“This is what I believe: That I am I,
That my soul is a dark forest,
That my known self will never be more than a clearing in the forest,
That gods, strange gods, come forth from the forest into the clearing of my known self, and then go back,
That I must have the courage to let them come and go,
That I will never let mankind put anything over me, but that I will always try to honor the gods in me and the gods in other men and women,
There is my creed.
A creed is a set of beliefs that guide your actions. Many adopt the creeds of a formal religious group or an organization to which they belong. But freethinkers must generate creeds of their own since they are originators in the world.
What set of beliefs guides you as artist and writer? Take time to think on this and share your creed with me or on your own blog.
