Hey readers! Another check-in, and I’ve got some questions for you that I could really use responses on…
July is a super busy month for me, religiously. I’ll be headed up to Seattle on the 23rd of this month. Two days before that I am going to have a huge ceremony in my personal practice, and there’s a bunch of goodness to get up to this month religiously and spiritually. At the end of this month, the 31st, I’ll also be celebrating the deification and ascension of the Dierne. I’m working on setting up a virtual shrine space, finalizing some prayers, getting even more intense in my devotional vanity project, and just finishing up a huge cleaning out of my house and restructuring of my shrines. (The cleaning and restructuring fits in with monsoon season – our ‘spring cleaning’.)
So there’s that. A fair amount of what goes on this month isn’t going to be posted publicly, as it will be very private and, I suspect, not relevant to most people.
As for what I will be writing…
I’ve been reading and finishing up a few ‘101’ books to get a better idea of how to structure introductory books when I finally write up an introductory book for the Otherfaith. As such, a few reviews may be on the way. What I’m needing feedback on is what you, as readers, want to see concerning information about the Otherfaith. Are you more interested in theory, or are you more interested in practice?
Theory includes more information about the Four Gods, their related spirits, my discernment and journeying methods, how the Westernlands relates to our world, ethics, how the gods influence our perception of the world and our culture…that sort of thing.
Practice includes prayer, rituals, actual saying and doing. It’s actually doing our devotion rather than just thinking.
I’m interested in what my readers would like to see and find helpful. I mulled it over with my gods and their response was to keenly point out I should ask the people I’m writing for.
As an important note, I will be continuing my series on house spirits, as well as smaller spirits that we can encounter in our daily lives, and how to interact with them. I hope to have the next post in that series up this week. I’ll also be continuing with my series on online practices this month.
Thank you, as always, for reading!
