Feminine spirituality, for the uninitiated, is either ignored or feared.
It is quiet but looming. Invisible, but massive. Unassuming but helpful. Always kind, always there. Teaching. Uniting. Loving.
Like most of us, certain turning points in our lives demand a deeper investigation into the journey we are on. Sometimes that journey is really challenging. And during those times of introspection, I have found solace within the goddess culture.
It is hard to describe, but it is a bit of a mix of tough love, positive thought, rock-solid belief in oneself, and hope. It’s about self-worth and value.
There is a lot that goes into improving one’s life. Lots of steps, but they are possible and gentle, and they lead to a walk that you take every day. I incorporate various practices into my life, such as mindfulness, gratitude, and meditation; they, in turn, teach me patience and understanding. As a result, I accept sorrow and hardship, knowing that better times will come.
Regarding the drawing, it certainly has the “ignored or feared” element, but the dog (and I love the hat) is looking at a map. And that map is about our passage and focusing on where we are going and what we are doing while getting there.
I’m pretty sure you will see these two characters again. Hard to pass up drawing eyes on boulders or dogs with hats.
