It was asked what pagan people have when it comes to what is real and valid in our places of faith. We don't have institutionalized religion that is also of big business, no. We don't have two rather 'unholy' days where the God is celebrated mostly devoid of the Goddess. But we do have a space of ancient spiritual history that pre dates Christianity;one is found with the native people of North America who knew Source through the natural world, Shamans and others of spirit knew animals as a source of faith. One was the salmon which was like us and also of what we should do.As the river takes us and we meet the ocean greater than us there it compels you to return to the river where you must swim upstream and even as you meet the battering rocks of life you must continue for your children. Male and female jump in equality in the river of life for their children, selfless and of creation as Source compels. Salmon is real upon the earth, the human spirit as well. For our continuance in the spirit of the sacred salmon. The lesson of the Source is upon the Earth.
