Let’s Talk Witch – Growing as a Solitary
To offer recognition of the divine feminine, to show one’s respect for nature, to have the opportunity for self-improvement and self-self-empowerment, and in appreciation of the decentralized aspects of the religion – these are all common reasons people choose to practice Wicca.
How do we define the goal of Wicca? A common answer is “to serve the gods.” We work with the gods, not for them. And while this is one of the goals of Wicca, it is not the only purpose. You can serve God or gods in any other religion. What makes Wicca unique?
Scott Cunningham titled one of his books Living Wicca, and this wonderful phrase encapsulates what Wicca truly is: Wicca is more than a practice—it’s a way of life. To live Wicca means living in awareness, in peace, in balance, and in harmony. It means living with the goal of every action contributing positively, and every situation teaching you something. It means being mindful, sincere, and true. Living Wicca means recognizing the Divine in everything that surrounds you, and always being able to feel your connection to the gods and the universe.
The true goal of Wicca is to create a way of life that brings you to this state. That state isn’t an end; it is a means by which you can improve your life and maintain the harmony so essential to a better life and a better world.
