Card #252 – Fractured into Gender Stereotypes


Bring your masculine and feminine sides together to find your vision. From a neurological point of view, the highest creativity occurs when the right and left hemispheres work together.

Some people confuse androgyny (an intrapsychic orientation) with bisexuality (an interpersonal orientation) or hermaphrodism (being intersexed — an anatomical/genital anomaly).

Hermaphrodism, as June Singer uses the term, means the confusion of masculine and feminine, an immature pastiche of qualities typical of rock stars and rock star wannabes, costumed adolescents, and their admirers.

But androgyny is a deep intrapsychic orientation, an integration, a fusion (not a confusion) of your archetypal masculine and feminine aspects. The androgynous person has creative access to left and right hemispheres, to critical thinking and intuition.

From the Gnostic Gospel According to Thomas:

“Jesus said to them: When you make the two one, and when you make the inner as the outer and the outer as the inner and the above as the below, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male will not be male and the female [not] be female…then shall you enter [the Kingdom].”

For a quicker, more informal discussion, see Stop the Hottie! Here’s an excerpt:

Aristophanes, in Plato’s Symposium, says that before we incarnated in our present forms we were spherical beings containing both genders, but on this plane we are fractured into (usually) gender specific bodies. A painful and illusory consequence of this split is that we would seek some other, some Hottie perhaps, to complete us, to be our “better half.” But two halves don’t make a whole, they make a quarter. If you did, however, rediscover the inner wholeness you always had within, then you would be in a great place to have healthy, relationships without addictive, obsessed codependence.

The more imbalanced we are, the less we have integrated the masculine and feminine elements within ourselves, the more voraciously will we pursue them on the outside. But we can never regain our inner wholeness by seeking to import it from outside. If we are missing part of our inner wholeness, we become a hungry ghost forever trying to devour this missing inner ingredient in an addictive all-consuming and never satiated effort to find it in the outside world.
