I have found it - Eureka! It is the "general theory" of Matriarchy,
akin to the "general theory" Einstein was looking for but never found.
It awakened in me like this. There were a few steps.
First step, I checked the statistics on what people were reading on my
site, www.womanthouartgod.com. Posting on spiritual groups, I
expected they would be reading spiritual articles. Hahaha! Over a
period of three weeks, daily, as I searched the stats, they were
reading the same things - 1400 people a day from spiritual sites were
reading 'Is Sex a Sin?'
Illustrated with nude photos. Then they looked at the galleries - not
grace or strength galleries, but 'Woman Thou Art Beauty.' Then they
read, or looked at, 'What's Wrong With Women',
illustrated with beautiful sexy women wrestling, then fourth, the
statistics says it's back to 'Is Sex a Sin' and again, the galleries.
Nowhere in the top ten are listed the spiritual or highest minded
articles! The Beatific Vision is passed over, How to Pray, How to
Build a Church, Yoga and Mystical Union with God are passed over, and
so are all the Pastor Letters. Now you could understand, had I posted
to the general public, you would say,
'Of course, most people (especially men) are low minded, faces in the
dirt sort of blokes.'
But where I posted were the HIGHEST MINDED SORT OF PEOPLE - the
spirituality groups where they are speaking things concerning God;
Enlightenment, Self Realization, Yoga, Buddhism and Feminine Divine
groups. These are the best people. And when they get to my site -
this is what they look at. Now me scratches head, and after seeing
this day after day, I decides,
'These are not pigs....this is human nature. For some reason, mortals
want to look at pictures of beautiful women and read (if they are
reading!) the articles that are illustrated with beautiful (nude as
possible) women. Now I move on.
I then go through about 10,000 yahoo groups, seeking new places to
join and post. I go a bit off the beaten path. Not spirituality this
time, but normal stuff like bodybuilding, sexy women, dominating
women, women in boots, muscles of women, wrestling females, and so on.
Now I see something again, that creates a spark. I find SHRINES,
yes, shrines, to women, all over the place. I find men are in love
with a certain female, whoever she may be - famous or unknown. They
open a group for her and each one says she is the most beautiful woman
in the world. Some of these shrines are dead, unvisited for years,
but they stand there like mausoleums to lost love. Now I find the
famous women, like bodybuilders. These women have the biggest
membership. The average top female bodybuilder has about two
thousand members. As the norm for a spirituality site is maybe 150 -
this is a big difference! I find the groups with the most members
are usually dealing with exceptional women (be they muscles, beauty,
wrestling or the like) and also dealing with sex or dating or
relationships - where men have hopes of meeting women. I move on, and
on and on through thousands upon thousands of these groups in numerous
categories of females. My conclusion after straining my eyes for
weeks and now being a part of 600 groups is the following:
Men are building groups for women - sometimes sincerely, because they
love them, and sometimes not sincerely, but only with the hope of
drawing members for money. (Women, on the other hand, are not opening
groups for men.) Each of these sincere men that open such a spot
proclaims his women the greatest of them all - true love. This could
be anyone - an Asian wrestler (there are many!) or a Playboy sexpot,
or a deeply-muscled femme - each male declares her the epitoment of
all womankind. There is adoration here, there is worship. (Yet, on
the other hand, you do not see the reverse. You do not see women
opening groups for men and adoring them.
I put this inside my thinking cap.)
Now methinks of many things. Of boots, and whips and sealing
lips.....no, just kidding. I begin to think, understandably why all
this is. Why are spiritual people looking at women instead of
spiritual articles? At least first, then maybe later, I imagine they
might get to the more "worthwhile" stuff. And the shrines.....why the
shrines? Why so many? Why the obsession with beautiful women?
Now many things sort of hit me at once, like a computer search that
brings many answers in a minute. There are things I have known and
observed in many areas. Let me give one example.
In the documentary "The Goddess Remembered," I recall how they stated
that out of all the Catholic Churches, who are they named after the
most? Is it Jesus? No - it is Mary, His Virgin Mother. The
filmmakers state that the yearning for God as Mother resulted in MANY
MORE CHURCHES BEING NAMED AFTER MARY THAN JESUS CHRIST.
Then I think of the field of femdom. Men wanting strong women -
obviously looking for their mother. It is a fanatically strong
In the nether world of the "sex trade" women's body parts are
obsessively studied, from breasts, to buns, to vaginas, to legs, to
now, even muscles.
