The humility of forgiveness 

  In my heart space within meditation, all I could see was her face suddenly appearing just in front of mine without warning; a surprise. My loving & innocent inner child was the first to respond hugging her and loving her maternal energy. Soon the wounded side of me woke up, attempted to buck, but theContinue reading “The humility of forgiveness “

Why I didn’t run, though I wanted to…

Trigger warning for sexual abuse and assault survivors.  A few weeks ago, I started back to online dating. It was the third “date” with one man and I was still feeling ambivalent about where I saw things with him.

As my eyes lay closed this morning, my mind’s eye imagined lying in my bed back in the bedroom of my marital home.

Instead ofContinue reading “Nostalgia’s Permission “

It is said that Kali is the most misunderstood of the Hindu Deities as she is often mistakenly seen as the Goddess of Death.  While she is the “dark” aspect of the Primordial Mother Goddess Parvati, Kali’s domains are creation, destruction, rebirth, time & Shakti, or Divine Feminine Energy. She rides and is associated withContinue reading “Kali Under Fire”

The Allowance of Grace

Recently I read somewhere that people have set points for both their highs and lows. The author went on to explain that we have a happiness quotient that we live beneath. When the elation becomes too much, we become fearful. So we only allow so much Grace/love/happiness to fill our vessels before we stop theContinue reading “The Allowance of Grace”

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
