Throughout the annals of mythology and spirituality, the devi - Kunti - (the Yin/Shakti opposite Yang/Shiva) has taken many forms and faces; some of these are translated accurately, others are not. Many have become owned (over time) by some canonization, doctrine .. or set of dogmatic rules.
Wholeness and the first separation
deva : d'e'v'a is the primordial masculine principle; an essence or principle, originally; ‘a bright or shining one’ from *div- to shine; the "sign" or "omen" of the energy which pervades; bestowing, producing or imparting; as with hot fire or passion from "above" (as in Heavenly); sometimes seen as a "gift" with the concept of going inward, within or in; the life in-breath; as an aspect of Brahma
devi : dh'e'v'i is the primordial feminine principle; placement or holding; potential to go beyond or transcend; consciousness potential as in "hidden" or "the inner self" with wonder, awe; the energy which pervades ; bestowing, producing or imparting; as with cold fire or passion of receptivity; that which has the potential to 'learn' or evolve as the essence of compassion with the power to obtain or become something else
Tao gave birth to One; One gave birth to Two; Two gave birth to Three; Three gave birth to the ten thousand things. The ten thousand things carry Yin and embrace Yang The two primordial breaths blend and produce harmony.
The Tao or "The Way of All Things" is a flow, an inter-penetration, an omniscience and an omnipotence and a homeostasis of both masculine and feminine, positive and negative principles 7000 years of Kundalini and the divine marriage
Hindu's derived the name Cunti/Kundi and all its variations that have formed the roots of Country, Kind and Kildare; Kundalini as it is propogated by the purveyors of "authentic Western Guru's" is nothing more than a thought-form (Tulpa) far removed from the Sanskrit roots of the word.
But then, the Primordial Feminine the first separation from the void is something that the conscious mind cannot manipulate or control for the simple reason that this one bit computer is nothing more than the product of one's dis-eased feminine .. a feminine that is separated from the Void. The Divine Marriage -- cross culturally
The feminine is the field in the pairing of the force and the field; she is sometimes represented as 'of the manifestation' ... 'of the earth'. In the Christian prayer, we find "Thy Will be done in Earth as it is in Heaven".
To most, she is mysterious, deep, dark sultry ..
This name was connected to the Hindu Goddess Ila. She was the consort of the Hindu God Siva in his form known as Il, and this form of Siva was known and worshiped in pre-Islamic Makkah. A great deal of cultural and spiritual interchange took place between the merchants of Makkah and India.
Rumi (1207 - 1273) writes:
"Woman is the radiance of God; she is not your beloved. She is the Creator—you could say that she is not created."
So, once again, we have a whore word .. Alla as the divine feminine, the "moon", the goddess of Fertility, the symbol of womanhood .. transliterated from Ancient Aramaic as "sin". Moon was worshipped in its threefold existence - waxing, (maiden), full (pregnant mother) and waning (old wise woman). The Virgin was the New Moon.
Muyiddin ibn al- ′Arabî (born 1165) wrote,
"To know woman is to know oneself, Whoso knoweth his self, knoweth his Lord"
Binah is the Kabbalistic feminine symbol for Understanding, a prelude to wisdom. "Binah, the Great Mother, sometimes also called Marah, the Great Sea, is, of course, the Mother of All Living. She is the archetypal womb through which life comes into manifestation." Fatima
Fatima (the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad) was considered to come from the level of angels. She is considered by many Muslims as divine in origin and several variations of a major hadith describe how she was conceived on the night of Mi′râj (ascension).
On this night Gabriel took Muhammad to Jerusalem and then to Heaven. While up in Heaven, he was offered some heavenly fruit, the seed of which was responsible for her conception, after the Prophet′s return on the same night and making love to his beloved wife Khadija.
and what would all of this mean to a Rule whose sole purpose was the control and manipulation of all of its people through the establishment of a Patriarchal "God" — of course, you'd have to be born of original sin. Isis and the Throne
To the pre-Christian Irish, water was the source of all life. Eire, after whom the country was named, was the superior Goddess of water and fertility, the island of Ireland being the body of the goddess. The Irish language has no word for the coronation of a king. This is because Irish kings were not crowned; they were married to the goddess in a ceremony called An Bainais - the wedding.
Therefore, we see the Divine Feminine, as the Source of Life, being expressed first by the means that humans may understand the Divine Feminine, in other words, Wisdom, being a feminine word, second, by the most holy names which express in a universal way (spanning cultures as varied as Egyptian, Hittitie and Celtic) that the Source of Life is the Divine Feminine.
Rumi again writes ..
"On Resurrection Day, the sun and moon are released from service: and the eye beholds the Source of their radiance, then it discerns the permanent possession from the loan, and this passing caravan from the abiding home. If for a while a wet nurse is needed, Mother, return us to your breast. I don′t want a nurse; my Mother is more fair. I am like Moses whose nurse and Mother were the same. Tantra
The basic tenet of Tantrism is that matter, and therefore the body, is also a manifestation of Sakti power, that is, the power emanating from the feminine aspect of Divine Reality. In the domain of the spiritual life, the same term Sakti signifies the devi that allows one to enter into contact with Enlightenment.
I am ... the mother of my father and the daughter of my son
