Amazing – the previous post is the most important decision i have made and then communicated via this blog in over 23 years. Not one member of the CoC has commented. Maybe two people have read it. Two of course have no computers. I have talked with Lady EWH, just got of the phone with Lady AIB after crying the whole time because i do not want to appears to be forgoing my responsibility as the Only third degree HPT of the Coven of the Catta and am responsible that Dame Sybil, Merlin and Lady Phoebe’s line continues. I am still taking on students and have recently taken on Frater J as an Apprentice. JJ is still my Apprentice, though i a his Apprentice to in many many ways. If someone wants to have a ritual, they can plan it and I will show up. Covenerors are stepping up the the plate, FINALLY, and having rituals together without me. Thanks the Gods. So, i feel like i can cut the apron strings so to speak and everyone will be OK and i can take a Sabbatical and get my head and shit together because if i am not together as a sane balanced human being then how can i be a good High Priest??? I hope you all understand, and those who read this blog who are not initiated HPTs or HPSs may or may not get it. I guess it is like having kids. At some point you have to let them take off the training wheels and ride on their own. And believe me, there are SO many incredibly talented and trained witches in this lineage i am a proud papa. Santee is my daddy. Phoebe is my mommy. Sybil is my gramma. probably Crowley is my grampa. They are all dead, but still working on the astral plane. My generation of witches is dying, like PP just died, like so many other elders have died int he past year. You youngsters, well you are not youngsters, but you know what i mean, Must step up to the plate and learn what you can from us whilst we are still alive, and pass it in in Perfect Love and Perfect Trust in Perfect BTW and Continental traditional Witchcraft of the cunning crooked path. But you must also Evolve it into what is relevant for Right Now and be creative and eclectic, as long as you honoure yr teachers and elders living and dead. May the Goddess Diana Astarte Hekate and the God Faunus Cernunnos Baphometus bless you all. BB. Lee / Shawnus.
