Does anyone here ever go out to a graveyard here to offer prayers for the dead? If so, how do you think one should go about praying? Do you think that they should pray to a higher power, or to the dearly departed?
Personally: I go out, with my unfinished staff and dressed in all black. I go to the graveyard, and kneel at a few graves and offer my thanks for being a member of the Earth and returning their essence to that which they've risen from.
On Full Moon nights (93-100% Full) I offer my thanks to the fundamentally good spirits. Without them, the world would be a dark and cruel place.
On New Moon nights (0-5% Full) I offer luck to the fundamentally bad spirits and wish them well in their next incarnation.
Anywho, just my thoughts.
