How Do You See The Horned God?

So many people have confused the horned God, or Pan, the peaceful nature God, with Satan. Although I do not work with Pan at this time, that's not to say that I won't. Many people don't realize that the Christians took him from the Pagan culture before them and made him into Satan as an enemy for their God and mankind. But in reality, Pan came down to Arcadia to help people, an aid to mankind, after Zeus banned him from Olympus for being annoying. But Pan never started a war with Zeus, or God as he would be known today, Zeus was actually annoyed by Pan's flute and made him leave heaven. This is where the Christians got their Satan concept and made it into their own story. Pan or the Horned God has never been evil or an enemy of mankind in history.

I see Pan as an awesome nature God. How do you see him? What and who is he to you? Have you had any magickal experiences, workings and/or successful relationships with Pan? Please feel free to tell your story. Of all the beautiful, magickal and enchanting spirits in nature, I am sure the Wiccan tales are endless.

Also, many people see the God and Goddess as part of our own spirits. It is not only a Christian concept that the spirit of God is in us all, it's also Pagan and Wiccan. Do you think that the divine dwells within us all? I believe that the spirits and magick of the God and Goddess shines in us. Be sure to include what you think.

Blessed Be.
