As a druid I live in Celtic dreamtime, the ever present of the otherworld, and the druid world came from the Celtic otherworld. This is why it is so important for me to honor the earth goddess who is the very spirit of the land, and the god, her consort. Druids find inexhaustible power from the otherworld. And thinking about it, the quarter festivals are probably the most important, because the veil between worlds is thinner then. The land is thought of as a living presence. WE can’t let the Walmart religions to cause our druid heritage to go bankrupt as the Walmart religion sells us tons of shit. As druids we come from community life, not central control of governments. I feel we tend to hate people who try to tell us what to do and how to live our lives. We are a family-oriented group, as it has always been, and will always be. Druid dreamtime is forever. It is not on world time, we measure time by the seasons. Druids are close to the spirit of nature, and dreamtime is a magical place of the gal, the valor, the brave. We are not the cast off, we are the ones who keep the peace with the earth, friends with the goddess who is throughout the universe. a perpetual motion of the stars and our crystal palaces. Love comes from the spirit, love moves us to write and dance and play our dreamtime songs. anyone up for a cattle raid?September 17, 2020 at 9:15 am #12163david pooleParticipant

druidry is the sacred path that transforms us into a closer relation with nature, and so it heals us, it is about self transformation and higher levels of consciousness, although there are a lot of people who are heritage druids, meaning they are into druidry for the history and heritage of the druidry, which if you go back far enough was probably not as bad as the romans made the druids out to be, I mean remember the druids and romans had been at it from about 200 bc, and really had been hacking each other up, so they probably hated each other, as I understand it the christian church got Celtic people into christian because of the monetary system, which is nothing like the church that came along later, and was run by the central Government of the pope. in fact the church was all for the Celtic bards in 500ad, so in a way we have the christians to thank for what literature we do have of the druids, or at least the bards. the big split revolves around the druids who were community oriented and the the romans who were state controlled oriented. Druids are more community and family people, and don’t like the government sticking their noses into everything. so, religion is about self transformation for druids, where religion is just following orders for muggles. druids are deep thinkers and nature lovers, muggle just don’t care, and are all about making more money for themselves, we would probably have enough for everyone if we shared more, but that ain’t ever going happen, and government has a lot to do with who is in what position at the time.September 18, 2020 at 8:36 pm #12171
the spell check changed monestary into monetary, I meant monestary like monks, Celtic people are very community centered, or maybe not, either way they hate centralized government.September 19, 2020 at 12:49 am #12172Dave TheDruid-3X3Participant
Unfortunately, the Walmart Religion is too widespread and entrenched into the Human Psyche too be Dethroned.
That is why the Green Party does not get much Votes in the Elections. The Members of the Walmart Religion do not want to Vote to support a Government that Governs for the Benefit of all of the World’s Lifeforms and Nature as well as Humanity.
Walmartians do not want to Share the World with Nature.

Dave, what I meant by the Walmart religions, was these mega christian super churches that are popping up everywhere in the USA. I just wonder if they are not some kind of mass distraction. and today in The Washington Post, I was reading about Jerry Falwell son who had to stand down from being the head of Liberty University because he and his wife got involved in a sex scandal with a pool boy. And Jerry’s son also supported trump because trump helped him cover up the sexual scandal. It just goes to show how lost some christians can become when political power gets mixed up with religion. I have really been trying to figure out what druidry is, and there are so many different views of druidry that it becomes meaningless. I have been reading this book by Kristopher hughes, Nautral Druidry, and he is in the same situation that I am. Hughes is an interesting druid and I think he teaches druidry and is an undertaker. I do think that kindness and empathy for others could be good traits to have. and it does seem that druidry is more of a path than a religion, but if the Celtic Gods and goddesses are brought into the mix, then druidry can become a religion. I like it more as a path, because that way we don’t end up with people like Jerry Falwell Jr. turning it into politics. I also like the Celtic heritage part of druidry because I like the Celtic music, and art, and poetry. I feel that more people will go green as global warming starts changing the environment, but for now the wealthy will try to protect their money, and continue to frack. the one thing about Celtic people is that we are more community based than central government based. And the central government does have the power to indoctrinate people into their belief system of basketball and football as a godhead and a distraction from living in harmony with the earth. druidry is a way for people to reconnect with the wild woods and their community. druidry is the grass roots of religion, something beautiful and older than christianity.druidry is something that is felt and changes us at a deep level of consciousness.September 20, 2020 at 2:30 am #12183Dave TheDruid-3X3Participant
I understood your Analogy of calling the Walmart as some sort of Commercialism Mega Christian Super Church.

Dave, two people, druids, you would be interested in. 1st, Kris Hughes, and second Alexei Kondratiev,
Hughes seems to be right on track about what druidry is. he is a druid priest on Anglesey. Thees guys have been at it for a while and have a pretty good explanation about druidry. in a lot of ways we are the guides to the natural world, the inspirational. and when talking about druidry, it is difficult, because I don’t really want to use the word spiritual all the time. And most stuff is natural magic, which may be the same thing as awen, and awen seems to be a lot more than just inspiration. lots to study with Hughes.
