Sometimes we feel big, bigger than those around us. When we buy into the voice inside us that says we are better than other people, we’re superior, we’re inherently more valued, we lose so much. We lose chances to learn, we lose the ability to listen to others. We also lose some of our awareness and can step on the toes of those around us, and if we’re too lost in the arrogance spiral, we might not even care. Read more

We’ve met the gods – but what is their religion? In this post we’ll be exploring what the Otherfaith is and where it comes from. Read more

We can take from this card that we should enjoy these moments of calm and harmony. They will feed us during the times of struggle and stress. Read more

What’s the point of writing about this faith anyway? Because someone — even many someones — might need it. Read more

[This post was meant to go up yesterday, but life and school got in the way.] I’m restarting my posts on the Otherfaith, and each Wednesday I’ll be posting basic information about the gods, spirits, daily practices, and other important bits of the faith. Every Friday (maybe this Saturday, if my word processor is still down) I’ll post more freeform musings on various topics concerning the Otherfaith. Other days are open for other rants, though I’m hoping to produce less… Read more

Discernment – the ability to judge well or, in religious contexts, understand spiritual progress – is vital to any thriving, stable religious community or practice. Without it, we can become lost, adrift, far from our gods, our spirits, and our people. We can lose ourselves. We can mistake our own voice for the voices of the gods. Read more

I made a goal to write mostly about the Otherfaith this year, instead of focusing on drama in the many Pagan communities I interact with. This has been tough (though I consider my last post a very important one, and I’ve touched on similar issues as they relate to the Otherfaith before), but this commitment to focusing on the faith has been good. I haven’t been able to write a lot of completed posts, but I have had more opportunities… Read more

As a sort of challenge and New Year’s wish/resolution wish, I would love to see us, both online and off, reduce and eliminate our use of ableist language. Read more

The first day of the New Year – in the Otherfaith, today is the day when the gods split from their shared residence and get to work again. And so it is for me. The week of Reunion was as much of a religious break as I could give myself. Now, we start again. 2013 was an intense year for me. I started blogging here at Patheos. I met a lot of people who have helped shape me and influenced… Read more
