Question: According to the wisdom of Kabbalah a man is composed of two parts, masculine and feminine. What is the significance of the feminine element in a man?
Answer: The feminine element in a man is the force that drives him from within to search, to spiritual flight. Why does the feminine element give a man a lift but not to a woman? It is because she is pushing his masculine part. But in the feminine element, the desire to receive, there is no masculine element.
Question: If so, is the feminine part of a man more important?
Answer: The feminine part is more important everywhere. If Eve had not existed, we would exist as amorphous spiritual matter.
