ARE YOU WILLING TO Risk Being Happy?
"The desire for happiness ... is discouraged by the three dominant religions in the West [Might we be talking here about Christianity, Judaism, and Islam?!?].
"Risking happiness is as difficult and dangerous as risking any other form of authentic self.
"Goddess women have spent a lot of time ... focusing on injustice.... I am calling [them] to step forward from ... anger into reverence and happiness.
"[T]here comes a point where violent revolution (physical or spiritual) ends up hurting the weakest ... while those with power buy their way out of discomfort."
[Excerpts from a thought-provoking article by Rev. Nano Boye Nagle in the new issue of Matrifocus]
Just a reminder, Gentle Reader: the Goddess revolution called for in this blog is a bloodless, nonviolent revolt. Could we use HAPPINESS as a major weapon in our war? It's certainly one The Father knows nothing about. He'd be a babe in the woods when it comes to defending Himself.
