As an Agnostic myself, I get exactly what you're saying Al.

Personally, I tend not to "believe" in anything very much. I suspect a great many things; I suspect, tentatively, that some of them may even be true, in some sense; but I don't believe any of them. That way, if new information and experiences come along, I don't have to change my "beliefs"; I just have to move my suspicions around a bit.

This philosophy, if you can call it that, derives from many, many observations, over far more years than I care to count, that those whose "beliefs" rest on the least amount of real evidence seem to be almost invariably the ones who are the loudest, fiercest, most obnoxious and most inflexible in their defence of them - on the basis, presumably, that "He Who Shouts Loudest, Wins."

Blessed Be everyone, "believers" or not,

Make your own path, it may not be one most traveled, but it will be yours. Fit it to your needs and make it something you are satisfied with. You are the only person that can do that.    Blessings

Owl is my spirit brother . So Lady M , the Owl and the Pussycat .

In the past Owl were called cat's with wings . While cats are the most common companion of Magical people few know what they give to their two legged servant . Cat being creatures of the night they take away the fear of the dark be it nighttime or the dark side of Magic. The walk the border of  the two worlds . They open the sight to that which is hidden . They teach that one can be independent and to be able to handle things by themselves. This has a bad side to it , that is the loneliness of not being able to commit to another . One starts to become so used to be alone they fear change .

Owl is another creature of the dark , it can also show you there is nothing to fear in the dark . Owl's are the guardians of knowledge and do not share it easily . Owl highten one energy of the third eyes perception , clairvoyance and clairaudience are enhanced .

The insight is enhanced so they can see others in their true nature . Mediums will find that the Owl give them a better , clearer vision of what they see . They give a calming effect to those that they aid , allowing them to calm those that are troubled with their words .

Being a being of both fire and air can bring about the gift of prophecy . From the Moon they impart healing power .

Like the Cat , Owl's can flash into action and will endanger themselves to do what is right .

Good memory J ..... I carved it as a Yule present for someone. I couldn't think what to get her but I knew she liked Puffins, so I just got to work on it.

Bluedjango, if you're still around, I have to say I'm not entirely ignorant of mysticism either. I've read everything from Jakob Boehme to Sri Chinmoy to Ken Wilber, and taken two years' worth of meditation courses; the course leaders got very annoyed with me for asking questions they had no adequate answers for. "You're in your analyser; it gets in the way of (capital T) Truth", I was told, repeatedly. They seemed to forget that we humans come equipped with analysers for a very good reason; another name for "analyser" would be "baloney detector". We were discouraged from using our analysers, I decided, because it would have been just too easy for us to conclude that they were peddling snake oil and, of course, stop paying them money. Others combined a touching sincerity with appalling ignorance; I've been told, with a perfectly straight face, that "all food turns into sugar in the body", that an amethyst ring someone was wearing "isn't a crystal, it's a gemstone," and that beryl isn't a proper crystal because it doesn't have pointed ends. Sitting for hours in intense meditation with these people quickly lost any allure it might once have had (there was this beautiful exotic dark haired girl - but I digress).

Thus I came to the conclusion that mysticism was a waste of my time (and, incidentally, money), and had no real-world application to practical Witchcraft. I tended to agree with Robert Graves, who in his classic "The White Goddess" (page 479) described Samadhi (eastern mysticism) as "a psychopathic condition, a spiritual orgasm .... the most refined form of solitary vice imaginable." Harsh words perhaps; but justifiable in the circumstances.

Blessed Be everyone,


Thank you for your reply, in the form on non-prescriptive self-reflection ( meditation ) I engage in Mysticism is shunned.
You may be very knowledgeable but learning to be open only works if one has ones heart firmly grounded in the reed
