In my Master of Chaplaincy Program covering 66 universal laws, law 32 is on Law of Gender. I thought this
insightful law might be helpful in this world and the next.
The Universal Law of Gender has three main points. The first is that everything living in creation has gender, an ebb and flow, a yin/yang effect working together. The second interesting point is that each gender reflects both genders within itself. The third most fascinating point of all, is that all planes of existence including mental, physical and spiritual reflect both male and female aspects.
What this universal law is saying is that one must consider all three aspects of ourselves in finding balance in this world. We are not only physical beings. We are not only mental or emotional beings. We are not only spiritual beings. We are not only spiritual beings walking around in a physical body. That is not entirely accurate. Why?
We now have duality within our brains. We are at the mercy of our left brain, right brain dance of reasoning. Sometimes the male dominated right brain, the yang side wins out, while later in that same day our female left side of our brains reasons back with more artistic and sympathetic responses.
Within our physical bodies we see our genders reflected. But we are not only one dimension; we are three. Technically, some systems say there are 12, 32, 64, or all the 365 “layers” back to God (some say “Source”). To simplify, I am saying our spiritual bodies extend all the way (dimensionally speaking) back to God, which technically, it does.
Our spiritual selves matter just as much as our mental and physical selves, or else we are living a crippled life. Even within our spiritual bodies, which surround us like a heavenly hug about 12-18 inches around us, are part of our human make up. Have you ever wondered why someone standing too close to you out in public makes you feel uncomfortable?
This spiritual aspect of ourselves not only reflects us, it reflects the Creator. This is the part of us that is made in the image and likeness of God. This spirituality has both Mother/Father aspects, nurturing and healing, and creative life generator. We did not come alive until God breathed life into us, animating us with his life-giving force.
People in Jesus’ day wondered about this, asking him in the resurrection, which wife would she be, who had seven husbands in life. The answer Jesus gave in Matthew 22:30: “in the resurrection, neither do men marry, nor are women given in marriage, but they are as angels in heaven … He is the God, not of the dead, but of the living.”
We are to be as angels, no gender, living with God.
