GOD OF RETURNING
Going back is like a spiraling over
of safe sex
he speaks for himself

THE GODDESS OF COMPASSION
Commentary by LOREN POLANS
|The Goddess Of Compassion hangs on our
living room wall, near a window to catch the light of day.
She doesn't need it though; she glows with her own inner warmth. One day, some time ago, in a galaxy
much like our own, my dear friend Janet Morgan hosted a unique gathering.
It was a "Come as your favorite God or Goddess" Party. It was further announced that anyone
dressing up as one of the deities would be able to pick a painting and take it home.
Janet had already generously given away several paintings to friends; I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
(Truth be told, I would have dressed up as one anyway; I can't resist an opportunity to add strangeness
to the world).
I came as the God Of Death On The Queen
Charlottes (see picture in that section;
in fact, see ALL
back to the Goddess of Compassion (remember her?)..Many things appealed
The unique subject
matter of Janet's paintings brings the pantheon of deities into the contemporary
Serenity (the universe) I
She carries the dead into the next world.
THE GODDESS OF DISGUSTING JOBS
Almost all employ is an exercise in sadism and masochism,
so to be aware of powers over and under ourselves makes the game easier.
Service is a sacred masochism and even sexual prostitution can be in the sacred realm.
But then again, some jobs are truly disgusting and some are made disgusting by the lack of respect paid by the bosses. As in all S & M, it is how we frame the submission or control that is important, and the framing must be consentual all around. Almost any act can be full of love and support, or full of cruelty and degradation. Be aware of your limits and your desires, she says, and wisdom will prevail.
