History starts with the Egyptians about 4,000 BC
Before that it is pre-history. The great civilisations of Egypt and Greece revered the Goddess in all her many forms. Joseph Cambell suggests that before these civilisations the Goddess ruled. Later religions (especially Judaism) tended to convert the Goddess into something fearful or evil (Lilith).
Around 400 CE the Academies and Mystery schools were closed by decree. The last of the great female mysteriarchs, Hypatia was slaughtered in a way most foul. The great old religion flowing continuously from Ancient Egypt and the Near East became 'paganism'. (Pagani = country dwellers). Thus the old religion was only honoured away from the cities and the word 'pagan' became a term of abuse.
In her imaginative book Mists of Avalon, Marion Bradley shows how the patriarchal religions had an impact on consciousness and an awareness of the 'Goddess' gradually withdrew and was lost.
The journey deep into materialism had begun, with all its ramifications in the etheric and astral realms.
How should we understand The Goddess and Goddesses?
The Goddess is NOT a person
Goddesses are not and never have been people.
Goddesses are aspects of Pure Divinity
They are multiple emanations of the One Godhead beyond all Division.
They do not evolve, essentially unborn They ever are
They do not die and Their every act is loving perfection.
They have never left mankind
Mankind has forgotten Them.
They are Infinite Perfections
Unblemished repositories of Joy and Light.
In their Motherhood
They are our Mothers.
In their Maidenhood
Lies their purity and our hope of a return to Perfection.
In their sexuality they make Creation fecund with infinite possibility
Ensuring the perfect weaving of reality on the loom of life.
They have NO FORM
Their true names are HIDDEN
In their Infinite Darkness the One Light Shines Eternally
They are unshakable Law
They are our True Home.
