Back again!
« on: September 18, 2017, 03:35:22 am »
Hotep everyone!

Hopefully at least a few of you remember me; it feels like I've been gone for a looong time. The good news is: I graduated from university! Yay! The bad news is, my religious practice has completely lapsed. I haven't done Senut in... longer than I want to talk about. Months, at least. I actually forgot about Wep Ronpet until it was already over. I feel like I've been really spiritually starved for a while now, which has only made things harder: I'm still reeling from the monumental change that is (finally) graduating college and moving on to the next thing... as well as the anxiety that is not quite knowing what the next thing is yet.

I'm ready to start once again fulfilling the promise I made to my Mothers when I took my Shemsu vows. I've started reading The Search for God in Ancient Egypt by Jan Assmann and thinking seriously about my gods again, and that already has me feeling more centered. My shrine area is a mess, but I'm hoping to clean it up in the next couple of days, so I can start doing Senut again (aaah, I'm scared of going back!). I want to get involved, more consistently than before.

So that's where I am right now. Hope everyone here is well, and I'll be seeing you around.  :)

Em hotep and welcome back, friend! I'm glad we'll be seeing more of you. <3 NTR understands that sometimes life happens. I think they'll be glad for you to do more Senut, rather than punitive. <3

Welcome back, Ha’autmuti! I do indeed remember you. It’s good to “see” you!

And just to reinforce what others have said - it’s rare that the gods are angry that we have been away. More often they are just happy to see us.

I'm sure your Mothers will be overjoyed to see you. <3 They've never left you, even though school and life have kept you occupied. ^_^

Em hotep, Ha'aut! Welcome back! I also had been on a long hiatus from my religious practice due to school so I can relate to your feelings. But as others have said, the gods are forgiving and happy when Their children return to the faith.

Congratulations on graduating and best of luck as you move on to the next chapter of your life!

Welcome back! It's a pleasure to meet you! :)

I'm also in the midst of schooling and I understand completely how it cuts into shrine and spiritual time, but They are always there waiting~ I hope your journey continues in a good direction! :D

Sibling!! Welcome back! You have not been forgotten, and your Mothers are undoubtably glad to have you engaging again - but I doubt They are in any way disappointed. :) Our gods understand that life happens, especially with big things like university!
