I am dusting off the blog again after a short hiatus during the holidays, including the new year. I am meditating more, and honoring what allows me to be happily more. More happy, more peaceful , more connected to a presence that means everything to me.
I discovered what some may consider to be the presence of the universe early on in my life in Christianity. From there the vastness of this presence, this truth, opened up in my understanding of Hinduism, which I found out later was an experience of the Buddhist understanding of emptiness.
I have recently, in the last few years, found an ancient tradition that spans millenia that incorporates the body into its approach, into spiritually living, and it is living, not removed from the daily but just about being, and not shunning anything.
Without getting into details, this tradition in many versions embraces Kali in one form or another. Blessedly, I rediscovered and remembered how Kali informs the understanding of Hinduism that has spoken to me for over half my life now. Connecting back to her through my path now and acknowledging her means so much to me, and allows my body to be more at peace as I honor a spiritual path.
I felt moved to introduce Kali, and for the first time I am personally moved to more openly connect with and honor Kali and what she brings in my life.
For those curious or interested to find out more, I recommend the book Kali, The Black Goddess of Dakshineswar found on the store portion of this site: www.kalimandir.org
Mark Newlon, feeling the embrace of the sacred feminine daily!
