I picked "My beliefs are still the same as they were a year ago"...but I'm afraid that's mostly just because I haven't been doing much with them. I'm kind of depressed by that because back when I first started this crazy path called Paganism (and actually long before that) I used to constantly examine by beliefs and try and figure out what I believed and why. Now I find myself spouting off the same old stuff I have said for the past couple years...and I can't help but wonder if I even pay any attention to it anymore. I still believe it. I still feel it in my heart and soul...but what does it mean anymore. Quite disheartening. I feel in a spiritual rut and it's been this way almost the entire year. I'm hoping it'll change soon...so maybe "I am in transition and don't know where I will end up" fits too...but if not in a manner meaning that my beliefs will change...maybe to mean that they will mean more to me (or at least as much as they used to mean to me). Anyone else feeling me on this...you guys picking up what I'm laying down? Anyone?

I hear ya

I needed to do a lot of self-examination and not a lot of spouting off for a while. My beliefs have changed but, I feel more balanced now. It wasn't an easy transition though, so I feel for you



Help!!!

I went through a point of spiritual crisis last Yule.. came to the point where I realized I was ignoring my spirit in lieu of more mundane things... decided to actively reconnect to myself and the Pagan community at large, while remaining solitary in my practice. My idea of what's out there, the godforce, hasn't changed.. however, examining the humanist in me has been a point of critical thinking more so lately than before in my life. I'd always been drawn to humanism but now seems even more important a time to examine it and one's self.

Good for you!

Over the years I have been part of three covens. They were all wonderful experiences, but I have the need to be solitary at this time. In the future, who knows? We are always growing and transitioning

:-)



Help!!!

Well, Tava Wolf and I are talking about maybe starting our own coven, but we want it a bit looser that a lot of others we have heard about, so who knows
