Ostara/Spring Equinox /Vernal Equinox๐Ÿ’ฅ

Ostara/Spring Equinox /Vernal Equinox

A point of perfect balance on the journey through the Wheel of the Year. Night and day are of equal length and in perfect equilibrium – dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer, in balance. But the year is now waxing and at this moment light defeats the dark. The natural world is coming alive, the Sun is gaining in strength and the days are becoming longer and warmer. The gentle whispered promise of Imbolc is fulfilled in the evident and abundant fertility of the Earth at Ostara. It is time for the hopes of Imbolc to become action. The energy is expansive and exuberant. It is the first day of Spring! Ostara takes its name after the Germanic goddess, Eostre/Ostara, who was traditionally honoured in the month of April with festivals to celebrate fertility, renewal and re-birth. It was from Eostre that the Christian celebration of Easter evolved, and indeed the naming of the hormone Eostrogen, essential to women’s fertility. The Goddess Ostara has the shoulders and head of a hare

A woman has taken to Twitter after discovering a hilarious term for unmarried women in the latter half of their twenties.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

Unmarried women over 26 are too old to be spinsters. ๐Ÿค”
Female, unmarried and over 26? Bad news โ€“ youโ€™re too old to be a spinster.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

A woman has taken to Twitter after discovering a hilarious term for unmarried women in the latter half of their twenties.

Writer Sophia Benoit shared her amusement with her followers after discovering the word โ€œThornbackโ€ was an old term for women in this age category.

The tweet has since gone viral, racking up thousands of retweets and likes.

Far from taking offence at the outdated term, many had an absolute field day with the idea they were โ€œthornbacksโ€.

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜†

Sophia is the Gnostic goddess of wisdom.

Sophia is the Gnostic goddess of wisdom.

Wearing Victorian dress and moko kauae (Mฤori chin tattoo) this woman presents a stable centre of self in the presence of both Western tradition and ancient Mฤori tradition.

She is a wahine toa (courageous woman) and her sword is a call to the heroโ€™s journey, to become the hero of oneโ€™s own myth.

โ€œWe’re not on our journey to save the world but to save ourselves. But in doing that you save the world. The influence of a vital person vitalizes.โ€

– Joseph Campbell

Her face is from my imagination, based on hundreds of 19th and 20th century black and white photos of Mฤori as well as my own tupuna (ancestors). She has become something entirely new in the creative process.

I am Swedish, Irish, Mฤori and English and have lived periods of my life here in Aotearoa as well as overseas in Samoa, Sri Lanka and China.

I find this portrait inspirational in terms of embracing diverse cultural elements with dignity. She has reintegrated the traditions on her own terms, with higher self-knowledge.

This painting presents a challenge to ancestral voices from the past.

The goal is to distinguish true guidance from inherited social programming that no longer serves. Conflicting advice, histories, tikanga and rules can sometimes feel like an impossible situation to navigate.

And yet within this portrait there is composure and wisdom in her eyes. She doesnโ€™t seem overwhelmed but embodies mana wฤhine (the divine feminine).

VICTORIAN DRESS:

Her Victorian dress is stifling with its tight, buttoned corset. It is impractical with its extra folds of heavy material and yet the form is undeniably beautiful. It creates a gorgeous shape. Equally, beautiful is the ornate, golden floral wallpaper design.

MOKO KAUAE (CHIN TATTOO):

She strikingly wears moko kauae, traditional Mฤori tattoo carved into her lips and chin, signifying mana and status. The colour of the ink mirrors her pounamu (greenstone) earrings. Tฤ moko is an indelible, outward sign of an inner, spiritual link to oneโ€™s roots. This is particularly acute for those who wear moko in the 21st century.

