    Being Pagan!

    Being Pagan

    1. No conversation or recruitment is necessary...
    Pagans have no insecure compulsion to convert everyone to their way of thinking. People come to witchcraft and wicca when and if they are ready/interested. Furthermore, you are not required to accept or do anything that you're not comfortable with.

    2. No artificial code of morality...
    Out of all of the creatures of this Earth, only humans are forced to live under unnatural moral codes. Pagans believe simply: "An It Harm None, Do As Ye Will".

    3. Progressive Reincarnation...
    Pagans believe we are here to learn and to progress, not suffer eternal damnation if we 'slip-up' in someone else's eyes.

    4. No Discrimination...
    There is no such thing as being the 'right' race, colour, gender, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin to be Pagan; ALL are welcome!

    5. No middle man (or woman)...
    Once you know all of the basics, you can be your own 'minister' or 'priest' you need never bow before (or rely upon) some religious dictator for spiritual guidance, you go straight to the source.

    6. Be yourself...
    By sharing a common interest with others in witchcraft, you do not lose your identity as an individual. You are unique and can and should stay that way without becoming a blob in homogeneous mass.

    7. No repression...
    Pagans are not forbidden from reading, learning, eating, drinking, or saying anything. You can actually even disagree with someone without being 'excommunicated'.

    8. Contribution...
    NO! Not money, but knowledge. The craft has always, and will always, be an experimental religion. If it works, we use it. Then share it so that all in the Craft many benefit.

    9. No rigid Dogma...
    Pagans DO NOT believe that their path is 'The One and Only Path'. The only 'True' path is the one that works best for you. All paths are valid as long as they Harm None.

    10. Self-empowerment...
    Paganism allows you to truly feel your own power and a true sense of self. You are 'allowed' to be the best person that you wish to be with all of the love and support that you can possibly hope for. Pagansim allows you to take your hopes, dreams, and most heart's desire and manifest them in this reality. All is possible. All is real.
