The forces of the universe are in a battle with each other and they are beginning to balance themselves. The powerful masculine patriarchalism is being challenged by the universe’s powerful forces of feminine consciousness. In the ancient Vedic Tradition, the Divine Mother presented herself in very dramatic and awesome ways through the mythological figures of Durga and Kali. According to that mythology, there were many demons in the world who were making life very difficult for many people. Only the wealthy and the powerful who had communed with these demons were experiencing success and any form of comfort.
