“Making the heart of Mother love, that natural duad to the Father love that has reigned, brings the rising of the feminine and the balancing, at long last, of the masculine.” Mirari
This quotation concisely summarizes what Mirari is about. Mary of Nazareth is writing primarily to women in Mirari, but here she uses an important word that might be overlooked in the call for female presence in this world. The word is “balancing.”
Mary is not trying to exclude men. She stresses the feminine so much because she is attempting to corral women into greater solidarity and greater activity in our world. But she, of all people, with her close relationship to her soulmate, Jesus, knows that our world needs men and their contribution ever so much. Men have dominated, sometimes harshly, for many long years, and her “balancing” is seeking to end this imbalance between the genders.
Ask what our task is to be. Ask, whether we are men or women. We need guidance in creating a new world—and we know that a new world was the call of Jesus in A Course of Love. Mary echoes this desire in her manifesto, Mirari. She is doing her part to join in the groundswell of change that Jesus is heralding. She too is so heralding. Wait for God to speak to us, God to reveal our part. Then act from the whispers in our mind and the calling of our heart.
