Everything is Wicca.The universality of Wicca also means that Wicca can be used by all and anything can be used in Wicca.
As long as the Five Points of Wiccan Belief are there, and the other basic beliefs are met, any religion can be called Wiccan, there is Wiccan Druidry, Wiccan Judaism, even Wiccan Christianity. The laws of Wicca are relevant to ALL religion (even Satanism is reined in by Wiccan laws, and I can show you former Satanists with the Karmic debt to prove it.) This is because the laws of Wicca are not merely Wiccan but, Universal, like the laws of physics or Magick.Those laws that are metaphorical, such as the law of return or Karmic law, when proven byphysics such as For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, or laws of physics with extraordinary proofs, are said to be metaphysical.
Metaphysical laws, while often discounted, can be proven, with experimentation, as surely as can gravity.Universality also means that we are all, Dianic, Gardnerian, Eclectic or what- have-you, practicing the same thing, Wicca...All One Wicca. This does not mean that each tradition is unimportant, only that all traditions are equally as important, whether comprised of one, or one hundred coveners.Rather than divide our members into Solitary and Coven Practitioners, in Universal Eclectic Wicca, we have what are called Circles.
These circles represent two things: How much you know about Wicca and How much time and effort you put into your religion, the community, and your learning quest. (The learning you have already done probably places you within a circle, but small projects are asked of students wishing to switch into Universal Eclectic Wicca. These are usually papers, or debates, or in- depth conversations to determine how much you know.) The variances in your beliefs and the next Wiccans are vitally important so dont...do not, try to think like the next guy. Begin to let your philosophies wander, if you create something that isnt Wiccan, oh well, our loss.
Being Wiccan is not the goal here, being yourself is.All religion is created by humankind, regardless of its inspiration. Your religion is your religion, and mine is mine. We may use the same words, rituals, etc., but unless every way you think is the same as mine, our religions are individual.
All religion is limited to one practitioner, even if we call the practitioners of similar religions by the same name, Kat MacMorgans personal Wicca is not Tamryns Wicca, or Lady Dianas Wicca, or John Q. Pagans Wicca, it is the religious belief within her soul, much of which cannot be expressed in words.
This fierce individuality is reflected strongest by our deity concepts, our worship of Gaea, or Diana, or Apollo. Although we may even call a God or Goddess by the same name, how can I know exactly what (s)he looks like to you?The faces of the gods are shown differently to each person, and the same name, and even the same image is different from one person to another. This is what I like to call a What is blue? dilemma. We know that blue is the color of something, but how do we know that my brain doesnt see blue things as a color youd call red?
How do you explain blue to a blindperson...YOU dont, you just know it is blue. Perception is never identical, although the level of perception may be. My god may be female, or blond, or dark skinned, or called Jayne Dough, but its my inner god, and my inner religion, and it doesnt need to mean anything to you.A few may feel strongly that the Gods have only one name, and one face, and as a priestess, but mostly as a Metaphysicist I believe thats true.
