What makes a god or goddess divine? If you believe the old myths and legends, the gods were not above pain, not above sorrow. They could be hurt, they could even be destroyed. So what made them divine? Simply this: Knowledge of their own divinity, and the ability to transform themselves and others. Nothing is beyond the reach of a goddess, when she moves from love.
A goddess is present. Aware. Open. Sensitive to the heartbeat, the exquisite touch and texture and taste of the moment. She accepts it all, welcomes it all, knows that she cannot lose herself in any of it. She delights in the flow, the movement, the dance. She is willing to change, to grow, to expand in life, in awareness, in love. She cannot be found for she was never lost. She simply is, and therefore is all. She is in everything and everyone. To find her within is to find her without, and to know that the two are bound, connected, the same, and eternally now.
We all live as gods and goddesses when we claim our transformative powers. A mother, turning a child’s tears to smiles with a kiss and a warm cookie. A boss, turning co-workers into a team. A hostess, turning an ordinary room into a celebration. An artist, freeing an image from clay. A woman, creating a sanctuary out of a house. Any one of us, smiling at a stranger, spreading light.
Know you are divine. Know the universe as your Beloved. Know that you can transform yourself and others. Move from love, and watch the miracles unfold.
