About the Pagan Sermon

Is cáem le deithibh as rúndiamhar.

“The gods love what is hidden.”

This is perhaps the truest of the ancient Vedic proverbs as the gods love nothing more than to hide things in plain sight. There are times when the vastness of all the wonders in reality presses down with the threat of our vital frailty — how can we see even a hint of how glorious is life and reality when life itself is so short? — and then there are other times when the all-too-common mundanity of mankind’s usual stupidities distracts me from those happy, awestruck moments. It is at those latter times that I need a reminder.

We all need reminders to look in plain sight for the hidden wonder of the gods. That’s what this site is about — pointing out the hidden, amazing wonder of all that is.

The idea is that every pagan holiday — the solstices, equinoxes, new moons, full moons, and the cross-quarter days of Samhain, Imbolc, Bealtaine, and Lughnasadh (not to mention any others I decide to include) — I will post up some meditation and lesson pertinent to that day and pointing out the gods in this world or how we can perceive their presence.

If you’re not comfortable with the title, you may read a fuller description here of why I chose it. You can of course read the post anyway even if you’re ok with it, and that’s all about it I’m willing to say beyond ‘feel free to comment.’

      Thanks so much! It means a lot to get positive feedback, but even better is getting the chance to see who’s liking what I’ve written and then seeing what they’re doing as well. I look forward to reading ‘In the Desert of Seth!’
