It is amazing how those simple words "women cannot create life" can elicit a reaction as a result of the continued efforts of a goddess paradigm that
"died" out long ago. I know most would say that it did not die out but honestly, I highly doubt the foundation of our family tree, three or four
generations back, would have encompassed the same fundamentals which abound today. Seriously, anyone in Europe would have been burned at the stake,
albeit a short duration of History. No one from of our commonly known "European" and "African" indoctrinated ancestors would have believed as the New
Age so aptly carry as "ancient and alive".
At any rate, now that I spoke those very words I feel I can at least also express my feelings on how it is that I carry them. I said women are just
vessels and that they are capable of "supporting Life" not creating it, that only men can create life. The very fact that I am a new Christian and
that I come from years of New Age culturing, from the 60's onward ( was a babe when Kennedy got shot--7 days old), has given me quite a history of
paradigms; if anyone can imagine or relate.
My basic beliefs crashed when I became a Christian, every aspect of my paradigms, from the moon to the stars and back again, across the multifaceted,
multilayered Leary-esque days of experimentation and shamanistic foundings. (yeah yeah, easy way to say I partied, but that never was my "condition"
to be on that social level and instead moved myself Spiritually through affirmations and rationalizations) However, given these elements I have to
say that I do not hold a single thread of them within me now; the moment the Holy Spirit entered me I was stripped of those paradigms and was left
with a reality not of my making. I was infused with a sense of opened awareness that allowed me to let it pour through me.
It would certainly warrant the loss of my "mother goddess" paradigm by way of such a notion I mentioned above; how else could one overcome her?
Did I trade one indoctrination for another? No, absolutely not, that would entail more than a Manchurian upbringing and my base experience had not
changed. Seriously, I "repented", I was changed.
OK, that is redundant because I did say that earlier, here is my gist, here is why I am going through this once more. Not to hash it, not to rash it,
I only need to let it flow. I could be like most and jump for the opportunity to carry a Thread of my own on just that topic and the reactionary
"natural" revolt it causes most folks, but I have never really thrived off of carrying or seeking that sort of expression here in ATS. I simply
participate in other folk's threads as a means of allowing my personal nature to actually "flow" in this world. I can simply be a loner in my home,
feel things, think things, sometimes discuss things with a neighbor or friend, but nothing can compare to the reach or magnitude of expressing oneself
publicly. Besides, I won't own the words afterwards, not in the copyright sort of fashion, that is ATS's domain, but I do believe we all use this
opportunity to solidify our personal foundation within none-the-less.
Sorry, still trying to get to the point here, I believe that women are Holy Vessels! Seriously, however it sounded on the part of "man" being the
creator, I was not intending for anyone to believe that man is anything more than the sinner they are. The ability to create, through GOD, as a
masculine true form of the Truth about our Almighty Creator was not intended to be shining or superior to women. On the contrary, which ever the
gender the fundamental nature of the person is the Truth for that person's existence and not one Being is better than the other as we are all sinners,
born of sin, into sin, through sin.
Yeah yeah, to some they say define that sin; it is the sin that we are innately destructive to ourselves and others, fearful, spiteful, and that we
can generate death, destruction, and the like from within; I cannot think of anything as sinful as mankind, male or female.
It is through our Spirituality in Christ and what he did about that very "Nature" of mankind that is Superior, and Magnificent, worthy of praises and
worthy of acceptance; what a Gift to be given and what an honor to receive, freely and without merit on the part of our past or present state of
So many think that we "Accept" by saying so and forcing it, or enforcing it, and there is nothing further from the truth; it is Supernatural and
anyone who did not experience it that way (such as those raised within its confines placed there by others) cannot really know what I am saying. They
can rationalize it and give it the benefit of doubt as we explore it; if it has a negative bite it doesn't make it wrong. A sour taste is a form of
disappointment and that is a derivative of many things.
Again, rambling and getting back to point. Men are just as lost if not more so then women, this much I can fathom
