"The heart of a warrior does not lie in inciting conflict, but rather in determining when action is necessary to restore honor and stability. That is the difference between working for a cause in logical way versus responding to one based on pure emotion. We need to beware hidden agendas when our communities are swept up emotionally in a cause." --Heather O'Brien, Heathen Woman #Heathen #Pagan

"I view our interfaith work as being a bit like my gardening. Those of us engaged in it are clearing away the detritus of hatred and misunderstanding built up by a winter of viewing other as 'bad.' We are pruning back our beliefs that we know the 'one true religion,' thereby letting the light of understanding reach deeply into our hearts. And we are planting seeds of compassion and understanding to be shared by all of us around the globe." --Carol Kirk, Wild Garden #Pagan #interfaith

From John Beckett: "What are we to make of those who say they died and went to heaven – or to hell? Are their experiences proof of Christian doctrines about the afterlife? Heaven Is For Real gives us an opportunity to examine unverified personal gnosis in a different religious context." #HeavenIsForReal #upg #gnosis #Pagan #afterlife

On #Voodoo Universe: "Ochosi is traditionally in charge of jails and cages. He is a champion of justice. There is a common prayer that roughly translates, 'Ochosi, come and live in my house, so I don't have to live in yours.'" #Santeria #justice

From Sam Webster: "For a bit over a year we have been outlining the emerging Pagan Restoration, the creation if not renewal of Pagan culture and society and the activism that drives it. I am deeply grateful for the attention you have given me. However, my own work is shifting. I must consolidate my public writing for a time and so I must say good bye to this wonderful audience." #Pagan

On Dalliances with Deities: "the Clarene, as stated, is the foundation, and she is what is giving structure to the Otherfaith. We are messy now, still being created and still forming, but she is lending us the stability we need until we can, in turn, support her as she does us. And with each step to healing we take, we learn better how to honor her. This is why we start with healing and recovery; she is the god of commitment, and so we need to be in a place where we can commit before we take that final step into her world." #Otherfaith #polytheism

On The Witching Hour: "I'm pretty sure the upcoming SALEM series was in the works before AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN premiered, but I am inclined to agree with the i09 folks: this new show seems to want to give the glossy, envelope-pushing FX drama a run for its money." #witches #tv #Salem

Gorgeous writing on Beltaine fires, encountering Paganism in a church, and coming out from Rhyd Wildermuth on A Sense of Place. #Beltane #comingout #Pagan

On Wild Garden: "I learned during this month’s interfaith breakfast is that for a Jewish person watching a holocaust documentary – it is not at all like that horror movie I described. It’s personal. It’s real life for them. What I take for granted as an educational platform is a real life experience a Jewish person lives with every day." #interfaith #Pagan #Jewish #Holocaust

TL;DR? "A witch is a label for someone who has mastered a set of skills and has established communication with the Gods and/or the Dead." Read more on A Witch's Ashram! #Pagan #witchcraft
