Quote about the gods

Post by Darkamber on Mon Jul 06, 2015 3:15 am

I really like this. My thoughts exactly.

“Do you ever wonder at it? This whole thing where people construct their whole practice out of ancient mythology? It’s like they imagine that someone, some two thousand years ago (a little less) hit the pause button.

There is no cosmic pause button. The gods are not figments or toys that vanish when humans can’t see them. We do not cease to think, or learn, or grow because you’ve forgotten about us.

It is time to ask yourselves, “What have the gods been doing since then?”

Then, I don’t know. Maybe somehow integrate that into your practice. Or — Quelle scandale! — write new mythology to reflect what the gods might have learned from what happened to their ancients cults.”

Exactly! Which is why I don't do recon. That's running around with your head facing backwards. We aren't static, so why should we assume that They are?

Because the world is a!big scary place and far too many recons just want to climb into the womb of the past.
I always thought reconstructionism was a good idea as far as having some sort of foundation, but not the whole building, you know? Things aren't that way now for a reason: they didn't pass muster. Christendom assimilated them but they did the same to everyone else. This is what happens when you don't keep written records. Time waits for no one.

Yeah, I was a recon for a long time, and I can certainly see all the faults with it now.
