Fire of Truth

Posted By Ara on Apr 30, 2015

I will not censor myself for your tastes

Pull the veil over my truth to give you comfort

Silence my words for your ears

Or change my heart to fit into the confining box of your definitions.

I seek those that don't demand that I fit into any shape they have carved

For they know I break the mold.

I embrace those that embrace me as I am

Dance of the Butterfly

I want you to think about the pain you have gone through or are going through. How you feel like your very core is disintegrating, like the layers of yourself are falling away.

Durga: Hear Me Roar

"You've got a heart as loud as lions So why let your voice be tamed?"

Last weekend I attended a Durga focused intensive high in the mountains near Boulder.

Long May We Love

Posted By Ara on Apr 13, 2015

In the face of a world filled with fear, violence and destruction the only feasible solution that I can see is to love. Love greater and bigger than we ever have before.

Take that love and wield it in the fight against the injustices in the world, use it as a blanket to warm the coldness that sets in; use it as seeds to plant the world with hope once more.

I Want To Know

Posted By Ara on Apr 12, 2015

I want to know who you are

When you don't have to hold back anymore

When the barriers crumble and the veils dissolve

And you stand in the brilliance of your unfolding

Bared like a shining lotus among the waves

I want to know your truth

When you no longer have to pretend

When the threads of the past are scattered

The Song of The Ancients

Posted By Ara on Apr 12, 2015

I heard a song deep within the core of me, the lyrics spoken in a tongue long since past from this world, and yet I understood.

I knew. Even without the translation I felt it in my soul.

This was the song of the Ancients, the path of the Shamanic Priestess, the Healers of the Earth, the Warriors of the Divine Feminine.
