of rings and decisions (English version) | Geschichten einer urbanen Priesterin

My Gods.  This.  So very much this.  How. Perfect.  I wish you the best in your decision, Sister!

“Apollo is the blackest darkness and the most glaring light in one entity. He is death and destruction and healing and enlightenment. He is madness and perfection. He is order, law, repeal of the contradictions, He is harmony. He is the point in between … the borderline between all opposites. He is the most perfect paradox in my entire existence and I adore Him more than anything else.

He is art, sound, inspiration, character, image, metaphor. His imperfection makes Him perfect. He suffers, He loves, He is obsessive, He is impulsive, He is jealous and engrossing, He is hot-tempered. He is wise and childish and charming and funny. He is calculated and He plays poker very high. He is arrogant and condescending and overestimates himself sometimes. He is very dominant.

But if He loves, He can submit to your feet and gives you EVERYTHING. Love is His greatest weakness and strength in one. He is a protector and avenger. When it comes to people who are important to Him, He messes with the highest powers and risks honor and status, only out of love. He knows what it means to lose and to suffer. He knows great pain and this makes Him dangerous and strong, because He knows exactly WHERE it really hurts. He felt this pain before. You can be sure that His arrow hits you at exactly this point. I will never sugarcoat His dark sides. Never. They are the reason why I love Him.”

  1. I leave a comment mainly related to your aug. 4th post. First of all, I appreciate your committment as Cultrix inspired by the Traditional Roman Spirituality. I’ve tried to follow in your blog (and in other american blogs) the discussions about some topics whose nature, scope and aims are actually, being a Cultor and Arval living in Italy, not completely clear for me.
    Anyway, the Traditional Roman Spirituality is a very complex (and in the same time very simple) issue: it’s a “practice” often very difficult to “genuinely” live. I agree with you In many reflections you make i.e. in the perspective to experience such spirituality often in accordance with the Ancient Tradition deriving from Veda and the Ancient Indian Heritage.
    Experiencing such spirituality in simplicity (“simple” derives from Latin word “simplex” or “with no folds”) is the better way to approach the Deities.
    May Gods and Goddesses support your walk along the Via.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment! I definitely feel that it is a “practice” in a very true sense. This path of spirituality is not unlike my path as an artist, where continuing to work over time slowly unfolds into a more masterful work.

      As for the American side, I can see how we are much like the Gauls in a way to a modern Italian. We may, for whatever reason, Adoratio to the left instead of the right. 😉 Here we are very spread out, small in number, and hold very different interpretations of the Via. What we do have are polytheists from other traditions to converse with, which causes us at times to need to address how we approach our religions on a much more theoretical level to find common ground.

      I truly believe that the Roman Way holds many amazing gifts to share with other like-minded faiths. And it is because of that, and my passion for how the Gods have truly changed my life for the better, that I find myself talking so much on the theory.

      I would also like to say that I absolutely love your blog. So much of the information you so graciously share has helped me expand my own education greatly. Thank you for that.
