"The word eve means life; the goddess Eve is the mother & nurturer of all life. She is the creator of the world & of all living beings. Lady of the Beasts & steward of all growing things. Even in the bible she is protrayed with a snake, a potent symbol of the vital life force found in every living being, representing rebirth & regeneration. In 1 of the Gnostic texts it is Eve who calls Adam to life. Eve is the embodiment of primal female creative energy, of the powerful urge to create & sustain life. She is active femininity & relatedness to all that lives. She is life itself."
