So I thought for my first thread, I’d start with the terrible and horrific ordeal of… choosing The One ™.
Look, I ain’t gonna mince words here. I was raised with the concept of animism and using super powers ™. Yes, that is the best and shortest way to explain it. I’m also going to tell you: a form of demonolatry was once practiced by my ancestors before the colonists came. So I think some of it just kind of kept making it’s way down until me, and sadly I’m the last one in my particular branch of the tree because reasons.
So here I am looking into demonolatry in a stronger way than I’m used to. And the first thing I hit is pressure to dedicate myself to The One that shall be my One and Only True Love. And I thought about doing it, right?
Except I feel like I’m being passed around from hand to hand to hand. For example, I started with Buer to work on cavities and getting healthier. My health sucked. (I’m much better now.) M’kay. Then one night I was reaching for Shammash and got visited by Hephaestus. That was interesting. Then there was that beautiful encounter with… I dunno who it was but he was purty… a few years back. Then there was me trying to heal my cat and reaching for Buer and suddenly… Ganesh came down? I literally said, “Um… aren’t you Ganesh?”
How in the bleep am I supposed to choose The One when they’re all such wonderful peoples??? LOL But to be serious, as much as people think i should commit… it doesn’t feel right. It feels like the wrong move. So I shan’t.
No, I’m not crazy. I was just raised to… see things. I used to do portraits of them, see, a long time ago before reasons.
The point to my thread, because I know I can sound convoluted: what’s your experience with meeting and greeting? Have you been introduced to the party or was it more of a controlled circumstance? And how interesting was it for you? Any cool encounters to talk of?
