Gods and Goddesses

Although everyone has much varied beliefs, you should be open to accept that everyone may be correct.

This is my belief, not to be confused with others. I believe in the energy of the ALL. Which can be broken down further to femine and masculine energy( God and Goddess). I believe that all goddesses are one Goddess, and that all gods are one God. I believe the different names(Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Isis, etc.) are different aspects of the Goddess herself. Just like a woman has many different rolls in life-maiden, lover, seductress, teacher, guide, mother, wise-one, healer, etc., as does the Goddess and God.

Sometimes I pray to the Goddess directly. Sometimes I invoke a particular aspect of the goddess during a ritual to guide and direct me on my path. Your path is up to you to find...it will feel right when you have found it!
