The Mother Archetype

Updated: May 19, 2020

What's that?

My mother?

Your mother?

Our Mother?

The Mother?

Yo Mama?

The Mother Archetype is

All of that and more. Mostly she's an idea.

My Mama is just an idea? Just some woman one imagines?

Yes and No. But No this isn't all about your Mama nor mine

This idea of the Mother Archetype is about all mothers of all kinds both real and imaged.

That's what the word Archetype means. Think Great Mother, little mama, Hot Mama, Mother Goose, Ma Kali, Hot Mama. Again she's all of that and so much more.

Now here's a strangely weird notion. Seen or unseen, the Mother Archetype is always there.

She's with us now. 

She carries the Transcendent Function.

Transcendent Function? Say what? No worries. More about that later.

Next time we will talk about what's good and what's not so good about Mother in Part 2 called The Mother Complex.
