There will be a few blog posts with my personal responses to some of the questions found in each chapter of this book. I urge you to follow along with me as we experience the Goddess within.
The sixteenth chapter is about Kali and you can find the questions I will be answering in this post on page 206 of the book.
I think that archaeologists would see all the books I have and know that knowledge was important to me and the majority of the books are on witchcraft, Wicca, and spirituality so that would be an indication of what was most important and in the same room they would discover my two altars. Not to mention the wall decorations also having a pagan theme to them. I think this shows that I am a very spiritually minded individual.
If you were to simplify your life by eliminating one activity from this week, what would it be? Why?
Well, this week hasn't been like any other week as I injured my back so my activities are limited AND I am fasting so I haven't been preparing food for myself - just the children. I don't think I have many activities that I would eliminate to simply my life. I could cut down on the time I spend on social media although my business (the way I earn my income) depends a lot on social media and marketing myself and my brand so .... not sure what I would eliminate.
Have you made preparations for your inevitable death? Have you made a will? If not, why not?
I have not made preparations for my inevitable death. I am aware that death is imminent however I don't find it beneficial for my overall well-being to focus on the future but instead to live in the NOW - focus on today and what blessings I have received and what is most important to me right NOW. I have discussed briefly with my spouse what I would like done to my body at my physical death.
How do you wish to be buried? How do you want your funeral service to be? Have you made these wishes known to your friends and family?
I do not wish to be buried but instead want to be cremated. It really doesn't matter what my funeral service is ... preferably Wiccan or pagan in nature. I would love it if my husband had a party to celebrate the life I lead and not my death.
When you think about the world after your death, what images come to mind? What emotions do you feel?
The only concern I have about my death is my children. I want to be sure that they feel stable and secure even after I am no longer physically on earth to care for them. I don't have any other emotional attachments to life. I know my husband will be sad, I realize he will miss my presence but I know he will survive.
If you could live for a thousand years, what would you do with your time?
I do not wish to live for a thousand years. I will be satisfied if I live to be 100.
Have there been times in your life when you felt threatened by death? How did it feel to you?
I had a brief moment of thought I was going to die when I was having a miscarriage and I was bleeding. When the doctors rushed me into the ER for my D & C I thought I was possibly going to die. I was fearful but at the time I was an active member of the Jehovah's Witnesses and they really thrived on fear, which is why I believe I did as well.
Is there anything you could imagine dying for? What? Why?
I would die for my children and my husband. I think that I would sacrifice my life to save theirs because I realize they are younger and have a longer life to live. I love them and feel an obligation to be certain that they are taken care of.
Is there anything you could imagine killing for? What? Why?
Again I could only imagine killing for my children or my husband if their lives were threatened. I might also kill for my own survival. It's difficult to really imagine and I would like to believe that I would find another way out of any option but if pushed to a corner I might take a life to save another.
