Our Lady of Light
Great Mother of Fire
Goddess of the Flame
Liberate us from ever-deeper layers of the lower-self.
Burn away what hinders us on our journey.
Om Mata Kali, Sri Ma Sri Ma.
“I am immersed in the flame –
The flame of time,
The flame of love,
The flame of life.
The universal fire flows through me.”
~ The Radiance Sutras, Yukti Verse 29
A candle lit in honor of the dance between light & darkness:
“I will love the light for it shows me the way;
yet i will love the darkness for it shows me the stars.”
~ Og Mandino
Happy Winter Solstice and New Moon beginning!
Embracing the gifts of this dark season, and sowing the seeds which will soon see the light of this brand new cycle.
“Because there are real gifts in darkness- deep rest, new dreaming, a sharpening of other senses that allow us to feel the present moment shape of our inner landscape. A seed left sitting on the table in a well lit room remains a seed. But a seed placed into the dark moist earth splits open and pushes new life up toward the light. What kind of seeds might you be in your life and our shared world?” ~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer
