Songs about the Father God

Ancient practitioners of the religion of the sun worshiped a heavenly sky father who was seen as the father of all living things and who embodied the masculine half of creation. To the ancient Proto-Indo-Europeans he was called Dyḗus Ptḗr, “the Shining Sky Father,” and was the highest and most revered divinity – the father of gods. He became Dyaus Pitar in the Vedas, Zeus (Dias) in Greece, Jupiter in Rome, Dievas to the Baltic peoples etc., and was called Atum in ancient Egypt.

Songs about the Mother Goddess

The Spiritual Mother has been symbolized as numerous mother earth goddesses. She was often portrayed as the earthly counterpart of the heavenly sky father, and seen as representing the divine feminine half of creation. The Spiritual Mother has been deified in many different forms – as Durga to the Hindus, Ceriadwen to the Druids, Isis to the ancient Egyptians, Lada to the Slavs, etc.

Songs about the Spiritual Son

A solar hero is central to much of ancient mythology – usually experiencing major life events at the solstices and equinoxes, his life followed the path of the sun. Examples include Horus of ancient Egypt, Quetzalcoatl of the Maya, Dionysus of the Greeks, and later Jesus.
