as a desirable virtue. Caring about the welfare of others has just recently been birthed on the planet. The care about others, much less the care about the environment, or the quality of life, is extremely recent. It just got born, practically. Audio lecture and Q&A by David R.

  • The way men traditonally cross over the level of 200, the way you cross over from [moral] cowardice to integrous courage is you literally do walk into the bullets in the name of a higher principle is you literally do walk into the bullets in the name of a higher principle, in the name of God, country, the king, divinity, womanhood, the family, university, for whatever reason you do it is for some higher principle other than an egoistic one.

Note:

Capitalism [LoC 340] is paternalistic.
Each one gets what they've worked for.

Socialism [LoC 305] is maternalistic.
Benefits are equally shared.

  • The archetypes are a powerful field of consciousness. [...]
    The archetype of the feminine and the archetype of the masculine can not be denied. [...] Our society reflects that.
    The maternal is socialistic. Each one benefits equally. The mother doesn't decide which of her children to love more than the others. She loves them all equally. That's the matriarchy. Whereas the patriarchy is the masculine principle. You get what you've worked for. So capitalism [LoC 340] is paternalistic. And socialism [LoC 305] is maternalistic.

  • [Paraphrased] Studies reveal that women's and men's brains "light up" differently. In men, only left hemisphere "lights up" while both sides are active in women.

Women's role in the 30ties and 40ties

  • When I grew up the woman’s place was in the home, she was the matriarch, the woman ruled the house, The male was supposed to go out there and bring home the bacon. He didn’t rule the house, he expressed his opinions but. [...] Mother ruled in the house and she was revered because she was the sustainer of life. The mother had profound importance. As a boy if your mother asked you to whitewash the basement on a Saturday afternoon and you had to cancel your baseball game if you looked even the slightest disappointed, your father would say, "Wipe that look off your face. It's disrespectful to your mother." The mother had a very high rank, within her domain, she ruled supreme. And men, when she entered the room, stood up. […]
    So the woman’s rank, or status, or worth was revered. The word mother was revered, respected and she was also protected. The men went to war and protected the mother and children. […]
    Well, I didn’t know of a woman who wanted a job in the work place. It was thought when I grew up that to have the woman in the house working was a disgrace. For a man to have his wife out there working was a disgrace. It meant he couldn’t afford to make a living, his wife had to go to work. It was pathetic. Everyone felt sorry for him and he was a weak sister. 'He can’t even make enough money to support his wife for God's sake.' She had to get a job in Wal-Mart. So the meaning of a woman’s working was completely different. The only one woman who worked was the spinster who had to and everyone felt sorry for the spinster. So you see how different it is contextualized now. So you see what an error it is to go into retrospect into a different context of relationship and humanity and what was normal and accepted and expected. It was normal it was expected everybody fulfilled their social role as it was defined at the time. Sedona Seminar Perception and Illusion: Distortions of Reality, 3 DVD set, 4. May 2002

 

  • When the woman came up to the doorway, the man opened it for her, and those gestures were to honor her, you understand. Women were being honored.
    The women's movement didn't get that. It was so paranoid, it didn't even get that it was being honored. It thought it was being insulted. I tell you. So, anyway, low self esteem and paranoia sees insult everywhere. That's the egotism and narcissism, the entitled attitude and the narcissism that undermines, so that you think that to be honored is to be insulted.
    So, anyway. The mother reigned supreme. You didn't use any horrid language in her presence. If you wanted to […] a restaurant there was a separate entrance […] called the family entrance. Women never entered the front entrance, that was for the bar and vulgarity, and you never saw a single woman at the bar, a woman walking in a bar I never saw it in my whole life. And the first time I did see it I was like shocked. Sedona Seminar Perception and Illusion: Distortions of Reality, 3 DVD set, 4. May 2002

 

 

  • It is permissible in our culture for women to be intuitive, to call upon the nonlinear side of their awareness. It is not so OK for men to do that. A man has to be somewhat more evolved to give himself permission to call upon his intuitive side. In our culture the woman is more free to be intuitive. And therefore she perfects that side before the man does. (Calibrated as true.)
    The man who is mature and not challenged by the feminine begins to then look at her as a teacher of the intuitive side of life. Just as she looks to him to the doingness side of success in the world.
    So she learns traits that were once considered masculine. And he learns traits that were once considered feminine.

