For various reasons I am feeling the need to dig into myself a bit and pull out a little old fashioned Witchy good news and Pagan evangelism… here goes…
I am Geoffrey, or Pax, and I am blessed to be a Witch. A servant, worshiper, and beloved child of the Goddess and God. I found Witchcraft when I was a young man in his late teens and early twenties looking for himself, looking for faith and philosophy, hoping to define his ethics and values and morals. Witchcraft, and Paganism, my dear Paganfolk, helped me to find it, and so much more.
The Horned God of the Witches, as Herne, or Pan, or Cernunos you may have heard of Him. He is born and grows and lives and dies, then he travels through the mysteries of the otherworld to be reborn, each year. His love and his strength are offered freely to us, if we would but open our hearts to it and to Him. His wisdom enlivens the mind and his compassion holds us close, for whatever the trials and travails we face in this lifetime, He too has faced. He knows, and He cares.
The Great Mother, The Lady, the Threefold Goddes of the Moon who is Maiden and Mother and Crone. She is magick, and too inspiration, and poetry and song and determination and fiersome inteligence. As a poet, and Witchcraft’s especial midwife, told to us; Her love is poured forth across the lands. If we spend every moment of our lives singing of Her we could but describe Her shadow.
They are the Ebb and Flow of All of Creation. The light and dark, the Yin and Yang. They are present in every atom and cell of Creation, and Creation is but one atom, in one cell, within Them.
They have led me in my life thus far to seek after wisdom, and learning, and idealism, and humor, and hope. Their loving example has helped me to open my heart to the love of a good and decent man. Their patience and love has helped me to open my heart further than I though possible, seeking to follow Her law “Love unto all beings”.
Their loving kindness and flowed into me and opened up the doors of perception and compassion within me; through Them I have opened places in my heart for other Gods and Goddesses, while still remaining true to Them.
When I catch sight of the Moon through the clouds, or I see the noonday clouds perfectly reflected in the windows of a sky scraper, They are there; for They are always there and always with Me and always there waiting for you.
They are not the only Gods, nor is Witchcraft the only Pagan path. There is wisdom and honor and values and faith and a rightful relationship with the Gods in any of the Faiths, Pagan and non-Pagan.
Yet for me, whatever other Gods I open the doors to my heart to, and whatever other paths I walk in my journey as a Pagan; I will always be a Witch. I will always treasure my time with Them and Their lessons and love.
Bliss, and Blessed Be.
