Religious Freedom is Sacred

People came to the New World for fortune and adventure, but some came to worship the Divine according to their personal experience. Religious freedom was a fundamental right before the men of conscience who found this nation (USA) to set people free. It is part of the historical record.

The regard some hold for an intimate relationship with Spirit is amazingly deep. It is sad that strong passion can also blind people, as some wish to ban personal beliefs that do not conform to specific standards. They would deny to others what they hold dear for themselves, and they show no shame. They wish to enslave the human spirit.

The quality of religious beliefs are measured by the personal conduct of the believers, not their numbers. Efforts to enslave and harm the human spirit never speaks well of anyone. Religious freedom is sacred.

True Americans hold certain truths to be self-evident.

Reckoning

There is a hidden place within all of us; an occluded place.

A dark place.

It is dark because we want it dark.

We do not want others to see.

We do not want to look.

 

It is human nature; a part of us.

How can we not look?

How can we confess our sins?

Look again.

Who do you think you are?

 

There are infinite shades between black and white;

But only two are pure.

If you do not know yourself for true;

Then you lie to all.

Who do you think you really are?

 

The mouth reveals the heart; there are no real secrets.

Who knows the power of words better?

The righteous judge or the mystic healer?

The Witch knows nobody need be cursed

Whose words fall at their own feet.

 

As you sow, so shall you reap.

What you send out returns.

Simple, ancient wisdom.

You expect heaven,

But show no grace?

Dryghtyn

Dryghtyn is All.

Keter, The Crown,

The Source from which all things emanate.

The Tao that is not the Tao,

The Alpha and Omega,

Essence,

Mu.

 

The Dryghtyn Prayer

In the name of Dryghtyn, the ancient providence,

which was from the beginning, and is for eternity,

male and female, the original source of all things;

all-knowing, all-pervading, all-powerful, changeless, eternal.

 

In the name of the Lady of the Moon

and the Lord of Death and Resurrection,

In the name of the Mighty Ones of the Four Quarters,

the Kings of the Elements,

Bless this place and this time and they who are with us.

-from Crowther’s Witch Blood

(The Blessing Prayer)
