Yes, Barbara, we do live in times where anyone seeking can find what they need to better understand what the Wise Ones, the Holy Ones have tried to teach us. I am grateful for that, and also that there are others out there interested in the things that am interested in, and sharing their own thoughts. Together, we all contribute a little light which will help to break through the pall of darkness and ignorance that has been build around this world. I'm not too much inclined to Gnosticism, which can sometimes be as narrow as conventional religion, but there too the seeker can find deep truths, especially about the role of the feminine in Christ's life and teachings. It is no coincidence that the three women closely associated with him are named Mary - three aspects of the divine feminine which the ancients understood as part of the Godhead, but that the church cut off. I have been playing with an article on that for a long time now, and may one day write it, though there are some good books already written on it. This recent goddess thing that we find all around is an attempt to address this imbalance, but to me, makes the mistake of replacing god with goddess instead of bringing them together as they really are: God the Mother/Father, the hieros gamos or sacred unity of male and feminine principles. Sorry for the overlong reply, and thank you again, Barbara, for your interest and support. Wishing you the very best, sister. Tosca xx

Dear Kathleen, this is way too late, but I couldn't figure out how to reply, and even though I occasionally find my way, every time I get lost again. I want to thank you for the comments you have posted here, and your kind words. It means a lot to me that someone reads my posts - that at least what I write is on interest to even a few others. Thank you, dear Kathleen, and also for bringing more beauty into the world in your fb and other posts. Lots of love, Tosca
