"What do you see when you see Me?"
the Goddess asked.
I looked. "I see a woman with long, dark hair, deep blue eyes that reflect the moon, strong shoulders, and capable hands. I see a serene face ... always smiling."
"Look again, child."
I looked, and suddenly I was whirling out to the edges of the universe, then back, aware of every star, every planet, each creature on the Earth. I knew the pain of a billion births, the joy of a billion spring afternoons, the sound of every breath ever drawn.
"I see ..." I stammered, still lost in the vision, "I see everything, my Lady."
All grew still around me, and again I looked into a woman's face. "I see gray-blue eyes, reddish hair, a small mouth ... oh ...
I see myself."
She smiled. "You're learning."
