- Honoring the body as manifestation of The All.
Wiccans understand that human beings, as well as all other life forms, are creations of the divine force that expanded and expressed itself in physical form with the purpose to grow and understand itself from varying unique perspectives that could only be gained through physical manifestation. We are not only unified by these polarities, we ARE these polarities in separate unique creations. We ARE a part of the whole as well as BEING the whole itself. And it is precisely because of this understanding that we recognize that each of are, the complete sum of who we are as individual human beings, sacred. Our physical bodies are included in that sacredness regardless of how it appears; young or old, fat or thin, able bodied or paralyzed, diseased, healthy, bald, hairy, tall, short, female, male, transgendered, genderless … any combination of the already mentioned or countless combinations unnoted. All manifestations of the human form are manifestations of The All. And because of this are sacred.
