    Re: can someone please give me advice

    Help her to bring the earth up, or the thunder down.

    Or..if you prefer...buy her flowers, or join some cause that she finds important. Make a big deal of it, make a big deal of her, and of you,...

    Re: Can the soul die?

    The idea of feeding souls, or of sustaining souls..particularly the souls of family, is ubiquitous to human culture and belief. Not just in the past, but in the present as well. That's what people...

    Re: Riots in response to George Floyd's Murder

    I think that the incompetence of the would-be dictator helps a bit too.

    The sheer stupidity of evil has probably saved humanity from more misery than all intentional acts of good combined.

    Re: Life Cycle Ritual?

    The celebration of a birthdays is, itself, a ritual. I mention this in order to demystify ritual, to remind us that ritual does not have to be imposing or a chore to construct. Particularly since...

    Re: Negative people

    They keep us grounded. Call it the minority report for hopeless optimists like myself.

    I've got a RayJay analyst sleeping on my couch that saved me more than my entire savings. He basically...
  7. Re: Bullied by a entity I thought was a deity please offer love and support don't jud

    The comparison goes a fair bit deeper than any comment on thor and zues. FWIW, romans identified the celtic god as mercury - a strange synthesis. Obviously we can't know the exact boundary of...
  8. Re: Bullied by a entity I thought was a deity please offer love and support don't jud

    I suppose that depends on the cultural context. Baldur or Balor?

    Loki can be viewed as the norse (and later christianized norse) view of the celtic god Lugh. Lugh is a hero, imbued with a whole...

    Re: What is wrong with Social Security?

    I think that frustrations like those are intentional obstacles put in place by a nihilistic death cult, lol. A consequence of letting people who don't believe in government write it's regulations. ...

    Medicaid and medicare don't necessarily cover anything. They're not broad programs like that, they're means tested assistance.

    Yeah, it was a thing. I went to one. Get it done and over with. Parents are short on time and their schedules are tight, lol.

    Swords are constructed as tools for us to hold and apprehend as such, as you put it OP, feeling like an extension. Have you ever considered joining the armed forces? Not much left in the way of...

    Re: Called to the sword?

    Psychological content deserves a spot. Do you want a physical sword in your hand, or are you referring to what swords represent, to you? Same with a fight, or with combat.

    Sure, I do think a pagan revival would, by definition, involve a greater awareness and acknowledgement of nature. Whether that would make nature a pope, IDK. I don't think so, but I don't know what...