Amalgamation of the feminine and the masculine aspects

  • The secure adult male acknowledges that quality [feminine intuition, inner knowingness], in fact calls upon it and admires it. […] He begins to see that as a valuable tool, that she has another avenue of knowingness and knowledge and he begins to admire that. And he begins to listen to her. And she teaches him then how that happens. And he begins to respect it and develop it in his own self. And so you have the amalgamation of the feminine and the masculine aspects on the psychological level within the mature individual of either sex. […]
    In the end the man and the woman admire and support each other. I think their qualities spring forth depending on the particular culture.

  • [...] to domesticate this beast and turn him into a reasonable husband. […] Women do a wonderful job of it. Because when men are devoid of women in their culture they do become animals. Look at the Old West before women arrived. It was gun slingers and robbers [...] It was the law of the jungle and the law of the gun. Men degenerate quickly into the wolf pack. The instinctual evolution of men is out of the animal nature. […]
    The pack mentality lies underneath there. Without the civility of domestication which is represented by influence of the feminine with the masculine testosterone would have destroyed a long time ago. Testosterone left to its own devices would have killed off mankind a long time ago.

Women mystics

Facing their dark past

  • When you transcend your karma, then you have the capacity to handle more. More negativity comes up for you to clear. Famous women mystics would reach a high state and then crash. They would feel they had been deserted by God. Read about them in the Encyclopedia Britannica. You can read what they went through. There are about half a dozen. It’s par for the course! You feel like you are going backwards, but you are not. You have earned the right to see how awful you have been. Sedona Seminar Is the Miraculous Real?, 3 DVD set, 9. December 2006

 

  • If you look at God as Great Father or Great Mother, then S/He would delight in your enlightenment. God experiencing the joy of His own Divinity is both the pathway and the destination, both the traveller and the destination. Sedona Satsang Q&A, CD 2 von 2, 10. January 2007

 

  • Question: Is having children compatible with the path of enlightenment?
    Answer: Is it a distraction or an opportunity to further your skills? It would be how you hold it. It could be that the child advances your consciousness faster because of the love you have toward it. If you are looking for monastic drivenness, then a child would be out of the question – more women are turning toward that now. Sedona Seminar God vs. Science. Limits of the Mind, 3 DVD set, 17.

Quotes by D. Hawkins – Women and feminity

(↓)

Hawkins' teachings are predominantly masculine.

  • The masculine principle is epitomized by otherworldliness, rationality, and the conscious mind. The feminine principle is represented by thisworldliness, non-rationality, and the unconscious.
    Hawkins' system (as well as his value structure) is predominately masculine as it denies ambiguity and the important role of the unconscious. His system values transcendent realities over earthly existence. Scott Jeffrey, US American business and marketing consultant, author, Power vs. Truth. Peering Behind the Teachings of David R.

Loye bezieht sich auf seine Lebensgefährtin Dr. Riane Eisler (*1931) österreichstämmige US-amerikanische Makrokulturhistorikerin, Soziologin, Evolutionstheoretikerin, Partnerschaftsforscherin, Sozialaktivistin, Referentin und Autorin.

  • Für mich war es außerordentlich wichtig, mich mit einer Frau auszutauschen, die imstande ist, mich auf der Basis von Ebenbürtigkeit zu lieben, so wie ich sie. In einer vermännlichten, vom Herrschaftsdenken dominierten Gesellschaft kostet es zahlreiche Ehen und Liebesbeziehungen, um die uns eingehämmerten Verhaltensmuster, andere zu beherrschen, abzuschleifen. Frauen sind im Begriff, diesen Durchbruch zu schaffen. Sie haben begonnen, über den bestehenden Käfig der Dominanz-Hierarchie hinauszublicken, in dem noch nahezu alle Männer praktisch ohne Ausnahme gefangen sind.

  • Die Erfahrung lehrt uns dagegen, dass jeder Schritt nach vorwärts unveränderlich begleitet war von einem Schritte zur Erhebung der sozialen Stellung der Frauen, so dass Historiker und Philosophen die höhere oder niedere Stufe, auf welcher die Frauen standen, als das sicherste und untrüglichste Merkmal für den Grad der Zivilisation eines Volkes oder Zeitalters hinzustellen pflegen. Jede fortschrittliche Periode in der Geschichte der Menschheit bringt die Stellung der Frauen der Gleichheit mit den Männern näher, und wenn dies an und für sich betrachtet auch noch nicht beweist, dass die Assimilation bis zur vollkommenen Gleichstellung gehen muss, so lässt es doch unstreitig günstige Schlüsse dafür zu.

Gandhi's mother Putlibai and his wife Kasturba greatly influenced his path.

