The Return of Ancient Goddess Wisdom

Goddess Wheel By James Roderick

If history is to be believed, the gods and goddesses were many and they spread out across the world, from the Sumerian and Babylonian cultures across the Mediterranean. They great centers were in Lebanon, Egypt, the Indus Valley, and the Sinai peninsula. While some were primarily concerned with their own agendas, others were more deeply involved with the protection and enlightenment of humanity. Isis, for example, the daughter of Thoth, the god of wisdom, was one of those dedicated to the upliftment of the human condition. Her many attributes include curing disease, weaning humans from cannibalism, instituting marriage, inventing the loom, teaching the spinning of flax and weaving of cloth, as well as the domestication of animals, grinding of corn and revealing the mysteries of wheat, corn and barley.


Today her name is being corrupted by our own planetary patriarchs who are afraid of the rising wave of female wisdom that threatens to bring balance to our world, and thus they have dubbed the terrorist group ISIL by the name of ISIS, polluting and distorting a deeper truth. As an advocate for the human race, these are some of her many titles: Divine Lady, Goddess of Fertility, Queen of the Earth, Lady of the Living, Goddess of Healing, Protectress of the Dead, Mistress of the Elements, Bestower of Divine Life, Ruler of Egypt, Queen of the Stars. How many of us could lay claim to even a tenth of this kind of industry and positive far reaching influence? Not many, I imagine.


In recent years, as the physical and historic evidence for the existence of Extraterrestrial World Civilizers has grown, there are some who chaff against the idea that we were once the children of the gods, and like children we were instructed in a way of life that we may or may not have invented ourselves. After all, they rail, are we not rulers of our own destinies now? How dare any race presume to dominate us, enslave us, or tell us what to do! We are free citizens of the world, and this is not to be allowed!

Like angry teenagers, we may choose blame the gods for all that has gone wrong on our planet, believing that elitist organizations like the Illuminati are a continuance of an ancient system of master and slave, “the have and have nots.” But are we better off now, than we would have been without the knowledge that they brought us? I believe we are, and now we are free to do what we want with that knowledge, and to make a better world.


While there is certainly some truth in the observation that for thousands of years there was once a more rigid structure to society that sought to give each person a role or a purpose, the gods left this planet long ago. Now we are in charge. And if we are honest, it is the human desire for riches, power and control that has created the social systems of the “have and have nots” in the world today.

We human beings are responsible for the suppression of knowledge and the manipulation of the masses for our own ends, not the gods. And it has been the power and resolution of the human spirit that has been hard at work for the past 500 years to change it with advances in science, new age thought, and a more universal and humanitarian approach to our own brothers and sisters. But we must ever be vigilant as we chart our own destinies in this world. Where we may have once given power to the gods, do we not now give over much of our power to our banking systems, our governments, our fossil based industries, our oppressive patriarchal religions, our political tyrants, and the good or bad leaders that we vote into office every year.

The gods were hardly perfect, but the jewels they left us were many. The question is now, what are we going to do with those arts of civilization? How can we create a more balanced, loving and sustainable world in the here and now? Now that we are in charge, what are we going to do about it? The answer lies within us all.
