    DEEPER THOUGHTS

    Thoughts go swirling through my head It is true, they ask, that tolerance is dead? What means all these signs of the times When lives are bought for a few dimes? Are we, as citizens, becoming less aware Of that which should cause the greatest fear? It is not bombs or guns that destroy Our freedom as if it were a mere toy, but power wielded by those who should care, but instead try to get away with as much as they dare. Those leaders among us who do not try To understand the deeper question of “Why?” Such as why it matters to whom we pray? Or why only…

    ARTEMIS

    Lady Moon, grant me night vision. Let me walk in your half-light at ease with my unknowing. Once I thought, if only, if only I had money, if only I was loved: I would be content. If only, if only I could find the correct path, the right answer, the perfect word I would be content. And failing this, I imagined if, if I asked for nothing, making gilt shrines to my gathered sufferings: I would be content. Lady, Lady Moon, grant me this favor: to know that contentment is not always the highest good. Tide pull me, stretch me, disturb me, give me sweet and sour dreams, in your…

    Reader Response

    This is in response to the “Coming Out” articles in the March Issue of Pagan Pages My daughter-in-law’s mother is ordinarily a very sweet person, but when she found out that my daughter and I do not subscribe to Christianity, she began a bully pulpit campaign to convert us to her way of thinking……rabid, narrow-minded evangelicism. After enduring her questions, such as “aren’t you afraid you’ll go to Hell?” and “Why can’t you accept Jesus as your Savior?”, I finally looked her in the eye and said: “Karen, I do not proselytize you to convert to my religious beliefs, why do you feel you have the right to proselytize me…

    Starting on the Vodou Path

    As with many Afro-Carribean spiritual traditions, Vodou emphasizes ancestor service. Biological, spiritual, and other ancestors are served within the Vodou tradition. Our ancestors guide us, warn us, and assist us in furthering our personal spiritual development. Your ancestors may include deceased birth parents, relatives, adopted parents (if you were an adopted child), close friends, and those of your spiritual lineage. You can even honor the first ancestor and all your ancestors all the way back to the beginning of time. Ancestors are naturally a part of you and are easiest to serve. You should research your family tree. Look through your lineage and learn about yourself. Know yourself, as knowing…

    Pagans In The Army: My Experience

    Like most military pagan, I was a little apprehensive about stepping out of the broom closet for fear of the possible repercussions that might occur. Though, my experience has shown me, coming out was the best decision I have made in my short military career. Everyone in my platoon found out that I was a pagan believer in the fall of 2005 at a training area in Germany called Hohenfels. I was laying on my cot reading a book on Wiccan beliefs and practices when someone asked me if I believed in what I was reading. In a panic, I closed the book and got off my cot and headed…

    X-Witch

    Goddess Christian When I told my Pacific Northwest friends I was moving back to Georgia to help my mother tend to ill family members the first thing they asked was, “Are you coming out about being a witch?” This was followed by, “Is there really such a thing as Southern Baptist Witches?” To the latter question, I really have no answer as I am no longer the Southern Baptist Christian I was raised to be. To the former question my answer was an unequivocal “Yes.” Most of my Northwest friends are Pagan, Wiccan, or some other form of “Other.” And what has always surprised them is the fact that I…
