So, I can understand the idea of the Divine Mother being the ONE..the Feminine all. However, of course, many still use names of various Goddesses and say they are the true ONE. While Catholicism does not say Mother Mary is a Goddess,,,,they sure "Venerate" Her as one! Is it easy to see she was a Goddess taken human form? Just as her son Jesus was Christ in human form?
What then, of Goddesses from the Greek Pantheon? Some state, like Pallas Athena or Lady Venus were real people later added to Homer's stories, now ascended masters of their own right.
I truly love the story of Metis, the original wife of Zeus, whom Zeus swallowed and kept her wisdom for himself (using her through him). Metis was also the Mother of Athena who popped out of Zeus' head.

What of Isis, she who has a badly abused name in this Muslim state. Her statues were later repainted into Mother Mary.

Also think of Diana..she who was also Artemis. Diana, to me, lives on in stories in today's pop culture as the Amazon Wonder Woman. With her many readers and followers, it is easy to see she has taken a life of her own. Many can see her as a worthy Goddess figure. someone even started some kind of small website on such an idea: http://skirtyli.wix.com/churchwonder-woman

I had my own personal vision where a group of cloaked individuals stripped me bare, and moved aside for a divine Feminine figure to approach. She was also cloaked, handed me a Chalice and tole me "I was hers." Her aura was unlike anything else I ever felt. It was like feeling heaven. Hard to describe other than to state nothing else mattered but to be within that aura. Any reflections on my discussions?
