However, the idea of ritual sacrifice (apparent historical tradition) and disregard for non-human life through hunting and carnivorous behavior (Lynda’s invocation of Dagda) etc., are examples of how we elevate ourselves to the top of a man-made hierarchy resulting in misery and suffering for all Beings.
ALL life is sacred and until druidism embraces this idea, it will be no different from any other religion.
I will move forward with my Ogham studies with an understanding druidism must evolve into greater consciousness to become a positive force in the world otherwise there will be no growth, simply a rehashing of history.
These posts are the first of a series of Blog postings on the issues we all do well to consider on following the Druid Path as part of our journey to Enlightenment. We would appreciate and welcome a kind and caring, intelligent and mutually respectful exploration of these issues, as we develop The Druid Forest School: www.druidforestschool.com .
These very worthwhile points are all made from Anne Lee in Washington State, USA.
