Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Do you know what I get asked about the most?

I was writing about what sets pagan sexuality apart and it came off like me bragging. So that’s probably not a good topic.

For a while I stopped reviewing the site email.

Do you know what I get asked about the most?

Pagan sex. Love potions. And curses. In that order.

Most people don’t want to know about paganism.

They want flashy cheap answers to their problems. In easy to swallow pill form if possible.

They want to believe they are victims to mysterious forces that are out to get them.

They don’t want to take responsibility. They want to be saved.

I’m tempted sometimes. With a few less scruples I could make tons of cash from some very gullible people. There’s a part of me that still longs for the thrill of exploiting people and knowing that mostly they are too lazy and foolish to fight back.

And then I remember the promises I made and the oaths I keep. In the immortal words from
Doctor Who, “Good men don’t need rules.”

Like attracts like. Remember that well. It's one of the most basic rules of life. You want success, go find successful people. You want failure, go find people who don't believe you can do it. You want magick, go look harder at life.

If our dreams seem small, it's up to us to make them greater. We need to make our own, not reach for the dreams of another. We can make it our Journey, or we can live the Story of another.

Make it better today. Keep polishing.

Know yourself. Know what you can do. Know what you're willing to do. Know the price you're willing to pay.

Some of the pledges I made.

I’m NeoWayland. I can help if you can stand truth.

That’s the biggest promise I ever made. It’s the restitution I owe.
