Book description
Hans Holzer published a "Pagan Manifesto" in his book The New Pagans: Thou shalt always say, think and do what you truly desire, so long as it hurts no one else Thou shalt live in accordance with the laws of nature, not against them, and coordinate sleep, food, physical exertion, and work with the ways of nature Thou shalt not destroy nature or take from it without restoring that which has been taken, and thou shalt keep the balance of nature in tact at all times Thou shalt worship in any way that pleases thee and let others do likewise, even though ye may not understand their ways Thou shalt not take the life of another living thing, except for protection or for food Thou shalt not cage another living thing Thou shalt be free to love whomever thou pleasest, so long as thy primary obligations to family, home and community are not neglected Thou shalt express thyself through art, crafts, music, dancing, singing and poetry, for in so doing, thou shalt be in harmony with nature Thou shalt accept communication from the world beyond and the inner planes as natural, and thou shalt develop psychic abilities as a natural function of thy personality Thou shalt always strike a happy balance between mind and body, exercising both and developing thy inner self through the interplay of both thyselves, ever mindful that the spirit is above and beyond mind and body Thou shalt not forget the Spirit within and the Spirit without are the one and only true God/dess. Paganism has one primary law - the law of Threefold Return, which states: "Whatever you do, for good or for ill, returns to you threefold."
