In the practice of the Craft, it is important to pause between the actions taken in the arte. Rushing onward does not allow the resonance of the moment to seal itself into our presence. The rhythm and cycle of a routined practice shifts our consciousness into alignment with that which is holy but periods of allowing this to occur needs to happen. Sit in the moment and allow our mind and heart to sit basking and be shaped. The spiritual union in the moment must be given precedence and space in the life of the Witch in order for it to do the work. This does not mean that further actions are not taken but that before moving onward worth is given to each part. Kind of like writing a sentence, there are spaces between each word for a reason.
