Watching a series were Terrance McKenna interviews a number of interesting individuals while in Prague. The series is called Terrance McKenna's Prague Gnosis. The first episode is a conversation he has with Ram Dass and it's absolutely delightful!

So last night I discovered that International Fairy Day is June 24th, just in case my fellow fairies need to know when their day is 🧚🏿🧚🏾🧚🏽🧚🏼🧚🏻🧚🧚🏿‍♀️🧚🏾‍♀️🧚🏽‍♀️🧚🏼‍♀️🧚🏻‍♀️🧚‍♀️🧚🏿‍♂️🧚🏾‍♂️🧚🏽‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏻‍♂️🧚‍♂️

Lent, alc, food 

This Lent I had decided to revisit a practice I used to have but haven't observed in a while: giving up meat and alcohol. One week in and I've decided this is not the year to be giving up alcohol.

Not sure if I'm up for driving, or for human interaction for that matter.

Might go to church in person today, making it the second time in as many years.

Imagination is a sacred creative force that we all to often neglect.

Use it, and use it well.

Shrove Tuesday at seminary we would hold a drag themed chapel service.

My final year I had the privilege of preaching at that service. Here's the sermon I gave. I found myself thinking about this again, because sometimes I feel like all of me is just "too much" for most people. So I have to filter, context-switch, and put on different masks. There's only one living person right now I feel I can trust with all of me. Hopefully one day I'll find a few more.

Anyone know how to get out of #Ukraine? I hear there are no flights or trains. Perhaps private shuttle buses or something like that?

Specifically interested in getting from Kropyvnytskyi (Кропивни́цький) to the EU (or at least further west) somehow.

Asking for a family member.

Boosts appreciated.

"Recite to yourself some of the traditional attributes of the word 'spiritual': mythic, magical, ethereal, incorporeal, intangible, nonmaterial, disembodied, ideal, platonic. Is that not the definition of the electronic-digital?" - Timothy Leary, Chaos and Cyber Culture.

Theology posting 

"Are you monotheist or polytheist?"

Yes.

"Wait, which?"

Well, how many gods are there really? And do you think your monotheistic religion has a monopoly on the truth? Like the one true God decided to reveal to your ancestors or your tradition the true ultimate reality and everyone else is just fucked over for having the wrong theology or understanding of the divine? Do you really think that?

"Okay, but who do you pray to?"

Christ, Brigid, Odin, and Ganesh. Sometimes others

My prayers today are with everyone impacted by war, with people angry and helpless as they watch their government and military oppress and murder.

My prayers today are for all those who won't see tomorrow, and all those who will will be left mourning.

prayer, uspol adj., homelessness, domestic abuse 

If you have the ability and power to change things, and you don't, your "thoughts and prayers" are vapid platitudes.

If you don't have the power or ability to change things, sometimes prayer is all you have, and somehow from prayer comes the inspiration and courage to find a way to act.

Prayer is how I survived being homeless for 5 months after leaving an abusive marriage.

Gratitude 2022-02-15 

Taking a much-needed social media sabbath, and I now have a good way to hold myself accountable to sticking to that.
Taking care of myself and setting needed boundaries.
Unconditional love and uncritical support from those in my life.
