One of the greatest, spiritual awakenings of man, is when he has channeled through, and immersed in the mysteries of woman. Seeing woman as a creature of intellect, wonder, and treasure; leading to infinite possibilities. Worlds that man never knew existed. Opportunities aligning him with the Divine. Interconnecting him with a greater concept of self. An image and arena, on which he has yet to even see, feel, taste, hear, or smell. And, its all because he has not reached that level.
When you think of the word, “legend,” there are special and sacred images, which comes to mind. Those beings, spaces, and places that can not be seen, touched, or experienced by everyone. In fact, they aren’t meant to. Its what makes them. . . legendary. Often times when one hears about the legends, it is through the mouths of those special Beings, who were privey enough to experience them. Their unique and intrinsic picture of having encountered. . .legends. A description that is told through the miracles of tongue. The Spirit of legends are so close to the Divine, that you can feel they’re having been sent from the Heavens for whatever work they were meant to do on Earth; and whomever, they were meant to do it with.
Legends are not meant for everyone to experience. Whether it includes people or places. They are sacred for a reason. Which means that only those willing to make that spiritual journey to see them, will have the privilege of being in the comforts of. . .legends, or legendary spaces! When it comes to legendary women, we are discussing those feminine energies, that nations went to war for. Those beings that men were willing to die for because such women re-birthed, and created, so much life. Such legends were pursued. Often, they could be found in lush spaces of Earth’s womb. Gardenal spaces. And men had to truly journey to those spaces. Their mystique was housed in the abundance of Earth’s vegetation; wherever it was placated on planetary domains. She labored, created, and crafted in wild gardens. In wild habitats, she spread and re-generated feminine energies and mystery throughout these areas, so that fellow women of her culture (and those feminine visitors) could experience love, healing, and explorations of their unique creativity to womanhood. In these lush spaces, legends made love. They taught men the true artistry of love-making, and its connection to a greater calling. Legendary women secured their temples, as vectors of healing. The special man, who journeyed across waters, lands, or the harshest of Earth’s domains to find a legendary woman, was greatly rewarded by her very existence. For it meant that he had entered into a sacred convenant with the Divine. That he saw his physical, emotional, mental, and sexual connection to a woman, as a celebration to the Heavens. As an experience of heaven while on Earth.
When searching for a legend, those special men (brave enough to locate legendary women-and, in particular, the one who was right for him) would soon learn that finding one’s own legend was not an easy task. For legendary women are different from ordinary women. They are not easy to find. And, if one happens to hear of (or locate one), they are not easy to be near. Feminine legends are complicated beings. There is great depth to their very existence. They force men to go deeper into their own mystique, in order to find them. Which means that those special men, willing to find a legend, travel on a path where the Earth creates markings of Heaven, in her soils. A man goes on a true journey to really learn the mysteries of womanhood. To really see her, in her entirety. And, not simply one of sexual pleasures, and his ability to “please her” in that arena. Even if he has had sacred and beautiful experiences in that realm, there is still untapped energy that he has not felt. Furthermore, this unexplored energy requires the dismantling of the ego; as he is forced to surrender, if he desires to experience this arena of his legend. The spiritual and emotional riches, that he has yet to hear of; let alone know that they even exist. A level of spiritual nudity, which transcends regular views of male physicality and prowess. In order to pursue, and locate, a legendary woman, he must find harmony, stability, and oneness with nature. He must learn to appreciate the natural realm, as it is the only way that he will find her. Which means that he must acknowledge his dependence on nature’s vegetation, when entering her domain. Humbling himself to know that he can never “conquer” nature. Its better to align with her, in search of his prize. A legend.
There are men, who have written songs and poetry, concerning, legends. . .of the feminine persuasion. And, if you are to study the lyrics, sonnets, and imagery, carefully, you will see how this ancient wisdom, subconsciously reveals itself. The connection of women to natural landscapes, planetary elements, and what have you. Men will highlight the mystery of these particular women. There is something about them, that can’t be adequately described through words. One must simply experience their energy and aura. Which means you have to do the work of migrating to them. These legendary women (and the height of what makes them legendary) are not found in regular places. Not even in upscale places. They are found where money cannot put a price on. No! Their value is worth more than money. For they are priceful, only if you reach that stage, where they are. . .priceless. When you finally come into their presence, natural domains means that you have broken down to spiritual nudity, in order to become whole, again. A man is re-birthed, replenished, and re-stored when he meets his legend. No longer a piece of meat for lust and fantasy of the naked eye. No. More is required. More takes place in order to connect his body with his Soul. A legend knows this. She cannot fully taste him if the two have not become one.
