    Don’t live by your own rules, but in harmony with Nature.

    The Pagan philosophers teach that by cultivating goodness we can purify ourselves of our selfishness. This breaks the chains that bind us to our illusionary ego-self, freeing us to experience our true divine nature. Central to the Pagan path is accepting whatever life brings us as our divinely decreed fate; surrendering the illusion of personal power and recognising ourselves as ‘puppets of God’. This is not passive resignation, but actively engaging with the things as they are by being a willing vehicle of God’s unfolding purpose in the universe.

    Man as he is has ceased to be the All. But when he ceases to be a separate individual, he raises himself again and permeates the universe.

    One cannot see God as long as one feels ‘I am the doer’. Fully awakened souls are beyond virtue and vice. They realize that it is God who does everything.

    Ramakrishna
