My only suggestion would be to dig up research though sites dedicated to him, mythology books, etc. Then experiment with what you learn. Meditate on him, talk to him, make offerings and see what happens.

On a side note I've seen people discuss him on other sites who say he and his domain are the most misunderstood by non followers.  One person had said he isn't so bad as gods go, he just got stuck with what most might consider a shit job.

I would have to totally agree with you. It is amazing how people will flip from one religion to another one. I wonder if it is just to please the people they are with at the time? BB! MW

You know what, I wouldn't be surprised. There are a lot of people who will bend any-which-way to be with someone, change everything to fit in and then abandon it all when it either doesn't seem right with them or they get pushed aside for not knowing themselves or being themselves. Eventually others seem to figure that out and step back when they see it. With that in mind I  cant be terribly surprised it happens. I only hope they find something that fits enough that they can stick with, to find and be their true self eventually.

i would think your best answer to this questions is to ask him. He would be the one to tell you what he likes and doesn't like. Good luck! BB! MW

I really do believe some people can be eclectic and respectful, studying more carefully certain aspects of various religious materials and do so honestly, however I also feel some others really to get way too light and flip in attitude when "visiting" each religious ideal.

Very much bravo! When the words "Religious Tourist" comes to mind for me, it seems more of a willy nilly, flighty testing of various religions without really giving any one of them the time or effort in real study and practice they are due.  I think we've all seen or know people who are buddhist this week or month and Jewish next, bouncing from one to the next, discarding the old and fully submerging to the best of their own knowledge as they can.

This is for a course I'm on. I was wondering if anybody knew anything on why Greek Goddesses are often coupled with a God in mythology, and if they could point me towards any places I could find out more on this/any sources (even good 'ol wikipedia would be fine). I tried a few google searches and couldn't unearth anything specifically, so thought I'd put it up here for anyone's contribution. I'm mostly looking for information on why Greek Goddesses are often married to a God, although possible progression of this through time would also be useful. Thanks :)

Blessed Be!

Hello everyone :)

I was just wondering if any of you's work with Hades? What are your experiences with working with him? What libations should you offer him if he chooses to be your Patron? I'm asking because he has requested that he would like to be my Patron and I would like to honour him in the best way possible. Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Bravo... Bravo...Bravo...Alchymist! And VERY well said. I couldn't agree with you more. I do have a very hard time conforming to what other religions and people of those religions dedicate. I ended that spiritual path almost 12 years ago. Yeah I have had my doubts just like Nymree has. I have gone back hoping I would find that little bit of something that would shed some kind of light on that type of religion. It just isn't there for me. When I go out to my circle its like coming home every time! So I think I will stick with what I have found here. Even if I am the only one that understands what I believe.

Thanks again Alchymist. I appreciate your words very much. BB! MW

Religious and/or spiritual eclecticism has an honourable pedigree. Almost all religions and spiritual practises have built on pre-existing traditions. Gerald Gardner's Wicca, for example, incorporated many elements from Crowley's OTO (or at least it did before Doreen Valiente removed some of them), mediaeval magical grimoires, notable the Keys of Solomon (so-called), Freemasonry, perhaps some bits and pieces from genuine but half-remembered earlier Witchcraft traditions, woodcraft, naturism and possibly even odds and ends of Indonesian magic picked up from Gardner's sojourn in what was then Malaya. The Golden Dawn was, by any objective standard, a mishmash, incorporating Quabalah, John Dee's Enochian studies, elements of Egyptian religion and even some bits and pieces of Hindu and Buddhist traditions (notably the Tattvas). Good heavens, even some parts of the Old Testament of the Bible, especially Genesis and the Song of Solomon, derive from earlier Babylonian and Canaanite religious traditions.

It was the 19th century poet William Blake who said "I must create my own system, or be enslav'd by another man's". So I wouldn't worry too much about other people's disapproval of so-called "religious tourism". If others want to stick with one pre-existing tradition, unadventurous and uncreative as it may be, well, let them; but they should at least extend the same courtesy to we few who possess the Questing Gene and cannot be content with what we feel is a mind-numbing orthodoxy. We must each choose our own Path, whether a broad well-trodden highway or our own twisting forest trail.  By all means, create your own spiritual path; you'll be in excellent company.

Blessed Be Nymree, and all who follow "The Road Less Travelled."

Alchymist.
