And thus does more of the Rapture tradition unfold:

The way ahead is long. And the way is hard. Each day, it is harder to lift my feet for the next step. The passages of the labyrinth wind on and on. Read more... )

Rapture has four basic principles. I name them after Sinnish words, and I know what they mean, in brief and at length. But it's hard to explain sometimes.

But a song I was listening to today and a lyric struck me. So I wrote down the quotes that all seem to typify each principle, in my mind. So here you go.

Play me wide. Play me long. Let me be your song
- Let me be Your Song, Fraggle Rock

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another..
- Proverbs 27:17

The profoundest act of worship is to try to understand.
- The Word of God, Echo's Children

That which does not kill me makes me stranger.
- Trevor Goodchild, Aeon Flux

May new life fill the void in the next year.

The Prayer of Adoration (yadis ote weshayav) is said from one to another and is a sort of dedication of one's feelings to another. By speaking the prayer, you are offering up your love and energy to another (the sacrament of edoa) and offering an intimate and loving connection. By offering (and accepting) this prayer, you are accepting that other for all that they are and that they can be in your life. This is appropriate for intimate, powerful relationships of all types, even those sometimes/long-distance relationships that can end up an important part of your life.

I've been talking a lot to [livejournal.com profile] queenofhalves and [livejournal.com profile] eleri about magick and religion lately (well before 'Stine left for her vacation). And I've been reading Evolutionary Witchcraft, which is about the Feri tradition of witchcraft. So it's been on my mind a lot...
okay, this is another long one... )

[livejournal.com profile] arib has been here for the week. He's been really helpful to have around, made the week a lot more pleasant (which we needed since the temperature has been in the 100s again).
