Came across this intersting article today…..
Hmmm… agreed- >”Were the differences between the sexes to be abolished, human nature would become as flat-tasting as wilted vegetables.“
Men have long disparaged women for no better reason than that they simply aren’t men. And women, too, have long dismissed anything men say or do with the mere epithet: “Men!” We should be thankful for the differences in human nature.
Were the differences between the sexes to be abolished, human nature would become as flat-tasting as wilted vegetables.
Let us look at that expression of masculine contempt: “Bahfeminine intuition!” Women are often, in fact, intuitive. So also, though generally in other ways, are men. Women’s intuition finds expression most often through their insights into people. A wife may warn her husband, for instance, “That person you’ve been thinking of hiring isn’t a good choice.” “What makes you think so?” demands the husband. “You’ve met him only once.” She replies, “It’s just a feeling.” “Feeling” exclaims her husband impatiently. “Can’t you explain yourself reasonably?” And so the husband ignores her advice. A year later, the employee absconds with half the company’s funds. Reason asks, “How does this differ from that?”
In this analyzing process, it cuts itself off from awareness of life’s underlying oneness. Feeling, on the other hand, reaches out instinctively to embrace life. Feeling is therefore more conscious of the underlying oneness of all things.
Women, for this reason, are more often intuitive than men. Feeling is the abiding reality beneath the fluctuations of emotion. Intelligence, similarly, is the abiding reality beneath the analyses of reason. Togther, they create wisdom. If a couple wants to grow deeper in understanding, the wife should offer her feelings up for consideration to the husband’s impersonal logic. And the husband should draw on her intuition to direct his reasoning. If both partners are dedicated to knowing the truth, they will develop together a marvelous harmony.
If both partners are dedicated to knowing the truth, they will develop together a marvelous harmony and an ever-expansive vision of life.
