*Reblog*On faith, the gods, and the nature of reality

Those of us who have fairly consistent communication with the gods, in whatever form that takes, can sometimes take for granted our rather astonishing level of interaction with the divine, relying too much on our ability to experience entities that are – for many sincere worshippers – more often than not silent, invisible and mysterious.

*Reblog*On the River and the Flooding

I’ve never experienced, what I would call, real flooding. I’ve seen my local creek go from an inch or two deep, to a raging torrent that could very easily kill me. I’ve watched, with a mix of excitement and dread as smaller rivers around me, like the Serpentine in Surrey(BC, Canada)reached the very top of Their levies. What I have witnessed is all second hand, although as I write this there is a very old memory of being in the general area of Sumas(Washington, USA) and trying to get home through minor flooding. Still, nothing that devastated me directedly. I can totally relate to and share the feeling of horror at how They are caged. My Fraser River is forced into shape, I’ve been to Their source in The Crow’s Nest Pass, put my feet and hands into the waters. There They are not much bigger than my Creek, here near my home They are massive. I ramble though, please read and enjoy.

Hail Poseidon, Lord of the Waters. Hail Himself, Master of the Universal Conduit.
We in Columbia aren’t experiencing the massive flooding that’s hit around the state at a devastating rate that in some places is surpassing the floods of 93, which I’m old enough to remember very clearly. I haven’t been out to see where the Missouri River is at.  I almost can’t bring myself to even think […]

Dear Poseidon, or: I want to reject compassion

My watery Lord is not currently with me but I feel the Thread that Joins us. This beautiful post by Jo resonates deeply, her Poseidon seems very much like mine. 



Dear Poseidon, Compassion has been a cornerstone of o/Our relationship since the very first day w/We met and You held compassion for me. You planted a seed of compassion for others within me, though it would be years and years before that would sprout. Awareness, You stress — take in all sides, view the big […]

Speaking

This is so important and so relevant to my life. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking. I love it.
Working with the dead is rough They brush your mind, with little thought to how raw they feel Their lives spill out upon you without filters, the ones who share the most, open skies raining on your head The Disir and the Väter can be the roughest When They speak, They speak in power It […]
