The power of Ancestors

Post#1 » Sat Apr 16, 2016 12:10 am

I've always been curious about ancestor worship. To worship someone who I have never had a conversation with, generations past, seems illogical.

Then my uncle died. He was a potter and artist, and I have a few of his works which I use for ritual. It's funny now how his death has completely rearranged my thinking of these vessels and pots. And with it a new understanding of ancestor "worship".

If death is the greatest transformation of Self, then everything we leave behind will be effected by this.

Praise the Sun.
We really must free ourselves from the seduction of words
