Going Forward

The struggle of running a fledgling coven with students and no initiated coven mates can wear on a person. I doubt my vision, I doubt my abilities, and I doubt what Jack and I are able to do alone. My reminder is that I am never alone. I’ve been building relationships, a network of friends who love and support me. It is ever growing and ever changing. The thing I need to remember is that I am not in charge. There is a Unity above and surrounding all filled with love that will guide us if we take the time to listen. It is so easy to be distracted by the every day struggles of life, of dealing with difficult relationships, and just trying to find purpose.

The purpose of life is to live, and to nourish life in myself and others. Recently I began re-reading the book The Findhorn Garden, and I am filled with equal measures of scepticism and inspiration. The dull task of living a mundane life bring out the sceptic in me. But it is only by embracing inspiration that can I break the spell that tells me there is no magic in the world. Because it is a spell, one that our culture casts on all of us. I am sensitive, I am musical, I am artistic, I have passion, and I believe in magic and miracles. Not because I am delusional, but because Nature itself demands it of me. It’s time to wake up and do the hard work of listening to my inner voice, and believing with my heart and my mind that learning to live and sharing that experience is why I am here. It’s why we founded Hollow Hills Coven, and why we will continue to pursue the path that lets us walk between the worlds of Spirit and Nature, because they are not separate worlds, but one that can be brought together in unity. That the Findhorn community is still going strong reminds me of this, and I am in awe of what they have accomplished.
