“Many goodbyes will come to you, they will be part of your memory and they will be your learning; only someone will stay in you forever, when you learn to recognize it your life will be full ”Teh Messenger
By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
Life is a gift that we cannot always appreciate, it is enough to know that we were rescued from death at some point in life to feel that some powerful reason awaits us to be found and that is why we are alive, that we are survivors of something or someone.
In the distant ocean came the din of seagulls in search of food, the seafoam gathered between the rocks, the journey towards the mouth burned in Dayami’s body, that undefined body that grouped and dispersed in the same way that the waves of the sea do, let’s call it a body to feel that viscous plasma substance was not inert and was aware of everything that was happening around it.
The seafoam gathered between the rocks
How do you know? It is a matter of Erandi’s magic and she realized at the moment that “The Goddess of the River” had found her way to a different scenario, a more violent habitat with an intense flavor. Erandi said to herself:
<We have reached the second stage of this journey, nothing will prevent you from knowing what we need to know, dear Dayami.>
If you have ever dreamed of invisibility, you would possibly understand how fascinating it is to penetrate other bodies and feel their breathing, their heartbeat letting you be carried by them wherever they go.
What will be in Erandi’s mind to recognize the journey and understand what is impossible for others? What are the talents of those who can see beyond their own limits and design strategies and knowledge!
We would have to be as reckless as she or even more so than some of those gifted with wings in the soul, but if you ask a little one about the logic of all this, they will undoubtedly consider it possible and will be part of their dreams.
Life changes us, tests us and shows us how territorial, ineffable or limited we are, it is enough to believe that the impossible is achievable and let the course of events give these women the opportunity to rescue what matters.
Now a part of Dayami is found in the body of a snapper, if it is hunted by a seagull, it may not be able to reach the sea … Another part follows the course of the ocean currents that today we know as the Gulf of Mexico.
Erandi touches and caresses her belly under the watchful eye of her partner who now cares for her with more care and asks:
-Woman, tell me what is happening, you have time in total silence and I notice you are worried
-Our child moves, she just like me, she senses that Dayami is already in the ocean, she is left to her own devices and to the predators that catch or limit her. It is just that, my beloved, her luck is ours and the sea is violent, it is what keeps me silent.
They both look and hug each other in the hope that all their effort is not in vain. Erandi comments about her:
-She has accepted the challenge and the deities accompany her, now and ever her life has changed.
It only remains to wait for the moments that give Erandi a light of understanding in all this, each being who has departed from the life of the priestess of the Ometeotl temple, has done so forever.
Something unites them and that changes every perspective of what we can imagine, they are three women on different paths and with specific tasks to fulfil, each one carries different energy in their spirit.
When life prompts you to accomplish a task, everything may be against you, the importance of your goal does not reside in it, no noise or foolish words will be important when you know what you have to do.
