Every man has to be the best man he can be,

And the best woman he can be.

Every woman has to be the best woman she can be,

And the best man she can be.

The ideal male has to be compensated by the ideal female.

The ideal female has to be compensated by the ideal male.

Each of us works to get the ratios right among

Reason, logic, practical, expedient, ambitious,

Aggressive, devoted, empathetic, compassionate, accepting,

Nurturing, understanding, receptive, open, imaginative,

And all the other characteristics that comprise the species.

We can be too much the man

And not enough the woman,

Too much the woman

And not enough the man.

We have to be balanced by our opposites,

And seek the middle ground between the extremes,

Bringing, Logos and Eros,

Animus and Anima,

To life within each of us,

Neglecting neither,

Honoring both.
