This is the meanings of the Witches Creed. To know- means we must free our minds and clear them of useless clutter, garbage, and worn-out notions. Only then can we open them to accept the gifts of the Ancients that await us. To Dare - We must dare to overcome our personal ignorance and outdated beliefs. Only then wil we gain the personal strength necessary to walk the path of the Craft. To Will - means without personal for our efforts to reach success, we must want our goals so badly that we become one with them. To Keep Silent - This is a two fold matter. First, we must acquire the trait of inner peace and quiet, and cultivate it well within ourselves. Only then can we hear the messages of the Gods or hear the truth within. The second matter is a mundane one. Unfortunately, bigoted, frightened people still live in our world and we must understand that those who do not wish to be educated will not be. For that reason, silence is often necessary to protect ourselves and the ways of the Craft. There are also thirteen principles of Wiccan beliefs.
