Does anyone know of any good military pagan groups on LJ? I've just gotten to Iraq again and I'm trying to make some more contacts.

Copy this, email it to all your friends, have them email it to their friends, etc.
Then in a couple of weeks gas prices should go down.

Just by way of following the logic for the huge increase in gas prices (50%)

The reason for the increase is cited as oil shortage due to the war with Iraq using so much oil.

The reason cited for the war has been found to be incorrect, if not an outright lie.

The person citing the reasons for the war is in all likelihood a puppet of people in the military-industrial complex, such as the people heavily invested in Halliburton (the oil company), such as Rupert Murdoch, who owns a huge quantity of shares in American Fidelity, which owns a huge quantity of shares in Halliburton http://www.halliburton.com/

May it be noted here that Rupert Murdoch in one way or another owns most of the news media.

The entity profiting most from the war with Iraq *AND* the increased gas prices is, of course, Halliburton. 600 billion dollars worth of taxpayer money.

In my view another case of the rich robbing the poor so that the rich may *own* the world.

National security is not and never was the objective. Vice President C was, before becoming VP, the CEO (Chief Executive Officer; guy in charge) of Halliburton. The only perceivable objective was the enrichment of Halliburton shareholders and making the military-industrial complex (about whom President Eisenhower warned us) even more powerful and feared throughout the world (i.e. Iran)

WHY the American public is not aware of this is incomprehensible. A short internet search of major shareholders of Halliburton and American Fidelity reveals it quite plainly. Therefore I am only citing knowledge which is already public.

The chain of logic is irrefutable: Serious conflict of interest. The murder of innumerable people for the enrichment of the already rich.

I once again repeat: "The government is supposed to be for *THE PEOPLE,* (the majority of whom are either middle-class or poor) not the minority rich. Capish? To recapitulate: We The People are being shafted.

But I honestly think that no one cares enough to do anything about it, and/or is too scared to do so. After all, the "King of the Hill" is rather tremendously large, and capable of killing whom he will.

I will likely not be available hereafter for comment, and this journal may soon no longer be in existence. Ciaou

"Prescott Bush was a director of Dresser Industries, which is now part of Halliburton. Former United States president George H. W. Bush worked for Dresser Industries in several positions from 1948–1951, before he founded Zapata Corporation.":
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halliburton

"Halliburton is the largest oil-and-gas services company in the world and it is also one of the most controversial corporations in the United States.

The company has been the number one financial beneficiary of the invasion of Iraq, raking in some $18 billion in contracts to rebuild the country’s oil industry and service US troops.":

"This intriguing book shows readers where Halliburton has been doing business and with whom-topping the list so far are Iran, Iraq, and Libya. It also reveals how this juggernaut of a corporation has engaged in a cycle of profits that begins by selling products and services to potential terrorist states, contracting with the federal government during times of war against those states, then gaining valuable rebuilding contracts to help repair those states. It will also show how a Halliburton subsidiary, Kellogg Brown & Root, has become an indispensable part of the U.S. military, so much so that the two are indistinguishable at times.":

(Is this guy still alive?)

This in The New Yorker
“There is not a reason on earth to sell gasoline at the price they did,” Youssef Ibrahim, the managing director of the Strategic Energy Investment Group, a consulting firm in Dubai, said. “Halliburton and their Kuwaiti partners made out like bandits.” A well-informed Kuwaiti source called the prices charged by Altanmia “absurd,” and said that Halliburton’s arrangement to buy Kuwaiti oil through a middleman, rather than directly from the government, was “highly irregular.”:

The above information is not secret. Just plug in "halliburton oil" in Google. There are 274,000 results.:

I can no longer afford to drive my car to work, a distance of 25 miles one-way. I need a motorbike or an electric bicycle.
Truck drivers in Spain are striking because of high gas prices. The price of *everything* is going up as a result. So we can't afford to buy *anything*. Are you yourself not disturbed?
If not, you must be rich.

I have posted the above as an alternative to calling the administration some very bad words. We are quite tired of being "shafted," if you get my drift. And this by our own government.

