Who is "the Guiding Goddess"?

Guiding Goddess is my term for an important type of deity who existed in many if not most Neolithic societies (and on into some early Bronze-Age civilizations).

As supreme creator (of people, the earth, life on earth, other deities and the universe), the Guiding Goddess was a role model for people:

Just as a healthy mother loves her children, so the Guiding Goddess loved humanity.

And as She loved people, people were to love each other.

I believe this simple yet profound blueprint for behavior was what allowed Guiding-Goddess societies to avoid war, violence, social inequality, and governments of domination.
