Some 17,000 years ago, the human beings were dealing with their lives, trying to feed their families, working as hunter gatherers, trying to survive in a time when there was very little knowledge. The people had to hunt and choose which things to eat, finding fish, learning to hunt, knowing of fire, but many could not use it. In a time of dark ages, when man first started it's inhabitation of the planet, THIS was the dark ages.

The story told was that a single man came into the fields one day, and taught the human beings fire. And how to plant their crops so that they would always have food. And to tend to their animals so they would be taken care of, and the people would always have meat. He taught them how to live off the abundance of the Earth, the herbs to heal, the food to eat, and how to give thanks for all of everything that they had. To be greatful, help each other out, keep peace and harmony, and he called this, "The Way". Teaching "The Way" consumed most of his life, and the human beings, seeing what he had taught, considered him a God.

This man wanted to make sure greed was kept to a minimum, so gold was brought to him and used for paving material. The streets of this little part of Earth was paved with gold. Gold was used in building of palaces that honored his wife, and used for nothing else. The people were taught to leave their egos behind, and to work towards giving of themselves to each other.

The teachings were then, as they should have been. He told the human beings that they were one with the Divine. And since they perceived themselves to be one with him, they thought that they should stay close to him so that he could help them out. But the teachings of the man were that they were, as himself, one with the Divine spirit. Once you would think this, you would know that as many atoms and particles of energy are whizzing around in the atmosphere, that they are one, with everything. They are their own little part of the energy source, but they are one with it.

This teaching would mean that if one with the Divine, that the whole Divine concept of love would mean that since you are at one, you are at one with love. This means that you are never alone, and always loved.  You would only have to be one with the concept that you are never alone. Yet, alas, the human beings decided that they would call upon the great god, the man that came to them, to call upon his god to make everything better. The one man was not a god, but a teacher of the way. And the god the people wanted him to call, was the same god that they themselves could call upon, but they had decided to separate themselves from Divine, and blindly walk in consciousness. Being aware of themselves, they began to need more and more. They needed more food, more clothing, more structure for their living space. They just needed more, and their egos inflated with all of the new need. The more they needed, the more power some had to have.

The Divine Spirit was always there within us. But people and their ego shut it out. Without learning how to focus on it, feel it, make oneself at one with it, they separated and spent many billions of trees trying to tell everyone how to get back. Religions were built, telling of how you had to die to get back to god, and how in some cases his son would do his work, or a prophet, or a leader on earth. But, the Divine Spirit was there all along, and those in the religions of separation kept the human beings from being one.

The man's name that came to that place in time was named Poseidon, and was to have 10 Children. The place of the Human Beings was Atlantis. Atlantis whole, not broken into 10 islands, but Atlantis the place that eventually fell into the ocean and sunk. He was known as a god after this time. The people have a way of thinking their way into the way they want to believe, and because most don't want the responsibility for their own lives and the way they live, the job is always turned over to someone or something that they can blame. Gods and Goddesses have been blamed for thousands of years.

The Truth to the matter is that you are one with Divine, and if you choose, you can know it. It takes a little work, and you will be fulfilled everyday with something of wonderment. Looking through a child's eyes, you will see that life is a lot different without blinders. The biggest problem is that this is what we were taught. There is a god watching us, be good or he'll send you to hell. This is straight out of a book of a dream. Dante decided to write a story about a dream that his character had. This comes so close to deciding your fate as the McDonald's marketing theory.  You go after the young, tell them about the clown, and the burglar, and all the cool animation and characters, and when they actually get there it's, "ain't no clown kid, here's a toy."

But just like being told something was hot, and still having to try and find out, human beings tend to go on without learning much. It does, however, point to our being in white clothes at 40 days after birth, having water poured on your head and being initiated into the church. There you will stay because of the cool little hooky ditties that you will learn...." Jesus loves me yes I know, for the Bible tells me so". Well, good luck finding that passage.  It is a separation tool. Jesus sitting around with children and bunnies and animals is about as much artwork as is the fact that Jesus a is blond haired blue eyed son of god. It seems that everyone else would think that growing up in the middle east, that he would not look like that, and since there is not one shred of literature shining a Jesus upon this planet, or a writer within 180 years of his life, that this is a myth, and only a tool of separation, and if you believe this, a loss of 10% tithing to the church that created it.

The Truth was being taught for many years by Druids. Druids, the Priests of Atlantis, have been around for many years, and of all the experts, no one has come up with a specific date that anyone can agree on. So, as I sit here with Inspiration, writing what comes to me, I cannot craft the words as they come through. The word is that the priests were just that, a way to "The Way".  Following a Druid was not the same as following a religious priest. If you followed the path, that is exactly what you did and were, a human being following the path of a Druid. There was no religion, or dogma that you had to follow. If you needed help, a Bard, a Druid, could help you with your path.  This is what they became. Teachers, healers, and Counselors. That is what they became, and a conduit to the Divine for those that needed it, or could not themselves.

When you decide what you want to believe, you do not need religion to help you. It seems that religion has become one of the best conduits of fighting, hate, and war. Catholics don't like Jews, Jews don't like Muslims, Muslims don't like anyone but other Muslims. Most of the dogma of these supposedly peaceful religions is to "kill the infidels". Christianity's version of what King James version of the Bible says when it says " thou shalt not suffer a witch to live", actually before King James, who was well known for poisoning his enemies, had that verse changed. So, for 1000 years, Witch season was on and 9 million witches were killed or tortured, and many who weren't witches were harassed and or killed. 

So what's the point? Druidry is only a religion to those that study to become one with the religion. Druidry, real Druidry, Ancient Druidry is not about magick as much as it is about working with the Divine Creator as a co-Creator. Working with the Divine Healer as a co-Healer. You, a human being, being trained to accomplish for yourself, what it is that you set out to do on this life - soul journey. Magick is a sub part of Druidry.

Real Druids are in touch with the Divine Spirit, get Inspiration and learn how to live their life path so that their soul journey, and others around them will be fruitful. Not so much as that you get to go see god, because, quite frankly, you are already there. But your life path is one of many to learn where you are supposed to be, to learn to be the best, many lifetimes to grow your life path.

There are real Druids that help you on your life path. There are those that today have that connection, and teach it in their teachings. It is not so much as how many gods you can line up to worship, or who to ask for what it is that is needed, or even that you have to ask the right color or face a correct way to ask. The real Druids don't use the corners except in open ritual with others that expect it. The real Druids don't wear cloaks except when they are doing a rite that deserves one. Real Druids only know that with a built up amount of energy, and focused into the right circumstances, and a knowledge that you are One with Spirit, and you ARE love, that you can create whatever you want, and have been doing so for 17,000 years.
