“One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters…But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.”
― Charles Baudelaire

@themixedwitch made a really interesting point about worship, and I don’t think I necessarily feel the same way, but I’ve been feeling confused about what “worship” really means anyway?? It feels like this verb that often has negative connotations. I definitely don’t worship my ancestors because they are my family, and I wouldn’t worship living relatives either. I definitely don’t worship Siddhartha Gautama, he’s a buddha but also a human being and a teacher.

I’m not sure if I would call how I interact with the orishas as “worship” or not? @theajesaysashe @rey-yemoja do you have thoughts on this?

For anyone who interacts with deities, what are yalls opinions on what “worship” means? Do you worship your deities or work with them or follow them or use some other verb to describe that?

The world is sacred, of course, it is full of gods, numina, great powers and presences. We give some of them names – Mars of the fields and the war; Vesta the fire; Ceres the grain; Mother Tellus the earth; the Penates of the storehouse. The rivers, the springs. And in the stormcloud and the light is the great power called the father god. But they aren’t people. They don’t love and hate, they aren’t for or against. They accept the worship due them, which augments their power, through which we live.
