Creation and Chromosomes

One of my greatest fears is that, one day, there will be no men. The science is progressing to the point that we are almost able to clone mammals. All that will be necessary for procreation will be a few cells and a womb, with a bit of scientific hocus-pocus added. I'm not sure many of us have stopped to consider that there will be no need of men, once mammalian cloning is possible.

Men have been in awe of our ability to procreate since the dawn of homo sapiens' sentience. We have been taught by much of religion to believe that awe is the same as fear. I am in awe of my husband's abilities, but I certainly don't fear him. I celebrate that he can do so many of the things I only dream of doing.

My mission is to take all human "faces" off of The Divine Energy that makes our universe exist. If Einstein was correct, all matter is energy manifested in physical forms. I like to believe that Einstein was, and is, correct. This would possibly mean that what we call "The Big Bang" is the beginning of manifestations of matter from The Divine Energy in the Universe. This is what I choose to believe.

Chromosomes are what we call those bits of matter that form us. "X" chromosomes contain some of our "female" traits; "Y" chromosomes contain some of our "male" traits. I believe we need both types of traits, and I love the ways of my males who seem to have quite a great deal of "Y," both literally and figuratively.

I don't want an "X" rated world. I want my "Y", also.


Victorious Visits

Last week-end, I went to see a friend,
Whom I hadn't seen for forty-five years.
She had found a perfect soul mate,
Which has soothed all my foolish fears.

He husband shared with me how they
Are each complete within themselves,
Each following the values of The Spirit
That, in each of their souls, dwells.

He has built a guarded perimeter
To protect her and their serene home,
And he doesn't impose his fears on her
Wherever she may choose to roam.

In his life, he has experienced
Great loss and war, a difficult reality.
He denies many of his memories,
And wants her to remain fear free.

Another spoke to me this week-end when
I spoke of how The Divine isn't spelled G-o-d;
Before I could could finish my sentence,
"It's spelled G-o-o-d," he said to me.

Both their wives are women of faith;
Both go forth and joyfully minister to others;
Both have been examples to me,
In my journeys through friend, wife, and mother.

Of the manifestation and names for Divine Energy,
We all seem to have different visions,
But we didn't allow our different names or "faces"
To be cause for fear, anger, or derision.

I am so glad to know something of science,
So I don't look for the human in all things.
While humanity may be the most Divine creature,
I see Divinity in all that the universe brings.

I've always enjoyed similes and metaphors,
As I have history-based stories.
I have no trouble understanding the Bible
As a cautionary, instructive Allegory.

For the many manifestations of Divinity,
I will not believe that the only names
Are the ones our ancestors used
And only Jews and Christians claim.
