The Power and Path of the Divine Feminine

Personally and collectively we are finding that the nature of this planet's crisis requires nothing less than expanding our capacity to relinquish control and follow the lead of a consciousness that is beyond the known and egoic self. Many of us are finding this through the Path of (the return of) the Divine Feminine.

Historically and mythologically humankind finds itself calling upon Her only in times of greatest crisis and trouble. (this would be the "I want my mommy" plea, heard even from great men when the limits are pushed beyond what they can handle or control. we have all felt this way at one time or another, and still probably often do.) For it is SHE, with the ferocity and love of the wise, fierce and fearless Mother, who can and knows how to restore order from the deepest darkness and most lost and destructive forces of the night. (a.k.a. forces that have lost their conscious way.) 

As we learn individually to let go and allow ourselves to be guided and held by the Divine Mother each step of the way, and this is a beautiful path and place to be when we reach and attain It, we may also see that it is She who can also collectively guide us, and this lost planet, successfully home to order again. We are in dire need of collectively summoning and invoking the Power of Her. To-get-her.

"I believe we need to learn how to collectively surrender to not knowing, to give up control and step into relation with Divine mystery, to the sacred which exists within life and within the endless infinite nothingness beyond life. We need a response that takes us beyond ourselves."
