>>17219437 Sure, but we don't post about it on /x/, or write books about it. It's something more earthly bud, though asking around about it you're not likely to find wiccans. I've no issues discussing the idea behind it all, but not on 4chan, sorry.
I'm guessing its because the Celts didn't have a written language and there aren't many records of Celtic culture let alone druidic practices. Most record of the Celts come from the Romans, and they're exactly impartial about their enemies.
So basically, most knowledge of the druids is conjecture based on their enemy's propaganda.
>>17219523 Wiccans took a beautiful belief system and turned it into the earliest model of D&D. >>17219512 There's nothing hip about it, I believe what I believe in and experience things accordingly, as do you for your own reason. >>17219503 Sorry that was a typo, see>>17219468 >>17219494 Not really sure, there's email but I'd have to make a throw away account.
>>17219580 As another guy said, there was no written language for the Celts, whose religious and spiritual belief systems are what druidism is based off of. There are books and even older writings of the practices and idealogies, but most of them are more related to Christianity, Roman, and Scandinavian cultures after centuries of cultural influence. This is what druidism has become, and you can view it as refined or diluted, it's all subjective. As for myself, I've good relations with Celtic relatives and have been spoken to about the workings and base behind one of the older beliefs, have found it to be true to myself, and built my own beliefs alongside all of that older system. Would you be less hateful if I wrote down everything I've observed and know, or would you continue to mock me and my beliefs? If you're answer is the latter, which is safe to assume, then I'm just wasting my time trying to explain anything to you because your mind is made and set to your own idea of things. There's nothing wrong with that, but being scornful of others because they prefer deep, intimate conversation over the SparkNotes version posted on a Taiwanese tapestry forum for people to shitpost all over is nothing to feel good about. Learning and progress have a lot in common with patience and acceptance.
>>17219580 Since you've got me writing paragraphs in defense of something you could care less about outside of incessantly shitposting to satiate some need for superiority, I may as well bump the thread with some 2 spoopy right?
Is it really necessary to always seeking the old authentic things? The Way always find a way to us. The occult knowledge will never be forgotten as it is in us. You must create your own paradigm. Looking for authenticityis just masturbation and fear.
There are stil druids in here but they don't look like what we imagine.
>>17221740 Authenticity is never truly authentic. Most occult knowledge are written in a form that works for its original user, but not especially for the average joe. Plus, I think that knowledge should evolve instead of staying "primitive". But I still really wonder what modern druidism could look like.
>>17221754 You know you want to do it anyway. Cmon go find out about your inner skeleton, all you need to do is slit your wrist to leak the skeleton-binding liquiq.
>>17221770 Modern druidism would be something like a murder cult. Druids, at least according to Ceasar, who is about the only source and not very reliable at all., were extremely powerful and had almost complete control over their people. Archaeology has at least proven that human sacrifice was common among Celts.
>>17221801 No, but their colorful rituals and sacred sites are almost unique in Europe - and that is without taking Ceasars propaganda in account. Only the neolithic Herxheim comes close to their sites.
