I’ve wondered why, if we attend a church service during the day, we see mostly women. This is still true today, when many women also work outside the home. Is it easier for women to have faith that a divine hand is at work in our lives? Perhaps. It surely is easier to connect with the miraculous after two tiny seeds have grown together inside you to become a tiny person who, through another unique process, is specially delivered into our lives and unto the world. Maybe we tap the river of faith because we are generally more intuitive. Maybe the male of our species will become more intuitive as we make the shift in consciousness to a gentler way of expression. Maybe we females will gain more confidence and shift away from victimization and pleading for attention.
Is a shift really happening? We find ourselves at the end of a 26,000 year cycle of time and that seems significant. What have we learned in the last 26,000 years? Somewhere along the way, we lost contact with the Divine Feminine and God became He Who Is All That Is, at least on our planet. How did that happen? Did some marauding, power-hungry man lead tens of thousands of soldiers across great continents, destroying temples dedicated to the Divine Mother? Did this marauder grow impatient with the ideas of compassion and cooperation and destroy the records of periods of peace? Did he pound his chest and say, “If there is a god, he’s male! These women had better come to their senses! All that I can see, wherever I am, is mine!” Evidence of God also as feminine is not abundant–though some does exist, enough to say yes, at some point a feminine God was worshipped on Earth and life was generally peaceful. Perhaps when her reign ended, the period of the Old Testament began.
We humans seem to project qualities of ourselves onto God. Is this why the squabbling Greek and Roman gods came to be? Did we make them up, or did they actually exist because the Great God of Love made them, too? To rule us because we had become animal-like war-makers? Who knows? All we can know for certain is that which we find in the quiet place of Love within. If we learn to tap peace, in the silence of the heart, and we spread our knowing, we will make a wonderful 26,000-year-shift into a higher way of being that means there is enough food, water, space, Love and compassion for all of us humans–because dynamic creativity has been unleashed.
