Female Only Assemblage

Note…This blog was originally posted at one of my MySpace profiles: 

The Goddess Grove

http://www.myspace.com/the_goddess_grove

(an online circle/sanctuary for women)

I had finally come to grips with a lot of preconceived notions about religion, God, the Goddess, and where I, and my female side, fit into the big picture.  I’ve been exploring Dianic Wicca and do believe that I may have finally found my nitch.  This short blog was the result of one of those ‘ah-ha’ moments…

 



 
How do you feel about this?…Invoking only the Goddess for rituals, holding female only circles, considering the Gods’ main claim to fame as being consort to the Goddess? 


Personally, in 51 years of living– through the Roman Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, Christian Fundamentalism and the four husbands who drug me through all this, kicking and screaming I might add, I’ve been infused with enough male energy to last me several lifetimes.  I’m still trying to figure out why men think it is thier duty to direct every aspect of a woman’s life, including her spirituality!…And, by the way, it doesn’t work.
 
For myself, me personally– I’m ready and enthusiastic to embrace female Divinity, to take my place with the “Womyn” of the world, to reclaim power that was taken from women with the creation of the Eve/apple myth.  To quote Z Budapest– “Eve should have eaten a bushel of apples!– It was her tree!"
 
I know this will bristle some of the male population, but I’ve never kicked about ‘male only domains’– like gentlemen’s clubs and other good ole’ boys’ assemblage places; so I figure they don’t have the option of protesting when we womyn go off on our own little jaunts to the wild places to gather and drum and dance and let loose with our spiritual expression.


And that’s ’bout ’nuff said– for the moment!
