Lables

Why as humans do we feel the need to label ourselves?

By sexuality, religion/spirituality, class, colour, nationality.........

I find a need to pigeonhole myself, as if this will some how help me to know and understand my self. I feel so often that unless I know "what" I am I will never know "who" I am.

I just want to accept myself and know myself and be happy about myself - why do I need these statements in order to do that?

An Open Book

Today I woke to find the book I'm reading open at a different page to the one I was reading the night before - I have been Reading this book for several days now and every night I leave it open to the page it was on so I can carry on reading in the morning.

The page it was on was the 13 principles and the wiccan rede.

Is this trying to tell me something?

Of Gods and Godesses

I'm currently reading my way through Complete Idiot's Guide to Wicca and Witchcraft - by Denise Zimmermann and Katherine Gleason.
I'm finding it hard to relate to Gods and Goddesses as entities - I get the "All" part, I'm happy with the Divine within you, me, nature and the cosmos, but I can't feel happy with the Lord and the Lady as separate entities of themselves.

Can I call my path a Pagan Path when I can't get my head round this?
