Mythology Meme: Nine Greek Gods/Goddesses (1/9)
For life springs forth from the darkness of the earth
The daughter of Zues and Demeter, and becomes the queen of the underworld. She is also known as Kore, The maiden, before her kidnapping. Persephone’s abduction by Hades, the king and god of the underworld, represents the fertilization of the land, for spring is the time that the plants spring out of the earth and then retreat into the earth after the harvest.
Persephone is a goddess of vegetation and like her mother is a goddess that predates the Olympian pantheon, and was worshiped with her own mysteries cults.
Beautiful things happen in the dark.
When the sun goes to sleep
When the stars give light kisses
When the moon is a spotlight
Life stays beautiful even when you are covered in darkness
I like to think of life as a terminal illness. You can either fight it or let it kill you, some people say it all depends on “when” . That you keep yourself healthy so you are safe from dying sooner. However the thing about life, is no matter what you do, bad or good, the cancer can kill you at anytime. The healthiest person can die in a car wreck for someone else’s mistakes. A chain smoker with heart problems can live to be 92. It’s not about trying to fight the cancer of life. It’s learning how to live it the way you want, right now, despite the odds. Knowing that it’s terminal.
