I am Not God-phone Material

Posted by on in Studies Blogs

Hi.  I am NOT god-phone material.  I am so lazy and procrastinat-ive that I just don't keep up regular communications with any deities at all.  I had a thing with Bast a while back, but I"m a lazy mo-fo. And I'm proud of it.  I'm still Pagan and live my life as naturally as possible (except for Taco Bell and the occasional battery-powered indulgence) with the caveat that I'm a hedonist. 

Anybody else out there who is okay with being a regular every-day sort of Pagan? No need to be a priest of anything? No need to have direct communication with a deity? Just enjoying the pleasures of natural living and natural worship?

    I'd have said the exact same thing before Loki showed up as Himself and rocked my world. So yes, I get where you're coming from, very much so - I was a very contented lay pagan, and had no interest in being godtouched or any of that stuff. It made for some craziness because while He was clearly interested in me, and I in Him, I didn't understand why that needed to be a public affair.

    But really, even for people who do the godphone thing, it's nice to let someone else be priest/ess sometimes, and to just chill and be at a ritual as yourself. I consider myself lucky that I am surrounded by Pagans of various paths, some with godphones, some not, all of whom lead damn fine rituals.

    I spent twenty years as a Pagan without any clear conception of deity, much less a conversation with any. It can be a satisfying life, but those who live it don't find the need to explain it so much . . . you're in the proverbial silent majority.

    I find this encouraging as I have never had an inkling that anything is out there. I might as well be talking to myself.

    I personally go one step further. I Do Not Truck With Deities. Period. I don't worship, I don't invoke etc. I work with certain archetypes as embodied by pop culture fictional characters, but I don't deal with Gods. I don't look down on those who do, but for me, I left Christianity because I did not want to feel like a slave of a Deity, and that's how I would view becoming beholden to another one, just trading one form of slavery for another.
