30 Apr THE CHARGE OF THE GODDESS
“It’s daylight, the sky is cloudy, and human beings believe that beyond the clouds lives an all-powerful God, guiding the fate of men. Meanwhile, look at your son, look at your feet, listen to the sounds around you: down here is the Mother, so much closer, bringing joy to children and energy to those who walk over her body. Why do people prefer to believe in something far away and forget what is there before their eyes, a true manifestation of the miracle?”
THE CHARGE OF THE GODDESS
Listen to the words of the Great Goddess, who throughout time has been known by many names.
Assemble in a sacred place of your own making when the Moon is full,
and any other time you have need of My aid.
Know that My love will make you free, for nobody can prevent your worship of Me in your mind and your heart.
Listen well when you worship, and I will teach you the deep mysteries, ancient and powerful.
I require no sacrifices or pain,
for I am the Mother of all things, the Creatress who made you out of My love,
and the One who endures through all time.
I am the beauty of the Earth, the green of growing things.
I am the white Moon whose light is full among the stars and soft upon the Earth.
From Me all things are born, to Me all things, in their seasons return.
Let My worship be in your hearts, for all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.
You see Me in the love of man and woman, the love of parent and child,
the love of humans to all My creations.
When you create with your hands, I am there.
I blow the breath of life into the seeds you plant, whether of plant of child.
I stand beside you always, whispering soft words of wisdom and guidance.
You need only to listen. All seekers of the Mysteries must come to Me,
for I am the True Source, the Keeper of the Cauldron.
All who seek to know Me, know this…
All your seeking and yearning will be in vain unless you understand the Mystery that if what you seek is not found within, you will never find it without.
For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I will gather you to my breast at the end.

THE GODDESS THROUGHOUT HERSTORY::
“This phrase is used to describe a number of goddesses of various cultures, all of which share a similar identification with wild places and the animals that live therein. A form of the great mother goddess who births and cares for humanity, this Lady usually is found in cultures where game animals provide a significant part of the diet. Not surprisingly, she is often a goddess of birth as well, invoked for aid by human mothers, but also invoked to encourage animal reproduction. Where a culture has begun to move into agriculture, the Lady often adds rulership of vegetation to her original identity as mother of animals.”
