Re: Re-thinking the Watchtowers
- I highly recommend that article to get you thinking, as well as a sort
of "rebuttal" to it here:

the "traditional" correspondences don't always work for everyone, so
instead they can be modified to fit someone's own personal situation.
For example, if someone lives on the East Coast, they might have more
of an affinity placing Water in the East, since this geographically
makes more sense to them than the "usual" West assignment.

meditations described. The author says that the newcomer and advanced
person would both find topics of value in the book. I am somewhere in
between those two states, and I did pick up a few good ideas and
things to think about. We thought (at the meeting) that it would be a
good book to add to a list of "Wicca 101" titles.

- Very insightful and I especially like the Yin/Yang reference since the Tao has been very resonant with me this turning.
Has anyone else read the "Tao of Pooh" and the "Te of Piglet"
