The Holy Spirit (God the Mother) Gives Birth to the Creation

And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep and the [Holy] Spirit of God [the Mother] was moving over the surface of the waters. (Genesis 1:2)

The spiritual understanding and gender preferences in this material is based upon the teachings of Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, who says that the Holy Spirit is God the Mother. God the Mother is actually very present in the scriptures, where She is usually called Holy Spirit or Wisdom. According to Shri Mataji God the Father is the Witness who watches God the Mother do all the work of Creation. For example, here is John 1:1-5 written according to Shri Mataji's teachings. You will clearly see God the Mother in it now:

"In the beginning was the Word [the Omkara of the Adi Shakti] and the Word was with God [God the Father] and the Word was God [God the Mother]. She was in the beginning with God. All things came into being by Her, and apart from Her nothing came into being that has come into being. In Her was Life and the Life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it." (John 1:1-5)

By the Word of the Lord [by the Omkara of the Adi Shakti] the heavens were made and by the breath of Her mouth, all their Host. (Psalms 33:6)

[Shri Mataji explains about the Omkara of the Adi Shakti. While reading these words of Shri Mataji, please keep in mind that Shri Jesus is an incarnation of Shri Ganesha]:

"Christians have to rise above this Christianity and have to understand that it's such a great thing that Christ came on this earth as the incarnation of the principle of Ganesha. Ganesha becoming Mahavishnu is a very big thing, which one should try to understand. Ganesha is the Son of Shiva. Shri Ganesha is the first one who was created before anything, any atmosphere, anything, because He is the Omkara and the Omkara is the first breaking [away] of Adi Shakti from Shiva, that sound of Omkara. From there started Omkara and He is the one who is the embodiment of that Omkara. So the Sound is Shri Ganesh... it is His power that was created first, as the foremost thing, just to create Holiness. "Pradakshna" is this holiness that was created. Pradakshna [Holiness] was created and then everything was created in the Sea of that Holiness." ((Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi — Christmas Puja, Ganapatipule, India—25/12/90)

"What if the biblical God is not male? What if the biblical Creator, in the original language of the Bible, is spoken of as a female Spirit? Genesis 1:1 to 2:3 describes the Creation of the universe by an all-good, all-powerful God. The Creation—not just of all objects, but also of all ideas—sets the tone for the entire Bible. All else, all the remainder of the pages that make up the texts of the Hebrew and Christian holy words are commentaries. Backgrounds and foregrounds, highlights and dim places, all politics, history, art, relations between men and women, all stand in relation to the first chapter of Genesis. Lets look at what the opening lines of the Bible say about the Creator:

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Genesis 1:1-2)

Spirit of God, in the original Hebrew, is ruah Elohim. Ruah, the word, meaning "Spirit," is a feminine noun. Elohim is a grammatical feminine plural form of God. Nothing is said about a bearded old man in flowing white robes. What is said is that Spirit, denoted by a feminine word and a feminine plural word, is a Creator and moves.

As we read the Bible, we should not forget that all life springs from Spirit. There is no fearsome Father to run from, no overbearing Mother, no absent Parent to search for. Remind yourself; make a note if you need to; no matter what you might have heard before, the Creator is not a large man. This reminder will help clarify the Bible for you. The God of the Bible is described as feminine Spirit." (The Feminine Spirit—by Lynne Bundesen)

[In the preface to his book, Rabbi Rami Shapiro states]:

"It is no small thing to note that Wisdom is feminine. The original language of the texts, both Hebrew and Greek, make this very clear. Hebrew Chochma and Greek Sophia are both feminine nouns. The authors of the Wisdom books took this gender specificity seriously and envisioned Wisdom as Mother, God's consort and bride, the Divine Feminine through which the masculine God fashioned all creation. Further, they saw in the union of masculine and feminine a powerful analogy for the greater unity of all in the ineffable Godhead that transcends our imagination.

To keep the power of their language before us, I refer to Wisdom as She and to God as He, knowing that it is in the unity of the two that the full Godhead is manifest. It is important that you do not mistake my use of language for something it is not. I do not believe that God is literally male or that Chochma is literally female. We are not dealing with biological facts, but with theological archetypes residing within each of us. What is needed is a marriage of the two within the individual.

The unity of these forces creates a new person, the divine anthropos, the fully integrated human who is called the sage in these Wisdom books. The sage, regardless of gender, is married to Chochma; he or she is the partner of the Divine Feminine." (The Divine Feminine in Biblical Wisdom Literature—by Rabbi Rami Shapiro)

"And the earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep and the [Holy] Spirit of God [the Mother] was moving over the surface of the waters. (Genesis 1:2)

"Thou dost send forth Thy Spirit; they ["All that is"] are created and Thou dost renew the face of the ground. (Psalms 104:30)

Now the Lord is the [Holy] Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is [awakened within] there is liberty! (2 Corinthians 3:17)
