10:54 am - Gatekeepers, CTP work, and kicks in the ass. . .
A post by [info]Ceisiwr Serith has me thinking about Vedic gatekeepers today, particularly on the process of what makes one fire agni and another one pu? Is it Vac, and the word you use to refer to the fire that makes it what it is, or is it the intent held at the kindling of the flame?

I'm leaning a lot more toward the verbalization of the "good fire" than I am toward the internalization of the intent. Intent is all well and good for chaotes and fluff bunnies, but it doesn't actually cause reality shifts in ritual.

This, of course, has led me back to a conversation I had with romandruid regarding a Vedic blessing rite. I gotta get that written.

At some point or another, I'll need to talk the Grove into doing a Vedic rite. . . for something. I suspect that means bringing it up at a meeting sometime.

Right now, I'm sure you've noticed that I'm pretty darn far behind on my CTP 2 goals. The week-and-a-half-long internet outage in January affected my ability to work on CTP stuff, and I just haven't caught up. I'm approaching a half-month overdue to finish the darn thing, and I just can't get back on track.

I need a kick in the ass. Then I'll probably need another one. Maybe a third as well. That's a good Druidic number, right?

OK, I will grant that verbalization without intent exists in IE mythology but my experience does not match that.

I am not as trained or studied in magic as you are, I wonder if that accounts for our different viewpoints? Curious.

It may. It may also be a different sort of training: I draw most of my knowledge of magic from ancient sources, which affects my experiences. . . My world, I admit, is populated very similarly to the world of an ancient magician. I do think that there are things out there who will respond to random syllables. . . most modern magicians probably don't.

Then again, I'm of the opinion that the various Necronomicii can take one on a heck of a wild ride. . . most dismiss it out of hand.

Heh. Maybe I'm just dumber than everyone else ;)
