Empowering equality within ourselves
99) G-d created the human being in the beginning of creation, or the Adom (=human) as we know him/her. Yes, it can be either one, or both in one and the same person for that matter. However, a bit later it is revealed that G-d had taken a bone from the human being and created a help, and Adom named that help woman. Her name would become Chava, or better known in the world as Eve. However, it's not quite right to interpret it the way many do understand the word woman within that particular section of the Book of Bereishis (Genesis), namely fully in its literal interpretation. As the word Adom refers to a human being in Hebrew, so is Chava related to a person's soul. She is man's soul, Adom's help. Nevertheless, when we go on the literal path, then we witness how G-d put both male and female on an equal level. They both have equal importance to Him because a new life can't be born without one or the other. You find this everywhere within nature, even when we would be talking about a fruit tree. No matter how we look at it, both are needed. It's the balance of nature so to speak. But it does somehow teach us that we can only achieve a better world when we also in the reality of our lives would succeed in bringing the concept of equality in balance. If we don't, then we may even forget the acquisition of a new impulse to our human endeavor, and no new dawn, no progress, just a circle, or encirclement. This is what we could call the most important basic lesson within our physical world, as well as the spiritual one. This revelation, in a certain way, reveals partially the reason behind the two stories regarding the creation of man. The one is very physical in nature, as we refer to it as the body, while the other follows the path of spirituality within the capacity of the soul. Yes, it somehow teaches us that as new life can only become a reality when a man and a woman join together, that it won't be that different when you bring the masculine and the feminine within yourself in balance with each other. Only that will create the thoughts and actions needed to pursue a better world for everyone. For that reason it is taught that Adom will leave his/her parents, and cleave to his Chava (soul), the same as Avraham did in a later time. Every soul has its purpose, and a particular light to enlighten the person with wherein it resides, as well as those it succeeds in enticing them to follow their soul, their light within their very own gift given to them.
