UPG: an ugly, misguided notion – paganSquare guest post-

UPG, or ‘unsubstantiated personal gnosis’, is a term usually used to denigrate personal experience of the sacred as somehow inferior to dogma. Au contraire, I agree with PaganSquare that personal gnosis is the ONLY true way of experiencing anything whatsoever, much less things spiritual. It is dogma which must be regarded with distrust as needing verification with one’s experience, not vice versa.

And as a source of personal experience, Nature is Good. Nature is VERY good.

Helgaleena even goes so far as to recommend living trees as teachers over any text– and I’m not sure about most of my fellow humans either.
