Wiccan Gods and Goddesses: One Light in a Rainbow of Forms
Wiccans worship an array of gods and goddesses. But with one critical awareness . . .
We are aware that
there is only one Source,
all Gods and Goddesses represent various faces of the Source, and
all beings and objects in existence are likewise aspects of that Source.
So we can play with worshipping this aspect or that as it calls to our souls. But we must never forget that it is a play, and our deepest allegiance is owed to the One behind all the masks.
Yet the Divine Source does not begrudge any form in which It is worshipped.
Whatever calls your soul to awaken, whatever form causes your devotion to catch fire, the One is content.
Worship Any Gods and Goddesses
The important thing is that you do worship.
Dedicating your life and your actions and all your awareness to the Divine is the first rule not only of Wicca, but of life.
This is the only real path to happiness. Anything that generates happiness can be seen to be in some way attending to the Divine.
Even the great sage, Christ, has emphasised as clearly as possible that this is our primary duty:
"And you are to have love for the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment." - Mark 12:30
In a material world, especially one as challenging as our current world, spirituality tends to fall into second place... at best! Yet then everything else suffers.
When you do make the Divine primary in your life, all else falls into place . . .
" Seek ye therefore first the kingdom of God, and his justice, and all these things shall be added unto you." - Matthew 6:33
The Divine Incarnate
So when you worship the Wiccan Gods and Goddesses, or the Hindu ones, the Chinese ones, the Deities of any culture, we are tending the One Divine Source.
Even more so, when you worship the Goddess and Goddesses who share this life with you!
A transformative spiritual practice is to perceive the Divine that lives in every being... AS every being:
Your Mother the Goddess,
Your brother the God,
Your baby the Divine,
Your friend the Source,
Your enemy the One,
Your cat All That Is,
Your Self the Eternal Light.
Until you have an understanding of this concept, it is pointless to talk about Wiccan Gods and Goddesses. Because if you idolize one face of Divinity above others, thinking That to be more true than others, you are cooperating in your own spiritual delusion.
Only when you worship the Deities as mirrors of the All do you step outside the realm of Lies and approach Truth.
