Quote about the gods

“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.”

    Check out the novel “Gods Behaving Badly” by Marie Phillips. It’s a story about what would happen if the ancient Greek gods had been holed up in an old London house for a couple of millennia, and suddenly they come in contact with mortals. Very funny, and an interesting premise, too!

    Yeah, someone should write stories for their gods. 🙂