THE HEROโ€™S JOURNEY:

On the Heroโ€™s path, Joseph Campbell has this to say:

โ€œWhere we had thought to slay another
we shall slay ourselves.
Where we had thought to travel outwards
we shall come to the centre of our own existence.
And where we had thought to be alone
we shall be with all the world.โ€

SYMBOLISM IN THE SWORD:

Her ornately detailed sword is an outward expression of defiance. Yet its true value is its invocation of inner power. The symbols adorning the golden handle point to an inward alchemical journey of consciousness transformation, heightened intuition and wisdom.

Organic curved koru designs at the base of the sword’s handle symbolise rebirth, growth and feminine flowing energy. They lead into sharp triangular patterns on both sides of the handle, which resemble the Egyptian hieroglyph for water. Water and oceans are mysterious places of the deep and can be interpreted as realms of chaos and potentiality.

Partially in view below her fingers is the Star of David or the Merkabah made of two intersecting triangles. This is the sacred geometric symbol for Metatronโ€™s Cube, which, beyond two dimensions is a complex oscillating energy field that can surround and transport beings through dimensions.

Winding upward are the dual Caduceus serpents indicating wisdom, wellness and mastery through the unification of opposites.

They pass by a Christian cross, which is the perfect balance of divine vertical orientation and the horizontal manifested realms. The dual serpents rise up, like Kundalini energy rising up the spine.

In Tantric practices the goal is for this energy to reach the pineal gland situated at the third eye, and activate ultimate creative power and connection with The All, symbolised here as the Flower of Life pattern.

The idea is to face chaos in our own lives voluntarily and through the integration of light and dark within ourselves, transform our awareness to higher levels of creativity and connection.

THE GNOSTIC MYTH OF SOPHIA:

The goddess Sophia is wisdom. She is the divine feminine and God manifest. God is Source and the Goddess is the emanation or the play of God. In other words, the Goddess is the world. Sophia’s story is a parable for the plight of the lost human soul seeking Gnosis, or God-consciousness. Sophia is the soul. Christ is that which enlightens the soul.

In the beginning was pure unmanifest consciousness and it was aware. Gnostics called it All That Is. With neither gender nor form, All That Is emanated pairs of Aeons to play various roles in creation.

Sophia was the original female principal. She found herself separated from Source and grew fearful. She felt exiled, lost in this lesser place. Wandering through the world of matter created by her own fear and confusion, Sophia suffered. She was a “fallen woman” for years beyond counting, longing to return to All That Is.

Eventually, All That Is took pity on her and sent out her other half, so that she might once again see the light. As her paired Aeon and saviour, Christ rescued her from the physical world. He gathered her up into Gnosis (knowledge of the divine) so that she remembered herself.

Sophia’s story is our own mortal tale.

We seem doomed to wander alone through the world of matter. We don’t know where we’re going, why we’re here or who we are. Weโ€™re afraid and push ourselves further into matter to escape the aching feeling that we have lost our home.

The Goddess Sophia not only created matter, she lived in it to show us we are not alone in our suffering. Christ, her partner and equal, is Gnosis, who comes if we call.

“WHEN WE TWIST BEAUTY!”

“WHEN WE TWIST BEAUTY!” a poem Saturday: Feb. 16, 2019

When WE twist-things-around! – – –

To-make “the beautiful”-less-profound – – –

Or-say-they’re-evil-or vile!- – –

Then-we’ve-traveled-that-“extra-mile!” – – –

From sweetest, child-like nature, – – –

To an-“adult” nomenclature, – – –

Which is sad, but so true, – – –

That-The-World – wants YOU – – –

To stop feeling – and-start-believing, – – –

In-what-IT-approves, so-[you-can] START GRIEVING! – – –

About: Death! and Loss! and-about lack of time! – – –

So we-can-stop dreaming! and writing – silly rhyme! – – –

The World is a trickster, BUT! It’s also part of us! – – –

However, it’s “superstitious”-and-CAN-be-put-ON THE BUS! – – –

To-be-sent-off-to-“camp,” in-Cincinnati! [Ohio!] – or Timbuktu! – – –

So you can LAY LONG -WITH BEAUTY! and-stroke “her woo-hoo!”

