Credo – I believe.
Not something you typically hear from a witch, and not generally thought of as a part of either the Witches Pyramid or the four Words of the Magus.
To Keep Silent
The Witch does not need to rely upon Belief, for she Knows.
Know, don’t wish, or think … Know
The ancient Greeks carved ‘gnothi seauton’, or know thyself, into the entrance to the temple in Delphi.
Belief is different from Knowing. Knowledge is certainty, not faith, and it is certainty which defines our ability to perform the Craft of our art.
