Being a Public Hellenist

One of the things that I believe in is not leaving your religion at home. Like with Christians I bring my practice, and beliefs, with me. I pray to the gods daily and I thank them for what I have. I just can’t leave it at home. People that don’t believe in the gods can’t understand, and even sneer, at the fact that anyone would bring their religion out of the home and even demand that they keep it at home.

I don’t understand that and I never will. This is my path and being public is how I do things.

Asklepia (2018)

When the sun goes down I will be celebrating Asklepia. Asklepias, the son of Apollon, was a very important deity due to his healing powers. In fact his healing temple was taken over by Christians and rededicated to a saint, can’t remember which one. This shows how popular he was and how much he was loved.

Delphic Maxims#60: Be Jealous of No One

I’m finally getting back into doing my Delphic Maxims. This one is really simple to understand, but one that many people fail to understand or do. Jealously is, and has always been, a bad thing. It makes people do stupid things and it causes them to break other laws or just look really stupid. When my brother became manager and started to make more money, I wasn’t jealous of him.

He earned that and that’s what counted. When I see people jealous of what others have I really shake my head. You have no clue what kind of problems that that person is having that has what your jealous of. Don’t think that they’re life is rosy and good. Jealously is never a good feeling to have and it can lead to unwise decisions.

Late Post: Elaphebolia (2018)

Last night I celebrated Elaphebolia, which honors Artemis. Hellenion had a short ritual that I found very easy to do. Some of the words were a bit hard to pronounce, but I managed it. I believe that Artemis knew what I was getting at. Didn’t have wine, which I really need to get, but I gave her what I had. Sorry for no photo but I did enjoy myself and it made me feel reconnected to my path.

I hope that your Elaphebolia was a good one as well.

No Libation Month Posted and Package Arrived From Hellenion

Last Saturday was the Libations to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. I didn’t post mine because I was just so dead tired from working and I just didn’t have the energy. On another note, I got my package from Hellenion and I’m a member until September 5, when I have to renew. Haven’t had a chance to check it all out, but I’m going to do that on Sunday.

On another note, following the Hellenion calendar, I honored Hecate. Looking forward to the new month.
