Regardless of your beliefs about god/gods/goddesses etc., some religious and spiritual writings contain things that simply feel right, or make you feel good or enlightened. I thought I'd start by sharing one that I read, from the Wiccan religion. It's the end of a longer passage called "The Charge of the Goddess," and it really affects me:

Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess, she in the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven; whose body encircleth the Universe; I, who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white Moon among the stars, and the mystery of the waters, and the heart’s desire, call unto thy soul. Arise and come unto me.


For I am the Soul of Nature, who giveth life to the universe; from me all things proceed, and unto me must all things return; and before my face, beloved of gods and mortals, thine inmost divine self shall be unfolded in the rapture of infinite joy.


Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honour and humility, mirth and reverence within you.


And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not, unless thou know this mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.


For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning; and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.

Do you realize who the Star Goddess is?

Around here and much if not all of Britain at one time she is Arianrhod, Celtic godess of the stars and moon. Isn't there a game of that name?
