GODDESS SPELLS s-u-r-v-i-v-a-l
It’s 4000 BC. Worldwide, Mother Goddess is the central archetype. But suddenly, She turns deadly: the Sahara and the gigundo central-Asian deserts form.
Great masses of people starve. Salvation (rain) now comes from the sky, so people turn away from dry-as-a-bone Mother Earth, and toward moist Father Sky.
In groups where people share food, no one gets enough, and the group goes belly-up in a hurry.
In other groups, the strongest (young males), grab all the food for themselves, and these groups survive. A new way of life starts: strong men bashing the weak is not only okay, it’s all that gets you a pat on the back, a wink of the eye, a nod and a high-five.
Institutionalized warfare, slavery and inequality begin. And spread, eventually, via violent force, to even the still-green areas of the earth.
If we recognize and erase “Starvation Culture” (which still eats away at us today -- but subliminally) and turn back to Mother Earth as our guiding archetype, we could possibly dump and ditch war, inequality and environmental destruction – all the things that could be spelling our d-o-o-m.
Want more of this? Get your hands on a copy of Switching to Goddess: Humanity’s Ticket to the Future.
And get your local library to drop a copy on its shelves, too. The human race might just thank you for it.
Thanks to this webpage for the image of Mother Earth.
