This is the introductory episode to place the podcast on iTunes and to let you know what’s involved, so welcome!
The Zen Druid Symbols were received by Redocean Cerrydwin during 2004. Each Symbol is a word picture setting the tone and direction for each day of the year. Seemingly simple, they are deceptively deep in their instruction. Each Symbol was received at random and written down on one of a series of 366 cards. Each card represented one day of the Celtic Tree year and the card had been shuffled. When rearranged into the correct order, patterns, synergies and an overall direction to the year became apparent. This podcast version of the symbols represents an update to the original published version of 2008.
You can begin this podcast at any time of the year. I will be publishing daily episodes from 24th of December or as it is also named: the first day of Birch. This is because the episodes are arranged according to the Celtic Tree Calendar with Gregorian calendar dates alongside for ease and convenience. To give a context the “Cosmology of the Zen Druids” follows immediately. Finally, enjoy the journey for that is why we are here.
The Cosmology of the Zen Druids.
In the beginning that which cannot be named gave forth a thought and the breath of life surged into being. Outward and inward where its directions and creation was made manifest. Those two initial flows are mirrored in all of existence in the forms of day and night, the waxing and waning of the moon and the dark and light halves of the year. Creation is further made up of individuals whose lives follow the two directions of the initial breath. We abide in the other realms between lives, reviewing, planning and assessing our experiences. There are many worlds we visit to learn different aspects of ourselves. In these other realms exist the Goddesses, the Gods and other ways of learning. This Earth is the plane of experience. We come here to learn the effects of energy in motion which we shorthand to emotion. We live a life, return to the other realms, analyse, review and prepare to return. After sufficient visits we take on roles as teachers to those still returning and eventually we are subsumed deeper, closer to that which cannot be named.
