There comes a time, I am bold enough to state, in the path of real pagan and wiccan's practice, that they start to yearn for more information. We are given the basics, and the guides; the source and techniques to magickal practices, and communing; but then I find that the heart searches for advanced spirituality.
In my experience, and this is something that many authors have admitted, publishers, or pagan books, rarely contain the information for more advanced people, who have overcome ritualism, but wish to partake in a deeper sense of the religion they practice. This can either be accomplished through extensive meditation, and self analisis; but one would also like to see pointers, and read. This is my personal position on the matter.
So I question, why is obtaining a pagan spirituality less important than spell casting? For those who practice a partial solitary path like myself (although all practitioners eventually have an eclectic moment), I have been able to quench my thirst with different methods. But I wonder, and it troubles me, what is pagan spirituality now a days? Has it been turned into a ritualistic religion with absolutely no deeper thinking; or has it become a more evolutionist way of living that sets aside the practical and focuses on the spiritual. How spiritual is Wicca today?
I find many mass thoughts disturbing, and I know many of us do follow a pagan spirituality. But,Is there information out there that helps our newer generations draw the line between pure physical, and the soul? That helps them achieve the state of continuum, rather than staying in the same level; because it seems, that some how the only things people look to advance on are the magick side, but what about the side within?. The focus on a relationship with divinity rather than, the focus on our egocentric for power and rebellion?
