    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    'And Joy is Everywhere; It is in the Earth's green covering of grass; In the blue serenity of the Sky; In the reckless exuberance of Spring; In the severe abstinence of grey Winter; In the Living flesh that animates our bodily frame; In the perfect poise of the Human figure, noble and upright; In Living; In the exercise of all our powers; In the acquisition of Knowledge; in fighting evils... Joy is there Everywhere.' Ravindranath Tagore

    Entirely up to you, as those above have indicated. It is likely I will do nothing - as is up to me...!

    Mental Health/ Pagan/ Opinions

    Hello Straw berry blonde, Firstly, you are brave in your honesty to tell of your personal background. I believe that any god or goddess being pagan or divine will love you for who you are not what you are and if someone does have a form of illness than that does not define you. Everyone has it in their DSM. We all have potential illness or the link to anything, be it a mental thing or Adhd or whatever, the most important thing is to accept every part of your being. I think empathy is the key word to paganism though I have seen cases of certain groups enlightening only themselves. true div

    beltane ritual dont know where to start

    One thing that Beltane entails ia having a fire and a good knees up 😁 My advice as to doing something more formal, well the energies of Spring have come of age so try speaking out to them in any way that feels good and from your heart.

    beltane ritual dont know where to start

    You are the world’s leading expert on The Wolf Moonism. Don’t worry about what the rest of us do. Just go to wherever you think speaks to you about the Beltane message. That message is just for you. It isn’t the same one that I or anyone else receives. Sit or stand under a tree, in the middle of a grassy patch, on a tarmac car park if that is all that’s available. Wherever you feel that the season is talking to you. Then: Listen. Quiet your mind and let thoughts and impressions arrive. After you’ve listened and if you want to say something then say it. If

  8. May your paganism help you to gain some strength and balance amidst the issues that you describe, Wolfmoon.
  9. All the best. When you say you are going to get help - that seems an excellent idea.
  10. WM No advice. No judgement. Just a (socially distanced) virtual hug.

    "I think the Mother is gradually revealing itself to me and taking over. But it is not the Mother alone. It is the Mother and the Father, the male and the female, sort of gradually having their marriage." -- Venerable Bede

    The traveler has to knock at every alien door to come to his own, and one has to wander through all the outer worlds to reach the innermost shrine at the end. Rabindranath Tagore

    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    Freedom and love go together. Love is not a reaction. If I love you because you love me, that is mere trade, a thing to be bought in the market; it is not love. To love is not to ask anything in return, not even to feel that you are giving something- and it is only such love that can know freedom. Jiddu Krishnamurti

    "Forever destructions have departed Fruit on trees A branch drooping down Drooping from growth Wealth for a son A son with wisdom Neck of bull in yoke A bull from a song Knots in woods Wood for a fire Fire as wanted Walls new and bright Salmon their victory" from the first prophecy of MorRigana after the battle of Maige Tuiredh (Moytura).

    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    "forts, barren of structures, hollow, a stronghold coming from mistakes a devastated time, many homeless, an excess of lords, joy in evil, a cry against traditions, bearded faces. Equipment decaying, numerous exploits, finding battles, silent towards a spurred horse, numerous assemblies, treachery of lord's sons, covered in sorrow, crooked judgement of old men. False precedents of judges, a betrayer every man." from The Second Prophecy of MorRigana after the battle of Maige Tuiredh (Moytura).

    'I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.' Herman Hesse
  21. When I was younger I was obsessed (as many were in the 90s) with the idea of wealth.... One day I read a quote (well part of a quote) from Seneca the younger that has stuck with me since then... I remind myself of it quite often to stop myself longing for things I don't have.

    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    On the path of devotion, the relationship between the devotee and deity is personal and unique. Your father’s Hanuman can be different from your Hanuman. Maybe his Hanuman doesn’t allow him to cut nails on Tuesday, your Hanuman might allow. The devotee assigns characteristics to the deity out of love. There are as many deities as there are devotees. Shunya

    When we talk about understanding, surely it takes place only when the mind listens completely – the mind being your heart, your nerves, your ears- when you give your whole attention to it. Jiddu Krishnamurti

    Inspirational Words for Newbies to Veterans

    Witch-Goddess Moon, thy spell invokes The Ancient Ones of night, Once more the old stone altar smokes, The fire is glimmering bright. Scattered and few thy children be, Yet gather we unknown To dance the old round merrily About the time-worn stone. We ask no Heaven, we fear no Hell, Nor mourn our outcast lot, Treading the mazes of a spell By priests and men forgot. Gerald B. Gardner, The Meaning of Witchcraft
