The idea of a male god who created our world, doesn’t work. The reason for this is that where you have the concept of a male god, you also have male priests and rulers who have shown themselves to be totally incompetent in ruling countries. All patriarchal societies have been violent and unfair, so when the people complain to these male priests and rulers in the past, they off course do not want to blame themselves, and they cannot blame the god whom they invented, & so they blamed the people. They claimed the reason why things were going badly was because the people had ‘sinned’ or disobeyed god. (This means not obeying the rules invented by the priests and rulers). But there was a problem – even when the people obeyed their was misery & conflict, & poverty abounded, so why was that? The priests then invented devils and demons to shift the blame onto them, these reprobates were plotting to destroy the human race. Then when the smartest people asked, “if god had created our world and everything in it; why has he also created devils and demons?” The priests had no answer to this and simply said; “it is a great mystery, that only god knows”.
Rasa Von Werder: William, as a Catholic & (later studying the Protestants as well as Yoga) the theory goes like this:
God created Angels, according to St. Thomas of Aquinas, EACH ANGEL IS A SEPARATE SPECIES & he also named the hierarchy & types of angels starting from the lowest scale of “Angels” to “Archangels,” “Cherubim” &“Seraphim.”
This dogma is interesting in that NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN AN ANGEL, they are PURE ENERGY & there is no way to prove they exist through human endeavor, but yet, this is factual to most religions. I believe in it myself, but certainly wonder how any Saint knew how to explain that each Angel is a separate species, their choirs, etc. How did these saints know, except, of course, by revelations from the Holy Spirit?
The origin of demons, then according to the Catholic/Christian idea is that there was a great Angel in Heaven, Lucifer, who was one of the brightest, & he felt himself so brilliant that he was at odds with God – he wanted to be a thing unto himself rather than humble himself before anyone, thereupon his fall from Grace. You cannot “stand up to” or “against” God & remain in Grace, so he was immediately cast out of the Presence of God.
It fell upon another great being, Archangel Michael, whose name means “Who Is Like God?!” to take this ruffian, put the spear on the neck of this once –luminous Angel, now the form of a loathsome reptile called Satan, & banish him into the Hell of eternity, his Chela Angels with him. In this place where they are condemned, they wait for humans who like them, do not love God & like them, stand against God, & it’s also the office of these creatures to tempt the humans – some saints call Satan “the exercise boy of God” – to tempt their faith & their love of God, & when they fall in some way, big or small, then ACCUSE THEM BEFORE GOD to make sure God notices their sin & Satan hopes God sends them to Hell.
We were told emphatically that we must believe in this Satan & that he is a living, spiritual creature separate from us, the qualities that he has were explained, & it all made sense.
I believed in this way for many years but in the end, I amended my concept of Satan. I saw that 99% or more of the evil on this planet emanated from human males, & so, I conclude, THAT THEY ARE THE ORIGIN OF MOST DEMONS, THESE DEMONS COMING FROM THEIR “ID” OR PRIMITE PART OF THEMSELVES, SOMETIMES INVOLVING OTHER PARTS LIKE THE HEART, MIND OR INTELLECT, BUT MOSTLY FROM THE “LOWER SELF”.
It seems that males, looking for a scapegoat, as you said, came up with the idea of a separate entity that did harm, & now, conspiracy theorist David Icke goes one step further & pinpoints them as alien creatures from another planet who impregnated women on this earth, from there on in, creating so much harm.
Looking at all this logically it is laughable how hard men have tried to put the blame for their own actions upon someone else.
I can go on about the wars, genocides and poverty created by patriarchy, but we know all about this, if we read history or just read today’s papers. So how would it be different if we worshipped a Female Creatrix?
Rasa Von Werder: It seems to me that the beginning of Hell was when the human males turned against Mother God & the woman & after they did so, they created Hell on earth. (This happened over a period of thousands of years.) Here is “the fall” of some of the Angels/men, who believed they were SO GREAT, THEY DID NOT HAVE TO LIVE UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE WOMAN & MOTHER GOD! These men set up the WORSHIP OF GOD AS FATHER – set THEMSELVES up as God instead of woman – THE MASCULINE GENDER – taking the thunder & glory from Mother God, usurping her dignity & respect, downgrading women.
