Beliefs of the Unicorn Tradition

Beliefs of the Unicorn Tradition

  1. We believe in one source of divinity, termed the All, which is formless and infinite. We see the first manifestation of the All embodied in the Divine persons of the Goddess and the God.
  1. We believe that the All manifests into the physical Universe through many different interconnected planes of existence.
  1. Through understanding the interconnected planes of existence, we have a realization that any goddess is a part, or a face of, the one Goddess, and all gods are part, or aspects of, one God; and that ultimately the God and Goddess are part of and reflections of the All, the source of divinity.
  1. We believe that the All is immanent within Nature, that each of us contains the essence of the Divine, and that all of creation has inherent worth as a consequence of immanence. We believe there is no separation between the Infinite and Nature, yet the infinite All is greater that the sum of its parts.
  1. As an Initiatory religion, we seek to understand the ways of Nature and the Universe. We believe that there is no ultimate conflict between religion and science.
  1. We believe in the pursuit of individual experience of Divinity, and we practice a system of worship intended to cultivate that connection. We believe that through worship of Gods and Goddesses we can develop a closer connection to the All.
  1. Our beliefs give us a unique responsibility toward our environment, and we seek to live in ecological balance and harmony with Nature.
  1. Since the Infinite is immanent, we see all life experience as sacred. We use celebratory rituals to commemorate the life cycles evident within Nature.
  1. We practice Magick, which is the Art and Science of causing change to occur in conformity with Will. We strive to work Magick of a positive nature with the intent to benefit the well being of all involved and we accept responsibility for the consequences of our actions.
  1. We believe that consciousness evolves through many lifetimes and gives meaning to the universe and our personal role within it.
  1. We recognize the patterns of the ancient alchemical elements, symbology, andĀ correspondences of Earth, Fire, Water and Air, and the fifth element of Spirit as emblems of the powers in Nature. The elements are symbols of body, intention, emotion, intellect, and immanence.
  1. We believe that through Initiation, we make a commitment to self-transformation, conscious evolution, and the journey toward enlightenment. We strive to deepen awareness and experience of the union of Nature, the God and Goddess, and the All.
  1. We believe all religions have a valid place and do not seek to deny or suppress religious practices and beliefs that are different from our own.