  • The outstanding impression my mother has left on my memory is that of saintliness. She was deeply religious. She would not think of taking her meals without daily prayer. She would take the hardest of vows and keep them without flinching. Illness was no excuse for relaxing them.

  • Women’s marvellous power is lying dormant. If the women of Asia wake up, they will dazzle the world. My experiment in non-violence would be instantly successful if I could secure women’s help.

  • I believe that the situation of women today perhaps can be defined as being the ‘eternal feminine.’ I am seeking the eternal feminine. Everything that is accidental and animated by situations and circumstances cannot change the eternal, which is essential. In this respect, I expressed what I seek and desire in the document about the dignity of women.

  • From my point of view, it's been extremely important to me to interact with a woman [his partner Riane Eisler who is able to love me as I'm able to love her on some basis of equality. Rather than have the old superior-inferior relationship, which many men and women have. Women are making this breakthrough and they've begun to see out beyond this cage that every male is still encased in, almost without exception.

Conclusion

 

Future outlook

  • This struggle of the human female toward sex equality will end in a new sex order, with the female as superior. The modern woman, who anticipates in merely superficial phenomena the advancement of her sex, is but a surface symptom of something deeper and more potent fermenting in the bosom of the race.
    It is not in the shallow physical imitation of men that women will assert first their equality and later their superiority, but in the awakening of the intellect of women. […]
    Through countless generations, from the very beginning, the social subservience of women resulted naturally in the partial atrophy or at least the hereditary suspension of mental qualities which we now know the female sex to be endowed with no less than men. But the female mind has demonstrated a capacity for all the mental acquirements and achievements of men, and as generations ensue that capacity will be expanded; the average woman will be as well educated as the average man, and then better educated, for the dormant faculties of her brain will be stimulated to an activity that will be all the more intense and powerful because of centuries of repose. Women will ignore precedent and startle civilization with their progress.

  • If you do not allow one to become a lion, he will become a fox. Women are a power, only now it is more evil because man oppresses woman; she is the fox, but when she is no longer oppressed, she will be the lion.

  • In India the mother is the center of the family and our highest ideal. She is to us the representative of God, as God is the mother of the universe. It was a female sage who first found the unity of God, and laid down this doctrine in one of the first hymns of the Vedas. Our God is both personal and absolute, the absolute is male, the personal, female. And thus it comes that we now say: ‘The first manifestation of God is the hand that rocks the cradle’.

The end of the age of reason

  • The earth is conscious. Nature is conscious. All life is conscious. […] In keeping with the paradox of the Divine, our Enlightenment [the age of reason] turned the light off. The Enlightenment that began in the late 1400s, in fact, was the beginning of turning off our inner light. We began to take a reason[able] look at the universe. Everything had to have a reason. The end result was: everything that couldn't reason ceased to have value. Trees can't reason. Nature can't reason. Women don't reason very well. They are very emotional. […]
    Intuition, the mystical sense, started to frighten people. […] Women don't trust their own mystical sense. They deny their own. [They]'ve bought into the system that reason governs the soul.

Recipe of fulfillment: Spirit ∞ love, Yang ∞ Yin

  • The woman is increasingly aware that love alone can give her full stature, just as the man begins to discern that spirit alone can endow his life with its highest meaning. Fundamentally, therefore, both seek a psychic relation to the other, because love needs the spirit, and the spirit love, for their fulfillment.

The lobsided Christian god-image resulted in a tragic fate of Christian women.

  • Because the Christian god-image is exclusively masculine, she can become one with God only through alienation from her own feminine nature. This, however, is nothing other than a spiritual possession, a denial of her feminine consciousness and her physical reality.

Women’s ability to contribute to peace

  • For millennia women have dedicated themselves almost exclusively to the task of nurturing, protecting and caring for the young and the old, striving for the conditions of peace that favour life as a whole. To this can be added the fact that, to the best of my knowledge, no war was ever started by women. But it is women and children who have always suffered most in situations of conflict. Now that we are gaining control of the primary historical role imposed on us of sustaining life in the context of the home and family, it is time to apply in the arena of the world the wisdom and experience thus gained in activities of peace over so many thousands of years. The education and empowerment of women throughout the world cannot fail to result in a more caring, tolerant, just and peaceful life for all. Aung San Suu Kyi (*1945) Burmese opposition politician (2012-2016), house arrested for 15 of 21 years (1989-2010) for her opposition to the military junta’s seizure, leader of Myanmar's democracy movement, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1991, open­ing keynote via a videotape, NGO Forum on Women at the Fourth UN World Conference on Women Bei­jing, China, 1995; cited in: Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. jeanbolen.com, US American Jungian analyst, proactive women researcher and supporter, crone, spiritual teacher, author, The Millionth Circle.

