Generally, Iâ€™ve been keeping pagan workings on 78 Images but other pagan things get discussed hereâ€¦while permanent articles
I feel the need to mention that all my blogs except Particles has a Feed Burner feedâ€¦however you can always just read my Livejournal to which all my blog posts
So me as a paganâ€¦Iâ€™ve got a definite Norse bent. Thatâ€™s just from my interests as a child. It wasnâ€™t until I was halfway through college that I had brushings with Asatru which came in the form of Wandisâ€¦a CUUPS member and later a leader in the PSA. I had heard of Asatru but I had never witnessed it. In my mind she remains the pinnacle of Asatru. She might disagree with me, but as I meet other Asatru now I find my mind wandering back to her and thinking that others havenâ€™t measured up.
Now Iâ€™m not Asatru. I think I can live with the Heathen labelâ€¦along with the Witch and Pagan one I wear. Still, I have my beliefs which include a heavy dose of Northern Paganism. This is includes Celtic beliefs.
Ancestry wise the majority comes from Northern Europe and the British Isles. Thereâ€™s a little of that Baltic in there perhaps some NA
Itâ€™s not that Iâ€™m questioning my faith. Iâ€™m not. Iâ€™m just having a sort of epiphany. Iâ€™m reading these things, these very Asatru things and finding myself nodding my head in agreement. Perhaps itâ€™s my Liberal Conservative leanings, or that Iâ€™m a Republican even though I vote Democratic or independent 98% of the time. No thatâ€™s not rightâ€¦I donâ€™t know what it is. My practices and beliefs are mineâ€¦but I agree.
Iâ€™ve taken the time to know my history, my beliefs and my surroundingsâ€¦what bothers me is that others donâ€™t. Some canâ€™tâ€¦not completelyâ€¦but a little is always there.
This brings me back to the DaVinci Code. I keep hearing pagans say that gives us good press? How so really? Pagans arenâ€™t doing the things that happen in that bookâ€¦we arenâ€™t hold the secrets to other religions. Well there is that whole Great Rite thing
That was rambling. At least the mead is still bubbling.
Aia is doing better. Weâ€™ve narrowed down the bully. Now we just have to watch him.
