Priestly hiatus

Posted in Administrivia at 6:44 pm by

And just two days after the last post, I have run into the wall again. The last year or so my health has really taken a beating, and in the past few days I’ve had a flare-up of issues. It seems to me now that something is just not in balance, so I’m taking a step back from my commitments in order to concentrate on reducing stress, reorienting my life, and trying to recover. As part of that, I’ve stepped back from the Kemetic Orthodox priesthood again.

It sucks, because I love the work. I love the act of service, the magic of opening the shrine, of offering to my Mother. And there’s pride involved too, as I hate the feeling of failure, especially after all the struggling I’ve done recently (and the posts I’ve made about it). But I think this is the best solution for the present. And if I do return to the priesthood someday, I’ll be a better priest for having taken the time to take care of myself.

I’ll still be worshipping and working with Bast and the Netjeru and continuing to practice my religion and to explore spirituality in general, so I may still post here from time to time. I hope I do! For the moment, though, good night, and senebty (be well).
