Why doesn't a soul fly when it hears the Call?.
Fish on the beach always move toward wave sound.
A falcon hears the drum and brings the quarry home.
Why is not every dervish dancing in the Sun?
You have escaped the cage.
Your wings are stretched out.
You have slept in sheds and outbuildings
so long that you think you live there.
How many years, like children,
do we have to collect sticks and pieces of broken
and pretend that they are valuable?
Leave childhood behind. Go to the banquet of true
Split open the cultural mold,
Put your head up out of the sack.
Hold this book in the air with your right hand

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies.
Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.
I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.
Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.
Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
