A Quick Update

13 Werde 3336

Dear friends,

I’m just making this post to apologise for the lack of posts and interaction with the community this past few weeks. I have been deeply depressed and came down with the flu, which I can’t seem to fully shake. I’ve been incredibly disturbed by the results of the US presidential election, also. Despite not being an American, I worry for my friends across the pond who are LGBT, women, non-white, disabled, or non-Christian, and for our Sister Earth, who may suffer greatly under Trump.

I guess I have to trust Dea to heal me, to heal the planet, that all will come right in the end, that this world is only a grain of sand on the shore of the universe, and that our siblings in Ekklesia from countless other worlds are routing for us.

Blessed is She.

  1. Erin for what it is worth I do regularly read your blog. I am sorry to hear about your current sufferings. I have never been a person who feels comfortable making petitionary prayers either for myself or others. I tend to wonder to what degree these prayer have in the world ( I do not want to discuss the reasons for this now) and I have other personal blocks as well. These are not something that I feel good about. On the contrary I feel quite positive about those who can give themselves to its spirit. I wish I were more like them.

    All that being said, I did pray this morning that the suffering that you are experiencing will be relieved and I hope to maintain a struggle to become better at prayer for others. Dea be with you.

  2. Madria Erin, I cannot find the quote but it is something along the lines of “a spiritually awakened person can see the reality of the world therefore depression is the natural response.” ~It’s OK to be anxious and angry, says Dominic Pettman, a professor of culture at the New School and author of the upcoming book Infinite Distraction. “When I’m asked how people can have less stress, it makes me think of asking a lobster in a boiling pot how to chill out. The world is kind of intolerable for the 99%,” he says. “I think you just need to feel the stress, work with it, use it to transform things … Acknowledge the pot is getting hotter, it’s reaching boiling point and maybe anxiety is a perfectly legitimate response.”~
