A "Dwelling in the Physical World"

We engage our physical world and nurture it, to find the common grain of truth, to expose and reveal the G-dly aspect latent in all of creation.

I thought this was interesting in discussing the differences between men and women. As a woman leader, I do not feel as if I only nurture what is already there, I feel as if I create something from above, my personal vision and defend it. I think there are many roles for women, but mine personally has been as a creator as well as giving other's opportunities. I think as a woman I am more attuned to the emotional needs of those around me and I am more flexible towards women and others due to making emotional exceptions, but I feel personally that I create what never would have otherwise existed. I think some of women's fears come from a fear of standing alone and could they or do they have the means to defend their most vulnerable ideas to others, or are they naturally out numbered with a disadvantage. I think this lack of grounding is a wall for women to stand against opposition, and why they are afraid of creating the boundaries, versus working within them. Reply
