I spent time recently going through pages and pages of my writing about Eve. As I read, I came across this: (a portion of) my imagining of what Eve would tell us if she could; if we would but listen…
“It’s not the distrusting of God that separates you from your very self and the Divine; rather, the distrusting of yourself as Divine. It’s not your desire that gets you into trouble; rather, the belief that your desire is somehow disconnected from what is right and good.
“What is right and good is what you hear and sense and believe and know within. That voice is the Divine. That voice is the image and presence of God within you. That voice is mine within you. And all that keeps you from hearing it, following it, trusting it, is just a hiss…a snake in the grass that attempts to keep you contained, conformed, and constrained.”
Eve speaks. All the time. This, but a glimpse of what she longs for you to know, believe, imbue, and live. You are her daughter. Trust that this is so – and right – and good. It might just change everything.
