The first one is to rehabilitate God by acknowledging the fact that in its perfection it cannot be deprived of feminity. The second is to balance the mystery of Incarnation with the mystery of Spiritualization. the emergence of one of the key archetypes of humanity's collective unconscious: the anima, in all its multiple manifestations. He describes Mary as the "temple of the Spirit: The New Age," and goes on to detail the biblical, psychological and mythological aspects of the doctrine of Mary which "articulates the recollected fullness" of life.

This is what he means by saying that the male Jesus Christ includes the feminine, but the feminine is present only implicitly, as the recessive component. The feminine contains inverse proportions of the same, for Boff.

In this critical survey of Marian literature, a leading Latin American theologian offers fresh insights into the ultimate meaning of the feminine as it applies to men, women, Mary, and God
Here is a book that reveals to us just how important Mary is in our lives. SHE is written about in the Old Testament, and Thus arrived to bring to us the Savior. We see through the cracks of Theology that Mary Is the Feminine force of Jesus' mission, and attained the right, though visions, and messages that right to be titled "Goddess" as well as the Theotokos.
Here is the personal Personality of God. Pray to Mary and She will take it to the presence. Mary and the Holy Spirit are one!
It is a pity that the whole book does not live up to the level of the ideas it conveys. But nobody is perfect. I would just like to comment on two of these ideas, which I think are worth giving some thought. The first one is to rehabilitate God by acknowledging the fact that in its perfection it cannot be deprived of feminity. The second is to balance the mystery of Incarnation with the mystery of Spiritualization. This is to my knowledge a daringly innovative proposition whereby, the hypostatic union of the Son with Jesus is balanced by the hypostatic union of the Holy Spirit with Mary. This idea stems from the fairly obvious assumption that only the divine can engender the divine. Therefore Mary had to be raised to the level of God before engendering God-in-the-flesh. This would have taken place through a specific union with the Holy Spirit. An interesting consequence of this mechanism is that it offers significance and coherence to the two roman catholic dogmas of Immaculate Conception and Assumption. These two dogmas which have heretofore remained somewhat obscure and marginal, without any conspicuously related significance to the rest of what christians believe, fit perfectly well into this view of the relationship between God and humanity. Another benefit is to clear the devotion to Mary of its rightfully suspected idolatry and to make it available in a new understanding, to the whole of christianity.
Underscoring the advent of a new age at the urging of the feminine, Leonardo Boff says "we are entering the Age of Sophia... the emergence of one of the key archetypes of humanity's collective unconscious: the anima, in all its multiple manifestations." He describes Mary as the "temple of the Spirit: The New Age," and goes on to detail the biblical, psychological and mythological aspects of the doctrine of Mary which "articulates the recollected fullness" of life. "We are assisting at the shaping of a new constellation of the human psyche," Boff asserts in a work which establishes the relevance of Mary for the modern era without sacrificing the devotional aspect of her cult. Those seeking a truly contemporary myth of Mary will do well to read Boff's book.
