Men are seen less at spiritual gatherings.
There’s sufficient truth to this. It’s a statistic,
But in spirit, there’s no differentiation
Of that sort. It’s only the human condition
That makes of gender something rather fantastic.
Who is far more encouraged to ponder such things?
One could argue that women need, much more than men,
Spiritual alignment because they have more
Trouble finding fulfillment… Or just the reverse
May be true. It’s been argued that men are much worse
At compassionate feeling. They do not explore
Their emotions as freely. Are they alien?
Women are introspective. They feel a lot more
The contrast that their lives provide, and they can be
More considerate of all the finer details.
When in trouble their keen intuition prevails.
A much bigger picture men usually see,
And the details of things they have not much time for.
More acutely aware of the environment,
Women care for the whole earth and life everywhere.
Statistics generate labels that are unclear.
We are spiritual beings, and we are here
To look out for one another and truly care.
Peace on earth is achieved through our common intent.
