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.

I’ve been here before...
« on: May 10, 2018, 09:19:35 am »
Looking at the old message board, I discovered I made 50 posts here in 2010 under the username AnneNevill. Thank you for keeping it archived. It is interesting to read and see how my thoughts have developed in the last 8 years.

That 2010 foray into paganism was predated by another period of exploration in 2003. This has been a long journey for me. This time, I am keeping a journal and book of notes, prayers, and appealing rituals.

In the intervening years, I have established a daily meditation practice* and become physically stronger, better rounded person. I am having much more success accessing my spirituality and the divine.

* A post on the old forum introduced me to Meditation Oasis, my first successful meditation experience! That was life changing!

Fascinating... I can't imagine being active on the internet extensively enough, or long enough, to forget that I used a website. I only use a handful of web sites, and I've used most of them for over a decade, so the idea of forgetting one is rather novel and foreign to me, especially if I made multiple posts on that site.
"The worshippers of the gods go to them; to the manes go the ancestor-worshippers; to the Deities who preside over the elements go their worshippers; My devotees come to Me." ... "Whichever devotee desires to adore whatever such Deity with faith, in all such votaries I make that particular faith unshakable. Endowed with that faith, a votary performs the worship of that particular deity and obtains the fruits thereof, these being granted by Me alone." - Sri Krishna

I’m surprised, too. It’s been a difficult eight years, though.

Mind, I didn’t forget I’d posted on pagan forums in general. I just didn’t recognize that this was the one!
