Anticipation and introspection

I love October. I love the look and smell of it, but also the feel of it. The energy changes, and the dead are nearby.

In a couple of weeks, I will be attending my third Fet Gede. I’m looking forward to it.

I recently finished reading my second Murry Hope book (her autobiography, “The Changling”). Ms. Hope is a fascinating woman who seems quite sane. She does not seem to be “in it for the money” (she has lived at poverty level on more than one occasion) and is not, in my opinion, attempting to start any type of cult movement or set herself up as a leader. She is too much of a loner for that. And I had to laugh at the fact that, while some people would no doubt classify her books as “New Age,” the woman herself hates New Age stuff. Her autobiography was tastefully candid and not always flattering. When I began the book, I hoped that it would help me clarify my thoughts on the first book I read by her, “The Lion People.” And it has.

I believe Ms. Hope is legitimate. Is everything she writes true? I don’t know. But I believe she is being honest in her books. Any doubt I have is due to the nature of channeled information—there is always a margin for error of interpretation, whether due to the receiver’s personality/desires or the clarity of the signal.

I have leapt right into my third Murry book, “The Sirius Connection.” And I have another book about the lion people on order. My connection with Sekhmet and my own therian nature seem to be spurring me onwards. It’s an interesting ride.

    Ah, I left a comment on a much older post, and then signed up for a wordpress account, so it would be easier for you to reach me. If you can contact me, I would be VERY grateful. I can be found at clayshaper at comcast dot net and am looking to connect with the local peristyle/voudou temple. I’m a real, responsible, and steadily learning person who is active already in the pagan community, but I am VERY out of my depth here. I have been searching for a local group, and this is the first time I have found evidence of one!
