In Her chest
She gathers the soul-sparkles
The beings and becoming children of Dawn
Incubating seen unseen events
In Her womb!
She’s seen springing in downward sprite
Clad in Kali’s smile
Penetrating the home of the mortals!
Armed with Love’s warriors
Faiths and Will
She has landed here among us
With the word from Ether
To make the final master strokes
On ‘the canvas’ crowded by face o’ chaos…
Her ethereal strokes in countless colors, each for each
To mutate ‘the frame’ into a farm of infinity
Which flowers simplicity, serenity, singularity
Whence His knowledge is unveiled by Faiths
Her action, unfolded by Will.
Into the gate of our home we call Gaia
Stands now a conjoined shadow of smile n smirk
Gifting us an appearance of choice
For the destiny already scribed
in Her glory’s gold.
Divine Feminine? How do we see it?
Divine Feminine is the most intense force which is,
relentlessly at work; integrally present in all details, all aspects, all moments,
with perfect discrimination and proportion;
equally poised in light or dark as the eternal, lasting love.
When perceived, it is the grand subjective reality, that is
infusing, creating, fermenting, designing and transforming the objective reality,
at micro as well as macro planes of life.
A festival, as an ode to the Feminine at work in the world!
This festival is now inviting from across the globe, the soul of our species — the artists/life-designers — the teachers, mothers, healers and all lovers of humanity and our planet! The festival aims to gather the global community of essential workers of Her light, to explore, express and enlighten our collective being which is in the midst of an evolutionary birth. Whether you are a worker or worshiper of Her light, you are welcome to register your membership in the ‘global feminine’ community, and have special access to group-events at this festival. If you wish to express your camaraderie at this festival, you are welcome to submit your film/documentary that is aligned with the mission and themes.
In the current age of misidentified ‘masculine’, and difficulties in discovering the authentic ‘feminine’, a global platform with a gaze over our contemplations and activations, is an imperative need of our time. Behind the frightening face of our current world, lurks the peaceful and creative smile of the Divine Mother! Shall we discover and unveil it for our beloved humanity? In camaraderie, let’s become the perfect contributors to the integral vision of ‘that’ coveted future — the future of Life in Mother Earth! Whether you possess the will or wish towards this mission, shall we simply gather at this festival to sing in unison, and become the global heart of the ‘Grand Feminine’?
