REPOST FROM LAUREN RAINE @  http://threadsofspiderwoman.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-goddess-remembered-film-by-donna.html




 
THE GODDESS REMEMBERED is a beautifully crafted documentary directed by Donna Read and produced by the Canadian Film Board, an in-depth look at Goddess religions in prehistory, the evolution of contemporary Goddess spirituality, and "The  Burning Times", the witch-hunt hysteria that swept through Europe during the Inquisition. Goddess Remembered features Merlin Stone, Carol Christ, Luisah Teish, Starhawk, Charlene Spretnak, and Jean Bolen, who link the loss of goddess-centred societies with today's environmental crisis. They propose a return to the belief in an interconnected life system, with respect for the earth and the female, as fundamental to our survival. Goddess Remembered is the first part of a three part series which includes The Burning Times and Full Circle1989.


This excerpt is from "The Burning Times", and talks about the massive torture and burnings that were the ultimate in misogyny and sexual repression represented by the Catholic Church.  If one wonders where the "war on women" going on in Congress right now comes from, here's one of the precedents.   It is estimated that as many as 10 million people, all most all of them  women,  were murdered in this time, ironically, the same period when the Renaissance was flowering in Italy.  As early as 1450, and before,  witch hunts took place in Europe. In some villages virtually all the females, from grandmothers to small girls, were exteminated - an example is the village of  Lagendorf, Germany,  in 1492 (when America was being "discovered") all but two women were accused of witchcraft and destroyed.  Just  imagine that:  an entire village with all of its mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and event female infants destroyed.

NO BLOOD FOR OIL....THE COMPLETE AND FINAL REASON FOR GOING TO WAR

"In upstate New York right now, they’re doing this gas-extraction drilling, and everywhere they’ve done this, people’s wells have been poisoned. So there’s a big fight in upstate New York to slow it down, to put a moratorium on gas drilling until we can study this nascent technology. Basically, they pump out millions of gallons of water laced with thousands of gallons of this chemical formula — it has up to 590 chemicals in it, many of them carcinogenic. Halliburton — the people who came up with this technology — has been exempted from the Safe Drinking Water Act. And people don’t really know about it. The movie Gasland came out and really illuminated it. It’s pretty scary stuff, right up there with BP in its potential for disaster."

This is for the women of the world...as Eve Ensler put so eloquently last night....""If we ever knew deep in our hearts that the issue about abortion … was not really about fetuses and babies, but really men's terror of women's sexuality and power, I think it's fully evidenced here," Ensler told The Associated Press by phone.

"The questions are simple. 
Why does a small group of humanity reap the efforts of billions? 
Why can this elite group poison the planet to further enrich themselves? 
Why do we accept a soulless social order built around the concept of people staying in line? 
Why do we allow armed police to beat and cage us if we step off that line?"

HOW TO BE WISE?
To be old is to be wise.
Yet, so many arrive at old age
Without wisdom.
They have missed developing wisdom
In their mature years.
Hence their old age is bleak.
And they do not know
How to die in peace and with grace.
Wisdom enables you to live in meaning
To smile when you become old
To die in dignity.
How do you acquire wisdom?
It is not easy but it is possible.
You need to believe
That you are more than you are.
You have to develop the art of Transcendence
Of what is obvious and ordinary.
You must see the big picture
Into which all small facts can fit.
You need to understand that ordinary knowledge
Is just too small for developing wisdom.
You must serve universal causes
Beyond your ego and your interests.
Yes, wisdom has its price.
But the rewards are great.
You arrive at old age smilingly
And you are able to die peacefully.

