The Creation


God made woman from man's rib,
Not from his head ...
That he should command her,
Nor from his feet ...
That he should walk upon her,
But rather from his side ...
To be his partner in life,
From under his arm ...
To be protected by him,
And from near his heart ...
To be loved by him.

"A Message From God"


When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being.  When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils.  But you, woman, I fashioned.  I breathed the breath of life into man because your nostrils are too delicate.  I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you.  Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity of ME.

From one bone I fashioned you.  I chose the bone that protects man's life.  I chose the strong, yet delicate rib which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.  Your characteristics are as the rib ... strong ... yet delicate and fragile.


Hands


You provide protection for the most delicate organs in man ... his heart and lungs.  His heart is the center of his whole being, his lungs hold the breath of life.  The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to his heart and lungs.  Support him as the rib cage supports the body.

Around this one bone, I fashioned you and I shaped you.  I created you perfect.  Your eyes ... don't change them, your lips ... how lovely when they part in prayer, your nose ... so perfect in form, your hands ... so gentle to touch.  Oh yes, I've touched your hands, I've held your heart.  Of all that lives and breathes, you are the most like me.  That is why I made you the mother of life.  You see, you woman ... reside in me.


Hands


Adam walked with me in the cool of the day and yet he was lonely.  He could not see me or touch me.  He could only feel me.  So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with me ... I fashioned in you.  My holiness, my strength, my purity, my love, my support, and my protection.  You are special because you are the extension of me.

Man represents my image, and woman ... my emotions.  Together, you represent the totality of God.  So man ... treat woman well.  Love her and respect her ... for she is fragile.  In hurting her ... you hurt me.  What you do to her ... you do to me.  In crushing her, you only damage your own heart and lungs.


Hands


Woman ... support man as the rib cage.  In humility, show him the power of emotion that I have given to you.  In gentle quietness ... show your strength.  In love ... show him that you are the rib that protects his inner self.
