Day Thirty-Four

So today the fifth and final element, possibly the most important, Spirit. I read some where that it is the mixing of spirit with the other four, earth, air, water and fire, that gives them their dynamic, their power. Without spirit to animate them the other four are static and unchanging.

Pagans believe that all things have spirit, not just humans as the Christians believe. We don't call or invoke spirit because it is ever present. Because it is present in all things it has no totems, no specific herbs, animals, or stone, it is in all things. It is represented in the five pointed star, the pentagram, versus the four fold cross of Christianity.

I think that while we may not have to invoke spirit, it is good to be aware of it. To consciously or sub-consciously bring it into all that we do. To add that 'living' spark to our live, our loves, and our magick. So Mote It Be.
