Finding Your Way to Change the World
By Irish Flambeau
As you’ve probably discovered by now, most forms of Witchcraft have the underlying belief of “immanence”. Immanence means that Goddess and God, Creator, Great Spirit or even the Great Metaphor (according to my Unitarian friends), exists right now, right here, as part of this world. As Witches, we know that we belong here, embodied, and this is a joyous thing. Being alive on Earth is how we connect and participate with Goddess and God; not by some future transcendence into a cotton candy heaven.
Once you start to see Deity present in the world, it naturally follows that you will notice that humanity is really doing a number on Her. The most important radical act that you can do as a Witch is to acknowledge the Earth as sacred. This flies in the face of all our Western cultural conditioning. The next step is to find ways that you can actually live this belief; ways that fit for you and your life. Discovering your personal values and living them as best you can is what defines you as a Witch.