CRIMINAL...CRIMINAL....CRIMINAL

Monsanto’s Roundup Threatens Stability of Global Food Supply

By Anthony Gucciardi
Monsanto's reckless disregard for public health and the agricultural stability of the planet may be even more significant than previously thought. A shocking new report reveals how Monsanto's Roundup is actually threatening the crop-yielding potential of the entire biosphere. The report reveals that glyphosate, which was developed by Monsanto in the early 1970s and is the active ingredient in its patented herbicide Roundup, may be irreversibly devastating the microbiodiversity of the soil - compromising the health of the entire planet, as a result.
New research published in the journal Current Microbiology highlights the extent to which glyphosate is altering, and in some cases destroying, the very microorganisms upon which the health of the soil, and - amazingly - the benefits of raw and fermented foods as a whole, depend. Concerningly, certain beneficial strains of bacteria used as food-starters in cultures for raw yogurt, such as Lactobacillus cremoris, have entirely disappeared from certain geographic regions where traditionally they were found in plenty. The study reports that the death and growth inhibition of selected food microorganisms was observed in concentrations of Roundup that are lower than are recommended in agricultural practice.
This means that farmers who are increasingly using larger and larger concentrations of Roundup and similar glyphosate-based herbicide formulations to countermand the increasingly resistant super weeds GM agriculture has spawned, are not only damaging the immediate health of the soil, but subsequent yields of indispensable food-starter microorganisms, as well as the microbes that ensure the overall fertility of the soil for producing crops well into the future.
Monsanto's Roundup assaults the planetary biosphere
Microorganisms are responsible for much more than just the health content of raw and fermented foods. The most numerous inhabitants in the web of life, microorganisms participate quite literally "at the root" of the nitrogen, phosphate, oxygen and carbon cycles, and are therefore indispensable for the health of the entire biosphere. Astoundingly, there are an estimated 6,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (6 x 10 to the 30th power) bacterial cells on the planet, and these soil microrganisms represent about 50 percent of the the total biodiversity in terms of numbers of species.
As Roundup usage threatens these soil microrganisms, including fungi and the mycellium (technically the largest organism in the world), it could lead to devastating implications. Compromising the health of the mycellium, in particular, may cause serious harm to the planet. According to prominent mycologist Paul Stamets, mycellium may actually act as a 'network' within the biosphere, acting as the Earth's 'natural internet' in which virtually all organisms may rely upon. It has been recognized throughout the ages that all life depends on the soil. Without healthy soil, the health of the entire planet is at risk.
Charles E. Kelogg was one individual who stated such in the USDA yearbook back in 1939. Kelogg said:
"Essentially, all life depends upon the soil ... There can be no life without soil and no soil without life; they have evolved together."
Franklin Delano Roosevelt also voiced similar concerns, warning:
"The nation that destroys its soil, destroys itself."
Based on an ever-increasing body of scientific evidence showing glyphosate biodegrades slowly, sinks down through the topsoil where it accumulates in the groundwater (source for natural drinking water, e.g. aquifers, springs), and is found in nearly all air and rain samples tested in the US, it is safe to say that Monsanto's best-selling Roundup is one of the greatest threats to human and environmental health ever created.
As the USDA continues to sit back and allow Monsanto to threaten the environmental stability of the planet, it becomes more apparent that the USDA and Monsanto are gladly willing to exchange the future of the planet and its inhabitants for short term gain. In fact, the USDA has even given Monsanto's latest GMO crops speedier approval in order to secure the company's profits, ignoring the numerous known harmful effects of Monsanto's past creations, e.g. Agent Orange, Aspartame, DDT.
The known effects of Roundup
The negative effects of Monsanto's Roundup on human health and the environment have been firmly established by numerous scientific studies and large-scale investigations, with scientists even linking the best-selling herbicide to conditions like infertility and cancer due to its genotoxic (DNA damaging) nature. Amazingly, even when diluted by 99.8 percent (450-fold lower dilutions than used in agricultural applications), Roundup still exhibits serious genotoxic characteristics and is harmful to the integrity of human DNA. Meanwhile, this carcinogenic herbicide product is used nationwide by unsuspecting homeowners and agricultural workers. According to the United States Geological Survey, 176 million lbs of glyphosate were used in the U.S. in 2007.
Outside of the public health realm, Roundup's startling environmental havoc is perhaps an even greater cause for concern. Despite being created to fend off weeds, Roundup is actually spawning resistant superweeds across millions of hectares (one hectare is 10,000 square metres), bankrupting farmers and destroying crop land. These resistant weeds currently cover over 4.5 million hectares in the United States alone, though experts estimate the world-wide land coverage to have reached at least 120 million hectares by 2010. The onset of superweeds is being increasingly documented in Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Europe and South Africa.
The research is clear: Roundup is not only harming human health and damaging farmland, it is threatening the very biosphere itself by destroying microbial biodiversity, with the future agricultural stability of the planet, i.e. the ability to produce food through monoculturing, at serious risk of collapsing.

