Thanks for the further information, my main point was that Runes were not part of the Celtic or Druidic tradition but of the Germanic tradition which is totally seperate belief sytem.


However, there is nothing preventing me from learning a new skill or language just because I am from Norway. (I'm not from Norway, btw.)

My point being is that as the highlands of Scotland (Pictland) and Ireland were being conquered, people migrated, and kept hidden a lot of the secrets. They were persecuted. Put to death, because of their beliefs. Let's not forget that.

On a side note, I'm 75% German. I'd like to think I have an affinity for the Runic languages. Time will tell.

Would you be at all interested in collaborating to edit your original post into a FAQ (that excludes your nipple photos ;D )? I believe it is necessary on ATS. If not, I may make my own thread to do so.

I so wanted to say the Jesus was a Pagan earlier. Thank you, my friend, for clarifying.
Also, there are missing years in the Christian's bible, from when he was born to the age of 33, when he began his "ministry". Research I have done points to the fact that he traveled to India, and incorporated their beliefs in his message when he got back home.


I think the great thing about Jesus and all the great teachers is that they in themselves were/are not any religion at all but were imo wisdom teachers. Jesus wasn't a Jew or a Christian, he was an Essene but they followed a way rather than a set religion and most likely the last that was publically seen of them were the Cathars, who were fascinating, particularly in their advanced healing methods.

My own teacher once said that when a master dies then what is left can become a religion as the original person is not there any more physically to stop people from creating a system. No true master has a religion while they are alive. It defeats the purpose of a wisdom teaching which really wants the person to go within and find, feel and know the way rather than ritualise it or try to externalise it into a belief rather than a knowing.

Well that's what I think anyway..

You can get drunk if your a wicca can't you?
Iam English so its in my genes to have a beer every now and then.
I love mead

LMAO. WE are Pagan here, not only Wicca. But yeah, if you drink enough, you will get drunk.

I know, I took that out of context. My apologies.

There are no rules to the amount of alcohol you consume. I brew beer from scratch, from grinding the grains, to the patient fermentation process. I have a good friend who taught me the skill, and imbibing alcohol has nothing to do with your beliefs in the Pagan system.

We extracted 78 pounds of honey this year, and I was wanting to make a batch of mead to honor the bees. Do you have any good recipes, or do you just drink at the pub? I know it takes 13 US pounds of honey to make a good mead. I'd like to learn....

No not a problem learning things from different traditions at all. It just seemed from your initial post that you were saying Runes were part of the Druidic tradition is all.

I brew it myself when my mate has got enough spare to let me have some I used this one last time and boy it was good


www.wyrdwords.vispa.com...

I put some heather in it, but I suppose you could put allsorts in it.

Didnt get any honey this year
due to my mate's bee's all dropping dead
.

If I had the space I would have bee's because Iam at one with them since I saved a bumble bee from an horrid ex work mate who captured it and started pulling the legs off it
, nearly came to fisticuff's but I managed to save the bee, I took him outside and let him go, he then flew around my head 3 times and flew to his freedom.
Since that day Bee's seam to always come to me and fly infront of my face for a while
it's like they are saying Thanks

Boy I sure get soppy about bee's

Collaborating means teamwork, so yes I am interested. (btw, the nipples were included for shock value, and have nothing to do with my actual beliefs!)

I'll default to your idea. What do you have in mind? An FAQ? Please explain.....

I was watching a documentary about a group of monk who are pretty special as they follow a much more mystical old way than what would be seen as regular catholic tradition. They have a bee keeper monk whose main job as well as tending to the bees is that he is the person who tells the bees about all that is going on. Whenever something significant happens there, the first ones to be told are the bees and he whispers the news gently to each hive. I thought that was sweet!

Yes. A FAQ, full of questions many Christians or even Pagans may be interested in reading. I can get some started tonight, and we can all work on it in this thread tomorrow. Sound fair? It should be a group project for all of us.

Druid

Could you go into scrying a bit more, please?
I'm interested to hear how you do it properly.
And also do you protect first?

And after years of persecution, the mix is so fuddled that I couldn't help but want to learn, regardless of who created what. It was knowledge, and it was there for me to savor, and learn, and smack my lips with the satisfaction of knowing.

I was stating in my OP that I was a Druid, and that I have learned the Elder Futharck. I am fascinated with ancient traditions, so of course Runes would be on my syllabus.

And that is what has happened. Jesus died, and the system was created. His message has been perverted over the years. It's sad, but you DO see how it works. That's just one example, btw.
