Tending the Temple

This morning as I sat in front of my flower filled alter and tenderly lit candles for all of the exquisite goddesses placed there, it occurred to me that its been awhile since I had tended to the goddess in my own heart with as much reverence and love. Today I will practice offering rose petals and light into the darkest corners of my being. 

I will try to remember that this body, exactly as it is, is my very own temple and the next time I feel tempted to look outside myself for any type of fulfillment, I will instead turn to the goddess inside, who has been patiently waiting for me to remember her.
