Last year, I worked a spell to overcome my internet addiction, and while it did wonders on the quality of my life - having had less screen time and more real time - it sort of backfired at me: my personal emails have become a spammy mess and my blog has been catatonic.
Some friends also began to think that I had decidedly become a 'cowan' and left the magical life entirely. LOL. Silly friends. I am magic.
The local occult/pagan community seems to have quieted down anyways so there are quite a few events to write about. Most of the people's interests these days are leaning towards New Age and/or 'psychic' stuff that I really couldn't care about.
As for me, I'm still going strong with my (almost) daily asana-pranayama-meditation routine which I started a year ago. But since this year started, I haven't been personally celebrating any pagan feasts even though I'm still a member of the Arn nDraiocht Fein and have yet no intention to leave. I have gotten a bit lazy on Brighid's feast day, and Spring Equinox just doesn't make sense to me. I'm not particularly keen on celebrating the coming High Days either. I still keep and maintain an altar to the orishas but my cultus to the Lord of Iron has come to a hold. So there, I'm currently in pagan-practice limbo. It's as if I suddenly got tired of following established pagan traditions. I've become so lazy that I even had to 'hire' a friend to offer to the gods for me. Still, I'm a happy plain vanilla pagan.
Oh yeah. I'm going back to Enochian magic, which will be sort of a challenge since I have given all my high magic implements away. But then, beginning from scratch also has its merits. I think I've become wiser and more experienced now to handle the Work™, and the mental and physical training I have undergone through I believe is enough to protect me from the ill-effects it may bring about. Enochian for me is an adventurer's magic - it's scary yet fulfilling.
