Weaving of Life’s Web

More Weaving of the Web

[Part 1] Once we get in our core the awareness that no matter how many quilts we gather on our mere human power to weave, men as a global sex class consistently harm us (the better but still male-privileged Roberts and Nigels notwithstanding), there’s no more hand wringing over that. Then there might be someplace else to go. From there maybe collective consciousness for change invoking Spider Woman-esque spiritual power is possible among women.

Rachel Carson, if my memory serves, wrote books after Silent Spring in which she addressed what happens after volcanic destruction of small islands. All the life seems to be destroyed until, good golly Miss Molly, along come the teeny tiny spiders first. Seriously. Nobody knows how they get there. Like Magic. Like Spider Woman is a good metaphor for life staying true to its roots while also evolving. (Not that Carson made the connection. She did enough for any one woman, and yet Monsanto still reigns in its GMO profiteering insanity. Thus, not reformism of the system, it is pointless. But maybe invocation of Spider Woman. Why would movie franchises reverse Her with so many Spider Man films if no power resided in Her for women? It could, however, take a collective effort to find out, even if we all simply agreed to make our invocations at a certain time on a Sunday from wherever around the globe we live.)

Until we invoke through consciousness the natural elements of real Life and our own collected wise spirits as women against the death-dealing global patriarchy, how can we be sure She and our collective We won’t help Us? Goddess knows we need a lot of help now.

    I so agree with this, Sally.

    I do think that the natural world has so much to teach us and that Earth, Herself, is where we must go to remember who we are as women, where we came from, where we are going. I have a lot of thoughts about this subject and want to concretize them into words. They’re just sort of swirling and their shape as they coalesce is still vague to me.

    Reformism won’t work in my opinion – the Monsantos, Exxons, BPs, Tar Sands will not give up one iota of their power and they need to be dismantled. Completely. I believe that the natural, spiritual and unbreakable connection between women and the Earth is what we must work with.

    And I fully believe that She is waiting for us to invoke Her, to call Her, to commune with Her in whatever ways are comfortable for us, because unlike the patriarchal monotheistic “religions,” she expects wild diversity from us to mirror back Her own wild diversity. That way, She recognizes us as Her daughters.

    • Love what you’re saying, Delphyne. It is as if you are tapping into a common consciousness of reality we (and some others) share, which I hope more and more will come to appreciate! Let’s invoke Her tonight. When I lay me down to sleep (with the Goddess), I will know that you too, are in your wild diversity mirroring back Her wild diversity. I love how you write! And We are Her Daughters. Yay!!!!
