So That We May Have Strength and Truth

Tuesday, November 18, 2008
As I continued my personal journey through this Creed, I realized that I gained strength through doing so. This strength was emotional, in that I was more stable and level-headed. And it was spiritual as I came closer to living and realizing my true Will, which is really just the Will of the Gods and the Universe.

But then the dilemna arose. How do I continue to live in Love and Light? I thought that I must have some ethical code to live by. Some set of virtues to adhere to. For as the old saying goes, 'Pride goeth before the Fall'.

This ethical code and the need for it is embodied in the single word, Truth. Live a life that will enable you to never have to lie about anything that you do. If you do nothing that you are ashamed of, or have the need to be, then why would you have to lie about doing it?

Yet one must also be vigilant in pursuing truth and a pure method of living. Simply saying I can do whatever I want, as long as I harm none does not cut it. Too many Pagans I have met, do not have a moral compass. And I feel that it is important to have a strong moral compass so that you know how to shape your life and give it some form of structure.

Blessed Be!
