Lasalle, Quebec (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
After receiving a good education, author Alexander MacLeod wasted his youth in frivolous pursuits, then gave himself over to the vice of omnivorous reading on a vast array of subjects. He went through a variety of jobs, became a computer programmer, worked in the aircraft industry and became a college professor. All of which would lead to his first published book, “The Splendor of the Goddess” (published by Trafford Publishing).
Some years before he retired, just before falling asleep, he had a vision of the “Triple Goddess.” That vision and those that followed thereafter are described in “The Splendor of the Goddess”. It was not the sort of book he had ever expected to write. “Sometimes you just have to stop and deal with what your subconscious throws at you,” says MacLeod.
After the vision, his life has changed forever. Before his vision, he was what might be described as a mild “patriarchalist” – indifferent though not vigorously opposed to the advancement of women and the elimination of their oppression. Following the vision, he had become an active male feminist. Now recognizing that women are like the Goddess, he sees divinity in every woman.
In The Splendor of the Goddess MacLeod examines the spiritual and psychological dimensions that underlie a hoped-for paradigm shift toward a saner, more sensible world. These dimensions are viewed through a highly focused lens of personal insight and experience. The book is also a review of the author’s stance towards a post-patriarchal world and offers a rendering of accounts which many men of intelligence and integrity may find themselves undertaking.
“The Goddess is coming,” states MacLeod. “She is returning to her ancient great estate, though properly speaking, She has never left us. She has waited, perhaps, in our unconscious, until the time for her advent is propitious. That time is now. When She comes, and when you look upon a woman – any woman – you will behold the Goddess in her glory.”
The return of the Goddess, says MacLeod, entails the empowerment of women and the establishment of a universal matriarchy.
A valuable addition to the small but growing library of pro-feminist literature written by men, “The Splendor of the Goddess” will be of interest to students of Women’s Studies as well as anyone interested in at the place of women on the universal stage.
