So it has been a while since I posted here and thought I would re-introduce myself. I would like this journal to have a spiritual focus and help it stay on that course. It will be my thoughts and musings on my spiritual life and in no way reflects the attitudes of the organizations I am a member of.
First off I am a 30-something gay man living in Western Illinois. I live with my boyfriend of almost 6 years, and we have a 2 year old pug. His name is Roscoe, and he is super cute. I work as a registered nurse by profession. Currently I am the assistant director of nursing at a 210 bed long term care facility.
I am a Freemason. I began my journey late last year, and right now have my 2nd degree Fellowcraft. I am part of a Lodge with a long history and resides in a beautiful temple. I decided to join Masonry because I wanted fellowship with men of like mind, wanting to build character and morality, and be outstanding members of society.
I am a member of the House of Netjer of the Kemetic Orthodox faith. I have been with the House since 2007, and currently am a relativley new w’ab priest of Wesir. A w’ab priest is a priest who tends a shrine to one of the Names of Netjer. This one being dedicated to my spiritual father, Wesir (known in Greek as Osiris).
I am also a Vodouisant and hounsi senp in a vodou house in Chicago. My vodou spirits, no matter how seperate I keep them from my Kemetic gods, seems to flow into my Kemetic faith. I have several spirits I serve and keep a few altars for them. I generally work with them everyday in some way. I see them as spirits that serve the gods in their various aspects and it works well with my faith.
I think this is enought for starters. Soon I will start discussing other insights and thoughts I have been having. So if anyone reads this…enjoy!
