"dead idols" renewal ritual
« on: July 23, 2016, 09:07:04 pm »
I'm sure most of you will be familiar with this concept from monotheist rhetoric:

the pagan repents of their so-called faith, and is horrified by their many many "dead" "merely man-made" deity-images, when they get a taste of the One Living God; they have a big emotional upheaval, repent of their ways, and destroy the images.

(Mostly this storyline was an invention, creating invented "ideal converts" or "convert saints" for real converts -- whose stories and convictions were always more mixed -- to model themselves after)

The thing is, this thing resonates with me. At least the part where, after a Significant Experience, or even just after settling into a rut, the trappings of my ritual life seem extremely flimsy and stale.

Is there a KO ritual, or have any of you bootstrapped a ritual that works for you, to sort of send out what's imperfect or otherwise decommission votive images (or end prayer/offering routines...) when they fail to call your mind to the the Living Names?

I know there is a procedure for decommissioning objects from your shrine. I believe it involves leaving it sitting in sunlight for three days. I'm away from my shrine cabinet right now, but if you have the Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook, I think it's in there. I can grab the details for you later if you don't have access to it!
