TRUE MEANING OF WIVES SUBMIT TO YOUR HUSBANDS
Please let me show you HOW this is necessary ... But NOT in a literal wife/husband sense. This is a metaphor for a deeper message that lies beneath and beyond the surface story. The Truth message, wrapped under the veil.
"Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything."
When taken literally, which in this case is incorrectly, this verse causes much friction. Now, are you interested in how this verse is perfect in every way ... Without offending anyone?
Read on, but stay with me.
Our WIFE/BRIDE (feminine) is our subconscious Mind. The subconscious Mind is the female creative principle. This is Divine Mind as a feminine expression. The one who brings forth from the womb of thought, whatever is implanted or impregnated into it by the conscious Mind. This creation will manifest from within, to without. This is the Perfect universal LAW (Christ/God) in action. We are to JOIN her in the bridal chamber ... Within our subconscious Mind, and procreate. The subconscious is not our awareness.

The HUSBAND/GROOM (masculine) is our conscious Mind. Our awakened awareness. This is the Divine Father. The one who goes into the bridal chamber with the bride and impregnates the female subconscious Mind with thought/idea. This is LAW. The natural state for our conscious Mind is to be awake. This chamber is evident during sleep/meditation where the two can become one ... the Theta brainwave state. They are then joined to bring forth all creation.
Now read the following verse, now KNOWING the woman is the subconscious Mind and submissive Creator within. The man is the conscious Mind where thought originates before the female births the thought ... The child ... The SON/DAUGHTER of God ... The Christ. This is where awakened consciousness meets the subconscious/submissive servant.
"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."
~1 Timothy 2:11-12
Christ IS the Divine Principle ... The Divine Spark of God within ALL. This Christ (anointed one) is birthed when the two become one. The Christ is our Saviour from ignorance. The Divine will lead us through intuition into the Truth.
John 8:32 states: "You shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." It is our Source, what we are ... An individualized essence of the entirety of ALL. Each of us IS a Divine Spark of what we call God/Good. Once we understand the Truth of who we are ... which is Eternal energy/Spirit having a physical/Matter experience ... Then we come to the understanding that ALL is ONE. There is no "other," and what we do to someone/something else - we actually do to our Self.
Scripture always has deeper meanings that go beyond and beneath just the surface stories. The parables present as the surface stories ... The EXOTERIC OUTER MYSTERIES. The deeper Truth contained within the parables, are the ESOTERIC INNER MYSTERIES. For those who have eyes to see, and ears to hear.
Just a thought ...
