"The Goddess of Liberty was known in antiquity to the Greeks as Demeter.   She was named "The Goddess of Liberty" for Her complete and wholehearted identification with the Divine Quality and Flame of Liberty - Her "God Consciousness" of Liberty. Her statue on Liberty Island (formerly Bedloe's Island) in New York harbor portrays the figure of Longfellow's "Lady with a Lamp," whom he prophesied, "shall stand in the great history of the land, a noble type of good, heroic womanhood." She is the archetype of the "Woman clothed with the Sun" and the new age woman - inspiring the nations to Illumined Action by the Torch of Illumination and the Book of the Law."


Beloved Friend and Fellow Traveler,

For many of US, Independence Day holds a different context than it did in the past...After experiencing the events that have taken place over the last few years, WE yearn for a true embodiment of LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL...Many feel disheartened, disappointed, and perhaps even ashamed by what has been REVEALed...A country that was chosen to hold the vibration of UNITED seems more divided than ever before...Where do WE go from here?...

If you are searching for meaning BEyond the hotdogs and fireworks, I invite you to CONNECT with a SACRED symbol that has been and continues to BE a guiding LIGHT for the masses...Lady LIBERTY, the 'Mother of Exiles'. SHE is an icon of the Divine Feminine, who holds the torch of ILLUMINATION. SHE has been a touchstone for generations of people who have held onto the hope that their dream of a life of FREEDOM is possible...

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Let US call upon HER to ILLUMINATE our path to EMBRACE our potential to BE LOVE, COMPASSION, and ACCEPTANCE... As the LIGHT SHINES on the shadows of our past, may WE BE ACCOUNTABLE, while WE practice FORGIVEness that paves the way to CO-CREATE a new reality for ourSelves and the generations to come. May WE SEEK our common humanity...May ALL BEings BE truly FREE...and so it is...
