LAWS

I did not write these it is yet another excellent insight written by Scott Cunningham. It concerns Laws that should rule our life and be kept close to our hearts. It is, as almost all of his writings, another item that should make its ways to your personal Book of Shadows. Scott is no longer with us in the physical sense, yet his spirit and work still guide us and inspire us. Let us honor him and his refreshing & invigorating works!


THE LAW OF POWER

By Scott Cunningham

THE LAW OF POWER

The Power shall not be used to bring harm, to injure or control others. But if the need rises, the Power shall be used to protect your life or the lives of others. The Power is used only as need dictates. The Power can be used for your own gain, as long as by doing so you harm none. It is unwise to accept money for use of the Power, for it quickly controls its taker. Be not as those of other religions. Use not the Power for prideful gain, for such cheapens the mysteries of Wicca and magick. Ever remember that the Power is the sacred gift of the Goddess and God, and should never be misused or abused. And this is the law of the Power.

(* Wicca - S. Cunningham)

A Personal NOTE: A note I would like to make concering the acceptance of money for the use of power. I feel that it is neccessary to maintain some type of value exchange when working for some else and using the power. This exchange can be, but not always, in the form of money or services or barter or some such items agreed upon. Anything less would cause the balance needed to create a successful connection to be out of whack. One must always focus on the balance and harmony of the universal powers accessed for success to be achieved ...this is only my opinion.... Lady Wolfen Mists

Here is yet a second creation by Scott concering The Law and how it should be held in your hearts, actions, deeds, words and in general over every day life's


THE LAW

By Scott Cunningham

THE LAW

We are of the Old Ways, among those who walk with the Goddess and God and receive Their love. Keep the Sabbats and Esbats to the best of your abilities, for to do otherwise is to lessen your connection with the Goddess and God. Harm none. This, the oldest law, is not open to interpretation or change. Shed not blood in ritual; the Goddess and God need not blood to be duly worshipped. Those of our ways are kind to all creatures, for hurtful thoughts are quite draining and aren't worth the loss of energy. Misery is self-created; so, too, is joy, so create joy and disdain misery and unhappiness. And this is within your power. So harm not. Teach only what you know, to the best of your ability, to those students who you choose, but teach not to those who would use your instructions for destruction or control. Also, teach not to boost pride, forever remember: She who teaches out of love shall be enfolded in the arms of the Goddess and God. Ever remember that if you would be of our way, keep the law close to your heart, for it is the nature of the Wicca to keep the Law. If ever the need arises, any law may be changed or discarded, and new laws written to replace them, so long as the new laws don't break the oldest law of all: Harm None.

Blessings of the Goddess and God on us all.

(* Wicca - S. Cunningham)
