Re: The one thing you are happiest about being pagan?


I guess I'll answer this from the view point "the one thing I am happiest about not belonging to an Abrahamic religion."

I like the fact that I don't have a book that tells me what is right and wrong. I can easily figure that out on my own and I think people would be better off really THINKING about it and coming to their own conclusions rather than simply doing what they are told. I have my own mind and I like to use it!

I agree. People don't think much anymore and that gets them (and everyone else) into trouble.

I am much happier and approach life more calmly since recognizing the oneness and commonality of all beings. No more of the good vs. bad. I don't claim to do this perfectly at all but being able to approach life this way even just a little bit has made life more enjoyable.

Re: The one thing you are happiest about being pagan?


I've always believed it's better to know an uncomfortable fact than to hide one's head in the sand. Stepping away from the Roman Catholic Church at age 13 was my first step toward opening my eyes and thinking for myself as my father tried to teach me. Eighteen years later I like to think my dad, may his soul rest peacefully wherever he may be, is proud of me, and I have friends of many pagan paths to thank for that.

I guess in short form my answer is "I'm happy and proud to be 'pagan' because it helped me become able to see more clearly and think for myself".

Edit: (I do this a lot -- make a post and then realize I have more to say, so please bear with me.) I never felt "God's love" when I was a Christian. I never felt Jesus, or the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Holy Spirit never touched me. I do feel the Gods and the Spirits, however, every day, and that, too, makes me happy.

Corvus....feel free to edit as much as you want!! LOL..you're not the only one who has this problem emoticon
I'd rather you edit and get said what you really want to say, than wish you'd said it and hadn't. Never apologize for having to edit to get it all in there! emoticon

The Balance...not being better than mother earth,,but part of it.
Being free to believe in the truth and being able to walk my path the way mother earth intended.
And as others have said... to be able to think clearly and not be programed only one way to think.
To be free to be at peace with myself. No one has to tell me right from wrong via a book of stories..because it is within myself to know that...without being told. emoticon
Is Grand being a free thinking Pagan!
