The seemingly inexhaustible conversation carried on across temporal and cultural borders about the “battle of the sexes” is actually based on a false premise, and that is that there is some sort of eternally destined conflict between men and women. Well, there is in as much as there may be a conflict between, say, a male dog and a female dog, or a boy cat and a girl cat. The point being: humans are animals, just like all other animals. The only difference is, humans are somewhat more clever and sophisticated than many other species of animals, and so tend to be more dangerous to themselves and others with whom they come in contact, particularly in regard to gender interactions.
Due to a kind of amnesia that we necessarily accept when we fuse with the bio-vehicle, we usually forget our true identity and assume that we are human (the body/mind organism) and thus the recipient of all the evolutionary genetic material that comes with being human. The amazing truth is, however, that we are not now, nor have we ever been humans. Those rare few who do manage to awaken to their true identity realize directly that they are not the body, nor the human personality, but are merely “living the human” in order to enjoy that unique experiential possibility (whether it seems currently enjoyable by conventional standards or not).
We are that which inhabits humans, and we do that in much the same way that we might get identified with a video game avatar we are playing through. While we are so identified, we seem to suffer the same fate, but when the game is over, we realize that we are not that character. That character is a fantasy. It was a game all along. In our ineffable play, we have inhabited millions of different critters, which we tweak along the way so that we can properly fuse with them. Humans are only one species out of countless that have momentarily beguiled us, to the point where we are inspired to meld with them in order to expand the universal knowledge base, and also to have something interesting to share in terms of stories and adventures when we rejoin our soul group after dipping into some aspect or other of creaturely life.
Being human does make for some great campfire tales, in a manner of speaking, and also allows us to explore certain manifestations that are foreign to our true nature. In that, it is very similar to the reason some people enjoy horror movies and such vicarious thrills that are not ordinarily a part of regular life. Indeed, material creations themselves are so opposite from our natural state as Spirit that we find them endlessly intriguing. For example, being harmonious and genderless ourselves, we find the typical human conflicts based on sexual polarities fascinating, and are moved to insert ourselves into the situation to get a closer look, so to speak. Nevertheless, it ultimately remains a “virtual reality”, since our true identity is timeless Spirit.
While we as immortal souls, or luminous beings, are temporarily occupying human hosts, we approach the adventure seriously, as if we really are those human characters, like actors believing they actually are the roles they are playing on the stage, just so that the experience seems real while it is unfolding. If we realized all along that it was just a game, it wouldn’t have the same impact or educational value, and so we voluntarily accept the amnesia.
Consequently, the issue is not so much about some conflict between sexes, but more accurately boils down to how much restraint we are willing to exert over the human host animal. Human animals are selfish and even violent by nature, but their behavior can be modified and controlled. The chronic friction, or battle, arises between our dual natures — human animal versus soul entity. For example, if we just sit back and let the human personality do its thing, then it will stay true to its animal nature, and boy humans will always be sniffing after various and multiple girl humans, regardless of any prior nominal state-sanctioned contractual arrangements (marriage certificates), just as you would expect from active animals.
However, if we bring to bear some of our innate soul power, we might elevate the animal activity to a higher standard, and benignly moderate its instinctual behavior, so that it can be “civilized”, and refrain from doing harm — killing other animals over animal issues for one good example — and so become tamed and learn how to behave. In that case, human animal nature is being overridden by our spiritual nature. What is considered “self-control” is actually the soul inside the human exercising its free will to reign in its host’s “natural” behavior.
The crisis of internal division that plagues most humans is due to the fact that they are asleep to their true identity, and so we develop popular concepts like “conscience” to account for that part of us that is somehow “moral”. In fact, just like any other animals, humans have no innate morality. It is only the soul occupier that has the higher capacity. Moreover, as much as the soul will attempt to impose its higher view on the animal, to that extent there may also be resistance — a pushing back from the critter, just like a recalcitrant pet that resists being trained.
This push/pull is the source of endless problems, and accounts for much of the stress and anxiety manifesting in human beings on this planet, which the pharmaceutical industries have attempted to ameliorate with drugs like Prozac, the human religions have attempted to resolve with myths of saviors and the imposition of “Divine commandments”, and political institutions have striven to overcome with various decrees, police forces, courts, and prisons.
On the other hand, when we say that the human individual is behaving as a mature, well-adjusted, and responsible adult, it just means that they have been well-trained and tamed by their occupier soul/light being. Through repetition, souls can train their human hosts to eliminate bad behaviors and favor good behaviors. In this way, human males and females can learn how to get along without conflict, resort to domineering roles, or physical/sexual exploitation and abuse.
This is also why it is important to begin the training while the animal is still young, in order to effectively teach it how to conduct itself. After all, it’s hard to “teach an old dog new tricks”, as the saying goes. However, the more one awakens to their true spiritual nature and power, the more they are able to affect positive changes while inhabiting the human host, such as eliminating the selfishness, greed, envy, hatred, arrogance, and ignorance that habitually characterize the untrained animal, and which create so much of the traditional conflict between the genders throughout this realm.
