Divinity The Goddess

Between the pages with the Hermetic Laws and the Elements is my Divinity Section. I am having a hard time with it simply because I am having a hard time articulating all of it. I thought I would “think out loud” so to speak and write some here to see if I could come to some writings that I like. First I will tell you that my book is set up to have one page on The One/ The All/ Dryghtnyn, followed by four pages for the Goddess and four for the God. For this post or writing I am going to mostly concentrate on The Goddess but I am trying to explain the over all Divine as well. And really they are all connected so you can’t have the Goddess with out the God or the One.

If you read before time was, you can see that in the beginning, before time was there was The One. Who was everything and nothing. The Goddess and God were created of The One and By the One. This its self is important because it speaks to the duality of everything and that as we know energy never dies it just is formed in different ways. So the God and Goddess are the One and The One is the twin forms of the Goddess and God.

The Goddess chose the Moon as her symbol and we talk of her in her different lunar phases, as the Triple Goddess. Waxing to full to waning or Maiden Mother Crone. Really we are speaking of the cycle of life creation preservation and destruction only to start a new. The Moon does have so much of a pull on what happens on the Earth, the tides and water flow at the influence of the Moon. Women bleed with the moon and we know that Humans from the beginning of our time have followed the moon and starts and sun to track time. We also are just learning that our ancestors tracked the time of the moon to harvest shell fish in abundance, which lead to the development of our brain. The Moon and Sun are very much vital to our existence.

The Goddess and God are not metaphors, they are real. The Divine energy that is in all things is both female and male. Sometimes we get confused and we see the Goddess as a human woman. Perhaps she appears to us in this form in visions. If she does it is a relation on how we choose to see her for the Goddess is not just Goddess to us, she is again in everything. She IS everything. We call her Great Mother not because femaleness is regulated to the creation of children, but because she is the mother and Creator of all. Her energy flows through everything giving it life and energy. When we talk of her in her Maiden aspect we are talking about the power that is growing and the newness of things. New ideas taking shape in our mind or realities. We are talking about the creation aspect.  Similarly when we speak of her as the Crone or the destruction aspect we see her as one that knows all, and has much to teach.  The cycle must always complete itself for it is the very rhythm of life.  We may speak of her in as the Triple Goddess and perhaps we speak of one aspect but the other two are always present as well. She is the bondless female energy in all things.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
