The 2 basic tenets of Paganism are that everything in the universe (animate & inanimate) is sacred, and that everything in the universe is in some way interconnected. One of my favorite quotes on the subject of interconnectedness is this:

"What befalls the Earth befalls the people on the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. What he does to the web, he does to himself." Chief Seattle (1854)

It is said that no one converts to Paganism, that one day you realize it's how you have always felt, and you thereafter decide to identify yourself as Pagan.
