Guest Article on faith and the holy
My friend Raven wrote this, a meditation with Shiva on one of the spiritual reasons why this restoration is such a struggle sometimes. I have no relationship devotionally with Shiva (save respect from afar). Occasionally I’ll give some sweets to Ganesh because I like Him but that’s about it insofar as my relationship to the Hindu Deities go. I have no devotional experience to confirm or deny this with Shiva but this rung true for me on a gut, visceral level and it made me very, very sad. You see, I knew one of these holy women once, (she has since died), and there has never been a time before or since when the work has seemed so vibrant, rooted, connected, and true. It’s food for thought at any rate.
