Beyond God the Father (excerpt)

Why indeed must “God” be a noun? Why not a verb—the most active and dynamic of all? Hasn’t the naming of “God” as a noun been an act of murdering that dynamic Verb? And isn’t the Verb infinitely more personal than a mere static pronoun?  The anthropomorphic symbols for God may be intended to convey personality, but they fail to convey that God is Be-ing. Women now who are experiencing the shock of non-being and the surge of self-affirmation against this are included to perceive transcendence as the Verb in which we particapate—live, move, and have our being.   —Mary Daly


The Divine Spiral  (excerpt)

The importance of the Goddess symbol for women cannot be overstressed. The image of the Goddess,  inspires women to see ourselves as divine, our bodies as sacred, the changing phases of our lives as holy, our aggression as healthy, our anger as purifying, and our power to nurture and create, but also to limit and destroy when necessary,  as the very force that sustains all life. Through the Goddess, we can discover our strength,  enlighten our minds, own our bodies, and celebrate our emotions. We can move beyond narrow, constricting roles and become whole.

The Goddess is also important for men. The oppression of men in Father God-ruled patriarchy is perhaps less obvious but no less tragic than that of women. Men are encouraged to identify with a model no human being can successfully emulate: to be minirulers of narrow universes. They are internally split, into a “spiritual” self that is supposed to conquer their baser animal and emotional natures. They are at war with themselves in the West, to “conquer” sin, in the East, to “conquer” desire or ego. Few escape from these wars undamaged.



Meditations with Julian of Norwich  (excerpt)

God wants to be thought of

as our Lover

I must see myself so bound in love

as if everything that has been done

has been done for me.

That is to say,

the Love of God makes such a unity

in us

that when we see this unity

no one is able to separate oneself

from another

—Julian of Norwich

May the goddesses bring love and peace to all hearts and peace to all souls

10 Small Acts of Kindness That Will Make a Big Difference

Some ways you can create so peace in the world

Let's Reach Success

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”

 When was the last time you did a good deed? Without expecting anything in return? Just like that…

If you don’t remember, I’m afraid you’ve drifted apart from the real human nature. You’ve fallen into the trap of today’s society and have come to the point where you do good to someone only when you want something back or have other stimulus to do so.

But if you do, you certainly remember the incredible feelings you get after that. Because that is what good means in its original meaning. That is how our soul and mind work when not affected by outer temptations and tendencies like consumerism and egoism. That is how we were meant to communicate with one another – by doing good, being kind, helping whenever we can and never expecting anything in return.

By being…

The Elephant Documentary

24 July 2013

Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species are recognised, the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species (L. africana and L. cyclotis respectively). Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, and South and Southeast Asia. They are the only surviving proboscideans; extinct species include mammoths and mastodons. The largest living terrestrial animals, male African elephants can reach a height of 4 m (13 ft) and weigh 7,000 kg (15,000 lb). These animals have several distinctive features, including a long proboscis or trunk used for many purposes…

Have a Happy Week

Information abounds

Yellingrosa Weblog

I had just bought BlogPad Pro offline editor for my iPad. I decided to give a try to this editor because of its spell checker. Before this I have used Blogsy offline blog editor for iPad. It worked fine but after the use of the WordPress own texture all the settings disappeared and I have to set them again online. Windows Live Writer instead is capable of doing the code that doesn’t loose its form when the WordPress texture is used. I hope that BlogPad will come up to Windows Live Writer. That is another reason for this purchase. On the prize tag was written 4’49 euros which is some 5’50 US dollars.

In order to make this blog post a little  funnier, I add one of my free English postcard for you to use privately. Please don’t make any changes on it. I believe your family members, friends and…
