Joy Is Dangerous


It’s said that with Her smile, Kushmanda Devi created the entirety of the universe. Galaxies, planets, and stars blossomed from inky nothingness, and all the other deities manifested from the generative power of her Joy. She is radiant as the sun, where she resides. 🪐💫💥

And it helps me understand why people are scared of womxn, trans, and nonbinary folks of color who are thriving. Who are living expansive lives. Who birth communities and culture. Because we are independent from external validation, and we create from nothing—and that is dangerous to the status quo. From the 2020 Navaratri Series.
