Activating The Dark Goddess: Kali And The Santa Clarita Diet

After watching the first season of the Netflix series The Santa Clarita Diet a few years ago, one thing immediately popped into mind: Kali.

An ancient, female energy. The Dark Goddess. The anima writ large, over the entire planet. It’s something that goes beyond matriarchy vs. patriarchy and all that jazz. We are talking about a primal force here, deeply keyed-in with nature and the planet. And we’re talking about a primal force that gives very little shits about the ideological arguments and hair-splitting we have over the Internet. We’re talking a force that will smash a mountain into an iceberg. Continue reading “Activating The Dark Goddess: Kali And The Santa Clarita Diet”

“On the plane of the real world as understood by the media and the public at large, Manson was an insignificant crook compared to Nixon, the President of the United States, undeserving of the President’s attention or comment; but on another plane, Manson and Nixon were warring black magicians, fighting over airtime and the fifteen-second sound bite.”

I’ll admit—after I watched the first couple of episodes of NBC’s The Good Place several years ago, I thought they were *OK*…but felt no big commitment to keep following the series. Then I encountered recommendations to see the last episode of the 1st season—the unexpected ending of which, I was informed, CHANGED EVERYTHING.

Spoilers ahead, naturally!
