A weekly Wednesday Wisdom post with two or three profound or beautiful thoughts on a theme related to Paganism and childbearing. An invitation to meditate or just to pause a moment and consider.
Sex, life force, creativity, fertility…
“Sexuality is a manifestation of the creative life force. Even if conception is not intended or achieved through a sex act, our sexual drive exists biologically in large part for the purpose of creating a new person: something quite significant in a nature religion.” -Jennifer Hunter, Rites of Pleasure: Sexuality in Wicca and NeoPaganism
“Invoking fertility is about tuning in to this joyful celebration of sex as divine creativity, believing in the capacity of your body to do this awesome thing, and also about making a direct request to the universe for the blessing of a child.” — Jackie Singer, Birthrites
Where does sexuality belong in a conversation about the sacredness of childbearing?
