Bessus Nouiogalation (BNG) lays out a template for daily rites following the Coligny Calendar, in honor of our Toutâdêuoi. This helps reinforce the first of the Trirextoues Bessous, Dugie Dêuoi – “Honor the Dêuoi (Gods),” particularly in relation to Erissiâ (piety). It also fosters a greater understanding and awareness of the Coligny Calendar cycle.
For my daily dedmatâ, I decided to offer up a line of poetry each night. I already write regularly, so this seemed a fitting way to do something specific with a talent I already have, to foster closeness with the Toutâdêuoi. After lighting candles, turning on the fountain, and spending a few minutes in meditation, I open myself up to the energy of the Toutâdêuoi or dêuoi I am looking to connect with. Sometimes phrases came through; sometimes smells or sensations or visuals; sometimes I went with the prinni (staves) I had pulled from them to coalesce a line for them. I’m recording them all in a line-a-day journal, which is working out very well so far.
In any case, I intend to, after each month is over, post the poetry I’ve written. This may take the form of breaking it out by each day; breaking it out by dêuoi; or I may come up with another creative way to present it in the future. That’s the beauty of going back to compile all the lines at the end of the month – the overall message can be surprising, obvious, marvelous.
I hope you enjoy.
