The main thing that struck me in the introductory portion of my book of study for the season on Druidry:
obviously this is
the Druid is firmly rooted in the earth, the land....and that interacting with the world, here and now, is spiritual.
I can't even express how this resonates with me. I have always had an odd pull between the simple earthy magic that I practice and believe in and the way I learned of magic. Basically, as my introduction to magic and Paganism was through Wicca, I learned that there were rules and rituals and things that should not deviate from what was written. Obviously to a great extent I got
over that. LOL.
My alter moves wherever convenient, might not contain the same things from season to season, I sometimes miss moon phases but remember to talk to bugs in the morning fog, I'm not much on spellwork and prefer to immerse myself in what I think of as "natural ritual" or old-fashioned earth magic. For instance - my horse has sarcoids. I'll employ every option. I'll have the vet visit and treat. I'll use home remedies I have researched and I'm not above rubbing a penny on them and placing it in the earth if I feel it will help.
So, despite my very structured beginnings with my spiritual practice, I still continue to believe that what I do magically is much more base, much less ornate, much more a simple acknowledgement in the magic of everyday life.
If you think about it, there is so much going on around us. I find it fascinating. I look at a day in my life: I do a lot of things before I leave my house, including caring for animals and household chores.
I think all magic is worthy and perfect in its own being. I think all spirituality is as well. So long as it brings the seeker what he/she defines as belief and comfort and it is not pushed on or hurtful to others, let it be. Know it, explore it, believe it and shine within it.
Even the most simple (and sometimes least appealing) tasks can bring me peace. Mucking horse stalls is like meditation to me. I feel so useful, grounded and centered when doing barn work. This is spirituality to me just as much as setting up ornate alters and performing complicated spellwork. To me it is probably more spiritual actually - these practical matters. And so in being drawn to the earth this way I am in turn drawn to search deeper into my own path and see where it leads me.
