UNIVERSAL MESSAGE

Great Mother Cosmogony. Everything:
The Divine (white/yellow) and the universe
(green) is born out of Her (black), while
returning in the self-same Eternal Moment.

(In these most desperate of times)
Return of the Great Mother
"Come all ye unto Me,
I Am the All-Embracing One"

1.
In these most critical of times the Great Mother has revealed Herself as the Ultimate Reality.

2.
Actually, the Great Mother Tradition already exists for ten- nay hundreds of thousands of
years before (only 3500 years ago) she was (violently) replaced by patriarchy. Actually, a cyclic
evolution has taken place. Because the Great Mother degenerated into Goddesses; the
Goddesses were replaced by Gods, then the one God emerged; who was replaced by Jesus,
finally declared dead by Nietzsche and currently only represented by the church.

3.
We move individually and collectively toward nothingness. Instead of being the end, Nothingness proves to
be an all-embracing, unimaginable and awesome Vacuum or Emptiness, in archaic times
perceived as Cosmic Womb or Great Mother. We thus live in absolute security. Evolution
consists of returning to the Great Mother as Ultimate Reality. It is the beginning
of A New Era.

4.
Characteristic of the Vacuum is, that everything without exception - both the Divine
and the universe - is continuously born out of Her, while returning to their Bottomless Origin
in the selfsame Eternal Moment.

5.
The Vacuum is the Essence of the Great Mother; the Divine (God, Being, BuddhaNature)
is Her Light Body, while the universe (the earth) is Her Material body*.

* Emptiness and Fullness are thus two sides of the same coin. In Dutch we
have a wonderful word for that: "Vol-Ledigheid".

6.
Thus "God didn’t create the world out of nothingness", but rather Nothingness is continuously
giving birth to both God and the world".

7.
Because the Divine is emerging and returning in the selfsame Eternal Moment, the "impression"
arises that nothing has been added or taken away. Hence, "God" has always
been considered to be absolute. 

8.
Since primordial times everything is subjected to Mother's Law of the Universe": the dynamic
balance between destruction, creation and permanence ("web of life").

9.
She comes at a critical time in which mankind is stuck in its old patterns: rationality, hostility toward
life, self-addiction, accumulation, exploitation and injustice. By doing so we disturb
Her "Law of the Universe".

10.
What you see is, that everything that has been achieved by the ego, is broken down by Her.
Individually and collectively we are heading for Nothingness. It is the cause of the
current degeneration on all levels.

11.
The speed with which the various disasters develop: be it the climate crisis, water shortage,
the vulnerability of modernity, the pollution, the threat of epidemics, the all-present electro-smog,
the hunger in the world, the migration waves or war, they all generate greatest concern.

12.
The individual and collective decay a.o. expresses itself in loneliness, meaninglessness, despair,
angst, depression, aggression and burn-out. It is an intolerable situation. If we want to
prevent chaos, we should urgently reflect on our situation.

13.
Insight in the context of the events of our time is indispensable. It is characterized by being
cut off from the Source. Life that loses contact with the Origin, degenerates.

14.
However, "God is dead". Returning to past forms of belief is not only impossible anymore, but also
undesirable. For, these are part of the problem, rather than the solution.

15.
Patriarchal religions bear a great deal of responsibility. Didn't they claim "God" as something that belongs
exclusively to them? However, God is no one's property. "He" (It) transcends all images, concepts,
dogma's and claims. The exodus from the churches is the logic consequence of it.

16.
Christianity in particular, deprived the people of the foundation of life: the unity with "Heaven,
earth and the community". Life was taken away from you in exchange for
the doctrines of the church.

17.
Studying history, it becomes clear, that it was the church itself that has corrupted spiritual/religious
life in such a way, that the so-called "secularization" came from within, rather than from without.

18.
Instead of bringing us to the Reality of God we were fobbed off with a story about
God. Being cut off from the Source, religious inspiration,
passion and fire extinguished.

