The nature of our way

As often, as possible, hold rites in forests, by the seashore, on deserted mountaintops or near tranquil lakes. Seek out wisdom in books, rare manuscripts and cryptic poems if you will, but seek it out also in simple stones and fragile herbs and in the cries of wild birds. Listen to the whisperings of the wind and the roar of water if you would discover magick, for it is here that the old secrets are preserved.

Books contain words; trees contain energies and wisdom books never dreamt of. Ever remember that the Old Ways are constantly revealing themselves. Therefore be as the river willow that bends and sways with the wind. That which remains changeless shall outlive it’s spirit, but that which evolves and grows will shine for centuries.

There can be no monopoly on wisdom. Therefore share what you will of our ways with others who seek them, but hide mystic lore from the eyes of those who would destroy- for to do otherwise increases their destruction. Mock not the rituals or spells of another, for who can say yours are greater in power or wisdom?

Ensure that your actions are honorable, for all that you do shall return to you three-fold, good or bane. Be wary of one who would dominate you, who would control and manipulate your workings and reverences. Honor all living things, for we are of the bird, the fish, the bee. Destroy not life save it be to preserve your own. And this is the nature of our way.

One thought on “The nature of our way

  1. Namaste πŸ™‚ It is always such a joy to visit your blog site πŸ™‚ I love the image of your altar πŸ™‚ I, sadly, do have to combine the mundane (making a living) with the spiritual, and reside in the city, where privacy (and safety) for outdoor ritual is simply not feasible. That said, the elements reside in harmony and abundance within my home, which is itself a sanctuary filled with altars and energy. But more than anything, we all know that the elements, and spirit reside within us, the body altar is alive, active and reverent, always. Thank you again for your great site :), I love getting a chance to see outdoor rites πŸ™‚ In balance, Shakti Shaman.
