You’ve Swum into the Sweet Mermaid’s Lagoon – where the sweet
mermaid tales are !
Sweet Mermaid will share stories about the sweet varieties of mermaids, and
info n the history of the species.
The sweetest of all the mermaids is Kuan Yin, the Ocean of Compassion of
the Far East personified by a very sweet-faced Goddess.
Our own Sweet Sea Goddess is the Mother of God, Mary. We at EcoMermaid want
to make it clear that we do not take anyone’s religious beliefs lightly,
we just seek to understand all religions, their origins, and to emphasize
their similarities and especially, their true applications and intentions
of compassion.‘Mar’ or ‘ mer’, meaning ‘sea’, is a
part of the names of many ancient deities, and in other languages, words and
symbols meaning ‘sea’ are omniprevalent. And why not ?
in other articles – see Queens of the Waves - we’ve seen how the moon has
traditionally been associated with both the sea and with all females, and
how the moods, the phases, of the moon have been associated often with the
three distinct ages of the lives of women – pre-menstruation, menstruation,
and post-menstruation seen as the waxing, the full, and the waning lunar phases.
Associating ourselves with nature is, well, natural, since we are animals,
and as such, are biologic beings just like algae, just like whales, made up
of whirling particles of energy and matter, just like the stars themselves
and as subject to the cosmic laws and the planetary systems as are all other
life forms, although in our dentials and fears, we seek to escape these facts
in our modern world.
Our world and cultures – some of them – have become so divorced
from our sources, that the so-called spiritual institutions have degenerated
into only apologistic and defensive walls damming up reasons to fend only
for the basest of human appetites.
They spew out war rhetoric in the name of the Prince of Peace. They grow
fundamental in their hidden racism and tribalism and refuse to see the truths
We at EcoMermaid seek to Clarifize and to find solutions. To tears away the
dogma and to find our original connection to the real Great Spirit, the Holy
Spirit, the All that lies beneath the tangled webs of lies and mis-translations
holding the souls of most of society prisoner.
We hope to heal the rifts between nations, within them, and to promote peace
not o nly among peoples and individuals, but between mankind and nature.
Our perception of our planet is more appropro – that she, the Planet,
Sea, is young – we are a young planet- fragile, vulnerable, and in trouble.
She’s seen as a mermaid, of course, since our planet is almost 80% water.
Much of the warfare of men against her, our planet and all of nature, stems
from the old Mother Nature idea of a mother or grandmother being whose children
we all are, who can whip up a frenzy of forces against us and against whom
all (especially men), have psychologically felt a need to subdue, to break
away from, and to vanquish in aggressive combat.
Bringing down the planet, in fact, is a suicidal act.
Since in most of our long cultural traditions the land at least, and the whole
planet, is ever associated with the female element, then we want to make it
clear that she’s a beautiful young thing, and far from being fierce,
is ailing, weak, and needs to bring out the protectiveness inherent in the
masculine spirit too. Instead of hunting – ( o ne of the fathers of o ne
of our EcoMermaid staff had been a hunter in his youth and when he’d
grown into an eighteen-year-old, he’d noticed how few wild animals there
are left in the woods, how helpless, cornered, desperate they are, and he’d
recognized that hunting in the 21st century is therefore an unmanly act.)-
instead of that cruel act, we want to inspire the newer generations to adopt
a caring and husbanding attitude toward all of nature.
To know that our planet is a Sweet Mermaid, a beauteous kind of female, the
kind associated with Aphrodite in beauty, with Mary in kindness, and with
a tender-aged pre-teen in age, is closer to the truth.
Sweet Mermaid has not o nly planetary updates o n the UltimateMermaid, our Planet,Sea,
but has a wondrous assortment of mermaid tales to share with us about –
of course – sweet mermaids and their deeds !
