2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Mr Miyagi on Druidry
« on: July 26, 2014, 09:59:53 am »
I have a budding interest in druidry.  I need peace in my life, and I have always felt more at peace in nature.  Still, in all these questions my mind asks, I feel lost. So, I may be overthinking yet again, but last night while watching The Karate Kid, my mind started to replace the word Karate with the word Druid.  Here's the scene it did that on:

]Mr. Miyagi: Now, ready?
Daniel: Yeah, I guess so.
Mr. Miyagi: [sighs] Daniel-san, must talk. [they both kneel] Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later, [makes squish gesture] get squish just like grape. Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do "yes", or karate do "no". You karate do "guess so", [makes squish gesture] just like grape. Understand?


Any thoughts?

That could be true with any path. Don't half-ass anything and you're good.

In the words of another great philosopher, Yoda, "No! Try not. Do or do not do.  There is no try."

In all seriousness these are words to live by.  There's nothing wrong with doing something and it not working out, but if you half-ass things nothing will ever work out.  At least that's what I've found in my own life.

I really like this, and like the other posters have said it's always the best way to do things with commitment. Sadly I've not followed this advice in the past and regretted it!