ALL WE NEED.....ALL WE REALLY NEED.....IS LOVE...BE FOR SOMETHING....NOT AGAINST SOMETHING. PARTICIPATION CREATES A NEW WORLD.

Monday, February 6, 2012



I really wish Pro-Lifers, were about LIFE, and not controlling others right to CHOICE!!
WASHINGTON -- Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the nation's leading anti-breast-cancer charity, has insisted that its since-reversed decision to pull funding from Planned Parenthood arose from a routine change in criteria for grant eligibility that had nothing to do with abortion politics.
But a Komen insider told HuffPost on Sunday that Karen Handel, Komen's staunchly anti-abortion vice president for public policy, was the main force behind the decision to defund Planned Parenthood and the attempt to make that decision look nonpolitical.
"Karen Handel was the prime instigator of this effort, and she herself personally came up with investigation criteria," the source, who requested anonymity for professional reasons, told HuffPost. "She said, 'If we just say it's about investigations, we can defund Planned Parenthood and no one can blame us for being political.'"
Emails between Komen leadership on the day the Planned Parenthood decision was announced, which were reviewed by HuffPost under the condition they not be published, confirm the source's description of Handel's sole "authority" in crafting and implementing the Planned Parenthood policy.
Handel's strategy to cut off Planned Parenthood involved drafting new guidelines that would prevent Komen from funding any organization that was under investigation by local, state or federal authorities. Since Planned Parenthood is currently the target of a congressional inquiry prompted by House Republicans into the way it uses government funds, the family planning provider would have been immediately disqualified from receiving new Komen grants.
After the initial uproar when news of the decision broke, the story that Komen told the public was that the cut-off was unrelated to a political agenda against Planned Parenthood.
"While it is regrettable when changes in priorities and policies affect any of our grantees, such as a long-standing partner like Planned Parenthood, we must continue to evolve to best meet the needs of the women we serve and most fully advance our mission," the charity said in a statement this past Tuesday.
Americans United for Life and other pro-life groups have been pressuring Komen for years to cut ties with Planned Parenthood because some of its clinics offer abortions, even though none of Komen's money was used toward abortion services. Handel's internal strategy, the Komen source told HuffPost, was to exaggerate those attacks and use them to convince the leadership that funding Planned Parenthood was a political liability.
"Komen's been dealing with the Planned Parenthood issue for years, and you know, some right-wing groups would organize a protest or send out a mailing every now and then, but it was on a low simmer," the source said. "What Karen's been doing for the past six months is ratcheting up the issue with leadership. Every time someone would even mention a protest, she would magnify it, pump it up, exaggerate it. She's the one that kept driving this issue."
Handel and Komen President Elizabeth Thompson didn't respond to requests for comment.
The source said Handel submitted a final version of the new grant criteria to Komen leadership in November, and the board approved it in December, at which point Komen's top public health official, Mollie Williams, resigned "on the spot."

                                                             - Ralph Waldo Emerson


In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
George Orwell
In 2008, a woman'a group from Pinckney, Michigan, The Wild Womyn,  dedicated a "Gather the Women Event" http://www.gatherthewomen.org/ to the creation of Goddess Masks, inspired by Loren Raine. http://threadsofspiderwoman.blogspot.com/ 
She graciously allowed us to draw creative energy from her work. 

The creation of and the circle work involved with the awakening of our own masks, has 4 years later, been noted to be part of our individual evolution.


Loren is again creating a presence for us.....she calls out to the old spirits of the divinine feminine, and requests their expression in this Time.....In honor of her dedication to the energy of the Feminine, to the deep energies that are freed into our world and consciousness, lets us assist as possible.

