How is the gender we come into this world with determined? The answer is simple. When the sperm cell is carrying an X chromosome a girl will be born, and in the case of a Y chromosome it will be a boy. This is a scientific fact, yet I like digging deeper for answers. I am convinced my spirit decided before it reincarnated that it wanted to be born male and to go through life as a man. In that way my spirit can have optimal experiences to learn its lessons. Naturally, I can’t remember this decision and the lessons, as these are safely kept in my unconscious mind.

"I’m not really that into language," I once said in a writer’s café. Those present looked at me in astonishment: A writer who isn’t involved in language, that’s unthinkable, isn’t it? However, that is the case with me.

Surely you’re familiar with those discussions on men and women. Those conversations in which the behaviour and characteristics of men and women are stereotyped. I don’t know what they mean to you but in my case, my hairs stand on end. Because those taking the lead in such conversations, will unknowingly define how others should behave as men or women, whatever the case may be. And before you know it people actually believe this and it becomes one of their restrictive beliefs.
Have you ever wondered why governments bail out the big banks and companies when the economy’s going through a rough patch...and let the small ones go under? And why more and more people all over the world are living in poverty?
