About the gods

So what do I believe about the gods?  It’s kinda complicated but I will try to get my view across.

I believe the gods are of two natures. One is outside of ourselves  The other is within.

Outside I believe they are entities to be honored. I do this through ritual and personally building relationships with them. I do believe they take an active interest in the goings on of Midgard. I don’t believe they’re Santa Claus meant to fulfill our every whim. I do believe they communicate with those who actively pursue a right relationship with them.

Inside I believe they are expressions of the collective unconsciousness. Archetypes. They help us explain our multiverse. They are inside all of us. They wait patiently for us to take the clues they send and use them to our benefit. They are vibrant as long as we pay attention to them.

So I guess that’s what I believe in a nutshell. Full of holes I’m sure but I am not perfect. I’m just following a path like everyone. Sometimes I get glimmers of inspiration. Sometimes I flail about in the dark. But I’m always moving!
