Connecting with Other Pagans

Today’s blog post/topic was inspired by this weeks prompt from Pagan Blog Prompts.

How do you connect with other Pagans?

Do you have a local group you can meet with on a regular basis?
If you can’t connect with local people, where online do you connect with people of like mind?
What’s the hardest part about connecting with other Pagans?

Do I have a local group? No. There are some in the immediate area, but I’m solitary by choice and don’t really feel any need to ‘connect’ with anyone in my general area, especially since none of them here will be my specific flavor anyway.

Where online to I connect with people of like mind? I have my own group over on FB, and we’re in the process of getting the PaganMystics community forum/site back up and running, so connecting online isn’t a big problem. I know where to go to find people to talk to, I also know where to go and find people to harass and argue with.

What is the hardest part about connecting with other pagans? This is really the meat and potatoes of the prompt and why I chose to write a post for it.

Personally, I think that the ‘Hardest’ part is that no one is going to be my exact flavor, and those who I get along with best, are so varied in their back grounds and beliefs, that we just come together in a unique and different way. If we were all close enough to come together, and do the face to face thing, I’m convinced that the Universe as well as the Earth itself would become so unbelievably unbalanced, that it would cause immediate doom. I’m talking, end of the world, on such a grand scale, that the earth would no longer exist, and there wouldn’t be another era of earth life… EVER.

Another thing you have to realize, I am very anti fluff, very anti stupidity, and very anti willful ignorance. This is one of the leading reasons why I personally choose to keep all of my practice solitary. I honestly DON’T WANT to mingle with the pagans in my immediate area. Why? I’ve spoken to a few of them online, I believe that if I was forced to listen to their persistent, whiny ass bullshit about Christianity and how they’ve been persecuted against, I’d promptly choke someone out, landing myself in jail. This doesn’t sound like an option that would be a whole lot of fun for me.

I suffer from People Intolerance.  Compounded with a greater intolerance for those who automatically think that since I fall under the ‘Pagan’ umbrella, that I’m going to rally some halfwitted cause and be all anti_____________.

Just not me, so in closing. How do I connect with other pagans? I choose to do so from a safe distance behind a computer screen, for fear of the Earth’s Doom, or my own because my fist will ‘Connect’ with someone’s face.

Thanks for tuning in!

      Why Hello to the Goddess of the Prompts! I do realize that my style of response isn’t always what the prompts are going for, but, I am dreadfully honest and opinionated.

      Thank you for checking in and for the comment, oh, and of course, for the blog inspiration.