Leave me alone – in my tears! OK?! [you filthy, disappointing hound dog!]

“THE GIRL!” a poem February 17, 2019 (SON-day)

The FIRST GIRL – you really, really get to disappoint, You Scumbag! is your mummy!
“HOW? (the longest pause here that you’ve EVER taken in your life)
Could YOU do THAT to ME – ’cause you came from MY tummy!
I ‘birthed’ you, I – BIRTHED – YOU – You? You! for God’s sake,
And-NOW! You- – or-ny bas – tard – YOU! doth forSAKE,
ME! Your MUM – by wearing a mum,
To The Prom!!!!! AND! going – going with some,
TERRIBLE! (Dare I say it?) DATE!
Are you telling me! (pause) I’m no-longer (pause) GREAT?
I ! who let you chew on MY nipples? For-God-knows-how-many-months,
And NOW! THIS! What? So, now – I’m just – one of the – – – – s ?”

AND, NOW!! You filthy, miserable [ ], you do EVEN MORE?
You LEAVE – your saintly mother – BEHIND THE WORN, FRONT DOOR,
Of-a-dark-lonely-house – stranded WITH THAT-GUY?!
That HUSBAND (that – – – – -!) and – EVERYDAY – she asks: “Why?”
She married HIM!? Well!? It was to have YOU!

YOU! You miserable dog [You should just die!] So, you-are-“drawn-to:”
ANOTHER! a beautiful girl – a sweet, dainty thing,
Who lovingly – PROMISES YOU THE WORLD, & [Yeah!] demands a diamond ring;
After-which – once (s)he’s got The Precious Jewel,
Forever-after-that – YOU ARE SIMPLY: “A FOOL,”
Who has disappointed – her EVERY HOPE,
And, now, in despair – THIS POOR LASSY – WILL JUST MOPE!!!
Mope! with your mother – and OTHER GIRLS TOO,
Like THAT ONE – you NEVER EVEN KNEW!!!
WHO LIKED YOU IN SCHOOL! It was: Smelly, Plain Sue,

And NOW! SUE, your wives (ex-wives) & YOUR MOTHER – talk o’ YOU! [They do!]
While they drink – up your wine – and whine! and play pinochle too,
And pray – for-death and/or disaster – in ANY way – TO FALL,
Upon THE HEAD – of the worst person EVER born – THE WORST ONE OF ALL:
YOU! Who have SO disappointed ALL the NICE girls OUT THERE,
And made them – CRY! and BITE THEIR LIPS! and PULL OUT THEIR HAIR,
Until they-are ALL bald – (pause here for tears) & have lost the best years of their lives!
Because of YOU! YOU! who-were-NOT-kind & decent, to make them proud wives!

YOU! Who, when you die and go to Heaven(?), WILL LADLE SOUP,
To all the lovely, young girls there! Who now – will just poop,
SOUP! ALL OVER THE PLACE – and YOU will clean it up,
YOU! ungrateful – unsavory – disgusting – DIRTYDOG Pup!

Footnote: [or -Paw Print, as the case may be!]

And, you-know, many years from now, when you’re a tired, defeated “also-ran,”
And you’re emptying “the offal” – from your mummy’s bedside pan,
She’ll LOOK UP! (with love and affection in her eyes!)
Even though – she sees – through – your “dutiful disguise,”
And-she’ll say: “You know, son!? You’re NOT THAT BAD!?”

And – YOU’LL DIE RIGHT THERE, but she WON’T look sad;
She’ll say: “FAILED ME AGAIN? HAVE YOU? YOU T – RD?”

