I agree, I have let go but I can see the weave. There is a sense of beauty, almost as though a work of art on an infinite canvas.

 It's an inactive thread but an interesting one. Felt drawn to it.

 As i remember, it was many years ago during a long hot summer. Everyday life was stressful and chaotic. Energy levels were running high. It's at times like that where you say to yourself i really need to take a break for awhile and get centered again. It was during meditation that i slipped into the dream state and wolf manifested itself. It jumped up in my face and tried to frighten the daylights out of me. I calmly told it " You don't frighten me". It lunged again and once more i told it that it didn't frighten me.

 The scene changed and raven presented itself in profile and imparted something that i needed to know but could not see for myself. An icy winter wasteland presented itself and i came to understand that it was the heart of someone near to me at the time. It was quite an eye opener !

 I took some different things from the experience and others like it.

First : It's possible that energy levels are important. The higher your psychic energy level is going in .... the deeper you will go into that other realm.

Second: It's uncertain as to whether or not you're interacting with another aspect of your own mind ( your subconscious) -or- something external in the spirit realm.

Third: It's easy to get bogged down in semantics. Spirit guides and totem animals have different meanings to different people. Sometimes a word or name can have more than one meaning and that can be confusing. What seems to work best for me is simply the generic term " entity ".

 An entity is a pretty vague thing without any discernible form. It's possible that the same entity could manifest itself in any number of different forms. It could be an animal, a grey with big obsidian eyes, the BVM or one particular manifestation of the God/dess ?

 After all .... we all have our own unique way of looking at the world around us. It would make sense that the form we attribute to the thing without form would tell us more about ourselves than anything else ?

 There's a saying " That the more you learn ... the less you know. "

 If that's true, then you could say that the goal post keeps moving. Just when you think you're finally there something new is revealed and the goal scampers away from you. That would drive just about anyone crazy.

 Perhaps the solution would be to just let it go and ride with the current for awhile ?

 Maybe it's the journey and not the destination that is the important thing. The journey can be a lot of fun. There's a whole world of strange and beautiful things out there just waiting for you to discover them. There's some hurt and sadness too but that's all part of the game. Can't have one without the other.

Just an opinion, but i would say that the learning is an ongoing process where one goes from one level of understanding to the next.

 Sometimes you hit a plateau and level off for awhile.

 Sometimes something new is revealed. That can be pretty upsetting because you have to tear down what you thought you knew before you can begin to ascend to the next level.

 My guess would be that this process of tearing down and rebuilding will continue for as long as you will allow it. There's more to be learned than anyone could ever hope to take in during one lifetime.
Well, my goal is to learn everything, but hey perhaps that ambition will end up granting me my goal, even if it doesn't I am sure I will still learn alot.

Welcome back and MY GODS do I know that feeling. I keep a small notebook tucked away on my bookshelf with accounts I have online and the passwords for them, in pencil because, you know, changing the passes is supposedly a security thing. I know if change them too often or I'm away too long I forget them too. There's secure for you huh? Like the kid proof pill bottle caps, only a kid seems to be able to open them. LOL

Anyway, welcome back again.

Thank you. And welcome to you, MooreDinsmoor.

I thought it was Lunetta, before. But it may have been a variation or shortened. Like Lune, Luna, Lunnet, or similar. Since I have a different computer, email, and really a different out look from then (must've been 5 or 6 years ago) I found it fitting to recreate once I realized I couldn't remember my username, password, or the email I used. Be sure I wrote it down this time, though. 😊

This is something I used to have a big interest in, and posted about before on a few other forums. In my own opinion, I think the gods are very varied, and that the morality of one god may be very different from that of another. However, I also think that that doesn't necessarily mean the gods will share the moral principles of the human beings of this age or a specific culture, even if that god was once human (since moral principle seems to change slightly over time, and the specifics seem to develop and evolve throughout human history).  Then, there is also the thought that the gods may be amoral, but may sometimes 'mimic' human morality in order to interact with humanity or to appear more approachable to humans of whom they wish to interact with. I also like to draw a line, personally, between amorality and apathy, but this is my own opinion and experience.

What are your opinions and experiences on the matter? Feel free to challenge my opinion - I only present it with the hopes of kicking off the discussion.
