It is only the feminine, a mother, who can parent without another. A mother can be both mother and father. Now, many disagree with me on this but I know it to be so. It is she, who can impart love without cause, wisdom without books, forgiveness through acceptance, the use of imagination and the power of creation both positive and negative.
There is only One Mother. She is the Mother of all beings and of all worlds. We are born of her, we exist in Her and we dissolve back into Her again and again.
