A Statement Of Unity
News Release 12.10.2014

Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections  release a statement on the recent violence  that has highlighted racial inequality and violence against humanity.

Everyone here at Spring’s Haven and Springwolf Reflections share concern with many in the world and within our Pagan communities regarding inequalities between people not only in the American justice system, but within our societies and cultures as well. And on the recent release of a U.S. Congressional report on torture.

As Pagans, we view all life as sacred and as such, all lives matter. That belief extends not only to human life, but ALL life. We see our Divine world in the context that I am not the Goddess, you are not the God. But you and I, and all things seen and unseen throughout the Divine Cosmos make up the Divine Consciousness of the All and Everything. Continue reading

Sympathies and Prayers for Oak Creek, Wisconsin

The Alpha's

The Gift of Compassion

Everyone at Spring’s Haven wish to express our deepest sympathies, prayers and thoughts for the family, friends and community of the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

This world is large enough to accommodate all beliefs and to share our knowledge, wisdom and understanding in peace. We can allow others to believe as they choose without threatening our own spiritual path or compromising our own enlightenment.

Hate and intolerance have no place in our society or our country! This senseless violence harms everyone not only here in the U.S., but all souls around the world. By remaining silent when crimes of hate occur, one condones the act. By standing up and denouncing the hate out of tolerance and expressing compassion for the victimized we elevate the standards of morality and eliminate the screams of arrogance and overbearing dictatorship either formal or informal.

As my friend Rev. John E. Lewis Jr. said today:
Undermining the religious, political, moral or philosophical views of others in favor of elevating the religious, political, moral or philosophical views of self is arrogant, pathologically absurd and ultimately self-defeating. These dangerous tactics are on the increase by certain individuals and groups who actually believe they will convince others of their conceived supreme position. It may appear to be effective in the short-run, but in the long-run it will fail miserably, and in the process demean the common decency and civility of collective society. Never can any individual or group ultimately succeed by discrediting others in favor of self.

Our our hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected.