The Masks of the Goddess

Mythology is at the roots of our culture, stories that inspire and teach.  We have endless renditions of war god myths -  but few  know the universal, multi-cultural myths of the Goddess, the "faces of feminine dieties".  What is the "Mirror of Sophia?"  How is the "Descent of Inanna" important?  Who was Sedna?  These ancient yet contemporary stories, and many others,  are deeply meaningful as we create a new mythology for our time:  stories that empower women and envision sustainable ways of living in Mother Earth.
For almost 10 years the  Masks of the Goddess were brought to life by dancers, storytellers, and teachers. The project ended in 2008, but ever since then I've received many requests to use the masks, which I no longer have.  So this year (2012) I've begun work on a new collection, which will be held in trust for future communities.  I'm seeking $6,000.00 for the time and materials I need to make 21 new masks ($1,000.00 of that amount will  be for the costs of producing and shipping Rewards).  Monies raised will also fund the "inaugural performance" of the new collection at the 2012 Women and Mythology Conference in San Francisco, produced and directed by author and ritualist  Macha NightMare.  As she describes it,
"Around the world 'spirits of place' have revealed themselves to us, encounters that generated stories told over the ages. With masks especially created for this event, we propose a ritual performance that offers all celebrants encounters with these goddesses as they have been known in the past and as they exist today."
Thank you so much for your encouragement and support!

Howard Zinn’s radio broadcasts’ call to echo Martin Luther King's sermon, Beyond Vietnam, a Time to Break Silence.

King Condemned US Wars & Unjust Overseas Predatory Investments

  http://kingcondemneduswars.blogspot.com/2011/07/print-out-for-use-in-any-congregation.html                                                                                       
                                   Petition to All Pastors
In the name of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we ask that you forthrightly and unequivocally condemn this blowing apart of our brothers and sisters and their children all around the world  just as King condemned it. 

We ask further that you condemn, as King did, the lies used to justify the murder and maiming of families in their own homes and villages, and the subversion, destabilization and destruction of their homelands in the interests of predatory investments,

Finally, just as Dr. King, in his sermon Beyond Vietnam - a Time to Break Silence, recounted to us the history of the lies, from 1945 onward, used to trick Americans into supporting the Vietnam war, we ask you to expose the lies that have concealed secret arrangements for CIA covert crimes against humanity in the Middle East, Africa and elsewhere in the world since 1953, - arrangements that always originate within a dominant financial element that rules our society through ownership and manipulation of 98% of all electronic and print media sources of information.

Reverend, please repeat Martin Luther King’s  public denunciation of American homicide abroad, currently being heartlessly practiced in six Muslim nations. King cried out, “The Greatest Purveyor of Violence in the World Today is My Own Government,” “Every man of humane convictions must protest, we must all protest.”  King warned us, “Silence is betrayal” "The hottest fires in hell are reserved for those, who in times of moral crisis, maintain neutrality."

King was silenced so the imperialist wars he condemned could go on. We are no longer silent. May our clergy lead us in prosecuting those promoting war.

OCCUPY EVERYDAY

Occupy with our Philosopher; Professor Henryk Skolimowski
"Occupy your mind.   Occupy your mind means first of all not to allow it to be an empty coconut; then not to allow it to be a garbage disposal unit for the inferior ideas of others.  Right mind must be able to see through and not allow itself to be manipulated by the orgy of advertising and clever pseudo experts.  But above all, right mind must be creative and resilient as a coordinator of all other “ occupy” sub- movements.  Thus, the roles of mind and of soul are stupendous in coordinating the grass root movement of Occupy.   The lucid mind can surely help all other branches of the Occupy Movement.  We need a guide and a compass, which would help us to arrive at the land of justice, compassion and harmony among people.  The lucid mind could be this guide.
When I speak about the spiritual aspects of “Occupy” movement, people occasionally get uneasy, as if saying: but we are about the economy, about our jobs and life. Yes, these are important.  But equally important are your dignity, the meaning of your life and the inner core of you, which is called the soul. It is all connected.  And unless our minds and souls are straightened, we shall not regain our jobs and life.
It is amazing and significant how this whole movement has developed.  Out of the belly of the beast, a spiritual spiral is emerging. Talk about the unpredictability of history.  This is it.  Who would have thought that out of the scores of maltreated people so much strength, hope and vision could have been generated?  And this hope, strength and vision are not economic commodities but spiritual qualities.  Never underestimate your inner strength because it is the source of your capacities and your spirituality."  Henryk Skolimowski
