It's incredible how synchronized the events in your life can become when your living in harmony.
The Speculative or religious side of Wicca has really come into focus in my life lately. Once I acknowledged and embraced it, things really took off.
<-----This book by Diane Sylvan surfaced in my life at a suspiciously appropriate time. (click pic to go to Amazon)
Chapter three is about "Walking the Path". As my friends in the Ceremonial Magic Community are fond of saying, "Magic is a verb", and so is Wicca.
A good portion of chapter three is about "Wiccan Graces" or attributions that as Wiccans we should embody. The one that really stuck out for me was Forgiveness.
Diane Writes "the longer we hold past actions against someone, one longer we are victims of their actions." I really chewed on that one for a while, thinking about those who shall remain nameless.
I thought about how much I have benefited from people who have made themselves obstacles in my life, and even though I know they were necessary for my path, part of me can't let go of what they were trying to purposefully do to me. Intent is EVERYTHING.
But I recognize the potential for personal growth and the opportunity for freedom that has been laid at my feet, and I accept it. This coming Full Moon ritual will be dedicated to the craftwork of forgiveness. And to those of you, and you know who you are... I forgive you.
