Take a Knee
We have plenty of sources from Tacitus on down attesting to the piety of our ancestors. Modern Heathens too often choose to ignore that, refusing out of their own ignorance and fucking human arrogance not to bow before our Gods. Let me tell you something: when certain Gods are present, you WILL kneel. Your body will do it as a matter of course, having more sense than you. It is right and proper to bow and prostrate before the Holy Powers. Anyone who thinks they’re too good to bow before the Powers should go back to larping and leave our traditions alone.
I’m probably about to get the internet trolls and deniers attacking me in an online community where I recently responded to someone else’s posts where they said in angry response to some asshole: “Even my Gods don’t ask me to kneel. Bye.”
The idea there is no kneeling or similar practices to our Gods is erroneous, there’s references abounding to it in the lore.
The real question is how common it was, or if such practices were unique to specific cultic worship, specific deities, specific celebrations or observances?
