I like to share my self-portrait I made in 2001. is all about gender.
The Magic of work as one unit, your masculine and feminine energies, Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles Gender; manifests on all planes.
This Principle embodies the truth that there is GENDER manifested in everything, the Masculine and Feminine Principles ever at work. This is true not only of the Physical Plane but of the Mental and even the Spiritual Planes.
On the Physical Plane, the Principle manifests as SEX, on the higher planes it takes higher forms, but the Principle is ever the same. No creation, physical, mental or spiritual, is possible without this Principle.
An understanding of its laws will throw light on many a subject that has perplexed the minds of men. The Principle of Gender works ever in the direction of generation, regeneration, and creation.
Everything and every person contain the two Elements or Principles, or this great Principle, within it, him or her. Every Male thing has the Female Element also; every Female also contains the Male Principle.
If you would understand the philosophy of Mental and Spiritual Creation, Generation, and Regeneration, you must understand and study this Hermetic Principle.
It contains the solution of many mysteries of Life. We caution you that this Principle has no reference to the many bases, pernicious and degrading lustful theories, teachings, and practices, which are taught under fanciful titles, and which are a prostitution of the great natural principle of Gender.
Such base revivals of the ancient infamous forms of Phallicism tend to ruin mind, body, and soul, and the Hermetic Philosophy has ever sounded the warning note against these degraded teachings which tend toward lust, licentiousness, and perversion of Nature's principles.
If you seek such teachings, you must go elsewhere for them Hermeticism contains nothing for you along these lines. To the pure, all things are pure; to the base, all things are based.
Thank you for listening!
