Welcome to UK Pagan

For Pagans of all paths, and for Pagans of none.

UK Pagan has been an online home and discussion place since being founded in 2001. We pride ourselves on providing a safe space for active debate and conversation, and a place where followers of other religions are welcome providing they show respect and tolerance.

We strive to be a place for all Pagans, whatever path, whatever stage of their learning; a place where Pagans discuss issues with tolerance and respect for others; and a neutral forum with no "site line" or "site view".

We are made for the community and by the community.

      Welcome Starfox 🙂

    • Just arrived new today at The Valley. The Lakota Code of Ethics has given me such a lift and worked as a positive affirmation for me. Thank you Earthdragon.

      To continue in the same vein:

      LAKOTA CODE OF ETHICS

      1. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.

      2. Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy - and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.

      3. Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

      4. Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.

      5. Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.

      6. Respect all things that are placed upon this earth - whether it be people or plant.

      7. Honor other people's thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.

      8. Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you. 

      9. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven. 

      10. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

      11. Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.

      12. Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life's lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.

      13. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.

      14. Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of ones will within this universe.

      15. Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self - all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.

      16. Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.

      17. Respect the privacy and personal space of others. Do not touch the personal property of others - especially sacred and religious objects. This is forbidden.

      18. Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.

      19. Respect others religious beliefs. Do not force your belief on others.

      20. Share your good fortune with others.

       

    • Books are not and cannot be anything more than inspiration when it comes to describing personal belief. No human is perfect, so what they write is at risk of this imperfection. If humans could perfectly describe what can only be held as faith then there is no reason to believe you could perfectly understand your own world without their help. However we can't and we all have to ultimately figure it out on our own. Unless you want a religion spoonfed to you, a book can only be a sounding board, a vague set of directions. Unfortunately, not all of us can get out into nature. It is tone deaf to ignore that for many, this is out of reach. For many minorities in Britain, for example, rural areas are openly hostile to their presence and they do not feel welcome. It's not enough for them to simply "ignore it". For many, books end up the only escapism out of the world that wants to suck them dry and into some form of spiritual comfort.

      Tonight I will be raising a glass to freedom of expression. To shamelessly name and celebrate what we hold dear and what we share by way of creativity, ritual, story and song.

      May all on here feel free in your paganism! 😁🌿

      I've seen this somewhere else recently - maybe on this very page - apologies if so! I very much agree with it.
