For love of the dark one: songs of Mirabai | M?r?b??, Andrew Schelling
post image
Mehso-so

Book #3 of the year: “For the Love of the Dark One”

I found this in the back corner of a bookstore in Leavenworth and couldn‘t resist. It‘s a book of poems/songs by an Indian princess, Mirabai, in the 1400s-1500s. Mirabai rejected her husband‘s family, status, and wealth to pursue her love and worship of Krishna. This collection is erotic, devout, and an interesting look at one woman‘s rebellion.

The author compares her journey of returning to prayer with the seasons at her beloved Schulenberg Prairie. It is a very reflexive book about how nature can influence prayers. I think I will be rereading this. #JoyousJanuary @Andrew65 My first book for #Booked2022 #AboutCultOrReligion @Cinfhen @BarbaraTheBibliophage @4thhouseontheleft

This was a gorgeous book that I immediately warmed to because of the simple, straightforward way it stated truth over and over again. It resonated with me immediately and spoke to me in its gentle, but passionate practically. This is one I think I‘ll read every year just to remember what matters.

Semester one of my graduate degree in (Christian) Spiritual Formation is complete and I‘ve begun semester two! It has been quite a journey. Last semester was a deep-dive into personal identity, enlightenment, and the problems of the White supremacist evangelical patriarchy & the western Christian world‘s systematic destruction of the earth and human community. Now onto the mystics and feminist/womanist/liberation readings of the Old Testament! 😅

Christine How great!! Been thinking of taking my scholarship more in this direction lately too, though for now I‘m settling for it being part of my “pleasure” reading. If you find time to post about any of your school texts here, I‘ll be an eager audience member! 2w
Megabooks Congratulations! 🥳 This curriculum would fit in well at my church! (edited) 2w
CarolynM So interesting! 2w
GingerAntics I genuinely didn‘t know there was a Christian denomination or group actually acknowledging these things, especially with the current climate of head-in-the-sand social and political behaviours. 2w

Well, this really was such a lovely little book full of simple wisdom. I especially liked the emphasis on how our ancestors live inside us and that we are never really alone because they have been with us since the beginning of time. Just gorgeous prose!

"Even when you think you are sitting alone, your ancestors are sitting with you. Your parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, whether you knew them or not, are there inside of you."
