Spiritual Direction is non-linear. It doesn’t follow a prescribed order. It follows Spirit.
And, so is this blog. It’s non-linear; I write in circles and in creative swirls that may or may not be connected to each other.
Goddess energy is about being receptive and releasing rather than gripping. Creative energy doesn’t start in an organized fashion. It begins in a mess of blind, unrecognizable essence. It begins in intuition, in the dark subterranean layers of the mind-body.
Learning to trust in a non-linear way of living, it turns out, is the path in the woods that I have been on. But of course I did not know it. It was a slow dawning. It was supposed to be that for me.
My path does not follow a smooth line, it bends around, making big and small sweeping arcs here and there, it jumps sometimes over boulders, it hops and crosses other paths playing tricks on them and making them think that they are right and it was wrong. My path is swirly, twirly fearless fun. And my path is as deep and as old as the earth herself.
Now, I recognize the way. Now, I see the drive that has been pushing me; the pulsing, dancing, rhythmic beat that has been guiding me all along. It is not a destination that I can point to, but a way of being in the world that beckons others to come this way. It’s a haunting glow that radiates outward and makes others stop in their tracks and look up from what they are doing to see what just moved past them. It is a hum that vibrates from a place in me that I cannot ever quite locate.
And as it dawns on me just what path I am on, I release more than I grip; I begin to step with intention. And I follow the circles and skips and joints, and I feel more free and more me and it scares us all. We are startled awake by the darkness it stirs in our waking life; the darkness where that messy, blind, unrecognizable essence thrives.
