Our ancestors were wise and capable. Before there was history written in books, our ancestors read the seasons. Before there were churches and temples, our ancestors met in sacred groves beside holy wells. Before there were maps, our ancestors walked with the spirit of the land, guided by the connecting energy of their bodies to the earth.
There is wisdom from the old ones that is still available to us. The elements of this worldly plane – earth, air, fire, and water, the rolling of the seasons, the balance of light and dark, the miracle of new life coming in to form from the realm of the formless, and the mystery of life leaving this plane – are the same for us as for our ancestors. There is great good and deep comfort available for us in using the wisdom from antiquity to nurture our modern existence. Ancient wisdom applied to our life today – these are the gifts available to all here at Ancient Wisdom Online.
