Manifesto Updated

From Olivia Robertson
Co-Founder, FOI
February 10, 2010


Kindly add this as change from the last paragraph in The Manifesto, and for all booklets:

"The Archpriesthood Union, together with the Druid Clan of Dana and the Noble Order of Tara are Guardians to inspire the ideals of The Fellowship of Isis. All members are equal, and are not subject to anyone. All work with the Goddess - or Goddess and God - of their own Faith. Every Being - human, animal, bird, tree - element - is an eternal offspring of the Divine Family of the Mother Goddess."

Note added on March 4th:  This email was sent from Minette Quick on February 10, 2010 to all global centers.  Since there has been some confusion about whether this or an earlier version in the Samhain Isian News is correct, we have asked Minette to clarify with Olivia about which version she wishes our members to include on their sites.

Reflections by: Olivia Robertson

“To find the Other is to look within.
Gaze in a mirror. You will see your twin.”

Deity divides itself into two in order to experience joy, passions, controversy and adventure! Tears and laughter alternate with heavenly visions of perfection won through trials, courage and compassion. Deity manifests as loving Mothers and Fathers through all that is. However the whole Company of Heaven alarms us by being Creators – presumably our own creators! We have to be reminded sometimes that Divine Love is within us all, because we are part of the very mind of the Divine Father: the substance of the Divine Mother. So we too are eternal, travelling through time and place, which exists forever. We share divine love, learning to look after all our varied companions, animal, insect, plant on our earth. For we are learning to be Creators.

How do we distinguish between Divine Love and the creative process? One of the most moving of true life stories was told to me by my friend, the artist Desmond McCarthy. For me it unravelled the enigma of Gnosticism.