Conference Mobilizes Faith Groups to Advance Women's Rights, 28. June 2013

  • The Elders are a group of distinguished leaders from around the world geographically, and we include in our group, people who are Muslim, Hindus, Protestant of the Catholic and Protestant faith. We’ve spent a year or two trying to analyze the basic causes of violations of women’s rights, and one of the conclusions we have reached is that it’s the practice of religion that is the basic cause of the foundation of excuse for the other abuses; where women are deprived of an equal right to serve God. And where they are treated as subordinates or inferior people. And this example set by religions leaders gives an excuse to other dominant males to persecute, or abuse, or deprive women of their justifiable rights. This is a question that has never been publicly discussed before, and The Elders help this will arouse and interest in the world in trying to seek corrections made to religions themselves to set an example for full rights for all women.

Women vs. domination politics

Fraternity vs. patriarchy

  • I do think that women could make politics irrelevant by some kind of spontaneous cooperative action, the like of which we have never seen, which is so far from people’s ideas of state structure and viable social structure that it seems to them like total anarchy but what it really represents is very subtle forms of inter-relation which does not follow a hierachical pattern which is fundamentally patriachal. The opposite to patriarchy is not matriarchy but fraternity. I think it is women who are going to have to break the spiral of power and find the trick of cooperation.

Gilligan's insight of gendered splits

  • If you think of the splits – reason/emotion, mind/body, self/relationships – you know how they’re gendered.
    Mind, self, thought, is gendered masculine and elevated.
    Emotion, relationships and body are gendered feminine and like women idealized and devalued. […]
There’s a convergence now of findings from developmental psychology and neuroscience that puts in place a very different story about us as humans and says that when these splits occur, they are signs of injury or trauma.

  • There is one thing women can never disconnect from, and that is the love of their children and grandchildren and their yearning for a sense of community. This kind of communion is naturally inherent in the blood mysteries, for every woman in the world is primed to experience these cycles. If mothers want to create healthy futures for their children, they can do this only by celebrating, with their sisters, what it is to be a woman, beginning with their own lives. It is time to remove menarche, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause from the realms of medical pathology and return them to the sacred events in a woman’s life that they are, revered through rites of passage and sacred ritual.

True love is the true authority of a man over a woman.

  • To be a fully integrated male, a man has to assimilate in his body the divine female energies that woman can only release to him through right physical lovemaking. But the man has to be man enough. He has to be able to love her enough; that is, love her selflessly during the actual act of lovemaking. He has to be able to absorb and express sufficient love in his body to reach the highest part of her, and love enough to extract the divine energies from her deepest center. To be able to love in this way is his only true authority over woman. Barry Long (1926-2003) Australian spiritual teacher, tantra teacher, press secretary, editor, writer, source unknown

Quotes by Mirra Alfassa

The next step in human evolution is dignified gender parity.

  • [U]ntil the manifestation of a new conception and consciousness compels Nature to create a new species which would no longer have to yield to the necessity of animal procreation and thus be under the obligation of dividing into two complementary sexes, the best that can be done for the progress of the present human race is to treat both sexes on a footing of perfect equality, to give them the same education and training and to teach them to find, through a constant contact with a Divine Reality that is above all sexual differentiation, the source of all possibilities and harmonies. Mirra Alfassa [The Mother] (1878-1973) French Turkish Egyptian mystic, spiritual partner of the Indian philosopher and yogi, Sri Aurobindo, founder of the project Auroville in India, The Problem of Woman, published in Bulletin, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, April 1955

 

  • It is certain that purely masculine politics have given proof of incapacity; they have foundered too often in their search of strictly personal interest, and in their arbitrary and violent action. Doubtless women's politics would bring about a tendency to disinterestedness and more humanitarian solutions. But unfortunately, in their present state, women in general are creatures of passion and enthusiastic partisanship; they lack the reasoning calm that purely intellectual activity gives; the latter is undoubtedly dangerous because hard and cold and pitiless, nevertheless it is unquestionably useful to master the overflow of sentiment which cannot hold a predominant place in the ruling of collective interests. Mirra Alfassa [The Mother] (1878-1973) French Turkish Egyptian mystic, spiritual partner of the Indian philosopher and yogi, Sri Aurobindo, founder of the project Auroville in India, The Problem of Woman, published in Bulletin, Sri Aurobindo Ashram, Pondicherry, April 1955

