You never realize how busy you are until you start a blog . I started this blog to share some of the insights that I have found to help me throughout the years on my journey in the Craft . I have found that it is pretty simple . No complexities to it .
My Principles of the Wiccan belief.
1.) I practice rites to attune with the natural rhythm of the life force that are marked by the phases of the Moon and the seasonal Quarter and cross quarters .
2.)I recognize that our intelligence gives us a unique responsibility towards our environment.I seek to live in harmony with nature in ecological balance offering balance fulfillment to life and consciousness within an evolutionary concept .
3.)I acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that apparent to the average person . Because it is far greater than ordinary it is" supernatural " , but I see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to us all .
4.)I conceive of the Creative Power in the universe as manifesting through polarity as masculine and feminine( My mother Goddess and Father God )and that this same Creative Power lies in all people and functions through the interactions of masculine and feminine .I value neither above the other knowing that each to be supportive of the other .
5.)I recognize both outer worlds and inner , or psychological worlds sometimes known as the Spiritual world, and the collective unconsciousness , and I see the interactions of these two dimensions the basis of paranormal phenomenon and magical exercises .I neglect neither dimension for the other , seeing how they are both necessary for my fulfillment .
6.)I do not recognize any authoritarian hierarchy, but do Honor those who teach , Respect those who share greater knowledge and wisdom ,and acknowledge those who have courageously given of themselves .
7.)I see Religion , Magick and Wisdom in living and being united in the way One views the world and lives within it -a worldview and philosophy of life which I identify as Witchcraft - the Wiccan way .
8.)Calling Oneself " Witch " does not make one Witch - neither does heredity itself ,nor the collection of titles , degrees and initiations. A Witch seeks to control the forces within her/himself that make life possible in order to live wisely and without harm to others and in harmony with Nature .
9.)I believe in the affirmation and fulfillment of life in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness giving meaning to the Universe I know and the personal role within it .
10.)My only animosity towards Christianity, or towards other religion or philosophy of life ,is to extent that its institutions have claimed to be THE ONLY WAY, and have sought to deny freedom to others and to suppress others ways of religious practice and belief .
11.)As an American Witch , I am not threatened by debates on history of the Craft, the origins of various terms , the legitimacy of various aspects of different traditions .I am concerned with our present and our future .
12.)I do not accept the concept of absolute evil ,nor do I worship any entity known as " Satan" or " the devil "as defined bu Christian tradition .I do not seek power through the suffering of others . nor do I accept that personal benefit can be derived only through the denial of another .
13.)I believe that we should seek within Nature that which is contributory to our health and wellbeing .
I feel no need to worship in a church, Nature is my Church . I do not give money to a establishment to do good things for others I do good things for others . I find it fascinating that there are many concepts of the Wiccan / Pagan belief system that have been adapted and altered to fit in with other religion concepts . Mother Nature is my Mother and the Earth is my home . I try to walk with her the best way I can .She is the sky above me and the Earth below my my feet . She is the changing tides of the Ocean ,the phases of the Moon , She is the air that I breathe and the rain that falls . I put no names , no titles to her other than Mother and Father . They are One together, two apart. They are both in the same . You can not create life with one alone . ( unless you are a worm , that is not my field ) What is my field you ask ? Well, my field..... is to learn and create , to love and to laugh . My field is to help those that I can , to teach those who ask . To grow and to live in peace with those around me . That is my field . Brightest blessing to you who travel here .
