Well, it’s Friday. Payday.
Heard from DarkOwl a couple days ago, he’s apparently just going back to work with his hurt back, so he’s burried up with work. Said I wasn’t going to bother him unless I didn’t hear from him for 2 weeks.
I passed the report. Said that while the continuity was a bit sparce (I was writing it on the fly while doing about 50 other things), the content was top notch. If I can find it I’ll post it here.
But what’s holding me up now is the ritual. One of the things that we are supposed to do is rituals whenever possible. So, I have never done a ritual with the ODU, and now I need to. It will be interesting as I’m not a huge fan of doing rituals in general, not because of anything bad, just that I don’t see a need to perform the actions when I’m there anyhow most of the time. I don’t need a ceremony to connect me with the Gods, I hear Them talking to me all the time anyhow. Oh well, I’ll be a good boy.
See, it’s important for a person who is learning to do what is required. It doesn’t matter that I actually know what the ritual entails and that I have done multiple rituals in the past, if I don’t do the rituals in the manner specified, then I won’t be able to understand later information that I may not know in the correct context. So, I do the ritual.
For this ritual I have come up with a set of Ogham Sticks that have the runes carved on them (did that last night) because part of the ritual is doing a divination to see what’s coming up.
I know the theme of my ritual, it’s “Let me introduce myself to the Gods”. It’s not to celebrate anything (although I should do it to celebrate Beltane) and I don’t need to consecrate anything, so this is me coming to the House of the Gods and bringing a housewarming gift. LOL
Soon as I get a photo of the runesticks, I’ll post them. I wonder if this will count when I’m required to make a set of Ogham runes later when I’m actually studying them. 😉
