Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

NeoNotes — A long hard look

If it works for you and challenges you to be a better person, more power to you. It is not my place to question that, it's between you and the Divine.

Next step

The next step depends on the focus of your faith and your choices. It's not enough to be just pagan.

More personal, pagan

I've found a more personal, pagan kind of religion to satisfy the spiritual side of things.

“As a pagan…”

As a pagan, I've found that 99% of my practices and worshiping consists of just going outside, sitting still, shutting up, and listening.

NeoNotes — Judaism

Pardon, but Judaism wasn't the original monotheism. Akhenaton introduced Atenism in Egypt, which may have influenced the development of Semitic polytheism into monotheistic Judaism.

Yes, sometimes you can taste the Moonlight in the predawn. It's full of promise and hope and wonder, with the ever so slight tartness of regret.

I am pagan

It started with a little tweaking and I got carried away.

I spent WAY too much time yesterday on this site.

The first big difference is the site header. I was never really happy with the background image of bubbles, so it’s gone. That meant the logo banner needed to be repositioned. While I was at it I wanted to make the title fonts a little more fun. Then I needed to clean up the sidebar.

I wanted to highlight the site slogan.

And so on.

The one thing I haven’t done that I really wanted was to make the site logo a clickable link. It’s not been for lack of trying. It works now.

Enjoy.

Properly

I don't want to have anything to do with the spectacle. Come Monday morning, I have to look my neighbors in the eye.

I'm more interested in being a good human and being a decent neighbor than being a good Pagan, especially a good Public Pagan that supports all the Proper Causes.

Nutcases

Modern American pagans are especially bad, we tend to celebrate some of our worse nutcases as gifts from the gods.

Everyone would like to behave like a pagan, with everyone else behaving like a Christian.

Better human

Go tell three really dirty jokes. Share a piece of fruit with someone you can't stand. Cuddle with someone you care deeply about. Leave the place a little nicer than when you found it. And greet the sun when it wakes up.

No, that isn't all that there is to be a Pagan, it's just a taste of how to be a better human.

Really real pagan

According to some members of the Big Three monotheisms, it's a smear word. Pagans worship multiple gods and haven't evolved enough to worship the One True God®. Of course, they're busy arguing over which One True God® and if this One is an aspect of that One and if this other can be Three-In-One. Maybe a monotheist answer isn't the best one.

Riding the Music Part II

I got an email asking why I didn't include Pagan music. Long story short, I think we need to look for connections beyond things that are just "Pagan" or Pagan related. There is meaning and life all around us, we do not need to shut ourselves off from it just because it didn't come from an approved source.
