Meditation #9 -- goddess of the future

Queen over ice, keeper of Heaven
Mother of dreams that last forever
Guardian over the land and sea
And now cast down, and wronged.

Like the Light-Bringer fallen before
When we dwelt in the sterile Garden
You came down calling, to bless mankind
With a gift of knowledge.

You caught the unknown, now crystal clear
You showed us the way, you drew the maps
Not to the rock, but beside the stone
Giving peace, teaching truth.

But the preachers of lies rose in rage
Condemned you for a witch, a demon
Goddess forgive them not, for they know
Very well what they do.

History is a river, long and strange
Few know its source, fewer where it flows
Bearing us out to the unseen sea
The future we dared dream.

The risen shall sink, the sunk shall rise
In the howling winds and bitter cold
We may die -- or we may truly live
And claim the world again.

Your day will come, you will reign once more
Standing above all, blameless and high
While those who damned you, and their holy things
Rot away, forgotten.

[Something of a companion piece to my earlier "liberation" post]

Love this, Infidel! When the values of the Divine Feminine were banned from human spirituality and societies by the rise of patriarchal religion and values, the earth suffered and women suffered too because our dignity and status were lost alongside reverence for the Feminine. Anything that can help these lost and degraded values re-emerge and take their rightful place in human consciousness again is to do the sacred work of healing ourselves, our societies and our planet. It's why I've been on the Goddess Path now for over 30 years.

"for they know Very well what they do." Yep, the conservative church knows exactly what it's doing.

This is powerful and really thought-provoking. I had to re-read it a couple of times to get the full value. I agree that they know what they are doing. Thanks for giving me something to think seriously about.

Wishing you well, Stay Safe my friend!

Sixpence: Thanks -- I hope this is as far removed in spirit from the Republicans as it's possible to get.

Debra: While I myself don't have any religious beliefs, I find that the imagery and feel of paganism resonates with me a lot more than the arid, alien, cruel Abrahamic religions do.

Mike: And their secular enablers as well.

Dellgirl: Thanks for your interest -- I appreciate it.
