Learning the Craft
Merry Meet :))))) I adore the quote above. It is probably one of the, if not the most important lessons I have learned on my path. It really matters not your background or how you came about to be Wiccan, what matters is what you do on your own personal path going forward.
This is the first religion that I've ever found that puts the primary focus on self and encourages you to empower yourself and honor the Divine within. It teaches you that you don't need anything fancy, item, place or person to ask for help from the Divine or show them your love. You can go out and be spiritual in the forest, at the beach, even the bathroom if you truly want to. In fact most of us are as we prepare our ritual baths. :P :))))
One of the most important things Wicca has taught me though is to honor self. Not to come from ego as that's something different, we are taught to not do that. You are encouraged to really get to know you, to get into your heart and find your true self and then walk your path according to who you really are. You are beautiful and perfect exactly as you are and you really should change for no one in life except yourself. Honor your body for it is your temple. Recharge your soul for it is what helps to guide you. Love with all you have for your life is a precious gift.
I find so many people on the path who are looking for groups and covens to work with. While it is nice to work with other like-minded people, I find that the most important aspect of the journey that you take spiritually is the one where you find you and you learn to walk beside the Divine for that is your rightful place. It is much different then is taught in other religions. There is no need to be popular or compete for anything for when you are on your path the Goddess will provide you with everything that you need. That is something I have been amazingly blessed to learn.
When you find yourself, and learn to trust, the unveiling of your precious gifts will be revealed. The more you work with them, the more they will develop. Use those precious gifts to help others on their paths, for the more of us that find our way, the more people we can help, and the more we can give back to Mother Earth and make the world a better place in the future.
