QUESTIONS

What gender is the “true self” –
Does this always match up with one’s physical self?

For example, could a man, say, Jesus, over time become more like a woman spiritually –
Raising the question whether there may be evolution in spiritual gender?

And, if so, what would a man who evolved spiritually in the direction of women “look like” –
Would there be physical evidence of such a change?

On the other hand, what does a spiritual woman look like –
And would that be any different from a spiritual man?

Do angels, spiritual or human, have sexual attributes –
And, if so, how is gender manifested at the angelic level?

Do enlightened human beings emanate sexual differences,
That is, spiritually, are they one sex, the other sex, or both at the same time –
Or do they simply “shimmer” in some metaphysical sense
So we become attracted to these “higher selves”
And desire to follow them throughout the rest of our lives?

WAS JESUS, SPIRITUALLY, A WOMAN IN MALE FORM?

Was Jesus, spiritually, a woman in male form –
And is this why Evangelical men have recently desired
To establish a more “muscular” Christianity –
In order to cover up the shame of this truth?

Did Paul understand this by saying that, in Christ, there’s neither male nor female –
Because he understood that spirit bypasses all sex roles?
Moreover, is it possible that the men rushed to claim leadership of the Church
Because women appeared so naturally spiritual – so unmaterialistic –
So similar to Christ?

Jesus didn’t appreciate ambition-led male hierarchies – and neither do women today –
Moreover, he despised male hypocrisy, as do women who suffer most by it.

Jesus once imagined himself as a “mother hen” –
Is that why male theologians insisted upon replacing that poetic image
With the actual mother of Jesus?

So, let’s take all that fantastic Mariology and place it like a shawl around Jesus’ shoulders –
And then remove all the Davidic secular “power” that had so long been waited for
And that Constantine later appropriated to shore up his waning Empire –

What you’d be left with is a spiritual woman in male form
Who allows herself to be stretched across a Cross
Swallowing suffering like a woman giving birth
To a new world dedicated solely to God

That is, to “her” Mother.
