"The world-side has been violent toward the feminine. Some speak of how we need to return the earth to the feminine, that the masculine energies are destroying the earth. But the feminine always needs the balance of the masculine, just as the masculine needs the balance of the feminine. And it is true that we are out of balance. The world fears the feminine. She is the creator and the destroyer. We have  repressed her, stoned her, bound her feet, cut off her hands. We have burned her at the stake. We have defined her as the seductress, the temptress, and we have held her responsible for the moral failings of men. And, when she has spoken, we have often not believed her."

thank you for this post, Laura...(btw; so great to meet you at last)...

We are on the same page; literally and metaphorically. She is the creator and the destroyer. She is the originator and she is substance, form, mother, matter and matrix and it her time to reconnect her with her consort - the masculine..so, What is Puella? She is us, I think..the daughters that carry the vision and we are her blood, her bone and her cells...
