Excerpt from; "Androgyny: The Opposites Within" by June Singer

         "“Without a sense of disjunction, the person will become at once tender and firm, flexible and strong, ambiguous and precise, focused in thinking and diffused in awareness, nurturing and guiding, giving and receiving. It will be like listening to a duet skillfully played by a pianist and a violinist, when one does not hear the two separate instruments so much as the harmonious interplay between them. Androgyny is to be experienced as a conversation where every sentence builds on the totality of what has gone before, and not as a succession of alternating brief speeches. In an androgynous interaction, an individual knows the simultaneous working of that intuitive aspect by which he is able to encompass wholes, with the sensate aspect wherein each minute element of a situation is seen and felt in its relationship to the totality.” - June Singer

Obviously, I like her for her book -Androgyny: The Opposites Within- due to my being androgynous, and for her to realize the importantance of studying the feminine/masculine traits in one being/person.


For myself androgyny is realizing "Non-Duality", that is in a way similar to how the sperm and egg, united to become "One"
