Footprints of Shiva

A chronicle of self-mastery one defiant mistake at a time.
Why, hello #Virginia. You’re looking rather lovely today. I’m glad to be able to see your mountains once again. My deepest gratitude for keeping me safe on the road so that I can see my loved ones again. Thank you for providing us with sustenance and shelter as we welcome the Autumnal #Equinox. I hope all of your children have had a successful harvest and that we all meet this Winter prepared.  (at VDOT Workers Memorial)

Akhilandeshvari —The Goddess Never-Not-Broken

“‘Akhilandeshvari’ translates as “Never Not Broken.” She shows us the power and opportunity of being broken into pieces by heartache, disaster, great misfortune, and other life changes and traumas.

However She takes this to the furthest extreme, purposefully keeping Herself broken wide open, allowing Herself to flow with every current, creating and fragmenting and recreating Herself endlessly.

She steadfastly refuses to paste Herself together into a stable form, shunning the limitations that She’d have to abide and the false identities that would hide Reality.

She rides on a crocodile: the very survival-fear that keep most of us chained to the known and routine is Her flying carpet! She is not controlled by the need to keep her identity consistent, or even alive. She dances and spins and breaks herself into shards of light, tossing out new possibilities for herself like flower petals from a cherry tree.

The Goddess Never-Not-Broken promises that the greatest magic is in the transformative moments: the heartbreak, the uncertainties, the pause before we hit the ground… and what we do with ourselves after we land.

It’s normal to fear and resist change, but Akhilandeshvari whispers to us also of freedom — liberation from the past, from habits and wounds, from stifling routines, from everything that once was good but has become a burden or a prison. Liberation, indeed, from all the illusions of the ego.”
