She states openly in the Preface, "I speak and have always spoken in a lesbian voice; the feminism came much later than the lesbianism, signs of which were apparent in me by age four... My primary communities of accountability are the lesgay community and the feminist and womanist communities and, to one degree or another, liberation communities everywhere."
She writes, "The thesis of this book is that spiritual beings who are having human experiences---at least those with activist temperaments---demonstrate love for their ultimate and eternal context by enacting tender concern for the penultimate and the apparently temporary. In other words, sensuous spirituality breeds concern for the well-being of the people and all the other creatures who are here on this planet at this time, and for the planet itself."
She states, "My name for this Cosmic Energy or Consciousness is God. I dislike the word Goddess because in our social context that word implies the presence of a second All-Encompassing Being---surely a contradiction in terms and logic."
She concludes by recommending "following the bliss of our eternal being, of experiencing complete integrity at every moment, of being in constant touch with God's Self deep within our centered Self. Yet this is the discipleship our Selfhood seeks, and this is the experience that fulfills the heights and depths of our humanity. This is heaven on earth. And perfect freedom."
