Subject: RE: BS: Paganism: an exploration
Well folks I've been Pagan since about 1982, and into earth spirituality for longer than that-- since I was born probably-- and I regularly teach at Pagan gatherings and hang out with other Pagans. My experience is that there are lots of ways to practice Paganisn/Witchcraft-- I personally consider myself a shamanic witch, but don't practice Wicca in the formal sense much any more. I do honor the Goddess/God and all of creation as my relatives, since we're all in my opinion children of the gods. Even the rocks... for me the joy of this path is that spirituality is a first hand experience of the Divine. As long as you harm no one you are free to do as you like according to my "religion". I try to take it a step further but doing good as often and wherever I can. So one of the things I try to put behind me is the not so nice past of certain humans, since in my experience most people are basically good, or at least not evil. More later probably, but I have a client to see. Thanks hesperis for starting this thread. Hopefully more of us will come out of the closet!

Blessed Be...
