Prelude: Unlike those who govern our lands these days, The Druids were reputed for administering justice and honouring truth.
This is reflected in the Druid’s Prayer, a part of which is repeated below;
“……..And in understanding, knowledge
And in knowledge, the knowledge of justice
And in the knowledge of justice, the love of it
And in the love of it,
The love of all existences ……….”
An old saying which is attributed to Druids is this:
“The Truth Against The World”
Its day is here again, in order to stand against broken moral values, discarded and distorted ethics and a moral compass gone seriously awry in our time.
Here’s a poem I wrote at the start of this millenium which alludes to this theme:
Soothing words of truth which heal
Truthing speech does not conceal
Divine nature outside in
Nature divined to reveal
The Divine within the Divine
Intuiting the future by speaking
The truth in the now.
It is time for the tale of the Dragon to be revised;
It is time for the Earth Dragon to rise up
And this time
Slay St George.
The truth unties
And thus unites
Strength in your Arm
Love in your Heart
Truth in your Tongue
The Truth Against The World
