Here we are at Beltaine, and here we are at the Temple, and so, let's celebrate!
Beltaine is about many things, but they all add up to fulfillment. There was a god who died, and his funeral was Samhain. But, there was a child who was newborn at Yule. And we've seen him grow and go through the various stages. At Imbolc, there was the Naming for the Norse (which translates into the Christian "christening"), or the Briss for the Jewish. And then there was Ostara, which functions much as a Bar Mitzvah, indicating the first coming of age. And now, Beltaine where we see him as a fully-grown young adult, ready to take his bride!
And so, we see the promise made at Samhain being fulfilled. And here is a good time to look ahead and see what and how many fulfillments we want. We're not waiting for any deity's time, it's on the calendar. We aren't wondering about any deity's will, because it has been promised and it is going to be. As for anything about any "higher plan", this is of the highest plan!
And so, let's learn about getting fulfillment and how to deal with it when it happens.
