This World vs. The Otherworld, part 2

I had no comments on the blog to last week’s piece, but I had several private responses, plus one on the Ethical Witches list. And they all said basically the same thing (though in very different ways): don’t worry about it.

Some focused on my need to go deeper into my own spiritual practice. Others focused more on the individual nature of contemporary Paganism and the resulting uselessness of worrying about what our faith at large should be. And several encouraged me to have faith – faith in the process, faith in the Divine, and faith in a plan I can’t see.

So I thank all of you who offered your thoughts – they are appreciated.

About John Beckett

I’m a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids. I’m an ordained priest in the Universal Gnostic Fellowship. I’m the Coordinating Officer of the Denton, Texas Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans. This year I’m also serving as a member of the Board of Trustees of CUUPS National. I’m a member of the Denton Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
