Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Gifts from the gods

No matter how beautiful the form, god inspired crafting is meant to be used. It's dishonorable to receive a gift from the gods and put it on a shelf just to look at on special occasions.
Okay, so yes, it's self-referential.

Doesn't mean it's not true though.

May you find your own god-gifts this equinox.

I can think of no other faith group that actually celebrates the nutcases as gifts from the gods. There is no politically correct way to describe it. People who would be shunned in any other circumstances are actually put on display to show how tolerant Paganism is.

Can't keep the magick

Those parts of the Divine that you touch, you can’t keep the magick to yourself and still be pagan. You have to send it out. We take the Divine Gift and share it.

I can’t hoard the magick

Gifts from the gods were not meant to be put behind glass and never used. I can’t hoard the magick. I have to put it back out in the world.

So here it is neighbors. Take it, use it, do something with it. Leave the world a little better than when you found it. Pass it on.

Modern American pagans are especially bad, we tend to celebrate some of our worse nutcases as gifts from the gods.
