Could the problems that face the world today be traced to todays Religions - my answer is YES undoubtedly

Research now shows that beyond a doubt once God was a woman - that the ME and beyond was once a peaceful place where women and men lived in a divine relationship with each other and the natural world

Today so much of who we are as human beings has been lost - today we live in a world that is NOT heaven on earth despite thousands of years of religious rhetoric and dogma proclaiming love and peace

what is uncovered in our ancient past is that once upon a time a divine partnerships of woman and men = masculine/feminine were in a divine balance with all life - and then something changed to alter that and we have now ended up with a world on the brink of disaster because of it

neither men nor women fully comprehend who they are because the biggest lie ever perpetrated on humanity has been to tell them they are sinful and that women are cursed to suffer and bleed in pain - and that all who are born through the body of woman is sinful - an old belief yes ...but one very much alive - albeit hidden in the treatment of women and men today

i have no intention here of creating further division between the dysfunction that exists between the culturally entrained male and female - rather i seek to bring balance and divine complementary partnership BACK into the discourse

i seek conversation on this as i am proposing an audio visual presentation in 3 parts - the first will be - when god was a woman ....to expand our limiting view of ourselves ....

    the system we live within is male defined on all levels - its been termed patriarchy for this reason - the religious male right has dominated every thing and defined women along very narrow lines - this becomes stunningly evident when - as a woman you feel you are contorting yourself to fit a role you really don't feel comfortable being and start searching because something deep within you tells you this is not who you are - not fully - not really - and so you search and search and you find that you are not the first woman to feel this or to search so you discover that many women have gone searching for what they felt was missing - who felt they could not conform to the narrow lines that the male world had ascribed for us and what was found was shocking

    the contrast between how women where once respected and her power celebrated and how she now has been defined and limited along very narrorw lines defiend by men - via religious doctrine was stunning and vast

    here her true nature was discovered - she could breath again in this knowledge woman found solace from the deeply limiting and self negating roles they had been ascribed - and even though we live in the 21st century this knowledge is not widely known - but women every where even young women today feel the loss of it so deep they keep seeking 'women's rights ..they seek but they don't really know what they are missing - because so few know the truth

    the goddess was the symbol of the unity out of which ALL LIFE COMES the great cosmic mother which was represented by the feminine form a large bellied breasted woman was to the ancients the true creatix for out of her came all life - un prejeducided ...contrast this with todays world where still little girls are killed or left to die

    in those time there was partnership where both men and women knew themselves - where whore or harlot and haram meant temples for women - where virign simply meant strong independent woman
