LOVE.

They also cut out the line, “I got a horrible UTI” which follows, “I once tried to masturbate with an electric toothbrush” a line in which they did NOT feel the need to cut.


What MAN is responsible? I need to know.

THE WORD VAGINA IS STILL BLEEPED OUT

Not penis. Not fuck. Not dick. Not bitch.

But vagina can’t be said.

“Often, our minds, conditioned and indoctrinated as they have been, can prevent us from perceiving the truth. Usually, our bodies can tell us more.”

“It is mind blowing, when you look up, rather than down, and realize just how tiny you are; just a little heart beating in a sliver of time from eternity. And yet, you’re part of the universe, made from vibrating cosmic energy, just like those twinkling stars light years away. You, me, and everything—all connected.”

“The heart that loves, must one day grieve. Love and grief are the Goddess’s twined gifts. Let the pain in; let it open your heart to compassion. Let me help you bear your grief, and then, may your heart ease, and open to greater love. Then, may the love that flows eternally through the universe, embrace and comfort you.”

― Cate Tiernan, Sweep: The Calling, Changeling, and Strife; (Volume Three)

Trust patterns, but don’t excessively keep score. You are not God just because you notice patterns. You don’t own people, nor do you have the full, omniscient scope of their personhood just because you notice patterns. Patterns are intrinsic. So is change. People have depths not even they will uncover in their lifetimes, let alone you. Flow with your own life, and make room for different shades, different configurations, the tides and winds of change. Don’t let patterns make you feel bitter, or better. You are just as susceptible to being a slave to habits and patterns, as are the people you accuse of possessing such a disappointing predictability, the people you demand consistency from, so you can feel safe and superior. We are also just as capable of radical transformation, and profound change, during different seasons in our lives. And all of us have the potential of activating the more subtle and determined commitment of a conscious lifestyle change. See patterns, trust yourself, activate creative genius, and, in turn, generate new narratives with fresh frequencies.

“The ideal man? Oh, the ideal man should talk to us as if we were goddesses, and treat us as if we were children. He should refuse all of our serious requests, and gratify every one of our whims. He should encourage us to have caprices, and forbid us to have missions. He should always say much more than he means, and always mean much more than he says. He should never run down other pretty women. That would show he had no taste, or make one suspect that he had too much. No; he should be nice about them all, but say that somehow, they don’t attract him. If we ask him a question about anything, he should give us an answer all about ourselves. He should invariably praise us for whatever qualities he knows we haven’t got. But he should be pitiless, quite pitiless, in reproaching us for the virtues that we have never dreamed of possessing. He should never believe that we know the use of useful things. That would be unforgivable. But he should shower on us everything we don’t want. He should persistently compromise us in public, and treat us with absolute respect when we are alone. And yet, he should be always ready to have a perfectly terrible scene, whenever we want one, and to become miserable, absolutely miserable, at a moment’s notice, and to overwhelm us with just reproaches in less than twenty minutes, and to be positively violent at the end of half an hour, and to leave us forever at a quarter to eight, when we have to go and dress for dinner.”
