Many people ask about various phrases used here. When we say "Wise Ones," we mean any source of wisdom in our lives, from parents and teachers to Gods and Goddesses. It is up to each individual member to determine who these Wise Ones are for themselves. "Serve" here is not used in the sense of servile, but in the sense of making sure that our acts are in the best interest of, and in line with the wisdom provided by, the Wise Ones. Service in and of itself is not a bad thing; service to the community is an integral part of the SpiralScouts program.
