The Sexes & Kundalini Yoga
Are men from Mars and Women from Venus? Or in fact are we more similar than we think? From a yogic perspective each soul chooses their very specific birth environment to learn particular lessons to fulfill their destiny. Yogis see the body, brain and in fact the subconscious of male and female as perfect opposites or polarities. However all of us are a different blend of feminine and masculine energy in different proportions within the same body . By understanding the differences in the male and female energies we can better relate to ourselves and also support and understand each other in relationships. Yogi Bhajan teaches us when we do not recognize and understand and appreciate these different needs, strengths and weakness miscommunication, misunderstanding and eventually difficulties occur.
Have a look at these characteristics and see what you identify with? Also note if you need to work more on one aspect to balance the male and female polarity within you? You will also note from the chart that we all need to develop emotional intelligence to move from trying to control others or blaming to taking responsibility and responding to the present moment. Move from looking for praise from others to self worth and from looking for security from our relationships, possessions, status to deep inner security.
