I dislike the name blanketed over a group of deranged and deluded people that have such blasphemous beliefs about women. The term given is ISIS. Isis is the Queen of Heaven, a sky Goddess. I find it extremely ironic, and I don’t think it is by accident, that this word is being burned into our conscious and subconscious minds to represent a mass following of sexually repressed men with a patriarchal mindset that should have been done away with by now. The year is 2016 AD, not 4005 BC. This is humankind’s fault and no one else’s. We are humankind. It is our responsibility to make sure this repression is not allowed to carry on.
Most have probably never heard of Isis, the Queen of Heaven. She goes by many names. Today she is known as Mary, the mother of Jesus. “Queen of Heaven was a title given to a number of ancient sky goddesses in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East, in particular Anat, Isis, Innana, Astarte, Hera and possibly Asherah (by the prophet Jeremiah). Elsewhere, Nordic Frigg also bore this title. In Greco-Roman times Hera, and her Roman aspect Juno bore this title.” – Wikipedia
Whatever your beliefs regarding a goddess of heaven, I desire to point out a major problem. The “divine” feminine has been rising within consciousness in recent decades. What I mean by this specifically, is that you can research it. There are books in stores, websites loaded with research at your fingertips, it is in movies, etc. Prior to the past couple of years, you could type in “Isis” into a search bar and find out about Isis and her many names and her connection to Mary and the Statue of Liberty and on and on. But today, if you type in “Isis” into a search bar you will most likely never come across this information due to the overwhelming mantra of ISIS associated with the personification of the opposite of anything feminine. You almost have to already know something about her to find anything regarding her. (For instance, I searched “Isis Inanna” to find pictures for this post.)
In my opinion, this naming of this deluded movement is intentional wordplay, called doublespeak. (doublespeak – language used to deceive usually through concealment or misrepresentation of truth)
In a way it is funny to take the name of a sky goddess, called Queen of Heaven – Isis, and give this name to the full embodiment of male sexual repression finding its release through a patriarchal religion. The fruits of this type of belief and thinking was written about in the stories told in the Old Testament Bible, i.e. genocide, rape, enslavement, mutilation. You know, all the fruits of “divine” judgement and retribution that we are witnessing (or thrown in our face) on all outlets of media and social networks. The Old Testament story is being retold – except this time it is from the vantage point of Abraham’s other son, Ishmael and his lineage that is taking the leading role. (It sucks to have been created to be a vessel of dishonor rather than made for a vessel of honor.)
They say, ok, James Allen said, “Enviornment is but a looking glass.” It is extremely important for my daughter, our daughter’s, humanity’s daughter, that we do NOT allow the feminine to be wiped out or repressed. Not through violence, not through fear and coercion, and not through wordplay.
Goddess help us!
