And What About The God? — 2 Comments

  1. Not something I really understand – as a polytheist, the answer you got from Shiva seems very in keeping with his personality and mythology, and the same with Kali. But you wouldn’t get the same answer from Zeus or Freyr or the god of Wicca, who have different personalities and different mythologies, so why would you necessarily get the same answer from your god? (A god I assume you have as you mention him. I actually thought a lot of Dianics were monotheists or henotheists.) It just seems strange to me to equate Shiva’s response with your deity, when they are different cultures and different religions. For example, in Wicca, the god forces – well, teaches – the goddess to love him, by making her remain with him and scourging her tenderly. It’s a beautiful myth in its way, but does underscore the differences between your mythology and that of Wicca, between your god and other gods.

    You don’t honour a god, but I don’t see what the problem is with that. There’s no god in your religion, so why would you?
