Ahimsa Grove: Vegan Pagan Thanksgiving Food, Family, and Gratitude


Like the Sabbat of Mabon, the secular holiday of Thanksgiving gives us a chance to sit down with loved ones and enjoy a meal. The bounty of the table is essentially an altar where the abundance in all aspects of our lives is symbolized. It may be bounty that we have, or bounty that we aspire to. Vegan Pagans add the component to this ritual of aspiring to be deeply aware of where each recipe ingredient comes from. Though we are as imperfect in this pursuit as everyone else, we seek to practice harmlessness toward others. Therefore a turkey’s body will not be at the center of our altar. We will seek to eliminate other animal-derived products, as well. Many of us will also take fair trade and other consumer issues into consideration. Is it all too overwhelming?

I am a morning person at heart. I wake easily and love the stirrings of life waking up, as well as the stirrings of life going to bed for the daylight time.

The sky here is dark, promising rain later today or maybe tomorrow. There may still be time to plant some more spinach. Maybe.

Pagan News Beagle: Airy Monday, November 16

The Guardian examines the long-term influence of one of the world's most famous science fiction novels. A comic details the story of a cop secretly practicing magic. And Vin Diesel explains how The Silmarillion informs his views of mortality. It's Airy Monday, our weekly look at magic and religion in popular culture. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Why We Speak English

In this season of the ancestors, I remember Horse and Hench, the legendary brothers (some would say, lovers) who led their people to the Promised Land.

England, that is.

You may, perhaps, know them as Horsa and Hengist, as they would have been called in their own day: literally “horse” and “stallion.” Hench is a worn-down form of hengist: a henchman was originally a hengist-man, literally a horse (or stallion)-man: i.e. a squire or groom.

Some would claim them as historic figures. J. R. R. Tolkien—himself a Hwiccan lad— certainly thought so. But of course it's not that simple.

The Divine Flows Through Me

My Gods and Goddesses flow through me
Strong and powerful rising up in me
I offer my devotion and my love.

My mind is open to receive
The wisdom and guidance of Divine grace.

This week we're going to discuss Lemurian Seed crystals. They sometimes are similar in shape to Laser Wands, and indeed, some Lemurian Seed crystals ARE Laser Wands. As a reminder of what Laser Wands here, follow this link to a post on that subject. Though Lemurian Seed crystals are sometimes in the shape of Laser wands, (a thicker base which tapers to a very small terminating end) they do differ in a few very different ways, both physically and energetically. Energetically, Laser Wands typically have a laser-type focus, whereas Lemurian Seed crystals have a feeling of connection, love, star travel and a vast opening. We'll get to the other differences a little later in the post.

Lemurian Seed crystals are reputed to have been "seeded" (aka planted) by the wisdom keepers in ancient Lemuria, before they left planet when their civilization on Earth was no longer viable and coming to an end. Lemurian Seed crystals are said to have been encoded with information to help guide us, by imparting the Lemurian's attitude of love, peace, enlightenment and conscious connection.

Fireverse 5: When Loki Told Me NOT to Go Spread Anarchy

On Friday April 18, 2014, there was a barbecue at the Bundy Ranch. I was being pressured to go by my political friends who had been my campaign volunteers when I ran for office the previous year. The woman who had been my campaign manager called me and asked me to come out and lead everyone in singing Bring It Down, the Leslie Fish anarchist ballad, which we had sung at a New Years' Even party after the end of my campaign.

    Thanks! Several of my friends are also writing about Loki and Ragnarok. We all seem to be on the same wavelength.
