A brilliant blog post by Alison Leigh Lily, which has sparked something very special in my path through the forest!
The latest issue of the Alternative Religions Educational Network’s newsletter just came out this past weekend, and I was excited to be included as one of those featured in an interview with the editor, Christopher Blackwell. We chatted about my background being raised in a liberal Catholic tradition flavored by my father’s Irish heritage, and how that shaped my spiritual journey towards Druidry as I live and practice it today. It was great fun! One thing we touched on was the Oran Mór, or the Song of the World. Chris asked me to talk a little bit more about how this cosmological concept is reflected in my Druidry. You can read the excerpt here, or check out the whole interview.
Reblogged this on contemplativeinquiry and commented:
This is a reblog of a reblog, with Joanna van der Hoeven’s Down the Forest Path as an intermediary. I too find the Oran Mor a very resonant image. It’s discussed in Jason Kirkey’s Salmon in the Spring as reported and also by Frank MacEowan in the Celtic Wheel of the Year and The Mist Filled Path. Great that’s it’s getting more attention.
I know what it is .. I know what it is .. you make food .. he stirs the food .. you being with a Druid . . and make for the water a song of token . . I know what to do .. not add milk to the coding . . the food is too hot , so stir and be ready for the Passover of milton . . and now I know what to do .. save the planet we live on . . and make us food .,. instead of money . Is that the song you mean ./. 🙂
I think the song changes, depending on who is listening, but brilliant words!
