The legend promises that the restoration of the Chalice will have the power to heal the wounded earth. When he returns to the mutilated Fisherman-King, he will cure his wound, the cause of the disease that plagues his kingdom. And the Chalice, we argue, is the neglected female element, the Sister-Nymph of Christianity, the wife of Jesus. What would our world be like if the Nymph had never been lost? And how will it be when it is restored? If the Nymph had not been lost, the female element might have been established from the beginning as an equal companion of the male deity. Feminine qualities and feminine characteristics would enjoy the same values ??over the centuries, and the completion of the individual, which this would imply, would have similar effects on the family and the community. The denial of the female element as our partner and friend has deprived us of ecstasy and has condemned the male-female relationship to be only a faint shadow of the joy that the archetypal couple shared in the garden. The injured male, often pampered and with a deep-rooted sense of despair, seeks his lost ecstasy in all the wrong places - in violence, power, materialism and the hedonistic pursuit of pleasure - not realizing that he can only find it in relationship with the female. One of the saddest realities of our culture is that the hegemony of the injured male has led to emotional exhaustion. Where the woman is not appreciated, the man can not have real intimacy with his partner, with his "other half". Deprived of his equal complement, because woman is considered an inferior object, the frustrated dominant male exhausts everything. "Where the sun constantly shines, there is a desert beneath. The forests go dry, the rivers go dry, the earth cracks. What we’re left with is desert "The hierarchical model of patriarchal institutions, according to which all decisions and powers are in the hands of the totalitarian ruler or the oligarchy at the top, loses its vitality as the female consciousness awakens and strengthens in our modern world. Patriarchal institutions, which teach that strict obedience is the highest of virtues, begin to crumble under the feminine influence of free thought, creativity, intuition, and relevance. This "resurrection" of the female element has allowed the things that women traditionally care about most - the education and upbringing of children, as well as the improvement of the quality of life - to slowly take a place on the "agenda". Under the influence of this recovering female principle, there is hope for the peoples of the Earth to be enlightened and to realize that they must preserve the unique gift of life, of which this aquatic planet Earth is the guardian. "The voice of the nymph" is finally heard.
