Musing on the Goddess
For the past few years, especially, I have been fascinated by the idea of the Goddess. Not some ancient archetype of long ago, but the Goddess that is part of our nature–the Sacred Feminine that lives and breathes within us all.
I have been talking and writing about Her for some time now. Some of my writing buddies were there when I first came face to face with Her. She is, it seems, a part of my psyche–woven through my history and ever-operating in the background in my present. My preoccupation with Her amazes even me. Despite the things that are happening on the surface of my life, I am aware of Her presence always right there, nearby, awaiting my notice.
I am certain I have spent lifetimes singing Her praises, dancing in Her honor and praying to Her for blessings and guidance. I am equally certain that for a very long time it was not safe to speak of Her to anyone.
Today is a new day. The Goddess of Now is alive and well. This is Her time. It is up to those of us who remember, to breath life back into our own Goddess nature. It is not about going back to some other time, it is about now–this holy moment. It is about allowing ourselves to remember the Sacred Feminine principles of Love and joy, beauty and grace, appreciation and kindness, nurturing and caring, creativity and resourcefulness, transformation and rebirth, and so much more.
Over these past few years I have been meeting my sisters. We recognize the Goddess in one another, sometimes before we have exchanged a word. It seems some of us are coded to respond to the very word Goddess. I know I am. Nothing gets my attention faster.
I have much more to say about the Goddess of Now. In the mean time, I would love to hear from any of you who feel a resonance with Her.
Love lies at the heart of each of us. Sacred Feminine and Masculine are part of our Divine nature. Love yourself. Celebrate your nature.
