Turn now to the third page in your notebook and write down how you came to this point in your life. What needs are you feeling right now? What do you feel you will gain by studying the Craft? What do you fear you may lose if you continue on this path? Be perfectly honest with yourself. If you are not, don't waste the ink in your pen or the lead in your pencil. You are not ready to enter the study of Witchcraft. Looking at both the bright side and the dark or shadow areas are extremely important in your progress.
To succeed in any endeavor, we must understand what qualities make us weak, and those that show our strength. Take your time and meet yourself eyeball to eyeball. You won't regret it! Coven initiates are given a year and a day to determine entrance into the Craft. First, you may not like what an individual is teaching, how it is being taught, or have a distaste for someone else who is a member of the group. Human interaction can be both wonderful and painful. To subject yourself to pain for the sake of elusive forbidden knowledge that may or may not exist is not the way of the Craft.
