AN EARTH DAY EXCERPT - A DOG'S EYE VIEW
Ziggy put his paws over his floppy black ears. He knew what was coming. He knew the Professor was ready to launch into one of his long tirades and he couldn't bear to hear it. It was just too painful for his sensitive ears. He had heard there were places on the earth that were messed up. Word had gotten around. His friends had told him. The birds, who traveled back and forth through the seasons, flying everywhere over water and land, had seen it. Bird told Rabbit. Rabbit had been frightened when he told the gentle deer. And Deer had told Ziggy. Something awful was happening in these places called cities.
The squirrels were gathering more nuts than they needed, afraid there wouldn't be any more trees. Their friends the frogs were disappearing and no one knew why. They needed the frogs! They're the ones who sing to the thunder being. Their song brings on the rain.
Everyone was talking about it. They told Ziggy the problem was his friends, the humans. They were taking up more space than the Great Universal Source had allotted them. Turtle said the humans should learn to slow down and look around. Snake said some of their poisons would wake them up soon enough. Spider said not to worry. The humans had created a web and gotten caught in it. But some of them would see their way out. They could see the light, the weaving of the whole universe. And after all, even flying insects knew to go to the light, didn't they?
Welcome to the Living Goddess Tradition page in iPeace. Thank you very much for accepting my invitation to be my friend, I am grateful that we can now share friendship. We hope that we can be supportive in your spiritual journey.
For Peace to prevail again both woman and man must seriously re-evaluate the position of women in contemporary societies. In the early times there has been a society based around a Goddess Religion. Societies of the time were peaceful, agrarian lifestyle. As such, we must first work toward removing gender imbalance, which is still glaringly obvious in modern society.
In all of this, for peace to prevail, women must be worshiped as a Goddess, as she too is part of the Great Mother Goddess, thus making her worthy of being worshiped. When society was based around a Goddess Religion, women were worshiped as Goddesses.
The important of the Goddess as a symbol of motherhood has to be felt and understood. All being ever been born or ever to be born will experience its mother as “numinous” (suffused with a feeling of Divinity). A women’s love must be absolutely free from selfishness, otherwise it does not produce proper motherhood, as the mother influences the future generation. If the fire has no flame it cannot give light, and smoke comes out of it, which is troublesome for the future generation. Such is selfish love.
Love and wisdom create harmony between man and woman; but these being absent, harmony ceases to exist. Without harmony, one cannot have peace. Ardh-narishwara, hermaphroditic deity incorporating male (Shiva) and female (Shakti) qualities, symbolic of the bipolarity of the human body. In The Living Goddess Tradition, the right side of the body considered male and the left side female. This is true for both men and women. Love can only exist, when one connects with one’s soul, and then realize the God (male), Goddess (female) within. Men’s fascination with women as a source of life, has been known from the beginning of time, yet men in modern society, due to his rushed life have forget the art of worshiping a woman as his Goddess, for his betterment. Woman on the other hand are busy to make their mark in the world, have forget that they are the life giving essence, the same essence as the Great Goddess of Creation, Para-Sakthi.
Let us together find peace within and then world peace.
It is indeed a great pleasure hearing from you. To know more about our work please visit the following pages listed below.
We have set-up three social networks to help balance the gender imbalance.
1. The Living Goddess Tradition: http://goddesstradition.ning.com/
The Living Goddess Tradition is very much alive in India, and it time to take this very way of life to the West. In the past 2,000 years, Christians, Judaism, and Muslims, and most recently the Communists, conspired to wipe out our memories clean of tens of thousands of years of Goddess spirituality, and thus women lost their sacredness. It is time for women to reclaim their sacredness, and to worship all women again as the Living Goddess. Mother Earth has to become the domain of the Mother Goddess, only then will peace and harmonious living prevail as it was before the monotheist religions
2. The Mahavidya School (Children of India) http://mahavidya-girl-school.ning.com
We like to create a safe, loving environment for the next generation of Mothers to gain the tools and confidence to bless their communities with the Grace and Love of the Divine Mother, as Living Goddesses. For when a Mother is divine the home is heaven. When she is not, all hell breaks loose!
3. Shri Param Eswaran and Para-Tan Sound Healing.
"Para-Tan sound healing a part of Tantra, used by Tantrika to attain emotional freedom, regain self-esteem, eliminate issues of grief and anger, and prevent themselves from becoming victims of prostate cancer for men, breast cancer and ovarian cancer for women, chronic fatigue, depression, menstrual disorder, anxiety, sexual blocks and other emotionally related illness
Hope to see you at our network, giving me the opportunity for me to share with you my vision.
May the Divine Mother cradle you in Her Love and Light

"Love is like the fire; it glow is devotion, its flame is wisdom, its smoke is attachment, and its ashes detachment. When love’s fire produces its flame it illuminates the soul".( Hazrat Inyat Khan)
