Mother of us All

from friend, poet and PaGaian con-spirator Eileen Haley … remembering our Mother:

Mother’s Day greetings, people of Goddess. We pay honour to the ancient Mother of us all and of all life, the wellspring; we remember the times of the Great Mother Goddess. We remember when birth was sacred, one of the most sacrosanct events of the people’s religion. Sacred the amniotic fluid, sacred the milk of breasts. When all water sources were Hers – lakes, rivers, springs, wells and rain clouds. When the female body was honoured as the Goddess Creatrix. When the Earth was honoured as the body of the Goddess, constantly creating new life from Herself. We remember that time; we work that it may come again.

With gratitude to Marija Gimbutas’s The Living Goddesses.
