The Number 69: What it Truly Means
The number 69 has gotten a “bad” rep for many years because of the perception of separation between man and woman, as the focus used to be on the supposed “differences,” yet the truth is that we merge and become one together so easily as we see that the differences that have been highlighted are only what have been “learned” through society yet not the truth of our essence. People perceive 69 as being very sexual…but think about the images you receive when thinking of this number – if you are like many, you may see a woman and man (or any combination of sexes as partners) both physically/sexually *equally* giving to each other at the same time, hence the balance. In this vision, not only are the partners giving, but they are also *receiving.* Balance is about both allowing yourself to give but also to receive. This is truly what the number represents, the yin yang or balance. Therefore, we can take away the “sexual” connotation that the number has and take this *balance* into all of our interactions, and loving with our partner. And I also have to say that the physical intimacy is about loving deeper than just the physical parts…it is about balancing to include the physical (while knowing that sharing such is completely limitless) and all parts of a being…we are truly more than our bodies.
Want to post this about what the yin yang symbol means…as the number 69 is yin yang, the balance. “In Asian philosophy, the concept of yin yang which is often referred to in the West as “yin and yang”, is used to describe how polar opposites or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. Yin yang are not opposing forces (dualities), but complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system. Taoist philosophy generally discounts good/bad distinctions and other dichotomous moral judgments, in preference to the idea of balance.”

It is about balance…the merging of female and male to become one, knowing that we are already as such and allow ourselves to let go of what we can perceive to separate us, as well as bringing the attention to the deeper connection in all ways.
