John Beckett makes a very important point in his latest blog post, that we can become
easily distracted by the unfolding chaos in the world around us and get ourselves tied up in the struggle against some awful things happening – so much so that we can forget to honour our gods and goddesses, especially at festival time.
So happy Imbolg everyone! The first shoots of spring are starting to appear, snowdrops delicately braving the still cold nights and the days beginning to lengthen. Remember to honour your gods and to celebrate the season.
Your gods will be needed. Without our spiritual practices we will descend furiously into pits of despair and anger. Our battles won’t have the extra piece of luck that we need without the support of our gods or without a good dose of magic – I think it was Napoleon who talked about the need for lucky generals.
So do your thing now and remember to celebrate those first shoots of spring!
