Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.

Good ideas and true innovation

For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.

❝Paganism is optimistic…❞

Paganism is that view of life which finds the highest goal of human existence in the healthy and harmonious and joyous development of existing human faculties. Very different is the Christian ideal. Paganism is optimistic with regard to unaided human nature, whereas Christianity is the religion of the broken heart.

❝That's beyond our comprehension❞

I think godmasks are representations and gateways to Divinity, not actually Divinity. Divinity itself (thisself? hisself? herself? theirself? thatself?), well, that's beyond our comprehension. It would be like us trying to explain the MetLife Company to an ant. First you have to teach them ideas, then language, then money, and so on.

Is it just a conceit that the Divine exists? Possibly. I'd like to think that while the godmask is influenced by human worship and expectation, the Divine behind the godmask is real and something terrifyingly amazing and unbound by human limits.

Born with a spark of the Divine

We humans were born with a spark of the Divine. We spend our lives trying to pass that on.

Sometimes we succeed.

We’ll look at the Genesis story (which has nothing to do with Peter Gabriel or Phil Collins), a Mayan creation tale, a Kono story of the beginning, and we’ll even look at the Big Bang.”
