Thunder: Perfect Mind
In 1945 along the banks for the Nile, bound in papyrus notebooks were found sealed in earthenware jars. In one collection were the words to Thunder: Perfect Mind. In 1991, reading Elaine Pagels Gnostic Gospels, on page 17 of the introduction, I read a fragment of Thunder: Perfect Mind. The words seized my attention in their acknowledgment of the paradox and contradictions.
The poetry and power of Thunder: Perfect Mind kept calling to me. I meditated on the text in the morning when I arose, and in the evening before I went to sleep. Over 7 years, as I played my harp, the words became music that sang out of me. When I knew the music by heart, I committed it to paper. Thunder: Perfect Mind called to me, opening a doorway to womens’ spirit from over 2000 years ago, and I celebrate it now in song.
