We are in a time of great awakening as we reclaim our ancient roots and wisdom we dream, build and create the foundations for our future.
This is a moment of truth for humanity. Will we as a species navigate these times of great change and transformation? Will we evolve and create cultures of balance before it is too late? We have agency and choice, as many of us remember and awaken to our true essence and potential as a species, as part of the intricate web of Mother GAIA.
Key to this activation and evolution is the Awakening of the Sacred Feminine, our Feminine Power and Essence. The Lioness is roaring as women are rising. As we are speaking truth and healing, as we are remembering our sacred lineages. We are rising across the land.
There is love and truth telling and there are tears and wounds revealed in the sweet nectar of healing and redemption. There is embodiment, empowerment and forgiveness. There are new stories being told and powerful mythologies of agency and evolution welling forth in our songs and soul stories. We honor the lessons of time and our collective experience but we are not imprisoned by the past.
This is not only a Women’s Movement but a Human Movement, as males and females, transgenders and those who don’t identify with any gender but are curious in the array of roles that might be played, deeply integrate, reclaim and honor the Feminine part of our human nature so that we can be more whole and integrated human beings.
Though there are exceptions to the rule, historically the balance of power between males and females has been unbalanced. The feminine expression has been limited to an array of limited archetypes, when she is in truth, (not unlike our male counterparts in their full expression) multifaceted and multidimensional in her Beauty and Power and in her capacity for Compassion and Love.
SHE is the fierce clarifying wisdom of Kali and Durga: the compassion and healing nectar of Kuan Yin and Tara: The eros and agency of Aphrodite: She is Kokyangwuti-Spider Grandmother, who holds ancient knowledge and creates~weaves our human and earthly realms.: She is the Radiant Heart of Mary in her many forms, both Virgin and Magdalena and all the many miracles in-between.
We are Her and She is us. The Goddess serves as a teacher and a role model of what we can aspire to as women. She is a guide for any human being who drinks deeply from her Well of Teachings, who aspires to embody her, in Her glory, or prays to be graced by her boons: her path of self-revelation and discovery, and her gracious protection and empowerments as we navigate this human life.
SHE manifests through all traditions and though her practices have been quiet for many cycles she is rising again in old forms and new. She is beyond religion. The Goddess gives us teachings of remembrance, power tools of activation for what is to BE a full multidimensional woman in human form. She is Medicine for human beings of any gender who are ready to integrate the feminine aspect of ourselves as a path towards wholeness.
I love the dance and practice, the symbol and transmission of the Hindu Goddess Mahadevi. SHE of many forms, in particular in the practice of the Lalita Sahasranamam, the thousand forms-names of the Goddess. In this transmission we move through the different aspects of the Goddess that range from She of the Beautiful Breasts; to Creator of the Universe; to her Divine Union with Shiva, her consort the male aspect and an agency to her wholeness. She is simultaneously all these aspects even when they may seem contradictory.
This is a reminder that the Feminine, the Goddess expresses herself in multiple forms both expected and unexpected- both cosmic and human.
Mahadevi is also a primary aspect of what the Goddess looks like for our times: A Sisterhood of Women, infinite forms of Her Beauty, Wisdom, Compassion and Power rising up en-masse. SHE is a multitude of faces, voices, forms and colors, stemming forth from Her Flower and Gift of awakened consciousness Blossoming in our Hearts as our thoughts actions and deeds.
She is us and We are Her. Dancing in Simultaneity.
I join you today and in all days, as one who is walking the path and diving deep in the Mystery, and as one who continues to learn and remember. If we are truly souls of infinite magnitude and expanse then we are constantly deepening in our awareness as we synthesize and metabolize and as we learn and expand.
We are Many and We are One.
This koan is a promise of our potential and our essence. In all future moments and in this Moment Now.
May All Beings BE Happy, May All Beings BE Free.
