So, I'm new to the forum, been practicing a pagan medley since my great grand mother took the time to teach me the mountain witches way. Now I'm kind of stuck in rut per say, I still hold onto my faith in the Goddess and God but I very rarely practice ritual worship, let alone even talk about it. I still give thanks and meditate but at this point in my life in living by the dirty hands clean soul motto, I've got a wonderful family, a decent job, a small home. I suppose I'm living simply and that's good enough for me but how do I go about practicing rituals when I have nothing I really want? More stuff means more troubles and I've gotten those down to a minimum. I suppose I feel like I'm spiritually slacking after fighting a war with the cosmos to get here. Any advice?

How about thanking the Lord and Lady? Or inviting them over as friends, they are you know.

I agree with Ken Ra. Whatever your take on divinity is, keep honoring and acknowledging that. You may not be Wiccan, but a large part of that is honoring the cycles, the Moon, the Gods and so on. Every Sabbat is a Thanksgiving for us, and we try to find even little ways to feel/give magic to everyday life, even when it is not 'asking' for something.

And they don't have to be set to a certain praxis (i.e the circle casting of Wicca). A bit of meditation and quiet appreciation each day is a ritual too. Enjoying tea (or whiskey or both) among friends is a ritual. Enjoy them and just acknowledge their sacredness.

Agian I'm forced to say I had thought of that, I do regularly take time to reflect on my life and feel how honestly grateful Ian but I hadn't thought of that as a ritual event. Sounds like a little environmental tweaks would be a good idea but yea.
thanks guys.
