5 Pagan Virtues

There are 5 virtues we strive to live by:

Five Pagan Virtues Diagram

In the real world, these are often difficult to imagine, let alone accomplish.  They are goals towards which we reach.  We choose to reach further then we know we can and willingly risk becoming more than we are right now.

Unconditional Love

The source of all Life.  Every child that is born, comes into this life through an act of love.  First at the union of the parents and then through the love and singular ordeal which the mother goes through to bring the new life into manifestation.  The same is true for every plant and every animal.  Every act of creation begins with the Love of Spirit moving through the union of opposites in order to create a life that is totally and completely new. 

Unconditional Compassion

The substance of Life.  Nature supports every form of life through compassion.  There is water and nutrients for the plants and food for every animals.  Every where we look, we see the compassion that Spirit has for all life.  So too, Spirit has an infinite compassion for us.  If we allow ourselves to trust the rhythms of life and that compassion exists for all of us, Spirit will present more opportunity in your life then you could ever take full advantage of.

Unconditional Respect

The web of Life.  Every being on this world is dependant of every other being for it’s survival.  Positions of authority are illusions, for no one can exist outside the web of life.  We are all dependant on one another.  Respect is due to all life, regardless of its perceived status, for without every part, the web will fall apart.  We do not respect others out of fear, desire or need.  We respect all life and each other because we have all taken up the challenge of life and are all here learning, growing and being.

Unconditional Forgiveness

The ultimate healer.  Through Love, we know Life.  From Life, we learn about all the polarities that make up life, ie: sick/well, fear/safety, sorrow/joy, etc.  When ever we hold onto a negative aspect of experience and believe it to be the only experience, we learn also learn about dis-ease.  Dis-ease piles up through out a life time, becoming more entrenched and seeming more real.  No matter what the dis-ease, forgiveness is the beginning of its healing.  Learning to forgive self release the dis-ease of not being what you expect.  Learning to forgive others releases the dis-ease of others not being what you want.  Learning to forgive Spirit releases the dis-ease of dissatisfaction with what is.  This is a very difficult lesson of life.  Start by forgiving whom ever you are able.  Your real work begins when you start to forgive yourself.

Unconditional Gratitude

The path to Spirit.  Every path has a start, our path begins with gratitude.  If every other idea seems foreign, to big or just out of your reality, then take one step and find gratitude in yourself for one aspect of your life.  Every act of gratitude is rewarded by Spirit with more to be grateful for.  Everything and anything you want in your life begins by being grateful for what you have.  If you start here, Love will find you in your own time and you will find yourself walking the path of Spirit.
