Principle Three: Male-Female Energies
All creation is produced by wavelengths, and there are wavelengths within wavelengths within wavelengths. All dualities are created by reflections and distortions of positive and negative energies that form the one wavelength. Reflections of positive and negative are good and evil, pleasure and pain, joy and misery, hot and cold, light and dark, and most important for this treatise, male and female.
The dividing point of all these dualities is Purpose. As the energy of the wavelength swings from positive to negative, the unifying energy of Purpose is sensed, and thus the energy of duality is recharged and sent on its way to expand or contract the form.
It may seem strange to say that good and evil is a reflection or correspondence to positive and negative, but an important point to remember is that all dualities correspond to these two energies. Good is a distorted reflection of positive and evil is a distorted reflection and misuse of negative. Good and evil repeats itself in history like a great wavelength animated by Purpose; and that which is good in one era can be evil in the next.
Male and female bodies are only symbols of male and female energies. The male energy is a correspondence to positive energy, or the Father aspect. The female energy corresponds to negative — negative polarity — not negative bad — or the Mother aspect.
All things that are manifest are created by male and female energies and all these energies are united in form through the process of marriage, or union.
All things in the universe are either positively or negatively charged. That is, they are influenced more by either the positive and negative energy, or they are either male or female. This includes everything from a sub-atomic particle to an atom, a human being, a planet, or a galaxy. Everything is either male or female. There is nothing that is 100% neutral except for the energy of Purpose.
Even though it is true that all forms are polarized in either male or female energy, it is also a fact that each form is composed of wavelengths with much interplay between both energies. Within the makeup of a human male for instance, there will be many female energies at work, and so will the female deal with numerous male energies within her.
Marriage, too, is much more than the joining of two physical persons; marriage is a universal order — a bonding relationship. It unites the male and female energies into a united whole. All male and female energies seek this marriage.
It is interesting to study the marriage of atoms. In observing them, we must realize that every form, whether it be an atom or planet, possesses a consciousness and life peculiar to itself and is either positively or negatively charged. In other words, it is either male or female. The chemist calls the male atom a positive particle and the female atom a negative one. Within the atom we also have the positive or male nucleus, and the negative or female electron shells which are married to the nucleus to produce something greater than themselves — a whole atom. In the case of the marriage of the female electrons to the male protons in the nucleus, the ratio is always one to one. If there are seven protons, for example, as in the case of nitrogen, they are balanced off with the energies of seven orbiting female electrons. These sub-atomic particles, which are the building blocks of all form, never deviate from this one-to-one ratio.
As we study the atomic and molecular world, we do so with purpose, for we seek truth in the ancient truism “as above, so below; as below, so above.” In other words, by studying the atomic worlds (the microcosmic) and the higher worlds of planets, stars, etc. (the macrocosmic) and corresponding their relationships with humanity, we can ascertain correct principles whereby stability may be produced. At present, social scientists tell us that three out four of our marriages are unhappy, or unstable. If we can find the secret of how tiny atoms achieve stability, we can then take those principles and apply them to humanity.
In addition to the electrons and protons, the atoms are also made of a third major particle called the neutron. This particle is relatively neutral and there are usually one or more neutrons for each proton in the atom. There seems to be no set rule governing the number of neutrons in each atom. Most of the lower elements have an approximate ratio of one neutron for each proton, but some of the heavier elements have a ratio of approximately 1.5 neutrons for each proton. In each atom there are always a certain number of neutrons that produces the most stable atom. In carbon, for instance, there are usually six protons, six electrons, and six neutrons. This is commonly called carbon 12. This is the most stable carbon atom. In nature there are also trace amounts of carbon with seven and eight neutrons. Carbon, with eight neutrons, is called carbon 14 and is unstable and is radioactive, and tends to break down to a more stable element.
To create balance, the proton (male energy) then has a marriage relationship with two particles: the female electron and the neutral neutron.
The neutrons have a balance of positive and negative particles, making it neutral. However, this is only a relative neutrality, for even though all life forms are seeking balance, or neutrality, none of them are exactly neutral. Anything that has form is either male or female, but sometimes the energy difference is very slight. The neutrons are slightly female. This evidenced in nuclear physics by the fact that neutrons will tend to throw off an electron (female energy) before they will emit a positron (male energy).
It is interesting to note that other galaxies in the universe are thought to be composed of anti-matter where all male-female relationships are completely reversed. One half of all matter is likely to be composed of such, creating stability for all form in the universe.
An interesting principle to contemplate is that all male and female energies in the universe are seeking stability, or neutrality. In other words, they seek to return to the energy of Purpose. The prodigal son of form is seeking to return to his father. This stability, or return, is always reached through marriage. Thus, marriage is a universal principle used to unite all male and female energies.
