So, I’m actually feeling better finally. Not quite 100%, but better enough that I’m starting to get back into religious practice. Since I’ve been very lax on my new moon observances since about June thanks to a declining health thing, I spent all my break times today tending to my altars and shrines. Now, typically that would wait until the next new moon, but I had let them fall so far out of whack that I’m sure the gods will both understand and appreciate if I go a bit off schedule and make their shrines and altars a bit more… passable.
I’m going to rant for a moment. Well, it will take far more than a moment, but I’m going to say something that has needed to be said for a long time. There will probably be profanity, there will be radical concepts for some pagans to grasp and it might just anger you. Which is fine, because maybe then you are thinking for yourself. I am going to put my foot down on this natural remedy/alternative medicine bullshit pagans cling to like it’s some kind of messiah and say: Stop it. Just, knock it off. If it works for you, great, but stop preaching it as gospel of being pagan.
Things have admittedly been difficult in the third quarter of 2012 and it seems to be carrying over into the fourth quarter. Too many people have died: friends, family, friends of family and the family of friends. I’ve cut some very toxic people out of my life and I thought I was getting better.
