I love this quote so much. I think it exemplifies qualities that as polytheists (of all stripes) we are called to develop. I know that I return to this again and again, when I think about the type of person I want to be, in relation to my Gods, my family, my world. What touchstones do you, my readers have as you do this ongoing work of devotional living?

  1. I think you have to try to remember what your grandma told you about holydays, or some home remedies, or even details about planting a flower on a raising Moon (or never cut your hair when Moon is waning)… what she used to do (even she was a Christian) – every little thing counts… and research and find out more about your people’s old traditions and customs. Because there is many centuries long wisdom in there. Despite we’re all different, more likely those traditions came from one source. I think that was Tacitus who mentioned – we all believe in the same Gods, just calling Them by different names.
    I write my prayers as an offerings, and I pray like I stand right by the feet of my God or Goddess… They made Themselves known to me, and I thank Them for that, and for all Their blessings. And I know that I won’t be ignored. They know I’m honest.
    Candles, essence, flowers, home baking or good cognac – whatever feels right at the moment.
