" We know much about the Celtic use of language, and its use of poetry, "riddles and dark sayings"* and word play. In poetry we will find the "key" to unlocking the secret language of the Druids. The true secret language of the Druids is the use of literary symbol to communicate religious ideas. "

...........................................................................................

 

Divine Druids of the Celtic race

learned priesthoods of antiquity

builders of the mighty Stonehenge

sacred compass of the celestial visitors

masters of the stars and astral motions

secret exponents of the esoteric

we honour your holy wells and nature shrines

where ritual and allegory embodied your stone temples

in your groves, you sanctified the laws of nature

and taught the traditional doctrine of the soul's immortality

you understood the mystery of reincarnation

as debts incurred in one lifetime will be repaid in the next

and recognised the spiritual enigmas of the landscape

your calendar plotted the lunar and solar cycles 

and your ancient megaliths and stone circles

dot and mark the land, great plinths of navigation and worship

from whence our primeval nature sprang

where arcane ceremonies and sacrifice were performed on high

to appease the immortal gods, and grant fertility of the land

pagan natures, epitomised by the Green Man

and we are all forerunners , heirs and scions of your hands

from the Dawn of Civilisation, the search for wisdom marches on

I've studied the Druids immensely, they being tied to my Wiccan pagan religion. The tree people, the Druids worshipped at the sacred oak groves. The Green Man known in England as Jack in the Green, his image carved in medieval churches. There is a ban on modern-day Druids to celebrate summer solstice at Stonehenge. Another interesting sect in your series, Peter. Very enjoyable! You've brought a vast array of knowledge through these many spiritual disciplines.

When I was VERY young, I had the privilege of visiting these awesome stones and I felt very overwhelmed at the sight of them and hearing the stories and the history behind them. Reading your history/poetry about Stonehenge brought back a lot of memories and I thank you for this! The picture you posted is so very beautiful and mysterious. Thanks again, Peter! Love and God bless from Meredith

Peter, this blew me away totaly.Remarkable high knowledge. I don't have much knowledge about the Celts,( the leaders of the Celts were Druids) but I can tell you they were in a way like the Native Americans into earth mother. I do have roots going back there originaly.I know they relied alot on the days of the moon.I am told over and over that the reason why you are coming out with all this enlightenment teaching is for the pupose I am told of the world reviving into spirit ( a spiritual revival ) is taking place.The words that come through you will become more and more profound, I know because I've been through major channeling that came through above. Your hearing the Ascended Masters speak.They are coming to you in diffrent ways by the thousands.I also see healing. I see souls wanting information. I see you looking out a window and they are all coming to you from the window, I'm told by the thousands. I've gone through it too. I think the Arch Angles are radiating within me, espeacialy right now. We will know that magical, wonderment, place one day of greatness, beauty, healing, service, unconditional love, grace and forever praise up above..We will hear Almighty being praised everywhere forever. Constant singing to God forever. I meditate on Thomas Kinkades paintings to bring back focus, clairity and voice from above. I take myself there imagining beautiful places. This kind of information you speak of is spoken by all the Ascened Masters including Mary, mother Of Christ.I pray for you to continue to recieve wisdom and share it. Thank you so much for this stirring, powerful and beautiful imagery, Peter..As always, your writes are so powerfuly annointed..

((( Hugs And Love, JoAnne )))

The Druid's life, still yet unknown,
Is carved for all upon the stone
And leaves a lasting legacy
For all who open eyes to see.

Look beyond the visible!

A most informative and enjoyable series, Peter! May your pen continue to inscribe with truth and understanding.
Reviewed by A. Santo 4/4/2006
As always your poetry sits on the page brimming with information. I haven't studied much on Druids but was always mesmerized by their megaliths. I believe that all people of all lands know our Creator in their own ways and have hidden wisdoms that we all could learn from. This verse is an excellent example of that. Wisdom destroys ignorance and unites us all in knowledge. Thank you dear Peter.

The search goes on sure, but their wisdom lives on in the hearts and minds of many, they are teaching us still.

Peter,

You pen an excellent series here, educating the world on the various beliefs of mankind. Everyone searching...yet the Bible is clear: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man cometh unto the Father but by Me (Jesus).

I know a Druid of today. His intelligence is exemplurry and his goodness is well defines. I also know someone called The Green Man.Both are more spiritual than most and when in their company electricity runs everywhere throughout their aura. The Druids still exists in Brittany where they will always find their core being. I appreciate your writings here Peter. They give me a taste of every spirit out there. Keep writing. I'm reading it all.

Indeed it does Peter and I wonder at times where that wisdom will lead the world as we know it. God gave us two tablets with His words inscribed thereon to lead us to heaven but that wasn't enough so He sent His only son to die for us and lead us out of the darkness of sin and be our guiding light to His heavenly Kingdom.
