Dear Great Goddess,

Please help the world wake up and see something it seems totally blind to: That the earth and everything on it is being scorched by a mindset that has spread like cancer across the planet.

This mindset is "... so ready to denigrate life on earth as to risk its destruction, whether quickly through war or slowly through pollution."

Since the central theme of this mindset IS war, destruction, pain and devastation, people who hold it actually attract war, destruction, pain and devastation -- just as magnets attract metal.

George W. Bush holds this mindset -- the very same held by Osama bin Laden. Bush and bin Laden worship the same deity: the god of Abraham, YahwehAllahJehovah.

For millennia this god has told his followers to kill all who fail to fall on their knees in front of him. The result? 53% of the world now worships him.*

And now, as I see it, this god has gone schizophrenic. After splitting himself in two, he's ordered his two halves to pulverize one another.

And this is exactly what Bush and bin Laden have been working feverishly on: the annihilation of each other (and along with them, of course, the rest of us).

Three days after 9-11, "Bush, standing in the soaring space of the National Cathedral and invoking God, declared his purpose: 'to answer these attacks and rid the world of evil.'"

The god of Bush and bin Laden's says the world is coming to an end. This is why Bush is totally unconcerned about global warming and always has been. It's not man-made -- it's god-made. Nothing we can do about it.

It explains why he's cool as a cuke as the world economy crumbles in his face. God's will. Nothing I can do about it. Ho-hum.

It explains why he did next to nothing about Katrina. God's will -- who am I to stand in the way of what God wants?

Pull out of Iraq? Why? That's where the apocalypse will happen! We can't pull out. On the contrary -- we need to spread ourselves thicker over there. Into Iran, Syria, Israel.

I was holding my breath, dear Mother, until November, when we would sweep this sickness at least out of the White House. Now, in Sarah Palin, Queen of "Spiritual Warfare," I'm seeing the same sickness staring me in the face once again.**

Great Goddess, what do you have in mind for us? Will the world, like New York's Twin Towers, fall in on itself before people finally wake up and see their real problem is the sickness that is YahwehAllahJehovah?

Is that what it's going to take to make people wake up and shake off the sickness? To replace it (if they want religion at all) with the healthy, healing, non-violent, non-hierarchical religions of the Neolithic and early Bronze Age -- religions that centered around you, a Mother Goddess who, like all mothers, wants nothing except for her children be kind to one another?

Great Mother, please at least let the seeds of knowledge about you be sewn before the implosion (if that's what you have in mind). Then when the world picks up the pieces again, it will at least understand Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Zeusism and all the rest as the incendiary sicknesses they are, and will shun them like a plague of cancers.

Love, hugs and kisses,
Your Athana