Then somewhere, the answer just sort of hits me. Just appears. And
here is now my argument, and my general theory of Matriarchy,
appearing by the grace of our MotherGod.
GENERAL THEORY OF MATRIARCHY
Once, long ago, there was Matriarchy. But something happened to it.
It was 'destroyed,' - or was it? It was crushed, beaten, outlawed, by
the powers of brute force. Patriarchy then took its place. Women
were held down, controlled by force, and made to serve men. Men then
religious myths, and out of that came the common law, and then the
real law we live by, and all the rules and regulations and norms of
society - all or almost all - in favor of men.
What then happened to women's religion, or Matriarchy? It was still
there, for a long time. It existed before Jesus and after Jesus, and
much of it stayed side by side with ancient Christianity. It was not
prevalent or mainstream, but it was there. A lot of the Old Testament
ranting against 'false idols' had to do with Goddess worship, and
most of what the Catholic Church condemned as 'heresies' dealt with
same. Then from the 1400's up until the 1700's came the 'Women's
Holocaust,' - 'The Inquisition.' Here women were systematicaly
tortured and killed, from six to nine million of them, to try and
eradicate Matriarchal tendencies. It worked by moving the femminine
divine further underground, where it exists today, as a religion - in
secret and underground groups and covens. Wiccans, Pagans, Druids and
Gnostics are not mainstream churches, but they are sort of hidden and
'in the closet.'
Now what was going on in the mainstream? Business as usual. But
something interesting is taking place in this Patriarchal world. The
images of women are prevalent. Everywhere, images of women. Images
of women are used to sell, promote, and as products in themselves.
What has happened, I now realize, is the worship of MotherGod is still
mainstream, but unconscious. You cannot take a humanity that HUNGERS
AND THIRSTS FOR ITS MOTHER, AND MOTHERGOD, AND STOP IT FROM YEARNING
FOR WHAT IT WANTS AND NEEDS. It has never been a Father that humanity
has yearned for. This was taught, but it is not a fact. Humanity
yearns for its Mother. The mother is the font of life. She is the
egg, the womb, the nurturing breast, the unconditional love, the
affirmation, and she is the symbol and instrument of God. You can
kill millions of women, (and they have,) and you can make women's
religion anathema, (and they have,) but you can't change hearts. You
can't change the wired-up biology and psychology causing emotions -
and all the emotions yearn for MotherGod.
So what has happened, inadvertedly and unconsciously, is that people,
(and especially men,) are worshipping MotherGod through Her public
images. These images are on television, in magazines and books, and
on the internet. They are everywhere. Symbols and instruments of
MotherGod are everywhere also - the women - and men are going to them
for adoration, veneration and worship. Only they don't call it such.
They call it being 'fans,' 'slaves,' or 'friends.' The public
worship is what fascinates me here. It is the honor to women as
dominants, beauty queens and love goddesses, as muscle builders, as
glamour dolls and such that is exactly the same as worshipping images
of say, Kali, Lakshmi, Shakti, Hecate, Isis, or Whomever. The
religious worship is going on right in front of our noses, and our
faces. And I saw this in a flash.
THE WORSHIP OF BREASTS
It is quite logical and interesting that the prevalent worship, in
this country, is of the female's breasts. Breasts are the absolute
epitoment of maternal love. They are a truly powerful symbol.
European countries make fun of our preoccupation with this subject,
while we poke fun at Latins for liking derriers and thighs. For us,
it is apple pie and breasts.
So let us take a look at this. What are they, these breasts? Why do
we want them large and beautiful? (Of course, there are those who
like them small, but that's another story.) They are feeders. They
are survival - but more than that. When the infant is held in its
Mom's lap and fed from her breast, he gets more than milk. He gets
intimacy, closeness, nurturing. He gets the feeling of being loved,
belonging, being somehow needed. It coud be his helplessness that
attracts Mom, but whatever it is, he is needed!
When men worship breasts (of course they don't use that word, they say
'turned on') they go back to the time they were infants and cradled in
the arms of love. They remember that love, and it gives them comfort.
Loving breasts is the worship of MotherGod. Why do I jump from
physical Mom to MotherGod? Because it is the exact same yearning.
When we are infants we see our Mother, and later Dad, as invincible
creatures. We cannot imagine them falling apart, or dying or
something like that. They are there and we cannot imagine them
dissapearing. They are God - for a while. Later, our minds get bigger
and picture all sorts of things, and we fantasize about a bigger
Person - an all-encompassing Entity we call God. And then, we see
that MotherGod is the source of all life, not just ourselves.
