Of Women, Part Two
By HaRav Ariel Bar Tzadok. Copyright (C) 2006 by Ariel Bar Tzadok. All rights reserved.

In the beginning, G-d created time and placed the cycles of stars and planets to measure it.  Time measures the flow of movement and the changes from life to death and from death to life.  This universal constant was placed within the body of women. 

The woman manifests the Divine clock on earth.  Her body keeps measure of the flow of time.  She needs no external reminder to demarcate hours and days; her genetics know; it is built into her by natural design.

We live in and are limited to a world of three-dimensional physical space.  Time is the one dimension that transcends them all.  A man does not naturally know of this transcendence and therefore thinks within the parameters and confines of space.  Women know time within their bodies; as such, they can think beyond the box of physical space and can peer into the great surrounding sphere that encompasses our physical finite world.

Life and death are given to us by the Creator.  While both men and women can create death, only women can create life.  Although men have the seed, women are the fertile ground in which the seed grows, is nourished and eventually produces offspring.  No man can ever do this.  This is the sole domain of one who is born a woman. 

Women bring forth life, but their bodies also bring forth death.  In the natural cycle, as the moon revolves around the earth, waxing and waning, so too does the body of woman create life and then destroy it, only to repeat the process over and over.  As the moon is reborn, grows to fullness and then diminishes to nothing, only to be reborn again, so too does the body of woman cycle through life and death.

The sacred cycle enables a woman to know within her body and psyche the very nature of the universe itself.  Through her flesh, she can become aware of many movements and flows in society and the universe at large.  The natural cycle is sacred; women of wisdom respect it and honor its passage. 

Only women who think like men, who are distant from their own identities look upon the cycle within their bodies as a nuisance or an inconvenience.  Such women try to live as men in what they perceive to be a manís world.  Unfortunately, herein is a great problem, a great deception. 

It is a manís world, some say.  This is indeed true; however, its truth only extends upon the men.  It is not a manís world for women.  For women it is a womenís world.  The problem is when women try to live in the manís world following the ways and rules of men.  This is the cause of great confusion and imbalance in human society.  It is not natural for men to be women; it is most unnatural for woman to behave like or even think like men.

What is woman is a knowledge held deep within the feminine psyche.  No man detached from Heaven will ever be able to fathom this.  Women must be like woman and remember their source of knowledge does not come from the physical outside world as it does with men.  Women gather knowledge from within, from their intuitive nature, from their natural connection with time, which transcends physical space.  Women can pierce the veil of time naturally and thus see beyond the limits of finite physical space.  No man disconnected from Heaven can even come close to this. 

Only a woman born a woman and who lives as a woman in a womanís world can know what is the fullness of womanhood as ordained by nature and by Heaven itself.  Woman, be who you are; only then will you see and know the universe for what it truly is.  No man or manly ways can provide for you this insight.
