Kali - Dekada

KALI is one of the most well known and worshipped Hindu Goddesses. It is derived from the Hindu word that means "time", and that also means "black". In Hinduism, is a manifestation of the Divine Mother, which represents the female principle. Frequently, those not comprehending her many roles in life call Kali the goddess of destruction. She destroys only to recreate, and what she destroys is sin, ignorance and decay. She is equated with the eternal night, is the transcendent power of time…

For me, KALI is mainly a combination of names.
Me and my best friend… very elementary huh!

But this name has brought us in a decade of togetherness…
being one, being Kali.

KA is also term for Kapatid (brethren) which you can call Ka Lizzie... 

When I first search for the meaning of this, I found BLACK…
I was stunned. Without reading first the whole content, I was thinking of changing it.

Then I browsed another… It says GOD of DESTRUCTION…
Whaaaaaaaaat??? My precious name… the US means destruction?
Hmmm.

I continue researching - read several interpretations.
I liked the one I pasted on top…
It’s for me to choose. My choice wins. This is my blog after all :)

But what’s really with the name? What goes with it?
Does the meaning of your name reflect in you?
It is identity.
But, should you be identified to what your identity means?

I don’t know if some of you also did what I’ve done.
And I don’t know if it makes sense...

But I’ve learn something; that everything on earth have corresponding meaning. In one way or another (through the net, specially) you will find some response to those unanswered questions, or just know something for the heck of it!

And I realized that the value of identity is that so often with it, comes purpose.
It’s not the meaning.
Identity seems to be the garment with which one covers the nakedness of the self…
the shadow where people hide to escape the sunlight.

We don't have to be too cautious in keeping and maintaining our identity.
I believe it is better to persevere in keeping its integrity.
It is not really WHAT we are. It is more important to know WHO we are.

Our KALI has survived a lot of struggles... storms come & go… different chapters… test of faith… phases of life… growing up… We have tagged a lot of names to the trials that we encounter…

and it is not over yet,
we know and we need to prepare...
but these trials, are the base of our identity – a being of worth & dignity.

kali,
I also looked up the name Kali when you first visited my blog, but only got as far as Hindu Goddess. I didn't see the rest of it. I guess the destruction part would have come as a surprise for you :) Mine name is simple. I like dragons and I wish I could fly:)

KALI said...

hi flydragon!
yeah... 't really made me think twice. but the sentimental part of it wont just be erased... that's why i continue reading - ilooked for something better :)
flydragon is simple... but it seems there's something more than that!

Maybe meanings like the God of Destruction are significative when a person believe, because at the end of the day we are only the subject giving a meaning to the objects, choosing and destroying them at the same time. May not be the meaning... well maybe, depends on the observer.

hi XtremString :)

sorry for the late reply. i just arrived from my holidays...
and escape from the computer for 2 weeks :)

yes, we are the ones who put meanings on things and/or other incidents...

it is better to know and identify WHO we are, as a person, that WHAT we are...
