Wild Women

“We cannot stay in the Ecstasy of perfect union forever. For most of us, it is not our path to do so. Our work is rather to be weaned at some point from these most exciting forces, yet to remain and conscious connection to them and to proceed to the next task. It is a fact that we can become fixated on a particularly lovely aspect of psychic Union and attempt to stay there forever, sucking at the sacred tit. This does not mean nurture is destructive. Quite the contrary, nurture is absolutely essential to the journey, and insubstantial amount. In fact, it is not present and adequate amounts, the Seeker will lose energy, fall into depression, and Fade to a whisper. But if we stay at a favorite place in the psyche such as only in Beauty, only in Rapture, individuation slows to a slug. The Naked Truth is that those sacred forces we find within our own psyches someday must be left, at least temporarily, so that the next stage of the process can occur.”
