A Thought for Today

I pulled this from an older post because it fits with my post of yesterday.

We can help the most by showing society we are peaceful, loving people just like everyone should be.

We can help be leading by example living in harmony with Mother Earth and doing all we can to help her heal. Such as recycling anything we use that has that option, pick up others track including cigarette butts when out for a walk or hiking. Use earth friendly laundry soap, liquid fabric softener, dish soap, body soap (bar or gel), shampoo, paper products made at least in part with recycled paper.

We can help by saying hi or just smiling at people We walk pass or inter act with.

Please share your thoughts or things you already do to live in better harmony with all living things. Especially the talking humans who can really get under your skin.

A Thought for Today

d8677d73877ece2fe0d7a5f3c21474c2--magick-spells-witchcraft

We are not some secret society that sacrifices babies or animals.

Most of us will never put a hex or curse on a person, place, or animal.

We respect the religion of others and do try to not condemn them or their beliefs or to force our beliefs onto them.

As Witches and/or Pagans we are usually much more intuned with Gaia/Mother Earth then those of “main stream” religions and there for respect and as much as we can to live in harmony with her and allthe living things.

Always take responsibility for anything you say or do. If you wrong someone it is your place to apologize to make things right again. Even if after doing this you decide to cut the person totally out of your life forever. We do not have commandments but we do have a Witches Rede summed up in 8 words

Do as you will, less it harm none

The “none” includes yourself, domestic animals, wildlife from the on, above, and under the ground, oceans, lakes, any water ways, that live and fly in the air, slither in the sand and/or crawl on top or below the ground and most of all another human. Once again take responsibility for your words and/or actions as harm maybe caused to yourself or others in many ways mentally, physically, emotionally or any combination of these.

As you do spells and/or rituals, if it is for others ask their permission first, keep in mind the Threefold Law as know as The Rule of Three. Remember this means any of your words and/or actions good or back will in someway come -back to you three times stronger then when you spoke unlikely or kindly, when an action had negative or positive consequences to another living thing. This is not a Witches law/rule just for spells but the path you walk daily.  Never do a spell that will take away even a miniscule part of another person’s free will.

I ask each of you reading this to stop a thinking for a couple of minutes if any of you actions and/or words were harmful to anyone you came into contact with in the last couple of weeks. If you have I challenge you to live by the Reds and Threefold Law to take responsibility for the wrong you did and give the person or persons a sincere apology.

May you find love, happiness, peace, and harmony everyday.

I know, you want to get ahead in life but life is not predictable, and you must be flexible…if you want to succeed. Patience is one of the keys. Being hasty will only make you take the wrong decisions.
