“Nature is not our enemy, to be raped and conquered. Nature is ourselves, to be cherished and explored.” — Terence McKenna. Wise words from a human being who explored his sacred journey to the end.
A time of evolving away from fear of the dark.
I was mindful of this last evening when I had to go out searching for Sammy-bear, in the dark, armed with a wind-up torch…oh, how I wish I’d wound it up fully and charged it beforehand, for there I was, walking, winding and calling, in the dark…crazy cat lady!
As I called to mind what Terence had said, I began to look around me in the moonlight.
I stopped and listened.
It became apparent to me that I was not alone and all around me was in its natural state.
I wonder why this is?
Exploitation of our deepest fears?
It is not possible to control those who do not fear death.
The night before my stillborn niece was buried, my grandmother kept the little white coffin in her bedroom, with her, close to the most powerful energy in the family, that of the matriarch.
Life and death were deeply intertwined and sacred for her…
She is not our enemy!
