    Still discovering. Don’t really believe in any deities though.

    Imbolc Advice

    A friend of mine, and myself, are planning on celebrating Imbolc. We’re both really new at this, and thus don’t quite know what we’re doing, although we would like to celebrate it.
    We’re planning to make a bonfire (her property has a safe place where we could do so), and make potato soup, candied carrots and an Imbolc ritual cake provided by Other than that (and probably just dancing around the bonfire either with or without music) we don’t have a plan.
    Is there any advice you would give us?
    Thank you

    That sounds lovely! I also like to make candles at this time of year, but you've got the fire aspect covered already.

    It sounds like it'll be a lovely time.

    Honestly, I agree...that sounds lovely! I'm all for loosely planned spontaneous ritual. I think the most profound experiences come from such.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett
