""They all have at their core this idea that a person's religious beliefs trumps their need to serve the public," says Robert Boston, the author of the forthcoming book Taking Liberties: Why Religious Freedom Doesn't Give You the Right to Tell Other People What to Do. ..."From the perspective of religious conservatives, there has been too much change, too quickly," says Boston, communications director for the advocacy group Americans United for Separation of Church and State. He says that conservative Christians are uncomfortable with the ways in which recent civil rights movements are changing America into a more open — and more secular — place."
Arizona and other states are considering bills allowing business owners to refuse service to gays or other groups that offend their religious beliefs.

Spreading Kindness
Meadow Linn - Savor the Day

I heard a knock on my front door this morning and saw a friendly face peeking through the window. It was my mom, bearing a huge smile and a beautiful orchid. She surprised me just to say, “I love you!”

While drinking my morning tea, I’d mentioned to my mom on the phone that I was feeling overwhelmed. I’ve been really excited for all the transition and transformation that seems to be afoot this year, but sometimes the weight of it can get pretty heavy. New ventures can be exciting, but sometimes during the buildup, it can feel a bit like riding a pendulum that swings back and forth between euphoria and despair.

As I sipped my earl grey, worries about money, career, love, and health all seemed to compound. At the very moment that I was feeling the most alone, there was my mom to offer a hug and a simple, “I love you.”

The fact she stopped what she was doing and came to see me made all the difference. Being kind doesn’t have to take a lot of time, energy, or money, but it can change the course of someone’s day (or even life). Sometimes spending two extra minutes on the phone to find out how someone is doing is all it takes. Or, it can be a genuine smile when you pass a stranger on the street or a nod of sympathy when you see a new mother struggling with a screaming baby in public.

Last weekend I got a taco at my favorite takeout place. The family in front of me was twenty-five cents short when their bill was rung up. The cashier plunged her hand into the tip jar and pulled out a quarter. The look of relief on the parents’ faces was palpable. No doubt the missing quarter from the tip jar will be replenished ten-fold as a result of this kind gesture.

Almost always, when we perform a random act of kindness, it boomerangs back to us. What we put out into the world is reflected back like an image in a mirror. However, this only happens when it’s a true act of kindness. Being nice because you believe the Universe will reward you carries a very different energy than spreading joy and love because that’s what’s in your heart.

Last week, completely out of the blue, FedEx pulled up in front of my house. The driver hopped out and handed me a green cardboard box. I couldn’t imagine what it was or whom it was from. As soon as he drove away, I tore into the box and found a vase full of flowers and a note that said: “May your day be bursting with JOY! Watch the flowers bloom as your life continues to bloom! It’s going to be a spectacular year!!!” My friend Aimee, all the way across the country, had no idea that I’d been feeling overwhelmed by the uncertainty of my future; yet, she seemed to know exactly what to say and when to say it.

Aimee’s gift of love will come back to her in the most miraculous ways; this I know. When you give genuinely, without strings attached, and you spread kindness, the world suddenly becomes a kinder, more loving, and more generous place.

Just thinking about this act of kindness fills me with warmth and brings tears of joy. The unexpected gift provided love and support at that exact moment I needed it. I realized that if Aimee believes in me, then I have to believe in me too. And, that is powerful. It’s nearly impossible to succeed if your biggest critic lives inside of you.

What can you do today to spread more joy, love, and kindness? What steps can you take to be a better friend, a more sympathetic girl/boyfriend, or a kinder person? Maybe you buy coffee for the person behind you at the drive-thru or maybe you decide to let the guy with only three items in his cart go in front of you at the supermarket. Perhaps you call a relative to say, “I love you,” or maybe you make a delicious meal for your spouse instead of barraging him/her with problems the moment you get home from work. Whatever you can do to be more kind, do it now.

I love this meme from my
 6-week online course. And the message is sooooo true—'Is This For My Highest Good'.
So maybe you’re not used to asking yourself what choice to make for your highest good, so how did that go? It may take some practice, but keep.

This worked well for me for many years - it's a simple, weed-free way to grow lettuce, spinach and even radishes. Take a 2 cubic feet bag of potting soil (I used Miracle Grow), rumple it around quite a bit to loose the soil, poke quite a few holes in the back side for drainage, then lay the bag on a smooth surface that will allow drainage and not get too hot, and cut out the top, leaving about a 4 or 5 inch border all around. Lightly rake through the soil to even it out and loosen it even more, then carefully, and evenly sprinkle the seeds around. I put my salad green seeds in an old spice bottle with large shaker holes, added some cornmeal, shook it all up to mix well and sprinkled them out of it. I put the cornmeal in there to allow me to see that I had covered the soil evenly. If doing radish seeds or spinach, just make lines the depth mentioned on the seed pack, plant the seeds and cover appropriately. For salad greens I sprinkled a lite covering of soil over the cornmeal and seeds and then spray-misted to water them in. I put my bags on metal sawhorses and grates to make them waist level. This kept the bags off the hot concrete and I didn't have to bend over when cutting my salad. When harvesting, just use a pair of scissors and cut what you need - don't pull the plants out. Same goes for spinach - they will grow back almost magically overnight, and you can't tell where you cut. Spray mist the seeds and plantlings at first when watering, until they are established, then you can water more vigorously as the plants mature. You will probably need to water more often, since the depth of the bags are not as deep as a regular in-ground garden. I just kept mine moist, but not sopping wet.

