In a late version of the Medusa myth, related by the Roman poet Ovid (Metamorphoses 4.770) Medusa was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, "the jealous aspiration of many suitors," but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena's temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa's beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.

Give up defining yourself - to yourself or to others. You won't die. You will come to life. And don't be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it's their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don't be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are --Eckhart Tolle❤️☀️

Athena is the Greek goddess of wisdom and strategical war. She is the daughter of Zeus & Metis. Most people claim her to be motherless because, due to a prophecy, Zeus ate Metis and thus Athena was born from his forehead, motherless. Athena is well known for her role in the Medusa myth. Medusa was a beautiful woman who was raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple. For disgracing her temple, Athena turned Medusa into a hideous monster. Athena_by_Stregatto10.jpg (900×1290)
