The Vernal Equinox

Today is our Grove's Vernal Equinox ritual... Jack won't be here for it, and I find myself with the (usual) pre-ritual jitters/apprehension that makes me wonder "remind me again why I do this?"

As this will be an Earth Mother ritual, and She is my Matron, I should be more excited, but it's hard to be...

perhaps the mundane (mundis?) things are taking over (over and above EQ? hard to imagine!) Grove member issues, lack of major interest on their part... etc. etc. etc....
We'll just play it as it lays, as always. Viva Spring!

Current Mood: bemused
Current Music: Paul Winter - Canyon

dont get all wound up, its probably like stage fright, even famous singers and actors will still get stage fright, just relax and you will do great!!

Ya ... well... kinda... (g)

It is and it isn't...

I love doing the rituals, and they go great and all... (at least I think so(g)) but they tend to be times when I have to confront my relationship with my Grove, ADF, etc. etc. etc. Kinda reality check thing, and that's confrontational and something I tend to avoid. /sigh.

Thanks for the encouraging words... :)

The Nature of Ritual

As you and I both know, there are many ways to approach ritual. Public rituals I've been involved with have gone from good to awful, just like the private rituals of us Solitaires. I'm always amazed that some people expect it to "happen" for them - as if someone else can call the Spirits and make this religious thing happen for them. As long as you feel it inside you, my dear, it's a success and worthwhile. You can't be and do everything for every person - if their interest wains, they lose out on a beautiful celebration of life and renewal.

Brig will bring you good things, I'm sure!

welcome to Live Journal, Chris.

thanks!

Man, it's just one handsome man after another... (g)
