Timeless Wisdom
Written & Illustrated by Roslyne Sophia Breillat
Excerpt From "Womb of Wisdom, The Sacred Journey of Menopause"

Kairos, the timeless time that weaves and dances and flows within the heart of a realm beyond minutes and hours and days and months and years, is woman's time. For Kairos is the timeless and mysterious realm of the sacred feminine.

Kairos cannot be measured and weighed and quantified. For this timeless time of Kairos has no breadth or depth. It cannot be chased or hurried or forced. It cannot be dissected, pondered or contemplated. And although it cannot be seen or heard, Kairos can be sensitively intuited, exquisitely felt and deeply lived. Kairos cannot be experienced as chronological time, for Kairos arises from a mystical place where time does not exist. And Kairos arises from a mystical place where time disappears. For Kairos, like the essence of woman, is beyond existence. In ancient civilizations, the beneficent nurturance of Mother Earth was carved with an intricate series of underground labyrinths that offered a way to the centre, the source, the womb of this beloved Mother. These sacred pathways were believed to flow directly into the centre of her heart. Here, within the comforting and enveloping darkness of these deep womb places, she provided revitalization, replenishment and renewal. And here, within the peace and quietude of this timeless realm, those who entered became deeply connected with the sacredness of the earth and with her powerful capacity for death and rebirth.

And so it is for the woman who is ready to embrace the true purpose of her menopausal journey. Like Persephone, the daughter of Demeter in ancient Greek mythology, she descends into this vast and seemingly unknown space of the underworld, into this sacred feminine realm of transition and change. She knows not when or how she will surface once more to the shining lightness of the dawn, to the glowing warmth of the sunshine or to the fragrant blossoming of spring.

And in the moment of this deep descent, nothing of this matters. She knows that she must dive deeply into the timeless essence of this underground realm of transformation, into the oceanic depths of this underworld womb of rebirth, until it is time for her to resurface as a woman of wisdom and as a woman of power.

For her transformation must take place within the sacred realm of the timeless. She is in need of a cavern of solitude. She is in need of a welcoming womb space of quiet stillness where she can freely embrace the changes that are now taking place within her body and her psyche. And she is in need of a receptive womb space where she can fully imbibe this important pilgrimage of inner death and rebirth. For she has no need for the confining predictability of linear time constraints right now. And she has no need for the familiarity and compromise of unnecessary distractions that can easily seduce her from the true purpose of her inner journey. She is entering the vastness of the infinite void of creation and destruction. She is entering the vastness of menopause.

This dark immortal void of powerful female energy, this profound source of impersonal love and wisdom, is the innately timeless flow of the wise, wild woman. It is the primordial essence of the womb and of the earth. This timeless void is filled with love and clarity and compassion and truth. It has no beginning and it has no end.

Dare she enter the infinite darkness of this mysterious space, of this wise and powerful place? Dare she invite the heart of this place to become released of past trauma, past emotions, past feelings, of past doubts and fears that prevent her from fully surrendering to her power?
