The sense of the workshop

Some thoughts of Good Sense about being a daughter, being a mother, being a woman. Celie and Nettie are two sisters. This makes us think: they can represent Love, as authentic gift, which opposes, with non-violence, with the unshakable faith in the deep Self within us, to the "Pretentious or Presumptuous obstinacy" of wanting to be always right, as the beastly side of the Absolute Ego is aware of, expression of the Fetal Ego which prevents oneself from becoming adult and following the path leading us to the top of our Genitality: the sacred Mountain.
The sacred Mountain will be reached when I learn to transform with rigor and discipline the recognized Real Guilt, our Arrogant Claims, in an act of Good Sense to wonder whether We're seeking answers on the reparation, first, on forgiveness, later.  Since expiation does not lead to Life with the capital L , If we are driven to the realization of the project of making harmless the "Medea", inside and outside of us, who originates so many mournings and causes widowers and orphans.
Transforming my own and the other's guilt , means removing the knife from Jason's throat, knife willing to cut the neck in Revenge for the sorrow suffered from the violence of rejection and abandonment. The waiver of Celie is an act of love for herself that has the power of an even stronger sorrow.
Sacred and Profane = the strength of women.
The red of violence, the blue of the Sky of the deep sea.
The pursuit of Well-Being is in recognizing that Woman is the future of Humanity. The merge of sacred and profane is the work of a androgynous feminine able of creating Second Beauty inside, outside and around us.
The color purple is around us, it is an already made beauty; it surrounds the Earth we know. Often we do not realize the color purple is surrounding us in the sanctuary of nature; it is sufficient to look for it as a first reconquest.
Reconquesting the First Beauty of Life gives us the strenght of stepping down from the new Universe in which I put down the roots (that welcoming uterus I was able to recreate to myself in order to be stronger).
Renouncing to the homicidal and suicidal Violence, let us begin, like Ulysses, the journey to ask forgiveness to Neptune. Getting started on the way of Re-Turn and of For-Giveness, we'll get, I believe and hope, in the ancient Universe, not fearful and hostile anymore; the same Universe we had to leave in order not to become extinct. Now the doors open wide to the strenght of love springing from the singing of the heart music and drive us to the embrace with Forgiveness that tastes as good as chocolate, like the perfume of the soul, like the color Purple which originates from the tears: the merge. Here's the Miracle! The rainbow, bridge between earth and sky. The ether is colored with indigo and I breathe the air impregnated with the color of Harmony and Peace.
To you Death, Door of Life!
“Sky and earth have merged, they kissed and with color purple we have adorned ourselves”
