And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Genesis 219">And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. Genesis 220">And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. Genesis 221">And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; Genesis 222">And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. (Genesis 2:18-23 KJV)
What does Adam have to do with this cup of coffee? He, like us, are negotiating contradiction. Adam walks with HaAv, the creator of all while yet attempting to obey and complete every mission even though he lacks wholeness. Adam doesn't feel as if he has what he needs even though he silently obeys the Father. Yah watches and takes notice of Adam's disposition when it begins to, or has overwhelmed him to the point of impairment.
Adam notices that Mr. Monkey has Mrs. Monkey, Jeffery Giraffe has Jerhonda Giraffe, and so on. Yet for him, there was no Mrs. Adam. There was no one to make the coffee, bare children, or ask, "Does this fig leaf dress make me look fat...?"
Adam lived in contradiction, pleasing Yah while experiencing displeasure and discomfort. Adam's present state of growth and awareness found him needing someone. Though he admired his father like every thankful son, he wasn't able to fake it until he could make it. I would suggest Adam's condition and challenge stands before us all. Do we focus the power of our perception on what we "feel" we lack or do we embrace Yah and take life to the next level.
I know, I know, sometimes the last thing you want to hear is a next level invitation when you'd rather just complain a little of show that you're ticked-off in the present. This is the interesting thing about pain, it demands your immediate attention and cements us into the moment of its arrival and lingering stay. Adam's pain is real. His pain was just as real as our self-created defeats and failures, our pain of regret and remorse, envy, jealousy, and any other malady we entertain in the darkness of our own hurting hearts. At least Adam didn't begin to blame our Elohim and suggest his pain was because of His lack of provision.
Adam missed a great opportunity because of a lack of awareness. He wan't aware of the simple reality that he already had what he needed in himself. I'll say it again. Adam was unaware of his own self-sufficiency. Made in the image and likeness of Yah our Elohim, he had the choice and the chance to search within rather than outwardly. He missed it.
As Yah undoubtedly awaited Adams awakening to this truth, He realizes Adam would become too burdened and even more unhappy, so much so that it would impeded his growth out of the situation. This is what Yah desires, that we grow out of our present situations and so walk on a higher level of glory and emunah.
As night falls, Adam is solidified in state of discomfort and sleeps. Elohim then takes from Adam only what he already possessed, and presents it to him within the medium of his focus which is externally oriented. Being so, he fully recognizes that Chavah is bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. Adam couldn't see what was within him until he was confronted with it.
As the cup of coffee is stirred and agitation forces the hidden store of cream to become mixed with everything else, it becomes whole and homogeneous. Doing so, it becomes whole in that what is above, is also beneath, and there are then no "surprises." Cream and sugar alike can then be shared from the first sip to the last with equal enjoyment.
We are like Adam and the cup of coffee, not knowing what is within until calamity, tragedy, poverty or lack forces our proverbial backs to the wall and we are forced to, "Dig Deep" and find a solution.
This finds us being reactionary at best.
