The Nature of our Way
by Scott Cunningham, Wicca for the Solitary Practitioner, 1988

As often as possible, hold the rites in forests, by the seashore, on deserted mountaintops or near tranquil lakes. If this is impossible, a garden or some chamber shall suffice, if it is readied with fumes or Flowers.

Seek out wisdom in books, rare manuscripts and cryptic poems if you will, but seek it out also in simple stones and fragile herbs and in cries of wild birds. Listen to the whisperings of the wind and the roar of water if you would discover magic, for it is here that the old secrets are preserved.

Books contain words; Trees contain energies and wisdom books never dreamt of.

Ever remember that the Old Ways are constantly revealing themselves. Therefore be as the river willow that bends and sways with the wind. That which remains changeless shall outlive its spirit but that which evolves and grows will shine for centuries.

There can be no monopoly on wisdom. Therefore share what you will of our ways with others who seek them, but hide mystic lore from the eyes of those who would destroy, for to do otherwise increases their destruction.

Mock not the rituals or spells of another, for who can say yours are greater in power or wisdom?

Ensure that your actions are honorable, for all that you do shall return to you three fold, good or bane.

Be wary of one who would dominate you, who would control and manipulate your workings and reverences. True reverence for the Goddess and God occurs within.

Look with Suspicion on anyone who would twist worship from for their own gain and glory, but welcome those priestesses and priests who are suffused with Love.

Honor all living things, for we are of the bird, the fish, the bee. Destroy not life save it be to preserve you own.

And this is the nature of our way.

Religion is for those who are afraid of going to Hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

If being outdoors is a problem. Might I suggest a book by Trish Telesco. The Urban Pagan.
Good book of ideas for those that live in the concrete jungle. Super nice lady, fun and down to earth. I interviewed her back around 94.( for her book victorian grimore (sp)....

Good book though

Outdoors should not be a problem for any Wiccan!!! The roof of a building is as good as a mountain top, and any urban garden is as good as the woods... it is all a mind set and how you percieve your surroundings and use them .

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

I'll definitely get those books you are talking (well writing about). Wicca is definitely interesting me. I feel really connected to that.
