Inspired partially by Hecate - here's a list of ten things I love about practicing my religion, from the big to the not-so. I didn't include "I love Deity," because that's kind of a given...besides, "love" in the context of a list like this seems like much too small a word for how I actually feel.
That being said:
1 ~ I love that we have things like the Chocolate Ritual, the Fraggle Rock Ritual, and the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Casserole. Self-parody is pretty much nonexistent in mainstream religion.
2 ~ I love the sweat-socks/marijuana/desert smell of burning white sage.
3 ~ Along the same lines, I love how most Witches' homes all have that underlying "50 Kinds of Incense" smell that permeates everything from our clothes to our curtains.
4 ~ I love the sensation of being gently but firmly pushed to the back of my own mind that occurs at the onset of Drawing Down the Moon.
5 ~ I love the fact that even though I don't speak their language, trees talk to me and I understand perfectly.
6 ~ I love that we don't have blasphemy. Otherwise I'd be in sooooo much trouble.
7 ~ I love that when my friends and I talk, I can say things like, "Her energy was all crispy and had all these green tentacles like a hentai sex monster, and it felt like she was poking me in the third chakra," and they know exactly what I mean.
8 ~ I love that having a vagina doesn't render me inferior or less "in God's image" than someone with a penis, and that I can teach, lead, and affect the evolution of my religion regardless of biology, sexuality, or race.
9 ~ I love my athame. (The picture doesn't do it justice.)
10 ~ I love when I'm doing a Rune casting for someone who previously didn't really believe in silly things like divination, and they give me the wide-eyed "holy fuck!" look that means not only am I right, I'm scary.
