A few words of wisdom, not my own

For me being a polytheist doesn’t just mean that I affirm and worship many gods. It also means that I allow and affirm many different paths and traditions; other people don’t have to do things My Way. And it means that there’s no one source of wisdom; I don’t have Scripture or a body of Lore. All literature might be scripture for me, sacred text; so might movies, songs, a television show.

So tonight I feel moved to paraphrase one of the teachings of a deified radical Palestinian preacher and healer who was executed for terrorism:

“Love your gods with your whole heart and soul and mind and strength–but don’t forget to love yourself and your fellow mortals, too.”
