We had a huge brush fire here on the ranch this Summer.

This photo for me captured the Wildness Within

a Spirit form dancing in the fire.

This spirit form could be seen as the mythological:

FIRE GODDESSES & GODS
Pele, Vesta, Hestia, Brigid, Ho- Masubi, Agni, Hephaestos and Vulcan.

Fire Goddess/God Dance

They are among the most powerful and terrifying of all the deities, these Fire & Solar Beings, full of danger and death, but also warmth and mischief. They hurl lightning bolts, quarrel, furiously create volcanic destruction, but just as furiously create things of delicate beauty and magic. They lick our reflections in a candle-lit mirror and then boil out of volcanos. We have served them around ancient hearths and in temples for thousands of years. They are sacred, dark, living, transcendent light…..

PELE – Hawaiian: Fire Goddess
Pele Goddess of Hawaii’s Volcanos “She-Who-Shapes-The-Sacred-Land”, or the Goddess of a Thousand Names, Pele was a passionate fire goddess who commanded both fear and respect. Pele is both a destructive and creative force.. Pele also controls lightning….

HESTIA – Greek or VESTA – Roman: Fire Goddess
Vesta is the goddess of the sacred fires of the hearth, the heart of spiritual and emotional stability in your home. Her cult goes back to the 7th century BC.
She was known as Vesta in the Roman pantheon.

BRIGID – Ireland (Celtic): Fire Goddess
Some of Brigid’s titles include ‘Fire of Inspiration’, ‘Fire of the Hearth’ and ‘Fire of the Forge’. Brigid is a complex and contradictory fire goddess, a patroness of a range of practical and inspired wisdom.

HO-MASUBI – Japan: Fire God
Although destructive by his very nature, and feared by mortals, the fire god is not evil and does what he can for mankind, providing them with light, warmth, a means of cooking, and the heat for forging weapons and tools. If the people affront him by neglecting his worship, however, he has been known to burn cities to the ground.”

AGNI – India (Hindu) God of Fire
The stories and myths surrounding Agni are fascinating and contradictory. Fire God Agni is worshipped in three forms; fire on earth, lightning and the sun.

HEPHAESTUS – Greek or VULCAN – Roman: God of Fire
Hephaestus is the god of fire and the forge, and the patron god of blacksmiths, craftsmen, artisans, and sculptors. He was known as Vulcan in the Roman pantheon.

By looking into Fire one can sense the Wildness Within in a dramatic form -

In the old days a fire on the prairie is a serious concern.
