In my experience, one of the chief qualities of the Sacred Feminine - the Goddess, Sophia, Aphrodite, Gaia, Grandmother Earth - is that of FLOW. The this-worldly river of life which she IS has a seamless quality, just like the vast and sky-like beyondness, transcendence and spaciousness that is the chief quality of the Sacred Masculine - God, Tunkashila, Father Sky, Dharmakaya. Like a river, the Goddess is ever seeking to weave together the various individuals, personality types, genders, races, cultures, philosophies, religions, species and landscapes into a single multifaceted Whole, in which every part realizes that it needs every other part. As you might imagine, we are each called to actualize this interweaving FLOW in our own unique way. For me, the interweaving of Nature - especially wilderness - and Humanity is one major way I am called to do this. I pray that each of us may discover our own part in embodying this sacred Flow :)
