I've been reading up on Pantheism, and I'm thinking it's more "me" than a lot of other paths...because I was never really comfortable with the "ritual" part of wicca or witchcraft...more nature based...and meditation...ack....I don't know...it's a new direction, and I'm still researching, but I'm liking what I see so far...

maybe my "path" is Eclectic Pantheist Pagan Witch Druid Buddhist Hindu...(and no..I'm not trying to be funny here... I really do like different aspects of each of these...and want to honor each part of what I like....I just...think that if I choose just one direction...I'll be "neglecting" parts of me..but there is so much to try and focus on...being a general Eclectic...Sheesh...I don't know why it's so important to label myself...I know I really shouldn't, and that I should just follow my heart...but trying to organize my spirituality...my studies would be so much easier if I could pick a label to zero in on...Who said it would be easy, right? but keeping my thoughts/studies organized and not jumbled IS important to me...and molding it all into one "path" to walk...instead of several different parts of paths, ... that is the challenge..or is a person not supposed to try to mold their spiritual path? Is what I'm doing crazy? Do I need to step back and try and take a fresh look at my heart? I don't know...maybe. How can I grow and be where I am supposed to be (because I know I'm not there yet...that is definitely clear to me), if I don't keep searching, or researching, all the parts? but how can I organize them? Keep them true to their cores, but meld them to fit my soul?

Is anyone ever satisfied with their path? Feel comfortable with what they are doing enough to "stay the course", do their daily practice, monthly rituals, seasonal rituals? and not think I'm almost there..just not quite. Keep searching...? How did you (if you answered yes to that question) get there? Does this make sense? I'm lost yet not lost...know I'm in the right general area, but clueless as to how to get to the bullseye...my a-ha spot. my niche...

I don't know exactly what this post was supposed to be about...I guess mostly a rant like, or rhetorical question for myself...O.o (confused)

I think some become comfy on their paths but that doesnt mean they never study or learn new stuff or add to.

I think we like labels cuz its how we communicate our paths to others when they ask. People dont like the "I dont need a label" attitude LOL. Its just easier, I think, to say well Im XYZ...give people that ability to identify a bit of what you are about.

I like the term Spiritually Eclectic LOL. Encompasses everything without being overly specific too.
