Doorway of the Triquetra may be fictional, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a great deal of truth to be found within these pages. As Mira goes upon her journey of self-discovery and learns about her past lives, we readers also learn more about how life was supposed to be as opposed to how life truly is. We learn harsh lessons about the misuse of, and lust for, power over others and the greedy hoarding of power. And we learn that, in the end, it is through creating a new balance of power, including women, and understanding the feminine Divine, that we can turn this world around and make things right again.
Now, there are going to be those among you who will be wondering “what is this person rambling about?” You are the ones who are, hopefully, going to learn the most from this book. But don’t be afraid – it’s not full of metaphysical blah blah – it’s an entertaining fantasy book that just so happens to also touch upon great truths. Those of us who are already aware of the dramatic changes ahead for humankind, as we ascend to a higher level of consciousness, will know a lot of this stuff already, and will find within these pages a validation and celebration of our beliefs. Those of you who have so far remained unaware of these changes might find yourselves a little lost at times, but bear with it – this is a valuable book, and I have no doubt in my mind that future books in this series and the others being planned by Lenore will help us to find more of the keys that we require in order to put everything together and start to lead humanity to a new awareness, and a closer connection to the Earth. As a popular song among us says: “The Earth is our Mother – we must take care of Her.”
Sadly, up until now, we haven’t been doing such a good job at that. With the suppression of Goddess worship by the mainstream churches, people have been disconnected from our Mother and have taken it upon themselves to be Her master instead of her steward. As a result we have ripped huge holes in Her skin with our mining, bled Her dry by taking away her oil, and filled Her breath with pollutants, destroying the purity of the air. We have clear-cut Her forests, which are necessary to keep Her air clean and to protect Her top soil; we have cut roads into Her skin over which we drive our gas-guzzling SUVs, burning Her blood so we can keep moving. We no longer have any connection to the foods we eat – the foods that She, in Her bounty, has supplied for us; instead of growing our own gardens, we buy fruits and vegetables that have been grown out of season and covered with poisons; instead of hunting for our own meat and using every bit of the animal, while giving thanks to its spirit for its sacrifice, we eat the flesh of animals that have been pumped full of hormones and steroids and fed on unnatural feeds that often include bits and pieces of other slaughtered animals. We have abandoned our roles as guardians of the land and animals – we have grown accustomed to controlling and owning instead of sharing.
When Lenore asked me to write this, I wasn’t sure what I would say – I’m just the editor of this book, not the one who created these characters and utilized our sacred stories in order to try to bring enlightenment to you, the reader. But I just decided to sit down and write from the heart – I hope that it has spoken to you, and that you enjoy this amazing story as much as I have. Blessings on your Path.
