Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


I think that along with the study of Paganism, we can incorporate some of the homesteading [sign in to see URL], learning how to identfy plants and what they can be used for, etc.

Not sure we'd actually get into rituals and such, but you can do things that your DH may not even recognize as particularly Pagan. How you arrange things in your [sign in to see URL] to put plants for the best [sign in to see URL]'s not JUST Feng [sign in to see URL]'s also [sign in to see URL] there should be some things you can use within all of [sign in to see URL] we do [sign in to see URL] won't tick off your DH, but will give you some of the benefits.

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


I study and study I have always enjoy talking to people of different faiths so I started studying before I knew I was doing it.

I read online. I use to do a lot of chatrooms before they all turned into robotic porn central. Got to pick alot of great brains from a varied group of paths and countries.

Books, I still come across books to read and you cand find information in books you would never think of.

Unfortunately, in my opinion, I think we lost our greatest teacher and possibly my greatest inspiration, [sign in to see URL] was needed in the "world".....he's around, just not here.
He would have been a fascinating addition to this "Study"..

Playful, that's usually the best way to [sign in to see URL] pick people's brains! And yeah, the chat rooms have gotten [sign in to see URL] on Yahoo! Oh [sign in to see URL] are bad!

Queeny, I agree. Muladzh would have been an absolute asset to a study group, and like you, I miss him terribly. I miss his wisdom, guidance and his rather dry wit.
Maybe one day he'll miss us enough to want to come back! He'd be accepted with open [sign in to see URL] would any of our former members.

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


Not actively at the moment but I do find it is interesting to compare religions and how individuals interpret them. I would much rather hear about them from the "horses mouth" so to speak. Therefore I ask people who I know practise the religion and whether they can suggest any reading material. I don't look myself because I know how misleading things can be.

At university, I did a course on Muslims in Europe which did tell you a little about the religion but mainly focussed on how people were treated and also how they related to other religions which wasn't quite what I was expecting it to be.

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


I have come to the point where I just study things (different faiths, religions, practices) for curiousity more then anything else.

I tend to search for the unifying factors in everything and ignore the rest.
I don't even identify with any specific "belief" or "thought practice" anymore. I am simply me.

The two universal threads I've found through everything is Kindness and Living with (caring for) the Earth.
How can you argue with that?

So I garden (indoors and out). I preserve as much of our own food as I can (and I'm always learning more). Last but not least I've been studying herbalism. Whether it be folklore, crafts, cooking, or medicinal.

That and the Wilderness are my passions (asides from my beloved wife and children of course).

So I guess if I had to take a label nowadays, it would simply be "a student of the earth and her mysteries".

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


I've been thinking on this some more.

In my past I've been called a strong "prayer warrior" (amongst Christians). In my past I've been called a natural "seer". In my past I've been called a "powerful witch".

I'm honored to be called all of those, but I do not believe I am any of them.

I am simply a normal typical guy who has faced a serious midlife crisis and decided to try and sow love, peace, and happiness where he is able.

My latest "project" is making sachets with various flowers/herbs. I make each one up for various people and when I do I try to infuse each one with thoughts of love/peace/happiness/power/strength or whatever I feel is needed.

Each recipient takes such gift in their own unique way depending on their own life walk. Christians, Pagans, Atheists, or whatever each identifies themselves with.
Such labeling is not my concern, only my own intent.
They will recieve the gift as they are meant to in their own walk.

(Upon rereading this I do not wish to give the false impression that I am anything special!!! I am merely a flawed individual crawling through the wonders of life as I am able. Nothing more, nothing less)

Re: Studying paganism (or another religion)


Curious, I am kind of where you are at the moment. I'm not exactly affiliated with any one group with any distinction of religion.

Like you, I've been called a 'strong prayer warrior', and I've been told I have the potential to be an extremely strong witch and I know I am a strong 'seer'...but that does not define who/what I am. It is only a small portion of me. It's simply something I can do, and always have been able to do.

I like your description of yourself.

Right now, I'm too tired to make a very coherant [sign in to see URL] will try to revisit this topic in a day or so.
