What's Your Relationship Like With Set/Seth?:)
« on: May 16, 2013, 03:37:18 am »


Exactly what the title of this thread states,I am just curious to know what type of relationship those people who work with Seth have,and how they are in that relationship.I guess having a somewhat hot-and-cold relationship with Set himself,I find it confusing oftentimes than not,so maybe starting this thread could somehow provide some insights on the tricky situation I'm experiencing (which I will further discuss,if someone actually replies to this threadxD).
Of course,I also Googled this matter before posting and some really amusing answers came up from all sorts of people.A woman was even claiming that her boyfriend was possessed by Set and stuff because "He loves her so much"...not that it's credible,but it also got me thinking:Does Set have romantic relationships with some of his followers nowadays?If you're one of them,well then...could you please enlighten me on the subject?If you don't mind.:o
I'm looking forward to the replies...you guys would reply,right?*positively raising fists up*:D:I would also like,if you'd let me,to apologize for any ignorance I might show or have shown in this thread.I'm new to the forums, and somewhat still new to these stuff.

I belong to Set, whom I call Neb.y (my Lord) and am happy to answer the questions that I can.

Yes, he does.  What type of enlightening are you looking for?

Whew.For a moment,I thought no one was going to answer my silly question.So when I saw someone reply,I was like *huge sighs of relief*.:D:

Um,VeggieWolf?What do you mean when you say "you belong with him"?Is that romantically,worship-type of relationship or more than what I'm actually thinking.Again,I apologize for my ignorance.:o
As for the "enlightenment" part I mentioned,you said that,"yes",he does have those kind of relationship with humans as well.I asked this for first,I want to confirm that I still haven't lost my head or something.:hdsk::D:
It's because when I met Seth two years ago, I instantly felt affinity for him in the...erm,well,friendly AND romantic kind of way.:o:hdsk:I could swear I really tried stopping the feelings even if it meant something deep inside my soul twisting in pain and heartbreak.For many,MANY times I tried to deny the connection I was feeling,thinking I've gone nutso(still having problems like that until now...at least a bit).
Especially when I read about many other's confessions of adoration for him.I was also thinking of all these other humans that say "I'm in that kind of relationship with Him" and I just can't help but be confused more and stuff.Won't I,like,hurt the other women who also love Him if I continue feeling these kind of FEELINGS?
What makes me more confused is that,I have definitely no idea why He seems to show affinity towards me as well.Honestly,everything He is,his very personality...I've heard someone say He is definitely not "rainbows and cupcakes" ...but me,I could be described as someone who is like,"rainbows and cupcakes".I'm childlike in my personality(IDK if it's because I'm a Leo,hahaha.xD)and he never fails to use it to his (teasing) advantages.I'm like,one of his opposites,yet,he doesn't demand any offerings or something from me,He doesn't create chaos in my life and noticed that even without the intent of calling Him,He is just...there so easily.And still,despite us being opposites,we're comfortable with each other and we regard each other like we've been acquainted for so long.It might be too unbelievable for me to say this,but I could also see that in a way He lets his guard down and I see more of who He really is when we're together.
Then again,I don't think I'm worthy enough for him when other women are able to provide him stuff I know I can't(you know,for example,sexual energy)...sometimes I feel more of like a burden to him and to the others who like him as well.And I just haaate being a burden to anyone...so really,just confused right now.:confused:
Well,I better stop ranting right now.I mean,you don't need a novel---sorry for that!:hdsk::)
Also,I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for welcoming ignorant little me into these forums.As well as for trying to help me with my annoying questions!:D:

Well, actually, I said I belong to him.  As in, Set owns me - he asked me to submit to him and, when I agreed, he claimed me for his own.

In other words, I am a godslave.

There's documentation out there of deity-human relationships with a romantic bent.  There are some threads here on that topic as well...I'm thinking specifically of one where the relationships between Christian nuns and Jesus is discussed...

Can anyone help me find that one?

Why did you try to deny it?

I think, with this line of thought, you're applying the concept that romantic love existing between two entities (human or otherwise) somehow cancels out any other potential romantic love.  Love (romantic or otherwise) isn't like a cup of sugar that gets used up...and while many people choose to act on their love as if it only applies to one person, that doesn't take away the fact that they probably love more than one.

I'll put it another way.  Your religion lists you as belonging to a denomination of Christianity.  If a Christian loves God, and talks about it, does it lessen the fact that others also love God?  Do Christians feel jealousy when other Christians speak of their love for God, or believe it cancels out their relationship with God?  Likewise, if the Christian God loves you, does that mean he does not love his other followers?

There are a couple of things I want to address here:

1. You say you don't know why there seems to be an affinity between you.  Have you looked at what was going on in your life when he came into it?  Have you asked him why he appears interested in you?

2. Set is more than Chaos and everything he does is done in the name of ma'at (Divine Order).  He is Lord of Obstacles, Master of the Trick Ending, The Storm in the Wilderness.  One of my pet epithets for him is "He Who Waits Until You (Think You) Have It Figured Out and then Rains Light Bulbs".  

But, he is not Captain Obvious and doesn't always cause epic upheaval right away.  I suggest taking a look at what has happened since he's touched your life and you'll probably see some changes.

3. You say he lets his guard down and you see the real him.  What do you mean by this?  What are you seeing that you think others miss?

When dealing with the netjeru (Egyptian deities) it is, IME (in my experience), best to go in with the idea that you are worthy.  If you approach them with the idea that you are a burden, well, they're likely to respond with "Come back when you're not."

Is this the one you mean?   http://www.ecauldron.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4705

It's an interesting (and relevant) conversation anyway :)
