Daily Micro: Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World ~ The Whore of Mystery Babylon

In Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World, Stephen J. Bergstrom gives creative voice to visionary souls in process of awakening.

Through imaginative device, Yesterday’s Visionaries in Today’s World reveals two contrasting visions that shape contemporary existence.

In one, conquerors traverse the world as a series of endless privileges secured through material means and patriarchal oppression.

In the other, conquered and oppressed individuals and groups perceive that consciousness animates nature, humanity and the spirit of a Living Earth.

Acknowledging (the Whore of) MYSTERY BABYLON

As healers and teachers, we return. Murdered as witches, we drew upon the natural power of the Earth, upon the Aeon Sophia who became the Earth.  We oppose that which spreads upon the Earth.

Come, let me tell you our story.

Before the rise of the Christian cult, we enthroned Kings, Theocrats and Pharaohs through the revered rite of Hieros Gamos, sacred mating. Women, descendents of the matrilineal line, in service to the goddess Sophia, the Earth Mother, anointed those who would rule for all are born through women and known by all.

In Babylon, the Theocrats sought to overthrow the sacred rites, to elevate patriarchy, to cause men to anoint men, to destroy matriarchy. My priestess sisters were in travail and I came from the Greek Isles to Babylon.

In the seven-story Ziggurat, the Theocrats moved to birth the new anointing. In the villages and cities, the people resisted this new idea and women would not venture into the stronghold.

They came and took me and made me march in great pageants with the one they chose to rule over Babylon. Though I rebelled, they dressed me in robes of purple and gold but the people recognized the fraud.

When they forced me to stand beside the King, the Theocrat at the top steps of the Ziggurat, the people gasped and called me The Great Whore of Babylon. And in that moment, matriarchy passed and patriarchy ascended.

I had been drugged. Handlers propped me up. I was tied and bound to a vertical board. I had been penetrated and abused and like my future sisters, made into a plaything.

And when I heard the cries of the people, “Look at the Great Whore, they screamed, I bound my soul and promised that with the power of the goddess and in the mighty power of the Earth, I would return and oppose ascendant patriarchy until the end.

And for that reason, and in their fear, they call me MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

For in the goddess, we have power they fear.
