This May Sound Like a Dumb Question...
« on: February 04, 2011, 05:13:46 PM »

But I am so used to being a Christian and still have some fears and doubts about it, even though I recently left and am NO longer with it, but am recovering from it all.. But it will take some time and it is normal.

But the question I'm trying to get at here is... I listen to rock music all the time and all heavy metal and all "secular" type music of rock. But can it or will it take away my spiritual or Wiccan development as well as between the Divine? Don't think I'm stupid or something, but I'm so used to being a Christian and being judged for certain things, including rock music that I think I will be judged or loss of spirituality or religion or any practices because of my past..

I know that in Wicca it is my heart that is the number one thing to listen to and follow, and I should follow it, but any suggestions?

Thanks.

Listen to whatever the hell you want.

I've got smooth jazz going right now.  Doesn't make me any less Wiccan.  I'm reasonably sure the gods don't really give a damn what I pollute my ears with.

Watch whatever movies you want, while you're at it.  Read any book you feel so inclined to pick up, too.

Eat whatever (though eating healthy would still be a good idea), and pay no nevermind to those who would say otherwise.

This is WICCA! *kicks bigotry into a deep pit*

Yes, thank you. I am just *SO* used to being judged by Christians who lie and do all these things. Rock isn't the only music I like; country, blues, and jazz.. *Mumbles something about liking everything except rap*

Yes, I hear witches do have a good diet - but all are different. It's like saying only a cop has a gun.

Thank you for your information and suggestions..

Yeah, I won't. I will let go and let be, I guess.. The Beatles are good, I believe they had some "rituals" that Wiccans and pagans did.

True, true enough...

Are you SURE?

Quite sure.  Music is music.  Wicca is not defined by what its adherents listen to.


Are you SURE?

I've always held to this belief.  I, personally, would rather ask a question and risk appearing foolish, than to assume I know the answer and wind up proving myself foolish.

To whit:

The Beatles are good, I believe they had some "rituals" that Wiccans and pagans did.

What, exactly, are you referring to here?

Where did THIS come from?  (NOTE:  Not a big Beatles fan...)

Yeah, I was a bit thrown off by the Beatles reference, too...

I think the more important question here is How do YOU judge yourself?  You will always find someone else to judge for you, but at the end of the day you have to live with yourself.  I am not wiccan but do know they do not have the strict standards of Christianity, nor the accompaning clergy/congregation to judge yourself by.  Bottom line: know thyself

I think she mentioned the Beatles because I mentioned them first.
