What Does the Word Pagan Mean?

Do you know what the word PAGAN means?  According to Dictionary.com Pagan is defined as follows:

1. in historical contexts) one of a people or community observing a polytheistic religion, as the ancient Romans and Greeks.

2. a member of a religious, spiritual, or cultural community based on the worship of nature or the earth; a neopagan.

3. Sometimes Disparaging and Offensive. 

      a person who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim; a heathen.

       b an irreligious or hedonistic person.

       c an uncivilized or unenlightened person.

To be honest, if I would have asked myself this question when I was younger, I would have said something like “evil”, “devil”, “hell”, “unworthy”, and “dirty”.  Anything that had to do with number three above.  I was a born again christian and was made to believe this through coercion, fear, and threats through the church. This was a deep seeded belief for many, many years.

It was around 2007 when I started to let go of those beliefs and headed myself, my life and my soul to the more natural, earthbound, loving belief system; Paganism. I have been studying a lot since then and have found that the scientists have been studying the same things I have. I discovered quantum physics about 3 years ago and epigenetics last year. These 2 sciences have confirmed what my beliefs are now.

I am not posting this to persuade others to leave their beliefs behind and follow mine. I would never do that. I love that we all have FREE WILL and can choose what we want to believe.  I also like INFORMED DECISION-MAKING. The purpose of this blog is to educate people about paganism in all its forms.

At this time on this planet we need to all love each other no matter what we believe or which goddess/god we worship or commune with. We need to understand history and not destroy it. We need to honor each other at the soul level as we are all unique souls on this planet just trying to learn our soul lessens.

Thank you for reading and remember we are really all in this together. I challenge you to give each person you greet during a day a compliment and watch what happens with them but also notice what you feel at the end of the day.
