The Lonely Goddessian
When it comes to both the online and offline Goddess Worshiping Community, I often feel like I came too late to the party. I see the evidence that there once was something more out there. I see blogs and discussion boards that haven't been updated in years, and I wished I had discovered them when they were in their hay day. I don't believe that the Goddess Community is dead. I does seem like it still very much alive in some areas. Z Budapest is still offering teaching via online on her website, and I have come across a few websites of Goddess Temples and Churches. I just seems like for someone like me who doesn't have the funds to pay for entry into an online Goddess school, or doesn't live in a major city it's pretty easy to find oneself feeling like the lone and lonely Goddessian. And unlike more mainstream binary Neo-pagans it does seem like the peak of the online Goddess community has past.
As much as the critics of Goddess Centric Worship love to scream about the "harm" we bring to paganism, we are very much a minority. For every Goddess Centric Pagan there are many more preaching the "need" of balance "obtained" through the observation of the God/Goddess binary. I do long to come into contact with women, and even men who see the Goddess as I see here, Complete and Whole into Herself. Pagans who are not going to call what I do unbalanced, pagans who aren't going to lecture me about the "need" for the God in my practice.
This is why I created this blog, as a way to reach out the the Goddess Community. A way to get my views out as a Pagan Minority to the world in general. Any maybe a way to let any other Goddessians wandering alone out there know that they aren't the only ones.
