In what relationship do you see yourself to your deity/ies?

- Do you see any hierarchy between you and your deity/ies?
- Is he/she or are they like a parent/parents? (In what way?)
- Or more like a friend/friends? (How so?)
- Or is he/she/are they like a business partner/business partners? (In what regard?)

How does that influence your worship?

I refer often to my ‘parentage’ but I don’t mean that so much as a description of relationship, but rather as a description of genetics. I am my ‘parents’ in a very real way: my soul was made of their energies, by their wills. They spoke my name and brought me into existence. Worship…or whatever word one would choose to define an active relationship to the divine… becomes a bit of a nonissue. I am true to them because if I am not, I am not true to myself.  To cease service I would have to cease 'being'.

What do you give to your deity/ies or do for him/her/them and what do you recive from her/him/them?

I know I have posted about it before, so I won’t retell the whole story here, but they have told me more than once that I am valuable to them because I create, and in the act of my creativity, I further ‘the creation’ itself. I also choose to continue existing and, by the very nature of that act, I oppose uncreation… which is their goal as well.

I get permission to be me, comfort from knowing I am not alone inside myself, and a reason to exist. Since that is all that I asked for...I guess I have received my heart’s desire... or something.  Undecided
