Explore the beauty and wisdom of the Wiccan path.
Within this human experience, many of us sense that we are constituents of something much greater, of something infinite. Many of us have the notion of being an individual pixel of awareness within the cosmic image of existence. It is the Witch who knows that every pixel is of equal value, as each contributes to the composition and clarity of the whole picture.
It is the Witch who recognizes divine consciousness in all life, and treats all beings as such. And, it is the Witch who dedicates his or her life to divinity's evolution by way of honoring the self, seeking wisdom, revering nature, and by directing energy in accordance with Universal Law (practicing magick). Simply stated, Wicca is a modern religion of the Witch.
As a Neo-Pagan religion, Wicca adapts age-old beliefs to a modern world. It is a patchwork religion, in which one man stitched together several belief systems that had a common thread. Metaphysical understanding is what underlies all the elements composing Wicca. There are influences from Witchcraft, ceremonial magic, Freemasonry, Thelema, etc.
Wicca's permissive nature allows individuals to freely build on its foundation. It is accepting and accommodating to all who respect it. In the face of conventional dogmatic religious structures, Wicca is a release from the shackles of spiritual oppression. It provides a nurturing environment for a soul to relearn how to spread its wings.
