What we are left with is a lot of people who will claim that they are ‘Pagan’ (or one of many other alternative spirituality paths) who will tell you emphatically that they ‘only work with love and light’ and that they ‘couldn’t possibly work with anything negative’. They will claim that this is the answer to all of the worlds ills and evils.
These people do truly believe that all that there is ‘to it’ is to put the intentions of love out into the universe and all the wrongs in the world will be overcome. Result (again) for the people at the top who are now free to run around causing whatever chaos is going to serve them best and to hell with everyone else. The only opposition that they are going to face from this group of ‘free-thinkers’ is a bunch of benignly smiling faces beaming love and light.
On one of the ‘Druid Forums’ I came across a post where somebody was getting there knickers in a twist about the use of the word ‘warrior’. Their point was that we shouldn’t use the word ‘warrior’ as it implied the use of war and aggression and that the Druids of old were exempted from partaking in war.
Firstly in the ‘old’ sense a warrior is somebody who defends, and secondly from what we do know of the ‘Druids of old’ they were capable of stopping warfare by walking into the middle and holding their hands up in a ‘stop’ sign. Why were they capable of doing this? The Druids could do this because they had POWER.
Now, POWER has become another concept that is something to be avoided at all costs. Power is something bad, something that corrupts, something that is seen as an undesirable trait to possess – power hungry, power freak, we should not chase power.
To maintain peace we have to be in control and, like the Druids of old, to be in control we need power. Without power we are weak and unable to defend that which is important to us – Peace.
Third result for the people at the top – they have convinced people following many alternative ‘ways’ to willingly give up their power – just hand it over.
