"Wicca should be taken seriously because it increases spiritual development and instills great appreciation and concern for the planet and its resources.

“Witchcraft is a spiritual system that fosters the free thought and will of the individual, encourages learning and an understanding of the earth and nature thereby affirming the divinity in all living things.” Witchcraft involves the belief that the divine is present in nature, and everything from animals, plants, trees, and stones should be honored and respected. Wicca, or practitioners of witchcraft whom sometimes refer to themselves as witches, are very tolerant of other religious views. Wiccans are commonly misjudged by others due to a lack of understanding, therefore Wiccans do not typically involve themselves in criticizing the beliefs of others. Wicca should be taken seriously and respected because although its nature is severely misconstrued, it increases spiritual development and instills great appreciation and concern for the planet and its resources."

I have heard people arguing a good case to bring back capital punishment. Doesn't make it good though, now, does it?

There are many people who have experienced witchcraft first hand.

They thought it was harmless at first, until they go deep into it.

Then they warn everyone to stay away from it.

I know witchcraft a means different things to everyone. But I have seen the dark side of it.

There is witchcraft and then there is magic.

Two separate things but they can go together.

Everything depends on the believer. It is a very personal belief systems as what you believe counts.

So that it why it is so difficult to talk about witchcraft. Because it is different for each witch.


Some witches invoke the spirit. Some don't.

Even things which don't count as witchcraft can be dangerously. yes, even some Christian practices.

But people are warned about them.

Psychic and medium activities can be very dangerous, too.

I am not the only one is wary of witchcraft though.

I talk about the museum of witchcraft and magic a lot. There are many curses in there and the effects that happened after the curse.

It is full of evil. Nothing good.


Go there and see.

i have read & researched a lot on all these areas & i agree with the article in the OP.

i have studied, read & researched a fair amount on Magick, & have quite a number of books on the subject. i am very interested in the Shamanic, Hermetic, Alchemical, & Mystical/Esoteric/Occult traditions in general, & worked within these & other areas at time for decades.

i'm from the same area as Gerald Gardiner. i know some of what goes on.

He makes me sick. I wouldn't want to be associated with anything to do with him, Or what he puts his name to.

Who he is and what he got up to makes my physically fell sick.

i don't know why? What harm has he done?

The history of Christianity & what it's done i think is on a far worse scale.

Maori

"My law is unerring, no blood can atone, The structure you built, you will live in alone.

From cycle to cycle, through time and through space, Your lives with your longings will ever keep pace.

And all that you ask for and all you desire, Must come at your bidding, as flame out of fire.

Once list' to that voice and all tumult is done, Your life is the life of the infinite one.

In the hurrying race, you are conscious of pause, With love for the purpose and love for the cause.

You are your own devil, you are your own God, You fashioned the paths that your footsteps have trod.

And NOTHING, will save you from error or sin, Until you have harked to the Spirit within."
