So since I was a child I’ve had more of a masculine energy. I was the kid who played boy games and fought with them. Chased them and beat them up with umbrellas…
I didn’t really found a feminine version of myself until about six years ago. I’ve heard about this book Spiral Dance by Starhawk and recently I got it for free from Thriftbooks! Score!
I started reading it a few days ago and I felt so connected to it. At one point I read the following paragraph which made me realize I am doing the right thing by getting closer to the Goddess- even if sometimes it makes me feel a little weak.
CreationAlone, awesome, complete within Herself, the Goddess, She whose name cannot be spoken, floated in the abyss of the outer darkness, before the beginning of all things. And as She looked into the curved mirror of black space, She saw by her own light her
radiant reflection, and fell in love with it.
She drew it forth by the power that was in Her and made love to Herself, and called Her “Miria, the Wonderful.” Their ecstasy burst forth in the single song of all that is, was, or ever shall be,and with the song came motion, waves that poured outward and became all the spheres and circles of the worlds. The Goddess became filled with love, swollen with love, and She gave birth to a rain of bright spirits that filled theworlds and became all beings.
But in that great movement, Miria was swept away, and as She moved out from the Goddess She became more masculine. First She became the Blue God, the gentle, laughing God of love. Then She became the Green One, vine-covered, rooted in the earth, the spirit of all growing things. At last She became the Horned God, the Hunter whose face is the ruddy sun and yet dark as Death. But always desire draws Him back toward the Goddess, so that He circles Her eternally, seeking to return in love.
All began in love; all seeks to return to love. Love is the law, the teacher of
wisdom, and the great revealer of mysteries.

With this beautiful quote I will leave you to think and remind yourself this New Years that you are love, and all we have to give is love. Love is enough.
