Pagan Footprints

Pagan Footprints
Author unknown

Imagine you and the Lady are walking down the road together. For much
of the
way, the Lady's footprints go along steadily, consistently, rarely
the pace. But your footprints are a disorganized stream of zigzags,
stops, turnarounds, circles, departures, and returns.

For much of the way, it seems to go like this, but gradually your
come more in line with the Lady's, soon paralleling Hers consistently.
and Goddess are walking as true friends! This seems perfect, but then
interesting thing happens: Your footprints that once etched the sand
next to
hers are now walking precisely in Her steps.

Inside Her footprints are your smaller ones, you and the Goddess are
becoming one. This goes on for many miles, but gradually you notice
change.. The footprints inside the other footprints seem to grow
Eventually they disappear altogether. There is only one set of
they have become one. This goes on for a long time, but suddenly the
set of footprints is back. This time it seems even worse! Zigzags all
the place.

Gashes in the sand.
A variable mess of prints.
You are amazed and shocked. Your dream ends.

Now in meditation you speak with her:
"Dear Lady, I understand the first scene with zigzags and fits. I was a
Pagan; I was just learning. But you walked on through the storm and
me learn to walk with you."
"That is correct."
"...And when the smaller footprints were inside of Yours, I was
learning to walk in Your steps; following you very closely." "Very
good. You
have understood everything thus far."
"...When the smaller footprints grew and filled in Yours, I suppose
that I
was becoming you in every way."
"So, Dear Lady, was there a regression or something? The footprints
separated, and this time it was worse than at first."
There is a pause as my Dear Lady answers me with a smile in her voice.
"You didn't know? That was when we danced and sang!!!"
Maybe now you're starting to understand that while I may have been born predispositioned to be pretty batty, my parents saw to it that it was a certainty and completely unavoidable. -Me

Absolutely wonderful. I will have to print that out to keep with me. It so inspiring, as I'm still new to being Pagan.
