Worship

Post  Human on Sat Apr 19, 2014 7:43 pm

I live in a Christian house hold, I am disabled and I can't move out at this point. But I'm having issues worshiping with the family. I know this should be obvious but what should I do till I can get my own place? Should I just stop till then or should I try to find some alternatives? At this point I think I should just wait to avoid any problems and just stick to prayers because I don't want to build a shrine and have something on it broken or thrown away.

If you are concerned about the safety and integrity of a shrine in your home, then certainly, it is probably best to wait until you are in a situation where there is not such risk of its being desecrated.

The Sun is, itself, a living image of Phoebus, and, by extension, of the supernal Jove himself, in whom exist all the Gods. There is a consecrated and empsychosed ἄγαλμα coursing through the heavens wherever you are and wherever you go.

Intone your prayer and pour out an offering of water onto the ground under the eye of the Sun. You will be rightly making a pure and holy offering before a divine image, and I doubt anyone will be the wiser.

Thanks so much that helps a lot. I was unsure where to put this but I figured there might be others who have this issue.
