I am the Creator of Heaven and earth; I ask that you receive the Virtue,


Don’t be afraid, for I will bestow the Gifts of the Spirit,


Bask in the light and splendor and glory of the Presence,


For I am God the Mother, who gives these gifts to you.


 


I will talk with you while you are in quiet meditation


Let your mind be silent without judgment, remembering or planning,


Let your emotions be silent without anger, fear, sadness or regret,


Come to me in the Presence, with joy, praise and adulation.


 


All I ask is that you will listen to others less fortunate,


Think of them in a good way and feel their pain,


Extend the Peace to all you encounter, however high or low,


Know that I am there and I will work wonders through you.


 


I am the Creator of Heaven and earth, and a thousand planets with life,


I have been called the Holy Spirit and the Comforter,


I am God the Mother, Shekinah,


I am the God of the Heaven within you.

How is it that a spirit-being could be considered masculine or feminine? A noncorporeal entity would have no biological male or female characteristics (reproductive organs, for instance).

Curiousgeorge,

You mean ask the men & women who created the gods in their own image?

What's a "spiritual archetype"?

Are these archetypes in the Jungian sense (i.e., they are fundamental "types" that inhabit the landscape of humanity's collective unconscious mind), or do you believe they are actual spiritual beings?

Curiousgeorge,

Thanks for enlightening me.

I must admit, I view gods/spirits/angels/demons as nothing more than cultural constructs.

I appreciate your input!

I think it's more for our own benefit to see beyond the walls or veil in our minds put in place by generational patriarchal thinking.

Hi Sonnymoon, I think it describes forces that cross time and space much like "attitude".  Such a force isn't a person, though it can use them -especially through Ignorance.  Indeed, I would say Ignorance is one.

What's the difference?  All creation participates in "being".  We aren't bodies though we have them.  We are more like conduits.  Some conscious and others unawares.

I am sure there is some importance to the archetypes related here by Curiousgeorge, but his comments seem to have disappeared.  Perhaps, another important archetype here is that of Disciple.  In receiving the gifts, it is also important to give those gifts to others.


 


Clearly, Jesus appointed over 80 disciples.  Mary Magdalene, Salome and Junia were some of the best disciples.  There are also disciples in Buddhism, Hinduism, Muslem, and Jainism religions. You must believe that Shekinah, the Comforter, will grant you the same Virtue that Jesus gave to others. You must believe that you can give the Virtue to others as the eighty Disciples did when they were sent out.
