“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Isaac Asimov

I had a dream last night --
you took my hand and said to me:
Rise.

Descend Summer King, Lord of Day
Midsummer is past
And the veil beckons.
Ascend Winter King, Lord of Night
Midwinter draws nigh
Take up thy spear.

of a memory of a dream
within a dream of you

Hail to Thee, All-Father
Guardian at the Gate.
I come before Thee
armed with oak and steel.
I come bearing sweet perfumes,
Bread and wine for sacrifice.
Wisdom is yours, Sky-Father,
Strength is yours, Thunderer,
Splendor is yours, Bolt-Thrower.
We have called Thee by many names:
Odin, Indra, Zeus;
You are the All-Father:
Hunter, Protector, Lord.
I invoke Thee, All-Father,
That I might share in Thy Wisdom;
I invoke Thee, All-Father,
That I might partake of Thy Strength;
I invoke Thee, All-Father,
That I might witness Thy Splendor.
Thee, Thee, I invoke, All-Father;
I am Become Thee.

Gentle Hermes, most kind,
friend of man and woman,
guide to Orpheus and Eurydice
and protector of Persephone;

Tuesday, September 13, 2016 Chariot/Evilded777 Magical Diary 600

Io, Hermes!
Sacred Son or Arcadia,
Father to Pan and lover
of Krokos,
Hermes Pompaios
be my guide in all things.

Fill my heart
with glad tidings
and my steps with joy;
enliven my tongue,
hone my wit:
Hermes Dotor Eaton,
smile upon me and mine.

Io, Hermes!
Dolios,
curious monotheism
of a generation,
in Your darkest heart
You could not condone
these perpetrations
in Your Name.
Hermes Epikthonis,
pray for us all.

The obligation is complete.

I will praise Thee, O God, in the sight of Thy Angels.

O Mary Immaculate, great Queen of Heaven and earth and our gentle advocate, we beg Thee to intercede for us. Pray God to send St. Michael and the holy Angels to ward off all the obstacles contrary to the reign of the Sacred Heart in our souls, our families, our country and in the whole world.

I recognize that I am taking on some serious flavor from Rune Soup at the moment, but I don't think I can be accused of having taken on a guru. But if it starts to seem that way, please be sure to let me know to find my own rabbit hole, quick.

Last night I received a message via Facebook from a person I have known since middle school. We've had some pretty public disagreements in the past, and frankly I saw this coming: she un-friended me because in her words "I can not be friends with someone who is an enemy of God."

My first thought was that I had gotten an upgrade.

There are those who would have you believe that God hates you because you are gay; or, just as offensively, not because you are gay but because you act on those impulses. This is bullshit, plain and simple. God does not hate you.

Saturday, April 09, 2016 Chariot/Evilded777 Chariot's Rant 562

I've been talking to god lately. I told Her that I was sorry that I didn't do it as often as I once did, but that I wasn't one of those people who only do it when they want something (even though this was one of those times). And I told Her that I missed Her in my life; that those times when I needed Her and I felt Her wings wrapped about me in comfort represented all the faith that I would ever need.

After a very little while, She told me that She knew I wasn't one of those people who only called Her Name when I wanted something. And She wondered why I said I missed Her in my life. Comfort in times of trial was not Her only gift. Was not the love I felt in my heart also Her Gift?

She said that the love I felt was not only Her gift, but a song in honor of Her Name. And that everything I did with that love in my heart was a ritual to Her: every verse I wrote, every smile upon my face, every act of devotion, each embrace and every kiss, every caress in the dark.

So I promised Her that I would tend that sacred flame of love in my heart, that I would remember that She was with me in times of trial and of joy, and even unto death.
