I don’t have much substance for a blog post. I just entered through the gates of the Ovate in OBOD and the first Gwers (lessons) have been taking up much of my time as I prepare for a new, but continued journey down the Druid path. As you may know, the Ovates were and are the healers, diviners, and workers of magic in the Druid ranks. I’m sure this part of the journey is going to take much energy and inspire many interesting blog posts. I have looked forward to this chapter in my life for quite some time. I had to be ready to take this step, and I know that I am.
I have also been debating my next blog post in my head for quite some time. I had thought of writing a post about Reconstructionists vs. Revivalists. There seems to be some unwarranted arguements about who has the right vision and path when it comes to these two takes on paganism. Honestly, I think both paths are right in their own way, and it’s the person who follows said path that determines what is right for them. I don’t understand why all the debate around this topic.
Personally I am a Revivalist. I believe spirituality and religion should grow and take on different shapes much like the Natural world. We all grow and change in one way another during our lives, and I believe my spirituality shouldn’t be any different. Of course, I do use historical texts and whatnot, but I don’t feel compelled to practice as the Ancients did, because our World is a very different place than it was ages ago. You may disagree with my stance, but that’s ok, like I said the path one chooses to follow is the right one for them. Who am I to argue?
In wrapping this up, I am sure I will have a post this weekened as I dive into my Ovate work. For the rest of this week I will be focusing on my learning.
