SHAKTIHindu Goddess of Primal Energy
The primal stirring of pure awareness that gives rise to existence is Shakti. Pure awareness is static, transcendent, peace, unmoving, and unchanging. Shakti is dynamic energy, immanent, love, and perpetually moving and changing. Pure awareness is masculine while Shakti is feminine. Thus, it is the divine feminine that produces universes without end and all the beings that occupy them. In Taoist terminology, pure awareness would be yang while Shakti would be yin. Thus Shakti is resolve, will and energy and She is expansive. The sum total of all the energy in existence and the will to direct it is Shakti. Every God in Hinduism has his Shakti and without Her energy they have no power. The play of female energy has no beginning and no end. Although restless by nature, it cycles through periods of rest and motion.
The following is reprinted from the book Soft Moon Shining.
I LOVE YOUMother of endless grace
Have I told you today
that I love you?
Did I forget to tell you yesterday?
Because there is no joy
outside of our love
Every heart is a river
that flows into your shoreless ocean
Every ray of light
is a golden tipped arrow
filling space with the love
of your timeless being
Every soul is a mirror
destined to reflect love's immortal victory
My sweet Mother of the Universe
I dissolve like sugar
in your warm embrace
And the only thing left to say
is "I love you"

The book Soft Moon Shining by Ethan Walker III is a work of devotional poetry that revolves around God in the feminine form. Like Rumi, Hafiz and Ramprasad, Soft Moon Shining beautifully and effortlessly ferries the reader into the realm of the Divine on the ship of innocent love. It is an invitation to step into the heart of the Goddess - the all-pervading Divine Mother of the Universe. The Goddess is ready to shower Her love and affection on any who care to turn their gaze toward Her luminous heart.
