Question: It turns out that the majority of people who are seriously studying human psychology are women. However, we talked about the fact that the leaders in integral circles should preferably be men.
Answer: The human community, the whole of civilization, and all nature in general are built on the fact that man prevails everywhere. In all actions he appears to be the stimulant, although the internal urge, as we know, comes from women. But a man announces it and realizes it, so to speak, although everything is also realized mainly through a woman.
So, I don’t think that we’ll arrive at a state where a large amount of women will be the lecturers or supervisors of the integral unity technique. I don’t see that in any, even in the most advanced, civilizations. Still, in this respect, a woman does have her limited potential. She acts in the widening, while man acts in growth—and these differences can’t be crossed out and there is no need to level them. On the contrary, it simply needs to be used.
