Or am I forming a giant “P?”
I have, once again, been thinking about the Wiccan faith. For a long time, and still do, feel that Wicca is much more formalized and regimented than anyone would care to admit. (Rather like Christianity, though I am sure I would get some vehement arguments about this.)
In spite of that, I have felt myself drawn back to Wicca, for no other reason than the structure. In truth, since my own beliefs are rather loose, I have felt little inclination to expand my own understanding of the universe and my place within it.
In short, there was no structure, and I have discovered that I desire that structure.
Now I’m not saying that I am going to rededicate myself to Wicca or run off and join a coven or anything, but I will give the matter its due diligence and explore where it leads me. After all, this is the foundation of my belief system: to continuously explore myself.
If anything, this will, at the very least, serve as a foundation for continued spiritual growth. And isn’t that the goal?
So, back to the books for some study and introspection. Why books when I am supposed to be exploring myself? Well, I have to start somewhere and the writers of these books know more than I about the path, therefore, logically, I should learn from them. See if what they have to say is anywhere close to what I believe.
Now, I know somethings aren’t going to be compatible. Nothing is ever a 100% fit, but we will see how well it goes.
I’m looking forward to the trip.
