Male and female we are, but only
together are we called humanity. Different we are on the outside, this
we all know. Different we also are on the inside; this many do not
understand and even many more want to deny. Why should something so
clear be something so confusing?
In a toolbox, there are different tools
to perform different functions. Hammers are used to bang nails using
brunt force. Screwdrivers are used to turn screws using a focused
force. Although one can hammer in a screw and one can try to screw in
a nail, still both applications are best done with the tools designed
for the specific purpose.
The universe is the toolbox of Heaven.
We human beings are the tools. When we are used in the way in which we
were designed we get the specific task accomplished in the best and most
proper way. If however, we lack knowledge of how to use tools we end up
using the wrong tool for the wrong task and in the end making a mess
instead of an accomplishment. Wrong tools used in the wrong way create
for us more work instead of making our jobs easier. So it is with
tools, so it is with human beings.
We each have our individual personality
types. We each have our likes and dislikes. We each have our ways and
natural abilities and limitations. Only when we recognize these things
about ourselves can we realize who we are, what we are, and what kind of
tool we are, designed for what type of job.
Just by looking at a screwdriver one
should realize that it was not designed to bang hard objects. Just by
looking at a hammer one should realize that it was not designed to turn
a screw. How is it then that we look upon women (and men) and still do
not recognize the clear natural distinctions between us and allow each
to function in the role that nature has designed for us?
A woman’s biology is sacred. She is
unique in her body in a way that no man, not born a woman can ever be.
Try as many do to imitate, no one but a born woman can truly become
one. Only a woman born can give birth. This makes women closer to
Heaven more than any man. Like the Creator, woman can bring forth
life. No man can do this, no matter how much like a woman he tries to
The inner woman, her psychology, is as
sacred and unique as is her body. Men do not understand the inner
thoughts and feelings of women. This is because of the male’s lack of
spiritual insight. When a man draws close to Heaven, he will understand
the unique nature that the Divine has bestowed upon women. Being that
women are closest to the Divine in being creators, only a man who knows
the Creator above can gain insights into the creators below.
Only a man who knows his Creator in his
heart can gain true insight into human nature. For although both men
and women have feelings, passions and intuitive insight; it is women by
nature of their anatomy that enables these traits to more easily ascend
to the surface of consciousness and serve as guides to penetrate the
mysteries of the universe.
It is simple genetics; Heaven has
designed women, more than men, to be sensitive and receptive to the
Supernal Image. This is why men have such a hard time understanding
women (and often why women have a hard time understanding themselves).
When a woman stops listening to the external voices of men telling her
what is logical, how she should act, how she should appear and what she
should do, she can then become quite within and hear the inner Voice of
Heaven speaking within her heart, guiding her to be above all else, a
woman created to be a creator, formed in the Image of G-d.
