Brida , Brida! Today I woke up thinking about one of my favorite "Witches book" by Pablo Coelho . I love that book, she is a new practitioner. Brida wants to learn the craft, and she ask around who can teach her the path. She doesn't know much about it, but she is on her way to find it, she is persistent and as we know , she gets to the person she needs to teach her!! She is following the path of the Moon, her teacher said he is from the sun.... ho I just can read that book any day any time.
Have you ever read a book that stays with you forever , the rituals , the pictures, the messages. Is a sweet story, we all like sweet story's. Today is Beltane, so I got these book on my mind, Paulo or Pablo as I call him! such amazing writer ,he has a blog too! lucky me now I can go and check on him anytime . I would like to post his blog , the things he wrote about the life of Brida . If you haven't read it yet. Please get it! A witch a Magus .... is magic on every page.. so here is waht he said on his blog:
Choosing a path meant having to miss out on others. She had a whole life to live, and she was always thinking that, in the future, she might regret the choices she made now.
“I’m afraid of committing myself,” she thought to herself.
She wanted to follow all possible paths and so ended up following none. After her first romantic disappointment, she had never again given herself entirely. She feared pain, loss, and separation.
These things were inevitable on the path to love, and the only way of avoiding them was by deciding not to take that path at all.
In order not to suffer, you had to renounce love. It was like putting out your own eyes not to see the bad things in life.
Ever since time began, people have recognized their true Love by the light in their eyes.
“When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.”
“Don’t bother trying to explain your emotions. Live everything as intensely as you can and keep whatever you felt as a gift from God. The best way to destroy the bridge between the visible and invisible is by trying to explain your emotions.”
“But how will I know who my Soulmate is?” Brida felt that this was one of the most important questions she had ever asked in her life.
“By taking risks” she said to Brida. ‘ By risking failure, disappointment, disillusion, but never ceasing in your search for Love. As long as you keep looking, you will triumph in the end.”
Nothing is completely wrong. Even a broken watch is right twice a day.
BRIDA is the real story of a young girl learning to follow the Tradition of the Moon
