Morality

Defining morality or immorality is always a battle of different ideas, and saga of conflictions. The battle is still on, because the society is still to understand that morality is a relative idea. If you can justify your action, and do not think it is immoral. How can someone else decide if it is moral or immoral? Does any person have the right to criticise your path, while he or she has not been on your way ever? Despite these words, there is something called the society and you cannot possibly ignore it, as you have to live with it in anyways. Though the same idea of morality is not applicable in different societies, still the idea has always been there.

 

Wiccans do not have any ethical code as such, but they are also bound by some ideas. These ideas are not that much for binding them, but to make them aware of the responsibilities they have or they must follow. If someone has power, he or she must understand the responsibility that is associated with the power. As the good old fellows used to say, “Greater power comes with greater responsibility”. That is why the wiccans believe that despite the freedom to act, they must take the responsibility for things that they are doing. If the action is good the result will be good; otherwise results can get adverse.

 

There is another idea, which the wiccans had. That is whatever action one performs, be it good or evil, he or she will face the return of the same force with triple power. If you have done something good, then your body, mind and spirit will be blessed with divine happiness. If you have done something evil then you will be thrashed by the rage of God. This belief is very much like the idea of karma that can be found in the religion and ideology of the east and south East Asia.

 

Throughout the years and centuries the ideas of morality has changed a lot. Initially what was thought to be immoral is not regarded as such any more. The whole understanding of morality and immorality stands upon the ideologies, and newer trends in the society. With time, perspective of the society changed drastically. Modern people have ignored and denied loads of old ideas. Wiccans are not the only part of the society which has evolved, rest of the society has also changed over the time. So, a lot of new trend in Wicca spells can be found, in these days.
