"Eigenlijk zou het gehele Christendom met de vuilnisman mede
gegeven moeten worden. Maar dit in vertrouwen. Het rijk en de heerschappij en de glorie
herstellen van de Grote Moeder Godin, Haar tempels herstellen, Haar vuren en lampen
wederom ontsteken (...) Dat komt, kunstbroeder....Hoe Zij zal heten, dat weet nog
niemand...Diana? Artemis? Selene? Cybele? Astarte? Isis?....Maria? (...) Het is alleen uit
medelijden en pure goedheid dat ik me zo gek heb weten te krijgen tot de R.K. Kerk toe te
treden. Enkel en alleen, omdat Zij daar ondergedoken is, de Grote Godin, in het hol van
Haar doodsvijand, die het zelf niet eens weet..."
Gerard Reve "Het lieve leven"
to all MotherLoving people
ORIGINALS OF THE WORLD,
|The fact, that we have only a decade to save the
planet seems to paralyze mankind, rather than waking it up. Where can we find the insight,
the love and the power to stand up? Although there are many heroic individuals, struggling
for a noble cause, it is simply too little to bring about A Great Turning. What we need is
a shared source of inspiration, able to commit large groups of people. A Unity in
Diversity, that opens the eyes, move the Heart and leads to great actions. How can we
develop such a Divine Fire in a world that is struck by ignorance, self-addiction and
indifference? Isn't our case a hopeless one?
ARE GOING TO BRING ABOUT
THE GREAT TURNING?
|In my effort to re-define physical, psychological and
spiritual health I have come to surprising results. It is centered around our Triple
Mother: our Biological Mother, Mother Earth and our Cosmic Mother. We are only then
healthy, when we live in harmony with all three. Our future happiness, balance,
self-confidence and success is depending on whether we were able to develop an optimal
relationship with them. Few will disagree with me, that basic trust depends on an optimal
security in the first years of our life. A security that largely depends on a loving
mother. If somehow this relationship is disturbed - obviously and tragically, on a mass
scale nowadays - then our whole future life will be dominated by pain, fear, anguish,
insecurity, inability to relate, bitterness and hatred.
years of patriarchal suppression has led to the supremacy of "reason" and
alienation from our earthly roots. We all have become "reasonable ignorants",
living in a virtual world of thoughts, concepts, images, ideas, opinions and judgements.
While we think that we "can create anything ourselves" we actually are cut off
from reality. The Church has crippled our health by depriving us from our bodies, our
vitality, our subtle energies, our femininity, our emotions, our lust for life, our love,
eroticism and sex, our satisfaction and our connectedness with nature. It is the cause of
the fact, that we had no choice but turning to individualism and materialism. We exploit
the Earth, instead of living in harmony with Her.
The greatest taboo in our Western civilization is Nothingness as the
Ultimate Reality. It is the ground cause for our existential fear. This inability to
"die" has led to an obsession with "growth", "progress",
profit, accumulation and exploitation. Stagnation of the company's monthly "growth
figures" are giving rise to hysterical reactions. "Never look back" is the
motto of an entire culture. It is equal to permanently separating yourself from the
Source. This Source proves to be a Cosmic Vacuum! The irony: not the Vacuum is killing
you; on the contrary, She proves to be the Cauldron of ever-lasting renewal and
regeneration. Avoiding Her will do! By not being able to die to the old, ego is blowing
itself up, eventually leading to stress, depression, agression and burn-out.
Lust for Life
Freedom from fear
|Many would say: ah, these are all soft values. In our
world of today different qualities are needed. Don't we all have to survive? And moreover,
"feminine" values will never be able to be a factor in saving the earth. You
better return to "reality".
Maybe some steps back
in HerStory will help. First of all, the Great Mother has been there from Eternity. She is
the Non-Dimension beyond God and the universe. In Her, everything without exception is
dying while continuously being reborn. She is the Destroyer, the Maintainer and the
Creator of all Life. From the beginning mankind has learned to respect Her, living in
harmony with this Her Cosmic Law. It considered death and rebirth as the most natural
Power in the entire universe.
This insight is still engrained in our genes. Deep down we all know,
that our current way of life is violating Her Cosmic Balance. It is a vicious circle.
