PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, October 20th, 2010 by Clare Cooper Marcus in IONA DREAMING

“For the individual ego, as for society, change is threatening; we like to believe we have everything neatly under control. In India, the Goddess life force appears in two contrasting forms: Kali and Durga. Kali is the frightening Goddess wit skulls around her neck and a bloody sword in her hand. Kali’s function is to crush the ego, the force us to let go of whatever we cling to. And when we do let go, Kali is transformed into Durga, the Great Mother, the radiant Goddess. Only then do we experience the serenity that accompanies the acknowledgment of impermanence, the calm that comes with letting go.”

Clare Cooper Marcus, in “Iona Dreaming The Healing Power of a Place”