 

 

  • Beyond the manifestation there is no [gender] differentiation [in the Creator], that is, there are not two, there is only one. It was at the moment of creation that it became two. But before that it was one, and there was no difference; as it was one, it was only one. There were countless possibilities, but it was one, in fact it was one, and it was only in the creation that it became two. The differentiation is not something eternal and co-existent. It is for the creation, and in fact for the creation of this world only. Mirra Alfassa [The Mother] (1878-1973) French Turkish Egyptian mystic, spiritual partner of the Indian philosopher and yogi, Sri Aurobindo, founder of the project Auroville in India, Talk based upon article The Problem of Woman, pg. 157, 18. May 1955

 

  • There is a popular adage there which says: "Property governed by woman means prosperous property." But in the Occident Semitic thought allied to Roman legislation has [...] influenced customs too deeply for women to have the opportunity of showing their capacity for organisation. Mirra Alfassa [The Mother] (1878-1973) French Turkish Egyptian mystic, spiritual partner of the Indian philosopher and yogi, Sri Aurobindo, founder of the project Auroville in India, Essays, letters, etc., Part Six, S. 143, written in Japan (1916-1920)

 

  • Woman, by the very fact of her passivity, having more easily than man the intuition of the Supreme Power at work in the world, is more often, more naturally humble.
    But to base the fact of this humility on need is erroneous. Woman needs man not more than man needs woman; or rather, more exactly, man and woman have an equal need of one another. […]
    [T]o say that women should be humble because it is thus that they please men, is also erroneous. It would lead one to think that woman has been put on earth only for the purpose of giving pleasure to man – which is absurd. Mirra Alfassa [The Mother] (1878-1973) French Turkish Egyptian mystic, spiritual partner of the Indian philosopher and yogi, Sri Aurobindo, founder of the project Auroville in India, Essays, letters, etc., Part Six, S. 147, written in Japan (1916-1920)

    I commend Phyllis Freud to you. […] The footnotes are now bigger than the essay. He really said this.
    It also made me understand why Freud was so much more popular here [in the United States] than in Europe.

  • Women are certainly capable of learning, but they are not made for the higher forms of science, such as philosophy and certain types of artistic creativity; these require a universal ingredient. Women may hit on good ideas and they may, of course, have taste and elegance, but they lack the talent for the ideal. Men and women differ much as animals and plants do. Men with animals correspond, as do women and plants, for women develop more placidly and always retain the formless indeterminate unity of feeling and sentiment. When women have control over the government, the state is plunged into peril, for they do not act according to the standards of universality, but are influenced by random inclinations and opinions.

He disliked nearly all women, and especially the young and pretty ones. It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy.

Oldest female agent of the consciousness evolution – Barbara Marx Hubbard

US American Barbara Marx Hubbard (*1929) is a political scientist, a noted futurist, champion and agent of the consciousness evolution, the co-founder and president of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution since 1990. As a spiritual teacher, visionary public keynote speaker and author of six books, she has become internationally known. At age 15, in 1945, when the atomic bombs were dropped on Japan, she was struck and started to ask deep questions.

 

A pioneering female soul awakening for human evolution while raising five children in the 50ties, Marx Hubbard fell into a depression feeling a failure to the The American Dream. Her Freudian analyst dismissed her quest for liberation accompanied by the inner urge to communicate on a grander scale as 'a neurotic expression of a depressed housewife'.
Reading books and subsequently mailing out a series of 1,000 letters to authors, thought leaders, priests, the Pope, presidents, she found that many avoided her questions. Raised within a materialistic, secular, agnostic frame, she found her father tyrannical, her parents removed, her husband patriarchal, her lovers dominating. She didn't dare to tell her husband the truth about herself. They got divorced eventually.

 


Hierarchy of needs comprising 6 stages

Due to a lack of living female role models to whom she could relate Marx Hubbard skipped the phase of feminism [LoC 330] altogether. So eventually she turned within.
Her male inspirators Jesus, St. Paul, Sri Aurobindo, Teilhard de Chardin, Abraham Maslow and Buckminster Fuller guided her to enter the spiritual path.

Without the transcendent and the transpersonal, we get sick, violent, and nihilistic, or else hopeless and apathetic. Abraham Maslow [LoC 475] (1908-1970) US American transpersonal psychologist, happiness researcher

Hubbard's first teacher Dr. Jonas Salk called her out as an "evolutionary mutant" and encouraged her to embrace her vocation to become a visionary moving into the public arena.

