wicca and the rules

Hello ppl..

Today im goin to tell u about the wiccan religion...
Wicca is a pagan religion, it is more concerned with way of living...
Wiccans believe in love, in harmony, in beauty, in perfection...
They as other pagan religion centred on earth and goddess, however there are other dieties as well....
Wicca and witchcraft is very much closely related, a witch is a wiccan but a wiccan may not be a witch.The wiccans do magick based on the moon phases and other festivities.They follow the lunar month.

The wiccans follow the wiccan rede, a set of guidelines to live a happy life...
The rede is given as

Bide within the Law you must, in perfect Love and perfect Trust.
Live you must and let to live, fairly take and fairly give.
For tread the Circle thrice about to keep unwelcome spirits out.
To bind the spell well every time, let the spell be said in rhyme.
Light of eye and soft of touch, speak you little, listen much.
Honor the Old Ones in deed and name, let love and light be our guides again.
Deosil go by the waxing moon, chanting out the joyful tune.
Widdershins go when the moon doth wane, and the werewolf howls by the dread wolfsbane.
When the Lady's moon is new, kiss the hand to her times two.
When the moon rides at Her peak, then your heart's desire seek.
Heed the North winds mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.
When the Wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.
When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss you on the mouth.
When the wind whispers from the West, all hearts will find peace and rest.
Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Birch in the fire goes to represent what the Lady knows.
Oak in the forest towers with might in the fire it brings the God's insight.
Rowan is a tree of power causing life and magick to flower.
Willows at the waterside stand ready to help us to the Summerland.
Hawthorn is burned to purify and to draw faerie to your eye.
Hazel - the tree of wisdom and learning - adds its strength to the bright fire burning.
White are the flowers of the Apple tree that bring us fruits of fertility.
Grapes grow upon the vine giving us both joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen to represent immortality seen.
Elder is the Lady's tree burn it not or cursed you'll be.
Four times the Major Sabbats mark in the light and in the dark.
As the old year starts to wane the new begins, it's now Samhain.
When the time for Imbolc shows watch for flowers through the snows.
When the wheel begins to turn soon the Beltane fires will burn.
As the wheel turns to Lammas night power is brought to magick rite.
Four times the Minor Sabbats fall use the Sun to mark them all.
When the wheel has turned to Yule light the log the Horned One rule.
In the spring, when night equals day time for Ostara to come our way.
Whent the Sun has reached it's height time for Oak and Holly fight.
Harvesting comes to one and all whent the Autumn Equinox does fall.
Heed the flower, bush, and tree By the Lady blessed you'll be.
Where the rippling waters go cast a stone, the truth you'll know.
When you have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.
With a fool no season spend or be counted as his friend.
Merry Meet and Merry Part bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Mind the Three-fold Laws you should three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow wear the star upon your brow.
Be true in love this you must do unless your love is fake to you.
Eight words the Rede fulfill "And ye harm none, do what ye will."

most of the rede is about the rules to perform magick.....
the two hilighted redes are the most important ones,  according to three fold law, whatever you do, will be returned to you in three folds may it be good or bad.And the final one says that you can do anything but it should harm none.
we will shed some light on initiation,sabaths and magick in the next few days...
take care
blessed be...

RAW and Remote viewing

The last post was more spiritual...
now lets get into some conspiracy...

Most of us would know about these following institutions.

4.ISI-(pakistani intelligence agency)

I believe not many of would have heard of RAW (RESEARCH AND ANALYSIS WING) of India.
like the fore mentioned intelligence agencies, RAW is also accused of number of terrorising activities in and outside india.
well its upto you to go forth and finding out...

According to india daily......

RAW India's equivalent of CIA has advanced quite a bit in recent days. Sources close to New Delhi report that RAW is using advanced satellite technologies and remote viewing techniques to look into foreign intelligence activities within India. Remote viewing is the paranormal activities with psychics that can sense into the future and unknown. CIA in America has used remote viewing for many years. Many times remote viewing has worked very well for the CIA and the Russian intelligence.

Recent days India has seen a massive amount Pakistan's ISI agents arrested all over the country. The situation has gone so bad for Pakistan and Al-Queda that they are looking for reasons what is really happening. Taking clue from CIA, RAW Indian counterpart started remote viewing techniques many years back. They also tried to correlate the remote viewing readings with high tech feedbacks like satellite sensing and imaging. This is being further validated with the agents' report in the field. The net results for RAW and CBI (Central Bureau of Intelligence - equivalent of FBI) are astounding.

Sources say India has locked in close surveillance over most of foreign agencies within the country. RAW has recently expanded the efforts for strategic intelligence. This include spying over Pakistan, China and the Western nations.

The reason for the success is attributable to traditional Indian cultural richness in spirituality and paranormal activities.

The remote viewing activities are nothing new for India. Indians traditionally have been doing it for thousands of years. But now India is doing it for a reason.

Satellite technologies are also helping understand movement of Pakistan's ISI supported militants in South Asia. Sources close to RAW say Pakistan's ISI is more active in Bangladesh and North East India than Kashmir these days. In the field, the agents are confirming these information.

According to some remote viewers, Bangladesh has recently seen enormous amount of violence related to election. Pakistan's main goal is not Kashmir at this time. It is to hijack Bangladesh again and start a covert front on the east of India.

