The Magickal Universe

Where Magick is a way of life!

Paganism's 10 Commandments (version 1)

1. There is more than one God and Goddess.... respect each individual's right to honor the God or Goddesses of their choice.

2. All things are created equal, and each thing is created in an image of the All.

3. Do no speak ill of the Gods, for each thing that happens happens for a purpose or reason that we may not yet be privy to.

4.  Keep your holy days sacred. Whichever of the holy days you chose to observe, follow them in your own way and preserve their memory for your children.

5. Honour our elders for they hold much knowledge. Follow the instructions of your parents and bring honour to their household. Insist that your children do the same.

6. Honour Nature and the spirit of the Earth; do not destroy any of the God or Goddesses creations without just cause.

7. Regard sexuality as sacred and do not defile it with abusive acts, or use it as an excuse to degrade others.

8. Do not set yourself up higher than anyone else, nor take tangible items from another, nor steal their thoughts and present them as your own.

9. Do not speak falsely of others; neither gossip nor lie.

10. Do not covet what others have; rather, treat your belongings with respect and care.

10 Pagan Commandments (version 2)

1. Thou art Goddess.

2. Spirit abides in all things; words and names have power.

3. Maintain an attitude of gratitude; walk the talk.

4. Honour the ancestors, teachers, elders, and leaders.

5. All life is sacred.

6. All acts of love and pleasure are sacred.

7. Whatever you send out returns three-fold.

8. Love is the law; love under will.

9. As above, so below; as within, so without.

10. For the greatest good, and it harm none.

Note: #2 is modified from the Emerald Tablet and the Hermetic tradition; 7 is from Valiente's Charge of the Goddess; 9 is from Crowley (Liber Legis?); and of course 8 and 10 (and to a slightly lesser degree 1) are in wide circulation, though I'm not sure where they started.  3, 4, 5, and 6 appear to be original wordings of common Neopagan theological stances.
