Our Collecting and Weaving Task: A Tapestry of Love

Listen to the podcast.

These are powerful times that call for powerful presence. The world as we know it appears to be coming apart at the seams, in both immensely positive and terrifyingly negative ways. And we must find our place and power, our love and goodness, in the midst of this river of change that carries us forward to a brighter or desolate future.  The Goddess speaks to this transformative moment, calling us to collect and weave the silver threads of Her love and life-centered ways into a tapestry of love that offers a new vision for our lives and shared human society.

Weave a new vision, a tapestry of love, and then live your weaving with all your heart and will; help turn the tides into a brighter future in these perilous, exhilarating times.

I feel the import of this moment, like all of Creation is holding its breath, waiting to see what we humans will choose at this colossal tipping point. I’ve visited this tipping point many, many times with the Goddess and always She returns to the same message: you already have what you need to heal your soul and this world; it’s inside of you, my greatest gift to you, and your most sacred birthright — love.

By this the Goddess doesn’t mean our human, emotional kind of love, but the love that infuses all living things in the unfolding Cosmos, that drives life to create and nurture new life, and to honor and embrace the brilliant manner in which every life form, and every one of us, holds a unique, essential piece of the shining, living, breathing whole.

I feel the Goddess in my fingertips as I write this post. I feel Her in my heart and in my solar plexus.

“Wake up,” She says, “what I speak of is all around you and within you. I walk with you in the beautiful things of this Earth, the best qualities of your humanity, and the Mysteries and powers that underlie everything you see and experience. These are the silver threads of my love and life-centered ways.

“Find these threads in your own life. Gather them to you as the precious gifts that they are. Weave them into a new vision, a tapestry of love that centers your everyday existence, and your choices and actions in the goodness and beauty that you are, and the goodness and beauty of your Earth home. And then live your tapestry of love, with all your heart and all your will, knowing that this, and only this, will bring the depth of change that’s needed to turn the tides into a brighter future in these perilous, exhilarating times.”

This is our spiritual pathwork, now and for the rest of our lives. Be assured, the heat is being turned up in this battle over what will rule our soul and our human society: the worst of our nature, with its fear, greed and compulsion for dominion, or the best of our nature, with its goodness, generosity and drive to create. Our primary task, no matter what challenges, fear and resistance cross our path, is to keep collecting and weaving these silver threads into our tapestry of love, to make this weaving strong, resilient and shiny beautiful, and to join with others to create greater tapestries in support of the things we commonly hold dear.

Remember that to face our fears, heal our pain and embrace our challenges are essential parts of our collecting and weaving task. Whatever tapestry we create, individually and together, will contain the shiny, silver threads of our intact goodness and beauty, and the tarnished, frayed strands of our wounded places. All these things are part of our truth and wholeness, and essential to the strength and integrity of our tapestry of love.

As we collect and weave, collect and weave, trust that She, the Great Goddess, Dark Mother, or whatever language you use to name this greater power of life and love, collects and weaves by our side. Together let us sing out to the listening Cosmos and our fellow humanity: we are awake and we are choosing love, and then dive into that river of change and swim with all your might toward the brighter future that awaits us.
