Inanna's temple was created for worship and to give thanks by reenacting through the art of ritual her great abundance and renewing energy. There was always a living tree that grew inside her great temple that represented the power that lies within all living things. The roots of the tree stretching deep and solid in the ground, with it’s trunk and branches reaching skyward for nurturing and warmth and funneling the elements throughout for continued growth.
She teaches that in order for us to exceed our limitations, we need to meet the challenges set before us without regard as to whether they are good or bad, right or wrong. They simply are there for us to work through and find solutions that work for us and keep us moving forward. Being alive is having these experiences presented to us in triumphs and defeats. Our greatest challenge I feel is for us not to label our experiences but find the meaning hidden within each one. Each time we psychically travel to the underworld old ways are transformed and our path changes directions to lead us where we are intended to go all along.
"I turn the male to the female,
I am She who adorneth the male for the female;
I am she who adorneth the female for the male."
