I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way
than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. (sonnet xvii by pablo neruda)
Come join us for this New Moon Goddess Meditation tonight! The moon will be in Scorpio, so the theme is "Sacred Sexuality ~ I honor my body, my power, and my passion." In our world today, sexuality is largely confused and wounded. We, as a Global Sisterhood, now have an opportunity to dream a new dream, where our sexuality is seen and felt as sacred and safe to express. Our sexual force, which encompasses much more than the act of sex or being sexually appealing, is pure creative power that can be used to enliven and enrich our own lives and the lives of others. When we learn to properly wield our sexual power, we become stronger, more balanced, whole and healed, and able to actualize our visions into service for the world.
Sisters, we have a lot to heal in our world within the realm of sexuality. Many women and men have been wounded by this terrible imbalance. We call to every sister to rise, if not for yourselves then for your sisters, mothers, grandmothers and daughters. We have the opportunity to rise, hand-in-hand, and reclaim our sexual power as a lightning rod of healing for our world.
Let us reclaim wholeness, purity, and the true power of our sexuality – together!
