Human Decay and the Return to Our Primeval Origins (Philip Carr Gomm, Chief of OBOD)


(Background music: Dead Can Dance “Frontier”)

All around the world there is a revival of the Ancient Ways.

People are returning to indigenous religions and ideas.

Why is this happening?

In one of his podcasts, Philip Carr Gomm (the chief of the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids) gives his perspective.

He says that many of the main religions have reached a point of maturity.

While I don’t want to bend his words – this could mean that these mainstream religions have reached a point of death. All around the world, people are realizing that the system just isn’t working. The pre-dominant religious ideas aren’t solving man’s problems and the environmental crisis is getting worse. Culturally and spiritually humanity is experiencing a sort of metaphorical death. At a deep subconscious level – we know that something ominous is ahead like crows warning of a coming storm. That’s not what Phillip said, but that’s my point of view.

What Phillip did say is that we are like Salmon before death. Before death, salmon swim upstream to the point of their origins. Like salmon, humanity – in the face of a spiritual and environmental crisis – is swimming upstream to return to their primordial origins – to return to the ancient indigenous ways before it’s too late.

You can listen to the entire interview with Phillip here at OBOD podcasts.

Wow, the idea that we people of the earth who are not blocked by the dams of civilization are swimming back to our Mother Ocean to spawn new life, going back to our pagan roots of our foremothers and forefathers is kinda mind blowing, a Great analogy.