Women in US politics:

Educator and author Shirley Chisholm [LoC 400] (1924-2005) was the first black US American Democratic Congresswoman, New York (1969-1983) and the first major-party black US presidential candidate. She was supported by grassroots feminists and blacks, less by assignated leaders. Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem ran as Chisholm's delegates in New York.

In 1984 she ran unsuccessfully for the US vice presidency as a female candidate for the Democratic Party. Her vision was to establish a Peace Room in the White House, just as sophisticated as the existing War Room. In front of the audience of the Democratic National Convention, she gave a speech solely to the universe. Nobody took her seriously, neither as a person nor as a viable candidate in the 80ties.4

 

Marx Hubbard sees the current worldwide crisis as the birth of humanity into nonlinear connectivity where people feel inspired to act as a cocreating species. So, she is calling forth December 22, 2012 as the day of emergence [LoC 600] to convergence within a World Shift Room.

  • A baby will die if it stays in the womb when it is time for it to be born. It is outgrowing the womb. [German] Space scientist Krafft Ehricke told the story of the fetal scientist in the womb in the seventh month. The scientist is predicting that
    • by the eighth month there will be over crowding [and overcrowding],
    • by the ninth month there will be deadly pollution,
    • and by the tenth month, the organism will be dead.
Of course the fetal scientist does not know about birth. He has never seen it before. Audio interview with Barbara Marx Hubbard, part 2 Conscious Evolution and the Creative Advance, minute 20:35, posted 21. November 2011 [*]5

 

  • We haven't been through a crisis of this global order consciously ever before. And there are no experts who can say how you do it. The people at the top of the pyramid structures like president [best LoC 460] of the US or head of organized religion [max. LoC 570] are actually structurally impotent to do it. Who are we looking to? It turns out to be the innovators and creators and people motivated toward this emergence [LoC 600] within themselves and the world. I created a word for this type of person.

Memetic gaps:

In the new millennia cherished memes are "fading rapidly."

  • In this generation we have seen the horror of deadly memes or worldviews such as Nazism, Fascism, Communism, Ethnic Cleansing, Mutually Assured Destruction (M.A.D.), and others. These complex sets of ideas or memetic codes have captured the minds of millions and have led to imprisonment, mass murder, environmental destruction, species extinction, – unimaginable suffering in the bloodiest century in the history of the world. Yet when the very people who performed these horrors are no longer under the domination of the memetic code that activated them to destructive behavior, like the German people, or Rwandans, it seems hardly believable to them that they could have done it. When memes lose their reality they lose their power. Yet while they are believed they can destroy whole peoples, and eventually the life support system of planet Earth.

Upgrading the value systems, encompassing empathy

1. Money or wealth failed to bring inner peace.
2. Modern education (science) failed to bring inner peace.
3. Technology also failed to bring inner peace.

September 2009

  • The idea of the materialistic Accidental Universe, mindless, purposeless and directionless, is losing credibility among some scientists, complexity theorists, and cosmologists as the exquisite fine-tuning of the design of evolution toward ever greater complexity is revealed. Theologians and scientists are joining in a quest to understand the process of evolution as a progressive, sacred expression without recourse to an external deity.
    Inevitable progress through technology is also losing its credibility. It is no longer possible to believe that increased technological knowledge in our current state of self-centered consciousness will inevitably lead to the good. The explosion of the atomic bombs and nuclear proliferation, deepening poverty and disease, plus the current environmental threats to our life support system and all species on Earth, have destroyed the idea of inevitable progress through increasing technological knowledge in the current economic system.

Shifting capitalism:

The end of unlimited growth in saturated rich countries has arrived.

  • It is no longer possible to believe that global capitalism [LoC 340] and unlimited economic growth as it is now structured will lead to a just economy and global health, as the gap between the rich and poor widens, the mass media is under corporate control in many areas, and our very life support system and countless species are threatened with extinction.

Upgrading democracy:

Interconnecting the co-creative empathic potential worldwide via the Internet

  • Democracy in its current form has shown its flaws, and appears to lock its leaders in forced opposition, removed from the will of the people, leading to the congealing of power in the hands of the few at the expense of the many, captured by financial interests, and when imposed on others leads to violence, insurgency and chaos.

  • Right now we have oppositional democracy. We're stuck. What I am seeing is synergistic democracy, but it is not going to be by changing the presidency of the US.

