Inanna, Tiamat, and by a million,
million other names:

Hear me child, and know Me for who I am.
I have been with you since you were
born, and I will stay with you until you
return to Me at the final dusk.
I am the passionate and seductive lover
who inspires the poet to dream.
I am the One who calls to you at the end
of your journey. After the day is done,
My children find their blessed rest in my embrace.

I am the womb from which all things are born.
I am the shadowy, still tomb; all things
must come to Me and bare their breasts
to die and be reborn to the Whole.
I am the Sorceress that will not be
ruled, the Weaver of Time, the Teacher of Mysteries.
I snip the threads that bring my children home to me.
I slit the throats of the cruel and drink the blood of the heartless.
Swallow your fear and come to me,
and you will discover true beauty, strength, and courage.

I am the fury which rips the flesh from injustice.
I am the glowing forge that transforms
your inner demons into tools of power.
Open yourself to my embrace and overcome.

I am the glinting sword that protects you from harm.
I am the crucible in which all the aspects of yourself
merge together in a rainbow of union.
I am the velvet depths of the night sky,
the swirling mists of midnight, shrouded in mystery.
I am the chrysalis in which you will
face that which terrifies you and from
which you will blossom forth, vibrant
and renewed. Seek me at the crossroads,
and you shall be transformed, for once
you look upon my face, there is no return.

I am the fire that kisses the shackles away.
I am the cauldron in which all opposites
grow to know each other in Truth.
I am the web which connects all things.

I am the Healer of all wounds, the
Warrior who rights all wrongs in their
Time. I make the weak strong. I make the
arrogant humble. I raise up the oppressed
and empower the disenfranchised. I am Justice tempered with Mercy.

Most importantly, child,
I am you. I am part of you, and I am within you.

Seek me within and without, and you will be strong.
Know me. Venture into the dark so that
you may awaken to Balance, Illumination, and Wholeness.
Take my Love with you everywhere and
find the Power within to be who you wish.
