If today, like every other day you wake up empty and frightened
You don’t have to open the door to the study and begin reading
You can take down a musical instrument
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the earth
Our semi-seasonal theme for late spring will be “Practice”. We Naturalistic Pagans talk a lot. Some Naturalistic Pagans have no spiritual practice, per se. For some, living an ethical lifestyle is a spiritual practice. Others practice meditation. Other Naturalistic Pagans perform rituals, either solitary or in groups. Naturalistic Pagan rituals may be similar or dissimilar to other Pagan rituals. Beginning May 1, we will be talking about how we practice our Naturalistic Paganism — or how we don’t. How do you experience your religion in your flesh? Send your submissions to humanisticpaganism [at] gmail [dot] com.
