A Quote by Starhawk on home, free, community, and circle

We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been - a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch glimpses of from time to time. Community.

Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power. Community means strength that joins our strength to do the work that needs to be done. Arms to hold us when we falter. A circle of healing. A circle of friends. Someplace where we can be free.

A Quote by Starhawk on mystery, travel, perception, spirituality, and women

The terrain of the mysteries is the ordinary.  To seek out mystery, we don't have to go anywhere.  We must simply change our preception, our description, our consciousness of where we are.
