Wiccan Rede as explained by Christopher Penczak

Witchcraft is based on the concepts of balance, harmony and cyclical change. There is no moral code of "thou shall" and "thou shall not". There is only one simple code of behavior call the Wiccan Rede. The Rede comes in many forms and names throughout magical traditions. Some take it to mean that you can do anything you like, with no consequences, because it's now "part of your religion". This is not what the Wiccan Rede says. You can do whatever you want, but you must accept the consequences of your actions. The best guide you can use is to harm none. If you harm none, no harm will be returned to you.

I promised updates from the book, "The Inner Temple of Witchcraft". This one was next on the list. This is witchcraft's version of the 10 Commandments. It kinda follows karma. Most witches believe in the 3fold law--what you do comes back to you 3 times over. And this goes for the good and the bad. Send out negative energies, you'll get them back, but 3 times. Send out good energies, and you'll get them back 3 times too.