I just did a runecasting, first one for me, and wanted some input on the reading of it. I don't want to put my interpretation of it out here, I'd like some views on how the three runes fit together without any knowledge of my views.

thoughts welcomeCollapse )

A nice video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33TSeWt6QDU

A short video about why a man changed from Christianity to Pagan Druidism. I found it inspirational, he puts plainly why many of us made the switch and the joyful freedom found in our faith.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For Litha we are asking for a $10 donation at the gates to help pay for the portapotties and the meat for the Feast.

This is a weekend camping event. Please be prepared to bring all appropriate gear and supplies for you and those in your care. The weather in Wiley, CO tends towards about 15 degrees hotter than Denver, please keep this in mind when packing your clothes.

All ages are welcome! Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Children under 16 without their legal guardian must provide emergency contact info.

There will be a small clothing optional area, because of the size of this space it will be first come, first serve. Not everyone is comfortable with open nudity and with our rule of observing personal boundaries, if you want to be bare - please stay in bare country.

The Main Ritual will be at sundown on Saturday and includes:
The traditional symbolic battle between the Summer and Winter Kings,
A Midsommer Feast
drumming, a bonfire, dancing and firespinning
(please bring fresh fruits/veggies to share at the feast.)

Workshops and the children's ritual will start at 1pm Saturday.
(Families with children - please bring a mason jar with lid or glass jar equivalent and something small and shiny for their ritual. They will be gathering water from the local creek and giving their gifts to the Goddess of the waters.)

A bathing/cleansing New Moon ritual will take place on Friday night. This is open to all and there is nudity involved, however, no one but the priest/esses providing the ritualistic bath to each participant individually, within a dome structure, will see the nudity.
This ritual is not sexual in any way - it is a chance to be cleansed by the Triple Moon Goddess ~ Diana/Selena/Hecate.

If it gets too hot for you during the day - Our host/ess have put forward the welcome to go into the air conditioning of their home and visit with our Mama Gaia - Vashti. She will be doing henna designs on anyone who would like one for free also. (Pregnant women get special treatment as our hostess is VERY pregnant and willing to share the bathroom in her house with others in a similar state. They call it the pregnancy privilege.)

Our main rules:
Respect other's personal boundaries, if you don't know - ask.
Participate!
Leave No Trace
Respect other's beliefs - as you would like yours respected.
No commerce.
No Pets

If you would like to lead a workshop or smaller ritual specific to your tradition/path, please contact Moonfire immediately. Especially if it is to be done in skyclad - we must make sure to leave enough room for you in bare country. All workshops for SoulFire Haven Festivals are to be an opportunity to share your personal traditions and rituals with new people.

All drummers are welcome and encouraged, as are firespinners and Trance/Ambient DJs. If you would like to be a DJ for this event - please contact Moonfire ASAP.

He's Gone
Thank you all for your love and kind words, they mean a lot to me. Donovan passed away at 7:40am today, I have been hiding at Aaron's until he had to go to work at 10pm. Donnie went peacefully and in my lap, with Aaron right there beside me.

I'll be at Double Daughters tonight for a Burning Man Recompression party, to get my head out of the grief for a bit and keep me out of the too quiet house.

Thanks again, you don't know how much all of your responses mean to me.

Please send love
My cat, Donovan, of 12 years is dying. He had liver disease, and I came home tonite to find that he can no longer use his back legs. His breathing is becoming erratic, I only hope he doesn't hold on too long and cause more suffering for himself.

Please, please send thoughts of love and that it's okay for him to pass on. Donnie is my familiar and I only want his suffering to be over. I'll post again when he does.

hello i thought it wise to join as i am considering adopting druidry as a lifestyle, not as a religion as i dont believe in the word, i have been reading up on it and thought i would learn more before i make the choice as i dont think any lifestyle change should be taken lightly

Strange
Have you ever noticed that people who do you harm sometimes die a mysterious death or otherwise fall into bad circumstances?
I mean without your doing anything that might cause it.

Magicians
You are aware, I hope, that the word druid in ancient lore meant "wizard?"
The druids of old were the learners, the scientists of the time. Most people didn't have any idea what science was, so they thought they were wizards.

They didn't allow writing their knowledge, so we have no history of them other than what other people said.

Apparently when you change the ownership of a community, the members get deleted.

You will have to rejoin. I even had to rejoin. Sorry!
