Merry Meet )O(
I would like to know a brief explanation of your believe of creation and how everything came to existence.
- Leland asserted that he had found a witch in the Tuscan mountains of Italy near Siena. That he proposed survived there from ancient times. He based his work on a manuscript known as the Vangelo Delle Streghe (Gospel of Witches) That he said given to him by a women called Maddalena, whether this individual existed or not is a moor point.
The Vangelo is considered to be fraudulent by modern historians. Whether Maddalena and Leland was the culprit continues to be debated. All scholars agree that Leland's claims on ancient lineage of Witchcraft have no basis, in fact some Wiccan's attitude about the work are varied. Some believe it to be true, others see that while it may be forgery, this doesn't necessarily undermine it's value as a creation myth or as a source for Wiccan rituals.
The Vagelo contains an allegorical creation story called How Diana made the stars and the rain.
I quote from the Vangelo:
" Diana was first created before all creation. In her were all things"
" Out of herself... she divided herself. Into darkness and light she was divided. Lucifer, her brother and son, herself and her other half was the light"
" And Diana saw that the light was sobeautiful, the light which was her other half, her brother Lucifer, She yearned for it with exceeding great desire. Wishing to receive the light again into her darkness, to swallow it up in rapture, in delight, she trembled with desire. This desire was the dawn. but Lucifer, the light, fled from her and would not yield to her wishes, he was the light which flies into the most distant parts of heaven, the mouse which flies before the cat"
" Diana therefore consulted with the Fathers of the beginning as well as the mothers, the spirits who were before the spirit, and lamented that she could not prevail with Lucifer, She was advised that to rise she must fall, to become the chief of goddesses, she must first become mortal. Diana took the form of a cat and manifested on the material plane to become as one with the God. At first Lucifer was angry, so to maintain union of creative forces and his love She hummed a song, it was as the buzzing of bees. she spun the lives of all men, all things were spun from the wheel of Diana, Lucifer turned the wheel.
So Diana provided vibratory energy (the song) whilst he provided spinning motion by turning the wheel. They gave the universe form and movement; the vibratory energy created the structures and was complimented by a spinning force.
Together the Goddess and God can be seen to be the essential nature of existence.