19.
Instead of real life - in harmony with our deeper Self, the body, femininity, sex, nature, the community -
the church forced us to live with the ersatz world of images, rituals, concepts,
principles, guidelines, systems and dogma's....

20.
Because the essence of existence was taken away, people were thrown back upon the ego. Hence,
Christianity is the main cause of our alienated, materialistic and individualistic culture.
The only way out is going back to the Origin, the Reality that is all-embracing.

21.
This is becoming even more clear, when we call the "action" of the (cosmic) Vacuum to mind. For, in
Her Bottomlessness everything returns ("centripetal"), while everything simultaneously - out of
Her Unfathomable Abyss - orginates ("centrifugal"). The entire universe
is dominated by these two forces.

22.
For the first time in history, we have the chance to overcome our (existential) fear of Nothingness,
namely through the awareness that Nothingness is not a meaningless emptiness, but that it
is synonymous with the Bottomless Lap of the Mother, in Which everything
is continuously transformed.

23.
For, if we give ourselves (our ego, our self-centeredness) back to Her,
then we will be reborn as a new (wo)man.

24.
The "circumstances" will force us. Aren't we part of a cosmic process after all, that destroys
the old in order to making space for the new? The choice you have is to resist or to cooperate.

25.
In the first case you stubbornly stay identified with your "achievements", while in the second case
you will be reborn. The paradox is this: while clinging to "life" you will die;
if, on the other hand you "die", you will live.

26.
The difference with the past is that we have insight in the cosmic process. The Mother proves to be
the Vessel of Regeneration, in Which everything - without exception - is renewed.
To know, that you entrust yourself to the all-embraching loving Mother,
makes surrender incomparably more easy.

27.
In order to know, if She means anything to you, you may open up yourself to Her with mind,
soul and spirit. To let Her penetrate your Heart is where it is all about. Subsequently, you may
accept Her Reality as a hypothesis for a while. In prayer, contemplation, meditation
e.g. mantra you reveal your soul before Her. You then will see for
yourself what She "is doing with you".

28.
It may be clear, that this has far-reaching consequences for our world view. Instead of filling us with
(deepest) fear, Nothingness proves to be the "Cauldron of Regeneration", the Dimension
from which everything is originating.

29.
Now, suddenly, the "meaning" of our time becomes clear. Destruction is not so meaningless as we
thought it was. Through demolition of the old - all those life threatening structures and
accumulations, which we have created in the course of time - we return to the Source
in order to become regenerated.

30.
Thus, burn-out being the symptom of the collapse of personal and collective ego-ambition, something that has
exceeded the limits of tolerance. It is an invitation to giving up our "ego". It corresponds
with the longing for returning to the Origin.

31.
Summarizing, the Mother is giving new hope to the world 
through destruction of greed, accumulation
and injustice ("death"); giving new way to the renewal of the universe ("awakening", "regeneration"),
together with the beginning of a new brother and sisterhood of all beings on this planet
("connectedness", "web of life", "preservation"), thus restoring the wholeness of life.

32.
By surrendering to the Mother, She will grant us that what we really are - our divine Nature - putting
an end to 2000 years of oppression, in which we were forced to false humility
and submission to a patriarchal institute.

33.
Death and rebirth are but one side of the "Law of the Universe". Our transformation is only complete
though, if we - with our new Self - subsequently will (once again) fit in in the web of life.

34.
This most fundamental step is defined as restoring the unity with
"Heaven, earth and the (new) community".

35.
The feminine is reflecting the web of life, substance and connectedness. Women therefore
should occupy a central position in the community. Masculinity is representing "death
and rebirth". The latter should support the former.

36.
In this world, that has been teared apart, our deepest longing is to (once again) being part of the Whole.
This usually requires an inner training, one which reflects the universal mystic tradition of mankind.

37.
I call this the Universal Way, consisting of awakening; personal integration; restoring the unity
with Heaven and earth; breakthrough of the Light; purification; taking refuge in the Great Mother
and compassion with everything and all.

