Patheos-Pagan: Magick is not Therapy
APRIL 26, 2022 BY IRISANYA MOON

The magick I’ve done has allowed me to grow as a person, as a Witch, and as a being who is in relationships with others.
I have engaged with my shadows. I have interacted with godds.

A Note from the Universe
Do you think I ultimately reward those who live in poverty?
Do you think those who toil and sweat from paycheck to paycheck are more likely to inherit the Kingdom than those who work in ivory towers?
Do you think I take special notice of sacrifices?
That I’m pleased when some put the needs of others before their own?
Or that I favor those who strive to live spiritual lives?
Actually, I love you no matter what rules you make up.

“I have found that life persists in the midst of destruction and therefore must be a higher law than that of destruction. Only under that law would a well-ordered society be intelligible and life worth living.”
With everything we’ve been through these past few months, these words ring true, loud and clear. Peace is a process, an ongoing movement that doesn’t stand still. We are all a part of this process, and our contributions to a peaceful society make a difference.
