Writing a dissertation is a strange initiatory journey. You kinda don’t really understand what you are writing about until you are writing it. One thought leads to many others. It has been hard to rein in the many trajectories; one realization leads to another entire landscape of thought.
It seems though that my focus has been engrossed in the connection between the divine feminine, physics, shamanism, and consciousness studies. By assuming the multiverse is holographic in nature, and not materialistic or dualistic, I, like other scholars and thinkers who think about this stuff, have been able to make some really liberating connections.
I was researching the Kali Yuga, which in Hindu mythology/theology is the cycle of historic time we are in now that is like a hell realm. This is of course what we are experiencing. Anybody with a pulse knows we are in an age of extreme imbalance now. http://www.mother-god.com/kali-yuga.html.
In that excursion I found this very cool site with what I am guessing is partially channeled info that discusses the original female creatrix as both the unity and the many manifestations of deity. Check that out here:
In my research on the dark goddesses and the shamans, priestesses, and witches who serve these goddesses, I have found that one of their functions is to mete justice, and that the role of the spiritual intermediaries that serve them is linked to oracles and prophesy. Hello warnings from the psychic women! And so it is now. Shamanic and matristic cultures sought balance with the ensouled world that sustain them. When something in the society was out of balance they acknowledged that the aspect of the divine creatrix would inevitably manifest as the dark goddess in order to restore balance. Often this movement of energy, like the Tower card in the Tarot, means a big-assed cleansing. Like a hurricane in force and power, the balancer energy is destructive.
Now, taking into consideration the insane asylum consensual consciousness we are currently living in and the predatory death and slave culture we have created as a result, it is clear that the dark goddess of destruction is the only one for the job of restoring balance. We are in need of the dark goddesses to correct what is way way outa whack. My fav is of course Kali.
I have a really cool reference by Ajit Mookerjee. The pictures are killer (pardon thee pun) and in it I just found a poem by the guru Vivekananda on page 108 that pretty much sums up the Kali Yuga and the power of the restorer of justice Kali Ma. Pretty much sums up NOW. Jai Ma!
Kali the Mother
The stars are blotted out,
Clouds are covering clouds,
It is darkness, vibrant, sonant,
In the roaring whirling wind
Are the souls of a million lunatics,
Just loose from the prison house,
Wrenching trees by the roots,
Sweeping all from the path,
The sea has joined the fray,
And swirls up mountain-waves,
to reach the pitchy sky,
The flash of lurid light
Reveals on every side
A thousand, thousand shades
Of death begrimed and black –
Scattering plagues and sorrows,
Dancing mad with joy,
Come, Mother. Come!
For terror is Thy name,
Death is in Thy breath,
And every shaking step
Destroys a world for e’er,
Thou ‘Time’, the All-Destroyer!
Come, O Mother. Come!
Who dares misery love,
And hug the form of Death,
Dance in destruction’s dance,
To him the Mother Comes.
