Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, or Spirituality? by Kaalii Cargill



Life emerges from the Feminine: Woman, Nature, Goddess.

When we value the life-giving power of the Feminine we are less likely to kill other human beings who have been held in a mother’s arms.

When we value the life-giving power of the Feminine we are less likely to believe that Nature should be dominated by humans.

When we value the life-giving power of the Feminine we are less likely to cut down old-growth forests, annihilate species, and poison waterways.

When we value the life-giving power of the Feminine we are less likely to blame our mothers for everything; we are more likely to take responsibility for the joys and sorrows of life as mature adults living co-creatively with other mature adults.

When we value the life-giving power of the Feminine we can no longer believe exclusively in a single male deity and in the life-denying dogma of religions based on that belief.

When we value the life-giving power of the Feminine we embrace the embodied experience of being here now in this abundant World, and we recognise our role as care-takers of the Earth.

Valuing and honouring the life-giving power of the Feminine is the pathway of survival . . .
