As often as possible, hold rites in forests, by the
seashore, on deserted mountaintops or near tranquil lakes.
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 the cries of wild birds. Listen to the
whisperings of the wind and the roar of water if you
would discover magick, for it is here that the old secrets
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 it's 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.
Honor all living things, for we are of the bird, the fish,
the bee. Destroy not life save it be to preserve your own.
And this is the nature of our way.
