Ancestor’s Invocation for Ostara
The prayer for this Rite is about re-birthing personal responsibility.
We are here today to encourage personal responsibility. Who better to have laid that foundation than you.
The ancestor’s of the land. Who taught us how to walk in balance with the land. The Iroquois Confederacy says that we should consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations. It is our responsibility to act responsible in all that we do, but especially where it concerns our very mother, for future generations.
The ancestor’s of our blood. Our families and our friends who came before us. We learn from their mistakes, we learn from their triumphs. We try to live in their shadow with integrity and honor as a reflection of the environment, lessons, and lineage in which we grew up. You have brought our path here to where we are now, and for that we honor you.
The ancestor’s of our mind. Our heros and our legends across the ages. Those who have inspired us, those who have helped shape and mold us into who we are constantly growing to become. Your teachings and your influences have given us a direction that we wish to go. Marcus Aurelius says that man should be upright, not be kept upright. He goes on to say that a man’s worth is no greater than his ambitions. May we honor those teachings by becoming the best version of ourselves.
Great Ancestor’s, may our actions honor you.
