Forgive me, I'm a little late on Halloween...
Since I was a little kid I was fascinated by witches and magic. I know, you must be thinking, what kid isn't it? But my relationship with it went a little further than loving witch movies and dressing up for Halloween. I read many books on the religion itself, I practiced some rituals, bought some objects, and almost converted to Wicca.
I was raised in a catholic family but my mom has always adapt a philosophy called Spiritism. I was always open to hear philosophies and ideas including Wicca and Buddhism.
But I'm not here to talk about religion. I have pretty much found what makes my heart happy and when someone asks, I usually say, my religion is love. If everyone stopped with their rules for a second and just followed one, LOVE, the world would be in a much better place right now.
Back to the book, The Witches of America. Alex Mar talks about a religion that has near one million americans involved. And I thought I was one of the few people that even took this philosophy seriously.
I haven't got the courage to read the book yet, why? Mostly because I'm the most scared person you will ever meet. I'm scared of my own shadow, and as much as I love to know what the book says, I'm not courageous enough to do it. What I'm scared of? It's just a book! I know! It's mostly my nightmares that scares me, they can get pretty bad. I guess I'm scared of my own thoughts and imagination! hahaha
So yeah, if you happen to be in the bookstore and buy this book and read it, please let me know what is says?
