"Many feminine images have ignited the fantasy of the Mexicans. But the myth of María Felix is different - such a woman - with the audacity to defy the ideas machos have constructed of what a woman should be…she disperses the clouds, or illuminates them with the lightning flash of her gaze."
- Octavio Paz, Mexico’s Nobel Prize-winning poet

Forget about your life situation and pay attention to your life. Your life situation exists in time. Your life is now. Your life situation is mind-stuff. Your life is real.

Eckhart Tolle (via lazyyogi)

for she so loves the earth,
she collects water turned stone,
brews sweet and pungent herbs,
and burns sage

this is not witchcraft.
this is a woman
in sacred space
making tea

this is not a love spell
this is a woman loving
herself

are there no better words
for a woman who chooses
to heal than,
witch?
