Security setting for community

How does this sound? I will keep "anonymous posting" enabled. So if you want to keep your privacy, you can do so that way.
(Log out, then post. It will say "anonymous" instead of your screen name when you post)

The rest of you who don't care, can post normally.

How does that work?

Kore/Persephone - The Story

Let me start by saying this isn't "it"...meaning it isn't right, complete, totally ready - and I have shamelessly stolen phrases (and entire sentances) from other books, sites, and places. Which is why I have held off on posting it.

I was talking this over with a friend who said "Well of course it isn't finished...you are just starting in your meditations, aren't you? It will never be finished, you will learn new things and have new insights all the time. Isn't that the whole point of that LJ you are creating? But you do need to START! So post the damn thing already!"

With that spirit....Here it is!
(And if you have a version of your own, please post it in the comments if you would like to share!)

PSA - VA Pentacle Quest

I'm sure that many of you know about how the VA has refused to approve the Wiccan symbol for use on headstones for fallen Veterans. Meaning...the are Pagan Veterans across the country who are in unmarked graves. What their families are going through can't even be described.

What you may not know is that the VA is trying a new tactic to block the Pentacle from being approved. Changing the rules on the approval process so they can deny any group they feel is "frivilous". Guess what they think Paganism is? We have 7 days left to make comments to the VA noting that we do not agree with the proposed rules. After March 20th, they close off the time to make comments. Make your voice heard! I'm only asking for 5 minutes of your time, and you can do it from your computer.

Click on the link below. Follow the directions. I have even included a copy of the comments I made. Use them, or do your own. Don't just write, "I'm for the Pentacle, dude." Those comments will be thrown out as not valid to the discussion. We need to write why we do not agree with the new rules.

If the link doesn't work - tell me. I'm not the most LJ savy person! :D

Please take the time to vote

My original intent was to have this LJ kept open so others could see it and jump in with me if the Goddess so moved them. However, not everyone may feel that way. So I would like your input on if the meditations should be locked, or kept open. While this poll will not be the deciding factor, I will take it strongly into account. If you feel strongly one way or another, please post why.



Poll #945248 Security Level of the Community

Do you wish the meditation posts to be viewable to all, or to be locked to members only?

Anyone can view the meditations
2(18.2%)
Members of the community should be the only ones who can view the meditations
2(18.2%)
I don't care either way
7(63.6%)


PS...the Story of Kore/Persephone is still being edited. I will get it out in the next few days. :D

Posting Guidelines

Posting Guidelines

1. Be polite. We won’t all agree on everything – and that is good.

2. Keep all responses/suggestions/revelations to a meditation in the same thread. I know I will go back to the threads time and again as I learn and experience new things.

3. You can post threads. I will review them just to make sure they are on topic and I will put them up if they are, I will email you the reason why if they aren’t. If you have books, websites, resources that pertain to Kore/Persephone and want to share those, great!

4. No SPAM. Unless it is the tasty meat in a can.


I will keep this open for comments. If you have questions about any of this or you have suggestions, please let me know.