 The Blyssful Witch - Dark Paganism and the Occult
Spiritual and Magical Philosophies – All Goddesses are Not One Goddess

“One curse of modern witchcraft is the chant of ‘all Goddesses are one Goddess.’

They are not. 

Practical magical Work throws dust in the eyes of any claims that they are.

It is all very well to cut the Universe in two, call one part Goddess and the other God, but in terms of getting results, I have found it is better to use more delineated and specific parts.

Calling a Goddess by the wrong name will get the same reaction as shouting out the wrong name when you are hard at it with your Lover.

A hefty bitch slap from a Divine force will knock the idea that Goddesses are simply ‘archetypes’ right out of your skull.

This kind of offence will not be forgiven however many offerings you heap on the altar. Goddesses do not forget.

Get the Name right.

The pagan and occult revival has turned many places into a ‘mummy hunt’. There is book after book detailing the worship of ancient Goddesses, their mantras and rituals and images apparently set into amber.

If the writers were more honest, they would admit that they are liberally troweling New Age cement and setting politically correct keystones into their royal arches…

There are techniques to be taken and lessons to be learned from the past, but these grave windings can become a tourniquet around the limbs of the Living Arte.

It is not just humans that change, Goddesses change too.

They do not remain as they were if they are being worked with.

Neglected Goddesses do appear ‘trapped in time’ and many have gone feral.

You cannot forge a relationship with a living Goddess by living in the past.

If you want to work with Babalon, then say Babalon.

Shout Babalon.
Scream Babalon.
Whisper Babalon.

Be with Her Now."

Remember that screaming Mandrake from harry Potter? Well, they’re real!
European mandrake is native to the Mediterranean region, and Pliny the Elder tells us its root was used by ancient surgeons as an anesthetic, and as a booster for fertility. Today, it is sometimes found in alternative medicines as a remedy for asthma and coughs. Like the American mandrake, the root can be poisonous. By the sixteenth century, mandrake had made its way to English medicinal gardens.
When it comes to folklore, mandrake gets pretty interesting. A number of medieval herbals, such as the Herbarium of Apuleius cite the use of mandrake root as a cure for demonic possession. It’s also recommended as a preventative against witchcraft. Certainly, this idea may be due in part to the notion that a few hundred years ago, illness was sometimes seen as evidence of demonic influence – use the mandrake, get rid of the demon, the illness goes away.
Mandrake became a popular ingredient in magic because the roots tend to bear a resemblance to the human figure – an early example of poppet magic in action. Mandrake roots were and still are often used to represent either a male figure with a beard, or a female with a head of bushy, wild hair.

The plant was rumored to grow under a hangman’s gallows, and it was believed to be death to dig up the root, which was said to utter a shriek and terrible groans on being dug up, which none might hear and live (Harry potter! Ha!)
Use mandrake in your home to ward off negative energy. Consider planting it around the perimeter of your property as a barrier, or place some under your doorstep for protection and fertility. Some hoodoo traditions recommend wrapping a whole mandrake root in a dollar bill and carrying it in your pocket for financial fortune.

Here are some Fund raising ideas you can do at Pagan Pride to make our world greener & show Gaia you still care!

Every dollar plants a Tree! Raising as little as $25.00 in a fundraiser on Pagan Pride day & planting 25 trees will be a gift to the earth & animals that will last lifetimes! This is so easy to do! Even if people all get together & throw in a few dollars that money will start adding up! 25 Trees is a very small goal but even if it was just 25 it really does make a difference.

American Forests

American Forests works to protect, restore and enhance the natural capital of trees and forests. Healthy forests filter water, remove air pollution, sequester carbon, and provide homes for wildlife. Help plant trees to restore areas damaged by wildfire, where critical wildlife habitat has been lost, and to clean our air and water. Every Dollar Plants a Tree!

The moon is full of magic! Image © Getty Images; Licensed to
The moon has been a source of inspiration and power for a long time, so why not take advantage of that moon mojo when you're working on ritual and spellcraft? While each month's full moon has its own unique set of correspondences, there are many traditions that believe that the different lunar phases should be used for different types of magic. We'll also talk about lunar folklore, moon rituals, and what to do with all those full moon names if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.

Lunar Deities
For thousands of years, people have looked up at the moon and wondered about its divine significance. It should come as no surprise that many cultures throughout time have had lunar deities - that is, gods or goddesses associated with the power and energy of the moon. If you're doing a moon-related ritual, in some traditions of Wicca and Paganism you may choose to call upon one of these deities for assistance. Let's look at some of the better known lunar deities. Read Full Article

For many Pagans and Wiccans, the cycles of the moon are important to magical workings. It's believed in some traditions that the waxing moon, the full moon, the waning moon and the new moon all have their own special magical properties, and so workings should be planned accordingly. If your tradition follows these guidelines -- or if you think you'd like to time your magic based upon the phase of the moon -- here are some tips on what sort of magic to perform during the various lunar stages. Read Full Article
