One of the great things about The 14th Degree and Beyond is the "beyond" part of it. We strive to activate cognizance in our readers and contributors to get you to take your degrees off the 4 corners of the page and make them walk and talk with purpose. I pulled this particular phrase "how to keep your husband..." from the 14th degree of the Lost-Found Muslim Lesson #1 (1-14) which asks the question:
What is the meaning of M.G.T. and G.C.C.? and the answer, in part, reads "Muslim Girls Training and General Civilization Class. These are the names given to the women and girls of Islam in North America, teaching them how to keep a home, how to raise their children, how to keep their husband..."
What sparked my blog are a few things - the stereotype that I see far too much in women in how they define "keeping" their husband, builds from the International Earth Conference on taking care of God, and what I have experienced and seen in self and my sisters who fail to take care of themselves within their cipher. It is the balance of these three things (and I'm sure alot of other things as well) that, in MY opinion, define "keeping" your husband.
When I looked up the word keep, I found 36 definitions of the word. The definitions that sparked me were "to be faithful to," "to have or maintain an established position in a relationship," "to preserve," "to stay in accord with," "conserve," "ENJOY."
"Keeping your husband, means you do what you have to so he doesn't leave you" Is this true?
For every 5 women AND men you ask, their experience will reveal that in some cases they (or their woman/Queen/Earth) did everything seemingly that the other wanted and it still didn't work out. There are many that will read that part of the degree and think just that - If this method has worked for you, we'd like to hear from you about your experience and what your limitations of this are, if any.
"Keeping your husband, means keeping your self"
Is this true?
My experience and from other sisters I've spoken to revealed that they are best able to take care of their God/King/Husband and family and they themselves are at their best. Yet, as Original Woman we almost always put ourselves last in every aspect of our lives. This leaves us bitter, tired, frustrated, dissatisfied, and in general chaotic within ourselves, thus not able to truly reflect properly, nor understand God's Cipher. So, sisters, make sure you take time out for yourself to regroup, meditate, have a girls night out, read your favorite book, or even 5 minutes to recharge back to your best... So you can continue to sustain your Original Man.
"Keeping your husband, means to conserve and maintain him and his best interest"
Is this true?
One of the points discussed at the International Earth Conference is how hard it is to get our men to see a doctor, or other health professional, how to get them to refine their diets, or just simply groom their nails. I think that so many times we get caught up in their wants, that we do not pay attention to their needs. We must make sure that we can maintain the skills and tools to be able to proactively identify the medical, dietary, and psychological needs of our counterpart. There are some sisters who have that on LOCK... they are great at truly conserving and preserving their husbands/Gods and learn each and every day from their wisdom.
"Keeping Your Husband, means..."
