Building Community

This community is fractured. It is torn in places that must be mended if it is to continue. Do you think the ancients didn’t disagree? They each had their own Gods and Goddesses, festivals, calendars and their own feast days. Each Nome had their own way of doing things.

This is normal for a group of people working together for a certain goal. This is healthy. Creation is divided in parts. It is plurality born of oneness. Creation is of a multitude. Difference. Diversity. These are what creation upholds. Everything created is unique.

Oneness. Unity. These are wonderful when done well. When many work as one. Many things are done. Many things are accomplished.

But for many to work as one there must be a common ground. Are We not enough for you? Can all Our devotees not work together? Must is always be the same as your way? Must every ritual be as you dictate? Can you not participate in a Wiccan-style ritual that honors Us respectfully? Or a Kemetic one from another House? As long as We are respected and honored and given offerings, We are pleased. What does it matter to you, the outsider?

This ritual is not of your House. Does that matter? Are We not loved? Are We not honored? Are We not given offerings? Are We not respected?

If We are, then that is fine. If not, then let Us deal with it. Let Us deal with it, My child.

We will not build a House on shaky ground. What of your House, My child? What of your House?

Why do you come seeking answers when your House is not in order? Where are your leaders, dear child? Where are your leaders? Are they respected? Are they given proper credit for their work? Are their credentials honored? Their lineages?

How can a community grow without stable leaders? How do you hope to learn without them? These are people We have asked to do the work they are doing. You do not do this work because they do it.

You were not asked. They were.

They do Our work. They do Our work.

Why are your words tearing them down? Why do your words disrespect them? Why do your words dishonor their work?

They do the work. You don’t.

You weren’t asked to. They were.

They do their work. They do Our work. They give you tools to honor Us. And this is your response? These words spewed about with lies and half-truths? These words spewed about carelessly? Thoughtless words. Careless words. Hurtful words. Words filled with deceit and malice.

These are not the words of a community in ma’at. These are not the words of the people who should be honoring Us.

Disagreement is fine, dear child. Questioning is fine, dear child.

But tearing them down does not build you up. It tears you down with them. For if there are no leaders to guide, then who will follow? Even the ones without a House follow the ones who write the books.

So where does that leave everyone? With a broken home whose walls are shattering from the noise. What is important here? What is important here?

Where is your foundation, dear child? Where is your foundation?

Where are We in your life? Are We in your heart? Are We in your shrines? Where are We?

There is no room for Us in a House that cannot feed the Holy. How can holiness manifest in a place filled with such entropy? How can the Ka-Power flow?

What is this, dear child? What are you building?

Are you building a community that will come together and be strong? Or are you building a community that will tear itself apart?

What are you building, dear child? What are you building? And with whom are you building it?

For whom are you building it?

Yourself or the Gods?
