So once we get pure, what do we *do* to honor the Netjeru? 

*Snip*

I'd like to also discuss the theological reasons behind the ritual too such as Darkhawk has done in the other thread on purity. 



Currently, my invocations are very short, but I love the idea of doing longer ones. My ritual currently contains:

Daily:
Water offering
Incense offering.
Food offering
Henu.

Fire is offered less than daily, depending on whether I've been called into work early.

I like henu and the full henu. I think that henu should be kept, if only to show proper deference! (maybe full henu once a week or when approaching for more than just ritual?)  Tongue I know that for me, since I speak to the deities daily, I tend to  get lax in my approach, forgetting that these are not just good friends, these are GODS and must be treated as such. Henu keeps me humble in my approach, that the Names are bigger than me and must be approached thusly. 

My problem with the rituals is that I offer to two Names, both of whom have differing tastes in food offerings and incense scents. How does one approach a difference in preferences? Sataset, in the altar thread, I noticed that you mentioned having an altar to Set. He loooooves pork. For Aset, it's taboo. Although my differences are not so great (Set likes spicy, Anpu likes sweet), how do you approach differences such as these?  Huh  Smiley

I've always wanted to ask these sorts of questions - I am thrilled we have this SIG now!
