“As this era of masculine dominance comes to an end and a feminine understanding of life’s wholeness is included, we are beginning to experience a different world in which physical, mental, and spiritual well-being are interdependent.
We see the signs of this in the new age movement.
But the new age movement is often limited by its focus on individual well-being.
Our real concern is the well-being of the planet and the whole of humanity.
Central to this is the understanding that the physical world cannot be healed from a solely physical perspective, but requires a shift to an attitude that contains a multi-dimensional approach.”
Roses flower in abundance, grown from a couple of tyres…
These scented roses on the veranda at Bealtaine Cottage surround the image of Madonna and child, hand carved from wood.
The Divine Feminine is honoured.
Poppies in bloom at Bealtaine Cottage this morning
Images of the Divine Feminine are found in all world religions.
A limited and patriarchal interpretation of the Creator, has given us a male figure, with the female as subservient.
Dominance of Nature and continuous war has ensued, with millions being slaughtered every century, in the name of the patriarchal god.
This continues even today in these so-called enlightened times, with God being invoked continuously by political leaders!
I reject this damnation of the Divine.
Herbs in the permaculture gardens of Bealtaine Cottage
Not in my name!
This is why I plant and plant…
The realm of the Divine Feminine is allowed to manifest here at Bealtaine Cottage.
Mother Earth is honoured in all that is planted.
Her voice is heard in all that grows here at Bealtaine Cottage, reminding us all of the sacredness of life and the oneness of humanity, as we listen to the gentle coaxing of the universal Mother. In this new, Aquarian Age, the power is shifting back towards a balance between male and female.
Old ways will, inevitably end.
What we put in their place is our own determining at this point.
One aspect of this change is learning to speak out courage from our hearts, by harnessing the power of intuitive living and reacting…we know when something is wrong!
Believe in the belief that we are NOT separated from God.
We are all a part of the Creator, like this little Bee on the perennial Cornflower at Bealtaine Cottage this morning.
We carry God within us and manifest the Divine in unconditional love, compassion, nurturing, and protecting the life force of Earth.
We manifest the Divine Feminine by the good we do.
During nine years of planting Eden into a man made monoculture, this message has become clear to me.
I dedicate the rest of my life to the continuation of this work, for, it is through our actions that the Divine Feminine is allowed to manifest.
