Vocation to the Fellowship of Isis

Vocation to the Fellowship of Isis

          All living things are born of the cosmic Mother goddess: so each creature, great or small, partake of her divinity. All of us are daughters and sons of the goddess, not by creation from an outside Deity, but through birth. However, to become a Priestess or Priest in the Fellowship of Isis involves agreeing to work with Isis in Her divine Plan for this earth, This may take myriad forms - Isis has 10,000 manifestations through as many Goddesses, and Osiris manifests through Gods.

          Who are these deities? As Hesiod wrote, "The gods and men are of the same race." Translating this liberally, we may regard ourselves as essentially equal with deities - but need not get arrogant! We share this distinction with leopards and rabbits and hawks...

          The Egyptians recognised this innate animism in their deification of the ungainly hippo and the elegant crocodile. Thus, devoid of self-pride and arrogance, we can learn to listen to the Deities as their priesthood - and in turn listen to those who come to us! A true member of the priesthood of Isis follows "She Who Listens." So understanding and loving with wisdom, we can truly heal, help, counsel and create.

          We Her Priesthood claim no power over others. When we are called, we come; where there is suffering, we are there. When help is needed, whether for human animal or plant, we give it. So we show forth Isis and Osiris in our unique way. We bring heaven down to earth.
