Whilst never having having had a personal link with any deity, I mused about how it would be to be totally consumed by a deity - something along the lines of William James's Passivity: "... the mystic feels as his own will were in abeyance, and indeed sometimes as if he were grasped and held by a superior power." (James, William, The Varieties of Religious Experience, p. 381).
Ah, I love control! I so adore being at the back seat yet pulling the reigns - but to give oneself up to a Goddess!
Erin mentioned once that the energies of Lilith were fully and wholly consuming, in utter submission.
So here's a few lines I wrote, haphazardly, to Ol' Lily... see if she answers!
"Surround me wholly in the whirlwind of your starless night.
Consume me completely in the ego-destroying forces of midnight -
Owl-woman; desert tempest; shadow mistress."
