Lesson #2 Deity
Posted 22 October 2007 - 01:59 PM
There is an excellent definition of "Chaos" in this lesson. For anyone who has ever read the myths and encountered the term "Chaos", this lessson will clear up any uncertainty relating to this topic. And it has nothing to do with dis-order! The discussion of the triune nature of the Goddess is excellent and the discussion and examples are relevant, diverse, and cross a variety of pantheons
I found the "God" discussions to be most interesting. From the duality of the God, as symbolised by the differents halves of the year, to the triune nature of the God that is found in modern Wicca (which I find to be a bit odd, quite frankly), to the quintile form of the God, an interesting and thought provoking discussion. I had NEVER heard of the quintile form of the God and I thought I had seen it alll - I am learning and I am pleased
Here, at week two, while I have seen some of this material before, what I haven't seen is making the course all the more worthwhile! Is there anyone out there that feels the same way? Current students? Former students? Future students?
Yours in the Way,

The way the Gods and Goddesses are described is a bit different. From what I experience and have learned is that Gods and Goddesses are upper and lower realms and depending who it is has different meaning for me. Everyone is different. I like to see others thoughts of how they see things or how they teach.
No matter what you learn you don't master anything. You are always learning. You said it yourself you just learned something that you did not know.
If sometimes when it feels you are not learning or getting much out of something at the end you realize what you did get out of it.
Can't wait for the next class. Interesting.

Lesson # 2 came at the perfect time for me, as I am preparing my Midsummer ritual. While most of the information was familiar,learning about the Quintile God forms was new for me. These explanations of the many God forms not only clarified things for me, but how to explain them to others. Thank you Rev. Phoenix for another great lesson!
