I sat with the Goddess this evening. The flame of an indigo candle dancing to her magic.
Sandalwood, rose and geranium scent the air.
She is present.
I am reminded of a quote I once read by Jackie Menzies in Goddess. Devine Energy.:
The very word ‘goddess’ conjures in our Western minds an image of the exotic, the beautiful and the generally benevolent but an ideal with perhaps just a faint hint of the tantalisingly dangerous.
Living in a society that holds us to an unattainable standard — focusing on external beauty, accumulation of wealth and acquisition of power — I chose to nourish my spiritual and emotional self.
