The Goddess PrincipalBy: Afua LamumbaHathor: Queen Mother Fertility GoddessWomen are the central foundation of human evolution as well as the guardians of the portal between life and death beginning with the ancient Egyptian Fertility Goddess Hathor. In Egyptian mythology, Hathor is depicted as the central pillar of the three pillars in the Acacia tree of Saosis, which the Egyptians considered to be the "tree of life", referring to it as the "tree in which life and death are enclosed", and Hathor was the divine vehicle for which life and death traveled. She is perceived as the first female deity and/or being because through her even the Gods were born. Along with the inundation or ("Great flood") of life flowing through the milky waters of the sky Goddess's entrance, love and beauty are also manifested as the peace and joy that lies inbetween the two pillars that stands one on each side of the fertility Goddess's throne which represents the woman's womb because life gets through no one but her.Through her womb Hathor gave life to the great Sun God Ra making her the truest representation of love fertility and beauty. In pre-dynastic period, which was the time in Egypt predating c3200 B.C, Hathor was known to have had a very complex relationship with Ra. In one myth, she is the eye of Ra and was considered to be his daughter, but in later mythology, when Ra assumed the role of Horus with respect to Kingship, she was considered to be Ra's mother and wife; thus the meaning of her name, "House of Horus". It was said that The Queen Mother Sky Goddess gave birth to Ra each morning on the eastern horizon as his mother and as his wife provided a seductive means of attracting The Sun God to fallow her moon to the west and conceived through union with him each day. With Ra standing by her side, the fertilization of creation formed nations of stability, power and wealth. The sun God was later recognized as the first male being and/or deity depicted as the originator of "The Ennead" which consisted of their (Ra and Hathor's) children (Shu and Tefnut, Geb and Nut, Osiris, Set and Isis and Nephthys) whose powers resisted the up rise of Christianity throughout the 5th and 6th dynasties until about 400 BC; A time when Mothers taught their daughters how to be women and Fathers taught their sons how to be men.The mother Goddess was highly worshipped for giving birth to great power, virtue and the world itself. She was also responsible for the resoluteness of nations and ascendance of empires built on honor, loyalty and sacrifice as she stood on the threshold of life and death, connecting the two worlds. Hathor was greatly regarded with an abundance of respect as she is the principal foundation of life, often compared to Sophia, "the wisdom and wife of God". Two, which is the symbolic number of wisdom in accordance with the divine tree of life, is essential to the balance of human evolution and what used to be known as family structure and values adjacent to the value system of duality represented in one of the kabbalistic texts listed as Proverbs 3:13-19 in the "Torah (Tree Of Life)" Which states…"Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens".This text is one of the truest representations of duality and Wisdom as the female emanation of God. According to the Torah, the spiritual seed of God was first realized through the uttered word of the Divine Female, Sophia. The seed was then manifested in matter through the womb of Mother Nature. Duality as it is represented here, goes as fallows… (Day/Night, Life/Death, Sun/Moon, Good/Evil, Man/Woman, Left/Right, Black/White etc…) All the laws of nature from our lives here on earth, all the mysteries of the spirit realm and all the powers of the universe are hidden deep within the magnificence of a woman's womb from which wisdom and creation are born.The Goddess Principal in western society has been removed from family values due to Paganistic ego and Chauvinistic values that were used to undermine the very foundation of human evolution which is why all the foundations of the earth are out of course. The Goddess Principal was and still is a very powerful part of a nurturing ability to love and uplift our family's quality with life sustaining substance that was meant to carries on throughout our legacy. Even till this day, the woman is an essential, but very different half of a much bigger puzzle brought together to create and nurture life here on earth, but until we re-embrace The Goddess Principal, we will continue to fall short of realizing that mother is the spoken word for Goddess and Father is the spoken word for God on the lips and hearts of every child; For a child who walks on without a woman's wisdom and/or a man's guidance, stands alone as a man and/or woman lost in ego and/or sadness and will almost always fall short of realizing their greatness. This destructive state of mind has created a generational curse leaving our children vulnerable to life altering mental ailments and fears which most often enables them to reach their true potential and/or fulfill their destiny.As People of color, we have suffered a devastating lasting impression of the worst kind. Immorality, which the tool our oppressors used to prey on our temptations successfully breaking down the foundation of our family structure from generation to generation as we were plagued with Fear, Envy, Pried, Greed, Sloth, Lust and anger. The Goddess Principal was important because by nature, women carry the weight of the world on their shoulders, but this weight wasn't meant for us to bear alone. Our counterpart represents the regenerative powers of life here on earth, and both aspects of life are necessary for the evolution of procreation… Nurture the child, uplift the nation… A principal to live by, not to be forgotten!!!Hathor: Fertility Goddess/ Ra: Sun God The eye of Ra Hathor/Queen Nefertari
