A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.

 “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.  I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.”
 I Timothy 2:11-12

It is with a deep sadness that nowadays and increasingly so, I still see men and some scholars as well as the so called Initiates literally interpreting the sacred texts.

Here I focus on some texts that for centuries have served as an argument to degrade the human female. For the sake of the comfort of summarization, I will not dwell too much, but will give only a few examples and decoding as quickly as possible.
With the hope of awakening some, and with enormous respect and admiration for women:

To the woman he said, "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you."
I Genesis 3:16

"Woman" here is the unconscious, the world of thought, the abstract world of ideas. The world that is indestructible, abundant and invulnerable. Source of all things we consider real.

And, ironically, it is actually the exact opposite, as that what we call "reality" is in fact a product of mind and illusory. But that's material for another article. Similarly, "man" is the will, and in a broader sense, choice, conscious choice and "Children" symbolize the results, realizations, "creation".

Let us consider, for reasons not explained here, the basic principle that everything in reality stems from this world of the mind. This mental world is accessed by means of brainwork, the brain being the organ that "affects” the mind. And assume this metaphorically.

So then we have:
"Woman" (the unconscious) will see their sufferings multiplied because all that is "manifested" in what we call reality are the effects of causes that were put in mind , which is a “painful” process .

In this physical universe, there is a limit expressed by the principle of conservation of energy (one of the laws of thermodynamics) which implies that, in our actual physical reality, there is nowadays, as far as one knows, no pure "creating” in itself but only “transformation" at the expense of existing resources and therefore finite physical reality dictates this. This price is metaphorically described as "pain" as the process of "nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transformed", depending on the context, it is indeed "painful" in the sense of not being intrinsically free (it requires interaction, energy, space, time and relative conditions (pints of view), etc.).

If for example the unconscious (woman) is implanted by the will (man) with the idea of ​​"success" (son), a whole world of conditions have to point in the same direction, the process requires linearity and rules (pain). Needless to say, also metaphorically, that nothing neither falls from the sky nor materializes out of nowhere, nothing involving the three mentioned metaphors (man / desire; woman / unconscious; children / results). There is a concept that allows the conclusion for it to be possible to break the rules of reality, if only for the mental exercise of the design, which is naturally that of God, the All.  All, which by analogy, is that that becomes what is transformed, the essence, the only Truth.

“neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.”
I Corinthians 11:9 

It is now easier to understand the above metaphor.
The will / thought (man) was not created for the unconscious (woman) because the unconscious is the instrument of the will, the mechanism used to manifest in reality (the children) that what was imposed on the mind (women) by the will (man), using available resources ("painfully" ).


“A woman should learn in quietness and full submission.  I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet.”
 I Timothy 2:11-12

 The unconscious (woman) does not make any kind of judgment in relation to the will / thoughts (man). The unconscious does not act actively in any way in regards to the will. Not conditionally. The unconscious captures absolutely everything that is imposed by the will and manifests it (in reality/ the children) without any kind of judgment or contradiction, as much as it may "hurt".


Now I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.”
I Corinthians 11:3 
Finally we have the will (man) that  is headed by Christ (in a state of ideal consciousness the "Christ" consciousness is a state of oneness with all things, divine, the real "I";  in the  day to day it is however confused with the ego, what we think / believe  and not what we really are).

 The unconscious (woman) is headed by the will / thoughts (man).
The real self (not ego) is headed by the All, which is the only thing that exists, in other words, what many describe as "God."
