Kali knows all about moving. Once, some demons decided to build a freeway right through the neighborhood where all the gods lived. It was a really nice neighborhood, very homey and with good public schools and a really vibrant cultural scene. But that didn't mean anything to the demons. They just brought in this supernatural Tantric excavator and started tearing up the street. All the gods got mad and started attacking the demons, and the gods totally would have won except there was this one demon, and whenever someone whacked a body part off of him, each drop of his blood would turn into a clone demon. So it was like demon town.
Kali had been at the mall when all this happened, but she got back in time to see clone demons not only tearing up the streets, but laying asphalt where the Tantric Starbucks used to be. Well, Kali just totally lost it, and she started killing the demons and instantly sucking up all their blood. Finally, she destroyed the demons, and the gods were all, "Hooray! Let's gentrify!"
But Kali was all, "Sorry guys. You can't go backwards. You can only go forwards." She helped them pack up, which was easy for her because she had ten arms. Eventually, they all settled near the beach, which was really much nicer anyway.
Kali reminds us that change is the only constant in life. Our worlds fall apart, we move, we lose people and things and places that we love, and new worlds are created in their stead. Sometime we like the change, and sometimes the change is really, really hard. But we can only go forwards. So here's to new worlds, and here's to new homes. Wherever you are Deb, that will be home, and it will be a good home, because it will glow from the light within you.
Channel this goddess: In times of change, when moving, when you need ten arms to help with packing, when deciding what to keep and what to toss.
