I am preparing a gift for my partner's two brothers. They are in their single digits, still don't know how to read, and are mainly going to be using this computer for minecraft.
I have an old computer I got back in 2014 that has a pretty decent graphics card. Nvidia GeForce 650 or 750 or something like that. I want to put a Linux distro on it that will be easy to set up, and easy for them to use to play minecraft and possibly some steam games. I use Manjaro and have been using Linux for a while but I'm not super adept, beyond general comfort with the command line.
So, what's my best bet to get it set up easy and quick for these two that they can play minecraft with some mods possibly and other older, less graphically intensive games I have available?
Thanks. Hope you are all well!
I'm curious as to what your paths are. I'm a Heathen personally. I've always seen Thor as a god of the working people, he wields strength that represents the power we all hold together. Freyja has guided me towards feminine liberation as well, and there's much more to it than I'll write out.
I also syncretize a bit. I've always felt connected to Lilith and I'm thinking I'll worship her the way I've worshipped my Heathen deities.
Before all of this I was raised Christian, as soon as I left the faith I went to asatru for a bit, I believed but didn't really practice in any meaningful way. Then I faded into atheism for a few years and came back to this path a few months ago.
Where's everyone else falling? What's your journey?
Hope you are all doing well, and thanks.
Who do you worship and through what framework? Are you a pagan or something else? Personally I am a Norse Heathen. At the moment I worship the Norse deities and I worship my ancestors and local wights through a Heathen format. I do have syncretist leanings and for some time have felt a calling towards a couple of Roman and Greek gods. However all my worship is done and will continue to be done through a Heathen format for the foreseeable future.
What about you? What does your faith look like? Or do you lack a faith? I am interested to know!
Who do you worship and who do you worship with?
Alongside my ancestors and local wights, I worship Freyja, Thor, Eir, Saga, Odin, and Hel at the moment. I feel the strongest connection with Freyja. She has guided me through very difficult moments in my life and has been present throughout my spiritual journey.
My worship is primarily individual, although my partner joins when they feel up to it. They're a non heathen, but enjoy being involved in my spiritual life. They use it as a time to reflect and incorporate their own ancestor veneration which takes on a much different shape than mine.
What does your hearth ritual look like?
I have created Heathenry, a safe space for Heathens or anyone interested in the path to discuss their worship, practice, and journey. Heathens are those who worship germanic deities - such as the Norse, Gothic, or Anglo Saxon - and believe in cosmic forces such as Wyrd and Orlaeg and the divine economy, aka the gifting cycle. If you are interested in the path or a follower already, please help me build a community where we can comfortably and safely share our thoughts and experiences.