We have been talking about atoms in the microcosm, but there are also greater atoms in the macrocosm. Our Earth, with one moon, is like a great hydrogen atom, but the next true atomic correspondence is the Sun, with the planets circling it. On an even greater scale, the galaxies, which are composed of billions of stars, correspond to electrons and positrons, and the universe we live in is like a giant proton.
The sexual center is the only center with only one polarity in a body. The male body has one polarity and the female the other. To the male his polarity feels positive and to the female her polarity feels positive even though they are opposite. When they unite sexually they can each sense a completeness that occurs when both polarities are sensed simultaneously. In this sense they are no longer two, but “one flesh.”
Both the male and female have both positive and negative polarities in the other centers and do not have such a driving need to unite with the opposite sex to complete themselves. Nevertheless, when the other centers of the male and female share a similar vibration there is a non possessive transfer of energy that creates high states of joy in both of them.
To create balance, we must understand the purpose of the two energies. The male, or the positive energy, is radiant, action, or sending energy. The female, or negative energy (not negative as in bad, but negative as in electricity) is magnetic, attractive, and receiving.
This is most easily demonstrated in the physical bodies of the two sexes. It helps here if we remember that all physical creations are symbolic of spiritual energies as well as their outward manifestation.
During sex, the male body is the sender of the seed or sperm. With each orgasm many sperm are sent. The male genitals are indisputably the sending unit. The female body, on the other hand, is the receiver of the sperm or seed and the female genitals definitely receive the male’s. Only one out of millions of sperm is finally accepted for impregnation, but, when it is, the growth of the baby or new creation is an automatic process. The materials for the growth of the body are drawn to the woman by the power of magnetism, which is an aspect of female energy.
By taking what we know to be true here, we can correspond it to other areas and discover much truth.
If the male is physically the sender and the female the receiver, then this will correspond to male and female energy on other levels. We can say then, that as energy units the male, or positive energy, is the sender, and the female, or negative energy, is the receiver.
There are only two observable energies in the Universe. They are called by many names, but each of them is either male or female. For instance, the two energies that sustain the Universe are radiance and magnetism. The Sun and the stars give off light, heat and radiation that give life to and sustain all things. This is an important function but no more important than magnetism that gives form to all things and holds all creation together. Magnetic energy, such as gravity, is invisible, but its effect is just as powerful as radiance, which is visible. There would be no form to give off radiation without magnetism to create the form.
Because the female energy, or magnetism, is invisible, its full importance has often been overlooked. One of the reasons the male energy has dominated in recent times is that it is a more visible energy. Even females are deceived into thinking that radiant energy is more desirable than magnetic because the use of this energy is easier to perceive.
The feminine energy is indeed a mystique, or mystery, because its effects can be seen, but the operation of the energy cannot.
Another aspect of male-female energy is involution and evolution. Involution is the force that pulls spirit into matter, or the world of experience. Evolution is the force that pushes matter back up to the realm of spirit after a round of experience is over. Involution is female energy and evolution is male. In the early days of man, when his prime goal was experience, the female energy dominated. Desire, emotion, and feeling are also female energies and always push us toward experience. The biblical Eve dominated Adam with her desire for the forbidden experience. The yielding of Adam to Eve was symbolic of the time of involution, or the dominance of female energy.
Mind is a male energy which, in the cycle of evolution, is meant to dominate the female emotions in us all, intelligently direct us to avoid painful experiences and lead us from matter to spirit.
In ancient times there was a shift in the polarization of humankind from involution to evolution. Men no longer worshipped the goddesses, but male gods. Because mind is beginning to dominate the world, and is leading us toward Spirit, the male energy is naturally dominant.
The heavy male dominance is being counterbalanced, however, by the opening of the next faculty in man, which is the intuition, which is also feminine. But even when the intuition rules over mind, the male energy will still be slightly dominant because we are on the path of evolution, which is male and the overall dominating energy during the return to our Source.
In all male-female relationships the male unit must be mostly radiant and sending, and the female must be polarized as magnetic and receiving, or the energy of the relationship will be out of balance. This is especially true in the human kingdom, for humanity seems to be the only kingdom in nature where it is even possible for the sexes to not play their appropriate roles. In the animal and plant kingdoms the male and female accept their appropriate roles without rebellion.
Both sexes are equal in value. One cannot exist without the other. Just like there is no such thing as one hand clapping, there is no creation with just one sex. They must work together.
Now we must approach the grand purpose of our cyclic movement in and out of the sexes.
We must remember that the female is magnetic and receiving. The male is radiant and sending. Even though we are all polarized in one or the other sex in their lifetime, depending on the body we find ourselves in there are various male and female cycles.
