In the Beginning

In the beginning, the earth was without form or void, and there was
nothing but the great “Self”, a lone being floating in the vast
emptiness of space. A single pinprick of light silhouetted against a
boundless sea of emptiness. The “Self” floated out in the profusion
of time for untold millennia before it had a thought. One solitary
thought, but a profound one. Self thought “I am”, and as soon as Self
thought “I am” s/he created the concept of “I” and grew afraid. For
countless years, floating in the blackness of space, Self was afraid,
pondering the concept of “I”, but eventually s/he reasoned and thought
“of whom am I afraid, since there is no one but myself?” By this
reasoning fear was eliminated.

No sooner had Self eliminated fear then s/he thought “I wish there were
another!” And s/he was adrift in the emptiness of space brooding about
his/her loneliness, when a thought suddenly struck him/her. Now Self was a
being about the size of a man and woman embracing, and his/her thought
was, since it is only I, I should separate myself into two beings.
And having this thought his/her body began to tremble and quake in the
first orgasm of being. S/he felt his/her body move, and separate. There
was pain and passion, fire and lightening, and screams of joyful
agony. A horrendous crack sounded and a second voice filled the
silence of space. A soft and melodious voice, an angelic and
bewitching voice, the voice of the first woman.

Self looked upon this new creation and realized that s/he had crafted
duality. From the genderless body of Self, s/he had split himself into
two being, one male and one female. And upon looking at his new
creation he fell instantly in love. Seeing her enchanting beauty
profiled against the bleakness of space he was enraptured with her.
And Self’s mate looked upon him with lust in her eyes, and she mounted
him.  And from that first embrace, mankind was born.

Do you believe in God?

Filed under: General Information,Gods and Goddesses,Quotations — ravenbird @ 6:50 pm

Those who believe that they believe in God, but without passion in
their hearts, without anguish in mind, without uncertainty, without
doubt, without an element of despair even in their consolation,
believe in the God idea, not God himself.
~Miguel de Unamuno~

Altar Idea for parents of small children

Filed under: General Information,Womens Mysteries — ravenbird @ 6:21 pm

My friend had a cool idea when her 4 kids were small and grabby — and they were way pressed for space.

She took a shoe box–actually I think hers was a boot box, but same thing, She decorated (read consecrated) the box inside and out, box and lid, and she kept her altar things inside the box. The box stayed out of small children’s hands, it went with her to open rituals or open fields or wherever she needed it to go–it stayed up on a shelf where it could be seen but not messed with until she took it down. And the box itself was an altar when she displayed the items on top of the box during prayer/ritual/ so on.

I always thought that was a great idea. Her kids made altar boxes of their own as well, so it was a family process. As her kids got older, her kids began to take their altar boxes off to college with them and that’s what they used (the ones who still used altars).
