The Twin Aspects of Ourselves
In embryology, there is a condition known as fetal papyraceus. This occurs when the growth of one twin fetus happens faster than its sibling. As it gets larger, taking more than its fair share of the nutrients and space, it presses the other twin up against the wall of the womb until it starves to death. As sad as this scenario is, it can be an interesting way of examining the development of the twin aspects of ourselves: the physical and spiritual.
We come into this existence as a perfect fetus, both physically and spiritually. We have infinite possibilities with regard to how we will develop. It's been said that our purpose here is to give birth to our true selves. The image of a pregnant goddess symbolizes this concept in many ancient spiritual traditions. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. This dual or twin nature of our existence has been known for millennia. It's also been understood that to have spiritual and physical health, both of these twins must develop in a balanced way that complements and supports each other. Too many times, we find aspects of our human experience hampering the development of our spirituality or vice versa. We can get too caught up in the seeming permanence of the material world and become materialistic, shallow or narrow minded. By contrast, we can immerse ourselves in spirituality to such a degree that it becomes an escape. We end up forsaking the human world, forcing ourselves to live on an ethereal plane and become ungrounded. Many organized religions cause people to focus so much on the afterlife that they forget to live this one.
We live in a world of opposites, up/down, left/right, north/south, etc. While they seem opposed to each other at first, their purpose is actually to balance and support each other. This twin nature of ours is more easily viewed through the polarity that most clearly divides us as humans: masculinity and femininity. Many of the roles we assume in life are rooted in our masculine side such as the goal-setter, warrior, aggressor and provider. Likewise, we assume a feminine role when we act as the nurturer, healer or peacemaker. Our masculine twin is all about doing or getting something while the feminine twin excels at being something.
In western culture, it's very easy for doingness to consume all of our energy and deprive our beingness of a chance to thrive. Workaholics are a great example. How many times did you work too late only to have no time left in the day to meditate, read a good book or feed your soul in another way? Equally, too much beingness or feminine energy can leave us feeling stuck without motivation or the impetus to move our lives forward in a physical way. Focusing on our dis-ease and not doing anything to make ourselves better doesn't create the possibility for our healing or ease to be born into this reality.
