Sojourn: A Woman In Exile
I bought and read this book and re-tread this book many years ago. Passages that I underlined, I later hightlighted, checked and astericked And, most of the modern insights and leading voices for the 21st Century Isiakoi have been that of our sister-priestesses. In Sister Ellis's writings is a deepening of the inital tastes we are blessed with in the works of deRegula, Reedd and Forrest The Mysteries of Isis, Invocation of the Gods and Isis Magic, respectively ; and there is more 'meat' to the bones than that which we find in the esoterics of Dion Fortune novels and in the scholarchip of R.

E Witt Isis in the Ancient World. For me, and especially so of striving to cultivate the hard alchemy of Black Isis in my heart, I have been often moved to tears with the reading. Anyway, I can not recommend this book enough. It is well worth the reading and the studying whether or not you are modern Isiakoi. I love this book,but than again I love all the author's books. I didn't know what to expect from this book though.
Since it was a journal type of book,I thought I might not like it. She is a very Soul-Full person Iknow that's not how it's spelled,but the author is a very spiritual person and that shines through in this book I had to re-read chapter 9 ,Ab: Desire is life manifestly unfolding. If we fail to acknowledge our deep desires,we remain empty inside and vulnerable to the manipulations of those who would seduce us and feed upon our desire nature. We buy goods we don't need,thinking things will supply what we lack in the world. We wind up having affairs thinking that will satisfy our love nature.
We rush blindly from this business deal to that,thinking that money and prestige will give us back the power we know we lack. All our addictions-eating disorders,alcoholism,smoking,overt sexuality,violence- are evidence of the desire nature out of control because the heart has tried to tell us what it wants,and we have not paid attention. What matters is what is at hand at the moment In hotep peace we contemplate our lives and concentrate our energies on the true desires of the heart aligned with God,rather than chasing after this or that fleeting thought I got some deep insights into the egyptian myths which can be confusing but she explains their meaning very simply and you have an "Aha" moment and know what they meant by that myth.
I highly recommend this book,if you are a deep thinker like Ellis. This book is a wonderful blend. She not only lets you peek inside her personal spiritual journey and sojourns to Egypt, but also helps you relate and comprehend the sometimes confusing Egyptian pantheon. She helps you identify with not only Egyptian religion, but gives clues to how Christianity and Wicca are connected as well.
It is a great tale that encourages the reader to explore for themself and find their own spiritual path.

The Torah is a book that loves its defined roles. That is to say, every character in the Torah has its archetype and typically sticks to it.
The closest we get is the journey of the Israelites as a nation. It's possible to argue that theirs is a story of transition, learning, and growth, but in the context of the traditional interpretation, I would argue that their presence is less about the story and more about the individual moments that make up the story. There's a familiar refrain in throughout the Hebrew Bible: God tells the Israelites to do or not do something specific.

The Israelites comply, they are rewarded with proper rain, abundant crops, food, and safety. Then they get complacent, and they start diverging from God's directions. In turn, God warns, then punishes, and then forgives, as the cycle continues. In traditional interpretation, I think these are the moments that are the main focus.
It is in that spirit that I think the verses prohibiting certain sexual relationships in Kedoshim derive their greatest power.
