We bring Pagan rituals to Texas prisons.Although our rituals are essentially Wiccan, we blend in elements from Druidism and Asatru. We visit six prisons and a working on reaching more. All Pagans and Heathens are welcome, as well has Native Americans, Feri, Thelemists, Egyptian Magicians and even Satanists.
Howard I like that you are bringing an option to those who may have trouble finding one! Please check out my site and feel free to use any writings or messages you think would be beneficial to share. http://www.theexpandedgateway.com/
As an ordained Priest myself, I find that alot of people single like the power trip of being the leeder of the group, and have not fully understood how to restore the spiritual body of the followers. There is a restoration that needs to take place in some of these people, expecially if they are in and out of jail. There is a rebuilding that must take place from within to fully restore the mind-body-soul trinity that we all have. As we are all extensions of the source God we all must draw closer to it so it draws closer to us. Following a ritual may make one 'feel' better, but does little to restore the mind body soul trinity....look into the triple spiral.
"I lead a Pagan rituals in six Texas prisons. We have Wiccans, Hare Krishnas, Asatru, Druids, Satanists, Voodoo, Thelemics and many more that attend. We are certainly not all the same, but we have a lot more in common to share than we do with the Christians or Muslims."
You may not be able to leed a ritual from the Tuatha De Danann, I don't know your bloodline first of all, and I don't know if you have direct communication with the Source God...these two things are needed to do rituals in full, to have them visually manafest in this reality...or you could simply be talking to 4 walls :)
Further - Things like Fear and Hatred are not separated from one another, for all is one. This is what The Elven People (tuatha De Danann) has know for many many eons, ALL is truely one.
Crowley gives this example is his book 4 'Aleister Crowley'.
He writes; "Hope and fear are only opposite phases of a single emotion; both are incompatible with the purity of the soul. With the passions of man the case is somewhat different, not to be suppressed, but emotion is impressed from without. It is an invasion of the circle."
With that said, there is an old Zen saying: “Water that is too pure has no fish.”
"Those who wear plastic Elvin ears are not acting out illusion? Yet even those who live in illusion are better off than those who live in hatred or fear."
I don't know much about living in illusion, as I follow what has been given to me by the Source God. God (Him+her=Herm) has given me what it calls "The Wheels of Truths", so I live and follow the Truth, I follow no ISM or IST as most if not all ISMs and ISTs are what one would call BOXED THINKING, confindments of the mind that your creativity and individuality will die in.
Please don't take my words as a personal attack on you...not that you have, just saying.
I personally just find Wicca very ofensive, it's not Elven, yet feels it can take from us what it wants....like Christians steeling peoples minds and souls and converting their beliefs into Christianity
All inclusive indicates that it includes lies, deception, and fakery as well...because that is found in ALL religions :) The Tuatha De Danann and their spiritual understandings are not based in a religion, but in truths, personal experience and the divine conversations (Some, like myself, have direct communication with the Source God) So I personally find it offensive to include that which is of fakery, as well as that which does not belong to you, not to mention that which you do not fully understand...you can not ask a white person to know what it is like to be black, or a china man to know what it is like to be white...sure we may see some of it, but not truely all of it and feel it...somethings you simply can not have.
The world as you know it - all that you see, taste, feel and touch, comprises only about 5% of all of the stuff of the universe. The other 95% is what we have considered "nothing" or the "firmament" or the heavens or mystic Other Worlds. This 95% is multi-dimensional and consists of potential realities that may be perceived.
