This Post Is a Spell

Let me tell you something else about witches: we don't hold with self-pity.

Feeling sorry for yourself (and poisoning the lives of those around you with your whining) concedes powerlessness, and that's something else we don't hold with.

Witches don't whine. We do something.

What we do, of course, varies from situation to situation. We specialize in indirection. Witches don't usually go for frontal assault. Instead, we look for a way around. Or under. Or over. Or between.

When you hear that sing-song “poor me” whine start to come into your voice, strangle it at birth.

    Magic only happens with action -- 'the doing of it' to paraphrase you. Inaction is the antimatter of the craft. Get up and do!

I recently came across these five questions posed to "Pagans who believe that the Gods are merely psychological archetypes and are created by the mind of [hu]man[s]." I will answer each in turn. (But first, let me say that I object to prefacing the word psychological with the word "merely" -- something I've written about before here.)

1. Do you believe that the Gods can assist you with anything physical in nature? If so how can the Gods assist you with anything physical in Nature given that they are only psychological?
