All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I have tried all my life to change the raising I had of violence and fear. Paganism spoke to me of such love,peach and unity with the nature and universe around me. I cling to my believes of no harm and being the change I want to see. I raise my kids with STRONG pagan believes..IT IS NOT MY RELIGION IT IS MY WAY OF LIVE>>>not obsession but existence. I walk barefoot across the ground of my mother earth and absorb her energy as she takes mine. I reach my hands out to share with the trees as they wave in the wind. i smile at the birds apone the rooftop as they send me there message. I consume foods with life force in them to sustain me and I think the earth for her sacrifice. I do circle with my children on holy days and teach them to peacefully communicate and to meditate.I teach them loyalty is love build on respect and honesty and faith.
THIS is a hard thing because I see a society that steals energy from one another by causing fear in the hearts and minds of others. They dominate and destroy and conquer. They believe that by making one fearful you are in control and have loyalty from those afraid. IN truth ..That only last intil they get a bigger weapon.
I cry! I cry out to those pagan, ancient GODS that I KNOW, in my soul CRY AS WELL! Our world is dying! Our trees cut and our air poisoned! The minds of our children distracted and desensitized. Our brothers and sisters fighting, lieing and killing. Harming themselves and others with toxic relationships and chemicals in there bodies.
To me being a pagan is the flesh I care for. the breath I take, my soul inside, and my emotions I share.
I have been called Naive, childish, contradictory stupid,,,,,and sometimes by pagans.
That is when I cry that hardest.
