What does love Mean?

Themis makes a commitment to respect life and dignity, individuality and diversity, so that in all of our doings, every person is treated humanely, without exception. We must have patience and acceptance. We must be able to forgive, learning from the past but never allowing ourselves to be enslaved by memories of hate. Opening our hearts to one another, we the mebers of Themis must sink our narrow differences for the cause of our larger community, practicing a culture of solidarity and relatedness.

We of Themis consider humankind a family. We each strive to be kind and generous. We must not live for ourselves alone, but should also serve others, never forgetting the children, the aged, the poor, the suffering, the disabled, the refugees and the lonely. No person should ever be considered or treated as a second-class citizen, or be exploited in any way whatsoever. There should be equal partnership between men and women. Themis - Your AngelWe must not commit any kind of sexual immorality. We must discourage all forms of domination or abuse.

We of Themis commit ourselves to a culture of non-violence, respect, justice, and peace. We of Themis in our music, performances, lyrics or promotions shall not oppress, injure, torture, or kill other human beings, and will encourage forsaking violence as a means of settling differences.

We of Themis will strive for a just social and economic order, in which everyone has an equal chance to reach full potential as a human being. Themis band wil endeavour to speak and act truthfully and with compassion, dealing fairly with all, and avoiding prejudice and hatred. We and our music must move beyond the dominance of greed for power, prestige, money, andThemis - Dancing water spiders consumption to make a just and peaceful world.

We of Themis band believe Earth cannot be changed for the better unless the consciousness of individuals is changed first. Knowing that music and various music cultures have great influence, particularly over the young, we pledge to increase our awareness by disciplining our minds, through education and by positive thinking.

We of Themis commit ourselves to encouraging socially beneficial, peace-fostering, and nature-friendly ways of life.

Summer Solstice
Litha is the celebration Summer Solstice. The Solstice is the time when the sun is at the height of its power. It is the longest day of the year, midsummer. This is the time when the gardens are producing fruits and vegetables of summer. Wildlife is flourishing and the trees are covered in green leaves. On this day we celebrate the God at his highest point. He is strong and vibrant. Together with the Goddess who is in her Mother aspect, he rules the summer. However, it is also a time of transition. After Midsummer, the sun begins its yearly descent. The days will get shorter and shorter until the Winter Solstice when it begins its rise to power again.

There are two basic myths that accompany the Summer Solstice. The first is the mythology that follows the wheel of the year and the agricultural cycle of the lands. In this myth we see the Sun King who was born at Winter Solstice, now grown to power. He rules the summer, but in the fall will give himself to the land in an endless cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The Goddess, Queen of Summer, is in her Mother aspect, with child. The child, who is also the God, and will be reborn on Winter Solstice.