In the song, “Legend,” by twenty one pilots, listeners are re-introduced to the role of legendary women and their connection to the natural realm. Her Spirit of movement and ability to occupy different planes of the Earth is also what defines a legend.
“You were one of those classic ones, travelin’ around the sun”
Notice how the use of the term, “classic,” indicates a period of prior origin. One, whose knowledge had been mastered by those lucky enough to have lived, during that time. For legendary women to have traveled around the sun, means that there was familiarity with its existence. Therefore, the sun must have taken on feminine qualities. That of nurturer, mother, giver, creator of nourishment, and so forth. The depth of this lyric goes even further to highlight the movement of one’s legend; it being akin to a natural rhythm. The phenomenon of such a lyric is how it extends legends to the Universal domains. Foreshadowing heavenly artistry and connection, without necessarily mentioning the exact terms. This again goes to prove how man’s proper connection to a legend ensures that he will reach a spiritual awakening; a spiritual cleansing, especially in the context of intimacy. The experience will be greater than the very act, itself.
A performance of actor, model, and R&B Singer, Rotimi, (A Night With Rotimi Unplugged), gives a brief insight into these ancient tales of those women, whom nations would refer to, as. . .legends. His song, “Legend,” drops clues concerning such women.
” I would make some plans, somewhere in the sands with you”
This very poetic structure alone, hints to the element of time. Being in the “sands of time,” and its requiring of patience when learning more of one’s. . .legend. Returning to Earth’s domain in order to understand her, and his connection to. . .her. And not merely running through the sand for fun, or the fantasy of being with someone. Rather, exploring the mysteries of sand, its silence, and the artistry of observing one’s legend-really seeing her-when she matriculates through one symbolic representation of time. How does she maneuver through this measurement of time? Is there an intimacy recognized when a man’s legend truly glides her hands through desert sands? Gliding them profusely so that she doesn’t miss even a tiny portion of its sensory and titillating rhythms. And when a man sees his true love and legend, how does he feel his own Being and invisible vibration of rhythms, when he observes her caressing and smoothing through. . .the timing of sands?
Prior to singing the song, “Legend,” from his album, Walk With Me, Rotimi speaks to his predominantly female audience, on his understanding of “a legend.” If one listened clearly, one understood that what made a woman-legendary- is that men truly found sanctuary, solace, and peace in her midst. They learned of life’s hidden mysteries, in her presence. Not simply being comforted by flat comments and false praise. Always remember that words are cheap or patterns of deceit, if they do not have the fruitious energy, which enrichens them. Furthermore, such attributes only serve to stroke a man’s ego; keeping him in bondage, thereby preventing him from elevating to and immersing with greater powers of his existence. Surrendering to that power ensures that he will perform in it. That when Rotimi mentions a woman who supports her man, it is one where she continues the rich energies of her garden, so that he is able to plant seeds of abundance for his own success and nourishment on Earth. Of course, echoes of Nigeria clearly has articulated its haven of legends-which continues to water his Soul, while he paints sonnets in Black America’s musical gardens.
There are other bodies of literature, works of art, sonnets of poetic rhythm, and sounds of vocal therapy, which articulates the very Being of. . .legendary women. Those legends of the present. Memories of the past. And, ones who will color the future. Their composition and foundation is of the same pattern. It doesn’t matter which nation, or landscape they originate from. The blueprint is the same. And, it is always connected to the Earth. How they have nurtured women, and guided men in it. Legendary women are greatly significant I Earth’s healing. In societal healing. They bring harmony to humanity. Teaching them how they are to align with the Earth. Aligning with other human beings, where the Earth is the focal point.
So, in the way of women legends, let’s leave Heaven’s traces in the soiling. That way a Divine, legendary connection to Earth continues as a fascinating find! Guiding those special Beings, with immaculate minds!