38.
Through Her Vision of the Grail (1974)* She has given Her Message to the world:
"Awaken!, restructure (integrate) your life and serve others"".

* The Grail symbolizes the Cosmic Womb.

MOREOVER

39.
The Mother has been"rediscovered" by the Servant/Messenger ("Sermes") of the Great Mother,
based on "his" Threefold Realization: the Absolute (Essence of the Great Mother), Full
Enlightenment (Creation Body of the Great Mother) and the Great Darkness
(Destruction Body of the Great Mother).

40.
As the "Cauldron of Regeneration" She is the Source of renewal of a culture, of which the current
phase is running out. Through extreme fragmentation, the longing for That-Which-Unites is
growing, once again being connected with the Primordial Origin of existence.

41.
It may be clear, that this is extremely urgent. Hasn't for 2000 years judeo-christian religion split up
existence into "spiritual" and "worldly?" That's how the desastrous situation emerged
with "churchgoing" on the one hand and raw materialism on the other.

42.
That's why Christianity is directly (co)responsible for both the egoism, the greed, the expansion,
the exploitation and the injustice of our socio-economic system, as well as the de-sacralization
of existence, the destruction of nature and the break-down of non-western cultures.

43.
The way out consists of the insight, that the Divine (Light Body of the Mother) is universal.
Everything: the universe, the earth, history, society, life and ourselves is embedded
in Her Bottomless Reality. I call this "Mother Worship".

44.
Since all life - the universe as the Material Body of the Mother - is the content of e.g. is supported
by the Ultimate, everything is participating in the Sacred, nothing excluded. Everything
is part of the same undivided Divine Space.

45.
The Light Body of the Primordial Mother is penetrating all areas of life, hence, uniting the spiritual
and the worldly, removing our centuries-old dualism. The culture thus regains its spiritual
foundation. The sanctity of existence is restored with it.

46.
This participation in the Numenous that is penetrating everything - the grass, the flowers, the houses,
the trees, the streets, the rocks, the oceans - makes that you "love everything like yourself":
the chair you are sitting on, the carpet, the vase with flowers, the window-sill
and the clouds in the sky.

47.
Yes, you are moving in the Space, that you eventually Are YourSelf. This is corresponding with the Insight
of all mystic, enlightened persons of all times. It leads to a total transformation of religion,
yes, of the entire culture.

48.
Mother's web of life - being embedded in "Heaven, earth and the community" - is existential (spiritual), it is
the all-uniting factor. Religions on the other hand, are a derivative of reality. The latter identify themselves
with a certain savior, a holy book, dogma's and convictions. They are exclusive.

49.
All people are part of "Heaven" (the Divine, Emptiness, the Cosmos, the Great Consciousness),
the earth and the community. This common denominator is universal. I call this "Existential Consciousness".

50.
Religions on the other hand, can never become the common denominator of a multi-cultural
society. A culture based on spirituality on the other hand, is existential,
inclusive, open and democratic.

51.
While "everybody" embracing Existential Consciousness as the foundation of existence- both
Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists as well as Atheists, Agnostics, Hindu's and Taoists
should recognize themselves in it - the separation between state and church (the
existing religions) is strictly observed.

52.
Since She includes all areas of life "Mother Worship" itself isn't a religion.
On the other hand, it is called "The Original Tradition".

53.
Because She is above the parties - She is "beyond God" after all - the Great Mother is
symbolizing "Unity in Diversity", while all great religions are Her Sons; thus
bringing reconciliation in a world that has been teared apart.

54.
      She "loves Her Sons"; therefore respecting their principles (although "She would like to see
many things differently"). Hence, for instance She can confirm, that "there is only one God
and that Mohammed is his prophet"*. On the other hand She Herself still proves - despite
thousands of years of patriarchy - to be present in the religions of the Sons.

* God is Her Light Body after all. PS. This also means, that nobody has to give up his/her belief or conviction.
The Mother doesn't take anything from you; She is contributing something.

