A Brief History of Wicca
B. Many authors and philosophers helped to develop the magical modern religion and to articulate parts of its belief structure.
C. The religion finds its roots in ancient ways. It has psychic connections and sympathy with those who were burnt in the medieval period, and indeed with all individuals who have been oppressed and killed in the name of religion.
D. The recent "festival" movement has enhanced the growth and diversity of the religion.
3. Explicit Religious Doctrines
B. Every living entity has a spirit which is connected to and part of every other spirit. Humans are part of Nature.
C. Divinity manifests itself through all living beings. Nature itself is divine, as is the Cosmos.
D. God and goddess images are recognized as aspects of a greater divinity.
4. Ritual and Worship
B. Each worship site is constructed anew on each occasion of meeting. It is defined by new consecrated circles, and may be located anywhere.
C. Only coven
members are allowed to enter the innermost circle.
If it harm none, do what you will.
C. As above so below. We
believe spirituality to be our utmost goal. There are
many who wish to change the here and now through magical
workings, which is a mundane change and using your much
greater abilities to affect instead of accepting today's
spiritual lessons. We believe that this is derogatory to
spiritual growth. We can learn much better how to accept
our spiritual path and today's obstacles through
meditation and working with our Guides to understand
this path. We view spiritual growth as far better than
mundane growth. Spiritual growth comes through knowledge
and understanding--learn all you can, through books,
Guides, courses, healing, etc.
