Question: What is the difference between the pleasure that a man experiences and a woman experiences in the state of the common integral mind, or is it the same?
Answer: Every person has his own pleasures because everyone has his own root and his bonding with others. They are strictly subjective. Therefore, it is impossible to say how men are different from women in their state of pleasure and fulfillment.
This difference can be explained in the image of what exists in our world. After all, there is a difference in how a man perceives our world and how a woman does. A man somehow is capable of feeling what another man experiences. However, he is unable to feel a woman’s experience. He cannot understand her because she has a completely different view of the world.
A man and a woman are two worlds. The same applies to spirituality. Being a male part in the spiritual world, it is impossible to imagine the experience of a woman’s part. You can attract and include her desires in yourself in order to fulfill them, however, not instead of her, but for her.
Question: However, shouldn’t it merge somewhere in the end?
Answer: In the end, it merges in complementing each other, in mutual bonding, but it is still a bonding of two opposites.
