The Circle Comes around again



Magickal growth is like a spiral. You travel along the path, and sometimes revisit old issues. But you see these old issues in a new light because of the growth you experienced in the past. You are higher up the ladder of that issue....solving it becomes closer and closer.....till it no longer is an issue.

 Learning, I suppose, can be like that. Each time you revisit a theory, you see something there that you did not see before and you knowledge of the thing expands.

The reason I am going down this discussion is because I feel the need to do it all over again. Witchcraft learning, from scratch. Now that I know what I know perhaps I will see something more.
To begin again, without the giddy headed elation, with out the giggly happiness feeling of finding a new paradigm. To approach witchcraft with a seriousness that was not there before, and re-absorb the knowledge and the principles which were looked at already.
One thing I found in my previous journey is that there was not enough lore, wise words, or daily inspiration for one walking the path. Perhaps I would find some this time or be able to write some using the base energies that swirl around every issue.
Travelling the world is hard enough, one needs a code to live by. Even though I am aware that searching for the code can lock ones mind into a lifestyle which does not leave a mind open to other possibilities, I am willing to take the journey of learning again.
Maybe I will make some more new rules.......so I begin again.

I agree, learning is much like a circle, and you tend to revisit old theories and beliefs that you once thought you understood pretty well. I wish you best of luck on your endeavour. Currently I am going through this phase but I have this "happy giddy feeling", this "falling in love again" feeling because I saw something HUGELY important and understood something HUGELY important that for some reason, my eyes were blinded to before.

Also my thoughts on this issue...you said previously in your post and I quote:

"One thing I found in my previous journey is that there was not enough lore, wise words, or daily inspiration for one walking the path."

And:

"Travelling the world is hard enough, one needs a code to live by."

For me, I found the solution to this was when I found resonance in a 'mainstream', over-arching world-view that provided a framework of ethics and morals which I adhered too ( and of course I agreed with 100% ). Witchcraft for me is an additional spiritual practice which gives me a nuanced, deeper view of reality and spirituality. I don't think one spiritual path/ practice could ever totally satisfy an individual...our soul is always hungry and searching...

Well that's just my view, thought I'd share it. You can be free to disagree with me but I thought I'd post it because I have been/ am going through this issue currently.
