“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”
"We all change when you think about it, we are all different people all through our lives, and thats okay; thats good, you've gotta keep moving so long as you remember all the people that you used to be."

We generally do not worship any entities, but we recognize the existence of them, commonly referred to as spirits. We believe in the equality of all beings in the Universe, seeing them all as different and separate but still equal. We revere and respect Nature, however we do not worship it or its representatives.
This is literally how I have described myself for the last three years. Almost word for word. Reverence, not worship. I know seeking validation can be dangerous, but I am glad that those who have trodden the path before me share my approach. I gives me some confidence that I am heading in the right direction, and that this is right for me. I may not have been born destined for the craft, but I do feel I may have a chance at creating something fruitful.

This is amazing. I'm so glad this is the first actual article I read here. It really affirms the choice I made to join this forum. It spoke to me on so many levels, especially as someone who felt lost in the sense of this practice as a religion or as what I've always called the "fluffy bunny" syndrome. It's something very deep within ourselves that pulls at specific places in our heart. I had lost that feeling when I began delving into the world of Wicca, and am so happy that the knowledge that there is something else, something more wild and deep down can be found and is once again pulling at my heart strings.
Thank you so much for this!

That was so beautiful. I'd like a copy of this to make a poster and hang in my altar room if you don't mind? Something I can read when times are hard. Simply beautiful words that ( call me sentimental) actually brought tears to my eyes.
Startella has not been around for quite some time, but I don't think she would mind you putting a poster in your private space. Just don't replicate it online. She does write beautifully... much food for thought.
If I break faith with thee, may the skies fall upon me, the seas drown me, and the earth rise up and swallow me.

The other fluffiness and all that junk that permeates the book stores and internet, and here I find a true gem.
It's just a reaffirmation for me that this is where I have to be.
Lovely post. by the way.
