Thanks Tish for your wonderful reminder the other day of the legendary writer Clarissa Pinkola-Estes.
In case you don’t know of her, Clarissa wrote the book Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of The Wild Woman Archetype,
This book calls upon the eternal feminine qualities in each of us and asks us to acknowledge and celebrate them in a way that’s also honouring nature, the seasons and the deep muddy pathways we take through life. It’s wise and wonderful. Here is one powerful quote about love. I think its equally as pertinent to men as it is to women.
“Love in its fullest form is a series of deaths and rebirths. We let go of phase, one aspect of love, and enter another. Passion dies and is brought back. Pain is chased away and surfaces another time. To love means to embrace and at the same time withstand many ending, and many many beginnings – all in the same relationship.” Clarissa Pinkola Estes
