The Great Father
Listen to the word of the Great Father, who of old was called Osiris, Adonis, Zeus, Thor, Pan, Cernunnos, Heren, Lugh,and by many other names:
"My law is harmony with all things. Mine is the secret that opens the gates of life and mine is the dish of salt of the earth that is the body
of Cernunnos, that is the eternal circle of rebirth. I give the knowledege of life everlasting, and beyond death I give the promise of regeneration and renewal. I am the sacrifice, the father of all things and my protection blankets the earth."
"Hear the words of the dancing God, the music of whose laughter stirs the winds, whose voice calls the season."
"I, who am the Lord of the Hunt and the Power of Light, sun among the clouds and the secret of the flame, I call upon your bodies to arise and
come unto me. For I am the flesh of the earth and all its beings. Through me all things must die and with me are reborn. Let my worship be in the body that sings, for behold, all acts of willing sacrifice are my rituals. Let there be desire and fear, anger and weakness, joy and peace, awe and longing within you. For these too are part of the mysteries found within yourself, within me, all beginnings have endings, and all endings have beginnings."
"Then you shall be taught to be wise, so in the fullness of time you shall count yourselves among those who serve the Ancients; And you shall grow to love the music of the Woodlands, to dance to the sound of His pipes in step with cloven hooves and the forest song..."
"And you shall learn the Mystery of Rebirth, filling your heart with Her moonlight, growing in harmony with the Earth, as Her children, protective of your Mother..."
"And you shall grow in wisdom; and you shall grow in compassion. And in love shall you heal the sick, pursuing the arts of healing, the lore of the Mother's herbs...learning the psychic arts...to cure, to nurture, to help Her children grow. And in wisdom you shall give counsel, knowing the skills of divination, seeing how the children best flow in Universal Harmony, understanding planetary cycles and knowing prophecy."
"Thus will you be the Wise Ones, knowing the lores of Nature; the Wiccans of the heaths, of the countryside, the pagans of the cities, knowing all
are One to the Mother; knowing all are One to the Father."
"Let thy life and the lives to come, be in the service of the Lord and the Lady."
