Love is like having to walk the plank blindfolded, without wings
It's like trying to escape quick sand while sinking deeper and deeper
Or simply trying to stand, but you keep falling down
Love is like drowning, losing air, like breathing underwater...
Baby don't hurt me? Love must be Pain... blood-curdling, unbearable, gut-wrenching, paralyzing stupefying pain...
Better yet, how about this?
love is just a bogus fairy tale constructed to keep women docile...
yeah I said it...which brings me to...
The Story of Lilith
For those who have never heard the name before you may be wondering... Who is this Lilith?
In my own words....
Lilith (as a myth) was apparently Adam's first wife, yeh, Eve was a matey lol, but Lilith did done sight the rake...and she decide seh she nah guh jus drop pickney like puppy no siree Adam. So she cut...yup...just like that... and is not until Adam finally realise seh shi not coming back that them bruk out piece a him ribs an turn it into Eve. But that's not where the drama begins, no sah.
They couldn't allow for there to be any recollection of a defiant woman in the Bible because that would contradict the patriarchy they were constructing and so...
Women like Ruth only got a few pages in the Bible because I guess women didn't have the capacity to read and write right? bull shit! And poor Delilah was portrayed as a ruthless bitch, when she was just trying to protect her own, with the mere exception of Deborah the great judge and prophetess who didn't even get a book of her own
Ooh and then the whole foolishness about women having to keep pure for their husbands....like pieces of meat to be bought, slaughtered and devoured.
How was this allowed you may ask? because Lilith was erased as a symbol of strength and forced to dwell in myths of darkness and evil.
When it came to sexuality, "Lilith typifies the Anath-worshipping Canaanite women, who were permitted pre-nuptial promiscuity" -http://gnosis.org/lilith.htm (3)
Can you imagine that? Pre-nuptial promiscuity without condemnation. Can you spell Heaven? lol
So after them banish poor Lilith [who was simply exercising her human rights] to the recesses of hell they converted her to an evil mythological figure. But in truth the Hebrew derivative of Lilith can be translated as dark. Look at that eeh... Lilith, the deep evil creature that sucked men's blood and stole yound children in their sleep, was nothing more than a BLACK WOMAN!!! a DARK skinned woman! (This is my interpretation btw see pic for better understanding <<<) What a breakthrough, it's the whole problem of the double minority all over again. Strike one for being a woman, strike two for being black, strike three for being both! Poor poor Lilith!!! The Genisis of Racism! I think it's about time that we as women reclaimed our thrones as protectors of the Earth. Does anyone remeber Gaia? (That's another blog for another day though I'm still in the process of seeking out the info) just take a good look @ the photo though..Gaia was a black woman, and she was Mother Earth!
So in my quest to gain a better understanding of the historical relevance of my current situation, I found Lilith and Gaia and I've dusted them off and I take them on my journey as a symbol of my strength as I endeavor to discover the truth. I will continue to conduct my own research until I am satisfied and content with the world.
I fight the patriarchy because it has had a monopoly over the choices and progression of women for way too long. Viva Lilith & Gaia!!!
As my Mother always said...A little knowledge is a dangerous thing....lol...dwl..
God Bless Google
Nota Bene: I really do love men..there is absolutely no doubt about it...
I love their strength, and their abilities, their sweet caresses...not to mention that tool in between their legs! Who could not love that? lol...
I'm just saying though..A ooman time now! and i need a man that can understand and respect that... So far, i've found none....
What is Evolution?
“We began as a mineral. We emerged into plant life, and into the animal state, and then into being human, and always we have forgotten our former states, except in early spring when we slightly recall being green again. That’s how a young person turns toward a teacher. That’s how a baby leans toward the breast, without knowing the secret of its desire, yet turning instinctively. Humankind is being led along an evolving course, through the migration of intelligences, and though we seem to be sleeping, there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream, and that will eventually startle us back to the truth of who we are.”
— The Story of Evolution - Rumi, 13th Century
Our Deepest Fear by Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
