Goddess of Love

August 13, 2010 § 5 Comments

When i am sitting at the door of a tavern,

I, Ishtar, the goddess,

Am prostitute, mother, wife, divinity.

I am what people call life,

Although you call it death.

I am what people call Law,

Although you call it Deliquency.

I am what you seek

And what you find.

I am what you scattered

And the pieces you now gather up.

Ancient lyrics to Ishtar, the Mesopotamian Goddess of Love

Hymn To Isis

August 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

for i am the first and the last

i am the venerated and the despised

i am the prostitute and the saint

i am the wife and the virgin

i am the mother and the daughter

i am the arms of my mother

i am barren and my children are many

i am the married woman and the spinster

i am the woman who gives birth and she who never procreated

i am the consolation for the pain of birth

i am the wife and the husband

and it was my man who created me

i am the mother of my father

i am the sister of my husband

and he is my rejected son

always respect me

for i am the shameful and the magnificent one

hymn to isis, third or fourth century b.c.,

Seasons Of Life

August 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

I’ve heard this so many times, but it really moved me as I was reading Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho last week. It speaks out to me where I am in my life right now.

To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven;

A time to be born, and a time to die;

A time to plant, and a time to pluck that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal;

A time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;

A time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose;

A time to keep, and a time to cast away;

A time to rend, and a time to sew;

A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate;

A time of war, and a time of peace.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

"I'm going to create man and woman with original sin. Then I'm going to impregnate a woman with myself as her child, so that I can be born in human form. Once alive, I will kill myself as a sacrifice to myself. To save you from the sin I originally condemned you to. Ta dah!" God – master of logic since the beginning of time. … Read More

There Is A Cancer In Me. (via So It’s A Wednesday…)

I love this. It’s so beautiful. I’m lucky (?) enough not to suffer from depression, but for some reason, a number of people that I’m really close to do. And I’ve seen how it affects their lives, and the lives of those around them. And so, even if I don’t actually suffer from depression myself, I’m definitely coping with it.
Anyway, I liked this. Oh, and check out Cissy’s blog, will you? It’s definitely interesting to read 🙂

There is a Cancer in me. There is a mutation festering in the core of my being, putrefying my organs at an agonizingly slow pace, corrupting me.  It has warped my vision so that I no longer see the world as I should.  Everything has transformed into undefinable blurs of evil and anarchy before my eyes.  It has twisted and molded my young body into something old and used.  It feeds off me leaving me weak, drained, open to any and all kinds of infe … Read More

Decisions, Decisions

August 11, 2010 § 2 Comments

So I need your help. Think carefully before answering; imagine you actually have to answer WHY, and not just what. For example (and yes, it’s just an example so feel free to choose that answer), if you pick ‘life’, don’t just choose it because without it you can have none of the rest. Think about QUALITY of life and everything else that’s important, then pick your answer.

Promise I have a good reason for this poll, and I’ll explain it all soon as the poll closes on Monday the 16th of August 2010, at 2359 hours… *suspense*

Please answer? 🙂 Thanks

Where Am I?
