Flying in El Rio Debajo El Rio: The river beneath the river, part 7

taken from Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés' Battlescars: women’s souls cannot be killed

The soul can never die; it keeps coming back in new editions

Nonetheless. There is great hope, for nothing can be destroyed. No good idea, no beautiful God’s light illuming darkness can be done away with. The dousing is only momentary. All goodness comes back. Even from the grave, whether a real one or a psychic one. The ignition is always set for re-start and will often turn oveCheck Spellingr and hum if there be but one small spark offered by a kind soul or a wise mind. Maybe repetitive and thoughtful and generous sparks before the ignition catches in all strength. But it will ignite again. From repeatedly witnessing the mythos of the gifted human over these many decades, I can promise you this is true.

This means that we did not lose any of the wisdom from the women who flew before us. Maybe it means that we need to pay more attention and heed the lessons. They have given us glorious gifts that were paid for with blood, heartache, and some lives. Don't let their flights be in vain. Dare to chart new frontiers, to climb higher heights, reach for greater challenges, and to be who you are meant to be.
