01:56 pm - "Billy Clyde wasn't insane. . ."
So, today I'm meeting with _crow365__ and club to perform The Ritual of the Pentave. I admit to looking forward to this, and I'm happy at its timing. It reminds me of things I've generally forgotten about.

I'm happy today, as I was yesterday. I was reading Eliade recently, working up an article about the Water Skate in Zuni mythology and sacred centers, and I came across his discussion of orientation in Sacred and the Profane, a discussion I'd never read before. I realized, when I thought of why I felt so good when I expected that I would feel fairly terrible, it seems to be because I have found orientation.

For a while, I was sort of liminal. I wasn't sure where I stood in relations to a lot of things.

But on Wednesday night, I found definition. I know who I am.

And that is a huge relief.

My Buffett Oracle for the morning is:

35. The pleasure was worth all the pain.

Whatever I did, it worked with that Oracle. . .

So who are you? Are you the same person you were a week ago, or an augmented person?

We're doing it for the following four days, as well. It's a five day ritual.

That, and where the exits are on the plane. Gods only know when the plane will be filled with snakes. One must then pray that Samuel L. Jackson is on board!

Humm, you just now came across Eliade's orientation stuff? Hell, that *is* Eliade...

I think Jones summarized Eliade the best: "Man stood up, and religion was created". (one man stood up, he became his own axis mundi and hence, had orientation). Beautiful in its simplicity. :)

I've read it before, and heard it before. But it's just now really sinking in.

With a lot of RS stuff, I have to *experience* before I can *understand*.
