The Primordial Feminine Tradition To say that a book challenges all the assumptions of the current world is almost a waste of breath. Every other book published in the late 20th century makes claims of that sort- perpetual discord and dispute being the very fabric of a fragmented, ultra-patriarchal society. But, of course, all these 'challenges' and 'rebellions', feminist ...more

So many people in todays world agree, that something is dreadfully wrong with our modern way of thinking and living and our society as a whole. Millions of books flood the market, whose authors claim to have found what is wrong and what should be done differently. Millions of people, many of them women, are willing to buy them, and give them a chance because they are desperate.

I was one of those people until three years ago.

Be it feminism, permaculture, neo-paganism or radical evangelicalism - n

A breathtaking sweep through philosophy and history, presenting the ultimate explanation for the way things are. I was especially struck with the use of the three Gunas of Hindu tradition to explain the different ways it is possible to interpret the world and act accordingly. It is a bonus for me that this book takes the feminine - and distinctly not feminist - view. If you think humans only got it right in the last few decades, you probably won't read this book, but if you do, prepare to be ...more

“The things sane societies loved, it hated. The things sane societies hated, it loved; the things sane societies tried to do, it tried to avoid; the things sane societies tried to avoid, it did with relish. It pursued chaos and hated order, it worshipped ugliness and loathed beauty. If sane people wished to dress as neatly and well as they could, these people were persuaded to dress as hideously and grotesquely as possible; if sane people wanted music to be melodious, these people (whether we are speaking of their "popular" or their "serious" music) were cozened into believing they liked raucous and tuneless noise. If women had been feminine, if home life had been secure, if children had been innocent, if men had been gallant, if art had been beautiful, if love had been romantic, then all these things must be stood on their heads. Of course, life was not always like that. Of course things had often fallen short of their ideals, or even of their minimal norms; but at least most people tried to do things properly and at least the surrounding civilisation encouraged them to try. Never before had the deliberate aim been an inverted parody of all that should be. Everywhere, in every area of life, a single principle reigned: inversion; the worship of chaos; the creed of the madhouse.” 4 likes
