Back to the Beginning

I’ve been Pagan for seven years, but I have studied religion for nearly fifteen. I grew up with a healthy respect for religious practices that I instilled on myself because no one in my family was religious or spiritual. With a lack of familial background and support, I floated along in my spirituality for years, wandering and wondering what the right path was.When I finally admitted to myself that I was a Witch (my stages of denial and hiding are another story entirely) I felt a freedom I have never before known.

Many things have happened in the years since that point. I’ve studied and committed myself to numerous pantheons and Goddesses. I’ve gone down a darker path and come back into the light and now I have found my balance between the two. (For one cannot exist without the other.)

Now that I have found this balance, I have come to the conclusion that I should go back to the beginnings. From this point forward, I am going to go back to the earliest teachings I have an reexamine them in light of my years of study and research. I will be rereading all of my books, studying them and looking at things that I may have ignored before. There is importance in this. Going back to the start of your religious education forces you to be humble. Yes, I have learned a lot of things, but for what I have learned, I have also forgotten things that I didn’t think were important.

It is going to be a long process and will affect multiple aspects of my life, but I am willing, humble, and open to the Goddess and the changes that she will bring to my life and practice because of this.

Blessings.
