Why do I call Destiny the Mother of Spirituality?


By Helena Lind

Indeed, I brand Destiny the Mother of Spirituality because a long time ago, humanity embraced the principle of Destiny across almost all civilizations because it replaced chaos with order, gifted us significance, direction, purpose, and transcendence, and inspired great faith systems with its maternal providence.

In my nonfiction publication The Destiny Book: Rediscovering the Mother of Spirituality, I expand on the origins of the original non-religious paradigm Destiny, how it rose from chaos and introduced order, like only a provident mother can. No wonder religions later incorporated Destiny's cosmic brand core into their narratives. It is not without reason this trailblazing power was once predominantly represented by female incarnations like the ancient Greek cosmic Goddess Ananke or the legendary three Moirai whom the Romans renamed The Fates.

Whether self-created, human-invented, or both—the Mother of Spirituality was the original mover that influenced human outlook, philosophy and the consequent creation of belief systems, later eagerly "borrowed" by established faith systems to enhance their divine powers, reflecting Destiny's significant essence and influence in the echelons of the invisible.

And that's just one more aspect why I capitalize Destiny as a proper noun, just like all our other venerable philosophies and worldviews.

Allow me a brief quote:

We behold the vertex, i.e., pinnacle, the original mover resulting in creating human outlook and religion, our Mothership in the universe. A fun testament to this is that our splendid, established religions rushed to "adopt" Destiny to supercharge their divine powers with its significant essence.
