Question: If we look at the history of humanity’s development, we can distinguish two main models of the family: the Eastern one, in which a man predominates, and the Western where a man has somewhat lost his role and, in principle, a woman is in charge. Which model is the most correct from the point of view of Kabbalah?
Answer: Neither of them. Indeed, there are two models, and the Kabbalistic model is in the middle between them. This division is also typical for the compilation of calendars: the Western model is a solar calendar, the Eastern one is a lunar calendar, and the Jewish calendar is a middle one based on the correlation of the sun and the moon.
The same applies not only to calendar dates, but also to forces, worldviews, approaches to life, science, art, to all kinds of prosecution and preventive measures in society, and so on. Everything is based on the middle line.
That is, there is no good and bad. There are opposite qualities that need to be assembled together, correctly combined, and upon their connection, we will acquire perfection. Only in this way will we be able to correctly use all the forces in nature without denying either the female or the male part. We just need to find a golden balance between them.
