Self emptying of the ego is not powerlessness, but
instead the opposite.
The image of a powerful, honest kenotic religious attitude is facilitated in part by images of the cervix.

The speculum of an honest religious attitude reveals to ourselves our power, vulnerability, humanity, and creational power in the universe.

The funhouse mirror of dishonest, culturally kowtowing, and egoistic religion needs the speculum of prophetic alterity.

This is a starting place of recovering the ‘feminine’ that has been so oppressed and marginalized in much of mainstream religious thinking.

Comments on the discourse of the Divine Feminine and the kenotic versus triumphalist/imperialist religious attitude are welcomed desired.
