Divinity – The God

A few posts ago I did a little about the Goddess and now it is the Gods turn. Like the Goddess, The God is made of and by the One. Also Like the Goddess The God has multiple aspects to him.  Unlike the Goddess it is the idea of a pagan God that has been most distorted by those who wished he didn’t exist. Also unlike the Goddess, the God is some times left out of Wicca altogether. So lets discuss the God.

The God is the primal male energy in existance. In everything. He is in everything and he is everything and everything is him. He is the Father of All Life as well has the pulsing energies you can feel in nonliving items like rocks. He is the Sun giving us light and life on our planet. He is the Horned God who is king of the bests. The wild stag and falcon. He is the Greenman protector of the forests. He is all this things and so much more because as I stated he is in everything, he is everything and everything is him.

He is celebrated by Witches generally in his life cycle that mirrors the sacred wheel of the year.  He is both the Oak King and the Holy King. God of Light and God of Dark. This does not mean light in dark in terms of good and bad it means it in the literal sense that the God of the Dark or Holly King is the God of the Dark half of the year. From Mabon to Ostra when night is longer then day.

He is of course scary. Not to me mind you but the idea of a God living in balance with nature and not dominating or destroying it,  is to much for some people to handle. He is often pictured as part beast much like Egyptian Gods and Goddess to show his oneness with Nature.  It is this aspect of the God as king of the beasts has been perverted to now represent evil. It is sad how much the idea of Nature and the natural world can scary someone. He is energy and love and life and delight.

It is sad really how the God has been treated. He has been severed. The part of him that lives on in many religions (no not all and not all interpretations of said religions) Is more of a Stern father. The abundance of love and spark of life are often carved away to leave an imposing figure that you better not get angry with you. Whats more is that some Witches leave him out all together. The worship only a Goddess and leave him out entirely.

In everything there is both Male and Female energies. In everything there is the God and the Goddess. They are two and they are one. For me it is embracing of the wholeness of life that makes the most sense.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
