Some things don’t respond to salt.

Some things don’t respond to olive oil.

Some things cannot be banished.

Some things don’t care about crosses.

Some things don’t care about sage. 

Some things can be trapped in a mirror. Some things become powerless if they see their reflection. 

Some things don’t care about Holy Water.

Some things don’t give a fuck about Latin. 

Some things only respond to Latin.

Some things only respond to Hebrew.

And a circle won’t hold anything you call up. Some things are more powerful than your circles. And not everything has to be or can be called into a circle. A circle won’t fix everything and it won’t always stop the boogeyman.

"I shall invoke Hecate in her Acheron depths, and by scale of dragon, eye of newt, boiled in the blood of murdering ministers and Clytemnestra’s gall, cast a great curse which shall fly directly on a dark wind and take up immediate residence in his body, daily chewing on his flesh, nightly gnawing on his bones, until many months from now, moments before the final spark of self-awareness expires, he will have witnessed the total dismemberment and consumption of every limb and organ. So written, so done. This curse is cast. Fuit Ilium."

Why should I have to sit through a Christian prayer in school? I wouldn’t stand in front of you and draw a circle; I don’t see how what you’re doing is any different. You are forcing your beliefs on a minority, you are repressing those people who do not follow your own religion. If you really must have a time for spritual reflection, have five minutes of silence; the athiests can comtemplate the big bang, you can say your prayers to yourself, and I will not feel isolated and uncomfortable

Pagans. Wiccans. Unfollow me if you must….

truthnatureandbeauty:

[This has been many weeks in the making]

I know many of my followers became so because of my focus on Celtic religion: I am a Buddhist - who is fiercely proud of my ancestors in the Celtic world - but I cannot say that I share much of their beliefs. I have come to realize I have been trying to force a square peg into a round hole.

I will not blame anyone for unfollowing me. For many years I have been studying Buddhism. It was only in the last year or so that I became intensely interested in my Celtic religious roots. I was always proud of my Celtic heritage, and being a student of archaeology and history I will never stop being interested in Celtic history.

I believe that what most people think of as “gods” are/were simply beings that are more advanced than us. Wiser. More evolved. But they are beings nonetheless.

I also believe that all beings, including the “gods,” are subject to karma and constant reincarnation. And that any beings, no matter how low they me seem today, can become a “god” in the future. Some say it is only a matter of time before every living creature (in existence) will one day become Buddhas.

No matter what I do I always go back to the teachings of Buddha. I now know that I was trying hard to retrofit my ancient ancestors’ beliefs into my own.

The focus of this blog will not change much. The primary focus will still be nature, animals, wild places… Most people will probably not notice any change at all. You’ll see more about Buddhism, but probably not much on Celtic/pagan religions… NOT because I suddenly “do not like” them, but because I have realized I was making myself be something I am not.

I would not unfollow you simply because of your beliefs. I followed you in the first place because I loved your posts. And hey, I may be Pagan, but I do have a lot of Buddhist beliefs as well! Good luck on your path! One must always follow the path that is right for them instead of doing as others wish and I am glad that you have decided to do so. I look forward to more of your posts!

tuath-spiorad:

Lugh shares some characteristics with the Dagda, a larger-than-life figure prominent in myths of the Tuatha dé Danann. Like Lugh, he is powerful and omnicompetent. Yet he is often represented as a rather comic figure whose short tunic fails to cover his buttocks, and whose huge club has to be carried on wheels. He has great magical powers, and he possesses a harp which comes to him when he calls, and a cauldron of abundance which restores dead warriors to life (but without powers of speech, perhaps in case they say too much about the afterlife)
