A lot of good comes of silence… alone with our thoughts, feelings, emotions. Quiet time, personal retreat, centering. In all the noise out there, I had to go inward with the events of the past few days…reading, writing, letting emotions run through. I want to be only with my people, those in alignment with my own energies. I have no desire to be in those other energies right now.
My reading has been delightfully perfect and insightful, though … bringing sparkling clarity that comes out of contrast. This was deep contrast bringing powerful clarity … re-aligning with my core; all of who I am and love and breath filling a sacred space in me. — and, of course, perfect words showed up to help. (The Universe has such a sense of humor and just the most-precise way to reach me.)
For anything to grow, space is needed. If we wish to get more from life, sometimes it is necessary to do less instead of trying to cram more things in. – Sue and Simon Lilly
You have no idea what’s been unleashed. Pussies were never meant to be leashed; cat-persons know this.
This book–and the work of my entire life–is promoting a new type of activism. … It is based not in anger and indignation, but in joy and pleasure. It’s an activism that is undertaken by women, for women. It’s about taking other women higher in order to take ourselves higher. It incorporates spirituality, social justice, radiant turn-on, and reverence for nature. … This revolution is here to take the world to a new level of turn-on. – Regena Thomashauer
Our sacred core is pleasure, joy, and radiance. Oh yes…
My experience of the slave life and the situation with my employer made me realize that true power is very different from the power I had learned about in my political science classes in school. I now know that to be powerful means to be true to who you are, rather than the domination of others. – Mira Kelley
It’s My Pleasure…
… ancient, female-based religions viewed pleasure-seeking as an act of worship. … Pleasure is an ancient sacred path. … Pleasure is a path of hope and optimism, belief in love and, yes, romance! It’s a path that leads to happy endings and true love, but it’s up to each of us to create it. … But ultimately the journey is yours to take and create. And the pleasure will be yours too. – Maria Rodale and Maya Rodale
Joy, Pleasure, and Radiance 2017.
In the midst of this came my word for 2017: RADIANCE… as in Awaken your Radiance, Lit from Within, Let your Sun shine; know you are the Sun. Unleash your Radiance … we aren’t meant to be leashed. Our sensuality is sacred, pleasure is our divine power; self-recovery is a sacred journey I know well, and light a path through.
So much is coming together. I’m grateful, love it, and feel excited…and also honoring what my spirit needs. Hope you are too. Blessings and love, and take really good care of you. – Anne
Sharing music tonight, a song I heard tonight on the way home. One of those that sticks with you, and one worth listening closely to. Enjoy beautiful goddesses… – Anne
You don’t have to try so hard… you don’t have to give it all away… Do you like you… I like you…
Instead of relating to the word goddess or divine feminine as statements of religious belief or as literal representations of a deity, we can use them as reminders of the infinite forms spirit assumes in our world. We can also realize how recognizing these images and ideas of a divine feminine are not meant to enslave us, but to assist us in recognizing our own divinity. – Jalaja Bonhein, Aphrodite’s Daughters (quoted in Red Hot & Holy)
From our Red Hot & Holy Women’s group this morning.
Our lives, experiences, and the prose on the page draws our attention; conversation weaves through, and these are inspiring. Among the infinite forms spirit assumes in our world…is US!
