The Feri current is natural and does not stand above any other current but it is distinctive. The current is formed by the distinctive secret names of the Gods, distinctive core practices and specific lore. It is this distinctiveness that marks the Feri current as different from the current of other traditions. Practitioners of Feri generate mana for the current, and the current returns it in kind and form. The more powerful the mana, the greater you tap into the current, the more powerful your craft.
This current is passed nominally through these tools, practices and lore. But the greatest and fullest transmission and connection to this current is through receiving The Names during the initiation. Not much can be said of this, it is sacred and not to be lightly discussed.
The Feri current is wild or better put untamed. The current stands beside the domestic conventions of expectation. Feri is fiercely independent in that regard. The Great Star Goddess is a Virgin because she needed no other to create. Creation is self-evident, approval is not necessary.
Ecstatic and sensual, the Feri current holds a great respect for the physical world. When the Feri current courses through the body, it makes clear how wondrous and pleasurable life is. Life wills itself from the sheer desire to do so. Desire and will make manifest the physical.
The current possesses an excitatory nature, regarded as sexual. It excites the senses and, in a purely energetic form, the frequency is both high and slow. Feri is deep yet quick.
Often described as wiry in nature, the current is difficult to grasp and even more difficult to hold. Practitioners of Feri develop a comfort with the nature of paradox. Feri is clean and crisp but also dark and musky. Feri is both studied and experiential.
Well, I could write several more paragraphs on my musings on the nature of this current. The point I want to make here is that this current is distinctive from the other currents one might walk through, and that it is specific to a certain cultural set. This set is defined by the lore, The Names, and a specific set of working tools.
As distinctive as this current is, it cannot be described in a linear fashion but can be defined through poesy. There must be a period of exposure and experience to fully understand the subtle and rich nature of this current. Finally to make full and true use of this current requires a singular devotion to the unique nature of the Feri tradition.
Strong deviation from the cultural set is a deviation from the current. Change The Names and you change the current. Change the tools of practice and you change the current. Change the central mysteries as embodied in our lore and you change the current. Change the current and the mana just tastes different.
