Neopaganism is based on the
ancient worldwide religion of Mother Nature.
It is unlikely that
much of the original thought structure truly remains of the ancient worldwide
religion of Mother Nature.
There is no set dogma in Neopaganism as
each cell of Nature worshipers devises its own belief systems and rituals.
Rituals will be largely dependent on environmental
conditions within which the cult resides and ritual takes place.
Belief systems will be dependent on
the thought process' and mindset of the members of each unique coven, in turn,
dependent on local Goth.
Since Nature takes a
central role in these groups dogma is modeled more closely on easily identified
aspects of Nature.
Neopaganism springs from outside Abrahamic religious
thought and attempts to free the female
psyche from the psychic bonds of Yahweh.
True Neopaganism uses
magik ritual to change internal perception through recognition of unseen
aspects and patterns within Nature.
Neopaganism has no use for the complex rituals devised by Ordo Templi Orientis
of Theodor Reuss or the Theosophical Society of Aleister Crowley to be
enacted in a temple setting no different than that of