And your sprightly, quaint soul – will fly off, like a little J – bird,

& mom – will try and shoot you down, with her “spiritually-charged” mega-mama gun,
Crying: “I’ll KILL YOU, you fowl thing – YOU! YOU-less-than-a-son!
You! failure of a person – who disappointed ALL the DARLING GIRLS,
Including MYSELF! You destroyed! all [of] our curls –
You flitted – and lied – and didn’t talk (nearly) enough;
You hid from our to-do lists, and you didn’t “stroke our stuff,”
In the right way – or (even) in the right place – You’re-a-disgrace!”
And she’ll hit you – right-between “those-SHIFTY -birdie eyes,” and you’ll go to a place,
Where yeast-infections-and-vinegar-douche-ings – rule and flourish,
& YOU’LL SIT IN THE DARK – Hole of Calcutta, where no one can nourish! ๐Ÿ™‚ – OMG

And! YOU’LL TURN – TOWARD THE EYES – OF A FRIEND ALSO THERE!
It’ll-be-Jesus!
“You-too, Jesus?”
“Yea! For, like YOU,
I-also!
LACKED,
“A-pair!” ๐Ÿ™‚ – Crying! I’m just crying here!*

“THE GIRL, THE SEQUEL & THE RE-PAIR[ING]!” ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

“THE GIRL, THE SEQUEL & THE RE-PAIR[ING]!” a poem as a conclusion to the epic poem “THE GIRL!” presented here – before! February 17, 2019 [Sunday]

WHEN WE LAST LEFT OUR HERO, HE-WAS IN-A “PLEASURE DOME,”
WITH-JESUS-CHRIST-THE-LORD, IN T H E UNIVERSAL WOEMB!

“And what-do-we-do-NOW?” “I DON’T KNOW!” said The Lord;
“Well, IF you don’t, who does?” [and] I-gazed – Hea-ven – Ward,
And noticed [I NOTICED] that [WE] were quite confined,
Within “Sugar Walls,” surrounding us, which luxuriously shined!

It was THEN! that I noticed – I WAS SOLITARY THERE;
THE PERSON I THOUGHT TO BE THE LORD – WAS ME, but I didn’t care!
I just sat there wondering – about “THE JAM”* I was in!
[And] about all the girls – DISAPPOINTED! by-my sorrowful life-of-“sin!”
How ALL the moms – their moms – and-their-daughters all were so sad,
Because of MY short-coumings! [Good Lord, I’m bad!]

I wondered about this special place, which smelled of fish, deep-fried,
And muffins-baked-to-perfection – and-if here I would always abide?!
Confined HERE – in this Heaven – or in this sweet-smelling-Hell,
A “Purgatorium!” I-felt (I guess) quite unwell.
Hopeless! YET STILL! I-wondered what-I could have done,
For ALL THOSE GIRLS – to-have-been a-better-“hon!”
MAYBE T H A T WAS IT! IF – I could have been more-like-a-“HUN,”
Who-would-rape- and-pillage – and, perhaps, SATISFY-THEM – utilizing: PUN!

“Oh, well – WOE IS ME! I AM – such a disappointment!”
&-with-that THE PLACE DID SHAKE!!! &-from-the-walls-oozed-a-fragrant-ointment,
Which covered me – and I did grow – TO GRAND-E-PROPORTIONS, man;
I was “bursting at the seams!” REALLY EXCITED! and-spreading out – like a fan!
A PHALLIC STRUCTURE I BECAME, WITHIN THIS ‘ANNIC “PRISON!”
The Earth shook! Angels cried! It was – A-friggin’- CATACLYSM!
With-deep, deep-thrusts! I-soon-realized-this-was-IT! THE COSMIC-FUGUE,**
There was a lot of “traction!” A rooster crowed – a hen! I-heard-it TRULY-cluck!
Then, all the girls, in all the worlds, those unseen AND seen,
United! into one Kunta Kinte – and I-was: Mr. Clean!
I KNEW in a moment, as Mrs. Claus shouted: “Hurray!-I-have-made-IT-at-last!”
That ALL GIRLS WERE UNITED IN ONE, & all disappointments had passed!

