A Hymn to the Holy Mother-Earth Mother
I recommend that none of the following be believed at all. An interesting Tale, all the more fun if it turns out to be true …
… can go one of two ways, … One where we accept the general thesis of scientific materialism that the human being is only matter, without a hint of spirit; or Two: we remember our school lessons, in which wise ancient Peoples all worshiped gods and goddesses, while leaving behind amazing artifacts that survived the ravages of time.
If those Folk (gods and goddesses) are Real, where are They today? On the basis of direct experience I know They are Waiting, for the prodigal sons and daughters to return home.
Scientific materialism entered the world, at the Design of the Divine Mystery. They kicked us out of the Garden, and guided civilizations – bearing individual sparks of the evolution of consciousness – to reach this Crisis Moment in the Eternal Now (“can it be forever now” – Moody Blues).
Human Freedom is the Beast from the Abyss of the Uncreated and Yet to be Formed. Will we remember the Mother and Father? If not, what will be the cost to our humanity.
Essentially, modern unnatural science asserts that the human being is the only self-aware sentient consciousness in this region of “space”. The truth is that: When you look at “Nature”, it is the Goddess Natura that is looking back, and longingly waiting to commune-with each of us, personally.
Those fantasy star-faring aliens of deep space are right next to us, behind the veil of the sense world. We don’t have to go to the stars, to meet alien-seeming intelligence. What is very cool … Arthur C. Clarke’s observation is true … a science of communion-with the spirit living everywhere seems like magic to us, because there is real magic. Just not like Harry Potter. There are no muggles. All of us are gifted, once we look in the right places.
I wrote a long article on the relationship between the ancient ideas of the four elements [fire is the symbol for our will; air = intellect; water = feeling; and, earth – the weaving together of those three into = consciousness] … and the four transformations and/or forces of modern physics: electromagnetism; gravity; and, and the weak and strong nuclear forces.
I also wrote a long essay on errors in the materialistic ideas in astronomy. “The Misconception of Cosmic Space as appears in the Ideas of Modern Astronomy”
We – ourselves – are the immortal aspect of the Divine Mystery that has the Human mind, and heart, and hands … whose niche in the whole is to look at Her and Friends … to be Their eyes onto the world of Matter. What We see, They only see through Us. Thunder speaks its name, directly. If you want to get some of the secrets of clouds, study the film “Arrival”, and consider the possibility of communing-with Rogue Weather.
We are Makers (Orson Scott Card) in training, … with an opportunity to add to the science of matter, a companion science of the spirit.
Meeting the Goddess Natura is to engage in a love affair. Each individual has their own Way to learn to Commune-With the invisible kingdoms, and to no longer accept the obvious folly of Dominion-Over.
My name is Joel A. Wendt. I am 81 years old in 2022. My story is here: https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2022/09/21/out-of-the-closet/
My business card reads: White-privileged, Christian, son of Montana, American citizen, shaman, and professional heretic.
In service to Her, I created – on my web-presence – this: https://thecollectiveimagination.com/shamans-law-firm/
The work to be done there, begins with this Ideal: “If a Corporation can be a Person before the Law, then certainly a Planet can be a person before the Law.”
The word shaman, to me, means being a priest of an Earth Religion. So it is crucial to see the Law Firm as a “Shaman’s” Law Firm. We practice a higher law, which then intersects with “The Art of the Good – the Regeneration of Fallen Justice” [by Valentin Tomberg, available on Amazon] The link just above goes into great detail as to legal strategies and tactics that could be used by folks actually filing lawsuits …
As a spiritual social scientist, I encourage the creation of an annual Rite, on Earth Day, where many environmental groups (and friends) simultaneously file lawsuits against Multinational Apex Predators, where the Planet is the named plaintiff.
This becomes News, and we have then arrived at the right venue: The Court of Public Opinion. It is not the point to win, as much as it is to take scientific materialism, and gentle it with spirit. Not a fight, an evolution.
There already exists many many many books, farms, schools, where we get some new “gospels”: of organic chemistry, physics, geometry, the imagination, the soul, the green world, the true relationship of humans and the animal kingdom, the living nature of water and air, … science with spirit.
Some parallel lawsuits might involve challenging the Official Narrative of the Covid Mystery. Such applications of the law might do well to proceed as class action lawsuits. We collect many who know they were harmed, by a medical tyranny that corrupted our safeguards against criminally “under-tested” vaccines – in a rush to get theirs to the market, as the Apex Predators fight over patents and great wealth. [under-tested, only three of the usual ten, and those done at warp speed.
Human anti-human impulses just ignore the predictable Side-Effects, when there is money and power to be had. I have been told – something on the order of – a new Type of Vaccine had been invented (long in planning), that for the first time used gene splicing (bits of animal DNA, instead of just plant DNA). Whatever is in the vaccines, after being “inoculated” many women had serious issues with their periods.
As we assess the truth over the next years, soberly, we will find that the cure was far far worse than the disease.
There are other Ways, to deal with – and understand – the Covid Calamity.
For a “first contact” adventure, I suggesting seeking to form an inner relationship with a “grandmother” tree. http://ipwebdev.com/hermit/GrandmotherTree.html gives some details of value. If you have read this last link above, that will provide some context.
Via your heart’s mind talk to a local and visible grandmother tree. She looks lifeless, yet her spirit forces are no long taken up with the needs of leaf dancing in the ocean of light. Down beneath the surface, where the Moon rules, the spirit locus, and underground networks, remain a center of even greater consciousness. Dryads in their Crone stage of development.
Just as with regular prayer, it is crucial to be psychologically and spiritually naked. Surrender, by choice, to your inner state. Keep in mind that what is out of sight, in the soil is a whole other “underworld”, the upside-down, the lost cities, Shamballahs, or as I prefer: Faerie, and the Fae – of which we are one.
The skill that can develop, with patience, is via inner listening. We confess our truth, and wait. Not for something, but just “waiting is”, Michael Valentine Smith, in Heinlein’s “Stranger in a Strange Land”.

If we want to go where Moon wisdom has been hidden, the zones of mirrors are there, like Rey in the underground in Star Wars. Or Luke in caves beneath the earth. In the beginning we see only our many selves reflected back at us. Love this reflection. To the Divine Mystery, humans are holy and sacred, just as are all else that exists.
We each have a journey. Life is giving them now. Each of us is personally being taught, by our circumstances.
She has the whole world in His Hands.

I am not a guru, just a writer. You are the shaman in training. I wrote some stories, and you dear reader … that is the riddle isn’t – how much is up to us as individuals … the ball is now in your court … this last hint:
The Book of Symbols we call the Tarot, has as aspects of its teaching what are called Twenty-one Major Arcana. The first – the Magician – is about Play. The last – the World – is about Dance.
