Posts Tagged ‘Spiritual’

I had a very stressful day at work yesterday.  You know, the kind of day where people should be understanding of uncontrollable circumstances, but because it effects them, rationality is thrown out the window.  Due to such circumstances,  a day where I do everything in my power to support those individuals, but in the end I just can’t make it happen.  Due to such circumstances, a day where the affected individuals choose to take a jab at me via email to my boss while CCing me on that email; rather unfairly.  For the record, my boss was completely understanding because he was firmly ungulfed in the situation from the start.  I am not going to get into any details, but it did get me thinking of my Druid spirituality.  I would take this as the positive of what proved otherwise to be a bad day.

I got to thinking how us Druids don’t see the world through binary glasses.  There is always that third factor; the ternary.  When you take a look at the third factor the answer may lie.  It’s that balance that allows for freedom and flexibility.  Yesterday was a day in which I found it hard to recognize any tertiary factor to help resolve the situation.  Perhaps, there was not a ternary factor hidden from plain view, or perhaps there was and I failed to see it.

The point being is that I tried to look for a third factor.  I know for certain that if I were not a practicing Druid this thought process would never have entered my mind.  Sometimes that third factor isn’t obvious, sometimes it’s as plain as day.  The important lesson I learned from yesterday is to always look for the ternary and not settle on the binary.  If I can’t reveal the ternary factor then so be it; at least I tried to view the situation in this light.  At the very least, I can rest peacefully knowing that I tried everything, but sometimes in the end things don’t work out perfectly.  Or did it because I learned a valuable lesson??  See….

Been awhile…

Hi everyone.  I know it’s been almost a year since my last post.  There is a good explanation for this I promise.  As you all know I am a member of OBOD (Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids) going through my journey with them.  Their Druid training is intense and sometimes takes a bit of time to be able to fully work with all that is being taught to you.

I needed some extra time away from the online world to build my inner world.  This was an important and necessary step in my spiritual development.  You see, you can’t give yourself freely to the Gods, Nature, etc… without having your inner self figured out.

I took a lot of time working with the legend of Taliesin.  I needed this legend to ring loud and clear inside of me before I was able to press on from that.  That meant the number of distractions in my outer world had to be minimized for the time being.

The legend of Taliesin is a very important story in the workings of a Druid.  It tells a story of life, death, and rebirth.  Of seeing the beauty in ugliness.  To give myself entirely to the path of Druidry I needed to take some time to heal my inner wounds and be reborn again.  So the legend of Taliesin also goes.  And for that matter, most world religions do have a similar story.

So, my humble apologies to you all for taking some time away.  But if you practice Druidry or another Pagan path, then you fully understand why I needed to take almost a year away. The blog posts will start popping up again and I will keep you all updated via Twitter and the such! Thank you for your patience and many blessings under the Oaks /|\