For I WAS “The cock” of the “a-doodle-doo,”
AND ALL GIRLS ARE WON, WITH A BIG, BIG BANG 2!

And both [of us] that morning – equally lay – in “grass” no step had trodden black,
[For-it-had-been: A COS-MIC EN-COUNTER, within “The Cos-mic SACK!]

And THE ANIMA KNEW – AS-IT FLEW-OUT-OF-SIGHT,
SHE HAD FINE-ALL-EE-CUM – TO-AN INFINITE HEIGHT!
She-was ALL-THE-GIRLS! ALL-were-now SATIS-FIED,
And all was forgiven! WITH NO NEED TO HIDE,
FOR WHENEVER ANY GIRL – SUDDENLY – “NEEDED I T,”
I was ALREADY THERE! A-stroking each t – – t,
And massaging her p (rivates?) – and making her PURR,
For ALL GIRLS ARE “CAT WOMEN!” Yes, us “DOGS” will concur:
THAT DOING IT ” – – – – IE STYLE” IS A LITTLE BIT ROUGH,
BUT KITTIES DON’T CARE – WITH-A-[FULLY]-SATISFIED-“M – – – – F!”***

THE MORAL of The Story – and The END of Disappointment:
To satisfy all girls? Just-fugue-The-Universally-Truly- Wet-C –
Fugue-ing the-girls separately – simply don’t work;
For-by-doing-that none-are-satisfied; they-just call-you-A-JERK!****
SEPARATELY? Gripe – Gripe – Gripe!
But together? things-will-be: INFINITELY RIPE,
With all of them satisfied, all [of] them in bliss!
Don’t-take-’em-one-by-one – GIVE-‘EM-ALL – “THE-COSMIC-KISS!”
Mothers! Daughters! Aunts! and-Grams!
Do them ALL – with THE WHAM! of B A M ‘ s!

The Moral of the Story

“Wedding Song!”ย 

“WHAT THE . . . ” a poem a.k.a.: “Wedding Song!” Feb. 6, 2019 (Wednesday)

You wanna fall in love?! Well, THAT’S-JUST so INSANE!
EVEN IF it works out A LITTLE BIT, there’ll-be a lotta pain,
And people will cry; dogs will howl!
Jilted lovers – will-be on the prowl!
WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MIND?
Do you wanna end up in a real bind?

HOWEVER!
STOP THE PRESS! Even so,

Even-IF – it doesn’t work out VERY well,
Even-if you two-together- land -up-in-Hell,
Even-if The World turns against you – and you’ve got to flee into exile,
Well, YEAH! YOU’RE RIGHT!! (of course!) Love’s-worth-it, all the while,
Despite any torturous yearning – and the fear of loss,
Some jealousy that’s burning – and – IT’S-ALL A-BIG COIN TOSS,
But, by GOD! If-it works-out – or even – just a little,
It’s what makes “life” tolerable – IT sends us to “The Middle,”
To THE CALM, SERENE, DIVINE – UNION OF THE CROSS,
Where Jesus Christ WAS crucified, BUT – NEVER SUFFERED “LOSS!”
For, when fire and water – across-and up-and-down,
Intercept in PERFECTION, well – There’s NO adjective or noun,
To describe IT – Call it: Heaven! or, maybe, Sweet Nirvana!
The crossing of “the opposites?” – is The Bridegroom plus Madonna,
Which creates THE NOW, so, for-God’s-sake, GO-FOR-“THE-BROKEN-RULE,”
‘Cause, IF you don’t, you will have become, the biggest, gosh-darn “fool!”
For, when the chance of True-Love arises, it’s-NOT “some-chance-of-a-lifetime!”
IT’S-ETERNITY-AND-STELLAR-BLISS, “The Perfect, Ultimate Rhyme!” ๐Ÿ™‚ – Whoa!
