Distractions, Distractions…

After only four days of “preparation,” I’m finding it difficult to maintain an intensely spiritual mindset. I seem to be able to handle normal day-to-day distractions, but let something unusual (or unusually irritating) pop up and concentration becomes nearly impossible.

It’s times like this that make me think I should abandon Paganism and become a Buddhist. But somehow I think I’d have the same problems.

I spent some extra time in meditation last night, but all I got on the topic of fertility were images of rabbits and black soil.

Tonight’s meditation will be on the goddess Ostara.

About John Beckett

I grew up in Tennessee with the woods right outside my back door. Wandering through them gave me a sense of connection to Nature and to a certain Forest God. I’m a Druid graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, the Coordinating Officer of the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans and a former Vice President of CUUPS Continental. I’ve been writing, speaking, teaching, and leading public rituals for the past eleven years. I live in the Dallas – Fort Worth area and I earn my keep as an engineer.
