Self-analysis is destructive, it generates only introspection, the labyrinth, division. It is always false, based on false premises. It is paralyzing. Analysis should only be endured at the hands of another as a healing process. There is no self-analysis—there is neurosis. It is anti-creative. It is a form of pause, not motion. — Anaïs Nin
Mae West´s “I am no Angel” in Helsinki,1930´s.
You know, we’re all typecast in life. And if you don’t know exactly how life has typecast you, people soon let you know. But you have to remember, if it isn’t exactly what you would have chosen for yourself, you can make some alterations and get a better fit. — Mae West
Michelangelo 1499 - Mater dolorosa en latin ou Pietà, détail
The archetype of the witch is long overdue for celebration. Daughters, mothers, queens, virgins, wives, et al. derive meaning from their relation to another person. Witches, on the other hand, have power on their own terms. They have agency. They create. They praise. They commune with nature/ Spirit/God/dess/Choose-your-own-semantics, freely, and free of any mediator. But most importantly: they make things happen. The best definition of magic I’ve been able to come up with is “symbolic action with intent" — “action" being the operative word. Witches are midwives to metamorphosis. They are magical women, and they, quite literally, change the world. — The Year of the Witch | Pamela J. Grossman (via loveage-moondream)
