30-Day Devotional for Loki: Day 22

Question: What quote, poem, or piece of writing do you think Loki resonates strongly with?

I have a bit of an obsession with quotes, so I have several pinterest boards dedicated solely to quotes. One of those boards contains quotes related to Loki. So, here are some of those quotes that I feel work best for the question today:

Don't lie...U know this can be true at times, boo! #Quotes

This one is pretty self-explanatory. Loki is a god that dispels illusions, and that is not normally a comfortable process.

Always been a storm...

This is definitely one that I feel resonates strongly with how I perceive Loki, as he is always part of the liminal, and that is not a quiet or calm place.

Our real discoveries come from chaos... #author #writer #quote

Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favorite authors – he wrote Fight Club, Lullaby, Survivor, Choke, and several other books that fall into the category of transgressive fiction. If there is any particular author that I think would jive well with Loki it would be Palahniuk, as the man essentially created an entirely new genre of fiction. Palahniuk never shies away from even the most controversial of topics, and he doesn’t spare readers from any nitty-gritty details.

That said, this quote from him definitely seems like the way Loki’s knowledge comes to us – through the experience of living, which often requires we act in stupid ways until we figure out the smart ways through the situations we encounter.

While I have many more quotes on my Pinterest board, these are the ones that resonate the most with me today. What other quotes do you think I should add?

Requesting Quotes of a Polytheistic Nature

One of my guilty pleasures is browsing Pinterest for quotes, but there is a decided lack of quotes about Polytheism that are positive rather than calling us all primitive and backwards. I’m determined to put together a collection of quotes around Polytheism in an imgur album so that I can then upload them to Pinterest.

You can find the album here: http://imgur.com/gallery/ghXDb

I’m looking for quotes about Polytheism, about being a Polytheist, and quotes that come from the Gods via various literature sources. Anything/everything that deals with the multiplicity of the Gods – that’s what I’m looking to put in this album.

I’m sick and tired of being told that my beliefs are backwards/primitive because I happen to honor multiple gods, and I’m sure there are other polytheists who are sick of it, too. There’s only so much that social media can do to promote the intellectual rigor of polytheism, but every little bit helps.

So comment with your favorite quotes from your gods, about your gods, or about polytheism in general. Let’s get some more positive vibes going in the social media arena.
