So I did a trance session today to meet with Taliesin. I was seeking wisdom. Here’s what I got.
First I called upon my Druid spiritual ally Llewelyn to arrange a meeting. He was willing to set it up. He asked me what I seeked. I told him and suddenly we were off.
I was in a forest. Trees everywhere. I called out for Taliesin. Nothing. I called again and a man came skittering around a tree and asked what I wanted. I told him I sought wisdom from Taliesin. He laughed and ran off into the trees.
I ran after him. He would get into my sight for a moment than quickly disappear. This went on for a while. Me chasing and catching up only to be left in the dust. Finally I caught up with him after quite a while and he stood there laughing. He told me he had taught me enough for one day. Then the trance suddenly ended.
What lesson had I been given? What wisdom had I learned? Then it dawned on me. The hunt. The pursuit. That was the lesson to be learned.
I thought about all of the pursuits in my life. The pursuit of knowledge: The pursuit of wisdom. The pursuit of understanding. All these were my pursuits. Perhaps the lesson was that the joy is in the pursuit itself. The Hunt. I need to find the joy and happiness in the action of hunting. Not worry so much about the acquisition. This is a life long chore. Not a passing fancy I need perhaps to accept the pursuit as it’s own reward. Big lesson for me.
So that was my first meeting with Taliesin. Hopefully not the last. Wisdom was gained. What more can I expect from meeting with a deity?
