Creation is the work of the masculine principle and the feminine principle. As soon as these two opposing and complementary poles find themselves in each other’s presence they set to work to create.
And because this law applies in all the regions of the universe, it also governs the behaviour of human beings.
From the moment a man and a woman meet, he becomes active and dynamic, whereas she becomes receptive.
But there are obviously exceptions.
Initiates, who have gone much deeper into the understanding of all natural phenomena, have learnt to use this law of polarisation in spiritual life. Of course in spiritual life it is not men and women that are at work, but divine principles, and in order to develop within them the feminine qualities of receptiveness, humility, gentleness, goodness and obedience, an initiate puts themselves in the presence of the masculine principle – the celestial Father.
And to develop the masculine qualities of strength, willpower and boldness, they enter into contact with the feminine principle – the divine Mother. Because they work on the masculine and feminine powers alternately, an initiate is capable of bringing the divine child – Christ – into the world.
