“Having a body that is like a musical instrument, open enough to be able to resonate, literally resonate with what is coming both from the inside and from the outside, so that one is able to surrender to powers greater than oneself.” (Marion Woodman)

Jacheongbi (자청비) is a Korean earth goddess who is also the goddess of love. She disguises herself as a young man in order to pursue higher education in the company of a young god for whom she has an attraction... The implication is that her desire for education & opportunity is equal to that for her young god, & she will simply do whatever is needed to achieve her goals...

GANYMEDES was a handsome, young Trojan prince who was carried off to heaven by Zeus, or his eagle, to be the god’s lover and cup-bearer of the gods. Ganymedes was frequently represented as the god of homosexual love, and as such appears as a playmate of the love-gods Eros (Love) and Hymenaios (Marital Love). The boy’s name was derived from the Greek words ganumai “gladdening” and mêdon or medeôn, “prince” or “genitals.” The name may have been formed to contain a deliberate double-meaning.
