Daily Happenings: 3/22 – 3/28

March 29, 2015

Just a reminder…my journal blogs are mostly for me and the few people that truly want to know what I do on a daily basis.  Read or ignore as you please.  Still trying to find a steady rhythm on my daily devotional (DD) practice.  Right now I do a little something as it strikes me, no formal ritual.  Also been doing short meditations in the evenings occasionally.  Prayers, as always, before bed unless I’m ill.  Warning:  may contain rants…rants by definition are not based on logic and are solely for the purpose of clearing headspace so that I can address things in a more positive fashion.

Unpacking Our Monotheistic Baggage

March 20, 2015

Aj / Melia:

A lot of great points, the best one, IMO, is “What it comes down to is that lore, no matter what religion it’s from, was written by human hands, with human concerns, human agendas, and human fallibility. So to rely on the lore, without taking into account the culture, time period, and political viewpoints of the author, is not only foolish, but it’s an attitude that has been used throughout history to justify a laundry list of atrocities. “

God-by-Monty-Python

The intolerance of narrow monotheism is written in letters of blood across the history of man from the time when first the tribes of Israel burst into the land of Canaan. The worshipers of the one jealous God are egged on to aggressive wars against people of alien cults. They invoke divine sanction for the cruelties inflicted on the conquered. The spirit of old Israel is inherited by Christianity and Islam, and it might not be unreasonable to suggest that it would have been better for Western civilization if Greece had molded it on this question rather than Palestine.    – Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan

We are a new movement.  Despite claims of ancient lineages and unbroken traditions, the Pagan movement is in its infancy.   Most of us that fall under the problematic umbrella of Pagan are first generation pagans, coming to this collection of paths from a variety of faiths and beliefs…

Feather Files: stories

March 18, 2015

I love to tell stories.  I love to listen to stories. I like to learn trivia and other non-fictiony type stuff because there is always a story involved…and what I learn I can add to stories.  I had this phrase–it almost seems like a quote but I have no idea who to attribute it to–pop into my head this morning.  And did the whole circling around, over and over, so I share it with you here.

Life is a story…what does yours tell?

Conversations in a library: Girls are bad luck

March 11, 2015
tags:

So recently I’ve started working the after-school club at work.  Last week’s theme was scurvy pirates.  While discussing who made flags, I mentioned that sailors considered women bad luck on board ship.

A little while later, a young boy yelled “girls are bad luck” during one of the games.

I , in full pirate costume (and yes I looked awesome), stood over him and said “I am not bad luck.  I am female and NOT bad luck.”

The child blinks at me and says “Well, ok then.”

Stopping bad habits, one child at a time.

Bizarre morning occurrence

March 9, 2015

So I’m not a morning person and suffer way too often with bouts of insomnia.  Since the start of the full moon, I haven’t been sleeping well.  Throw in the fucking time change and I’m hosed.   Stumbled around this morning getting my son ready for school then went back to bed.  After my husband took the child to school, he joined me ’cause the lucky stiff doesn’t have to press a time clock.

Any way about 10:20, I found myself suddenly sitting up right.  I’m bewildered, my husband is bewildered.  He asks me if I’m OK.  I slowly tell him that I gotta get woke up so that I can get ready for work.  I then ask him if coffee is ready.  He says no but I can go make it.  So he gets up.

I go down to the bathroom and I’m sitting on the toilet, wondering why I’m up when I don’t really have to start getting ready for work until 11 at the earliest and why it was such a panic.  I then find a memory from early last week playing in my head…shit.  I have to go into work an hour early today and tomorrow.  I hadn’t remembered this all weekend or even towards the end of the week. I had completely forgotten about it.

Make of it what you will but I think my guides were looking at for me this morning.  Blessing and honor to them.