55.
There appears to be still memory of Her, as expressed by terms like Eternal Mother (Taoism),
Maha Matri (Hinduism), Eternal Wisdom (Mysticism), Hokhmah (Judaism), the Mother (Shinto),
Emptiness beyond Emptiness (Buddhism), Mother of God (Christianity)
and House of Allah (Islam).

56.
Deepest spiritual Realization, religion, mythology, psychology, historic evidence and the
latest scientific research ("vacuum physics") are all pointing in the same direction:
the Mother as the (bottomless) foundation of life.

57.
She is marking a new era, in which the universe appears to be "feminine", thus causing a turning
point in society, a shift from patriarchy to life-centered values, in which (wo)mankind may
turn from materialism and individualism towards serving the Whole.

58.
This is expressed in values like: connectedness, durability, inclusiveness, community spirit,
love, care, respect, compassion, peace, justice, commitment, courage,
perseverance, effort, service etc.

59.
Having thus balanced your life, you subsequently extend your "achievements" toward your (direct)
surroundings: your home, your family, your relationships, the street, the neighbourhood, the
commune and the region...

60.
With the aim of transforming Self and Society* to begin with A New
Spirituality, A New Psychology, A New Health Care, A New Society, A New
Culture, A New Economy and A New Earth.

FINALLY

61.
Individually and collectively we are at a turning point. The Revelation
of the Mother is crucial in this regard.

62.
Mankind will only survive, if the aggressive self gives up its ego-ambitions. This is only
possible by going back to the Origin - the Great Mother - in order to be
reborn as a new human being.

63.
This is both true for men as well as for women, since many of the latter have likewise
identified themselves with the ego.

64.
A society on the one hand, based on "democracy, human rights and tolerance" while
on the other hand on "profit, exploitation and injustice" is deeply hypocritical.
In such a system ethics degenerate into ONE big lie.

65.
The commercialization of society has made the other an object. The dehumanization e.g.
the use of the other for one's own purposes as the foundation of our system,
isn't that the sad all time low of our culture?

66.
Hence, it is crucial to realize, that capitalism purposely promotes the destruction. Because,
people deprived of their spiritual/cultural/social and ecological context are
willing victims of self-addiction and greed.

67.
Don't resist the degrading developments. Instead, become painfully aware of them. The longing
for Wholeness will take you back to the Source, where you will be renewed.

68.
Therefore, take refuge in the Great Mother.

69.
Peace only emerges, if humanity will be (once again) fitting in in Her web
of life e.g. "Heaven, earth and the (new) community".

70.
Justice is obeying Mother's "Law of the Universe". Profit, accumulation and even affluence
don't make us happy. Happiness is related to the quality of existence:
Being rather than having, freedom, love, friendship,
connectedness, meaning, creativity....

71.
The consequence for the socio-economic system is, that the growth-economy has to be
replaced by a balance-economy. Obviously, after democratic decision-making,
thorough preparation and in an orderly way.

72.
In practice, this could be realized if everybody without exception, obliges him/herself
to doing every day half a day volunteering in favor of the community - for which
one will receive a basic income - while the other half working for him/herself:
work, career, making money, hobbies, doing nothing. 

73.
This is killing two birds with one stone: stopping the expansionist, destructive e.g. suicidal
science/technology/capitalist system (STC-complex: prof.dr.E.Vermeersch)
and the beginning of the healing of society.

74.
Primary costs like house, costs of living, education, health care, transportation etc. will
be adjusted to the new situation, causing a dramatic lowering of basic costs.

75.
The decisions are being taken by the Self-sovereign community, organized in "organic"
democratically organized layers as there are: family, street, neighborhood, commune,
county and country, everything according to the principle of subsidiarity.*

* See also: "Sociocracy" and "Transformation manifesto for the 21st century"

76.
Thus, community and state have to be distinguished. The former is the living
democratic body, while the latter is the administration, only.

77.
In the community democracy women play a central role.


The Mother is all-embracing; hail to the Mother.

AMARGI
(Greeting from Sumeria 2300 years BCE. It means "Freedom" e.g. "Return to the Mother").
