leonard oprea: ABOUT WOMAN










In the Genesis it is written: So God created man in his own image. 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. And, the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto 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.

All right. Question: why then especially the 21st  Century’ woman disagrees so categorically with Adam, implicitly disagrees with God, concerning her divine and indivisible unity with the man? (Jesus reminds us: this is God’s law of the sacred marriage.)

In my opinion there are two causes: first – across the centuries Eve built an irrefutable conviction: that rib was just a bone of Adam, nothing else. So, using that rib as any other brut material, God created actually an other human kind, different from man. And this other human kind, secretly, Eve baptized “God-as-a-woman”.  

And today her conviction became public, total and lethal.

The second cause – Adam still can not understand: how is possible that bone from his bones, flesh from his flesh, God from his God… could be anything else, but no way to be Love?

And today his sadness became almost lethal.

Leonard Oprea created the Breathing, an original type of essay in Romanian and world literature.The Breathing is a short, simple yet profound meditation on human condition, a meditation ended by a haiku. But – this haiku does not finish the meditation. In fact, it re-opens this reflection to new questions and responses on human destiny. There are 100 Breathings in Leonard Oprea’s work „Theophil Magus – Confessions 2004 – 2006”, ed. „Universal Dalsi”, 2007, Romania)