On the biology of gender, the biological differences between men and women
ChapterChapter titles
Topics
Description
OneThe differencesThe truth is that virtually every professional scientist and researcher into the subject has concluded that the brains of men and women are different. There has seldom been a greater divide between what intelligent, enlightened opinion presumes — that men and women have the same brain — and what science knows — that they do not.
TwoThe birth of differenceIt is not until six or seven weeks after conception that the unborn baby 'makes up its mind', and the brain begins to take on a male or a female pattern. What happens at that critical stage in the darkness of the womb, will determine the structure and organisation of the brain: and that, in turn, will decide the very nature of the mind. It is [...] a story largely unknown, but now, at last, beginning to unfold in its entirety.
ThreeSex in the brainWhat we are, how we behave, how we think and feel, is governed not by the heart, but by the brain. The brain itself is influenced, in structure and operation, by the hormones. Given that brain structure and hormones are different in men and women men and women will behave in different ways. Understanding the exact relationship between brain structure, hormones and behavior would take us a long way to discovering the answer to some of humanity's most exasperating riddles.
FourChildhood differencesEach sex has a mind of its own at birth. Innate differences in brain structure mean that from infancy and through childhood, the male and female paths increasingly diverge. Biology – accentuated by social attitudes which may themselves have a biological base – makes the destiny of men and women different, gives them different priorities, ambitions, and behavior.
FiveThe brains come of ageWith the onset of puberty, the human mechanism is past the blueprint stage. Now the hormones take on their second role, fuelling, powering, and informing the brain and our subsequent behavior as human beings. [...] Before puberty, in spite of all those infant sexual differences we have already documented, girls and boys have the same kinds of hormones circulating at the same levels in their bodies. Once the hormone levels increase, however, the changes are dramatic.
In girls, at around the age of eight the level of female hormones begins to rise. [...]
The hormones of boys come on stream about two years later than girls.
SixThe ability gapJust as puberty dramatically sorts out the girls from the boys in their behavior and social attitudes, the hormones play their part in accentuating differences in mental abilities and aptitudes. The chemistry largely dictates the structure of our brains and the disposition of the functions in it. It should not be surprising, then, to find that differences in the organ of thought affect the things we choose to think about, and how well we apply our minds to them.
SevenHearts and mindsPhysically, men and women are generally attracted to each other because of their differences. Ask any group of men from any culture to assess the attractiveness of a female, and they will tend to opt for the figure which curves where they are flat, is soft where they are strong and – though this may be a matter for aesthetic as much as scientific debate – swells where they are narrow. The same, in reverse, is true of women, who will tend to express a preference for men with broad shoulders tapering to narrow hips. [...] Yet in every other respect, we expect the sexes to be attracted to each other because of their similarities. Any computer-dating questionnaire will try to match intellectual like with like.
EightLike mindsThe hormonal theory [of sexual deviancy] would explain why sexual deviancy is so much more common in men. Men have to go through a hormonal process to change their brains from the natural female pattern present in all of us, whatever our eventual sex, from the first weeks of our life in the womb; they have to be soaked in extra male hormone and restructured – so in the process of reconstruction the chance of mistakes is much greater than in the female, who doesn't need any reconstruction of her brain.
NineThe marriage of two mindsOur new knowledge of what makes us tick, and tick to different rhythms, is not of itself going to revolutionise the complex design of marriage – we will present no new marital blueprint. We believe that much of the stress in this most vital of relationships stems from the misconception that men and women are essentially the same people. The contradiction between this assumption and the facts can lead to exasperation, bitterness and recrimination.
TenWhy mothers are not fathersNothing is said to bring men and women closer to each other than the shared experience of parenthood. The truth more often is that, because of the different perspective each partner brings to it, few things more dramatically define the difference between men and women. However disappointing the fact may be to a devoted father, there is something unique in the relationship between a mother and a baby. No known society replaces the mother as a primary provider of care.
ElevenMinds at workWe live in a world where we are no longer surprised to find a female prime minister, a female judge, a female rabbi or a female pilot. But there are still remarkably few women in top jobs, considering the large increase in the number of well-educated women. That is likely to remain the case.
TwelveBias at work The Wall Street Journal once spoke of female careers being 'sabotaged by motherhood', demonstrating, in a few words, several misconceptions. First, many women do not see their retirement from the world of paid work as a disaster – home and family are a fulfilling and rewarding occupation. Secondly, motherhood is a career in itself, as any single-parent journalist will soon find out; and finally, even the most reluctant mothers, holding their new-born baby, find the notion that they have been somehow 'sabotaged' simply does not arise. If there is any question of sabotage, it is women who sabotage their own self-esteem. Too often they have defined career success and achievement in male terms.

