~Walking the Path of the Pioneer~

As I said before - It ain't easy being a Queen.........

I have been inspired to write this because of an email I received from a friend...

One of those emails life is short ..Etc..Etc....
We read the information and send to five friends the close the email and switch off (literally).

Some of us sit down and meditate on the next step, some of us go home to cook and get back into the daily grind of the tick tock generation, What happened to thelife is short philosophy we adopted two hours ago? The email dissolves into the past as soon as we enter Primark to buy those shoes, or the latest electrical gadget, as we comfort ourselves with 'life is short'.

My life is a mass of chaotic spirituality mixed with wisdom, tears, grace and creativity. There are times when I feel overwhelmed by sadness, joy and love, sometimes I wish I would be able to be satisfied with a 'normal' lifestyle and job (ignorance is bliss). So I strive to honor my self in some way by living creatively.

I have on numerous occasions walked away from situations in my life that was not working for me - and as the scales require balance I have also stayed too long in many situations that did not meet my heart and soul needs.

As I close said 'email' my conclusion of the positive emails are this - words of comfort during challenging times. Because lt is hard walking the path of the pioneer, and many people do not want to be in that place of aloneness and constant challenge. It is definitely the place of the blue pill vs the red pill once you take either pill you are at that place of no return .

*Thoughts on Sista Hood*

I posted this as a response one of myspace friends an amazing woman Tajmonigrip.


Sista hood is essential - I am so up for womb man hood and sharing, and celebrating our Goddess energy. The influences of the media and the education and social structures that are in place sometimes add fuel our insecurities, and wounds.

To be the best or the prettiest guarantee a higher place on the food chain. In turn we become more competitive, distrustful and scorn towards each other. As sista circles lose out to plasma televisions and pirate DVD'S etc we are becoming a more disenfranchised race. The Matriarch the powerhouse of the family has been relegated to the position of just looking good with no sense of self and rightful position in this society.

We have to own our greatness; we have to go through a personal revolution and evolution before we have our own solution, which cannot be found outside of ourselves. This is why I posted the blog who is the Goddess because we so need to know ourselves.

Keep up the good work Sisters, I see the beauty in you only because I recognize the beauty in myself. Ashe
