Temple Illuminatus

One of the traditions of Beltane is to put out all fire, those of hearth & home at dusk & to rekindle them from the communal fire at dawn. The idea that we all warm ourselves from a common fire is missing in today’s communities and we badly need to find it again. We have become a collection of individuals unable or unwilling to acknowledge that what affects one affects all, unwilling to give up even a tiny bit of me for the common good. We are paying the price for this in so many ways.

Who do we turn to when life challenges become overwhelming? Who provides the necessities of life when we are struggling? More & more it is less & less people who help to provide.  In a time of intense need fewer & fewer give to charity. Food banks are begging for food. Locally Food Bank of the Rockies estimate that they need 45 tons of food for the next month. They have been promised 15.

 

So what do we do? We can do little things. Organize a block party in you neighborhood, a floor dinner in you apartment, speak to your neighbors. Buy 8 days worth of food every week & donate a days worth. Volunteer 4 hours a month to your choice of charity. We need to take a lead in rekindling the communal fire.

I have bought the extra day of food to go to my local food bank for about 25 years now, I’m a volunteer teacher for Project Literacy & I’ve tried, with no success so far, to organize a floor dinner.
