There is magic in the drift and waft of the wind.
There is magic in the ebb and flow of the tide.

When you close your eyes for a moment.

Close your eyes for a moment..

What you hear in your mind, what you sense in your heart, in that
momentary stillness, bright or dark, is magic.

Everything you touch, everything you do, everything you see and don't
see, everything you know is magic.

Everything that lives, and doesn't live, is magic.

To say magic causes change to occur in conformity with the will, while
useful, is to confine magic to a parameter it transcends by its very

Magic is that which moves, and that which does.

It is that which does not, and is still.

We touch it and use it every day of our lives, whether we know it or not.

Using magic, we create magic.

The casting of Spells and the saying of Prayers are magical actions.
They call magic to us, and send it forward, changed.

Magic lives within us and causes us to live.

The Creation of Life itself is magic unfettered, held in the tiniest
of seeds, the greatest of stars.

All those who wonder, who create, who dream, who pray, who wish, who
do and who wish to do, and not to do, use magic.

Magic is that by which we measure our days, our nights.

It is the spark that brings dreams alive.

Magic is all around us.
It's Time
Remove superstition from Mystery
Open your mind

The Oxford English Dictionary defines gnosis as, 'A knowledge of spiritual mysteries.' From the word gnosis is derived Gnostic and Gnosticism, the latter a modern construct referring to one of various eastern sectarians flourishing during the early Christian era which claimed to have supernatural knowledge . The term being Koine Greek has, nonetheless, a much broader application than being exclusive to any sectarian group. The term Gnosis is used by Byzantine and Hellenic cultures as a word to mean a special knowledge or insight of the supernatural,[2] in some sense mature understanding or knowledge.[3] It refers to the knowledge that comes from experience rather than from rational or reasoned thinking as in revelation and or intuitive knowledge (see gnosiology).

Raven Kaldera is calling for submissions for his book which is designed to be a handbook for Pagan religious groups as to how to cope with the issue of personal gnosis in your religion. If you are interested in contributing visit the link below for more info.

[The Anti-Heathenism ideology]

The term “Individualism” in the simplest and generalized definition is an “I’m alright Jack, bugger the rest of you” attitude and view-point.

The consideration for family, community, clan and tribe is at no time a relevant focus of the Individualism ideology. Individualism is about the "I" and it is only when the individual chooses to be a part of community that the society becomes important. Family, community, clan and tribe are if anything seen as controlling factors in the Individualists lives and even can be a hindrance.

The Problem of Pagan Bullying

Most people, when asked why Paganism appeals to them as a spiritual path would cite as part of the reason the tolerance, compassion and acceptance that they found from others in the Community. Generally speaking, this would be a fair statement - most Pagans are like this. Unfortunately, as in all religions, there are some who are not as interested in the spiritual aspects as they are in gaining and keeping power over others.

One problem we have is that Paganism is infested with various types of bullies, intent on creating rifts between people so that they gain control of the Communities they deal with. The most common way these people achieve this is through the spreading of rumours and lies in an effort to drive targeted people out of the Community and make those remaining afraid of sharing the same fate if they take a stand against the bully.

The Anti Cyber Bully

Not connected to the above article but in the same vein is this Yahoo group.

This group has been created to combat against Cyber Bullying, Abuse, Harassment, Threats, Copyright Infringements, Plagiarism.

As Yahoo Administration itself, seemingly does not act or is slow to act on reports made to them on these matters, it is deemed necessary to establish a group to document such instances and then assist the Yahoo management by forwarding such reports
