At the Crossroads

 

…I see myself at crossroads in my life, mapless, lacking bits of knowledge – then, the Moon breaks through, lights up the path before me…”
― John Geddes

 

There is that in me that loves a crossroads. I salute Hecate, Papa Legba and Thoth and I enjoy the moment of possibilities when all roads that can be seen are equally possible. True, there is a decision called for each time we arrive yet there is always that moment to savour when all seem equally possible or impossible and all cry out “Choose me”. Yet when I look for quotes to share about the crossroads’ wonders, it seems that many see them as negative as if a decision was a frightening thing to make and choosing to not decide might make cowards of us all.
I will hang out at the crossroads at Twilight or Midnight and invoke my gods and goddesses. I will choose so that I may find the crossroads again and be open to new possibilities.
Blessings, G

Me and My Shadow

 

“the abyss you stare into and that stares back at you is your reflection in the mirror – we all have it – that shadow self – that dark heart…”
― John Geddes

 

Do I accept my shadow or do I fear it? Do I turn away from the dark thoughts, the anger, the weirdness or do I watch it flow through. I know what happens when I try to repress these feelings, deny them in myself. There is only so long you can hold the lid down on something before it expresses itself in undesired ways, better to express or at least acknowledge the existence of anger or sorrow or lust or any of the things that make me uneasy. It’s amazing how fast they dissipate once I admit they are there.
How do you handle your shadow self?
Blessings, G
