    Greetings

    Hello, I am a new & slow convert to Gallo-Roman Paganism. Being a solitary practitioner, I am picking up the ways a bit at a time. For many years I have flirted with the idea of Paganism, usually in the form of the Norse Religion. Over the past few years in my genealogy research I have discovered my family was from France, my DNA being of a small, or rare type identified with Celts or Gauls. Since my ancestors mean so much to me I have felt a pull away from the Norse to the Gallo-Roman. The more I read about it, the more interested I am. I am starting myself on a journey of enlightenment & enrichment that I feel excited about. I've searched for Pagan boards & this one seemed to have the most information. We are a small group. I hope I can learn from you....Many Thanks...Borgia

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    Re: Greetings

    Being male I guess I'm a Cesare. Actually Borgia is just a name I've used over the years on the net. It has nothing to do with the infamous Borgia family. It comes from an American mobster with that surname that I read about years ago, just thought it was an interesting name...

    Ljubezen, yes, I've been dna tested more than once. Its been a great genealogical tool in my research, as my family is a relatively small one that has been in America since at least the early 1700'. The country of origin had long been forgotten, or covered up, and the name most likely shortened. its a long story....
