    In line with the Maiden, Mother and Crone aspects of the Goddess is the Son, Father and Sage aspects of the God.

    Of course, then again... we have the triple goddess of Maiden, Mother, and Crone...

    So why don't we have Lad, Father, and Gentleman (or similar)? I don't see why the men get fancy shcmancy names for the same life-stages. Why is he a God-King when the female counterpart isn't called a Goddess-Queen?
    I never heard of the historical model for the triple Goddess, just haven't come across that

    But the lad, father and Gentle man scheme has a clear analogy in Baltic paganism

    It fits for tonight, my existential problems are solved and I can sleep now, and live to whine another day.

    Glad to be of help!

    The God-aspects in Checkerism are:

    1. God
    2. Universe
    3. Restart at 1.

    Or, looking back:
    1. Universe
    2. God
    3. Restart at 1.

    I don't know....for me everything is an aspect of the Divine....everything emanates from a single perfect Divine Source. Through this, we are separate, but emanate from the same thing.

    So all I have to do is go outside, feel the wind on my face, breathe in...and there is the Divine.

    Hell, all I have to do is sip some delicious coffee in front of my computer, smile, and let out a good sigh.

    Or "reach out"... regardless of your circumstance, the Divine is always there.
