“Shakti is the primal energy of the Universe. She is the embodiment of power and strength coursing through creation, animating and enlivening all that is.
All forms are manifestations of Shakti. She is the Great Mother. She is the source from which all the other goddesses spring. She is also the fiery solvent that sometimes, either spontaneously or in response to certain spiritual practices, flows into the soul and dissolves the boundaries of the separate self, restoring our essential unity with the Supreme Being..”
“Shamans live in a world where the Creator is not separate from the Creation, Heaven is not separate from Earth, and Spirit and matter infuse each other. There is no division between the body and the spirit, nor between the visible world of form and the invisible world of energy.”
“She never smoothed her wild edges. She never stopped writing new chapters. She fell. She rose. She danced. She unraveled. She let go. She evolved. She was a tangled mess. She was strong. She was fierce. She was brave. She was a badass. The ocean was her therapy. Grace was her religion. She lived like there was a fire in her veins. e. Forgiveness was her freedom. She lived like there would never be enough time. She lived like there was fire in her veins. She lived.”
“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
Patriarchy may try to negate body and flee Earth with its constant heartbeat of death, but Goddess forces us back to embrace them, to take our human life in our arms and clasp it for the divine life it is— the nice, sanitary, harmonious moments as well as the painful, dark, splintered ones.
If such a consciousness truly is set loose in the world, nothing will be the same.
It will free us to be in a sacred body, on a sacred planet, in sacred communion with all of it. It will infect the universe with holiness. We will discover the Divine deep within the earth and the cells of our bodies,and we will love her there with all our hearts and all our souls and all our minds.
“One by one the women step up and commit the forbidden act of biting into patriarchal thought refuting it, smashing it, discarding it and beginning again in the very beginning when women loved their bodies named their gods authored their lives when women refused to surrender except to life as it pulsated through them. Women reminding us there is nothing wrong there never has been anything wrong there never will be anything wrong with woman.”
