I’ve found that its much harder to find an enlightened girl than an enlightened guy (though both are super rare).
Am I just not looking in the right places? It doesn’t seem there’s any rhyme or reason as to where these type of people congregate.
Can anyone relate to this?
It’s not a stone cold thing that can be defined I guess because it can manifest itself in so many ways, but let’s say here are a few almost universal characteristics:
- They understand the power and importance of faith as an emotion
- They realize the world is filled with childish games and isn’t to be taken too seriously
- They understand they have a soul and they aren’t just a composite of chemical reactions
See it as man is one pole, female the other pole. Or as ying, yang. Thinking is one approach, feeling another. A question that is based on male energy, tries to find a solution in male energy. There are many enlightened woman, yet they are not behaving like a man :-)
I’ve been able to discuss new levels of knowledge with some of my more enlightened male counterparts but it always stays so intellectual because you know we’re both males.
I think a female mind would allow me to dig deeper emotionally and also spark certain thoughts that no discussion with a male can.
Mind is not female that’s your big mistake.
Mind is sexless and bullshit.
Enlightened might be life any life because it’s life
And I don’t want to be rude , by saying mind is bullshit.
Thoughts can not be truth because they are translated in language,and there is something for language.
Even we fuck up experience by giving it words, it’s at least a bit closer to the origin.
That makes sense to me.
I would say there are definitely differences in the male/female mind emotionally.
For example, when I leave my house I am on high alert with a “don’t mess with me front” almost all the time due to my own fears of violence, harassment and ultimately murder and rape. I simply do not feel I am adequately prepared to defend myself if need be. (I am making daily active steps to help me feel adequately prepared if such were to happen with self-defence.) To be clear I have never been a victim of any of the above and in every other area of my life I am confident and at peace.
My point is that my male enlightened friends do not have these same feelings of vulnerability and we have had many good discussions about the differences.
En lightment comes in many forms… Faith is not an emotion, faith is linked with trust, emotion well let’s look at the word it self E – Motion science told us that E : Energy so emotion is energy in motion….. Enlightenment also comes with life experience perhaps you are not ment to find such a person, because you need to meet someone and grow and learn from each other to become enlightened together. As partners or companions we are all here to learn from each other.
The yiin and yang all about balancing your masculine and feminine within yourself not allowing either to control but to be balanced to find an equilibrium.
oh to be enlightened …..
you said you were looking for an enlightened woman …….you did not say you were looking for love…. I will say that when you are enlightened you will then understand what the word Love truly means. rise to love rather than fall in love… A enlightened person male or female would understand this
My theory (which is a belief so I am not strongly attached to it) is that males are more likely to experience the sudden awakening of ego death as a response to self-loathing, aka the Ekhart Tolle experience, while females are more inclined to gradual enlightenment which is less dramatic as a story but by no means less significant or less likely to occur. Unfortunately this is reflected in relative suicide statistics. This brings up the obvious point that awakening is an excellent alternative to suicide of course.
Also the enlightened will choose to continue to create a self if they wish to continue engagement with “others”. The difference is the realisation that self and other are inseparable can not be forgotten and so the self experience is not created to pursue worldly acquisition but is created out of compassion and playfulness. Your partner does not need to be enlightened to be loving and loved.
My experience is that when you know you deserve and believe that what you need is coming to you, it does.
seeking “enlightened” significant other is very vague though. What is it about an enlightened person that you want? The more clarity you have about who to attract the more compatible they’ll be.
