Preparing to Greet the Goddess 


Do not think of her
unless you are prepared

to be driven to your limits,
to rush forth from yourself
like a ritual bowl overflowing
with sacramental wine.

Do not summon her image
unless you are ready to be blinded,
to stand in the flash

of a center exploding,
yourself shattering into the landscape,
wavering bits of bark and water.

Do not speak her name
until you have said good-bye
to all your familiar trinkets—
your mirrors, your bracelets,
your childhood adorations.

From now on you are nothing,
a ghost sighing at the window,
a voice singing underwater.

Dorothy Walters

Note: I wrote this poem two months before I experienced dramatic Kundalini awakening.  Obviously, it was a foreshadowing of what was to come.  Kundalini is, for me, the goddess of goddesses, and the raw energy behind all depictions of the goddesses of various traditions.
