October is only ONE week away!
Steven Posch says the best answers to questions of "why" in religion are stories. #PaganSquare
If you ask those who practice it, “Why skyclad?” twelve will get you thirteen you'll hear something along the lines of 1) energy flow, 2) social equalizing, and 3) a sense of separation from the ordinary.Those may all be good answers, and they may even be true answers, but they're modern answers.

Archer writes about the positive side she finds in fear. #PaganSquare
Fear. We’re in it all the time. The cancer patients I teach, friends on the financial edge, my husband who has nightmares about an intruder glimpsed in childhood. Sickening rush or low-level hum, fear is a constant that shapes our lives. I don’t...
Dr. Mays, our new Native blogger, shares some examples of indigenous women in film who *aren't* stereotypes. #PaganSquare
Native women of the Indigenous nations on Turtle Island (what is now called the contiguous United States)—along with their sisters around the world—may not often make it onto the front page of the New York Times, but they are nevertheless the...
Every now and then we hear rumors about a forthcoming reality TV show about Witches. The funny thing is that we have one, it just isn't being filmed. We can, however, "watch" it all over the Internet. Someone recently referred to it as "The Real Housewives of Witchcraft" show - although a lot of men are involved as well.
Sadly, I see so much hatred, bickering, plotting, loathing, lying, seeking of vengeance, and worse than all, I see attackers not caring about the collateral damage they cause to others who are on the outskirts of their target. Is this really who we have become as a People?
What comes from the mouth first thrives in the heart. Do our words and actions reflect our spirituality? Do they reveal the way others should see us, I mean what is true about us? Do our words and actions make our hearts feel good in the moment, or do we mistake that good feeling for what is actually us getting high on what is toxic?
If our words and actions don't uplift the spirit, but instead are arrows of ill will, maybe it's time we check in with ourselves and see if the light is still on.
It is my sincere wish that we don't rush to think the worst of one another, but that we linger awhile to see the best.
