Further thoughts on Kali

October 26, 2008 § Leave a comment

Later yesterday, I read the entry for Kali in the Reader’s Handbook. Under the heading of “Teacher”, Rachel Pollack writes this:

Kali teaches us about fundamental energy. She reveals to us our own power, as well as our fears. Her aspects may terrify us but what we really fear is ourselves, and what we might do if we did not repress our strength. Kali teaches us to let go of all the trivial matters by which we define ourselves and close ourselves off from life. She teaches us to trust our own power.

This made me think of the primal, wild, uninhibited, life-affirming act of childbirth and, in a lesser way, of sex.
