This is a sweeping, Druidic perspective on Ebola, ecosystems and the transient condition of overriding Nature. Thanks to Ann K at exopermaculture for the link. I have always found Druids to be great thinkers, and this article does not disappoint in that regard. As we hover before what seems like a carefully calculated and summoned “Perfect Storm” in America, set to roil across the world, it’s both humbling and awe-inspiring to contemplate larger cycles of life.
Yesterday, I read a different article — this one by a Roman pagan — that provides a tender and empowering look at the spiritual aspects of preparedness. Two quotes jumped out at me from that blog, which seem to riff with the post below:
“When you, entering a forest, perceive the beauty of the forest and you feel to be in a complete harmony with it, then, intuitively, you are in peace with the Deities. They are an essential part of our real nature, our Deep Nature, and when we are separated by our real nature we live in the fear. Perceiving such normality means giving a real sense to our lives.”