The “battle of Armageddon” then, is the time when men are waging their last battle to DESTROY THE HUMAN RACE,– WHICH IS PURPORTED THE INTENT OF SATAN FROM THE VERY FIRST – that he always hated & wanted to DESTROY THE HUMAN RACE.
WE ARE NOW ON THE EDGE OF THIS PRECIPICE, WHERE MOTHER GOD HAS TO RETURN IN HER POWER TO SAVE US!
In ancient times people did worship the Her, as the Great Mother. Like a mortal mother She loves us all unconditionally because we are Her children. This is a similar concept to what Jesus taught. He tried to sell the idea of a loving Father God but this never caught on. Probably people found it hard to conceive of a male god who could love us all unconditionally, whereas, it is a lot easier for us to accept a Mother God, who can give us unconditional love.
Rasa Von Werder:
Jesus was at odds with Patriarchy, He was Matriarchal, as are all great religions at their mystical core; they all teach Divine Love. But in the hands of human men, Divine Love always goes the way of the dinosaur & their instincts take over, creating what we see around us in all male-dominated religions & societies. And of course, they persecuted all the Sons & Daughters of Mother God, killed them, took their religions away from them, & turned them into something else
The problem with this is that we all know of people who are very selfish or violent or abusive so does Mother God also loves these people unconditionally?
Rasa Von Werder:
In unconditional love, sin is not rewarded,
“God chastizes those whom She loves” &
“Spare the rod – spoil the child.”
It is a known fact that when a Mother loves her child, SHE DISCIPLINES HIM. How could he learn to do right if he were not disciplined? By punishing him for wrong doing, She mends his ways.
This is the way of the earthly Mother as well as the Divine Mother within, who visits us in the Law of Karma – what goes around, comes around. SIN MUST BE PUNISHED.
And the answer has to be, yes, after all mortal mothers can love their children, no matter what they do, and wives can still love abusive husbands even when they beat up and abuse them. This then creates a problem, because if these abusive and violent men are loved unconditionally, no matter how badly they behave, what is to prevent them from continuing their behaviour? The answer to this is nothing, and the reason for this, is that Mother God has given us all the gift of freewill. So no matter how badly we behave, She will not interfere.
Rasa Von Werder:
Eventually, Mothers do get tired of bad children & send them away, put them in a juvenile home, or force them to leave the house.
Wives, eventually, get tired of being beaten & divorce their husbands. There are a few who do not leave, but most, in time, do leave abusive spouses.
In the same way, God always, eventually, catches up with us. There is a song Elvis Presley recorded called “Run On.”
It’s the sinner who goes to Church to meet a woman for adultery, or the guy who goes to the back door to see another man’s wife. You can “run on” for a long time but sooner or later, God, or a man with a gun at the back door, will catch up with you.
God does catch up with us for sin, in this world or in eternity, there is reward & punishment.
What unconditional love means is this:
What unconditional love means is this:
No matter what we do, AS LONG AS WE ARE SORRY, God will forgive us & take us back.
Free will means that we are free to do good or evil, God does not force us to receive the good, we can go the bad way if that is our will.
If that is the case, what is to be done about people who harm and abuse others? The problem is reflected in some of the controversial and disturbing teachings of Jesus, a lot of which is Goddess teachings from the ancient religion of the Great Mother. To quote from the King James version,-
In Matthew chapter 5 verse 38
Ye have heard that it hath been said. And eye for a eye a tooth for a tooth:
But I say unto you. That ye resist not evil: but whosoever she smite thee on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.
And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee and not turn not thou away.
Ye have heard that it hath been said. Thou shalt love love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
But I say unto you. Love your enemies, bless them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you:
That ye many be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth the rain on the just and on the unjust.
In Luke chapter 6 verse 27
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you.
Bless them that curse you and pray for them which despitefully use you.
And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take away thy coat also.
Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again
And as ye would that man should do to you, do also to them likewise
For if ye love them which love you, what thanks have ye for sinners also, love those that love them.
And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? For sinners also do even the same.
