Patheos-Pagan: Get Over Your Fear of Religion!
A couple weeks ago I made a comment on a friend’s Facebook post about the differences between Christian religion and Pagan religion. In response, someone else (who I don’t know and therefore won’t name) said:
BELIEVE YOU ARE A CREATOR
“Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.”
— Shakti Gawain
We hold the power to create whatever we desire. Our ability to manifest the changes we desire depends on the depth and passion of our beliefs and on the focus of our attention.
With this understanding, we, as individuals and as society, can design a whole new future for ourselves. Our challenge is to break free of society’s world view, to truly empower our imaginations to create brand new realities. It brings a whole new meaning to ‘vision.’
What do you passionately desire for your own life? For the planet?
“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The non-existent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.”
— Nikos Kazantzakis

“When you dream, you dialogue with aspects of yourself that normally are not with you in the daytime and you discover that you know a great deal more than you thought you did.” -Toni Cade Bambara, in Sturdy Black Bridges (1979)
Dreams are a place where we can figure things out about ourselves. They help us to see what motivates us, what our true desires are, and where we are headed. They help us to become more of who we really are!
