Please see the drop down menus under the heading of this blog for information about Roman Polytheism. Note that almost everything on this website has been repurposed from the blog neo polytheist of which I am also the author.
2018 was a very busy year for me and so I have spent very little time on the internet compared to previous years. Even so, I did manage to write a couple of posts:
I do intend to do some Roman oriented posts this year, but the truth is that I generally put quite a lot of time into writing my posts (with the initial research taking up the most significant amount of time), and I’m not sure when the next decent block of time I have to do this will be. The other side of this is the personal sense of spiritual pilgrimage that I undertake when I write. To write something I have to want to undertake an internal pilgrimage regarding what I am researching and writing about. I have been moving away from the notion of Gods being like super-charged mates who can help you achieve your goals, and tend to suspect that for the most part the Gods are not nearly so interested in the personal lives of we billions of human beings. I don’t deny the existence of the Gods, nor their intervention in human affairs, nor do I deny the possibility that some of us have a fated role to play in affairs of cosmic significance (things in which the Gods are more likely to take an interest). I embrace my fate, whatever it may be, regardless of the pain and difficulties that will no doubt arise. What I am less sure of is the value of worship and / or the best way to do it.
