NW94: you're right. The "harm none" isn't even a rule. It's advice. Valiente specifically said it's not a call to be a pacifist. People have twisted it over the decades.

Agreed I always viewed it as way to make us think before we go around causing harm on other people. People really have twisted that sentence I agree especially as I'm sure many wiccans will agree with me if I have to cause harm to a not so nice person to protect a loved one (I'm thinking more the domestic violence/sexual abuse or murderer types) then so be it.

I deal with occasional hostility on an individual basis, and shielding :annoyed:

How I deal with the unseen world is: veeery carefully :evilwitch:

And I deal with lack of community by joining EUTM :mrgreen:

Sometimes I feel lonely in it all...those I live with (NOT my family) are very welcoming of my ways, but they don't really share any of my animist beliefs or express any interest beyond intellectual curiosity in my practices. It's fine and we'll, I know, and it's true that there is a lot of practicality to be had in being truly solitary, but here in the thick of the Bible Belt, I get to craving a sense of community.

I circumvent the isolated feel by engaging in online communities, for one, and also by driving over to a trad witchy shop every so often to shoot the breeze with the fine folks who run the place.
Tell me strange things.
