• Io, Hermes!
    Sacred Son or Arcadia,
    Father to Pan and lover
    of Krokos,
    Hermes Pompaios
    be my guide in all things.

    Fill my heart
    with glad tidings
    and my steps with joy;
    enliven my tongue,
    hone my wit:
    Hermes Dotor Eaon,
    smile upon me and mine.

    Io, Hermes!
    Dolios,
    curious monotheism
    of a generation,
    in Your darkest heart
    You could not condone
    these perpetrations
    in Your Name.
    Hermes Epikthonis,
    pray for us all.

    The obligation is complete.

  • Last night I received a message via Facebook from a person I have known since middle school. We've had some pretty public disagreements in the past, and frankly I saw this coming: she un-friended me because in her words "I can not be friends with someone who is an enemy of God."

    My first thought was that I had gotten an upgrade.

  • For many centuries, Greece and Rome dominated the Mediterranean world. By the beginning of the Common Era, the spreading Roman Empire had assimilated the old Alexandrine territories, and with them, the tastes and values of the homoerotic Greek culture. That culture shaped the sensibilities of the Empire until the ascendancy of the Christian church. The complex relationship between Greece and Rome is mirrored in the intense love relationship between the Emperor Hadrian and Antinous, which reached its climax when the Emperor deified Antinous following the youth's death in the year 130.

  • I have felt the Love of the Great Mother,

  • Adoration of Thoth, Son of Ra, Moon,
    Of beautiful rising, Lord of appearings, Light of the Gods,
    By the Prince, Count, Fan-bearer on the King's right,
    Great Troop-commander, Royal Scribe, Horemheb, whose word is right and true,
    he says:
    Hail to You, Moon, Thoth,
    Bull in Hermopolis, dweller in Hesret,
    Who makes way for the Gods!
    Who knows the secrets,
    Who records their expression,
    Who distinguishes one speech from another,
    Who is judge of everyone.
    Keen-faced in the Ship-of-millions,
    Courier of mankind,
    Who knows a man by his utterance,
    Who makes the deed rise against the doer.
    Who contents Ra,
    Advises the Sole Lord,
    Lets Him know whatever happens;
    At dawn He summons in Heaven,
    And forgets not yesterday's report.

    Who makes safe the night-bark,
    Makes tranquil the day-bark,
    With arms outstretched in the bow of the ship.
    Pure-faced when He takes the stern-rope,
    As the day-bark rejoices in the night-bark's joy,
    At the feast of crossing the sky.
    Who fells the fiend,
    Sunders western lightland.
    The Ennead in the night-bark worships Thoth,
    They say to Him:
    "Hail, Son of Ra,
    Praised of Ra, Whom the Gods applaud!"
    They repeat what Your ka(the life-force) wishes,
    As You make way for the place of the bark,
    As You act against that fiend:
    You cut off his head, You break his ba(the soul),
    You cast his corpse in the fire,
    You are the God Who slaughters him,
    Nothing is done without Your knowing,
    Great one, son of a Great One, Who came from Her limbs,
    Champion of Horakhty,

    Wise friend in Heliopolis,
    Who makes the place of the Gods,
    Who knows the mysteries,
    Expounds their words.

    Let us give praise to Thoth,
    Straight plummet in the scales,
    Who repulses unrighteousness,
    Who accepts him who leans not on crime.
    The Tjati(the Prime Minister or Vizier) Who settles cases,
    Who changes turmoil to peace;
    The scribe of the mat Who keeps the book,
    Who punishes crime,
    Who accepts the submissive!
    Who is sound of arm,
    Wise among the Ennead,
    Who relates what was forgotten.
    Counselor to him who errs,
    Who remembers the fleeting moment,
    Who reports the hour of night,
    Whose words endure forever,
    Who enters the Dwat(the Netherworld),
    knows Those in it,
    And records them in the list

  • Hail to Thee, All-Father
    Guardian at the Gate.
    I come before Thee
    armed with oak and steel.
    I come bearing sweet perfumes,
    Bread and wine for sacrifice.
    Wisdom is yours, Sky-Father,
    Strength is yours, Thunderer,
    Splendor is yours, Bolt-Thrower.
    We have called Thee by many names:
    Odin, Indra, Zeus;
    You are the All-Father:
    Hunter, Protector, Lord.
    I invoke Thee, All-Father,
    That I might share in Thy Wisdom;
    I invoke Thee, All-Father,
    That I might partake of Thy Strength;
    I invoke Thee, All-Father,
    That I might witness Thy Splendor.
    Thee, Thee, I invoke, All-Father;
    I am Become Thee.

  • Gentle Hermes, most kind,
    friend of man and woman,
    guide to Orpheus and Eurydice
    and protector of Persephone;
    you come to each of us
    as we begin our descent,
    prithee come in comely form
    to those who know Thee not.
    May thy commanding staff
    be a symbol of comfort
    to those afraid to loose
    these mortal bonds.
    Hermes, Anubis,
    I pray for my honored dead
    but also the lost and the lonely,
    for the wandering spirits
    and all those who have noone to pray for them.
    In your names, I pray for them.
    Hermanubis,
    may you be a constant and gentle guide
    to all those whom you lead.
