My Prince—

Pain is nothing but your embrace in disguise, is it not? It cuts me off from other human beings, isolates me, possesses me jealously, violently. Like a mad lover, like one who must consume me, fill me with but himself and no one, nothing else.

To the hilt you would stab me, Pain, and keep twisting?

To the brim you would fill me, Pain, and keep pouring?

Well, then, my Lord. Here is my chest, torn open wide, my heart laid bare. Do with it what you may. For what have I to lose when you are the one who has given me everything, and could as easily snatch it away at any moment?

Prema says—
Keep twisting, Beloved.
Keep pouring.

” — Prema Kalidasi (via premakalidasi)

astrologyreadings:

The relationship between Shakti and Shiva is the dance of consciousness and energy experienced within each of us, regardless of gender.
Your inner Shakti is your life force energy. From this essence comes forth wisdom, beauty, playful energy, spaciousness, ability, creativity, and power. Shatki is the Great Mother and matrix of creation and all manifestation. She is the power that weaves the universe and manifests in all forms. The perfection of wisdom. The tangible manifestation of energy through the body and the senses.
Your inner Shiva is your unique embodiment of awareness and consciousness. Known as “lord of the dance,” Shiva is the essence of masculine and yang energy, the manifestation of presence, purpose, and skillful means. Shiva is the Great Father, with ultimate compassion for all beings. He represents transcendence, detachment, bliss, and the way to ultimate liberation. Shiva is silent, eternal, the consciousness that dwells beyond time and beyond death, in the eternal now. Your inner Shiva is that ever-present neutral awareness that compassionately witnesses all experience, and embraces all of life as expressions of the Divine.
Together in union, Shiva and Shakti merge and create the universe in all its manifestations.