Remote viewing if applied in a wrong way can cause catastrophe and total embarrassment. An ideal example would be the WMD information in Iraq. Seventy-three thousand pages of secret documents have recently been declassified in the United States. The information unveiled the activity of two special groups that worked with extrasensory individuals. The CIA had to acknowledge that it used remote viewers and other individuals possessing paranormal abilities for intelligence purposes.

According to Pravda.Ru CIA's remote viewers initiated quest for WMD in Iraq. Obviously they were wrong at least based on what we know today.

CIA's remote viewing activities has been not all that failure.

"Psychic spy" Joseph McMoneagle also known as "remote viewing agent #001" was shown a spot on the map of the USSR, where the mysterious secret object was supposedly located, as CIA agents thought. McMoneagle put his finger on the map and described the image that he saw in his mind:

"It is a congregation of low stone and concrete buildings. A huge underground warehouse filled with lethal weapons, not only missiles. There are other square and round items there. I see a very high column of smoke, bearing some semblance to a huge lifting crane, rising above the area (it was most likely the smoke of a nuclear blast). The people inhabiting that place are sick. Their hair is receding, their bones are putrefying. They deliver sick children, and they are still obsessed with some idea."

It was quite an eloquent description for secret agents to understand, what kind of an object was located in Semipalatinsk (which is now a town in the republic of Kazakhstan). Then CIA Director Richard Helms moved the paranormal espionage from the category "Research" to the category "Practice." Joseph McMoneagle's success as a remote viewer increased the funding of such unusual activities, not to mention the improved moral aspect. The US authorities spent about $2 million a year on a rather small group of 20 extrasensory individuals in the 1990s.
Other achievements of American psychic agents include: factories making weapons of mass destruction in third world countries, including Iraq (it is not ruled out that the information about WMD in Iraq sprang from remote viewers.) Extrasensory intelligence officers also developed certain recommendations to recruit CIA agents and rendered some other services too.

India's achievement in remote viewing and use of advanced technologies is remarkable in recent days. According to some international experts what really worked for India is not just remote viewing but the availability of the field agents who could confirm the clues from the remote viewers.

stick on folks... more to follow...

Intro to Pagans and paganism

Hi folks,

This is my first blog.this is a good way to convey what you think about a topic, you can spread the knowlege.
well, lets get down to business...

Some of my friend have asked me to explain about wiccan religion, we will discuss it very soon,but
today's post is about pagans and paganism.

It is believed that the word pagan had its origin from the latin word "paganus".
there can be different meaning for the word,
1. The word can refer to anyone who does not belong to main stream religion like christianity,islam,jews.
2. It can also mean a person who is rustic, country bumpkin,
3. It can also mean a satan worshipper
4. It can also mean a wiccan or witch.

Paganism is the oldest religion of the world or to say any religion older than christianity and jewism is paganism.So by this definition, wicca, buddhism, hinduism, shamanism, jainism,etc.. comes under paganism.

Pagans generally worship the goddess, they believe that goddess and god had a union to create this world.They dont have any specific bible to follow but they have to select their own path carefully.

Old paganic religions believed that sex is one way to come close to the creator, the climax they thought was the time people are closest to the supreme power(goddess),this was the one reason why christianity found it hard to accept and the paganism was doomed.there was a point in "da vinci code" authored by dan brown, that there used to be pagan temple, where priestess used to have union with devotees of the temple through some ritual.

Lets get to the main aspect of paganism...
Pagans believe that everything has spirit, and the four elements make up a living creature, these elements are fire, air, water, earth. There is a peculiarity about these elements, they also find their position in astrology, now this can't be coincident they surely have some deeper meaning.
pagans gave every natural force a diety to control it, and worshipped, these dieties to please these natural forces and thought that this would help them escape the fiery of the natural forces.
Gods played an important role in the day today life of a pagan, they used to perform lot of ritual to please these gods. However as the civilizations grew, gods changed position, some gods were thrown and new gods came into being, a good example would be overthrowing of the titans by zeus....also in hinduism, indra and other nature gods had greater power but lost it when the lord vishnu and lord shiva grew in power and the gods were positioned to suit the culture at that time without losing the trust of the vaishnavas and nayanmars.

Lets bust the myth:

1. Are pagans satan worshippers?
No actually, pagans are not satan worshippers, but the advent of other religions in the verge overthrow paganism, projected there gods to be satan, and them to be satan worshippers.

2. Is sex the central theme of paganism?
Yes and no, paganism's core is nature, earth, and fertility(you may say this is sex orientation, but its not, according to them lovemaking is good if u really love the person.

3. Do pagans do magic?
Most pagans are involved in some kind of magic.

4. Do they cast spell?
They do cast spell, but there are limitations to them they cannot help anyone without their concern, they cannot harm anything on the earth or heaven, the spells should not be selfish.(these are theories.....;-))

5. Can i become a pagan?
Yes anyone can become a pagan, but they should do some ground work to get into it.
the religion requires mental purity, integrity in thought, action and words and many more.however paganism is almost extinct, now we have neopaganism with the same central theme but with relaxation of many rules.

6. Can an atheist be a pagan?
Yes some atheist embrace themself with paganism, they dont have any god but they help others, help nature and follow the main theme of paganism omitting the god from it.

If u find anything wrong in this blog, you are welcome to correct, i believe in learning through mistakes.I am sorry if i hurt any religious feelings, but it was surely UNINTENTIONAL.

take care
blessed be.....
