Sophia, Gaia, Herstory.

That's right. Sophia, Gaia, HERstory, not hisstory. So you know what I'm talking about, here's the excerpt from "Not In His Image" by John Lamb Lash.

Page 160

The story of Sophia is ongoing. Its conclusion cannot be written unless the sacred story is imagined and lived. Unlike the sacred narrative of Judeo-Christian-Islamic tradition, the mythos does not end with a catastrophic event at a particular moment of linear, historical time. The coevolutionary plot contains no final confrontation between Good and Evil. Its outcome is not fixed by fate or determined beforehand by a supernatural power.

Rather, the story of the fallen goddess is the open framework for timeless involvement in Gaia's transhuman purposes. It does not deny or discount human purposes as long as these are imagined in accordance with the larger life complex of the biosphere. Our survival depends on "a creative fit" into "Herstory." Gaia's law is not survival of the fittest, but survival of what fits Her purposes, what resonates to Her dreaming.

       What pleases Her, if you will."

What we need more of in this world, is right brain thinking.

And her story is correct. What we need more, in this pot of mess, is a little more 'dark' ness. Right brain thinking.

Tha's right. The darker side. The part which you pushed away and hid in the background in the dark somewhere. Now pull it out, dust it off and get it back to use again. Ok? Then it too will be in the light. Light light light, in the liiiight! Everybody, light light light, in the liiiight....
