  • *peeks in through the door*

    Hello, everyone. I'm Silverwing; I'm an 18 year old college freshman living in Illinois. I've already posted a few times in the Christian Witchcraft section, but I thought I'd come here too and make myself known. Anyway, to explain my background a little, I was raised Catholic and attended a Catholic school all my life until now. However, while I know many people in my life who feel a deep connection with Christ and the Trinity, Christianity and I never really seemed to click. I've always held a deep belief in the concept of cosmic balance (for lack of a better term), and the duelity of the universe of dark and light, male and female, ect. I've also had an ongoing interest in mythology, and while I've researched Wicca and other pagan spiritual paths in the past, I never seriously considered them until last August when I felt a call to do so totally out of the blue. I found this site a couple months ago, and already I feel like this is the place for me to be! :bigredgri I don't know where this path is going to take me, but I'm quite excited to find out. Bright blessings to you all.
    There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

        No matter how beautifully presented, it's still a plate of bullshit. It never ceases to amaze me that people will still swallow it knowing exactly what it is they're swallowing. ~ Me

          Welcome to MW :bouncybob

          So tie me to a post and block my ears
          I can see widows and orphans through my tears
          I know my call despite my faults
          And despite my growing fears

          But I will hold on hope
          And I won't let you choke
          On the noose around your neck

          And I'll find strength in pain
          And I will change my ways
          I'll know my name as it's called again
          ~ Mumford and Sons (The Cave)

            Hope you find your way!
            From below the dragon / Dark comes forth
            Nithhogg flying / From Nithafjoll
            The bodies of men / On wings he bears
            The serpent bright / But now must I sink
