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 eighteenth chapter is about Paivatar and you can find the questions I will be answering in this post on page 228 of the book.
Prior to beginning Yoga I would have answered this that my spiritual life had felt stuck or frozen. At this point in my life I feel as if I am going through a transition so that nothing is feeling stuck or frozen; it seems that everything is being shifted.
How do you feel about change? Do you cling to the old because you fear the new? Or do you chase after the new, forgetting the old?
I am ok with change. What is overwhelming to me is when everything is in transition and nothing is stable. At this point although I feel like many aspects of my life is in transition I do feel very stable at the basis. I don't chase new things but I allow new things to come towards me. I like to keep some old things but releasing anything old that no longer serves me.
When you hear a discouraging voice within you, does it sound like anyone you know or have known?
I do hear a discouraging voice from within from time to time. I am learning how to quiet that voice and replace it with one that is more of a supporter and encouraging voice that is louder than the discouraging voice.
How do you respond to that discouraging voice? Do you argue with it? Ignore it and hope it will go away? Deal with it in some other way?
I usually ignore the discouraging voice however I find it more beneficial to listen to what it has to say then shift those feelings into something that is much more encouraging and loving.
What would a perfect day look like for you? Describe it in complete detail.
A perfect day for me would depend on who I am with and what is planned for that day. Generally I dislike deadlines because they cause me stress so a perfect day would have no deadlines. It would be filled with encouraging interactions between myself and other people that I interact with on that day. It would be a day filled with love.
If you had to express your deepest desire in one word, what would it be?
To love and be loved.
