Greetings, my friends. I've been asleep for a long time. Working close to the Great Mother means that Winter is a time of deep slumber and dreaming for me, as well. I begin now to awaken at Imbolc.... In the Asatru (Norse) tradition, Odin acquires the Wisdom of the Runes by sacrificing Himself to Hi...

Thanks for that explanation. That makes a lot of sense to me. I think that my conception some part or perception of Yahweh being potentially synonymous with the Demiurge comes from some of the commentaries which have been written concerning the "Old Testament God" versus the "New Test...

Forgive what I am certain is a naive question, In reference to my last post, can YHVH represent the "God of the World", born of and emanating the Four Elements, with Shin (which strikes me as a masculine energy, although tradition doesn't label It as such) being a masculine, impregnating f...

I know this is an old topic for the group, but I am new to this forum and am having a wonderful time exploring all this "Treasury of Light"! You all are wonderful and wise, and I look forward to learning from you! I wonder if this passage could be referring to a vision I once had and the i...

Thanks, Tau Malachi. My interpretation of this is that, when we were more primitive, we were animals, incapable of aspiring to the Light, and that we returned to what my tradition refers to as "The Otherworld" (or Annwn) as animals. Additionally, we slew each other in the name of our "...

Tau Malachi, Is this expression perhaps simply a way of referring to our absorption into the Infinite Light? The reference to humans sacrificing humans now that they have become gods seems to imply to me that we, as a race, have attained a level of development where we may return to the Light, hence...

Greetings, Brooke. I personally believe that nothing, in and of itself, is good or bad. The angels within I regard as anabolic (building), while the demons are catabolic (deconstructionists). They are both necessary beings in the evolution of the soul. Regarding angels as "good" and demons...

Are you familiar with the concept of quantum entanglement? Two or more quanta (particles or photons, but could just as easily be souls) born from the same state are linked at a very fundamental level. For example, split a photon into two, and whatever the one experiences, so does the other, no matte...

Greetings, Sister. Peace, Love, and Awen be with you. I think that complexes of thoughts create angels and demons within one's soul. These internally-generated folk are kin, but separate from, those of the universe-at-large. Angels and Archangels, I believe, are Lords and Ladies of Order, and can st...

I do not claim to be the wisest of the Wise and am new to this forum, but here is my own personal take on this matter is explained by the following image: Picture a Luminous Sea, completely composed of Light energy (I refer to this substance as "Lux" to distinguish It from ordinary light)....

Thanks

Thanks, Paul. I appreciate the well wishes and the symbol of the Awen in your post. I have looked at the St. Uriel forum, and, as with several of the forums, see nice extensions/correlations with the nature-based side of my faith. Druidry is an extremely fluid way of being. Unlike many paths which a...

Greeting to all, and blessings of Awen

Greetings, my new friends. I go by the name of Merlin, in honor of the Sage (the poet, visionary, and mystic Myrrdin) from whom I gain my deepest inspiration. As Merlin, did, I live in the depths of a lovely wood, sadly not in Britain, but in Bensalem, PA. I have been affiliated over many years with...
