Active Participation

One of the things making it hard to write here is how simple it all is. Many of us use complicated systems like the Qabala or study ancient writings until our left eye falls out. Many of us become religious and put ourselves through all kinds of dogmatic restrictions. Worse, many of us get initiated into various orders, cults and social clubs. Then it gets really sticky. We start to bash each other with shouts of 'you are doing it wrong'.


Yes you can accidentally kill yourself with magick or someone else or cause severe health problems because you have no idea what you're doing. You can appear to set yourself back years, a decade or a lifetime. The unfolding will happen no matter what silliness you engage in.

Why then do we do all these things? We do them for the joy of active participation in our unfolding. We do them because we are compelled to evolve now, no matter what the price. We do them because we are ready. There is no other answer.

God if you could repeat that a thousand times, and better if everyone would believe it: it is IMPOSSIBLE to do it simple, so true, but not easy

One of the reasons I was drawn to Druidry was because of the simplicity of it. The magic is all around us and always has been; you only have to learn to be present to tune into it. Spirit is already present within us. Our quest to connect with Spirit is because we have forgotten who we really are; we have forgotten how to reconnect.

Like myself, you have traveled a long, arduous road, though it was very different from mine. Congratulations on your breakthrough! Mine was truly like being reborn, birth pangs and all. I was "pushed" out of the womb I was being held in by the gods/goddess/spirit and it wasn't comfortable to say the least. Had I been given the choice I would never have done it on my own. Thank the gods I wasn't given the choice. LOL

As the Buddhists say, "There are many roads to the top of the mountain, but the view from the top is the same." We are all connected to Spirit already...our path is to learn to reconnect, to remember who we really are, in whatever way best helps us to do this. All is perfect; all is Maya, created by us merely for the growth of our own soul, for our own experiences.

Wishing you the deep peace and joy that simplicity and oneness with Spirit will bring you.
