me child, and know Me for who I am. I
have been with you since you were born, and I will stay with you until
you return to Me at the final dusk.
am the passionate and seductive lover who inspires the poet to dream.
am the One who calls to you at the end of your journey. After the day
is done, My children find their blessed rest in my embrace.
am the womb from which all things are born.
am the shadowy, still tomb; all things must come to Me and bare their
breasts to die and be reborn to the Whole.
am the Sorceress that will not be ruled, the Weaver of Time, the Teacher
of Mysteries. I snip the threads that bring my children home to me.
I slit the throats of the cruel and drink the blood of the heartless.
Swallow your fear and come to me, and you will discover true beauty,
strength, and courage.
I am the fury which rips the flesh from injustice.
I am the glowing forge that transforms your inner demons into tools
of power. Open yourself to my embrace and overcome.
am the glinting sword that protects you from harm.
am the crucible in which all the aspects of yourself merge together
in a rainbow of union.
am the velvet depths of the night sky, the swirling mists of midnight,
shrouded in mystery.
am the chrysalis in which you will face that which terrifies you and
from which you will blossom forth, vibrant and renewed. Seek me at the
crossroads, and you shall be transformed, for once you look upon my
face, there is no return.
am the fire that kisses the shackles away.
am the cauldron in which all opposites grow to know each other in Truth.
I am the web which connects all things.
am the Healer of all wounds, the Warrior who rights all wrongs in their
Time. I make the weak strong. I make the arrogant humble. I raise up
the oppressed and empower the disenfranchised. I am Justice tempered
importantly, child, I am you. I am part of you, and I am within you.
Seek me within and without, and you will be strong. Know me. Venture
into the dark so that you may awaken to Balance, Illumination, and Wholeness.
Take my Love with you everywhere and find the Power within to be who
Why is Mother Kali so radiantly black?
Because she is so powerful,
that even mentioning her name destroys delusion.
Because she is so beautiful,
Lord Shiva, Conquerer of death, lies blissfully vanquished,
beneath the red soled feet.
There are subtle hues of blackness,
But her bright complexion
is the mystery that is utterly black,
overwhelmingly black, wonderfully black.
When she awakens in the lotus shrine within the heart's secret cave,
her blackness becomes the mystic illumination
that causes the twelve petal blossom there to glow
more intensely than golden embers.
Her lovely form is the incomparable Kali- black
blacker than the King of Death.
Whoever gazes upon this radiant blackness falls eternally in love
and feels no attraction to any other, discovering everywhere only her.
This poet sighs deeply, "Where is this
brilliant lady, this black light beyond luminosity?
Though I have never seen her, simply hearing her name, the mind becomes
absorbed completely in her astonishing reality.
Om Kali! Om Kali! Om Kali!
