How do you feel about destroying what must be destroyed in your life?
Psychic clutter, spiritual scar tissue, lies that we call truths to avoid painful change, apathy that obstructs our fulfillment, despair that eclipses faith, patterns of abuse and neglect…. there’s always something to burn. And we better get to it if we want the life we want. As Joseph Campbell said: Destruction first, then creation.
You know — right this very minute — what’s not working in your life. You don’t have to think about it for too long. The question is: How do you feel about destroying what must be destroyed in your life?
Two things were cosmically coinciding for me: My deeper study of the divine feminine and goddess mythology, and the need for some destruction in my life — destruction so that I could create my deepest desires.
“More than any other goddess, Kali has the power to free you from what keeps you stuck… She appears fearsome to those who fear letting go of their veils, but when we’re open to her power, she is the mother, the teacher, the Lover.”
Kali used to turn me off. The blue-black skin, red tongue on display, and all that blood. She’s insane, I thought. But I studied her more and learned that she is, ultimately, for me, about fierce love. Her teaching: cut through ego, pulverize restriction, burn fear of the future.
