"In the Inanna cycle, she is maiden, mother and crone. Her encounter with Ereshkigal can be seen as a meeting of the creator and the destroyer - the light and dark aspects of the Goddess. For modern women, Inanna is a powerful role model. She indeed has it all: she is Goddess, protectress, sensuous, a politician par excellence, intelligent, beautiful, powerful. She is aware of Her position in the world, of Her great responsibility.

We, like Inanna, challenge ourselves, often taking ourselves to task to know more, learn more, be more. This is not necessarily good or bad. But in the doing, in living this life, we too must know the power of the underworld and its mysteries, as well as know the power of compassion. Our personal growth, suffering and pain can be likened to physical death; our psyches journey to the underworld again and again. Old ideas, old visions, identities die; myths are shattered, and are created anew. We rise up, like Inanna, aware of our vulnerabilities, and the strength created from them." #ancestors #inanna #contemplative #higherself #underworld #giftedness #naming #humanity #archetype #vulnerability #purpose #compassion #vision #identity #energy #goddess #riseup #archetypal #jungian #blackjungian #innerstrength #writersofinstagram #poetsofinstagram #artistsofinstagram

PRE-ORDER TODAY!!! // i am from a punch & a kiss is part of a multimedia poetry project which will be released throughout 2017. This book, the first installment of the project, is a collection of original poetry and writing from Sapient Soul, offering a challenging and meditative look into the process of her own identity and the cost we all bear when we ignore the legacy of white supremacy in the United States. She calls for the conscious action of engaging discomfort and tension towards wholeness and full life across all that is
broken.

#CharlesMingus // "So he must use what time he has creating now for the future and utilize the past only to help the future, not as a razor strop for guilts and fears that inhibit his very being. Or like it said at the end of a labor song I liked a lot when I was a kid: what I mean is, take it easy, but take it." #creative #blkcreatives #creatives #artistsofinstagram #musiciansofinstagram #jazz #bebop #avantgarde #sinplicity #creativity #execution #imperfectbeing #building #ancientfutures #ancestors

"It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive." -James Baldwin

"It was so interesting, when [John Coltrane] created A Love Supreme. He had meditated that week. I almost didn't see him downstairs. And it was so quiet! There was no sound, no practice! He was up there meditating, and when he came down he said, "I have a whole new music!" He said, "There is a new recording that I will do, I have it all, everything." And it was so beautiful! He was like Moses coming down from the mountain. And when he recorded it, he knew everything, everything. He said this was the first time that he had all the music in his head at once to record." #process #meditation #spirituality #healing #music #musiciansofinstagram #johncoltrane #alicecoltrane #love

"When we view living, in the european mode, only as a problem to be solved, we then rely solely upon our ideas to make us free, for these were what the white fathers told us were precious.

But as we become more in touch with our own ancient, black, non-european view of living as a situation to be experienced and interacted with, we learn more and more to cherish our feelings, and to respect those hidden sources of our power from where true knowledge and therefore lasting action comes." #AudreLorde, "Poetry Is Not A Luxury"

People will see you and see what they want to see. You will either be what they would like for you to be or be who your truly are.

It begins with both