And if ye lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thank ye? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive much gain.
But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the highest: For he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father is merciful.
Judge not and ye shall not be judged: condemn not and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and yer shall be forgiven.
So does this mean we all should be wimps and allow other people to use and abuse us!? Well no, because Mother God not only loves the abusive people in our world She also loves everyone else. This is clear when Jesus says:
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
So Mother God wouldn’t want us to suffer abuse or harm if we do not want to experience that. To understand this, we need to understand another part of the Bible, Psalm 23. (King James Version again). This also comes from the Ancient Religion of the Great Mother.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
The unfortunate thing about this wonderful Psalm is that Christian priests have interpreted it to mean, that if you obey god’s laws, (the ones invented by male priests), God will give you everything you want. As we all know, this doesn’t happen. So we have to go back to the ancient religion of the Great Mother to understand it. If we change, “the Lord” to the Great Mother or Mother God, then the meaning becomes clear. If we accept that Mother God loves us unconditionally, then She will off course want to care for us and give us everything we want and desire, and this is exactly what this Psalm is all about.
So if Mother God loves us all unconditionally and wants to give us everything we want, why are we not receiving this? The only reason is that we all have freewill and so we have the freewill to turn our backs on Mother God and not allow ourselves to receive her blessing. This seems to be a crazy thing to do, so why would we want to do this?
We can understand this behaviour, in our own children. Sooner or later children rebel against their mother, because they want to learn how to care for themselves. This was explained clearly in parable by Jesus called the Prodigal Son.
New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Lost Son
11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.
13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.
17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’
28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’
31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”
This parable makes a lot more sense, if the father was a mother, because it is more acceptable that the mother will give her son unconditional love in spite of his foolishness. The point that Jesus was trying to make, is that we are all prodigal sons and daughters.
We are all children of Mother God, who cared for us all. But there came a time when we wanted to be independent of Mother God, so we could find ourselves. So we were born into a world, where we could do this. In the past this wasn’t a problem because people then worshipped the Great Mother and through this worship we could contact Her whenever we needed Her. So, at any time the people could receive Her help and wisdom. Yet, for many there came a desire from some people to want even greater independence, so male god was created. This is because the male, being different from the divine feminine was better able to cut himself off from Mother God. So it was men who lead the way, away from Mother God, into total independence. This was because the new god was a false god, because it was far removed from the divine spirit of Mother God. So the people could no longer receive the help and wisdom they received from Mother God through worshipping it. Yet, people all over the world worshipped this male god, because through it, they could become truly independent of Mother God.
So without the help and wisdom of our Mother, the lives of the whole human race deteriorated, and we began to experience, conflict, injustice, fear, hatred, violence and suffering. But instead of wanting to look for help from our mother we stubbornly turned our backs on Her, and tried to solve all these problem for ourselves. Over time all knowledge of the ancient Great Mother was lost, or deliberately destroyed by the priesthood of the male gods. So the people now no longer know how to contact Mother God, to receive her help and wisdom.
The people can only return to the Great Mother by first acknowledging that She exists, then they have to be aware that Mother God loves them all unconditionally, and then be aware that Mother God will give us all everything we want and desire.
Many people find this difficult to understand, because they have been brought up to believe in patriarchal doctrine which is very different from this. All patriarchal religions are about laws, rules and dogma, to the degree people assume we need rules and laws to live together. So it becomes a shock to realise that Mother God has no interest in imposing any rules and laws upon us. This is because the ancient religion of the Great Mother was a religion of love. If we love others, then we have no desire to harm, cheat, or abuse others, and if we love ourselves we will not allow others to harm us.
Rasa Von Werder:
There is an important balance between loving our neighbor & ourselves, we must love both. There is a lot we can do for our neighbor, at times, the saints became martyrs for the sake of love!
But Jesus in some of your quotes is stating the law of the Spirit rather than the law of the flesh. The flesh is harsh, it brings judgment. If someone hurts you, you hurt them back.
But when you love God, & love yourself & others spiritually, you work by another law. In the world of Spirit, no matter what others do to you, they can’t really hurt you, because they cannot touch the God within you, beyond your soul. There you are safe.
