Speaking of Motherhood.... Darkness is what I call The Grand Cosmic Mother.
If Darkness gave birth to Light, then Darkness is the Mother of Light, Creator of The Sun. Darkness is the original Mother Mary, and the immaculate conception and virgin birth was originally the story of darkness making light. But we shun darkness and worship light. Patriarchal society tells us that women are secondary to men, like the Earth and Moon, revolving around The (male) Sun. And darkness is evil nothingness. I could not think of a more brilliant lie, and a more perfect excuse to masculinize god. No wonder everything is backwards.
I dream of a world, where darkness is celebrated as the creator of light. Where women are seen as primary creators, not secondary receivers. She is seen as the reason light exists in the first place. And men protect and support the life process, rather then exploit and profit from her labor
