Creation, a Feminist Perspective
by Jan Chase
In the beginning was the Great Mother. She loved so much that she gave birth to the world to have someone to share her experiences with. She created a pot of soup of life and out of it came plants of every kind small and large, floating and rooted. Small and large creatures developed in the sea. The great mother scooped up earth from the bottom of the sea and created forms of land. Creepy crawlers, wiggled out of the sea onto land and multiplied into a multitude of forms, flying, crawling, digging. Fish grew legs and walked out and some developed wings and flew in the air. Four legged animals of every imaginable type developed. God took her paint brush and created different climates, and different habitats, all were filled with different creations of plants and animals suited to that particular niche in the environment. And God smiled and was filled with delight at the ways her ideas were unfolding from her thoughts into manifest forms in the 3-dimensional world.
But there was more to do. Grand Mother wanted ones who could create as she did, who could communicate with her through their images and who could develop language. So she formed first woman. First woman was lovely but she too was lonely. So she asked for her womb to be filled with a man chld so they could make a family that would populate the world.
And so it was. Grand Mother Goddess created first woman who birthed first man and tribes and nations came to be.
