I was reminded this week of the legendary story of Krishna and Radha, the supreme power couple. It is one of devotion. And divine love.
Krishna was a charismatic flute playing avatar who was be-loved by all the ‘gopis’ (local milkmaids). His consort Radha starts her life as an ordinary girl who through her intense affection and unwavering devotion captures the wandering heart of the Lord Krishna. It is then that she becomes a celebrated goddess.
“Lord Krishna enchants the world, but Sri Radha enchants even Him. Therefore She is the supreme goddess of all. Sri Radha is the full power, and Lord Krishna is the possessor of full power….Radha and Krishna are one, although they have taken two forms to enjoy a relationship.” -Chaitanya-charitamrita [Adi-lila 4.95-98]
Radha-Krishna have today become a single term, both having no meaning without each other. They are One.
While their relationship represents romantic love for us mortals, it is a philosophical teaching. Radha represents the devotee, both male and female, and Krishna represents the Divine. Radha’s intense love for Krishna symbolizes each devotee’s passionate longing for spiritual communion with God.
Contemplate this for a moment. What would utter devotion mean to you? Where do you usually pull back from opening your heart completely?
This full offering of your heart to the Beloved is the gateway to true connection to Spirit. And your connection to Spirit fuels your creativity and passion which is the path of receiving abundance into your life.
The goddess energy attracts. She embodies the divine feminine. She manifests. Wild love. Fertility. Abundant & Creative Projects. Style & sensuality.
How can you push past your learned love barriers and embody the devotional qualities of Goddess Radha? What would it feel like to add “goddess” to your list of characteristics? To shine….your physical heart leading your stride? Your eyes softly gazing into every other “lover” you meet? To look at every other with eyes of adoration? To see past faults and fears and see only love?
Will you make this commitment with me? To intend to fully live from the heart. To notice the fear, the protective barriers, the mental chatter pulling you back – and love anyway? A complete offering. Tell me in the comments below.
