merry meet )o(
i was going to watch a film last night but gave up after half an hour, taking myself off to be with my music. i said to swampy that it was annoying because it was about such superficial people and things~he did say that he thought the film was supposed to highlight this, but i still found it so annoying.
i have found that so much these days annoy me; the society we live in is so depressing, the lack of respect that people have for others and our earth makes my head hurt.the idea that people have (i know its not everyone, i'm just being general in my use of the word people~its easier on my brain!)the idea that everything has to be bigger and better, that they want more and more material things to make them happy. how far removed they are from the roots of our land and our ancestors. i wonder how many ever even think about it, think about the communities in their round houses and their worship of nature and the moon and the sun. how many follow the rising and setting of moon,the wheel of the year and mark them in a special way. imagine how many thousands there are who know nothing of this, who never watch the sky night to night, look forward with excitement to the next festival and feel the growing power? or think of their next pathworking or meditation or never think to use herbs they have grown themselves in their food or for healing? how many of them would go out into the countryside and feel the life all around them?
i suppose i am very lucky, i was brought up in a tiny village in the New Forest at a time when it was safe for children to roam and play in the woods or on the moors, i was never christened/baptised as my dad wanted me to grow with my own beliefs.
it was dad who introduced me to sacred sites and areas where ancient settlements had been, sometimes driving for hours just to get there. so i suppose you could say that i have been able to grow into what i am today from the begining, although i imagine some people would say that i was brainwashed from childhood, but of course i dont see it that way!
i am thankful that i was given the freedom to follow my path.
