Question: If what has come down to us from written and oral sources is perceived literally and not in the language of branches, then we perceive the masculine and feminine incorrectly, not as a component in a person, but as gender?
But we were born men and women. Does male and female egoism exist in each of us?
Answer: No, it does not exist. Any person spiritually consists of a male and a female part. There is no privilege of one over the other. It is their right combination that gives us perfection.
There are masculine and feminine qualities in every person and they must be balanced regardless of gender. Our physiology has nothing to do with spirituality.
