Why do most religions consider God to be male?
Are women slowly assuming leadership in our world or are they actually reclaiming an ancient and sacred role they once possessed for thousands of years?
How might your life change/improve if your concept of God shifted to considering God to be female?
The Tao Te Ching begins, "The Tao that can be named is not the eternal Tao." To consider God to be exclusively male limits our experience of God.
Discover how we are programmed to see God as male and how this then drives our entire society. A male idea of God has lead to a belief that men are ordained to control events around the world. In reality, what we need today more than ever is the love of a Divine Mother and the individual and collective power of women.

Of the the 10 Commandments, nine forbid certain types of BEHAVIOR. Only one prohibits a certain type of THOUGHT.
"Thou shalt not covet" discourages our desiring what others possess. In addition to Judaism and Christianity, both Hinduism and Buddhism discourage coveting.
Well, if "covet" equals "desire" then human beings seem to run on coveting. Certainly, the American economy is driven by coveting.
Having desire is normal and natural. Coveting, on the other hand, is desiring what someone else has so that he or she cannot posses it.
And, believe it or not, we all do this without realizing it-- to our spiritual detriment.
Discover the ways in which you covet without even knowing it and how this can lead to a poverty mindset and living a life of lack.
