Wicca is an Earth-based religion that honors both male and female deity known as the God and the Goddess and gives reference to the Earth. We believe that we are put on Earth to live in harmony with nature, never to abuse it. The Wiccan ideal of morality is simple: do what you want, as long as you harm none. This rule contains another unwritten condition: do nothing that will harm yourself....
I will love and Harm no one.....
I will live, love, die, and love again
I will meet, remember, know, and embrace once more.......
For the free will of All, and with Harm to none....
As I will.......
It is now done.
SO MOTE IT BE !!!
Bide the Witch's law ye must
In perfect love and perfect trust.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill
'An harm ye none, do what ye will'.
What ye send forth come back to thee
So ever mind the Rule of Three.
Follow this with mind and heart
Merry meet and Merry part.
Anyone interested...I have made a web page on Wicca... you can find it at http://www.angelfire.com/shahlaa/BlessedBe.html

That's your motto... Blessed be. I remember the first time I seen that in writing a couple years ago under one of your uploads... After that, I always noticed it... and just like the first time, everytime I see it, I get the Beetles singing in my head "Blessed Be" instead of let it be... can you hear them?

Is it really an old wicca rule "do what you want, as long as you harm none" or wasn´t it a statement by Aleister Crowley? How ever, a wonderful made image again!!

Wiccan morality is largely based on the Wiccan Rede: If it harms none.. do what ye will. Which is usually interpreted as a declaration of the freedom to act, along with the necessity of taking responsibility for what follows from one's actions and minimising harm to oneself and others. Another common element of Wiccan morality is the Law of Threefold Return which holds that whatever benevolent or malevolent actions a person performs will return to that person with triple force. This I already have observed and believe. Where do I sign up? Gotta love a religion that doesn't impose dogmatic rules and old fashion non-productive (harmful) rules and laws on not just it's followers but everyone within reach, regardless of their personal beliefs. Anyway, excellent image Marcy.. Hope all's well in your world.. Hugs & Kisses from a fellow Naturist.. Dave :^)

wow awesome lighting! Awesome colors, Awesome image! David seems to know a bit about Wiccan ways. But I've learned that magic is magic and knows no good or evil. The Threefold Return may hold true if you fear the very thing you are calling? good, evil, is in the heart of the practitioner. If you fear what you are calling, should you be practicing? Anyway great image M'Lady !
