Well, what a wonderful way to start my day.... Just had to listen to some loser bitch and moan like a child for 15 minutes about how I "didn't say excuse me" before pushing past his feet, which he had up on the seat of the subway car.... where they shouldn't be to begin with. Funny thing is, I did say excuse me. Twice. Then I told him to fucking move. None of which he heard because he had headphones on. 

I honestly don't think people appreciate how much effort it takes for me to not physically hurt them. I am amazed I somehow managed not to break both his legs before getting off the subway. I wish laws against violence didn't protect idiots like that from the natural outcome of their boorishness. I wish they would recognize by looking in my eyes that threat of "punishment" is the only thing that holds me back from opening a new hole in their skull. Some people deserve nothing less. e_e

Mayday, we're going down.

So, today and tomorrow mark the midway point between the spring and summer equinox, celebrated as Beltane by the Gaels, Walpurgisnacht by the Germanic Pagans, Floralia by the Romans, and Calan Mai by the Welsh (among others). These festivals generally celebrate the coming of summer, fertility, and the migration of livestock into summer pastures. They also gave people an excuse to gather, socialize, celebrate, and let loose after difficult winter seasons, as well as seek blessings from the many pagan gods, spirits, and energies which were believed to be more active than usual at this time of year. It was an important time to solidify relationships with neighbors, and other locals, and collectively raise the spirits of that particular society.

Beltane is also a time for letting go of the stresses and troubles of the past, and moving forward unburdened by the spiritual and emotional deadweight we've been carrying around. Typical celebrations include passing through or between sacred cleansing bonfires for protection, and symbolically giving your woes and troubles up to the fire's smoke to be carried away into the sky. Dancing around a Maypole was also a common tradition in the Welsh and Germanic Pagan cultures. Many also created bushes decorated by stringed flowers, ribbons, shells, and other natural symbols to be displayed in houses and town squares. It was a time of great joy, feasting, and general merriment among the people.

These festivals were important cornerstones of the year in many Pre-Abrahamic and "Pagan" religious systems; while they're still celebrated by Neo-Pagans, Druids, Satanists, Reconstructionists, and Wiccans today - they have largely disappeared since the Judeo-Christian-Islamic expansion stamped out the smaller Pagan religions that predated them. They've been mostly replaced with Church, Temple, and Mosque services, as well as private religious family gatherings in homes.

Personally, I think we've lost something huge there as a species. Sure, there are still secular festivals like May Day held in various places which try to adapt some of the less esoteric rituals into non-religious activities (maypole dancing and Halloween still takes place in a non-religious context) but by and large I think the rise of Monotheistic religions has robbed our various cultures of some really great festivals and gatherings and replaced them with some pretty stuffy dogma and ritual that doesn't do much to bring us together as a people.

I have my own views on why the Monotheists do not employ such festivals; they center a lot around self-empowerment and personal spirituality instead of religious obedience and dogmatism. They did not uphold the narrative the Monotheists were trying to push. BUT I'm curious as to what you all think about it. Are we missing out on something, or is the move away from larger village rituals and celebrations just a natural reflection of our move from Polytheism to Monotheism as a majority belief of the planet? Do you think there is benefit or harm to losing these types of spiritual festivals? Do you think their being ignored and replaced with Abrahamic and secular holidays was an intentional or malicious act, or just a natural evolution of cultural religious observances?

+Mathew Armstrong I'm not talking about a distance from the digital at all, I actually see most of the festival type gatherings and such as being pretty compatible with technology. Burning Man is a great example of how people can still gain that kind of communal/ceremonial gathering type atmosphere, even without religious overtones.

I just mean spending time as a people. together. We walk past each other on streets, and see each other in stores and eateries, but I feel like the concept of a "town" or a "neighborhood" is basically evaporated in most places. At least urban places. We're all just people living on our own who happen to interact sometimes.

I feel like these types of gatherings helped to build a sense of community and oneness in a town or city, and now we only get that when there's fireworks to see, or something to protest.... people don't really gather much anymore, religious or otherwise. :-\ Unless you're a fan of sports, or you go to a lot of concerts, there's no good way to get this type of large-scale communal gathering on a regular basis.

On the heels of Iceland approving the plans to build as Asatru pagan temple, it seems N. ireland is throwing its hat in the religious freedom game. Good for them.
Northern Ireland has for the first time recognized a pagan priest and his church by granting full religious status to the Order of the Golden River.

The fact that this is a working thing, and not computer generated, embodies everything they are doing right about this new Star Wars film.
 
The way I'm picturing this working is the ball is moved by internal reaction wheels and the head unit is a separate piece that cleaves to the body with magnets.

Well of course the answer is don't get a tattoo to begin with.

I imagine people the world over will now be running en masse to have tattoos removed to make sure their Apple Watch will work properly. 
If you need another reason to rethink getting that sleeve tattoo, Apple just gave you one: the Apple Watch doesn't work so well when worn on a tattooed wrist. A few days after the smartwatch's...

Introduction
I'm a leftist-libertarian, social anarchist, panentheistic satanist, meta-ethical moral relativist, and countless other labels that will never fully define me. The most important thing for you to know is that I'm my own person, for better or worse. I'm not going to say things you agree with all the time; I'm not even going to say things that you like all the time, but you can be sure that I'm going to say exactly what I feel. I'm not going to sugar coat my opinions to protect people with grandiose delusions, or fragile egos. If you're not interested in unorthodox opinions, or if you can't handle your own beliefs being challenged, it's best to move right along. I welcome any and all challenges to anything I say, as long as they are not made from a position of ignorance, prejudice, or bigotry.

Neither the world, the flesh, nor the devil himself is like a puritan suit in only black and white. All is gray, and the devil they fear is not the devil I know.
- Mary Sibley -- Salem

Are You Alive?
The simple answer may be that you are alive because you can ask that question.

What is the most basic article of faith?
That this is not all that we are.

I'm more than this body.
I'm more than this consciousness. 
A part of me swims in the stream, 
but in truth I'm standing on the shore. 
The current never takes me downstream. 
I see the universe. I see the patterns. 
I see the love that binds all living things together. 
I see the foreshadowing that proceeds every moment.  
I am more than you could ever imagine.
