Finding the Divine

During the course of my life, I have never really been to far away from those people who walked the path of the Ancient Ones, although for the most I never fully realised it. My best friend back in New Zealand, mother’s family who, due to geographical distance I never met but they to had practised an old, earth based religion, perhaps this is the reason why I to have finally chosen this spiritual path – the Teutonic blood of my ancestors running through my veins.

While I was drawn to a pagan way of life, I was also apprehensive at first, as much of the information I found was quiet seriously influenced by Gardnerian Wicca I did not feel comfortable with some of it, and in some way it did not feel right to me. Really, I had no choice but to keep looking for different ideas and approaches to things through books and numerous websites.

It is a life choice. I didn’t one morning wake up and go “Oh, today I think I will be a Witch or today I will be a Pagan” it is an on going lesson of life – not all hocus-pocus and abracadabra as so many people misguidedly think. For me being a Pagan or a woman who practices an age old craft,  is not just about casting spells and ‘doing’ Magick, it is a very personal journey about finding the Divine within me and with out. It took a long time to learn this lesson, for without having a relationship with the Goddess or God, my life and my Craft would be empty.

I used to think that anything Divine was something found in a Patriarchal church, something or someone I could not touch, whose rules had to be obeyed. I was so excited when I finally started to get it – that the Divine was everything, was everywhere, and was in everything, within me even. I could go on for ages about this, but my train of thought has come back full circle (no pun intended) to the reason I wanted to post on this topic.
The other day, while cleaning out some folders on my computer I found something someone had made for me, it was a wonderful present and its finding was timely, as are most things in life.  It was a beautiful picture with a quote on it by Frank Lloyd Wright it said simply “She put the N in nature and called it her Church” this simple quote so moved me – when she gave it to me, I asked her about it.  She said that, the quote “was you, is you” You see nature is my Divine, is my “church”

Nearly every morning I get up and I go outdoors. I thank and welcome the Spirits and Guardians of the East, North, West and South into my day. I take in several deep breaths of the fresh morning air. Every sense of my being tingles as I breathe in the Divine and exhale the Sacred. This to me – is Magick.

Footnote: Not all Pagans are witches, and not all witches are Wiccan.
