I know there are those out there that do not like me. Well, probably the majority of you all, and that’s OK. I came off as stern and straightforward, and confident, which is hard for some to take. Folks don’t like that I keep things simple for them to read and define things that some would instead those things not to be defined. We are evolving; things are constantly being defined.
I have been In the Greater Gaulish and Druid Community for some time now, and I love seeing the work that each of you is doing. The Artwork, Poems, Prayers, Recipes, and Deep research on various topics from tribes to animals. It is such a great thing to see Gaulish things help people break out of the self’s shadows and use these things to motivate their momentum. I know it can be hard to share something you are passionate about with the world. The fears that linger outward can harm your approach. Pay no mind to that fear most of the time in our world, which is people talking down about what people are doing because it doesn’t fit with their narrative. Now, of course, we all are not going to agree with everything everyone has done. But we don’t need to go out of our way to bash what folks do. Live with honor towards your virtues.
I look at it like this if I walk into my friend’s house and they point to the wall and say, look at the new painting I just painted. What do you think?
Say I don’t like the painting. Im not going to say those things to destroy the confidence they needed to uplift their spirits. That would be the cruelest act for me to do. Instead, I will say that it is incredible that you learned how to paint and accomplished something that takes dedication and hard work. I love that you painted it because it is more than the finale thing. It is the journey with the self that is the actual painting. They painted themselves the glows and joy they now have. The painting is but a symbol of that.
We must be mindful and treat others as we would like to be treated.
The Gaulish Community is my Tribe, and please do not talk down on it. There are people within a community very smart and passionate people. To disrespect these folks because one disagrees with their stuff is very toxic. Be virtuous and honorable in your actions and words. Be more concerned about how you are presenting yourself. Bashing and name-calling is not cool. It is called being a bully. You can really damage folk’s mental states with simple words.
This Tribe is what makes sense to me. To see it grow more every day is very special to see. To learn new things from each person is magical. Whether that’s art, an article, or simply words is a joy to see all of your contributions.
So you folks that don’t like me or what I’m a part of, please let us do our thing. We don’t go into your places telling you all how to do things. We are trying to be a community and to share with each other our different approaches. It is disheartening to see other people’s work compared to others as that’s not what is about. It’s not a competition or race. It’s not this person or group does it better. I created the Gaulish Polytheism/Galatibessus Website to showcase Everyone’s stuff, no matter if I agree with what they are doing or not. Cause I care about each person that makes up the community.
