Paganism is an umbrella term that describes a variety of denominations

known to Pagans as traditions – which for most part organize themselves and operate without a centralized religious body or a standardized dogma. Whilst variety of belief and practice is a source of pride for all Pagans, it can be a source of confusion for others

The belief that every part of the universe is profoundly interconnected shapes how Pagans view the nature of the divine,

the sorts of relationships possible with the Divine and universe and forms the pagans approach to prayer and magick. Most Pagans believe that all parts of the universe, be it animate or inanimate , are connected at very deep levels that extend beyond the boundaries of space time as we know them. Because of this interconnection, many Pagans believe they are able to interconnect with the universe and the divine as co creators.

The belief that every part of the universe is blessed in nature

, and that there is nothing wrong with the universe or with you, means that the purpose of Pagan spiritual practice differs from that of religions focused on issues of purification and salvation. Paganism takes the position that human beings are unflawed in their natures, are not spiritually doomed or damned , are born with the skills necessary to live ethically and spiritually, and are naturally orientated towards their own greatest growth and development. No part of Pagan belief , practice , ritual or sacrament is designed to save Pagans from a flawed or corrupt nature, or to avert supernatural punishments arising from such supposed flaws.
