I find that the great majority who attend religious ceremonies, in this case mass, are women. So where are the men? Is it that they are more likely to be spiritual rather than religious? Is it that women are more easily led, so tend to congregate into religion instead of taking the risk of seeking out for themselves? Does inwardquest have more male or female users?

Thank you, namaste

All of us are spiritual beings whether we are conscious or it or not and the male and female energy exists in all of us. So I believe that all of us are equal spiritually.

This question reminded me of a chapter in "Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch, allow me to quote.

Life moves in cycles. Everything is cyclical. Everything. When you understand this, you become more able to enjoy the Process—not merely endure it.All things move cyclically.

There is a natural rhythm to life, and everything moves to that rhythm; everything goes with that flow. Thus it is written: “For everything there is a season; and a time for every Purpose under Heaven.”

Wise is the one who understands this. Clever is the one who uses it. Few people understand the rhythms of life more than women. Women live their whole lives by rhythm. They are in rhythm with life itself. Women are more able to “go with the flow” than men. Men want to push, pull, resist, direct the flow. Women experience it—then mold with it to produce harmony.

A woman hears the melody of flowers in the wind. She sees the beauty of the Unseen. She feels the tugs and pulls and urges of life. She knows when it is time to run, and time to rest; time to laugh and time to cry; time to hold on and time to let go.

Most women leave their bodies gracefully. Most men fight the departure. Women treat their bodies more gracefully when they are in them, too. Men treat their bodies horribly. That is thesame way they treat life.

Of course, there are exceptions to every rule. I’m speaking here in generalities. I’m speaking of how things have been until now. I’m speaking in the broadest terms. But if you look at life, if you admit to yourself what you are seeing, have seen, if you acknowledge what is so, you may find truth in this generality.

If you read that, and can acknowledge it, then you could say that women are more "spiritual" then men, however I think the "amount of spirituality" is hardly determined by gender, but more by way of life.

I think religious roles shouldn't be confused with spirituality.

Religious roles and norms are often dictated by culture. Hence, in male-dominated communities, men are naturally seen as the authority figures, and assume such roles in politics, religion and probably in the home. It is the opposite for female-dominated communities (especially long ago, in the old paganistic world where the female with her birthing abilities was seen to hold the power of creation).

All things being equal, without preoccupation with worldly concerns, I think men and women can be just as spiritual.

I discovered something interesting tonight. I have been uploading Abraham audio's to youtube and was looking at the statistics of the viewers. I noticed that countries have quite a difference in male/female viewers.

USA Male 18% female 82% EUROPE Male 45% female 55% SOUTH AMERICA male 84% female 16% MIDDLE EAST male 0% female 100%

I was quite shocked at the differences. Especially to see that South American males far outnumber females and even surprised at the differing ratio between USA and Europe. It didn't show statistics for Australia for some reason and didn't have enough data for Africa or Asia.

It also shows the age ranges of each sex but that's another story.

How interesting! The age range must be equally so! They are most definitely not what one would expect! Thank you, namaste

Good question.MOST spiritual leaders /shamens/revealers of truth /iconic figures have been male.However ive often wondered if the male religious communities have down played their role and thrown aside much of the female teaching.

The bible has very little in the way of female writing.Could it be that the powers that were ( male) left out any writing by women?

My guess is that were spiritually the same sex.

The fact that all humans are born equal, there is no separation in terms of one being more spiritual than the other. We are all spiritual beings, regardless.

In terms of religion I believe that they are more male Preachers, Pastors, and Priest in the Churches than women, although there are more female members in the Church at large. But as you are well aware women were oppressed at one time, and it was a man’s world. Although women have come along ways, and now it is being said that it is a women’s world, but the man is still the head of the family. Also there are always more male figures as world leaders than females!

requited love is asexual or androgenous,
little doubt that 25% of prior reincarnations were of opposite gender,
who has the upper % today, is worth a study for those keeping score

Women in general - it appears their egos are not as big as mens and their mind is more conected to loving and caring ideas, much the message of Jesus. (if we are talking about a Christian Church here of course).

Nevertheless, at the church I attend there seems to be more men, who actually attend alone too.
