Life seems to move faster every day. Goddess knows that since I sat down and started writing this, I’ve popped up to get the laundry out of the dryer, clean up after the cat, and help my husband unload the groceries. And that’s just on the weekend! It can be hard enough to juggle all the mundane responsibilities of daily life. Who has time for spiritual matters on top of it all?
As tempting as it sometimes is to let our sacred practice slip to the bottom of the list, spirituality is a vital part of our health, happiness, and overall well-being. As Pagans, we’re at a bit of a disadvantage when it comes to making time to worship. Other than the Sabbats and the occasional full moon gathering, most of us don’t have any routine structures of worship in place. While it can sometimes be frustrating not to have the weekly church service to attend, this also allows us a lot of freedom. We can craft a devotional schedule that suits our lives and our own individualized practice.
