Hellenic (3 Years)

Today marks three years since I decided to become Hellenic. It hasn’t been an easy road but it’s been worth it. I found Hellenism several years before, while I was in MA, and I really loved it. This year, however, I’m hoping to work on getting the books that I didn’t have before and continuing my devotion to the gods. That’s my goal as I move on in my practice.

Delphic Maxims #38: Nothing in Excess

So this is the next to last one for this month and it’s pretty clear, nothing in excess. This will include a ton of things that we might find ourselves buying a lot of. Watching how people go and buy things that they just don’t need, and then later on lose it, makes me really believe the Greeks had a point with this one. Or Apollon had a point in this one.

Wanting things that you don’t need, or buying a ton of them, might sound great but it’s not. In-fact it can cause you problems.

Athena’s Birth (2017)

Tonight is Athena’s birth, which is a time of great celebration. I really didn’t do much for this holiday, due to the fact that I had to work. So I”m going to burn some incense and call it a day. I have to work tomorrow. I do hope that all those that do a more complex ritual will have a good Athena’s birthday.
