Roy Masters from ‘Adam and Eve Sindrome’
An ancient flaw in her nature draws a woman to a weak man. This flaw teaches her to feel secure by making him fail.
It also excites the weakness of the man to cling to her, which is what fuels in her a false sense of security, of power.
This mysterious flaw in woman’s nature arises from the spirit of Original Sin; and its current mystique inherently and always appeals to, and supports, the compatible wrong in man.
This misguided female spirit feels power through agreeing with what has gone wrong in man. To satisfy the need of this spirit, a man’s ego must be stroked and gratified, progressively weakened, and eventually destroyed to keep her happy.
But happiness is always short-lived, because she becomes possessed by a madness she can neither understand nor control.
Every woman instinctively inherits this black widow spider knowledge—tempting her man and sucking out his juices. Men sense the danger, but they are drawn to fulfill the mysterious and original promise of a life of glory implicit in a woman’s love.
To get a man, every woman knows she must put him up on a pedestal. She rationalizes that selfish compulsion as her loving duty. It is not. Man is also insecure.
He inherits the guilt of a wounded pride, which is forever trying to recover by employing the original spirit of its fall—the woman—obligating her spirit to give what she really cannot deliver.
“The very qualities that can produce real love, security, and happiness…are the qualities that oppose lust”
It is as though his need were trying to draw up through her a spirit to make good its ancient promise. Instead of improving his lot with her
affections, he is made progressively worse. As long as she continues to lie, offering herself like a Las Vegas dealer, he goes on hoping upon hope on the next turn of the dice.
But he goes on losing, reinforcing the spirit of the house with his vital substance.
The very qualities that can produce real love, security, and happiness (such as good character and other noble moral traits) are the qualities that oppose lust. The lovesick female spirit can flourish only on excitement emanating from the worshipful clinging of a failing, egotistical man.
It is threatened by real strength and virtue. While she needs this virtue in a man, her sick, egotistical spirit is afraid of being dominated by it.
A man of good character is not drawn to female guile, having little use for the appeal it has for other men. A guileful female has little use for this kind of man, because she knows she cannot have her way with him.
If she wants to control a man, a woman must be of easy virtue, quick to recognize a man’s ego worth. The favor of her body completes this slavery to her spirit.
Instant recognition of man’s ego is the theme of the original lie, which has always stimulated the evolution of male flesh to rise at each falling away of the soul. Sex happens to be the original symptom of man’s failing.
It represents death coming alive, a new body replacing the dying one through the sin of pride. For man, death comes through sin, and that sin is pride.
