I'm Wondering If Anyone Can Help? - Just a few starter questions

Okey dokey, so all you lovely guys out there, after reading my intro, all know that I'm new to Paganism and I have no idea what direction I'm going. :lol:

I was wondering if any of you guys could give me some of your thoughts on some books or websites that might explain the different paths and their beliefs. I don't even know half of the different paths and I want to know if there may be a few out there that might be along my line of thinking. I've currently ordered Pagan Paths, by Pete Jennings so I'm hoping that it might give me some ideas.

 

If you don't mind me asking, are there many paths out there that believe in creationism? I myself am a creationist believer. In my own opinion, the big bang and evolution may have happened but, to me, the matter that created the big bang and start evolution has to have come from somewhere and it can not have created itself. (I mean no disrespect to anyone. Those are just my beliefs and everyone else is free to believe what they wish :P )

 

Thank you all in advance for your help.

      It happens rarely. My clearest recollection is of realising that I was dreaming of driving my first car.  I decided it would be interesting if it would fly and then decided to disappear into a mass of red clouds. I've also found myself facing some rather unfriendly, snake eyed rabbits in a warren.  I think that was my first lucid dream.  I had been flying (again) over the countryside and decided to go underground.  I was very young at the time. Nothing deep or particularly spiritual, I'm afraid.  Imagination plays more of a part in my practice than does lucid dreaming.

      Hi everyone, Hope you're well.  I've been discussing lucid dreaming with a friend and it led me to want to ask folk on here how, if at all, lucid dreaming forms part of your pagan path?  Some of my experiences of a heightened sense of reality, vividness and impactfulness of experience, have been through lucid dreams.  The feeling of being aware that one is dreaming and able to make conscious choices and even alter the 'outer' aspects of the content of the dream is quite unmistakable.  I've engaged with some whom I consider to be personified deity and Otherworldly mentors in this way. Experiences that I'll always carry with me. I would love to hear of your thoughts or experiences of lucid dreaming. Best  ED

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"
