Review: “Goddess rising” by Lyn Thurman

5 Apr

(Disclaimer: I was given a digital review copy. I still wouldn’t say anything if I did not live the book.)

This is the perfect companion for your goddess journey, and I can barely wait to get my own paper copy. Lovingly written, “Goddess rising” takes you on a journey to discover 52 different goddesses/archetypes, learn more about their stories and find out how to integrate them into your life. Lyn Thurman is an expert in all things goddess and spiritual and will carefully help you experience the feminine divine on your own, maybe even finding yourself along the way. There are journal prompts, affirmations and goddess magic activities for each of them, and it is completely up to you how much (or how little, if you are busy like so many) time you can dedicate to this discovery. Read the book from front to back – or the other way around – look for a certain goddess you wish to meet or open a random page and start where fate dropped you off. Either way, I promise you will not be disappointed. Get your copy at Amazon.com, -.co.uk or just ask your local bookstore for a copy the oldfashioned way. I am not judging! ^^

I am the Mother of the Ocean
All life comes from me
At the end, all life returns
I bring peace
I bring destruction
Hear me sing

Yesterday a friend told me something she had kept secret from me, for fear of judgement. Indeed, I guess I am a judgemental person – the high (moral) horse I sit on is one to rival any giraffe. But I know that other people have to follow their own standards, and I try hard not to judge them for doing as they think is best. I will not hold back my opinion on topics, but I usually try to make clear at the same time that this is just an opinion and not The One And Only Truth. (Unless we are talking about peanut butter. Everything is better with peanut butter. Period.)

Anyway, this took me by surprise.

“But I want you to think well of me, and just now you had that look…”

Yeah, probably, but that was not because of what she had told me (nothing big, really), but because of the fact that she had lied to me. I do not take kindly to that. Anyway, lots of talk followed, accompanied by ice cream, and I think we are good again.

Still, in the evening I lit a candle to meditate and pray. This event had got me thinking. I don’t want to be THAT person. And I don’t want others to think that I am judging them all the time. (Because clearly I never make mistakes, have never done anything stupid and would never even for a fraction of a blink consider straying from my own steep moral paths. Ahem.) We are human, we make mistakes, and the biggest mistake would be not to learn from our mistakes. Apart from that, everything is fine by me, I guess.

As for my passing judgement, I received a reply from the Goddess which I thought I’d share, just because it is beautiful and true…

“Everything in nature is sacred, and I love everything the same. My creation keeps devoring itself – birds eat worms, spiders eat their males. Some wasps lay their eggs inside other insects who are then devored alive. many birds and primates cheat on their partners, and male lions kill the children of their predecessors. I don’t judge, I don’t take sides, I just love. For when it comes to life, there is no right or wrong – you do what you have to do to survive, and most of all, if you are lucky, you love and you enjoy yourself.”
