More on Dionysian Purity Part III: Getting down and dirty

“Once you’ve hit on something that works you should stick with it so that that set of ritual actions will accumulate the power and weight of tradition through repetition. Don’t worry if your practices seem piecemeal and unlike what the ancients did because there’s no way to perfectly recreate what they did. You may have a proper replica oil lamp and incense-burner but do you have a black puppy you’re willing to cut in half? No? I didn’t think so. Besides, innovation and cobbling stuff together is exactly what the ancients did. ”
