It is not always my fault

Age Group: Adult
(Phaedra) Hymn to Hecate
Oh Artemis- (Hecate-Selene) queen of the groves Regina Nemorum, thou who in solitude lovest thy mountain haunts, and who upon the solitary mountains art alone held holy, change for the better these dark ill-omened threats. Oh Great Goddess of the woods & groves, bright orb of heaven, glory of the night by whose changing beams the universe shines clear. Oh three formed Hecate Lo, Thou art at hand, favoring our undertaking. Conquer the unbending soul of stern inquisitors and lay judges; may he be compliant, give ear unto our prayer. Soften his fierce heart; may he learn to love, may he feel answering flames. Ensnare his mind; grim, hostile, fierce, may ye turn him back to the fealty of love. To this end direct thy powers, so thou wear a shining face (Selene) the Moon, and the clouds all scattered, fare on with undimmed horns; so when thou drivest thy car through the nightly skies may no witcheries prevail to drag thee down. And may no shepard make boast over thee! Oh daughter of Helios (sun) Mena (moon) of many turnings, nurse of all! Oh Selene (moon) driver of the silver car!
If Thou art Hecate of many names, if in the night Thou dost shake Thy mystic torch in brand-carrying hand, come night-wanderer, nurse of puppies, because the nightly sound of the hurrying dogs is thy delight with Thy mournful whimpering.
By the Goddess I worship most of all, my chosen helper Hecate, who dwells in the inner chamber of my house. None of them shall pain my heart and smile at it!
Now summoned by my sacred rites, Do thou Hecate, orb of the night, put on thy most evil face and come, threatening in all thy forms. The hour is at hand AO Phoebe (Hecate-Selene for thy sacred rite
Be near Goddess in answer to our call hear now our prayers!
Author's Notes: The Master said; “To lead to war a people that has not been properly taught is wasting them.” -Analects
1. O Vast and distant heaven, whom we Father
and Mother call, on Thee I cry.
Say why these ills on me excessive fall
Oppressive, vast, my misery, though
2. The first small lie contains the rest,
When slanderers fill our monarch’s breast,
Ills grow and never are redressed.
Would he but trust the good.
Wrongs soon must be redressed
I know they must.
3. His frequent covenants show him weak.
Wrongs grow from cozening words they speak.
He trusts the rouges that lie and sneak
And make things worse.
Their duties shirked, their words so meek,
Prove but a curse
4. With the work of some great mind;-
A temple by true king designed
Or plans by sagest men outlined
I’m in a fog
Round common schemes my way I wind,
Like hare and dog.
5. As timber soft in carvers hand
Assumes the shape he may command,
So common speech to understand,
I well may claim.
Those talkers, flowing, artful, grand,
Are sons of shame.
6. And who are they? On yonder stream
They dwell; and void of strength they seem..
From men so bloated who would dream of martial force?
They and theirs may madly
Scheme, and fair the worse! -Shih part II Book V. IV.
An' it harm None-
It is not always my fault, and I am not always wrong.
I WILL, probably, do it, again, and again, especially if I like it,
Not because I'm an addict, but because I am HUMAN.
I WILL continue to pray for those who are ill.
I WILL continue to bless those in need.
I WILL continue to help those less fortunate than myself.
I WILL continue to honor the gods, and as a goddess I may expect to be honored in return.
I WILL continue to honor MY ancient ancestors.
I WILL the SPIRIT to be with me to go to enlightenment.
I WILL continue to be mind-full that danger is always present.
I WILL continue to be unafraid, because I know that fear does not exist.
And I WILL continue to give back to others the EVIL they inflict upon me.
I WILL NOT worship evil.
Because evil= hurt + evil = hate + evil = cruel and evil = Kill + evil = perversion + evil = delusion.
I WILL follow the correct colour,
I WILL walk the middle way.
I WILL be guided by my HIGHER POWER.
O GREAT SPIRITS I WILL continue to bless thee too!

Watch the Zeitgeistmovingforward2011 movie on line, and take notes, read between the lines. The deliberate, systematic, selective extermination of America's common people is well under way by our own government!!