God wants you to dwell in the God within/Sanctum Sanctorum, knowing THIS IS WHO YOU ARE – you are ALWAYS SAFE HERE & so, try as they might, your Divine Life is always PERFECT, SAFE, HAPPY & SECURE.
Rules and laws are only needed in societies where there is not a lot of love. Loving and caring people, automatically co-operate with each other and work together for the good of everyone. This means that, strict laws and rules, as well as rewards and punishment are only needed when people do not love each other. Patriarchal religions are aware of this and have laws like, “love god” or “love thy neighbour”, but laws and doctrine cannot make people love others, if they are incapable of doing this.
Unfortunately, it is the lack of love in our world, that also cuts us off from Mother God, because She is pure love. Many women find it easy to love others through their maternal instincts, but find it more difficult to love themselves. This is why many women will put up with abusive men, because they love these men more than they love themselves. Also it is this lack of love for themselves in many women, that doesn’t allow them to tune into the love vibrations of Mother God.
Rasa Von Werder:
Indeed it comes from that syndrome where the slave masters taught a part of the gospel to their slaves,
“Obey your masters...be a good slave.”
Women have to learn to stop SELF SACRIFICING FOR MEN & start DISCIPLINGING THEM, it will do them good!
But women CANNOT DISCIPLINE MEN WHEN MEN HAVE ALL THE MONEY & WOMEN MUST BEND THE KNEE TO GET IT!
It has been A 150 YEAR EFFORT – the feminist revolution – where women have thrown off the shackles of men, have gotten free for education & employment. They are starting to HAVE MORE MONEY & men will bend their knee for it – THEN WOMEN WILL HAVE THE AUTHORITY TO TELL THEM WHAT TO DO, OR ELSE, THEY DON’T GET REWARDED.
Many men have the opposite problem, a lot of men find it easy to love themselves but don’t have a lot of love for others. So this time, it is this lack of love for others that cuts men off from the love vibrations of Mother God.
Rasa Von Werder:
“Love” is such a general word, easily confused. Let us say this – males have had it good too long, women have suffered long enough, it’s time to turn the tables. Males must learn to humble themselves, women must teach men to be humble. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS DONE WITHOUT A FIGHT.
Men at times STUBBORNLY STAND UP TO WOMEN & WOMEN MUST SHOW THEM WHO’SE THE BOSS, BY NOT BACKING DOWN.
Only today, a man tried to stand up to me. I browbeat him soundly & my last remark was,
“I am number one in the world for female empowerment, what are you?”
“I am a used car salesman,”
he said, in jest I suppose. For the second time when confronting me, this man left the room, I did not leave the room, he was humbled.
When next he sees me, he will know I am the dominant person.
This means that both women and men have to learn how to love themselves and others at the same time, to tune into the perfect love of Mother God.
As the mystics tell us, “god is with us in everything we do”. Mother God loves us unconditionally and wants to give us everything we desire, but She can only do this while we are in a state of love. So a woman can experience love through her maternal instincts but cut off the love of Mother God when she doesn’t love herself.
Rasa Von Werder:
Good point. When the woman allows the man to beat her, browbeat her, verbally or in any way abuse her, She is not showing the dominance of Mother God or her own Divine Authority, she SINKS INTO THE FLESH where the male gender wants her to be. She MUST ASSERT HER DIVINE NATURE, her Divine Nature has chosen her as the Mother of men, the representative of Mother God, & human males ARE HER CHILDREN, NOT HER BOSSES.
Likewise a man can do the opposite by loving himself but again cut off the love of Mother God when he can’t love others.
So the religion of the Ancient Great Mother only taught love. This is because the more we learn to love ourselves and love others the greater harmony we will have in our world.
It is through learning perfect love that we can return to Mother God and receive her help and wisdom.
Rasa Von Werder:
William, you are teaching here what a religion of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is, & it applies to all great religions at their mystical core & to that of our Mother God religion.
You also explain how in order for women to be true to their Divine Nature, what God intended, they must assert their self love & authority. By the opposite pole, males, in order to be in harmony with their Divine Nature, must be humble before women & Mother God.
These are good teachings.
