In the Term (GOD/DESS) I have placed an intentional break as to represent the complementary nature of God and Goddess. For many the Goddess concept will be difficult to grasp, this is the result of our being for so long indoctrinated/taught the idea that the creator is only male. Now surely we can hear in the church, mosque and temple on any given Sunday that we must respect our women. This idea is wonderful; unfortunately it has not been enough to simply say it. Part of this or rather a major part of this is due to the lessons we give our children on the idea, belief and concept of God. Now I have heard brothers, men in general refer to woman as goddess; this is used when the brothers are trying to compliment the woman's physical beauty. Most of that is in order that the brother might spend the night with her! Now being married to a Goddess myself I am fully aware that her physical beauty exists, but what of her divine self?

The divinity of the Afrikan woman has been placed in a worldview that is not the original view Africans had and some still have of her. We are currently living in a foreign idea of her divinity and who she is. Currently most western religions, or rather all of them have her in a low position in spirituality, she is thought of as secondary even an afterthought. It is as if one side of our brain was disregarded as not necessary, could we truly function as a whole human being? Victims of stroke may have one side of their body inoperative, now certainly they can continue to do most things but really they are not as they used to be! This is the same condition of Afrikan men and our people worldwide, we are operating with only a part of ourselves, the part of us which is male and we are not operating correctly.

 

I contribute that a major part of our current state of existence is retarded per result of not recognizing our women as the GODDESS. Understand that this GODDESS idea is not simply complimentary, or some play to praise women because just as our women are not operating as GODDESSES, neither is our men behaving like GODS. I am saying that the very nature of the Afrikan woman is that of the GODDESS! This very statement contradicts most of what we believe about ourselves, and what we see of ourselves nevertheless it is a truth. It is my observation that the Afrikan family is not whole because the male portion neither recognizes his own GOD/self nor the GODDESS/self of the female portion. Until this is done our families will stay in the conditions we currently exist in.  In another essay entitled, "Holy Family: The Afrikan Holy Trinity" I wrote,

 

"A God-Head that does not include female energy is not only exclusive and misogynistic but also does great disservice to the family concept. How can children be properly reared in an environment that is either anti-woman, or belittles woman or places her as secondary and even an afterthought?"

 

How then do we find her, the great her that is the GODDESS? Where will we find her? Why has she been downplayed, why has she been forgotten by us, and what would be the impact if she were remembered?
