I love that my spirituality is deepening daily. My connection to the Divine is one of the most cherished aspects of my life. I know how truly blessed I am.
There are times when a deep and close tie to the divine is a wee bit of a pain in the tuckus.
*I will pause and allow for the gasps of shock*
Yep, I said it. Here is the thing with my spirituality and tie to the Goddess. It is not masked in ceremony and ritual. It is an honest, day-to-day, moment to moment and down to earth communion. I have no issue with dropping to my knees in humble thanksgiving or standing my ground and insisting on some boundaries. They are one in the same for me. I don’t look at the Goddess as unapproachable. Hell I go to Her with everything and when She pulls stuff I disagree with I will totally go in to bargaining mode. If you don’t try you will never know, right?
One of my beliefs is that I share every aspect of my life with the Divine. She and I go through life together and because of this I do have boundaries in place. If you are very close to the Divine you will occasionally have visits from it. It can come in many formats and I am good with most of them. The one that irks me? When She makes herself at home in this body and puts me in the corner without notice. Or when she puts me in the closet and only lets me out when she has taken what she wants. Sound insane? Actually this experience is common in all religious beliefs. The closer your ties to the Divine the more startling they become.
Yesterday was one of those days. I had the joy of spending the day with Kin. At one point the Mother came in, put me off to the side and took over.
Let me stop here and give thanks for the fact that my love is just as experienced and tied to his spirituality as I am so he didn’t go running downing the street while dialing 911.
Do I understand why what happened did? Yes, I do. Do I have any objections to it being done? Nope, I don’t. Do I have huge issues with the way it occurred? Oh darn Skippy I do! That being said this evening there will be dedicated time to the Mother and a reminder of boundaries.
Will it do any good? Probably not, but at least I will feel like I did something.
Peace and blessings my loves….
