Weary World Looks for Answers

Our weary world is rife with need, chaos reigns as people unleash the demons held back through centuries of oppression and pain. The pain is exploding from every pore, every bodily crevice and synapse worn from unseen strikes from unseen sources. Where do we go from here? Who do we look to for relief? We can not despair, life is suffering and joy, pleasure and pain.

I look to the moon at night and think of Nut (Noot) the Egyptian Goddess swallowing the sun at night only to give birth to it the following day. I think of Brigid keening in agony at the death of her son, her heartbreak so raw that she united warring tribes. Is that what we need? to follow the ebb and flow and then in some time retch and writhe in our suffering, birthing our centuries old pain carried lifetime to lifetime ancestor to ancestor?

There is no God to “bless” some and not others, there are lessons to learn from those who have heroically come before, including ourselves. The evolution of the collective soul being birthed in the messy continuum of time and space we now occupy.

The trees provide answers standing as models of energy flowing, shelter for some entities, pouring out energy as a natural cyclical occurrence. I sit with the trees basking in their glow, absorbing their essence and sharing mine. I feel calmer, until the next contraction.

Why Druidry and Why now?

Druids were wiped out by the 2nd Century by Romans acting on behalf of the Church. All you need to do a google search to find the last of the Druid Priests on Anglsey Island were all murdered. What we have of their teachings mostly comes from Celtic myth stories and recorded history – but remember – history is recorded by the victors so likely isn’t so much the truth as what they wanted remembered.

So why Druidry? Because it is still in our DNA and we can remember.

We know they revered nature and considered all living things to have the spirit of life in them. We know they believed trees, ancient, strong and beautiful, were the keepers of wisdom with the oak tree being their most sacred.

We know they were astronomers and astrologers and mapped the skys.

We know they lived in step with nature, not against it and that is where we need to be. Following the cycles of the moon and acting in concert with her, marking the seasonal landmarks with celebrations, the solstices, equinoxes and add to those key Celtic festivals that marked seasonal changes in the year, Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnassadh, Samhain and Yule. They keep us in touch with nature and flowing with her not against her. This is where we learn to work magic as well, magic for good purposes, for the betterment of you personally and for all.

Lastly, truth, to me the MOST important. Druids never lied. Integrity and honor were ingrained and the most important tenet of their teachings. Truth and integrity in all things with no exceptions.

The world is so in need of this shift now. The times of the religions of the sands are over.