Male lust is blind. High testosterone acting on the male brain increases the narrow focus and "single-minded" approach to the "object" of his desires. After orgasm, testosterone levels subside and the male brain starts to receive a wider input of information without the "narrowing" effect of larger amounts of testosterone present during arousal.  Dr. Anne Moir, US American geneticist, David Jessel, US American journalist, Brain Sex.The Real Difference Between Men and Women, first published by Michael Joseph, division of Penguin, 1989, Delta, 1.

Ten core values for evolving women

Core virtuous behaviors embodied by maturing women
Dedicated to the creative potential of the relationship of maturing men and women
Elizabeth Debold, Ed.D. suggests women to embody the following core values:
༺༻Mature·behaviorLegend
1.Holding an evolutionary perspectiveConsciously evolving woman acknowledges her biological, psychological, and social conditioning and draws on her true self devoted to the process of human evolution.
2.Trusting in lifeWitnessing woman keeps releasing control urges. She incorporates to the best of her abilities spirit, undefended innocence, dignity.
3.Taking responsibility for evolutionWoman is aware of interconnectedness and cares to evolve in consciousness.
4.Realizing unity with other womenConsciously evolving woman is trustingly, transparently, and passionately bonding with her sisters, taking responsibility of her programmed urge to compete with others and outshining it.
5.Being emotionally rationalConscious woman is aware of her survival impulses, developing emotional maturity by is releasing culturally programmed fears and desires.
6.Standing autonomously and not waveringConsciously evolving woman abstains from manipulative games and is cultivating simple, gentle-straight radical sovereignty in her relationships.
7.Relinquishing sexual powerConscious woman refrains from seduction to win over. Her sexual relationships become profoundly intimate and straightforward.
8.Leading by exampleWilling to pioneer leadership conscious woman remains vulnerable and authentic, following her inner guidance transparently and humbly.
9.Being trustworthyWoman devoted to a higher purpose remains honest and authentic when challenged.
10.Rejecting victimhoodResponsible woman is not a victim. She cocreated history with men.

Fertility and intelligence


Universal factors affecting fertility rates regardless of race, religion or political leaning
Life issues of womenRemark
1.Female age at marriageThe younger the female at first marriage, the higher the rate of fertility and vice versa.
2.Female literacy and educationThe higher the female education, the lower the fertility rate.
3.Female mortality rates in childbirth and infant/child mortalityThe higher the rates of death in childbirth, and crude infant or child deaths, the higher the crude fertility rate.
4.Female economic participationThe greater the female participation in any form of economic activity or capacity, the lower their fertility.
5.Access to contraception

The mad and belligerent Sultan and the eloqent Lady Sheherazade

A maddened sultan is broken to pieces due to the betrayal by his wife.
The fragmented token man kills her and weds maidens of the country night after night and sleighs them in the morning.
Doing so the bloodthirsty leader is bleeding out and decimating the female side of his country.

 


Sultan Schahrayar pardons Scheherazade

Sheherazade offers herself to be the next bride of death. And she takes her sister along as a witness and as a safe guard. At dawn Sheherazade starts to tell one of 1001 stories about other people who had been betrayed. However, she does not finish telling them.
Doing so she risks her life, her sister's life, the lives of so many other budding women in the country. Night after night it is to be seen if the king decides to keep on listening to her unfinished story.
After 1001 nights they had two children and the king was healed from belligerence. He had become sane again, and the couple married in love.

 

  • The Sultan was blessed with wisdom and grace and could finally surrender, drop the sword of doom [...] and transcend his ingrown belligerence.
  • Sheherazade's wit, courage, patience and love had succeeded in weaving the broken king back into his true self.

 

* * *

 

  • Sheherazade represents the mythological feminine, reflecting Isis who recombined her fragmented mate Osiris.
  • She insisted on the importance of sisterhood (and informed witnesses).
  • She is one of the first feminists aware of the web of ancient stories.
  • She insisted on facing off with the Sultan who was wearing the sword of doom.
  • She looked like she would be the queen of death, whereas she became the victorious queen of life.
  • She was so feminine that she saved the lives of many of her sisters and the masculine of itself (which sometimes is needed).

The name Sheherazade means "born of noble people".
The Sheherazade aspect is innate in each woman and each man as the womb to give birth to itself.
As an ardent student of the mysteries Sheherazade was a great storyteller and weaver.
As an erudite woman she owned 1001 books reflecting the background to the 1001 Arabian Nights.


Note: The story plays in ancient Iraq. In modern Iraq the "Arabian Nights" have been banned and burned for being evil (i.e. pornographic).
