Fathers of the Christian church strongly opposed the worship of Mary because they were well aware that she was only a composite of Mariamne, the Semitic God-Mother and Queen of Heaven; Aphrodite-Mari, the Syrian version of Ishtar; Juno the Blessed Virgin; Isis as Stella Maris, Star of the Sea; Maya the Oriental Virgin Mother of the Redeemer; the Moerae or trinity of Fates; and many other versions of the Great Goddess... According to the Office of the Virgin, she was the primordial being, "created from the beginning and before the centuries."
Lets start at the beginning, the letter M. This is the first letter in the spelling of the word Merry. It is also the first letter in the spelling of the homophone-
Mary, as in the Matriarch of Christianity and the Mother-God of Jesus; the reason for the season. And thats not being facetious. Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season; the winter ritual season of Western culture. And his Mother was/is Mary. She is the Mary of Christmas. See? She has been immortalized and venerated by a global, annual ritual that has millions of people repeating her name.
Rightfully so tho. She brought the Earth a Christ.

Can you see how Goddess, as the Divine Mother (dare I say Mother-Whore) archetype is invoked by a seemingly harmless greeting: "Merry Christmas!" Invoked... Why? For what reason? It can't possibly be to honor Mother Mary. Although she did the impossible and birthed a God into flesh, She is not included in the Holy Trinity. Alluded to? Perhaps by way of a ghost... Soo cold. B.u.t., if it's not to increase her, then by Law of Opposites it must be to decrease her significance. To bind her archetype; the Divine Feminine. Hell, the feminine period. (Period, hahahaha... Whew!) I would say the feminine principle at-large because Mary Magdaline didn't receive her honors either...
The priests crafted the spell "Merry" into a sensory illusion, to trains our hearing and our sight to not recognize Her, even though she's hidden in plain sight. Millions of people are saying Merry Christmas and Im willing to bet the majority would draw no connection to Mary, the Christ's Mother. Mary Christ-mas. No, she is not being venerated- because she cannot stand on her own, without the masculine God-Christ. Although Merry means "cheerful and lively" it is an adjective; a descriptor. Not a noun or a verb.
Meri. Ta' Merry (ta'Meri)- "One of the ancient names used for the nation in Northeast Africa called "Egypt." (Browder) So which came first? Meri or Mary? And if Meri came first by way of ancient Africa, then is it coincidence that Jesus's (Yeshua's) mother, from that very region, is also named Mary? Hmmmm... This makes me think Mary might also be a title? An initiation... Just as her son was initiated into the Judaic priesthood and holds the title, Christ.
Mk. Thats all for now. Food for thought.
Enjoy your rituals.
Whew!! This semester is done! This last month was hectic. I honestly did not have the energy to write posts. I would think about them, lol. A couple nights I started, b.u.t. just couldn't finish due to falling asleep. The few free minutes I had were spent in deep relaxation- on my couch with my feet up- #NetflixAndChill #Sorta or, soaking in my bathtub- Ritual Bath #Yassss.
I did some bruja on my job situation and the whole situation has shifted in my favor. Thing is, like all energy magick, there's no way to tell Universe 'how' to answer the prayer. So while things are much better and Im not at-risk of walking away- Im also now challenged with the task of increased responsibility. Which I love, Im thankful. I also come home from work and horde my peaceful moments. Like magick.... Abracadabra!
So, now the semester is complete and I have a few days to catch-up on my passions: writing, dancing, laughing, visiting folks and sights, LIFE!!!
Gotta run to SHAPE Community Center to help prepare for tomorrow's Pre-Kwanzaa Market. Look for more posts in the next coming days.
Houston: See y'all next Saturday. (See previous post.)
Please take some time and review the archives. As the end of the fiscal year approaches we have various deadlines to meet. In the evenings my energy is reserved for relaxations. Therefore, to stay relevant and updated on postings, we created a calendar for postings. Look here on Wednesdays and Sundays for #thoughtpieces. Other days we will post some of our favorite shares from the WWW....Tonight Im feeling Ledisi. #Dynamic...
