Why have I chosen to follow the Dedicant’s Path? Why does anyone choose to begin anything? Most often it’s because it looks interesting. It appeals to us in some way. For me, Druidry offers a way that seems more structured than most. It gives me a way of developing a more physical and emotional side of myself and integrating it with my intellectual side. That’s something I’ve been craving. The DP doesn’t look easy, but that’s OK. I need a spiritual challenge right now.
At the start, I’m not sure anyone knows if something is a path or The Path. I’m very impressed with ADF. I like its balance and its seriousness. There are times, though, when I question whether any path is right for me. While I love ritual and study, I tend toward a kind of apathetic agnosticism. That’s my main reason for wanting to open myself up to spirituality and emotion. I’m also very secular. Not atheist, but strongly supportive of separation of religion and government on all levels. More than anything, though, I’m looking for balance.
