Hallo Tilburg!

THE ETERNAL FEMININE AND
THE TRANSFORMATION
OF RELIGION

(Educational Project)

Mother Church * Church of the Universal Mother
Branch of The Original Tradition

"There are two types of people: one that seek freedom
(spirituality), the other seeking security (religion). Both needs
are genuine. Because of his/her love for the people
a true master is offering both

Mother Church is aimed at people, who feel attracted by the Great
Mother as the Ultimate Reality
and a New World based on feminine
values. Since the established Church increasingly fail to provide the
necessary renewal of religious life, we consider it as utmost
important to at least try - however incomplete - to fill the
gap. It is not an attempt to establish a religious organization.
It is rather a virtual project, aiming at giving you inspiration,
encouragement and compassion

Seven Principles as a Precondition for Renewing Western spiritual-religious Tradition

1. God didn't create the world out of nothingness, but rather Nothingness is giving birth to both God and the universe, the latter continuously returning to their Origin

2. This Nothingness is a Vacuum, a Cosmic Womb, also called "Great Mother" and "Her" Law of the Universe: the dynamic balance between death, rebirth and the web of life

3. It is the foundation to a "feminine" world view: interconnectedness, love, care, cooperation, solidarity, justice, wholeness and harmony with nature

4. Christ isn't that unique beginning, neither is he the "Only Begotten Son of God", but rather a chain in a long tradition of "dying and resurrecting Godmen" (a.o. Osiris, Tammuz, Baal, Attis, Dionysos....)

5. Core of the tradition is its continuous renewal through spiritual Realization e.g. God-Experience. "Jesus doesn't need followers, but successors". Moreover, sacred sources of all religious traditions are cherished equally

6. Women have leading positions on all levels. They are incarnated Goddesses

7. Main mission of the tradition is to Restore the Wholeness of Life: "Heaven (God-Realization), earth (the body, harmony with nature, lust for life, sex) and the community (self-sovereignty, integration, solidarity)". One way to experience this is through spiritual practice e.g. our Universal Way

We call this renewal "The Original Tradition"
with the "Mother Church-Church of the Universal Mother" as one of its branches
(See also: "Great Mother Buddhism")

It is because he (God) was foolish by not knowing his Mother, that he said: "I am God, and apart from me there is no one". The Mother hearing him talking like that, exclaimed "Don't lie, Jaldabaoth..."
Valentinus in E.Pagels "The Gnostic Gospels"

"The biblical "Sophia" is the Mother of the Universe, the highest deity in Heaven, "equal to God". In the Russian Orthodox Ritus She is still considered to be the All-Embracing One, the personification of the "Eternal-Feminine"              

"One of the most popular tales in Russia is "The Visit of the Mother of God to Hell". This "proof" of Her limitless compassion (to visit the victims of eternal punishment) is directly linked with the archaic myth of Inanna
going to the Underworld searching for Her Lover"

"The title "Mother of God" (Theotokos) for the Madonna was exacted from by the people (431, Efese), who wanted to restore the status of the Original Great Mother. Hence,  the concept of the "Mother of God" has
to be taken literally"

"Cybele, the Great Mother is being considered by Emperor Julian as the Ultimate, giving birth to the Gods, which in their turn are begetting the visible world"
                         J.Bidez "La Vie de l'Empereur Julien"                 

"Jean Gerson, chancellor of the University of Paris (around 1400) denounced images of the Madonna, symbolizing the entire Trinity as being the fruit of Her Lap"
                                  L. Huizinga "Herfsttij der Middeleeuwen"

"The Black Madonna's are in direct lineage with the Great Mother: the African Black Mother, Kali, Cybele, Isis and Artemis. F.e. in 679 the Merovingian King Dagobert II established the cult to "the one which today receives the name of Our Lady
and who is our Eternal Isis"

"The Holy Grail as Vessel of Abundance is symbolizing nothing
but the Cosmic Womb"

"Darkness precedes the Light"
Inscription in the altar of Salerno Cathedral

God didn't create the world out of nothingness, but rather Nothingness
is giving birth to both "God" and the world. The Eternal Feminine
is the Ground of Existence.

"The Madonna as "Queen of Heaven" - as expressed in countless sanctuaries, patronesses, churches, religious orders and festivals - has always played a dominant role in popular devotion. Christ really comes second"

"Consciously or unconsciously, Marian theology is moving toward a significant reinterpretation of the original Christian concept of
the Godhead as consisting of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit"
                                     S. Benko "The Virgin Goddess"

HMS' teachings are universal, including all traditions. Being Nothing he embraces
everything, without identifying himself with any particular philosophy or belief.
He neither has followers, nor has he established any organization. His
passion is to be available to every sincere seeker...
