Thirteen Goals of a Witch


 



                                                    1. WE PRACTICE RITES TO ATTUNE OURSELVES WITH THE NATURAL RTHYM
                                                     OF LIFE FORCES MARKED BY THE PHASES OF THE MOON AND THE
                                                    SEASONAL QUARTERS AND CROSS QUARTERS.

                                     2.WE RECOGNIZE THAT OUR INTELLIGENCE GIVES US A UNIQUE
                                                  RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS OUR ENVIRONMENT. WE SEEK TO LIVE IN
                                                  HARMONY WITH NATURE, IN ECOLOGICAL BALANCE OFFERING
                                                  FULFILLMENT TO LIVE AND CONSCIOUSNESS WITHIN AN
                                                  EVOLUTIONARY CONCEPT.

                                      3.WE ACKNOWLEDGE A DEPTH OF POWER FAR GREATER THAN THAT
                                                    APPARENT TO THE AVERAGE PERSON. BECAUSE IT IS FAR GREATER
                                                   THAN ORDINARY IT IS SOMETIMES CALLED *SUPERNATURAL* BUT
                                                   WE SEE IT AS LYING WITHIN THAT WHICH IS NATURALLY POTENTIAL
                                                    FOR ALL.

                                      4.WE CONCEIVE OF THE CREATIVE POWER IN THE UNIVERSE AS
                                                     MANIFESTING THROUGH POLARITIES MASCULINE AND FEMININE-
                                                     AND THAT THIS SAME CREATIVE POWER LIES IN ALL PEOPLE, AND
                                                    FUNCTIONS THROUGH THE INTERACTION OF THE MASCULINE AND
                                                   FEMININE. WE VALUE NEITHER ABOVE THE OTHER, KNOWING EACH
                                                   TO BE SUPPORTIVE OF THE OTHER. WE VALUE SEX PLEASURE, AS THE
                                                   SYMBOL AND EMBODIMENT OF LIFE, AND AS ONE OF THE SOURCES
                                                   OF ENERGIES USED IN MAGICKAL PRACTICE AND RELIGIOUS WORSHIP

                                         5.WE RECOGNIZE BOTH OUTER WORLDS AND INNER, OR
                                                        PSYCOLOGICAL WORLDS SOMETIMES KNOWN AS THE SPIRITUAL
                                                        WORLD, THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS, INNER PLANES, ECT..AND
                                                       WE SEE IN THE INTER-ACTION OF THESE TWO DIMENSIONS THE
                                                       BASIS FOR PARANORMAL PHENOMENA AND MAGICKAL EXERCISES.
                                                       WE NEGLECT NEITHER DIMENSION FOR THE OTHER, SEEING BOTH
                                                      AS NECESSARY FOR OUR FULFILLMENT.

                                                    6.WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE ANY AUTHORITARIAN HIERARCHY, BUT DO
                                                    HONOR THOSE WHO TEACH, RESPECT THOSE WHO SHARE THEIR
                                                    GREATER KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM AND ACKNOWLEDGE THOSE WHO
                                                    HAVE COURAGEOUSLY GIVEN OF THEMSELVES IN LEADERSHIP.

                                                    7.WE SEE RELIGION, MAGICK AND WISDOM IN LIVING AS BEING
                                                   UNITED IN THE WAY ONE VIEWS THE WORLD AND LIVES WITHIN-
                                                   A WORLD VIEW AND PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE WHICH WE IDENTIFY AS
                                                   WITCHCRAFT-THE WICCAN WAY.

                                      8.CALLING ONESELF A *WITCH* DOES NOT A WITCH MAKE-BUT
                                                   NEITHER DOES HEREDITY ITSELF, NOR THE COLLECING OF TITLES
                                                   DEGREES AND INITIATIONS. A WITCH SEEKS TO CONTROL THE FORCES
                                                   WITHIN HIM/HERSELF THAT MAKE LIFE POSSIBLE IN ORDER TO LIVE
                                                   WISELY AND WELL WITHOUT HARM TO OTHERS AND IN HARMONY
                                                  WITH NATURE.

                                                     9.WE BELIEVE IN HE AFFIRMATION AND FULFILLMENT OF LIFE IN A
                                                    CONTINUATION OF EVOLUTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF
                                                     CONSCIOUSNESS GIVING MEANING TO THE UNIVERSE WE KNOW AND
                                                    OUR PERSONAL ROLE WITHIN IT.

                                     10.OUR ONLY ANIMOSITY TOWARDS *CHRISTIANITY* OR TOWARDS
                                                   CHRISTIANITY, OR TOWARDS ANY OTHER RELIGION OR
                                                   PHILOSIPHY OF LIFE, IS TO THE EXTEND THAT ITS INSTITUTIONS
                                                   HAVE CLAIMED TO BE  *THE ONLY WAY* AND HAVE SOUGHT TO
                                                  DENY FREEDOM TO OTHERS AND TO SUPRESS OTHER WAYS OF
                                                  RELIGIOUS PRACTICE AND BELIEFS.
 

                                                   11.AS AMERICAN WITCHES, WE ARE NOT THREATENED BY DEBATES ON
                                                  THE HISTORY OF THE CRAFT, THE ORIGINS OF VARIOUS TERMS,
                                                  THE LEGITIMACY OF VARIOUS ASPECTS OF DIFFERENT TRADITIONS.
                                                  WE ARE CONCORDE WITH OUR PRESENT AND FUTURE.

                                        12.WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE CONCEPT OF ABSOLUTE EVIL, NOR DO WE
                                                     WORSHIP ANY ENTITY KNOWN AS *SATAN* OR *THE DEVIL* AS
                                                     DEFINED BY THE CHRISTIAN TRADITION. WE DO NOT SEEK POWER
                                                    THROUGH THE SUFFERING OF OTHERS, NOT ACCEPT THAT
                                                    PERSONAL BENEFIT CAN BE DERIVED ONLY BY DENIAL TO ANOTHER

                                                      13.WE BELIEVE THAT WE SHOULD SEEK WITHIN NATURE THAT WHICH
                                                       IS CONTRIBUTORY TO OUR HEALTH AND WELL BEING
