"The matriarchal deity is not the Great Mother in heaven, or anywhere else. Rather, she is always concrete and present, visible and touchable. For She IS the earth humankind is living on, and She IS the cosmos we can see shining above us in the sky. This goddess is never alien or elevated or superior, because she also IS the network of spiritual, intellectual, psychic and physical powers within us." -Heide Gottner-Abendroth from "Thou Gaia Art I"
