Your path?

How'd everyone decide on their path?

I just kind of thought about it and was like eh this works. Like it aligns close enough to my goals and beliefs so I decided to be a sort of druid.

One day while walking my dog I was catapulted OOB by a zap of telluric energy - something I didn't yet know existed. So afterwards I wanted to know what hit me. I found info on ley-lines but felt it was not yet "it". A few years later while walking down the street my guide's voice told me I'd "find a way in that bookstore" I was just then walking past. The book I bought was Cunningham's Guide for Solitaries, & believe me when I say witchcraft was the furthest thing from my mind at the time. However his book provided a way to the missing pieces from my ley-line researches thru links i learned in circle casting experiments. Since then I kept on reading & every so often I get another piece, like following a trail of bread crumbs. Each crumb ties to my lifetime of woo-woo experiences. So far WC is the only path that makes sense.

Do you feel the Craft helps stabilize your life?

Stabilize my life? I mostly just practice occasionally and I use a little energy work to help me stay warm in the cold

I would say it was half exploration and trial and error... many years of experimenting, finding what works for me, what makes sense, what aligns with my morality, that sort of thing - and half being undeniably called to a particular group of deities and spirit work, and being unable to ignore that.

I started with learning other methods to improve my health which got me started with crystals and chakras. Then I started meditating which got me connected to my guardian angels and shortly after that, I became aware of various groups like Ascended Masters and Deities. My Primary Spirit Guide came out of a group of Deities and guided me as to what I was to study which includes spell casting.

I looked into Wicca and Druidry at the same time I was reading about crystals and chakras. A few years later, I started calling myself a Druid because it felt right plus I was guided that Druidry is my path.

My Family built 3 churches. Baptist Churches.

I started reading the bible when I was very young. I was fascinated by religion from an early age and I had questions.
People interpreted my questions as lack of faith and I was slowly turned toward atheism as a way to deal with my unwillingness to simply accept dogma.

My interest in faith and religion never subsided so I started reading about other religions and philosophies and practices.
Jesus led me to Mohammed, Mohammed led me to Abraham, Abraham led me to the Gautama, the Gautama led me to Vishnu, Vishnu led me to the OGDOAD, and they led me to Zoroaster.
At that point I had to reconcile that there was more. So much more. There were all the other systems from Africa, and central Asia, and the Steppes, the islands, and the Americas.

I just kept learning about new systems and cosmologies. Ultimately I concluded that all of those systems were rooted in understanding nature and they all originated from a standard dualism that was slowly homogenized for the exclusive benefit of men.
So I chose the path that came before these systems. The path that acknowledges the sacred duality of nature and time.

Well, stated HopefulChild. My path is pretty matrifocal. I see the oneness through monism but I feel many religions evolved from nature in such a manner that they became muddled overtime and turned into systems to control people, thus becoming patriarchal. It gets worse when humans think they're above everyone else, including nature.
