In ancient civilizations they deeply worship “God the Mother” and they have always had an icon or symbol related to the Mother element.

In ancient Egypt she is ISIS; in Aztec civilization she is TONANTZIN; yet to medieval alchemists she is STELLA MARIS, the Virgin of the Sea. The Hindus called her DEVI KUNDALINI SHAKTI; in Greek civilization she is CYBELE, RHEA, ADONIA, and INSOBERTA… and in Christianity she was represented by MARY.

Mary or Virgin Mary is the representation of God as a mother, from which she is called a virgin. She is always the Madonna who carries in her arms the child Christ. In God’s creation we see clearly the mother’s presence in all things and this is why in nature there is the grace and love of the mother, which is so essential even to animals and to ants.

She is the originator, she is the great conception, she is the sustenance, the house, the home, the nature and the world. She is the motherly love which is always present in every woman… The human mother is nothing else but the resemblance and image of the universal mother, of God’s mother. If God is Father, he is also Mother, because there are two parts of HIM.

It is also good to remember, that during Jesus Christ’s crucifixion, Mary and John the apostle were present in front of the cross, where the crucified Christ says to Mary: “WOMAN, THIS IS YOUR SON.” Next, talking to John the apostle, he says: “JOHN, THIS IS YOUR MOTHER!” The Son of Man, very wise, deeply understood that Mary, being a woman and a mother, was covered by the individual and spiritual manifestation of the Cosmic Mother.
The Son of Man came to bring the doctrine of “I am the way, the truth and the life”, but this does not mean he is denying the mother principle that exists in everything and in all orders.

The Mother element was present in Hindu, Maya, and Egyptian cultures, etc. and etc.
God, related to his motherly aspect is the Virgin Mary whom every good Christian deeply loves and venerates.
The Egyptian, Hindu and Christian litanies are surprisingly and wonderfully similar… She is our queen of every period and every day... Blessed is God, blessed are the FATHER and the MOTHER! Everybody must deeply love “God the Mother”, everybody must venerate her in our inner being just as we venerate the Father and Christ, because she is the one who originates everything and she is the one who decomposes everything, according to God the Father’s will.

"... He unfolds into Her and commands, directs, instructs.
She eliminates the undesirable elements which we carry in our interior,
on the condition that we continuously work on ourselves…”

(V.M. Samael Aun Weor)

If Virgin Mary has such special connotation in primitive Christianity it must be because “God the Mother” is represented in herself, without whom the manifestation of the Trinity or the Logus in man would not be possible. Each one of us has his or her particular, individual Divine Mother; She, in Herself, is a part of our own Being.
“God the Mother” within our own intimacy is the feminine aspect of our FATHER who dwells in secret.

In some religions, a sacred feminine archetype can occupy a very central place in prayer and worship. In Hinduism, Sacred Feminine or Shaktism is one of the three major Hindu denominations of worship along with Vishnu and Shiva.

In Tibetan Buddhism, the highest achievement any person can achieve is to become like the "great" female Buddhas (e.g. Arya Tara) who are depicted as being supreme protectors, fearless and filled with compassion for all beings.

The primacy of a monotheistic or near-monotheistic "Great Goddess" is advocated by some modern matriarchists as a female version of, preceding, or analogue to, the Abrahamic God associated with the historical rise of monotheism in the Mediterranean Axis Age.

The Earth Mother is a motif that appears in many mythologies. The Earth Mother is a fertile goddess embodying the fertile earth and typically, the mother of other deities, and so, also are seen as patronesses of motherhood. This is generally thought of as being because the earth was seen as being the mother from whom all life sprang. In South America, contemporary Andean Indian peoples such as the Quechua and Aymara believe in the Mother Earth Pachamama, whose worship cult is found in rural areas and towns at Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Northern Chile and Northwestern Argentina. Andean migrants carried the Pachamama cult to cities and many other extra-Andean places, including metropolitan Buenos Aires.

The Upper Paleolithic Venus figurines have been sometimes explained as depictions of an Earth Goddess similar to Gaia.

In Native American Indian storytelling, "The Earth Goddess", is one of several Creator-based titles and names given to the Spider Grandmother.

In ancient Hawaii, Nuakea was a mother goddess of lactation.

Carl Gustav Jung suggested that the archetypal mother was a part of the collective unconscious of all humans, and various Jungian students. Erich Neumann and Ernst Whitmont have argued that such mother imagery underpins many mythologies, and precedes the image of the paternal "father", in such religious systems. Such speculations help explain the universality of such mother goddess imagery around the world.

Some currents of Neopaganism, in particular Wicca, have a bitheistic concept of a single goddess and a single god, who in hieros gamos represent a united whole. Polytheistic reconstructionists focus on reconstructing polytheistic religions, including the various goddesses and figures associated with indigenous cultures.

The irony of it all is how important was the figure of the women in ancient cultures, and how it change years ago, like the concepts of life, death, the idea the human race and the relationship with the nature, signs of the involution of our society.

Hi! This art piece comforts me. I feel warm when I see this. Maybe like I'm under some unseen protection...physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I don't know if that makes any sense but I feel like everything is going to be okay when I look at this. It's a great piece.
