A woman can connect with another woman to one whole (1) only if they both rise above themselves, above the points in the heart (•). On the current corporeal level, a connection with a friend is impossible. This means that if a woman connects with another woman, it is clear to her that this state is already very close to a spiritual connection. In other words the goal obligates the women.
This is the meaning of the expression “help against him” that we still have to understand to its full depth. A man was given help and if he uses it correctly, he will reach the goal. Therefore the Creator said, “It is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis, 2:18), or in other words, it isn’t good to live without the Creator. “I shall make him a help against him” so that he shall reach Me (the Creator).
