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.
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.
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.
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.
