A Thought for Today

To me in order to walk the path of a pagan and witch one of the most important things is to help keep Mother Earth/Gaia’s surface clean from trash left by unenlightened people. We are the Keepers of nature and all living things be they animals, birds, fish, plants, trees, ectara. Besides making potions, poultices, and other healing things for people the wise woman or medicine man would teach others how-to live-in harmony with Mother Earth/Gaia. This is a foundation of modern witchcraft that seems to me to get lost more and more as technology takes over more and more. How many younger people today take the time or even think to write a letter or thank you note or anything to send by regular mail to someone else? Granted with email and all the different social media platforms we can communicate with people all over the world in a blink of an eye but to me this is one of the main reason people have lost empathy and are less incline to help a neighbor, family or friend with something. When you take face to face meetings out of the equation you take a person’s personality out of it as well. Yes, I use technology to bring you information on a daily basis and I am thankful to be able to do that but on the other hand it takes away from me getting to know each of you. That is why I ask on a continuing basis to ask you to leave a comment on posts so I can get to know each of my readers a little bit and do not feel complete unconnected from you as just another person sitting behind a screen unseen and unknown. So please leave a comment now and then so I know I am posting thing that interest you and can get to know you a little bit.

Until we meet again dear sisters, brothers, and honored guests may you blessed be.

  1. It is true indeed that the ease of using technology has dampened face-to-face time between folks. In many ways, being able to communicate with folks via internet is a double edged sword. Technology is all at once inclusive and exclusive – those who are isolated can go online to find folks of like mind, but at the same time the learning curve of using these virtual methods of communication seem to grow more complicated and out of reach for those who did not grow up using them. In my case, I have been able to find a wonderful coven and a patient mentor all virtually. I’m quite grateful that I have access to information that isn’t available anywhere locally.
    At the same time, I often get calls from my parents who struggle with seemingly simple issues. Sending an image using email or logging in and forgetting the right password, for example. For them and many others, it can be a long and complicated process with many steps in between that aren’t at all intuitive, just to accomplish a small task. They express feeling lost and even helpless, navigating technology can be quite tedious.
    All in all, I think the most important thing is to spend quality time connecting with other people. This is much easier in person of course, but taking a moment to like or leave a reply does carry an impact. Regardless of how you communicate with others, do so with empathy and always remember there is another human being on the other end of the line. A small kindness can go a long way in making someone’s day or cheering someone up, whatever way that kindness is given. Thanks so much for posting.

    1. I understand people would didn’t grow up with all the technology we have today. An example is Lord Beltane refusing to use anything but a flip phone. Your words here are great for myself and others. Thank you for taking the time to leave a great comment.
