“The Great Mother is the source of all life and all death. She gives and She takes away. She plants, harvests, and cuts down. She is the womb from which all are born, and the womb to which all return at death. The Goddess is the black and white egg Mother, She is dark and bright, She bears and kills. Ancient cultures knew and honored both sides of her coin, the modern West has chosen to deny the dark. Existence is a cycle of movement from light to darkness and to light again. Is life the brightness or the dark, is death the darkness or the light? Both are one. Without death there would be no life, and there would be no birth without death.” ~ Understanding the Soul’s Journey by Diane Stein
Then Issa said, “Reverence woman, mother of the universe. In her lies the truth of creation. She is the foundation of all that is good and beautiful. She is the source of life and death. Upon her lies the life of man, because she is the succor of his labors. She gives birth to you in travail, she watches over your growth. Until her very death you bring anguish to her. Bless her. Honor her. She is your only friend and sustenance upon earth. Reverence her. Defend her. Love your wives and honor them, because tomorrow they shall be mothers, and later – the mothers of the human race. Their love ennobles man, soothes the embittered heart and tames the beast. Wife and mother – invaluable treasure.
“As light divides itself from darkness, so does woman possess the gift to divide in man good intent from the thought of evil. Your best thoughts must belong to woman. Gather from them your moral strength, which you must possess to sustain your near ones. Do not humiliate her, for therein you will humiliate yourselves. And all which you will do to mother, to wife, to widow or to another woman in sorrow-that shall you also do for the Spirit.
“Not far hence is the time when by the Highest Will the people will become purified and united into one family.” ~ The Aquarian Gospel of Christ, The Lost Years of Jesus
