Hope you are feel better and it is healing as it should . Nowadays moist people are more into what they are doing for want of spewed or greed and few pay heed to there ( for lack of a better words ) six sense .  More people would be safer if they paid attention to that inner voice . Keep heeding that voice .

Was it a fate that no matter what you did you would fall , some say are lives , every details have been written and no one can do anything to change them . That's one I do not believe .

Going to try and share a lesson I have (hope) learn.

      This past spring I had started putting in an herb garden in the new place I'd moved.  And I looked all around for comfrey;  now where to be found.  Later during the summer my son in law and grandson made a trip to our old home up north.  I had thought of getting a hold of them to go dig up my old plant at my home up there.  Time passed and forgot to.  Then learn my daughter bio - father was coming for a visit and again the thought of asking him to go get it for me. But dismissed it as I didn't want to bother him.  During the year I had a couple of quick visions. One was of me walking down hill to my daughters home and falling and breaking my leg. That on was fairly strong so I paid attention to that one and was very careful when I went down to her place.  The second one was of me in the hospital and my daughter's father standing over me with a concern look.  That one was a quick one and only seen it twice where the other one was several times.  One would think that by my age one would be able to connect the dots. .... Well the father came to visit and brought one of my daughter's nieces along.  And one morning I had decided to be nice and take him a cup of coffee.  We both are early raiser and he slept out in the camper so as not to bother any one.  So while it is still darl out and wearing flip flops and two cups of coffee I started out when a thought came passing through to go the other way follow the path.  But no I had to take the short cut across the wet leaves down the hill.  And that is when I slipped felt my ankle break and down I went. Thankfully there was and has been no pain.  That happen almost a month ago and it has given me time being laid up to do a lot of thinking.  And that is to start listening to that inter voice, spirit, god/goddess, gut feeling, what ever one might call it.  Also thinking it was meant for me to break my ankle, As it didn't happen the way the vision showed me and I took extra care in going that way down the hill.  As to why for sure it was meant to happen I don't know yet.  But I have learned a lot and a lot has been revealed and learning more each day.  I don't feel sad about this and as strange as it sounds I feel kind of blessed about this happening.  And so freaking blessed for no pain.  As there is 8 breaks total.  .... ummm maybe it's time for another reading to get a take on all this.
any ways just wanted to share.

Have to take issue with your assertion that Henry VIII was mad.

I don't know... I've been married 4 times...if I had to create my own religion to get a divorce, I'd be more than "mad", I'd be seriously pissed... :-p

I was going to head another direction about him being pretty pissed at the two ex-wives he had executed, but you took a similar path.  Nicely done!

Whoops, I did some research on the ways Stregheria and Stregoneria contrast.  It does make more sense that Stregoneria, or Italian folk magic,would be heavily influenced by Catholicism. Stregheria appears to be more Neopagan.
At any rate, Grimassi's take is very new age, so let the reader beware.

"New Age" is being very polite.  There are those that refer to those writings as the self-motivated, systematic rape of Italian culture for personal gain.

Have to take issue with your assertion that Henry VIII was mad. Ruthless, yes. Amoral, indeed. Selfish and spoilt, certainly. But there are no contemporary texts to cast doubt on his sanity. In fact, he laid the foundations for paths Elizabethan golden age. If you are really looking for mad English monarchs, take a look at Henry VI, or even George III.

True enough. I should probably have put "mad" in quotes. Though the whole Tudor bloodline - and in fact probably most of the Royal Families of Europe at the time - had a tendency towards flamboyance at least, if not certifiable nuttiness. One notes, in many cases, subtle and not-so-subtle physical and mental characteristics of repeated inbreeding. From the mid-19th century onwards this tendency seems to have been recognised as deleterious and fresh DNA was brought in from the lesser aristocracy.

 Henry VIII simply had his enemies hung, drawn and quartered and his discarded wives beheaded - a messy business. Elizabeth I of England was probably the sanest of the lot, but even she could fly into spectacular rages at times, if anyone crossed her.

Alchymist.

Been on a quest, you might say.

Do I offend? Well, it's hard to say anything without offending someone, be it only

Great to see you back...

IMO, a Christian isn't defined by membership in any religion or church, unless they so choose; the only difference between Protestant churches and the Catholic church is that one was created for control, and the other was created at the convenience of a mad king, to avail himself of the opportunity to divorce his current wife and snag another who was hotter and younger. 

In some ways Protestants are even less credible to me... they took a book that was already flawed and then proceeded to reinterpret it and distribute it according to their own agendas, to make it "clearer" to the faithful... 

I'll never understand:

if a god that is timeless, nameless, non-gendered, and all powerful, what use would it have for human religious politics, and what need would it have for designated people to get it's point across?

What need of Biblical canon if all is written within the heart of the seeker?  There are many ways to express it.  The Hindus and American Indians see is as a point of universal connection of all things to each other.  In Abrahamic belief systems it's about being created in the image of G-d, with one universal point of connection: the soul.  I believe the soul/spirit is both the image of G-d and a point of universal connection. But that's just me.

Sorry for the derail...

Our public Samhain ritual actually went smoothly; a circle was cast, the directions were called, the ancestors were invoked, chants were chanted, drums were beaten, the Druids and Voodoo people did their thing, a repast was enjoyed by all, draughts of home-brewed mead were drunk; no mobs of fundies with torches and pitchforks were in attendance, all of us made it home safely; so - a successful ritual, altogether.

Wish you all could have been there..... but then the church hall might have become a bit crowded......

Blessed Be everyone - looking forward to Yule......
