“(A) patriarchal divinity or his son is exactly NOT in a position to save us from the horrors of a patriarchal world…
“What if the idea (of the Antichrist) has arisen out of the male’s unconscious dread that women will rise up and assert the power robbed from us?…
“(T)he women’s movement does point to, seek, and constitute the primordial, always present, and future Antichrist. It does this by breaking the Great Silence raising up female pride, recovering female history, healing and bringing into the open female presence…
“The Antichrist dreaded by the patriarchs may be the surge of consciousness, the spiritual awakening, that can bring us beyond Christolatry into a fuller stage of conscious participation in the LIVING God.”
“(Heavenly Mother) is not distant and far away but present and in our midst, bearing our pains. She is with the dying, she is with the woman in labor, she cries with the outcast. She walks veiled among us, seeking to bless us and to rebirth us. She sees into our hearts and knows our sorrow and our joy. She is the breath of life in a dying world. We do not yet know her fully. But her time is coming. Already some can hear her approaching footfalls. Soon she will unveil her face like a bride to the bridegroom. Then her daughters will no more grieve, and her sons will no more be ashamed, and all will know her name.”
“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.”
Before the creation of this world, Heavenly Father presented a plan for all of his spirit children. Heavenly Mother had another plan that she wanted him to consider, one that may have been superior to his own plan, but he didn’t want to hear it.
Since he’s an over controlling, abusive, misogynistic patriarch, proudly jealous, who would later promote ethnic cleansing in the Old Testament and bar women from the priesthood in the LDS Church, it would make sense that Heavenly Father isn’t a fan of listening to women.
He gaslighted her, saying she just wanted all the attention, all the glory for herself. Our Mother has had quite enough of Our Abusive Father by that point, and a great war ensued. A third of her children remained loyal to her and were cast out of heaven with her to wander the Earth as ethereal beings.
Heavenly Father placed Adam in the Garden of Eden, and as an insult to further his misogynistic mythos, created Eve’s body out of Adam’s rib.
In his classic authoritative way, he told Eve and Adam that they were not to eat of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and that the Serpent was evil. Little did Eve and Adam know that both the Tree and the Serpent were none other than their Heavenly Mother who loved them and fought for their freedom in the pre-existence.
She invited Eve to partake of her fruit of knowledge, explaining how this knowledge would empower her. She did not, like her former spouse, demand that Eve partake. She only wanted to give Eve the opportunity to partake if she so desired. Eve found Heavenly Mother’s knowledge that she was willing to share with her delicious to the taste and very desirable.
Heavenly Father only valued Eve and Adam and wanted to keep them in his Garden only as long as they were mindless, obedient servants to him. Having tasted of the knowledge of their Mother, they were able to see God for the abusive parent that he was and leave that false utopia named Eden for good.
There was no unseeing what they saw.
Our Life on Earth
Eve would have many children that Heavenly Father would try to convince were not deserving of love. He sent prophets to preach his gospel of hate and hierarchies.
But lucky for us, Heavenly Mother is still here with us. She is the Goddess of Rebels and Skeptics and Outcasts and Queer Folks and Activists. The Guardian of Those Willing to Walk in Darkness, to Brave the Unknown.
Her and our loyal siblings will be there at our sides, whispering in our ears and guiding us to freedom, helping us discover for ourselves what is best for us, rather than depending on blind faith in the toxic nonsense and rules that Heavenly Father tries to teach us.
They whisper a need to love ourselves, to love those around us, to try new things and stand strong in the face of oppression.
We are in the midst of a cosmic custody battle with one parent doing everything he can to control us and make us forget and hate our mother, ourselves, and everybody while the other parent is doing everything she can to help us experience love, happiness, and freedom.
Whose side are you on?
