The battle of the sexes is as old as the sexes themselves. But what lies at the heart of it? One of my guides along my path as a man and as a healer, once told me something that might shed some light on the subject. This is what he defines as the two biggest problems in the world.
“The first is that, on average, the level of individual self-love of the people inhabiting the planet is terribly low. This is not the self-love of the identity loving itself. That is what is meant by megalomaniac, self-aggrandizement etc. This is the inability of the identity, that which you think you are, to receive the love of that which you really are. The second problem is the inability of women to give their sexual energy to men, primarily due to their anger, coupled with the even worse inability of men to receive the sexual energy of women, primarily due to their fear.” – Greg Ehmka

Sometimes sexual energy might be the sticking point, and other times love energy might be the sticking point.
