Witchcraft is not just
healing, altering the weather, assuring fertility of plants and animals,
protecting ourselves, and money spells… necessary though these and other
workings may be.
It is a closeness and
friendship with others like ourselves who are similar in attitudes, outlooks,
and intellect...a harmonious relationship that can and does make coven members
closer and more supportive of one another than even with families and blood
relations. And yet, it is much, much more.
Each and every member of
the Old Religion must live to grow and to become better as time goes on. Each
Witch must ever strive to be calm and serene as a person, and to have a vast
depth personally…the better to draw forth-internal strength and magic as it
develops and is needed.
The Witch must constantly
grow to be increasingly sensitive to people and to the world…far more than her
or his fellows and neighbors. One must learn to thing magically, to live
magically, to see the mystery and magic, which pervades and underlies all of
existence...and yet work, maintain, support, and advance oneself solidly and
self-sufficiently within the mundane world. The Witch must ever work, and work
hard, to make a good life for herself or himself, and for families and loved
ones. Life will never really be easy, but it can be made to be very, very
One who pursues the
Mysteries must always work to strengthen health and spirit, to build confidence,
comeliness of face and body, and a personal magnetism to draw others within
All this and more is
necessary to lay the groundwork for the Witch to live richly and fully, and
long…far longer than one’s fellow humans. One who in every way masters the
physical, mental, spiritual, and magical aspects of Self, will serve to build
the magical “body of light” so that the Witch can pass easily and quickly
into anew body, when the old one eventually can no longer be used.
The Witch must concentrate
always on building sensitivities and powers far beyond those of ordinary
humankind, yet always knowing responsibilities, high regard, and even love for
all living things. “By helping others we ourselves are helped.”
There must be an
ever-greater confidence and pride in oneself, for there is a building and
expanding of oneself that never ends…ever seeking perfection of body, mind,
spirit, and soul. Ever growing, ever gaining more within and without oneself.
And enjoying it greatly. -
For the Witch, human
horizons are not the limit…for ancient lore teaches that the true adept can
eventually attain superhuman qualities and powers, and ultimately attain to demi-god/dess-hood.
The human state can be far transcended, such that each who is worthy can gain
the Portals into realms of time and space, and multitudes of realities and far
dimensions that we, in our human form, cannot even conceive!
