Nine Touchstones of Goddess Spirituality by Carol P. Christ


When I write it sometimes seems as if the words are coming from "between the worlds" This was the case when I "rewrote" the 10 Commandments.


Nurture life.

Walk in love and beauty.

Trust the knowledge that comes through the body.

Speak the truth about conflict, pain, and suffering.

Take only what you need.

Think about the consequences of your actions for seven generations.

Approach the taking of life with great restraint.

Practice great generosity.

Repair the web.

Carol is looking forward to the upcoming Goddess Pilgrimage to Crete. A woman joined only yesterday--it is not too late for you to join the fall tour now. $150 discount applies.

    I adore your revision of the comandments. I wrote a Prayer to express my love and understanding of the Divine Feminine. I hope reading and meditating on it puts you closer to the comforting universal energy of the Great Mother.

    Prayer to The Feminine Divine
    By Nokomis / Lynne Haines 7/01/09

    She IS, who we ARE
    Breath to breath
    LIFE, to death. (we are composed of sacred matter - mater - mother)

    We are HER snowflakes
    Unique, and short lived.
    We ARE her stars
    Shining with Life’s light. (our aura glows with life, as long as we are in our body

    SHE is, IN us
    We ARE, of HER
    We ARE HER’S
    From first to last (our spirit is a piece of Her - each and every one of us)
    Start to finish

    From HER we come
    And to HER we return
    SHE is our owner
    WE are her vehicle (we are never far from, we are immersed in Her, she guides us)

    But never separated

    We cannot find HER anywhere
    We cannot hear HER but SHE IS
    The beating of our heart.

    We cannot see HER
    Though SHE IS
    Our mind’s eye, / I. (each individual, each "I am" is a chip off the Divine Block)

    And SHE holds us, all ways
    In HER hands
    SHE IS: Who Must Be – Obeyed. (no one gets around Her domain, only through it)
