The rule of three? (Sort of a survey/poll question)

I know this is found in the Wiccan Rede, but how many non-Wiccans also follow this belief?

  • I adhere to it in most of my magick, because the karmic repercussions are quite real. There ARE situations wherein you have to weigh whether the need is greater than the possible karmic debt. I think you must make an effort to do something good in every spell you perform, but you must not be afraid to do something dark if it becomes necessary.

  • Rule of three is basicaly Karma....though a little more in-depth, and I'm a firm believer in getting what you put out.

  • Eclectic Pagan, I sure don't follow it, nor the Wiccan Rede.

  • Pretty much just not in that wording. "You reap what you sow" "Karma" and so on. It is all the idea of the law of attraction.

  • Every religion or belief system believes this to some degree, it just isn't called the same thing. Even though I am not particularly religious, I still believe that what you put out comes back to you.

  • I still follow the "Law of Three", but I don't see it quite the same way as some people do, and didn't even when I was strictly Wiccan. I don't think things come back to you three TIMES. Instead, I believe the things you do effect you on three LEVELS. Whatever you do "comes back to you" (has an effect on you) "three times" (on the mental, physical, and spiritual levels).

  • I see the Law Of Attraction, The Wiccan Rule of Three and Karma as all one in the same... When we send out energy, it comes back to us. And in general all actions have 3 steps - 1. Inception/Planning 2. Carry Through 3. Reaction - So yes, I do believe the energy returns 3 fold, because it goes out three times.

  • It's called "reep what you sow" in the bible.   Galatians 6:7-8

  • I am an eclectic pagan witch and I believe in karma in a sense.
