Yes, you. You, the closet Egyptian Pantheist. I see you out there, thinking you're the only one who works for the Old Godz. I'm tired of working alone and I want to have a Thing.

A Big Thing(tm).

So, please, if you are (or have folks on your F-list who are) like me, and would be interested in getting together for an actual, honest to goodness, Egyptian flavored ritual, please forward this to them. I'm looking at the evening of July 19th, the Festival of Thoth. I will have this time off thanks to Changeling, already; it's the day after My Lady's birthday; and I know at least 2 of you who follow Big Beaky Head. I think it's a good choice.

Thank you,
The Management

Interesting. You know you can count on me. I have a friend who belongs to Anpu that I will inform of this as well.

I don't. But, really, we're so few and far between, I'd be willing to invite a handful of people I don't know, so long as they are vouched for by my F-list. :-) Please feel free to link.

What's it for? You know I have a deep respect for others spirituality...I just can't bring myself to show it. So out of curiosity if you're going to have belief in something pretend why Egyptian?

Why Egyptian? You know me, I'm a cynic. I would go so far as to say I'm a damned Atheist. I don't believe that a God or Gods will eve come and save or ruin my day (unless they're aliens, in which case... yeah).
But, I also know that people can manipulate the world in ways we don't understand yet, and that symbolism has a purpose. Sometimes it helps us to focus the energies/direction in our lives if we have a clear picture to look at.
I had a dream once, and then read a book in which I saw the picture of the woman in my dream (uh, 16 years ago). That, along with some other "spiritual experiences" I've had, have led me to a place where I am comfortable focusing my energy in an Egyptian flavor. I dig it.
Mind you, I'm not going to be mummified when I die. I don't believe that Ra is an old beardy-headed guy in the sky, or that the woman who became known as Isis actually had wings. I do believe that a lot of deities and lesser deities were glorified Real People. I see Egyptian mythos as an extension of Egyptian culture, and their metaphor seems a little clearer to me than other lores do.
Wow, that's really long, disjointed, and doesn't even begin to touch on what I want to say. Meh. I do appreciate you asking, though. :)
