Brewing Up Trouble Wicca And The Us Military

Brewing Up Trouble Wicca And The Us Military Cover

Book: Brewing Up Trouble Wicca And The Us Military by Robert Maginnis

It is quite possible to maintain an army that is totally male, totally white, totally heterosexual and totally monotheistic. However, in its wisdom, the U.S. army became integrated a few decades ago; they have allowed women into an increasing range of assignments. They do not reject those gays and lesbians who stay in the closet. Finally, they are now formally recognizing small minority religions. At each step of the way, doomsayers raised the specter of damaged Military preparedness. History has shown their concerns to be without merit. As armies are increasingly directed at peace keeping, an force that is racially, sexually and religiously diverse sends a Powerful message to the people being helped. Kosovo and Bosnia are two potent examples of the power of religious diversity in the military.

Robert Maginnis is concerned that if the Army allows Wiccans to hold their services on-base, then non-Wiccan soldiers' "readiness factors such as military values, adherence to norms, willingness to kill, and recruitment and retention..." will be undermined. This is because he believes that most soldiers regard "witchcraft as an abomination."

Witchcraft Magic Across The Ages

Witchcraft Magic Across The Ages Cover Across the ages, the magical practices of British Traditional Witchcraft, or "Trad Witchcraft," have been as important to the Trad Witch as breathing air. Magic is seen as simply another aspect of Nature, an added dimension of spiritual religious existence. Trad witchcraft is the historic withcraft of old Britain and is not Wicca, which dates from the early 195o's.

The Traditional Witch has always been highly spiritual . We view the concept of God, as the universal consciousness that is evident in the world that surrounds us. Indeed, it is a core belief that Nature is the the very same as God. Consequently, Nature is divine.

Magic itself is nothing more than the use of the forces of Nature, forces of God, to change or modify our reality to suit the desired outcome intended by the Trad Witch. Thus, magic is, when directed correctly, a divine act, comparible to prayer, which fosters positive change witnin the individual, their family, community, and our Mother Earth. It is an intended force for change, of creative modification.

It can be used for any of the following purposes:

* For personal growth and transformation.
* To protect oneself and family.
* To improve their life and the lives of their family.
* To heal themselves and to heal others.
* To remove barriers and impediments
* To aid in obtaining a intended goal.

The magical arts can be a meaningful force for good in our lives, if we are willing to learn how to use it properly.

Magical results are never coincidence. Magic is based on the belief that Nature unfolds in an orderly manner, and these events can be known. With this information, one can control or alter the energy surrounding these events in manner that will effect and change outcome.

Magic, to most people, seems rather incomprehensible, something weird and supernatural. Nevertheless, magic is something very different. For, rather than being something beyond knowing, the magical arts are within the reality of Nature, and affects our lives with ramifications to both the spiritual and physical planes.

The spellcraft of Traditional Magic is particularly potent because the Trad Witch has knowledge of techniques that endow magic. While these techniques are not commonly thought of as applicable to magic, they go back in use in British magic for over a thousand years, if not longer. The terms commonly used for these techniques today, "meditation" and "visualization," are certainly not the same terms used our history, but their names do not matter. The substance of what is taught does.

A final idea: Traditional Witches subscribe to an very old concept of proper conduct called the "Law of Return." This is a principle found in physics, which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It is by this high principle that every Traditional Witch knows full well that when an action is taken or they send a magical spell, the energy of that action or spell will eventually return to the sender in full force.

The rule of thumb is to always use caution. Traditional Magic can be a wonderful and potent force that can add to our quality of life, but only if it is used in a wise and constructive manner.
