A Month of Written Devotion for Melek Ta’us, the Peacock Angel
Faith is a tricky subject; there are at least two things it can mean. You can have faith that something exists, even if you don’t have proof. This is what most people mean, or at least seem to mean, when they talk about religious faith.
Then there’s keeping faith with–keeping promises and commitments, fulfilling obligations, that sort of thing. This is where I’m a bad polytheist, or at least a sloppy one. I don’t (usually) have trouble with the first kind of faith, but I often have trouble with the second.
Part of the problem is that I don’t know much about Melek Ta’us except what I’ve learned in Feri classes. I’m not sure what to do, to keep faith. Most of the sources I’ve found so far are either generically Feri/Pagan, or very outdated (and often blatantly racist) studies of Yezidi religion.
I am doubtless over thinking it. Keep it simple, yeah?
