immaterial witness ,substance of spirit, shape of memory, formless essence

A  social magical inoculation takes place at young age on the cusp of our memory.
Something involving -opportunity-access-attention-repetition-
A deeply rooted relationship with our senses, the way we feel and the way we think.
Somehow we know what we like.
Somehow like things come together-collect-assemble-arrange stimulating each other.
It is not the specifics of the systems ingredients combination, or dosage, but the frequency of interaction that triggers the response , catches our attention.-holds our interest
Focus-Fun is a fluid constantly changing moving Energy release  .
It is a Human Craft, It is Our Fire, It must be fed, It's Glow. warmth a product of the hidden power hidden within the twigs and branches that are
Momentary           Food
.Definition and form are ash and dust
Temporary containers
What is left behind after the party is over, the rules and instructions are not as vital as the  enjoyment shared .

Luck and Learning and Love

Over Twenty five Years ago ,I  found  new ways
Sound and light are both moving energy  that we perceive in cycles of subtle variation amidst a repetitive scale or spectrum., somehow differentiating bits of information from one another,detail
Stimulating the attention, tightening the focus,expanding the awareness
Nurturing creative growth,deeper examination,

My Neo -Pagan Druid Group worship experience begins with learning
Look it up in Books!
I had to find Names and Holidays , that I was not familiar with.
New Languages, different perspectives,understandings,Puzzles.
It was never about having all of the right answers.
It is always about   source ,
Where did you get that from?

Unlike the Paleo - Pagans who lived immersed in the customs and rituals of their time
The Neo-Pagan is is challenged with making a group ritual experience within a broader community culture unfamiliar with the Who's, whats and whys of the season.
Many don't know it, others deny it but , At the root of it,Neo -Pagan Druid Group worship is Educational.
Do you get it?
Think you've got it?

No singular monolithic Big Deals, instead lots of regular little deals,
like breaths, or steps.
Speak out loud and move about
 Something  special social short symbolically sanitary significant sacrifice sharing seasonally sacredly sent
not for the benefit of self ,or status in the worship group, staying in touch with all of the Spiritual Kin, the invisible beings that are watching,connections that are yet undiscovered.
Give it Time, it adds up,the spiritual response is most often not in the exact form or time expected
results are an idea in your head, Ritual construction,direction,planning, management all say more about the wills of people than the ways of the Spirits.

It is not what you think you hear, it is how you listen, not what you think you see but how you gaze.

Beginning with what I did not Know

         The axis of what is not familiar -with- becomes the point of reference.
                                           a focus of discovery.
uncertainty a portal to other places,
outside of our mind ,
beyond accumulated thoughts and habits into the unknown
Goddesses  and Gods of many shapes and many Names are Very Real and currently Active, 
Independent Identity's with wills  of their own.
They operate outside of the Human Psyche,

They are  not  imagination or belief
as wished for or wanted
knot a head game

strange but true

It has not been My own direct experience,knowledge, or wisdom of the ways- but that of others.
                                                                kind of Magic
