That moment of blindness,
We turn into radiance.
It is the point of transition;
From fear into hope,
And Despair into faith.
And when helplessness evolves into courage,
Inaction into resolve…
We heal from old wounds,
And become whole again…
We light the candles on the Tree of Life
As we turn from the darkest night;
To help illuminate the world.

The beautiful dark Madonna comes down to us
from the our beginnings.
She has many names: Ana, Tiamat, Isis, Cybele,
Demeter, Sheba, Mary Magdalene,
Mary, mother of Christ,
Maya, mother of Buddha,
Fatima’ daughter of Mohammed,
Nana Bakula, Spider Woman, First Woman,
Parvati, Oxum, Corn Maiden, Eurzuli,
Oya, Morrigan, Ishtar,Tara, Gaia, Saule, Amaterasu,
She is of the earth and the sky;
She is our mother and our mother’s mother, and so on
to the very first spark of life,
She is always,The Great Mother.
She is us. We are she.
