Learning and Growing

I had to take some time to look deep inside myself. While posting my comments in the "Back in the Broom Closet" thread, I was so focused on trying to be the right one, I was so focused on proving others wrong, that I failed to remember actual facts that I already learned. My quest to be right overrode my knowledge. What was I thinking? I KNEW that potions had to consist of more then just one ingredient...I KNEW that. When I realized I was wrong, I hate to admit but I was so embarrased, and I really sunk very low, and really put myself down. How could I fail to see facts through such a quest for dominance? I must apologize for my inaccuracy through selfishness. I had to realize, that it was truly a learning experience. That my failure to realize a truth I already knew, didn't make me a dumb person. I had to look deep inside myslef, and remember that I am still learning, and this experience has helped me grow not just as a Pagan, or a Witch, but as a person. I think that recognizing our faults, and learning from them, truly helps us grow. I had to remember I am smart, that I am strong, and my faults only show my humility and wisdom. One's path will forever be learning, and growing from one's experiences.  (Sep 2, 2012 | post #1)

When referring to ingestion, yes it means to either swallow, or absorb, but potions don't necessarily have to be used on oneself, you can use it on various places or things as well.  (Aug 23, 2012 | post #26)

Filthy Pagans? Ok, I think I've been nice enough. Listen here you disgusting fraction of a man. You obviously aren't intelligent enough to know a couple of things, #1, sacrifce is something that hasn't been used in quite some time now, but in your case, I am sure we'd be willing to make an exception. #2, unlike Christian based religions, when we get together, we don't require our members, family, and friends to give out there money to prove their devotion. And of course your mention of "Ancient Azzholes" is ridiculous also, lol your grammar sucks...what people fail to realize, Paganism has never died. When Christianity took over, we still had our people practice in private to avoid being brutally killed by cowards...and now that we're free to practice openly, believe me, we're not going anywhere, and I believe the number of us out there, will only increase.  (Aug 23, 2012 | post #265)

Actually that's not correct. Not all potions are made to ingest. Some are made to wear as a perfume, and some are made to sprinkle in areas where a certain outcome is intended. Pagans and Wiccans also use what you call "Holy" water, we call it "Blessing " Water, we charge it with "Blessing " Energy, or as you like to call it: "Sanctify " it. And you can charge it with one or more different types of energy, which in my opinion, makes it a potion  (Aug 23, 2012 | post #22)

actually it is defined as a liquid or liquid mixture  (Aug 22, 2012 | post #18)

Typically potions do have more then 1 ingredient, but Holy Water, or Blessing Water is considered a potion because you can charge it with protective and healing energy and use it.  (Aug 22, 2012 | post #16)

So my question is: Are they going to ban items that other religions like to call "holy water"? Holy Water is used by Catholics and many variations of for baptisms, blessings, dispelling evil, and cleansing...sounds like a potion to me, so if potions is one of the items being banned...doesn't that fall right in?  (Aug 21, 2012 | post #9)

Wow, so I'm a worthless POS? You're entitled to your opininion, even though you don't know me... Just because someone uses contraception, doesn't mean they sleep around. There are many people out there who are in monogamous relationships that use it because they're not ready to have children...seriously, you should really think about what you say before you post  (Aug 21, 2012 | post #203)

I think they should have to provide coverage, there's a way to respect others who are different from you without agreeing with them. If they don't believe in contraception then they personally don't have to use it, but if their employees do, then it's the law that they have to provide it. Freedom of Religion doesn't mean forcing your beliefs down someone's throat. If there was a law that stated it was against the law to provide the coverage, then that would be catering to a specific religion, discriminating against all others.  (Aug 21, 2012 | post #200)

I personally think if they're going to do that, then they need to ban the sale of ALL religious related items. Unfortunately since they're a private company, they have the right to decide what they sell, and what they don't. They have the right to be hypocrites.  (Aug 21, 2012 | post #2)

Religious freedom. One can believe in what they want, and that even means switching religions. From the day I was born, I was taught one thing...Christiani ty is THE religion, and everyone else worships a false God, everyone else is wrong, you're either Christian, or you'll suffer "eternal damnation". As an open minded person as I have always been, I decided to do some studying, and researching of my own, and realized that my lack of connection to the Christian God deserved some looking in to. I realized Christianity wasn't the only religion, I found out that being Pagan doesn't mean you worship what Christians like to call "The Devil", the "Devil" is something they concocted to scare people into believing in a made up religion, they feared us so they made some #$% up. I chose to be Pagan, because I realized I have been Pagan all along, I just had to find myself, so really you can say, my path chose me. Being Pagan, I have never been more spiritually at home in my life. And let's just say for instance, the Government said tomorrow they were taking away freedom of religion, and they were going to kill off anyone who didn't agree with them, you know what? I wouldn't conform, and I would die for who I am and what I believe in now, I would, and that's a passion and spirituality I've never had before I realized I was Pagan. You want to believe in a made up religion, that's your right, freedom of religion gives you that right, but we as Pagans also have the right to be who we are, and there are more of us out there then you think, and guess what? We're not going anywhere! I have family and friends of all types of religions back rounds, and let me tell you, ALL of them, even my mother and father, know I am a Pagan Witch, and they love me, and accept me, and they don't judge me, talking to them isn't like talking to a brick wall, but talking to the Christians on this forumn is, and the fact that you'll probably never realize just how blind you are, doesn't surprise me  (Aug 19, 2012 | post #178)

For your information, Pagans haven't "gone out", there are more of us out there then you think, and we're not going anywhere...do you realize how #$%&* dumb you sound?  (Aug 19, 2012 | post #177)

Ricky Gervais: Are You Sure Fundamentalist Christianity I...

Also, addressing the fact that the only accepted religions back then were Christianity and Catholicism, if any Christian or Catholic were seen experimenting or accepting Pagans and their religion, they weren't sentenced to death like Pagans, however they were beaten in public with clubs....hmmmmm  (Aug 16, 2012 | post #2)
