It’s About Growth
God says: “Let there be mud.” God says: “Let there be rain.” God says: “I know what I want. I want men and women to populate this Earth that I’ve created out of mud and rain.”
“Why?” you ask. Because that’s His way of defining opposites. By bringing two differing forces into an equation you have tension. That leads to dominance and sublimation, when the two forces form as undercurrents in an otherwise abiding reality.
Then what? Then you have conflict and conflict resolution. Why? So you can grow bigger, stronger, and smarter than when you started out. It’s about growth isn’t it, this place called Earth? Then let it be so.
Are they really opposites, these men and women? Of course not, only seemingly so. Actually they’re more alike than not and they realize it as they get to know each other better. That’s why communication through interaction is so important. Opportunities for sharing are defined as these – occasions where you hold exchanges with each other. Then you have something to gripe about that’s real, not some invention from your own projected fantasy about who and what they are, and why it’s dangerous to mingle!
“Let it be so,” He says once again. “Men and women will mingle, get to know each other better and share that understanding within their own groups.” Knowing women as they are is a good idea for men, as is the opposite for women. It’s a challenge really.
“Then let it be so!”