Because of being afraid of the "revenge" of the Mother, "punishing" us
for our outrageous transgressions, we even pursue our selfish goals with greater grimness.
"Growth" has become an obsession. It has become extremely pathological in the
sense, that we hope that the Mother will eventually "redeem us" through a great
cataclysm*, which indeed may become a self-fulfilling prophecy....
* The Christian apocalyptic disease.
Mankind has never lost its awe for the Mother. At crucial times in
history it is always She - in different qualities, appearances and forms - Who intervenes
with human life, individually and collectively. How is it otherwise possible, that after
2000 years of patriarchal dominance, more people than ever before flock to Her Shrines,
Temples and Churches? A true renewal of Mother Worship is emerging. In Hinduism you will
find the Maha Matri or Matri Devi in Her countless manifestions, of which Durga is the
most powerful. She is crushing the Earth- destroying patriarchal demon. In Christianity
"Mother of God" is increasingly understood literally. At the same time the
popularity of the Black Madonna is rising sharply. Why? Because "black" is the
color of the Original Great Mother, the Cosmic Womb that promises true Regeneration. In
Buddhism, Kuan Yin is much more popular among common people than Buddha is. Taoists revere
the Tao as a Valley (Womb). In Judaism the Shekinah (Sophia) is enjoying increasing
interest among progressive Jewish women (also men), while even in Islam the quality of
Allah as the Merciful is considered to be central in the faith. Last but not least, all
kinds of "pagan" groups (Goddess/Wicca) are on the rise, reflecting the need for
MOTHER PEOPLE OF VARIOUS
HAVE MORE IN COMMON THAN
PEOPLE OF ONE FAITH
|Mother-centered spirituality is not "weak".
We are NOT the softies of this earth. In fact, in history, many revolutionary movements
were inspired by the Mother. Think of the Medieval Women Mystics, the Courtly Ladies, the
Worship of the (Black) Madonna, the Grail Knights e.g. the Knights Templar, the
Cistercienzer Monks, the Knights of the German Order, followed by many others; the Tang
Dynasty and the "Wusheng Lao Mu" movement in China (around 1500 CE), the
Ajanta/Ellora emancipation in India and the "Jay Mata Di! ("the Mother will be
victorious") rebellion of Bengal; Romanticism (J.W. Goethe) and the Twenties in
Europe; the liberation movements in Latin America and recently the Madonna (Virgen de
Guadalupe) as the Protectress of the Hispanic immigrants in the USA; rebellious priests
like Balasurya of Sri Lanka, who's dissident work is based on inspiration by the Virgin
Mary, yes, even World Wars were fought "in the Name of the Mother"....In fact,
countless initiatives, small and big often have been inspired by "The Eternal
In these most critical of times the Mother has
once again revealed Herself to the world. It is proof of the seriousness of our situation.
This time She has shown Herself as Ultimate Reality: the Original Mother of the Universe.
She is beyond existing religions, while at the same time inspiring them. As Unity in
Diversity She is the Ultimate Source of Inspiration and Liberation. No, we are neither
softies nor a minority group. Adding up all Mother-oriented people of all traditions we
come to many millions of people world-wide! It is a limitless potential for a World
Mobilization. It is exactly what we are aiming at: bringing all Mother devotees together,
starting a "Long Green March" through the institutions: governments,
international organizations, religions and yes, big business, with the aim of Healing the
Planet. To this purpose I have founded the UNIVERSAL
MOTHER MOVEMENT. It is an horizontal ad hoc umbrella network, uniting Mother
devotees, groups, organizations from all faiths, all cooperating with each other, while
keeping their own identity e.g. remaining fully independent.
We have two objectives. First, we want you to subscribe to a
"Maternal World View", based on "feminine/holistic" values like
insight, connectedness, self-lessness, cooperation, care, love, community, sustainability,
peace and justice. Secondly, we want you - obviously only if you feel like it - to engage
yourself with the 7 Steps of the Healing the Planet Initiative: A New Spirituality, A New
Psychology, A New Health Care, A New Tradition, A New Society, A New Economy and A New
Earth.....thus Restoring the Wholeness of Life. Moreover, let your leaders (politicians
etc.) know - write letters, ask for interviews, organize events e.g. demonstrations - that
we are coming!
